Sometimes I just don't have anything to write about. Then something kicks in and I have so much to say. These days I find myself in a routine that I created for myself and I often get lost in the days which drag on to weeks. But I do make a conscious effort to write at least once a month!
Most days, I wake up, check my phone, read some news, do my chores, have lunch and then half the day is gone. After that I get ready to go out and by the time I'm done with the errands and whatever else I need to do, it's already evening. While waiting or when I'm in the bus or train, I check to see if there is anything happening in the world that I missed! Hahahaha.
Stephen and I are news addicts. Whenever I use the computer, I'm sure to see some news portal that he's visited, waiting for me to browse through. We aren't alone because our friend, Jerome, is also like us and very often we meet and discuss politics, latest stories or just to "sembang" which sort of means to chat or catch up.
Anyway, this month has been an interesting one and I seem to have the desire to write a bit more than usual. Maybe it's because today marks five years since SFGEMS was created after I gave up on my earlier STEEST blog. In a way, it's a nice transition from when I was living in KL and then when I moved to Singapore. I didn't plan on that happening but somehow it marked the change in my life and the person I have become. Whatever it is, I'm glad that I didn't give up on writing. It's always been the best way to document my life and feelings. It's a glimpse into "me".
Five is the number of Grace and it's fitting that I've been in Singapore for over five years now and the day I moved here was my first high five moment of 2017. Today, this blog is also five. Hence the high five moment again. All glory, honour and praise goes to God for all these blessings in my life.
Even if I don't have a big fan club, my blog still garners random hits from all over the world and as at today has had 96063 page views. Not bad for five years of writing!!! Does it matter to me? Not really because I write for me and maybe my future grandkids (hee hee). I've said it before and I'll say it again and again because when I can no longer do this, I can come back to re-read and relive some of these happy or sad moments. It'll challenge me to remember things that I may forget some five or ten years from now. Will I even be alive then? That I do not know, but my blog will live on in the blogosphere forever!
