Up The Rabbit Hole

I'm back to blogging, after my super, duper, oober long hiatus.

Just realized that I haven't written a proper post for 2014.  I have been posting photos and random articles, but not quite writing.

Just when I was asking myself - who the hell reads this shit anyway? - I realized that people spend a lot of time on the internet looking up random stuff. And...
  1. This blog has 15k page views (Altho I know that this is 'Mickey Mouse' stats compared to some of the heavyweight bloggers out there, it's kinda a big deal for me)
  2.  I was chatting with this random dude & when he found out that I did Liquido, he was like.. hey, I used to follow your blog until you stopped writing. I thought that you had an interesting story.
Whoa. People read this shit. People find this interesting. And some people actually follow this. Like, whoa.
Ever since that dude said that, I made a mental note that I really should continue updating this blog on a weekly basis (at the very least). So this will be my second attempt for 2014 (ever since January - LOL!)

I suppose most of you have no clue what's going on in my life. More so for those that have not been following this blog since 2012.

To put things mildly, the wedding that was suppose to take place in Rio de Janeiro in October of this year has been called off. Needless to say, the 2 months that followed were tough. I managed to snap out of my mopey state after 2 months and what happened after that was that I just went out a lot. For a good month, I was out drinking/ partying 5-6 nights a week.

Good friends have stayed close, helping me through this. I think most of them realize that I need to go through the stages of healing and they remain a 10 minute drive or a phone call away.

I lost my focus and all the plans that I had for Liquido for the first half of 2014 came to a complete halt.

Anyhow. Fast forward to today. 1 June 2014.

I realized that I am healed when:
  • I've stopped dwelling on the past and started looking forward to the future again :)
  • I started to care and worry about my business and have the will to stop partying and start working hard again

Remember how I was advising everyone AGAINST going to Brazil for the World Cup 2014? A random string of events has lead me to purchase a spontaneous flight and I will be in São Paulo during the first week of the World Cup 2014.

This is funny, cuz I've been telling everyone NOT TO GO, but end up going myself. The irony :)

The idea is that my Brazil trip will be my little getaway and to return back to KL refreshed with renewed focus to bring my little business to higher levels. And to set myself straight with regards to my personal life as well.

I'm looking forward to being in São Paulo again and stuffing my face with pichana, feijoada, coxinhas, pão de quiejo, pastel.. and not to mention desserts like açai and pavé. Oh - and lots and lots of bhrama beer. Big fat bastard more ON - in 6 days :D

Looking forward to chilling with my Brazilian best friend Eduardo and other loved ones again. Unfortunately, it's frigging winter in São Paulo, otherwise I would definitely hit one of the beaches or spend lots of time in Parque Ibirapuera, cycling, jogging or reading a book in a hammock.

I intend to write a blog post every single day when I'm back in São Paulo. Just to share the experience of the so-called World Cup 2014 fever while I'm here. I have a strong feeling it's gonna be one big mess with riots & total CHAOS going on.

Having lived in that crazy, crazy city for 2 years - I'm not expecting any less. And don't worry about me. I'll stay clear of any real trouble and I'll probably have my local friends surrounding me for most part. So I'm good.

Watch this space, yo! <3
