Versatile Blogger Award

versatile-blogger-award

 I am beyond blessed and honored to be nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by Millie and Sheldon. They are always here to give me love and continuous support. Their kindness has got me tore up sometimes (sorry for being so emotional 😛 ). Millie is a talented author who has written two amazing books already and now working on her book 3. Her writing skills always amaze me and I totally appreciate how creative she is when it comes to writing. Sheldon is a brilliant artist who got accepted into a show called “The Black Tie” which showcases B&W pieces in Pennsylvania on 2nd February (it’s today according to HK time).  He has written a lot of poems on his blog also. Massive thanks to both of you my dear friends! 🙂

So here are the Versatile Bloggers Award rules:

  1. Show the award on your blog.
  2. Thank the person who nominated you.
  3. Share seven facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate 15 blogs.
  5. Link your nominee’s blogs & let them know. You can click on each one mentioned to get to their blogs.

Here are seven facts about myself (hope you don’t find some of them too weird for you :P) :

1. I love colorful highlighters. The way I used highlighters actually scared my classmates away. People usually highlight what is important, but I like to highlight almost every single paragraph using different colored highlighters 😀 . Those bright colorful colors cheer me up and make my textbooks less boring. 😛

2. My entire family and even some of my relatives don’t call my name or nickname. They call me “younger sister” for some reason whether they are older or younger than me.

3. You all know my English name “Khloe”, but my previous English was “Candy” actually. I was asked to have an English name by my English teacher when I was 7 years old. I had no idea which English name I should select since my parents didn’t give me one. All of the sudden, I thought “Candy” would suit me the best because I loved to have candies a lot (you know kids lol :P). Slowly and slowly, this kid has all grown up and her love for candies has faded away. Also, I got really sick when there were always few Candy(s) sitting in the class…English class, Business class, yoga class, etc…We Candy(s) seriously had no idea which Candy(s) the teacher was calling. It was the time when I started thinking to change my name. I basically wanted to have a name with great meanings. Then, I selected “Khloe” instead of all the fancy names I’ve seen.

4. I hate Math. I don’t usually like to use the word “hate” as it sounds pretty negative to me. However, Math is something which drives me nuts and there is no better word than “hate” can describe how much I hate it. I try to avoid Math as much as I can . Remember back when I had to study Finance and Accounting as part of my Business degree course and those days were a complete nightmare to me. It was like fighting with enemies each time I studied both of these subjects. Right after I finished the degree, I swore to myself not to choose anything related to Math when it comes to studying. I kept that promise well and I gave up on studying Master of Marketing (probably the course I was most passionate about) because I knew I would have to study Accounting as part of the course. Eventually, I chose to study Master of Business in Management instead. Honestly, I never thought I would love it that much and it could be that interesting. It turned out to be  a big surprise to me! 😀

5. I do crave for having a sandwich as my lunch sometimes, but I try to avoid it because it doesn’t really fill me up :P. When I was studying, I loved to have subway from time to time. I usually ordered a 6-inch toasted tuna sub with regular cheese, but always ended up ordering another 6-inch sub for myself because I felt like I had nothing in my stomach right after having one 6-inch sub only 😀 .

6. I love tattoos, but I don’t have any tattoos on myself as I change my mind a lot. I actually love seeing people with tattoos, especially those wording tattoos with great meanings behind and beautiful fonts. I see this type of tattoos as a piece of art with a great story behind it and I find them very fascinating. However, I don’t fancy seeing people with a lot of tattoos on…few tattoos are acceptable to me. 🙂

7. I love to touch preggo belly. I know it might sound very weird, but I seriously love to do it. I find it very magical to touch preggo belly because I feel the love between the mother and the baby.

