June 2016 | Happiness Highlights

June was a month filled with highs and lows, but writing my Happiness Highlights allowed me to focus on the positive and appreciate each passing day, whatever the case may be. #1: Indulging in my favourite treat, a Chinese takeaway (char siu fried rice). #2: Family coming together to support one another following a bereavement. #3: Despite some doubts, not […]

May 2016 | Happiness Highlights

You might have been wondering whether I’d jumped into a DeLorean time machine recently, since that would provide a reasonable explanation for 1) My absence, and, 2) Writing about May in July.

Lifestyle | #TBT: Forgotten Hobbies & Unfinished Projects
