I don’t believe in being a full-time blogger,
i mean, what is that anyway?
Sure, blogging takes up some time,
especially when i have to edit a mountain of travel pix,
but i’m getting to a phase where i sometimes don’t KNOW what to blog about.
And i don’t want blogging to be like work.
Cos that would take all my fun away.
Been up to a few things here and there…
Meetings, pitches, research, and… cleaning my room.
My wardrobe is a spilling mess and much organisation is being sorted out.
Also, my father is adamant about moving my bed to another position in my room.
Something to do with its occupant being able to have a lasting relationship.

I started contributing to the blog section in a beauty and style website called The Style Glossy.
Their office is in NYC and they’ve sourced contributors (a few ex fashion editors) from South East Asia.
You can view the blogposts *here*

The company Chelle, Jac and i started up early this year has been really quiet since our fashion show + event for Nike Sportswear.
We were working on another project that didn’t quite turn out the way we expected,
and have since then decided to just work with each other so that it WILL WORK OUT.
We’re ready to launch something new next month,
so start saving your money haha.

Every 2 minutes, a woman dies of cervical cancer
In Asia Pacific,

As one of the ambassadors for Power Over Cervical Cancer,

If you’re a blogger and would like to attend, do drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and i’ll ask the PR people whether there’s any more space.
If you’re not a blogger or can’t attend, do share your stories to increase knowledge and awareness on the disease.

You never know, a story told/read could save someone’s life.
