The BIG 4Zero

And so I finally subcumbed and started a blog. Adding to the zillions out there. Does the world need another blog? I guess not. Not even sure if I will have the energy to continue with this long term. But I figured, maybe, just maybe, I might be able to use this and publish a memoir one day. Hahaha!

So what finally made me decide to start one?

I guess when I realised that I'll hit the big 40 this year.

At 40, I am middle-age. An auntie. (But not a taugeh-plucking one though and I'll hit anyone with my wok if they call me that). But 40 is a pretty big milestone. If I live to a grand old 80, then I've already spent half of my life.

No, no, I'm not complaining or bitter or pining for the good old younger days. Goodness me, I don't think I ever want to go back to being a gawky 18. Wasting my time pining away for a pimple looking guy. No, they were sweet memories but I'm contented with the now, the present.

Which I think says alot.

Plus, the memory of an auntie isn't going to get any better.. so I guess I'd better start writing things down.

Memoirs of an auntie? Maybe?

Hi hi hi Tiffany!
How've you been? Remember me? Ms. Mar-fan? hee, I've been so good this year, right? :)
Flew over here after seeing bb's post. So so glad you decided to do this - have always loved your writing and followed your pieces. Really looking forward to more great sharing in your posts. Oh, and I know you'll keep this up....I needed a few kicks at the beginning but bb's got this way with gentle, encouraging, but very very effective pressure! She'll keep on your tail fa sure! heehee (kidding, bb!)Actually you'll probably enjoy it so much you won't want to quit.
