It’s been AGES…

It’s been a helluva long time since I last posted, over a year plus, if I’m not mistaken. But I’m back now! I’ve been on a roller coaster ride and the journey has not ended. I’m not gonna go into all the itsy bitsy details here.

Let’s just say I had an eventful 2011. Besides just slaving away at the desk, I decided to liven up my mundane life with trips here and there. It all started with my first solo trip overseas to South Korea in July. I was given the opportunity to present a paper at an international conference in Seoul. Bless my university for sponsoring my trip there.

Anyhoo, I decided to turn this working trip into a vacation. After all, all work and no play makes Jake, ahem, in this case Jane a dull girl, right? I spend a fantabulous 2 weeks exploring Seoul as well as Jeju Island. Words just can’t describe how beautiful Korea is to me and how much I enjoyed my time there. So, I’ll just let the photos do the talking, k.

        

        

        

        

        

        

        

        

        

        

Korea is so captivating. The culture, the people… I miss it so terribly already. 😦
Well, I went holidaying to a few more places after that. You know, once you had a taste of what’s out there, you’ll just want more of it. I was thirsty for more adventures! So I headed to Bangkok in August, Singapore in October and Hat Yai in December. These places all left me with precious memories.

          

          

          

          

          

So, that was 2011. Hmm, as for 2012, it seems to be passing by too quickly. It’s already almost the middle of the year. So far it’s been nothing but wok, work and more work. So boring!! L I’m really looking forward to the second half of the year coz’ I’ve planned some trips abroad for a little R & R. Can’t wait for July to come! 🙂

I’m sure everyone is familiar with the expression with age comes wisdom. Well, with age comes problems is apt as well, health problems to be more specific. I just celebrated my 30 something birthday this month. Now, I can really feel age catching up with me. I was having this shoulder problem which comes off and on. It’s really difficult for me to get recover from it since the cause of it is spending too much time in front of the computer as well as putting too much strain on my left shoulder. The doctor diagnosed it as a mild case of tennis elbow.  Sigh. I’m a lefty and I tend to use my left arm/ shoulder more than my right. What do you want me to do now? Change my whole regime? I’ve been trying to carry my bag on my right shoulder but it feels damn weird to me. I keep having that imbalanced feeling when I walk. Now, how am I gonna spend less time in front of the screen when most of my work has to be done via the computer?? It’s just so frustrating and ironic! Guess I’ll just have to live with it!

Hmm, since this is my first post in like forever, I better take things easy and not strain my arm/ shoulder too much.

Till my next post, annyeong everyone!
