I’m Back! + What to Expect When You’re Not Expecting

Hello all!

It has been a time. I came back from Hong Kong a few days ago and honestly, it’s a little disappointing to return to weather that hasn’t changed much more than when I left. Even worse – we seem to have hit the rainy and windy season! It’s good for staying indoors though so there’s that. 😛

I’m still a little jet-lagged which is unusual but I really think it’s down to us trying out an earlier flight this time rather than the late one we always take. By the time we officially came back to our home (because we unluckily missed the initial coach by like 5 minutes and had to wait a further 2 hours for the next one AND pay for new tickets), it was 03:30. I ended up eating 3 meals after that, watched a film in-between at some point and finally crashed at 20:00.

Some of you may have been following my Instagram Stories or may have just simply caught up with my latest post and realised that I was away. I had an amazing time in Hong Kong – attending my brother’s wedding in particular was the highlight. I have a whole story for that on Instagram so I won’t be blogging about it (I think some things should be left quite private and intimate anyways). I will however be writing up a travel story and a beauty summary of what I purchased on my trip.

For those who have been really following me, I have to say – it’s quite a nice feeling to not have to come back to a job that makes you miserable. I relaxed a lot and not that I felt pain necessarily, but it was nice to not dwell on anything and just enjoy my trip. I feel invigorated and look forward to whatever my future holds.

The truth is – I don’t know what to expect but I feel less scared about it. This year, I feel that I’m really prepared for change. Fear is one of those things that don’t really exist but our mind unnecessarily projects it so we have to fight against it constantly. Ironically, the fear is something that we have created ourselves.

Again, I don’t know what to expect but I’m working towards something.

What have you been up to lately?

  1. Welcome back! I’m glad you had a wonderful time and I can’t wait to see your haul! Not only is it nice to not have to come back to a job you hate, but you can also come back and slowly work off your jetlag instead of trying to do it while working. You should be looking forward to what’s coming ahead!

    I just watched your IG highlights of your brother’s wedding, and it looked amazing! I used to think tea ceremonies were old-fashioned too, until we did it for our wedding and I experienced how meaningful they really are.

    • That’s really cool that you did it for your wedding too! One thing I like that makes it more modern I guess, is when the groom and his best men go to collect the bride from her home, they have to partake in a few trials beforehand and the games are always hilarious!

      Spring is coming soon so it’s good seasonal timing for change and new beginnings. 🙂
