Taking Off

I am taking off into the skies again.

This time, I am jetting to Hong Kong. I am responsible for managing all marketing and branding activities for our HK office as well, but did not have the opportunity yet to meet the team there since I started my new job.

Well, today's the day. My flight's in 5 hours time.

I am looking forward to it, 'cos I have not been to HK for quite a long time. I miss the food most. Heard it's summer sale season over there right now, so though shopping's not my favourite cup of tea, I may just do it for the sake of it. Grab some nice dresses for work since I am there.

The TV brought some disturbing news though. Typhoons invaded HK last week and left more than 30,000 people stranded at the airport. Got some folks worried for me there for a moment, but I am sure everything should be fine now.

I will be back on Aug 15 - and I know my absence will be sorely missed (haha..). Just keep me in your prayers and before you knew it, I shall be back to haunt you.

Meanwhile, here's a little Elvinalogy for you to work on again. I kinda of miss these stuff so humour me, won't you? :)

Answer these little questions in any way you want, with reasons if you want to be more detailed.

Ten Questions (Inspired by John Baker's Five Questions)

1. What makes you laugh?

2. Which person is the greatest inspiration to you?

3. Which song touches you the most?

4. What kind of present would you get for my birthday?

5. What is your greatest fear?

6. What will be your dream job?

7. What makes you blog?

8. Which three blogs do your read every day?

9. How would you describe this blog to strangers?

10. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate this blog?

Looking forward to your attempts on Elvinalogy v3.0. For the rest who wanna know more about the Elvinalogy series, check these out: Elvinalogy v1.0 and Elvinalogy v2.0.

By the way, I have chopped off my long tresses and I have ash blonde, shoulder length hair now. I look like a wannabe Japanese chick.

"Ja-ne!"
