My Story

 It’s 29th of March, 2015. I’m sitting on a plane to Singapore, bored as can be and I have an epiphany… I shall start a blog! I don’t want to call it a blog as I’m not your typical blogger.  I’m as spontaneous as a thunder and as weird as a Siberian summer.  IContinue reading “My Story”

Smile, my favorite medicine!

If you ask pretty much anyone who knows me to describe what I’m like, you’d possibly get an answer like “happy person” or a “contagiously goofy smiler”. This is something that I’ve heard about myself since I was little, and I couldn’t ask for a lovelier description. I might not be the prettiest duckling inContinue reading “Smile, my favorite medicine!”

The Power of Shinrin-Yoku

Yesterday I was sitting and chatting with my sister and a friend about the power of nature. About the harmony and balance that nature can offer us when everyday life gets too overwhelming and stormy.
