Go figure

"I've always thought there are two ways of getting what you wanted in life. Forcing people to 
give it to you, or making them want to give it to you." - Candace Bushnell

Back then I knew what I wanted. I wanted my own shop, baking beautiful cakes and cupcakes, just for weddings. But as I got older, I realised that, this isn't what I really want; I do not know what I want. I really do not know what I want. 

Honestly, I haven't really gotten my life all figured out yet. There are just so many things I'd love to do: I'd love to write, just write, write about everything that comes into my head. I'd love bake, just bake, cakes and cupcakes with loads of pretty icings on them. I'd love to travel, just travel, travel all around the world. I'd love to design stuffs, I'd love to draw, I'd love to paint, just doing those things makes me happy. I'd love to be around clothes, shoes, bags, all the gorgeous and most stylish everything a girl can have. So, tell me, how it is even possible to know what I want to do in life, when I love so many things? But I guess, the truth is, I'm just so afraid to be caught doing just one thing.

But again, maybe, maybe sometimes we just need to stop analysing the past, stop planning the future, stop figuring out how we feel, stop deciding what we want and just see what happens. Because eventually everything will fall into place. Well, until then, laugh at all the confusion, live for the moment and hang in there, hang on really tight. Hang on, Jo!

I heart NY

"New York is made up of millions of different people, and they all come here looking for something." - Lindsay Kelk

I've fallen in love with New York City. The world's most dramatic city. The biggest collection of villages in the world. A third-rate Babylon. A city of prose and fantasy. I'm so in love, big time. I guess I fell in love with the city by just watching the life of Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City and The Carrie Diaries. I know all this sounds pretty lame, but NYC sounds like a place I'd love and want to live in. I'd love to be amongst millions of people, strutting in my very own pair of Manolo Blahnik on the sidewalk, enjoying a glass of cosmo in the best restaurant and bar in NYC, and hailing a cab by shouting "taxi" out loud, whilst holding out my arm, like how they do it in the movies.

Don't you just love the city life? Because I do. I love the city. I don't think I will ever, ever stop dreaming about NYC, not until I have my ass settled in The Coffee Shop. So I'm guessing I'll have to start saving up then!
