The new Me!

It's been 5 years ago, since I left my job in the banking industry. With no back-up plans, I just decided it's about time. Back in my younger years, I always tell myself that I'll be happy having a 9 to 5 job in a corporate world for the rest of my life. I never see myself being domesticated ( I rarely clean my room). I was hardly at home during weekends, I have been always out shopping (my friends call me "Imeldific", I had almost a hundred pairs of shoes by the time I resigned from work) or having a night-out with friends.

But that all changed when my parents died, my life has made a 180degree turn. Suddenly, I want to do something different with my life. And the first thing I did was clean the house, funny, isn't it? My brother and I took out about 30 bags of mixed trash and other things that my mom wouldn't allow us to throw away when she's still with us. With that, I became a bit OC with everything, which is a bad thing (I'm trying to overcome this habit). I decided to pursue again my love for the arts, I almost enrolled in a fashion school but I was turned down because I lack skill in operating the sewing machine, (damn!, why did I throw away my mom's vintage sewing machine, hahaha!!!). As the years pass and I got married,  my priorities have changed dramatically, my hobbies now include gardening (I do composting), baking, carpentry, keeping the house clean and sometimes I still do a little bit of shopping (shoes, of course!), but you can usually find me in home and Houseware stores. My brother would often tease me of becoming like "Martha Stewart", which I don't mind at all. I may have traded my high heels to sandals, paper works to gardening and baking, blazers and skirts to T-shirts and jeans, from office to home, but still,  I'm enjoying  my new simple life and I'm loving it!
