Since a month ago, I told my mom I want to have a better energy level and vision. So she regularly buys me a bunch of oranges and carrots, which contains a lot of vitamin C and A. I drink them every day in the morning and I notice my energy level boosts up and my scars heal faster. Then one day in previous week, she surprises me with this super drink—The Green Juice!

Life is To Create Yourself, Not To Find

By on Wednesday, February 5, 2014

I often visualize myself coming into a new island, a new society after going out from darkness. Half a year ago I said I want to run for the horizon, I want to run for the sunshine with my renewed mind. Infinite hope is in my heart. My love tank is full. I smile delightfully and greet every person I meet along the road, introduce myself as a newcomer. I spread happiness. I take chance and opportunity whenever they are available. I have new and fun experiences that I have never encountered before. I slowly grow as a person. I tell people my stories. They are impressed. I tell people my struggles. They are inspired. They even put my story in the local bulletin board. I feel like my face radiates sunbeams.

When I say my heart breaks, my heart cries. From the stories I have been told, breast cancer grows and spreads quickly within months, or even weeks. From the very deepest of me, I encourage you, my readers, to educate yourself more about the early detection and going beyond it. Cancer could turn your life upside down, let’s prevent life-full-of-hard-struggle earlier.

In the past two months, I spend a lot of my weeks travelling back and forth. From Singapore, Jogjakarta, and Singapore again. Two weeks, four days, and another ten days. Yes I have enough travelling and playing around. I feel so full of guilt by neglecting my own career as a makeup artist. Like, really guilty.

Secondly, please don’t laugh, I can’t stand the winter cold.
