Happy Chinese New Year! (It's good to be back!)

I'm just so happy that I finally found time to get back online! I missed blogging and communicating with my readers. Happy New Year to everyone! Kung Hei Fat Choi! May you all welcome the year of the Ox with so much blessings and abundance in life! As for me, I am welcoming the new year with so many changes. New home, new plans, new career (?) and of course a new template for the blog. I'm so excited with the blog's new skin. And what better way to maximize it than having an updated post?! Fresh pieces of writing will be coming out soon. There are a lot of things to share and rave about. I'll post them in the coming days! Thank you for being so patient in staying tuned. Cheers!
