One of our goals in the upcoming years, is to live in 1 to 2 countries each year, for 1 to 2 months, and really immerse ourselves with culture, find inspirations, meet new people, and bring home things off the beaten path. We also decided we want to spend these travels learning new skills, advancing and developing whatever skills we already have. In line with this, I recently attended a workshop with Abbey Sy and Mikka Wee, to learn how I can better journal our upcoming family adventures. It’s always fun to learn new skills.
Here are some samples of Abbey’s work grabbed from her Facebook page.

How lovely right!!! The workshop was attended by young creative souls. 13, 15, 18 year olds and 20s! I feel like the lola during the workshop! Haha. But it’s great to be surrounded by youthful energy. Their eagerness to learn is very infectious! And love how talented Mikka Wee and Abbey Sy are. I noted a lot of quotable quotes from Mikka Wee. These girls are such darlings!
Here are a few of my snap shots from the workshop:
Here’s a sample of my very first work. Haha the kiddies can do a much better job.
Oh well, there’s always beginning to everything. And here I’m a beginner.
A few nuggets I picked-up from wordsmith Mikka Wee:
- It’s OK to put ourselves out there
- It’s possible for people to have really really good heart
- The more connected you are with your phone, the more disconnected you are with the world (my favorite)
- Appreciate the quietness
- Stories make you see things differently
- Live simply. You can live with less and still be so happy
- Find that balancing act
Good day everyone!
