KinkyBlueFairy is Officially 6 Years Old.

Comments (50) Birthdays, Blogs

It just hit me that exactly SIX YEARS AGO, i wrote my first blogpost HAHA!

+ + + + +

KBF first blogpost

+ + + + +

Just spent some time reading through my archives,
and i realise how much i love this blog.

It has all my memories of me going through college,
parties and raves (now dragging me out to a club is a bit hard :p),
incessant drinking (hmm that hasn't stopped),
friends i used to be close to, friends that i'm still close to,
boyfriends and all the stupid funny things we'd do with each other,
increase in holidays as i slowly managed to earn more moneyΒ   :xlaughing: ,
and other pinnacle moments in my life (heartbreak, my dog Steven passing away),
as well as working my way up from 2004:
photographer > writer > freelancer > managing editor > blogger (!)

Someone asked me (in all seriousness) how much it would cost to buy my blog a few nights ago.
At first i was taken aback cos this is unheard of in Malaysia.
And the past few days i've been thinking RM300,000?
RM1 million?
RM1.2 million?

How can one put a value on memories?
I can't.

I don't reckon these people are as emotional about it as i am.
Because it's my life.
My emotions, my photographs,
all spilled out on a little space on the www,
validating my existence in some way.

The blog is me (but i am not the blog).
And i feel if i sold it,
i'm selling a bit of my soul away.

Does that make sense?
Well it does to me anyway!

Anyway as always, i went off tangent.

Happy 6th Anniversary KinkyBlueFairy (gawd i wish i could change your name so people would stop asking what it means!)
Thanks for being an outlet for me to bla bla bla
Watch myself grow
Record all my memories
And make a living out of doing something that was unheard of when i first started you.

To all my (silent) readers,
man, i know you're there cos Google Analytics doesn't lie to me,
but you sure are quiet!

Thanks for reading and following me on this blogΒ   :xheart2:

Maybe, for all the stuff i've shared with you here,
you could do one thing for me?

Tell me your most memorable post on KBFΒ   :xhappy:

    I guess my most memorable post is one where you talked about one guy you were dating. It was ages ago and trying to think exactly what it said is a bit hard la.

    OH OH! Its about how someone you had connection with so strong that you don’t even bother playing relationship games no more.

    By the power of Google; I found it! Heh!

  2. axiao says:

    Happy 6th anniversary!!

    The most memorable one for me I guess is when you went bald for charity. That’s so much courage in it. Can’t think of anymore cos I just started read your blog for like 2 years ago I think, when you were redhead?

    and yea, I absolutely love ur dailydress segment…:)

  3. quiet reader speaks up says:

    my favorite posts would be your posts on fashion. love the photos!

  4. Desmond says:

    first got me hooked in your post to bali with rudi… so much fun… so i live vicariously thru u… hope u dun mind

  5. MeMeR says:

    Best thing is to see you becoming a better person in every single way every day,all the best!!

  6. Suraya says:

    Happy birthday KBF! been following for 3 years i think. Most memorable post would be the one you went all out shaving your head for charity.
    And i love all your event posts. I’m not a clubbing/nightlife person, by reading through your posts I learn what event/ what new club/ great DJ etc… sort of like my source.

    Keep on writing πŸ™‚

    *1st time comment* wheeee

  7. ShaolinTiger says:

    Happy 6th, keep on blogging Joyce.

  8. Eve says:

    i love you bali/travel post..

  9. One of your 'Silent Readers' says:

    Happy 6th Bday KBF!! geeezz.. for some reason, an image of a kid with a huge grin on her face, with a flamboyant party hat on her face, holding multi-colored balloons on her hands, popped into my mind. πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for providing such enlightening reads about your progress (and success obviously) in areas of your life, Joyce. Inspiring at the same time.

    Much love

    (am actually contemplating on whether to put my name here, in case you don’t remember who i am) =S

    Happy 6th year babe!!!

    This blog really brings loads of joyful memories! Especially those tipsy ones that we almost dont remember. Lisa and i used to just refer back to your blog for pics and details!

    My fav?
    “Fairies Have Long Weekends Too!”

  11. Selwyn says:

    The one that you went bald!! Congrats.. Please keep feeding us with excitement.. Cheers

  12. carly says:

    Your blog offers so much life! Have been reading for years now and always loved your fashion posts and snippets of conversations.

