Beezee Marc in 2015

So, is 2015 a whole lot brighter? Better? Merrier? I think it is! Maybe less on the brighter side as i do recall many days of rain and pollution. I do want to add the word "Busier" to conclude 2015. Venturing into a new company and trying to live up to the interesting culture, made 20 trips to Hangzhou with 78 nights in Holiday Inn Express, taking DragonAir as if it's regular taxi, adding many more strains of white hair above my neck... it's most definitely busier!

I also want to take this opportunity to thank my family, my darling and my best friends, for your high level of patience and understanding, because, i haven't practically been around much at all! Hopefully, my hard work will bring some rewards at the middle of the tunnel.. don't think I can tolerate till the end of the tunnel... and hopefully I will soon have more time and space to catch-up on my personal life.

So for 2016, here's wishing for all the health, happiness and more time with my family, my darling and my best friends!

time for a change... new life, new future!

2014 has been an extraordinary year... some good, some bad... but hey, it's over! It's time to look ahead, change my lifestyle for the better and work towards a new future!

Once again, lots of thanks to my family, my besties, some beasties, everyone and anyone who has crossed my path in 2014. It wouldn't have been the same without each and everyone of you.

2015 and onward will be brighter, better and a whole lot merrier, because that's how I want my life to be from now.

(Relocated back to Beijing China on 16 Sept)

And so I pray... after looking back at 2013...

A look back at 2013, I wondered how my Rimowa managed to survive without a single minor dent (but the 'wrinkles' are almost as obvious as my own now)... I have spent a lot of hours in the skies (and train, thanks to China), zooming from one city to the next. If I get one wrinkle added to my face for one flight sector I completed, you probably won't see much of my face now. I encountered a lot of things, events and people this past year but still missed out on many many more. Looking forward to what 2014 installs and hoping it will allow a chance to patch up a few of the white spots. And so I pray!

2014も頑張れ!

Memoirs of a mileage whore...

Most significant moment?

I did what Ziyi Zhang did in Memoirs of a Geisha.. I ran down the red gateways at Fushimi Inari Shrine at Kyoto..

Alright, i admit it, i strolled, i wasn't in the expected outfit (because i couldn't find one designed by Vera Wang), and the archways turned out more orange than red... but hey, i tried!

it's been a crazy year... thank you all my friends and my family for being crazy with me. Looking forward to a spectacular 2013 ahead!

and i'm still in one piece....

So, 2011 is finally OVER, and seriously, i've been quite an alien to this livejournal thing for just a little too long but you'll understand once you've seen my schedule. But here i am, back again, to jot down clearly where i've been the past year.. energizing in and out of cities as if the time spent on the planes will not make me age (i'm black-belt in the art of 'utter self-denial')... but oh, what a year!

first, work has conveniently taken most of my time in 2011 prisoner. Spent most of my work time working, non-work time talking about work. And of course, having "interesting new people" in the office kind of helped, with all the stupidity and politics, gave me many opportunities to polish my opera skills.

life in 2011 (in general) has been quite non-bubbly otherwise, not a lot of champagne popping moments, no love interest, probably because my heart is not with Beijing. Did not get a chance to visit my favorite country, Japan (Gomennasai!), so feeling a little deprived. But at least i did have a good holiday in Italy and became the devil who bought Prada, and Bottega, and D&G, and Gucci, and... urgh!

so, here's to a better 2012.. for my friends, for my family and for myself, with good health and lots of good luck! Oh, and a trip to Japan, might as well wish it!

very Sex and the City...

the reasons for Expectations...

when i'm all alone in the states...
when conversations are few...
when words are spoken too often and actions are too much...
when i'm sending too many messages...
when i wake up religiously at 6 am every morning just so i'll get the chance to chat...
when i set an alarm everyday at 4 pm just so i can make some wake up calls...
when i'm constantly missing, and feeling as if i'm the only one...
when i try and try...
when i love someone...
all because i love someone...
when i'm the Carrie.


the reasons for Doubts...

when i'm all alone in the states...
when conversations are few...
when words aren't spoken often enough and actions are too little...
when i get reactive responses...
when i have to sleep alone wondering...
when many days passed without receiving a single call...
when i'm constantly missing, and hoping i am not the only one...
when i'm kept waiting and waiting...
when i love someone...
all because i love someone...
when he's the Mister Big.

In the end, they belong to each other? Or so i really hope...

where was i?

tracing my footsteps the past year..
