Birthday At Clifford Pier.

I love Clifford Pier and The Fullerton Bay Hotel. I admit that the food (except the lobster roll) and service is rather…blah…but the ambience kinda makes up for it. I had a wonderful celebration with my family there. These days, family outings revolve around the ‘lil boo, Elliott and we have our dinners really early at 6pm so that he gets home by 8+ for bed. No one is complaining. I/We love this ‘lil boy to bits and I think in my eyes, he’ll do no wrong – even when he’s constantly trying to strangle me by pulling on my necklace. I almost thought my Chanel necklace was going to break. 
It was really nice when the waiters brought out a birthday cake for me and when the pianist broke into a birthday song. Everyone in the restaurant sang along! Do note that if you’re going to do a birthday celebration at this restaurant, they do not allow you to consume cakes from outside. Neither will they refrigerate the cake for you. They make it up by providing you with one. 🙂

Happy Holidays!

Here’s wishing you all happy holidays! I thoroughly enjoyed Christmas this year – the massive present and party planning leading up to the festivities, precious time spent with family and friends, the look of glee (especially amongst the ‘lil ones) when everybody opened their presents, and all that delicious food and over eating. I’ve been nursing a flu and a bad throat since Christmas eve, but ain’t no germs gonna get me down during Christmas! 
The combination of the Christmas spirit and the year coming to a close always leaves me in a reflective mood and I am reminded of what’s important; to have a grateful heart and be thankful for all the wonderful people who surround me. 
I hope all of you had a wonderful and meaningful Christmas. It’s the season of faith, hope and love, so spread love to those who may need it! I’ll be spending the next couple of days mulling over my New Year’s resolutions and setting goals in pursuit of my dreams. More on that to share soon.
On a side note, I think some of you are aware of the current controversy happening right now in the blogosphere. As someone who’s had the experience of working with several artiste management companies over the last decade, I can vouch with all honesty that Gushcloud has been fair, honest, and transparent in our relationship. They conduct their business professionally and sincerely. My experience with them has been nothing but great. Gushcloud believes in open communication and transparency. All these positive traits and more,  is what makes me a proud member of the Gushcloud community.
My heart goes out to the entire team who had to spend this Christmas season managing this ill timed inconvenience. Christmas is the time for love, joy and giving…  kudos to the team for handling all the negativity that’s been hurled at them. 
The Gushcloud team is one of the most hardworking groups of people that I’ve come to work with. The team has always been focused on bettering themselves and fostering an online community based on positivity.  It might be a part of human nature to think the worst of others, in fact, it most probably is easier to think the worst of others, instead of seeing the good that people do. I really do hope that public opinion will not be so swayed so easily by a single, biased source. I find it heartbreaking that such unprovoked hostility is supported by such blind hatred. The blind hatred of people who choose to believe manipulated data, unfounded evidence and unkind words. 
My personal testimony might not mean very much to you, but I believe that the truth will unfold with time. I’d just like to leave you with this quote that I’ve heard some years back;
 “It is easier to destroy than to create, it is easier to sow hate than to foster love. It is easier to judge than it is to seek the truth.”

The boy and I took a much needed holiday to Phuket. It was lovely shutting off the phone, electronic devices, and shutting off work from our minds. We can be such workaholics sometimes. This is one of the rare beach holidays that I’ve taken, and I truly enjoyed the resort and awesome view that surrounded us. 
Twin Palms, Phuket. 
Our room.
Isn’t it great, how huge the bathroom is? 
These ‘words of wisdoms’ are peppered all over the resort. 
More words of wisdom. 
A map, and we’re off!
We rode a bike around Phuket and this is just one of the awesome sights we passed. 
We stopped at the lights and saw this cute pooch balancing on the bike! 
He looked like he was really enjoying himself!
We chilled by the beach when we got tired of riding. This is when I found out that I have a fear of swimming in the sea. I go into panic mode when the waves engulf me. I’ll much rather sit on the beach, and look at the sea. No swimming please, thank you very much.
The view was literally breath-taking. 
Sunset. Too beautiful.

Chilling by the pool.
We met this friendly pitbull at a beach bar.

Too friendly perhaps? Haha.

These gas pit-stops can be found all over Phuket! 

This dog reminded me of the dog, Jack, that I once had.
Dinner time! We were mostly disappointed by the food in Phuket. The holiday would have been even more perfect if we have amazing food to go along. 
And a final parting shot.
