It's been a while since I last blogged. My previous apartment had the worst internet connection, so I guess I just stopped. Maybe I'll get back into it slowly again...
I just had the most massive meal cooked by my parents tonight, the lobster was about 1 meter long, no kidding. Everyone was talking loudly and randomly in true fuqin style. I just had to shake my head and smile. Yup, I'm home.
Ahhh Melbourne, hate it or love it it's still my city. Eventually I will be back one day for good, deep down I know it. Perhaps it's the family, the friends, and maybe also that yearning for that bit of stability and big city girl lifestyle. I'm excited at the prospect.
At the meantime, I'm sweating it out under the swelting 30 degree heat, feeling bloated thanks to the 'da nian 30' meal tucked inside under my belt/dress.
Finally, Happy Chinese New year everyone!! Apparently the year of the dog was bad luck for the puppies (I am one), so thus I heartily embrace the year of the pig, bring it on, whoohoo!
Better luck this year puppies ;)

"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"