Once again, I’m going to break the rule not to nominate anyone. Please feel free to take the award all my versatile blogger friends. Love you always ❤

Take care,

The Journey of Self-Discovery – part 3

A faburlifekhloe

Hi everyone! Hope you all are doing well! 🙂 Here I am again posting another artwork which continues “The Journey of Self-Discovery – part 2”. Speaking of “The Journey of Self-Discovery”, I got a reader asking me why the series of “The Journey of Self-Discovery” seem so sad. Honestly, I wasn’t trying to make you all sad or anything. I was just expressing my complicated feelings during my journey of self-discovery. It can be miserable and difficult at times, but I still remain positive.

“The Journey of Self-Discovery – part 3” has clearly shown how positive I am about my future. It also explains the reason why I mentioned that I still remain positive even though part 1 and 2 seemed a bit sad overall. Yes – it wasn’t easy for me to deal with the pressures I received from my family and relatives, especially I’m just in the progress of proving them what I chose is right. Simultaneously, It really does take time to prove them and they are not that patient to see me proving them. Therefore, those pressures keep shaking the vision I have on my dream from time to time. However, I know I shouldn’t be affected by those pressures. In order to be myself and achieve my dream, I must be strong enough to tackle those pressures and positive enough to make my dream happen. I also need to keep motivating myself to stay true to myself and do what it takes to achieve my dream.

Moving on to the artwork, I’m sure a lot of you can see almost a complete difference in this artwork compared to part 1 and 2. As far as you remember, my friend and I used the color of purplish blue as a main color for part 1 and 2 . The purplish blue color expressed my complicated and miserable feelings created by the struggles and uncertainties I had. However, my friend and I used brighter colors for this artwork to show how positive I am about my future and how happy I am to welcome my future. The brighter green color is to remind myself to constantly refresh my mind with a brand new perspective to see my pressures, struggles and uncertainties. I shouldn’t see them as a pain. Conversely, I should make them as my motivation. The reddish orange color was also being used for the artwork. This color not only shows how happy I am after using a brand new perspective to see my pressures, struggles and uncertainties as a motivation, but also reveals the positivity I have towards my future. Using this color as a dominant color for the artwork shows the level of my happiness has dramatically increased after adopting the brand new perspective to my life. Apart from the color, you will see the people I referred as my family and relatives have become fewer. They have become fewer not because they are not in my life anymore. It’s because I chose not to let them take control of my life. Therefore, you will see me being a focal point in the artwork because I started to take control of my life. Last but not least, there is a very important note I would love to make about this artwork is the bright light on the top right corner. There was a small story behind it actually. I was on a small cruise going under a canal and there was a bright light peeking through the end of the canal. I would describe our lives are like canals. We constantly go through different canals in our lives. When we go under the canal is just like experiencing a darker time of our lives, but it doesn’t mean it is the end of the world. If we keep a positive attitude towards our future, we will always see a bright light (bright future) at the end of the day. It is like we will always see a bright light after going through a canal.

The Journey of Self-Discovery – part 1

E faburlifekhloe

Hi everyone! Hope everyone is doing well. This is my very first post here. I would like to share the artwork my friend and I created. Sharing the artwork today is very meaningful to me because it’s my birthday. I hope this is a new beginning of my life.

Moving on to the artwork, it was created in a digital format and it was a photo before we turn it into an artwork. I might look a bit sad there, but I can tell you all I wasn’t sad at that time. There was just a lot going on in my mind. It was the time when I wasn’t  sure what I was supposed do with my career. I tried my best to do every single task well at work, but nothing seemed to be right. I felt so empty inside. Therefore, I decided to resign from my position and take a break. Even though my boss tried to make me stay, I knew it wasn’t a place where I belong to and hence I still chose to leave the company.

The blurriness of the artwork represents the uncertainty I had. The way I looked at the surroundings shows my concern about my career. The creation of this artwork is to remind myself and all of you that we all have times when we are lost in life. We don’t know what to do with it. We are very concerned about our future. Honestly, It’s ok to have such uncertainties and insecurities. They are a part of our lives. Please don’t let those worries take over you. They just happened for a reason. I believe they will make us stronger and learn more about ourselves.

Stay strong and positive xoxoxoxo Khloe
