HERE WE GO AGAIN


The last day of 2014, time does fly. I am not going to quote or write anything cheesy, all I need to say is that 2014, with all the ups and downs, has truly been wonderful for me. I look forward to 2015. Happy New Year everyone!


BUSY BEE

You might have heard enough that in my line of work, working full time means literally full time, all day all week. We don’t get off work at 5 PM and when we leave the office we often bring the work home. Working weekends and standing by on call are a part of the job. Ask your lawyer friends, this is what all of us do. I knew what I signed up for when I applied to law firms after my graduation.  Although rants and complaints may come out my mouth at times, I am actually happy to be going down this road.

Why? Because I know this is what I want to do with my life. Because the fact that there is a legal aspect to everything excites me. Because all the reading and more reading enrich my brain. Because every step of how we do what we do offers me so much to learn and that thrills me.

Truth be told, juggling both lawyering work and blogging work is not easy. But I gotta admit, the existence of smart gadget has been very helpful in my attuning to this lifestyle. It helps me get things done when I am not in a place where I best be to get them done. I am not persnickety about my gadget so long as its spec and features suit my needs and its design matches my taste.




My latest gadget crush is SamsungGalaxy Tab S. I covet its simple and slim design and adore how it rests stylishly in my hand when I hold it. Not to mention the sophisticated operating system and user-friendly features that really come in handy for anywhere anytime usage. I recommend Samsung Galaxy Tab S for my peers. Experience how SamsungGalaxy Tab S makes your life easier, then you can take pride in being busy and stylish at the same time.





BATIK



We wear Batik on Friday every week. It isn't mandatory at my workplace but I take pride in wearing Batik on my own initiative. I also like seeing most business people strolling around the business district in various pattern and color of Batik clothing. What's the best Batik outfit have you ever pulled out?

Been doing some reflections lately and some are starting to anchor me down. But we had a prayer and sharing session for a friend of mine who just so recently passed away, and her mother in her speech reminded me of some life values that I have lived by since teenager but recently kind of ignored. Thanks for being such a blessing, Ajie and family :)




WAKE UP CALL


Here's a few shots of my outfit yesterday. Frankly I blanked on what to say about it, because my mind is currently overwhelmed by the series of events that occurred today that I am going to talk about instead to let off steam.

Today is a more of a roller-coaster than the past six months have been. Today we celebrated my boyfriend's mom's birthday. With a lovely lunch at a lovely place and a lovely quality time with both of our families, both my stomach and heart were full. Also today, we buried one of my dearest friends. He was such a friendly and genuine person, never had I seen him without a big smile on his face. He was humble, bright, loving, and inspiring. His suddenly passing away marked a huge scar in our hearts, but his being strengthened us and that's how incredibly inspirational he was. So long Ajie, we'll see you on the other side.
