With fellow optometry colleagues
At our annual dinner and dance ball...
-improved cooking skills
-discovered that grocery shopping, washing dishes, cleaning toilets and doing laundry can actually be relaxing (call me weird)
-Starting to understand why Joyce loves grocery shopping, perhaps linked to the female psychology of guilt-free cash spending ?
-too much socialising with friends, not enough sleep
-no time to think, always go go go
-starting to dislike the monotonous working lifestyle of being a refraction monkey
-enjoying free salsa dancing, live music, meeting cute singaporean boys every friday night at Union Square
-becoming obsessed with latino jam classes at california fitness
-photography sessions at the zoo, beach, everywhere.
-gotta stop shopping on impulse, accumulating lots of things and wondering how I'm able to bring them back to Austalia
-nearly got conned into modelling and people claiming that I'd won holidays overseas
-more travelling forecasted: whip into a shopping frenzy, swim in the ocean, camp under the stars, shower under waterfalls, climb the peak, kayak around Harlom bay, touch the sky, appreciate colorful culture, make lifelong friends...
-learning (slowly) to think and decide on my own

"NOW" is a gift, that's why they call it "THE PRESENT"
Travel life has the essence of a dream.
It is something outside the normal,
yet you are in it.
It is peopled with characters you have never seen before
and in all probability will never see again.
It brings occasional homesickness, and loneliness,
and pangs of longings...
But you are like the vikings who have gone into a world of adventure,
and home is not home until you return.
But home is where the heart is.
So where is home?
Dance like no one is watching
Love like you've never been hurt
Sing like no one's listening
Live like it's heaven on earth
Chocolate flows in deep dark, sweet waves, a river to ignite the mind and alert the senses...
Unexpected events in our daily lives are like different flavors that lie waiting beneath each chocolate cover.
Just like Forrest Gump explained:
"Life is like a box of chocolate, coz you never know what you're gonna get"
