I seldom talk about politics and what more about politicians. Even when I was in Malaysia, I only voted once for the general election because most of the time I was living abroad and have not much interest in Malaysian politics. Moreover, the restriction to freedom of speech in Malaysia have caused majority of Malaysians including me to be careful with what we speak about the politics situation in my country.
Since I migrated in the UK, I am amazed that the people are allowed to throw their opinions and thoughts freely.
Today, Theresa May, the lady UK Prime Minister officially entered the Downing Street office replacing David Cameron. I have been reading articles on the news about how strict she is and a mirror to the former iron lady, Margaret Thatcher.
As an outsider living in the UK, I find it interesting to live in a country that would be lead by lady leader. Historically, Malaysia has never experience having lady prime minister. Despite the rumors that she hates and would chased out the migrants, I am looking forward to see how this new lady leader lead UK especially now in Brexit situation.
P/S: Since yesterday, pounds has increased slightly. Correct me if I’m wrong.
Since I came back to UK, I have been hibernating myself from writing. Is not that I have nothing to say, but too many things need to sort out while I welcomed 2015. I have been making lots of thinking what are my wish list for this year. Apart from hunting for jobs in legal industry, I am thinking to expose myself in business. So, before I came back to UK, I joined my friend as her business partner and seems like we are the founder of bARTik project which if you look into my blog pages, I have included in the page list.
Joining business? I know it is scary and risky however, if I don’t start to expose myself now, how should I learn, right? Basically, the aim of our business project is to sell items made from batik cloth traditionally handmade from East Coast of Malaysia. In some ways, we are actually helping out the East Coast economy as well as promoting our ancestor arts. All items are 100% handmade from the fabric itself until it is produced into one particular product.
At the moment, we have produced a cross body bag collection, pouch and coming soon kitchen items. We have not yet develop our own business website and have been using Facebook and Instagram as our marketing source. The market demand is good locally in Malaysia however, we are trying to bring our items internationally. Of course this would be listed in my 2015 wish list.
I am also busy updating a manual of Hospitality and Travel Law which I collaborated with a lecturer from my former University that I worked for. I am glad that somebody is helping me out to sell my books as part of my yearly income. This has been inserted into my wish list too for this year.
Adding more to my wish list are to be a better wife to my husband and better person as a whole to God and the rest of the people out there.
More than 30 days, I was back home in my country, Malaysia. Among all days at home country, I had the most wonderful three days vacation with my family at Avilion, Port Dickson situated in one of the 14 states in Malaysia, Negeri Sembilan. It is a 6 stars beach resort with chalets built up on the water itself. 24 hours swimming access, great activities for both adults and kids; seriously you will never get bored.
The resort itself has its own restaurant with good taste of Malaysian food but if you want to have the local seafood experience, just drive a bit to the small town. There are lots of seafood restaurants you can choose. My favourite food is the salted egg creamy crabs. Awesome taste!
