Weekend in the city
Diary

Blew off a bit of steam this weekend after we launched a website for work – Started off at the bar at the client’s offices, then off we went to the Lord Raglan in Alexandria. Had some burgers, which were decent but not as good as the ones we had last week at the Kingston…

Vivid Sydney
Diary

I didn’t plan anything for the long weekend because I wanted to reset a little after the last couple of weeks. After 2 days of downtime at home I was getting cabin fever and really bad FOMO. A desperate need to be out with other humans brought me to a daytime karaoke event on Meetup.…

Running with the wolves
Diary

The past month as been about… getting back into feeling human again. What makes me feel good (yoga, keeping busy, making plans with new friends) and knowing what to avoid (not sleeping enough, not eating right, too much caffeine or alcohol). I ran for the first time in a while today, and it’s no surprise,…

Broken connectedness
Diary

I went on a walk this Anzac day with a friend and quite a random group of humans. In that group I had a good chat with one of the guys who organised the walk. After some stimulating conversation about technology, what I do for work, what he does for work, we eventually got to…

Brisbane for Christmas
Diary

Flew to Brisbane for the holidays to spend time with the boyfriend’s family, managed to see a good amount of wildlife considering I was only mobile within a 10km radius the whole time I was there. Checked off from my Aussie wildlife list are as follows: An Australian bushturkey (as pictured above) A kangaroo (it…

I moved to Australia
Diary

The last couple of months have been a whirlwind, and now I find myself living and working in Australia. I haven’t quite formed an opinion of how I feel about this, as my headspace just doesn’t have the capacity to do so. A lot of my time is spent checking off to do lists to…

The psoriasis journey
Diary

I’ve been dealing with psoriasis for over 4 years now… I just wanted to report a good day just so I can remember the hopeful feeling that my itchy and red patches of skin may return to normal one day. My first patch appeared on my scalp near my forehead, and when I went to…

Keswick, Lake District
Travel

On our way back to London after hiking Snowdon in Wales, we passed by the Lake District. It was as quaint and as beautiful as one would imagine from English novels. Everyday started off with a full English breakfast from our B&B. These are probably the only breakfast sausages I would willingly eat again –…

Speakeasy in Chinatown
Diary

Just happened to be in Chinatown looking for a drink when we remembered that there was a speakeasy nearby. I didn’t know what a speakeasy was until just last week, way to forget all the cool things from history class. The single-door entrance looked completely nondescript between a shop dedicated to imported Asian snacks, and…

Florals for spring
Diary

I don’t know if I’m ready for a 30-day photo challenge with the boyfriend. He suggested that we do it now that he finally has a camera again. Took some photos of english garden flowers on our walk over to Richmond Park this evening. Not thrilled with the photos I had (florals? for spring? groundbreaking.)…
