I’m in London now. It’s the first time I’m back without Fadza so I’m missing him super duper much. Passing by familiar places and I’m reminded of him, so I get my emotions spurts thinking about how much I miss my husband. I mean, my whole London life is basically me and him so it’s not the same #imsolameiknow I haven’t even gone to Harrods or Selfridges, that’s crazyyyyy and that’s how meh I feel! Haha. Thank God I have my parents here (who coincidentally came to London on these dates too… why do I get the feeling they’re following me -___-“) so at least I’m not completely lonely haha.
I still haven’t blogged about me turning 30 yet. I had an amazing day full of surprises but it’s going to be a long one so I’m still KIV-ing that to when 1) kids aren’t bothering me, 2) that will be 11pm and 3) i’m not sleepy. So umm, don’t count on it anytime soon haha.
But I just want to talk about one of the presents I got for my 30th. I was showered with gifts and I was really the luckiest girl on the day. But one gift that topped it all off was a gift money can’t buy.
As I write this, I’m now at a place you’d never find me. A kickboxing centre haha. I’m just here to accompany Fadza because he wanted the kids to be exposed to martial arts in hopes that they’ll be tough cookies. Well… at least Mariam will be, and she’ll protect Daniel bahahah.
I can’t believe it’s my first post in 2018 now and it’s already the 20th! Like whattttt old Vivy would never let weeks go by without updating Proudduck! This new Vivy is so annoying. Such a slacker!
It’s been a while since I blogged and I’m admittedly finding it hard to balance blog and vlog and instagram and instastory. If I were doing social media fulltime it might be easier, but there aren’t enough hours to the day after working and mom-ing! Especially because my resolution this year is….. drumroll….. to wake up earlier!
It’s the long weekend now, the last one for 2017. The fireworks will start in about 2 hours and I will either be asleep, or… at my parents’ house. #wild #alwayswasalwayswillbehaha The clock will strike midnight and that’s it – goodbye 2017, hello 2018.
2017 passed us in a flash. Summing up my own; I renovated my house, my Daniel went to big school, I had the second season of my reality show, I won a lot more business and social media awards, I was named Forbes 30 Under 30, I was on the cover of Prestige and Tatler magazine, I went to Stanford, I opened more stores, I started a cosmetics line, I collaborated with the Crown Princess of Brunei, I represented the youth in front of the Prime Minister, I was more active with public speaking, I got a verified blue tick on Instagram, I reached a million followers on Instagram, I celebrated my 11 years anniversary with Fadza, I started my YouTube channel, oh, and I turned 30 earlier this month.
People always assume that Fadza and I travel with our helpers and we have an army of help with us. Truth is, no glamour squad here. When we travel for shoots, it’s always just the two of us. And especially for our trips with the kids, it’s just the four of us. A lot of my friends bring their helpers and I totally support that – every mom should do you, girl, no one should judge! For me, maybe because I work so much, it sure is nice to be the proper full time clean-poop wash-vomit-all-day kind of parent sometimes, is it weird that I actually crave that nowadays? Haha. Work sure has been crazy so we definitely needed a family holiday.
