July ’17 Goals

July, we are reunited at last!

Oh July, my favourite month, you are finally here! I love July because I’m a July baby. Hence, the serious love for this particular month! With that realization, I am hitting the 28 this year! How do I feel about adding another year into my life? Well, that’s for another blog post.

Since July is here, I want to make a good use out of all 31 days of them! I need my July to be a good bang as July don’t come very often. Therefore, starting July, I decided to make a list of small goals, which all these goals have very high success rate for me to achieve. This idea of creating list of small, achievable goals came when I was reading Brooke’s blog post, which really inspired me on putting my goals into words.


  • To be more diligent when it comes working at the office.
  • To wake up earlier than usual.
  • Need to do room cleaning once a week.
  • Get a tattoo before July ends.
  • To get the Haruki Murakami’s newly translated book “Men Without Women”, which I just found out it’s already in store here in Kota Kinabalu!


  • Start making real saving because I’m now in a serious relationship so most probably you’ll be hearing wedding bells in the near future. I need to get ready cos my wedding is going to be lit!
  • Less buying things that I don’t really need cos I don’t really need another nude lipstick nor nail polish but that can be a tough one!
  • Need to cut down my expenses to just the primary necessities like my phone bill, car fuel, student loan.
  • Not to overspend at Sandakan & Kuching!


  • Start running at least twice a week.
  • Doing some Freeletics when I’m not doing anything.
  • Need to hydrate even more!
  • Get more sleep. 


  • To at least blog once a week for the whole month.
  • Keep creating new content this month.
  • To finally post my new blog project/series.
  • Hopefully to finally get my own domain before July ends!

I hope I can achieve all the goals that I have for July 2017. My July is going to be pumpin’ and so hectic as I have so many travelling to do! I will be heading to Sandakan next week and on the 15th to the land of the feline *purrr*, Kuching Sarawak for the Rainforest World Music Festival 2017 with some of my girlfriends, mi hermano and for the first time ever, I am travelling with my boyfriend, Clarence. Never travelled with a boyfriend before so I am pretty excited to see how this trip will test our relationship.

I wish everybody to have a great month of July!

Until next post, Jess x


Bye 2016, Hello 2017



I hope it’s still not too late to wish everybody Happy New Year 2017! I am back from blogging hiatus and I hope this commitment of mine is here to stay. One of my resolutions is to be blogging more often like I used to and to make this resolution a success, I have scheduled myself to post something at least twice a week and lets keep our fingers crossed so that I will be committed this time.

2016 has been such a wonderful year to me whereby it was a year of self discovery and I dare to say I loved myself so much last year that I basically did everything that my heart desires while at the same time burnt quite a huge amount cash for those amazing experiences but hey, I absolutely have no regrets for all of it. In the relationship department, I was single the whole year of 2016 (albeit a few misunderstandings with some guys) and I choose to be that way cos I just want a year that I can just focus on loving, splurging and spend time for myself.

As for 2017, I shall keep the same vibe from 2016 that is to live life happily but at the same time I want to achieve even more in 2017, which are to create and to inspire. In fact, I was inspired from reading my friend’s blogpost by setting easy themes/goals and grouping all the resolutions that I have into each goals that I have set so that I can really execute all of them and making my 2017 awesome! So I have finally came up with these 2 themes which are Focused and Creativity.


  • To be more focused on achieving my health goals (eat cleaner, run more and further, keep hydrating)
  • Save more money for future use (travel, new experiences and more travel)
  • Focused more on my own happiness (counting blessings)
  • Spend more time with family and God
  • Looking at the positive side of things
  • To be more organized of my own life



  • Cook more variety (trying out more cuisines)
  • Be more creative in my workout routines (MMA, Boxing)
  • #apictureaday for Instagram
  • Post varied blog contents (fashion, cooking recipes, adventures)
  • Continuing on my poetry project
  • To go for hand lettering workshop
  • Bedroom revamp


Cheers to a happier, prosperous, even more blessings in 2017. Let’s live!!
