In List on November 12, 2016 at 11:20 PM

200338451-002

I am the most inspired that I have ever been. I’m not sure what exactly am I doing right but for sure…

  1. I have a dream of publishing my second book and I am looking forward on that.
  2. I cannot stop being grateful with all the beautiful blessings and challenges that I have on my plate.
  3. I am hopeful that whatever sufferings there are in the world, it won’t hurt my soul, but I can do something to alleviate even a bit of what’s wrong, and it can start that I be kind “anyway”.
  4. I smile and I make the effort to be positive.
  5. I let go of the things that I couldn’t control.
  6. I pour my heart in the works that I do.
  7. Be not attached with both success and failures. Still practicing this though.
  8. Love other people even if I don’t get love back.
  9. Appreciate my accomplishments and celebrate in the privacy of my solidarity.
  10. Celebrate and do what makes me at peace in the moment.

[1: 1,794 of 10,000] My Biggest Travel Mistakes

In List on November 6, 2016 at 12:00 AM

travel-disaster-1

  1. Not checking the weather and then packing the wrong clothes.
  2. Overpacking.
  3. Under packing.
  4. Not having a plan even if at the end you’ll discard the plan.
  5. Fighting with travel companion instead of enjoying the tour.
  6. Leaving loose ends at work ending working during travel or thinking about the office.
  7. Not reading about the country visiting for the first time. It helps to appreciate history if you actually read about it.
  8. Too much itinerary that it’s more of a pain like too much walking or rushing to the next one than appreciating the essence of the place.
  9. Not signing a reliable tour guide.
  10. Booking a hotel away from the city proper.

Cliff

  1. Travel to me means going to a new country that I’ve never been and soak in a lot of first time experience so be very open.
  2. Stick to plan or deviate to the plan, the most important part is enjoying the journey. It’s not the time to argue with anyone either with travel companion or with the locals or other tourists. Relax, be chirpy happy, and don’t sweat the small stuff.
  3. Try the local cuisine. Try to be as local as you can be to really know the culture of the country you’re visiting.
  4. Go to tourist attractions or discover a new haven which is not necessarily popular. The travel is all about you too so suit what matches your taste. Blend it yet don’t be afraid to stand out. You’re a beautiful creature after all.
  5. Bring the essentials, don’t overpacked especially on clothes, although I’ve been guilty of bringing a little bit of too much. It is indeed comforting to know that I will never ran out of options on what to wear but there’s always shopping locally. 😉
  6. Be mindful and sensitive about what’s sacred or holy in the country. It is always good to be respectful.
  7. Setting your own driver and sort of tour guide ahead of time could worth it especially if you’re like me who is not really keen of going with lots of crowd. This will give you special attention and comfort not to wait on anyone.
  8. Depending on budget, booking with 5-star hotel is the most convenient way for safety and ensuring all the pampering will be expected; but if budget is a little tight then go a star down or contact a friend with big apartment.
  9. Bring both cash and credit card. Cash as much as possible must be the country’s own currency or go for the almost universal currency US dollar anywhere except in european countries go for Euros.
  10. Take pictures but not necessarily too much pictures especially nowadays that sharing too much in social media is kind of addicting or ego tends to boast. My biggest dream is to make it big time that I would tag along a real photographer to take my photos either candidly or artistically while I am out and about. The real beauty is to appreciate what you already see in the present, connect with nature or performance, and imprint the memories in your subconsciuous kind of thing.

[1: 1,687 of 10,000] The Good & The Bad

Parisian

I am so happy to the new lesson that I’ve learned this week… I shall love the good and the bad in me. It’s not about being tolerant of my bad behaviour but more still loving my weaknesses that I fumble and I believe I do so because I needed others to be my strength on those parts. Isn’t that wonderful?

I am not going to hurt myself by being harsh on the things that I can never be good at but treat it with kindess and gentleness that I am not a perfect being and that’s absolutely all right.

