Defining YOUR happiness

This  post below was written en route to New Delhi where I am now,just to arrived  and heard from my mother  who was worried for me about  MH370 , my thoughts are prayer are with  all onboard.....thanks to  relatives who called  just to check if  I am not on that plane.

Defying the liquid stream of time.

I know, I know  I had tried hard to  try and write often but with  this hectic schedule and few  tasks that requires delegating  I am lost  in  my  “I can’t be bothered attitude”.

“Can’t be bothered “ in the sense where I do not know how to start and thought I might as well not start at all. when I start to type with my finger dancing on this keypad  ,I start to get emotional and starts to get sentimental and that is not healthy , at least not for this moment at certain point I feel that as a personal blogger who writes  an online journal I should also  keep some portion of this beautiful life experience  to myself.

Often away from home, I have lost this balance in life where  you exercise, meet friends over the weekend, spend time with family ,attend to your family, do gardening and  be in touch with your spiritual side as a human being.

I  slipped  at those, I neglected so many things that means a lot to me, my friends misses me and thought  that I had forgotten them , I lost  grip of knowledge of what is going on  at home , my weight and health fluctuates  dramatically in graph from up   to down and up, up again  plus  etc, etc  department that needs improving in my life.

But then, after this talk with my mom and my hairdresser  Anne Tan at her shop yesterday I realized that I am not alone,  as usual I often think for myself in my own selfish realm  called kingdom azura, I think we all have to make a little bit of sacrifices  bit of here and there and now with my task at MEC3 I feel  appreciated and  I am in the position where I am not only managing but I call it challenging myself on a daily basis   and up until today I can say that my challenges are tackled well ,some with grace and elegance and some with  insanity.I am happy   despite not having to balance it up with my life,Deep inside ,I am happy and that is the most important thing.

This post  is specially dedicated to mothers , wives, daughters who  have dreams and not afraid to reach them , despite all the challenges of long hours away from home, unnecessary  dramas and turmoil we made it this far and for your dreams  to come true please never ever give up, because you are not alone I am here cheering up for you because you are here reading this while  praying for me too.

Life is not perfect, you can’t make everyone happy, but you can start with making yourself happy.

Big  hug, may all your wish may come true..

From hot to cold

Happy  Christmas happy new year,

I have been reading loads lately from Paulo Coelho to educational books,  and also had been working loads (nothing new ain't it?)

Food Hotel Indonesia in Bali- Chef's challenge.

Nusa Dua
.Since I have been traveling I had more or less abandoned this blog, I never intended to write for money  though, back then this was a channel for me to express my anger and frustrations.

Then here comes the travels...

I wrote this the first time with so much things to say but now they have all  diluted into vapor that later transformed into supernova of colors.

Lately I have been playing  working  around Bali ,Shanghai, Singapore, jakarta , Singapore  among few to mention

and  2 family trips to Malacca, one because we were looking for a poster bed and  i managed to get myself a parking ticket and second time because i wanted to  pay my parking summon which was a nightmare.

Cities of vibrant colors and food. cities of wonderful people.Please enjoy these pictures...

That's how much I love burgers?...and chips?

I was trying to give  an over the top pose, and it worked.

Taking chances... again and again ... and again

It's all about running.

I am trying to juggle so many things in my life at the moment, blessed with an amazing family  who are always very supportive with what I do,friends who are always there for me there is nothing else I could ask for.
Syukur, gratitude...alhamdulilah

I have  few surprises in store, but you have to wait until the place finally can be called "a store" -that's a  discreet hint eh? ;)

My lucid reality.

It has been a while that I write , like really WRITE.
Having your own blog especially  a personal blog that revolves around your routine would automatically revealed yourself,  to the world.I am trying to find that balance  in between my  reality  of being a full time product chef  that requires me to maintain not only my integrity but also my  company's, and my fantasy of being a writer that touches many aspect  of everything under the moon.

At the moment the space I between my dreams  and reality is put  to the  test on daily basis I am thinking of people whom I love dearly, people who left us, people  who put  smiles on my face...I think of our good times  and to be honest , I do not know how to tell this feeling anymore that every time I am  flying, I looked outside each time, all the time... wondering in between cirrus and cumulus   that   they somehow are in peace as much as peaceful  and white as the  cotton candy cloud  makes me feel.
it's been years  that my father left us and  i lost my grandfather this year's march.I wish we have more time together, I wish  we could all eat lush food  and relax on weekend such as today, but I also know  that the mightiest power  loves you more.I succumbed to this fact,obliged to that fate present to me.

This morning I got up in my own bed at home, nothing compares  to that scent of your  own room.Went  for coffee with my mum and end up getting  a rattan shelve that my mother suggested for me to keep all my lotion and potions,  my clients love giving me all this fancy  pricey lotions :) thanks a lot.

I know somewhere out there you too are thinking of me too.happy Eid people, selamat raya haji.
