Often times we lose track of life and the meaning of it because we’re so caught up with being busy. I also find that happiness is just a label for an emotion, but as humans we need to make sense of things all the time, to qualify situations and feelings and things. Gretchen Rubin’s “Happiness […]

I wasn’t sure what to expect with the book and picked it up out of curiosity because of it’s interesting title. It’s a hilarious light hearted read where an editor of a publishing house (for food books no less) goes on a roadtrip with a Rinpoche orchestrated by his hippie new age sister, after their parents […]

I don’t remember when I stopped caring about social media and the meaningless numbers for likes and followers. I’m still blogging as I used to since 17 years ago?! It took me a long time, but I finally found peace with work and no longer struggle with the social media façade. I have moved into more […]

I found his second book a little less accessible than the first, there’s a lot of mastery and “high level” enlightenment that is difficult to comprehend as it comes with tens of thousands of […]

I am so grateful that the husband got last minute resale tickets to Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour a couple of hours before Sunday’s performance in Studio City Macau  (intimate arena with great acoustics) at a quarter of the price. There were many people trying to sell off their tickets at the last minute and we suspect […]

Often times we take for granted life itself and how quickly everything moves around us, the stress, the pressure, the insecurities all thrown in together, we forget to practice a little kindness to ourselves and mindfully live the present moment. This series of Self Care Ted talks are also brilliant for emotional band aid and […]

(rainy, cold and very quiet long walk along the longest coast of the North Sea in St Peter Ording, Germany – excellent for self reflection and practising, endurance and mindfulness!) Mindfulness has been a buzz word in the last year or so – but what does it really mean to be mindful? I started this […]

Apologies, I’ve been a little silent and slow on the blogging front and trying to live the moment, learning better mindfulness and awareness as I make sense of living in strange and wonderful Macau, while leaving my career in Hong Kong behind to join the ranks of trailing spouses to become “wife of a chef” […]
