The Virgin Way

No comments:

I seriously fell off the radar didn't I. Said I will write more but the complete opposite happened. Reading up blogs purely for work. Brainstorming to write but perhaps with the lack of nicotine and coffee, everything turned hazy and *cough* dull. Or perhaps I'm over thinking and pretend to function like an artist. Uninspired without her creative juice(s).

*blows an imaginary smoke*

What should I do? 

Social media took over my life mostly for work. Its easier to post thoughts over Twitter but with that said my thoughts never made it to 140 letters . I am mostly on Instagram but its private because I like to pretend I am a mysterious and private person. The need to visualize without having to say much or anything at all is easy. The photos are my responsibility but the caption is yours to assume.

We have become so connected in the world through the internet but fail to connect as human. Laughs turned into haha-s or LOL. A real coffee stained toothy smile are replaced with emojis and lastly conversation goes dead with "last seen 2 hours ago." We subconsciously turned and accept ourselves for being rude individuals leaving conversation without a proper thank you or speak to you later politeness. We rely on the blue double check read sign as an acknowledge receipt instead of calling to confirm.

Let's start again. 

Hi, my name is Edrie. Just a writer blogger someone who has been recording her thoughts in words and photos online since 2002-2003. I enjoy taking photographs and uttering profanity in the most creative way. An introvert working in an extrovert industry. A glutton trying to lift weights and squat my gluteus maximus hard. I love my dogs and the sea. I speak too soft and mumble my thoughts in fake accent(s) pretending I only function after coffee.

If you are still here, drop a comment. If you are also stalking me, then you do you. Go mysterious bat-shit on me and don't tell me you're reading this. It makes my life easier knowing no one reads my inane ramblings.

Lastly, I am only responsible for what I write and not for what you understand.

A never too late post.

No comments:
A year ago I told myself to write more. Its good for the soul. That however, went ashtray and I had less than 10 post in 2014.

Writing is a resolution that can and should be "recycled". Here's to 2015 and again, from Neil Gaiman.

Happy New Year.

Be kind to yourself in the year ahead. 

Remember to forgive yourself, and to forgive others. It's too easy to be outraged these days, so much harder to change things, to reach out, to understand.

Try to make your time matter: minutes and hours and days and weeks can blow away like dead leaves, with nothing to show but time you spent not quite ever doing things, or time you spent waiting to begin.

Meet new people and talk to them. Make new things and show them to people who might enjoy them. 

Hug too much. Smile too much. And, when you can, love.

H&M | Kota Kinabalu!

#HMSABAH Opening this 20th November 2014 in 1Borneo Hypermall!

Super excited! H&M is opening its first store in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. I love their basic range and for someone who loves affordable fashion, opening 3 days after my birthday, this is surely a sign.

1Borneo is some 20 minutes drive from where I am in KK. I was hoping it would open across the street in Suria Mall but that would be extra dangerous for a shopaholic (who isn't?!). Never know though. ;)

I browsed H&M website and already got all excited.

The North Face Korea - Awesome marketing

No comments:
I have always love a good ad. Who doesn't? Especially something as clever as this one. Made me want to go out and climb a wall and hopefully win a rock climbing shoes or something as awesome as that.

No this is not a paid post or anything. I love sharing good stuff. :)

Because I love Neil Gaiman

No comments:
deadtastebuds asked: I'm not asking you this because I am assuming you are one, but what do you do if you're a bad person?
"Mm. I’m not sure there really are good or bad people.
I think there are people who do good or bad things. If you are one of the people who does bad things, then, don’t. Don’t do stuff that hurts other people or harms them or makes their life worse. Do good things instead. Volunteer. Be kind. Help. Look after yourself and look after other people — don’t try and beat them. Life’s not a battle you were put here to win: we’re all in this together, trying to help each other to muddle through as best we can. So help, if you can. And if you cannot help, then do no harm.
That’s what I’d do." Neil Gaiman
