It’s been quiet here at my blog.
My blog’s 5th anniversary was 30th November just past and I forgot about it. What is the matter with me?!!
About three years ago I wrote about “The only constant is change” and I said I am going to slow down on blogging as I found a new job. The “new job” as it turned out was merely a job, my heart wasn’t in it totally so there was time for me to read and do everything else I love to do. Three years later I had to look for a job because the employer of that “new job” made me apply for my own job so that I could stay employed with them, hence the blog post “Scouring for how-to-get-a-job books“.
I don’t understand the rationale behind some companies who make employees apply for their own job or the next available job on the banner of “reorganisation”. If I were made to apply for other available job within the company, I may as well expend the same effort to apply for a job externally and work for a better company right? It became a mockery, since I was a top performer in the company and I decided to look elsewhere.
and so I did… and thank God that I landed on a dream job. A job that seems to be made for me… and I threw myself in it.
I have been continuously reading and blogging for 5 years and it feels like I have a reach a point I want to take it at my own stride, a point where I want to take a break. A break from reading and writing reviews rigorously, a break to experience other things in life, take care of new priorities, lift my head up from the book and look at the world around me with a new wonder.
I will still be reading but I won’t read reviewed as quickly as I used to.
Thank you so much for reading and following my blog. I am sure there will be a time when I will revive reading and blogging with the same vigour when I first started the blog, or occasionally I may decide to write about my travel experience. If you have a good book to share or any question you want to ask, do drop me a note because…. I will still have my eyes in the latest books and my occasional indulgence of having a good read, any news and comments will definitely make my day.
I won’t be doing my usual year end stats and countdown this year as I’ll be spending my Christmas and new year in Malaysia and Singapore. But I wish you an early Christmas and a wonderful new year 2014 (In the Chinese calendar it will be the year of the Wood Horse), may it be the year of wonderful things and abundance blessing for you.
