The First Post

Two failed attempts at creating a blog and actually keeping it active, I am quite sceptical at starting this one. You see, having a string of abandoned blogs under your belt ain’t something you should be proud of. But don’t get me wrong, the idea of having a weblog document my life events appeals very strongly to me. And I enjoy writing a lot. It’s just that…..well, enjoying writing is one thing, being good and consistent at it is another!

Probably I was being too hard on myself. My frequent excuse was “I have nothing special to write” or rather “If I have nothing special to write, I might as well don’t”. Or some days I was just plain lazy. But how could this be? If writing is really what I enjoy doing, then I wouldn’t have to drag myself to do it, yes? Afterall, a blog should be a medium where you write your thoughts or feelings…to express yourself. Casually. Yes, “casual” is the key. With that,  let’s wish a long life to this blog, where I vow to casually and consistently update with musings, experiences, hobbies, stories and many more.

Here’s to my life. Unscripted.

    Hey Tien

    Good job so far 🙂 Don’t worry, it always seems a little harder at first but you’ll get the hang of it! So yes, casual’s the right word…

    Good luck and I’m looking forward to reading more from you!

    No worries 🙂 Oh and do check out Tami’s blog at http://www.runningwithtweezers.com/

    I love how she styles her shoots and the foods that she makes. I’d do the same if I weren’t living in M’sia!

    Ooohh and another one is http://steamykitchen.com 😛

    I don’t know, I somehow find Malaysian hawker foods are more appealing than home cooked food…. and it could be the picky Ipoh-bred tongue, it’s hard to find anything good in KL 😛

  5. […] That post was a product of frustration and a desperate attempt of getting a blog post published anyway. I am so touched by all your kind comments, encouraging words, tips, suggestions and your sharing of experiences about blogging with me. I realise now that I have been approaching blogging the wrong way. I was trying too hard and being too hard on myself! I forgot that blogging should be light, fun and casual. […]
