Closed a chapter, time to write a new one

Finally gotten the time to really blog about life. HAHAHAHA. The reason behind my missing act at the beginning of the year, I was having internship and I had really bad time management skill. I couldn't juggle myself between both work and blogging consistently that time. Workload was pretty heavy with all the weekly reports that I had to hand in, the researches I had to do, media calls that I had to make. It was tough but I definitely learnt a lot during those three months.

Finally, I've gotten my letter of completion from college last two weeks ago and I can consider myself as fresh grad with Diploma in Mass Communications.


So...



What's next? What am I going to do with my life? What was I doing during these few months? Time to answer these question. :D




1. What do you plan to do after graduating? Pursue degree or work?
After rounds and rounds of deep thinking, I've decided to find a full time job to pay for my living expenses. In short, I need a job to survive.



Why not pursing a degree first? Degree courses nowadays aren't cheap, I couldn't really afford to pay both fees and living expenses as well as assignment materials at the same time. Yes, although my dad is the one who pays for my education fees but I still have a younger brother who is now a college student as well. He will be needing a car soon. From there, my dad has to fork out more money for him. In order to lessen his burden, I decided to work so that he doesn't have to worry too much on his daughter.  (However, I have not send out my resume because I haven't design it) HAHAHAHAHA


2. When are you going to start working?
I'm giving myself until probably July / August. That's because I would like to spend more quality time with my family as well as friends whom coming back from overseas. Also, there are couple more important tasks to be done before pushing myself to the real working world such as.....pulling the horrible (not-so) wisdom tooth and probably a short trip to Singapore. We'll see how it goes.


3. What have I been up to these two months? 
Eat, Faceook, sleep. Repeat. HAHAHAH. Sort of.

After accomplishing internship, I still do some freelance job such as videos editing and articles writing to pay up my bills, petrol and living expenses. Plus, it was a good opportunity to build my portfolio as well. Oh! I drink a lot of coffee too! (Yeah, main highlight. Hehehe)




Over the weekend, I volunteer at Ohana @ Sunsuria because taking photos of these fur kids meant a lot to me. Their smile, their silliness, their true-self usually reflect on the photos and simple things like these just make me smile. :)





During my free time, I usually design posters for the doggies who are up for adoption. At first, it was purely for fun so I made this poster for a pup named Kat. His yawning picture reminds everyone of Godzilla so I just design a "movie" poster just for fun. Who knew, the poster caught the attention of the public.



After that, I realized that I could use the skills that I know to help these fur kids. Create different kind of adoption posters for them, help them to find a forever loving home. :)




When you see them being adopted to a loving family, the smile on your face will just stay and you'll feel rainbows all over in your stomach. Hehe. 


4. What does your parent think of your decision? Are you they okay with you rotting at home?
This is probably the 2nd popular question after 'What is your next plan?'. My mom okay with my decision and she also thinks that I should take a break before working. However, my dad isn't really happy with my decision. Well, who likes their daughter to rot at home doing nothing. Very often I got lecture from him that I should faster go find a job or else I should just go for degree. It's annoying but parents, they usually lecture for our own good. Mom & Dad, I will work hard! Trust your daughter okay! :D


Okay, that's it I suppose. Thousand apologise for not updating this blog so frequent as I used to be. It wasn't so easy to handle a full time job and blogging at the same time but now I've learn, definitely gonna keep blogging! Shall cross fingers for the best! Hehe. :D

Cosan Coffee, Solaris Mont Kiara

I really love coffee, friends around me know it's pretty impossible for me to say no when it comes to coffee. When Cosans Coffee invited me to their new opening at Solaris Mont Kiara, I was real excited! Congratulations Cosans!



Not only I get to visit the new outlet but also I get to have my first try on the coffee at Cosans. I ordered ice latte and I really enjoyed it because the portion of milk was just right, wasn't too sweet and definitely right choice for latte lovers. Double enjoyed it because the air condition was pretty warm that night so iced latte was just perfect!  


Supermodel Amber Chia made an appearance during the night too!


Besides coffee, Cosans also serve fresh & juicy sandwiches as well as yummy & delicious cakes. The baristas there are really helpful and friendly. You'll be welcome with really cheerful greets as you enter the cafe. Also, you can always ask for their assistance and recommendation if you're lost in your orders.




Had a wonderful night with coffee. Looking forward to my next visit! Cosans Coffee, congratulations again on your new opening! :D

SOMERSBY PEAR CIDER MAKES ITS DEBUT IN MALAYSIA

Carlsberg Malaysia has introduced a brand new flavour to the most famous cider in town which is the Somersby Pear Cider! In conjunction with the launch, Carlsberg Malaysia has also introduced its magically-themed ‘Somersby Ciderland’ as a consumer engagement platform. 


Somersby Pear Cider is a refreshing and crisp cider made from fermented real pear juice which means it's free from artificial sweeteners and flavouring with 4.5% in alcohol content. 


Somersby Apple Cider has become tremendously popular in Malaysia since the launch in June 2012. Now, the Pear Cider imported from Sweden will also be delivering the refreshing twist to a beer-alternative for both men and women who are sociable and outgoing as well as for those love taking life’s challenges with a hint of adventure!


Somersby Ciderland was being described as ‘a mysterious land of endless wonders where nothing is what it seems', having an atmosphere that is sophisticated yet unpredictable. During the event, everyone was treated to a series of interesting games, relaxing entertainment scores, and plenty of talented street performances such as street magician Mahdi Moudini, jugglers and mimes. Other famous characters that turned up unexpectedly at Somersby Ciderland included the Spartans and Lara Croft, adding even more zest to the party! 

Somersby Ciderland will be transported across different locations in Malaysia every month to allow cider fans a chance to experience the unexpected. Members of the public who are interested to be a part of the exclusive Somersby Ciderland experience, remember to stay tuned to Somersby’s Facebook page on the way to gain their citizenship to Somersby Ciderland.


My personal opinion on Pear Cider is that you must ensure that it's really really really cold enough for that unexpected punch with an exciting, thirst quenching experience. For me, I still prefer Apple Cider. 


For those who are interested to try out the new cider, fred not as the Somersby Pear Cider is available in 330ml bottles at selected bars and restaurants, as well as in packs of four at all major hypermarkets and supermarkets nationwide.