Inspired by Elizabeth Gilbert, Liz explained it so well in her facebook post so better read hers first before moving on to my list below –

  • I love the part of me who is ashamed that I wasn’t always prepared with my work assignments and embarrass myself infront of my bosses.
  • I love the part of me who is worried of the million things that could go wrong.
  • I love the part of me who is clueless about what others are truly feeling and I judge them incessively.
  • I love the part of me who is egotistical.
  • I love the part of me who wanted to be lazy and sleep all day.
  • I love the part of me who is guessing and cross my fingers that they work. Yay!
  • I love the part of me who wants to control everything.
  • I love the part of me who has opinion on everything and have a blatant way of saying it.
  • I love the part of me who kept missing sleeping on my bed everynight and wonder why I feel tired the following day.
  • I love the part of me who loves food and admits that I am fat.

The Path

The path –

  1. Ponder for a plan, a great goal.
  2. Start moving towards the realisation.
  3. Stumble, make mistakes, and always enjoy the journey.
  4. Pause, rest, and admire where it’s all been.
  5. Move again.
  6. Share, mentor, and be grateful.
  7. Repeat, improve, and challenge to get elevated in every new plan.

And it’s that simple but not as easy. Along the way, I needed to put all these magical ingredients –

  1. Believe on myself.
  2. Have faith for a higher order of things and learn to surrender about the result.
  3. Pour love, dedication, and time.
  4. Learn and work with others, but never forget my own personal journey that only I can sense it.

Live gregariously! No self-doubt, no hesitation, and no giving up.

What are we waiting for? 😉

[1: 1,671 of 10,000] Is The End Goal Leaving A Legacy?

In List on December 12, 2015 at 8:37 AM

Behind

I am contemplating about the word legacy. It sounds perfect and marvelous but in a way, it also denotes that I am more after to the future that I would leave behind. So my current goal is not really leaving a legacy but “to live each day that I would leave the world better than I found it.” It sounded more present and conscious as daily guiding compass.

How do I do that?

  1. Laugh and smile sincerely.
  2. Accomplish task/s with love.
  3. Connect with my loved ones.
  4. Be grateful for my life.
  5. Help someone.
  6. Learn, live it, and share.
  7. Hope for the best.
  8. Solve a problem. One at a time.
  9. Create.
  10. Stay positive, optimistic, and kind.

 

 

 

[1: 1,656 of 10,000] Auntie Ina Garten

Ina Garten

My circle of family and friends is so small that my sister and I got accustomed to call Ina Garten, yes the American author and host in Food Network, auntie. We both wanted her to be our real life auntie and be invited at her Hampton home and be served with delicious food.

  1. We love how she prepares big portion like there’s always a party. Whenever I cook in the weekend, I do the same, even if the actual number of people who will finish it is two, just my sissy and I. 😛
  2. We appreciate whenever she taste what she prepares in big spoon, she’s being very authentic and real on TV.
  3. She’s always gracious whenever she invites other chefs in her show; like she herself is a fan and learning. She’s quite humble.
  4. She loves her hubby and the hubby equally loves her. Both are very romantic and extra sweet.
  5. She has her own garden for both herbs, vegetables, and marvelous flowers.
  6. A lot of her friends are gay, artistic, very proper, and they love her.
  7. We are fond whenever she uses “good” olive oil, “good” vanilla, or basically everything she uses are good and we wonder if there’s a brand called “good” somewhere. 😀
  8. She uses simple techniques but effective.
  9. Watching her cook is comforting.
  10. I love my Auntie Ina because she looks very real, very human, and very kind. My “very” here is my take of her “good”, got it? 🙂

 

[1: 1,642 of 10,000] Someone To Call As Boo

In List on November 5, 2015 at 11:59 PM

Boo

A seed is being planted within me that I am starting to explore that I could try having a boo (someone to love and loves me just the same). I contemplate how would I call him, I am avoiding the babe, honey, and sweetheart; so I am settling with boo. Isn’t it funny, I thought of the endearment call before I even know his name. 😛

What is my criteria again? Or having known things, what is my criteria now?

