A year later.


I can't believe its been a year since I've written on my blog. How does something that is at one point such a hugely important part of your life, all of a sudden become something you just couldn't possibly make time for? I guess it's kinda like Kim & Kanye and their pride. One day you just decide that other things take priority and you decide, just like that, to give it away.

Lately I've had an urge to come back here. And so today, for some reason, I did.

Here's what's been happening in the past 12 months:

I started working for a counter-trafficking/anti-slavery non-profit called The Mekong Club which has been incredible and inspirational and equally shocking and depressing. I'll tell you more about it another time but if you want to check out what we do, have a look here.

Funnily enough, I no longer have a baby. No no no, now I have a 22 month old toddler who acts like he's got red bull in his veins. This whole parenting gig has changed ridiculously for me over the past year. It's no longer about purees and coochy-coos and breastfeeding. Now it's about making sure I don't say shit and fuck in front of him as he'll no doubt repeat it at the most inopportune time. And making sure he doesn't use his rather distinguishable unit-ness to run head first at full speed at unsuspecting gorgeous little girls, pottering about innocently with their cups of tea and dollies. It's about comforting him after his falls time after time, and watching him master so many amazing new things. He's funnier than I could have imagined, and kinder and gentler. Until he smacks me in the face. It's exhausting. And relentless. But still the best thing I've ever done in my life.

Baby #2 is only 12 weeks away. Mmmmm....yes, I know. Cray cray.

I'm pretty sure I've got stress incontinence. Hoping to god it's the pregnancy. Where has my dignity gone? That's right. I said goodbye to that alongside my placenta.

I haven't taken a photo with my DSLR in 12 months. It's the iPhone or nothing these days. Oh, the shame.

We travelled to Japan, Sydney twice and Bali this year. Not many miles compared to our usual travel agenda but more than enough with a red-bull feulled toddler. I've done 22 flights with Fletch since he was born. Pretty sure I've lost a good 5 years off my life as a result. Needless to say I'm not planning another one for quite some time.

Three years on, we're still in Hong Kong. Life here is good. Our friends are great. The searing humidity of summer is over and we're enjoying fresh sunny days and cool nights.

Lots more going on in my mind, in my life, in my future.
Hopefully it won't be another 12 months till I come back here and tell you more about it.

Thanks for the encouragement as I head to the airport today with my own two red bull boys... Glad you're back x

Hello again and congrats on #2.

I'm like you with the DSLR. The iPhone is all I have time for with my little one.

Great to have you back on the blog train ....time to sit and write is no doubt a luxury for you and will be ever more precious once little baby H arrives...but do what you can, when you can and we'll all be glad X

Hi Tai Tai, really used to enjoy reading about life in Hong Kong and seeing your photos. You can make a lot of difference in people's lives by blogging...best wishes & thanks for writing again.

Welcome back for this brief 12 weeks before everything explodes into action again ... lovely to hear you are well and thriving.

Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly dont know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

So happy you are back. Our babies are the same age and you frequently write what I'm feeling! And I too am pregnant with #2 (holy moly!) Keep the words coming- love it :))
