Life's been crazy hectic lately - I'm juggling full-time work, trying to finish up two art projects, AND preparing for a conference in the States in mid-April!
This is how a typical day in my life this month looks like:
7.30am - alarm rings. hit snooze
7.30-8.30am - hit snooze a few more times
8.30am - jump out of bed, wash up, get dressed quickly, catch a bus/taxi, get makeup done in bus/taxi (with people staring).
9.30am - get to work. down coffee to kickstart my day
9.45am - 6pm - design buildings around China and attend meetings...I'm working on a commercial and residential tower project in Kun Ming. I try my best to converse in Mandarin in the office (one of the reasons I'm in China is to improve my Mandarin!)
6-7pm - dinner! Today I had xiao long baos. Hopefully I don't end up looking like one
7pm-?? - art projects!
I'll be taking two months off work, starting next Monday, and I can't wait to slow down a bit and get some rest. So why am I taking time off work...? That's coz I've been invited to speak at the EG Conference in the States! :)

I'm very very very honoured to be invited as one of the 60 presenters in the 6th E.G. Conference in Monterey, California, which will be on the 12-14th April. I'm super excited to be meeting many highly qualified and talented people who will be present at the conference... and then there's me, the circus freak show performer from Borneo, haha.
I still can't believe all this is happening, and I'm truly grateful for all the encouraging comments and support I've received in the last few months.
Here's a link to the list of presenters this year: http://www.the-eg.com/presenters
I'll be keeping this post short as I'm still working on my art project right now.
I can't wait to go to the States...the last time I was there, I was 11! I'll be traveling with my mum for a month, from San Francisco to Los Angeles to New York (which I haven't been...omgosh I can't wait to see some of the architecture there in person!!!)! And oh - speaking of my mum - I thought I'd let you know that she keeps a blog too... she blogs about food, and updates waaaay more often than I do! Here's her blog: http://hungerhunger.blogspot.com/
Have a great week :)
