(Above:We still look the same after 10 years! Catching up with the old 'spice girls' gang from high school)
Smartly dressed, smiling and strutting around with an extra spring in my step, I joked to one of my best friends on the phone that I'm experiencing my 'honeymoon high' period. Honeymoon with the city of Melbourne that is.
These days I'm living the kind of lifestyle I envisioned several months ago. No longer do I dream of that sex and the city style girly catch ups, nights out with mates in trendy bars/clubs, lattes under undrenched sidewalk cafes and homely family dinners. I'm finally living this sort of lifestyle right here right now-in this vibrant city, voted one of the most liveable in the world. The autumn air is crisp and buzzing with electricity, fashion dresses flowing, music pumping and streets filled with ethnic culinary delights, street performances and funky fashion.
After figuring out the right work-life balance, with a sense of satisfation in helping the public, and the interesting prospect of striking up fascinating conversations with people from all walks of life-my job is actually enjoyable and suits me well.
The future is painted with a rainbow of possibilities. I plan to finally tap into and work on my creative interests, as well as thinking about money and investments. Oh and perhaps meet the man of my dreams. Hehe.

"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"
