As I walked away from the airport after saying goodbye to my mom, shes off to Sydney. Everytime, I felt I owe her so much that words cannot explain. I should have pampered her every minute, with everything, with every lipstick........and as young ones we are often too self-absorbed in our own little world that we have overlooked our loved ones.......whether is work, the internet or the shopping.
I find I would shop more frequently when I am alone, is it because we need closure? comfort? or we are just plain empty? I have taken a break from work but I did not do much except started this blog ~ I would still opt to take a break if I had to relive that moment of choice.
It is hard to be back at work after a year, the mind seem lost wondering somewhere, the soul is like deprived of coffee!!! So its time for me to catchup........I always find myself in an uphill situation, whether it is when I first got back to Hong Kong.......or keep switching jobs. Oh well, we would never find the ideal job right? you will just need to adapt, find one point of interest and tackle it head on........
This is probably a note for myself.......and sorry you need to read this ......I hope you are the same as me. But no one is really the same right? Hope our paths crossed at some stage and my little notes are helpful to you!
I had taken the opportunity and bought myself this amazing birthday present, which is lessons at the L'ECOLE Van Cleef & Arpels, at first I would like to take as much courses as possible but I could not afford that much with savings from last few years of work......given the amount of haul I do each month.....(it so make sense). Anywho, I will be back for another course. Whether it is for out reach of knowledge or to meet new people, I really luv how the brand itself plus the l'ecole, their level of passion and craftsmanship .....it is just so amazing that words cannot explain. It would good to have a chance to get a few hours with the craftsmen whom I very much admired.
Unfortunately due to confidentiality I could not take any pictures during the class but here is a glimpse of it.......which should help the curious cats out there! Some thoughts I read within the venue in PMQ - somewhere along the lines of " you got to believe in luck in order to be lucky".....I seriously forgot who quote and if it is the exact quote as I do not have pen/paper ready.....so apologies but it still rings a bell today!
So ultimately, I just want to say, cherish your luv ones, spend time with them, by just being there next to you are bringing them comfort. Stay away from plucking your iphones too much just be there, really there, talk and listen, these are the best moment. Do not miss out!
Oh by the way, I hope you all got safely back home after a long day's of work. I had been stuck in cwb for almost an hr before I could catch a ride home. As you can tell all ppl on the streets are grumpy.....smile to Monday!
