Sometimes when the pace gets busy I go along for delivery rides to speed up process. All part and parcel of running your own business. Quick snap of this pretty lobby while waiting for the elevator.

The nice folks at CzipLee Malaysia @cziplee gave me this Unity Ribbon by Projek57 @projek57 when I dropped in for some stationery (okay I didn't really need stationery but one doesn't really need a reason to go to a stationery or hardware shop, does one?). I'm wearing my Unity Ribbon with immense pride...plus two strangers gave me high-fives. Wins and smiles all around.

If you've got no plans for tonight, head on down to Alexis on Jalan Ampang to catch Reza Salleh @rezasalleh and The Frankie Sixes @thefrankiesixes for some crowd pleasing swing numbers. We caught the intimate showcase last night and it was delightful. RM10++ at 10pm. Dress code applies. Details are on their page.

We had an active discussion in the lead up to International Women's Day, about discounts and freebies and the usual marketing bullcrap ... but it was a listless, half-as$ed chat that nobody really wanted to have, least of all me. Then it hit me - I work among women (from our founding team, to colleagues, to designers, to my branding soundboards, friends who rehydrate me with G&Ts) - women who have a deep sense and understanding that this Day is more than what marketeers sell.
.
Today when I wish others Happy International Women's Day, I realise that I'm doing this from a position of privilege - I was blessed to be able to grow up in a well-loved, safe, protected environment; I wasn't mutilated or married off as a child; I was privileged to go to school and university; then I worked in a corporate field that remunerated me for my skillset; I left because I had the privilege to own my own business - the privilege to follow my passion. I don't drive a car out of my own volition, not because I was told I'm not allowed to. I have the responsibility and privilege to vote. The privilege to continuously educate myself and freely share this knowledge. To own property, and travel, and love freely, and marry a man from a background completely different from mine.
.
So today is about remembering all the women who do not have the privileges we seemingly take for granted. It's about women who have never even heard of this thing called 'International Women's Day'. Women who have their worlds falling around them, and rights either being stripped away, or denied entirely, but who wake up every day, feed their children, teach them, and sing to them. Women who work in terrible environments for unfair, discriminatory wages, and persevere because that is what women do - they persevere. Then in quiet moments they whisper with deep strength to their children, "you will be more than this". Women who envision a better reality and so must we.

新年快乐 from the James-Leong family - our first official Chinese New Year. @dannyleongts
.
Sorry for the late wishes but we completely crashed after we closed up @nookflowers on the eve of CNY. After a restorative rest and a yummy homemade meal at Mummy James' all is blooming once again in our word.
.
It's a big year for us and we have many hopes, dream and wishes which we are looking forward to bringing to fruition. Wherever you are we hope that your hopes and dreams will be fulfilled, and wherever you are may you always have a kind word, people who love you, some sunshine, some music, and some flowers.

14 February 2018, 11pm. My 9th Valentine's Day as a Florista is done and dusted. Bones are aching in all manner of places! The last red rose has left the building. Team @nookflowers @missms_belinda & @dannyleongts enjoy a complimentary glass of bubbly at @dlegendsbar and @shankarsanthiram is slaving over a hot stove to cook our dinner 💙. Missing Zeynah @zeynah_, @the_ocd_mom Alia & Nicole who clearly had more fun plans - pfffth! What a week - tiring but amazing!

I know it's all about the rose this time of year but these jewel toned ranunculus babies make my heart soar!

Thank you Sumitra Selvaraj @sareesandstories for the opportunity to talk about The Philharmonic Society of Selangor @selangorphil, the onset of our 60th Anniversary celebrations, and most importantly what keeps us going. This is the third time The Phil has been featured on the show over the years, and we are deeply grateful for the support shown to our community choir during the show's run.
.
It was humbling go on after the extraordinary Dr Hartini Zainudin @tinizainudin9 and hear her speak so eloquently and passionately about children and their right to be protected and loved. Not forgetting the inspiring team from The Picha Project @thepichaproject who clearly lead from their heart. It was an enriching morning and you ladies are an inspiration!
.
Do tune in to Astro's Vinmeen HD (Channel 231) at 10pm tonight for the broadcast.

@ekkamai.my, you hit the right spot...again 😍. Late but thoroughly satisfying dinner started with this beautifully presented Miang Kham with roasted coconut shavings, shallots, fresh chili, ginger, garlic, lime with its peel, savoury dry shrimp, crushed roasted peanuts, and a refreshing dollop of lemongrass foam.

Blustery ominous clouds didn't detract the eye from these pretty lanterns bobbing in the gust of wind.

That's the last batch for 2017. Heading home for coffee, homemade buttery shortbread and the company of my favourite person.