    But the one that struck a chord, was “Meant to Be” =)

    One thing i admire the most is you’ve always kept it real.
    Hope you never lose that!


  13. beep says:

    i liked the ones that features my little pony πŸ™‚

  14. Em says:

    Love the travel posts especially the ones from bali.. The idea of personalising the place with deco’s and toys.. is just amazing.

    Also love your fashion sense and the good deeds u do. =)

    Keep it up and happy ‘anniversary’!

  15. Wei says:

    I love how you’re honest and have no problem poking fun at yourself. And it’s awesome to read about your travels =D

    silent reader since 2006

  16. cassie says:

    I’ve been following your blog for goodness knows how long. hehe my memory fails me. Anyway, i dont think i have a favourite post but i love how daring you are. The way you dress, the way you live. its inspiring.

    thank you πŸ™‚

  17. tina says:

    happy 6th anniversary.. i have a daughter around your age and i love reading your blog cos it helps me to keep in touch with things that goes on in your generation .. be it clubbing, shopping, relationship matters.. makes it easier for me to understand and communicate with my kids…also keeps me young at heart..:)

  18. Random schmandom. says:

    Mine is not so much about a particular post, but more about how the owner of this blog did a favour for me a long time ago. She helped me sort out a last minute company party by recommending me to her then favourite place, Somo, and one of its owners, which both were awesome thanks to her rave reviews.

    Yeah, it probably seemed small to her, but for me, it possibly shaped my career path in that company.

    And the coolest part of it all was that she doesn’t even know me.

    Thanks KBF.

  19. Nat says:

    Started reading KKB since 2004. Loved your older posts where you didn’t give two hoots about whatever you blogged. Who can forget those wonderfully and colourfully editted photos? I guess with your career growing etc you can’t really blog THAT freely anymore. But guess what? That still didn’t stop me from coming back. πŸ™‚

  20. Eudora says:

    Happy 6th KBF! πŸ™‚

    Honestly, it’s hard to say which post I like the most but I would say that the most memorable post will be all the Spain and other places posts. I love the pictures that u took, somehow always make me feel happy especially the ones with colourful things! And I truly admire the way you write each and every blog post.

    And thanks to this blog, I get to know TongueinChic & hooked to it up to this day & I never expected to get to meet the person behind this blog as well.

    Keep on blogging good stuff Joyce!

    Your frequent commenter these days & no longer a silent reader. Heehe πŸ˜€

  21. Tif says:

    ..breaking the silence here

    Happy 6th to KBF!

    My most memorable post was the first post I’ve read at KBF. I was googling jigsaw puzzles as a gift for my best bud when I landed on your page. You were writing about your friendship with Ash. Through the yrs and courses of life you guys remained tight.. and I remembered you were saying something in the line of, “even though we are different, yet lay side by side the puzzle just fits” and that struck a cord with me. It’s so deep, just golden haha.

    Best luck in your endeavors and keep on blogging it Joyce =)

  44. kreazi says:

    it was there, then the next day it disappeared (-__-“) anyways, i was just saying that I’m one of the silent readers as well, been reading your blog since 2007 and i went all the way back to your very first post in xanga πŸ™‚ and it’s like “watching” you grow up, going thru different phases in life, hanging out with different people, and yes, boyfriends too πŸ˜›

    i cant really pick one memorable post, coz i really enjoyed reading all your posts… but perhaps the one on your dog touched me deeply coz i m a dog lover too!

  45. Sasha says:

    YESSSSSSSS, Boss-for-a-day! Yayyy!! Teehee.. are you going to be managing TiC booth again during this year’s Urbanscapes? If you are, can I work under you again? So much fun =D

  47. Fox says:

    I’m one of the dead silent readers but I’ve been following your blog ever since your friend Nana from TOA introduced me to you! I was a junior in TOA back then. I read your blog because I was curious but I ended up getting hooked!
    I’ve always admired your outgoing bubbly self and your honesty in your blog posts.
    The posts that are always most memorable to me is about your interactions with your family…you guys have such a wonderful relationship.
    Keep on blogging, I’ll always keep on reading~

  48. JoyceTheFairy says:

    kreazi: weird… never knew about this! you guys gt tell me if something is fking up on the blog k πŸ˜‰ can’t believe you’ve been following thru everything for so long. would be quite freaky cos you know so much! lol

    sholee: good girl πŸ˜‰
