Time Management







November is always a month that is filled with surprises and this year's aren't that much difference.

I know I had been really bad with updating my blog , that is because after Milan and Venice, I had a mild case of bronchitis (cough ,cough non stop).I am better now and ready to kick off again with busy schedules.

Talk about schedule of mine... the truth is I am always very busy lately, as a Corporate Chef with a World class  Italian  company who is in charge of activities in Asia, my time is limited for my hobbies and loved ones and that is why I have to say Sayonara,selamat tinggal, au revoir to my column 'Salam Chef Azura' at SAJI food magazine .A Malay language magazine by Utusan.




They always say, the 2 hardest things to say in life are
'Hello' at the beginning and 'Goodbye' at the end. That is how I feel but , With average of 4 countries to visit every month promoting Orveds sous vide cooking system( a brilliant yet accurate method of cooking), I constantly deals with Big players in my industry,businessmen and food techs and that requires a lot of time and knowledge.When I come back home I got paperworks AND a column, a book to take care of and restaurant consulting as well.To be honest, how busy I am...Let me tell you, I already know my schedule up to June 2010! SO I hope those who had sent me e mails won't be asking why I stopped writing .Thank You so much for your support of Salam Chef Azura and as a new writer nothing means more than your mails and comments.



Bigger picture coming 2010


When I was about to put my pen down, I remember about the call I received from The Editor of a reknown International Food magazine who had approached me to write after, few mails and phone calls after our first talk, I have decided to only write again next year once my schedule has calm down.I know I should not give up and put my love towards writing away.


My mum is smiling at the moment...I know mum, I just can't forget my first love and no matter where I go and what I do, I will always write, just like cooking...it is an insatiable lust of mine.

Somewhere only we know


I finally could steal some time to actually write something on here.As usual life have been very busy and last week I had made one of the biggest purchase in my life.I realized that I need to update Sayangku Azura more often...sigh... too many to do, so little time.

Many things are new such as my brothers new blanket that mum made,new revelations, new computer, new hair :).These were the things that I blogged about before,now that this is being less personal and more general, I have less to complain about life or society.I have come to realized if this world will take innocent victim like me and bring it down from time to time...by all means, do so, while I carry on doing my own thing.
History does not repeat itself but it does rhyme
And when it rhymes, will it take it with me together again?

I think I am a much wiser woman now.
Only time will tell...I guess.