  1. A successful entrepreneur or artist but not just a company employee who depends his income from a monthly salary. I am in the same boat, pay cheque to pay cheque, but I am going to change that to match him. I want somebody who is successful because it means he’s decisive, has aspirations, and determined to get it.
  2. Loyal. I know in my heart that I am going to be a faithful partner so I hope to attract someone committed to a monogamous relationship. He must be single, hopefully never married, and definitely not married who is eligible to marry 4 wives.
  3. Smart or man of many talents and skills. It must be given if he’s a successful entrepreneur or a genius artist! 😉 It is fascinating to see someone explode with brilliance and makes me drawn to adore it. This also means he’ll be creative in coming up of surprises for our anniversary, ha ha. 😀
  4. He recognises God as the center of our lives and the source of our love. This way, if we get married, we’ll be raising our children in the same track. With this, I hope he’s respectful, kind, generous, and can emphatise.
  5. Must be neat, takes a bath and changes his clothes everyday. I am not looking for queer although they looked amazingly handsome and proper. It’s nice to have someone who can dress up or down, smiles truly, and smells wonderful. It would not be too much to ask that he’s organise with his stuffs too.

There you go. My boo list. 🙂

[1: 1,599 of 10,000] Re-organising Schedules To Get Results

In List on September 24, 2015 at 11:18 AM

Organise

Having a new amazing work and trying to infiltrate in contributing to its success mean it is taking most of my energy and waking time; but I don’t like to abandon an essential part of me, you know that special someone that writes. I intend to write books for the rest of my life and at least keeping a post a day in this blog too.

Yesterday, I was really overwhelmed on how to make everything work out, I could feel my brain raising, jumping, and swirling all over my head that couldn’t calm down. I was too excited to make a plan, I feel like a wreck, rattling! Finally, after regaining my inner sanctuary, I came up with a grand plan on what do I expect to produce daily, every weekend, monthly, and in a year. It was important to show what am I trying to accomplish and that’s why it made it on the grand schedule.

It’s not perfect but I will make adjustments as I move along. I have to write my plans infront of my personal organiser if I want to make sure nothing in my life get missed, I’m so glad for having Wednesday to Saturday as a holiday here in UAE to have ample time to truly re-organise.

Daily Expectations

  1. Pray – I need my inner sactuary blessed so I could perform with grace and anointment.
  2. Exercise – Even if it’s stretching but I really have to be serious about this if I want to keep a good energy for everything that I want to do.
  3. Eat Healthy – Slow down on the preservatives, sugar, too salty, and go-to chicken. Go fresh as much as possible and variety too.
  4. Drink Water – I do need to write this down because I often avoid drinking proper amount of water. I pee a lot after drinking especially that the air-conditioning here in Dubai is very cool, it may be hot outside but the indoors are always well ventilated, too cool too often but I’ll have that than sweating.
  5. Sleep – I wake up early, I try to be up at 5AM to do my own routine, pray, get breakfast, write blog, and then enough time to blow dry my hair (even if it didn’t seem to be working) and put on some make-up.
  6. Daily Blog – This one has a special place, I try to finish it in the morning otherwise, start in the morning and finish it as soon as I get home. This is important so I have proper practise writing.
  7. 10 Ideas – Inspired by James & Claudia Altucher to exercise my mind.

Fridays is honouring my personal talents

  1. First Friday – Make an article for my other blog that isn’t anonymous. It is a lot more work for me to write it because I have to be careful on what I write. I felt like being vulnerable here is 1,000 times being magnified there because anyone could just easily attack me and being human I do get hurt.
  2. Second Friday – Create a LinkedIn Article on business. I still don’t know if it is a good thing that I do this knowing that I am not yet an expert but I do like to learn and be more confident on my writing in the professional arena.
  3. Third Friday – Devote on our upcoming family business in partnership with my two sisters.
  4. Fourth Friday – My favourite and it is devoting it for my book.
  5. After all the dedicated priorities on top, Friday is also a good day to go out shopping, unwind, and just be merry outside of work and home if something is scheduled.

Saturdays

  1. Home chores, paying bills, cooking a feast, and sort personal emails.
  2. Learn through reading books, listening to podcast, and watching videos.
  3. Call my sissy in Australia to catch up.

Monthly Accomplishments and Pleasures

  1. Get a body massage.
  2. Try a new restaurant.
  3. Have a new experience.
  4. Invest.
  5. Finish a book.

Yearly Plan

  1. Travel abroad.
  2. Have a life project that helps other people.
  3. Publish a book.
