About

That’s me!

Hi there!

My name is Sharon and welcome to my blog. I had been wanting to start one up for some time and I was glad I finally got around to it. But I wasn’t able to consistently keep up with it and it is now 2016! Five whole years from my very last post! I have been working hard during that time hence why blogging fell to the bottom of my priority list. But I do miss writing and I want to get back into it. I don’t have a razor sharp focus on any one specific topic as yet, so for now I blog about things that jumps into mind.

I am a physiotherapist and I specialise in the musculoskeletal field (i.e. back pain, neck pain, sports injuries, persistent pain etc). My biggest achievement so far is that I can now proudly say I hold a MSc. Advanced Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy from King’s College London and am now a member of the Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists. I also do acupuncture, hydrotherapy and clinical Pilates among other things but I will stop talking about work now.

I have far too many hobbies, which take up an insurmountable amount of time. I am a hugely sentimental person and I love photos and scrapbooking. You can never take the exact same photo or capture the exact same expression twice, which is why I like to have my camera at the ready, even if it is just my phone. I love to eat, read, draw, shop, travel, play the piano, dabble in crafty things, and from time to time, become obsessed with cleaning.

I love doing things that I’ve never done before even if it terrifies the living daylights out of me, which is easy if you have a fear of heights. I loved indoor rock climbing but not being able to let go of the wall despite being securely harnessed is a bit of a problem, though I’m getting better at it. Coasteering (jumping off a 50-foot cliff into the sea) was perhaps the dumbest but most exhilarating experience. You definitely want an experienced guide with you for this, which I did. All in all, I believe we only have one life to live and should live it to the full.

A self-confessed food addict and avoider of the gym (not a great combination!), I have to make myself find ways to keep in shape. Gotta tone that tum and shape that bum, as they say. For now I enjoy Pilates, yoga (mainly for stress-management), badminton and walks in the park. Of course, diet plays a hugely important role too and I eat as healthily as possible, but I do fall off the band wagon every now and then (hey I’m only human!). I like food that is healthy, quick and easy to make, but still packs in fistfuls of flavour. Who says you can’t have your cake, eat it, and still fit into a bikini? Creating such foods on the other hand can be a challenge and I’m making great efforts to learn.

My mission is to help others look good and feel good about themselves in life and in my own very little corner of the World Wide Web. It is my hope that I would make a positive difference (big or small) to the people who read my blog. Whether it is by sharing an encouraging word, putting a smile on your face, lifting your spirits, or providing you with some amusement at my expense!

I would love to hear from you so do leave your comments and get in touch.

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you come back soon!

 

Love,

Sharon xx

    Hi Sharon,

    I’m a near random person who just dropped by your blog. I stumbled across it through Hao Chen’s facebook (my other half knows him). Just to say that I thoroughly enjoyed reading all your posts. They are absolutely hilarious but yet down to earth. I practically laughed my butt off.

    If you have the time, do check out my blog site http://www.pehsun.blogspot.com (aka Squeeze the PUG). Its probably a little skewed towards fashion but what the heck… As what you said “What girl does not love shopping?”

    Looking forward to reading more of your posts in the near future!

      Hi Peh Sun,

      Thanks for dropping by and I’m glad to have been of some amusement haha. You’ve got great style, love your blog and all the great clothes! Definitely one to keep my eye on :). You should visit Hong Kong one day because I think you’ll absolutely love the shopping there.

    Thanks! It happens that my other half’s family are from HK and I have been there twice already. No doubt, it’s a shopper’s heaven.

    Ooh. More ways for me to procrastinate! I can’t believe you jumped off a 50-foot cliff. Looking forward to reading the recipes, the words “quick” and “easy” are right up my street ;)

    Oh, thanks. I don’t know, but I have the urge to write poetry this past few days.

    I like your photo, by the way. It reminds me of the main character in My Sassy Girl (Korean version). Have you watched that movie?

      At least your poetry is good, and not hiney-cringing like the pieces of non-poetry I try to write sometimes haha.

      Oh thanks. I’ve never seen that movie before. Just looked it up though and it looks interesting. Should watch it someday, it looks like a cute romcom. And sometimes I can’t help but love those kinda movies.

    Your zeal and zest for life is inspiring. I look forward to following your adventures here. Thank you for the kind words on the blog, as Joel Robuchon is my culinary hero.

    Be well

      Thank you Lazaro, and thanks for dropping by :D. Robuchon is amazing, especially his signature velvety mashed potato! Do you have any idea how he makes it? So smooth, creamy, tasty, I’ve never had anything like this. So heavenly.

    Sharon,

    Here’s a link to my method for making pomme puree, it is very similar to the Robuchon method.

    Be well

    Hi Sharon! What a lovely blog you have, and I loved reading about you! I’m also a person with too many time-consuming private interests, and sometimes it’s a challenge to get every organized. ;)

    I really like your approach to eating! And the wonderful picture of you that you’ve put up here. :)
