Hello, 2015!

So I’ve started blogging again! And about time too.

Starting the year with a few of my favourite things: my MacBook Pro, with which most of my work will be done this year alongside my very trusty iPhone and iPad; Porter magazine or an equally good, stimulating read, perfect when paired with a hot beverage; my planner, which will be accompanying me until the new one I ordered arrives (note: champagne gold); gold hoops that have been to many places and seen many things since I’ve a tendency to wear them practically everywhere – they’re my staple go-to accessory; a vanilla-scented candle for delicious, calming mornings (Diptyque shall have to wait); and my newest obsession: lipsticks.

I actually can’t believe how much I’ve missed writing. I get inspired – and very much so at that – by so many varied pieces of writing every day whenever I read, which happens to be a lot of the time, but it never dawned upon me that I’d miss it this much. And it feels so good to be at it again, so fingers crossed this keeps up!

With that said, here are a few things I’m looking forward to this year:

Launch a project I’ve been working on.
I’m currently in the midst of working on what I’d deem as the biggest and boldest thing I’ve ever done in my life thus far and am preparing to officially launch it early this year. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a very long time now, and it hasn’t felt like the right time until now. I’m not going to say much about it as of yet, but you’ll definitely be hearing about it very soon as the year progresses. Absolutely excited about this and can’t wait to see it through.

Spend more time and effort on this blog.
I’ve been going in and out with this one. Last year’s schedule and dynamics didn’t allow for much room to write and it has honestly been quite frustrating for me, seeing myself come up with sporadic ‘update’ posts all the time without actually going deeper into writing about the experiences I’ve encountered. That and how I’ve now a huge backlog of unedited pictures and unstructured drafts just sitting there, waiting to be published. So I’m planning to change that this year, and at the same time improve on my blogging skills (ie. content, photography, post-processing, writing, design, HTML/JavaScript/all the technical trappings that don’t seem evident at first glance although they play a HUGE part, and so on so forth). Speaking of which, I’ve to work on this layout. I’ll most probably swap it for an even better one in due time but this will do for now.

Dance more.
Dance is one of the things I’m incredibly passionate about and would love to spend more time on this year, considering that my schedule has changed quite drastically and thus bestowing me with the capacity and flexibility to do this. I’m already taking action on this and am aiming to bear some fruit come the next month or two. And in conjunction with what I call my fit year, I’m also considering yoga or pilates (thoughts?).

Organise my life.
This pretty much applies to every aspect of my life as I tend to collect thoughts, ideas, things on a daily, if not hourly, basis without necessarily organising them in some way to make them more accessible and manageable. And I had to deal with the ensuing consequences, mainly bouts of overwhelm and throwing myself off balance, and then needing to pick up from where I left off once I’ve gotten things sorted. It causes tonnes of unnecessary work so it’s crucial I do this especially since this year is going to be the most multifaceted yet. Perhaps it’s even something worth documenting, this organising process.

Redo my abode.
Well, room. It’s what I can work with for now since I’ve yet to have my own place here in Malaysia. I’ve always had an affinity for tasteful interior design – amongst other design fields – and have been compiling inspiration for quite some time now. I’m planning to switch up the furniture, add new decor and accents, maybe even do a repainting. Change the entire vibe of the space, essentially. I think it’s a coming-of-age thing of sorts. Neutral colour scheme, white furniture, gold accents, perhaps a touch of fresh flowers.. you get the gist. More on this one later on.

Be more daring.
The year itself had already begun on such a note, but I’d like to be bolder and push the boundaries even more this year, be it in my career, the shoots I do, dance, networking and meeting new people, or even just how I am as a person. Fortune favours the bold (to an extent), after all. And last but definitely not least,

Challenge myself every day.
and enjoy every moment of the year. +1 for learning something new or honing existing skills every twenty-four hours. +2 if it’s every twelve hours. +16 if it’s every three hours because I believe in exponents.

Happy 2015, everyone! Here’s to a beautiful year filled with indulgent experiences, goals and dreams as sweet as the most decadent desserts, and plenty of well-earned success. Nineteen days late but I blame it on Malaysian timing.

xx

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of
    any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some
    time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look
    forward to your new updates.

    levels of testosterone associated with certain medical
    conditions.

    I believe what you said made a ton of sense. However, what about this?
    suppose you composed a catchier post title? I am not suggesting your information isn’t good, but suppose you added a headline that makes people desire more?
    I mean Hello, 2015! – VIELEONG is kinda plain. You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they
    create article titles to get viewers to open the links.
    You might add a related video or a related pic or two to
    grab people excited about everything’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.

  11. December 6, 2016 / 2:25 AM

    You are so interesting! I do not believe I’ve truly read a
    single thing like this before. So nice to find somebody with some genuine thoughts on this subject.

    with your presentation however I to find this matter to be actually something which
    I believe I’d by no means understand. It seems too complicated
    and very broad for me. I am looking ahead on your next put up, I will try to get the hang of it!

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested
    to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83
    views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with
    someone!

  39. Heya! I realize this is sort oof off-topic however I had to
    ask. Does managing a well-established blog such as yours require a
    llarge amount of work? I’m band new tto opedating a blog however I
    do write in my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog
    so I can easily share my personal experience and thoughhts online.
    Please let mme know if you have anyy kind of recommendations or tips
    for brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

    You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting
    videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  44. December 10, 2016 / 3:55 PM
