    Catch Up: Zalora Inspires & A Birthday

    I feel like this coming out of the woodwork thing is going to be happening pretty (un)often this year. How am I still alive I’m virtually drowning in work and obligations. It’s been keeping me busy, which is good I guess? I’m the sort of person who thrives on having stuff to do. At the same time, I also want rest – gone are the days when I’d stay up for forty hours on just adrenaline. This bag of flesh has officially made it past thirty years!

It’s been a tiring few months and it probably doesn’t help that I’m thinking of moving this space onto a new direction for next year. So many things, so little time. Anyway, I’m coming back to writing about my Tokyo trip from March. Ottie and I visited Shinjuku for a shopping errand that didn’t pan out, as we’d arrived too late in the evening. Unfazed, we searched Google Maps…
