It Has Been A While...

...Great! A lot of things had happened. I just had the sudden urge to visit this old blog. I do not even know what had happened to Blogger. The platform seems so different compared to the last time I published something. 

It is year 2015. This blog came up in 2003. As much as I love to write back then, life got in the way. So much that I have to neglect my online outlet to deal with the real side of human existence. Some years ago, I had the dilemma of inactivating this blog for good. But a wise soul breathed some words of wisdom. She said just let it be; let it float to oblivion. That someday, I will miss the fun part of writing, of fencing words and hearing the chipping of keys...of being back to journaling online.

So why am I here? I do not even know what the reason is. All I know is I am darn bored. Somehow, in my mind, my blog figured in my consciousness. The desire came about to see how it appeared online. I could not even remember the last time I tweaked it.

For now, I will not mess with whatever would make this blog "pretty." I really do not care. All I want is to revive the hobby of writing my mind, learning how to play with words. 

I hope to be back.

Keeping Touch With My First Loves

I love to read books. My preferences are crime fictions, mystery/suspense, thrillers (legal, medical and cozy mysteries), historical fictions and nonfictions.

I love coffee. Drinking coffee, that is. Generally, I prefer black with sugar but no cream, please. But I also love frappuccinos! And I collect mugs from Starbucks!

I love bags. A bag-aholic? Perhaps. I adore signature bags but I am not the type to hoard every branded bag there is (I am only lusting for 1 LV bag at the moment). I want a decent, functional bag where I can put all my stuff. I do not like the small ones and neither those over-sized bags. Medium? Probably.

I love postcards. Collecting them by themes (that I prefer) encourages me to learn more about other countries. I collect UNESCO WHS, pictorial map cards (I am navigationally-challenged, that's why), popular tourist spots, art-related, OWLs (as in the night bird)...So if you want to mail me a postcard, feel free to contact me for my mailing address.

And if you're going to ask me if I love to travel, I think any person you ask will say yes. And I do like to travel. I have visited Japan (Kyoto is heaven), Singapore (thrice, I think), Hongkong, United Arab Emirates (Dubai and Abu Dhabi) and France. Currently, I am based in Qatar (temporarily). Aside from the usual wandering around, it's the shopping for souvenirs...and postcards and snow globes that pumps me up! And now, I am waiting for the time "to pin" Italy, Spain, Turkey and Egypt on my mental map.

I am happily married to my husband and we have a little boy to complete the family.
