Woohoo Hello Readers! Welcome back to my blog! Times have flies like crazy this year and till today is almost coming to the end of year 2014. At this point, many of us will start thinking and looking back on what we have done since the beginning of the year. Hence as a blogger, I am glad that I am able to record all my beautiful memories in my blog.
I have blogged for FULL 7 years! Over these seven tremendous years, I have seen and experienced different kind of lifestyle events though my senses. This year, is a breakthrough for my website (Hpility SG)! Congratulation, this site had added total of 7 professional editors and together as a team, we have completed the list of 7 lifestyle categories which are Technology, Entertainment, Family, Health & Beauty, Fashion, Food and Travel.
I want to use this moment to thank group of clients, friends and readers for giving me the opportunity to showcase my blog and explore the world this year. Despite of paid or non-paid articles, I do enjoy blogging with my passion! Without further ado, now I am going to flash back what’s the exciting and interesting event I attended for the past 11 months. Let’s sit back and recap the memories!
Woot! To kick off the beginning of the year 2014, I am honor to be the official ambassador for Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2014! Swift from year 2013 to 2014, this is a good opening occasion to start off my New Year celebration and I always have great time covering events around the Marina Bay Singapore.
In January I also went to various places in Singapore for my phootshoot album. I came out with few different themes during my photo-shoot session and one of the themes was known as “Search for best Things in Life”. Living in this world, I believed that we must always chase for the best things in our life. Reason because we only live once and many things might just flash through without noticing that chances are lie on your hand. Likewise, sometimes we felt lost and unconfident in doing things that control our capability. But no matters what we are facing, we must do our best and keep on moving. The world does not determine your life of living but you yourself do.
Time for Family bonding! Thank You Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) for inviting me to their 45th Anniversary at the Singapore Airshow. Together with the parenting bloggers, I enjoyed myself learning and experiencing the skills of RSAF operated in Singapore. It is also a fruitful moment to mingle with the parent bloggers via this event.
Changes of March this year, I shared about why I love blogging and being a blogger. There are many unexplainable reasons why I love blogging because what I love is my passion. During this month, I started to be part of The Influencer Network (TIN) family. I have met many new and young bloggers from this community. This had make me realized that in this blogging industry is just like that building a technology. As a blogger, we must keep on innovate our creativity and ideas. However is always good to learn from the young ones. Why? Why? Because “if you think you are strong, there are always stronger people behind you.” I must agree that sometimes I felt the competitive among the bloggers.
Well, during my free time I met up with friends to chill over a delightful dinner. In this blogging industry it’s all about public-relation and connection. So DON’T BREAK THE CONNECTION! Hahaha
