stateofjoy - I have to admit... It was a fun CNY celebration. Weird interrogations, quirky toddler love & great food/drinks with people who have open hearts. Thank you. 1h

stateofjoy - a moment of contemplation. There were so many thoughts, not just about climbing but life in itself. The paths to choose, whether I had enough strength enough, if it would hurt... And they were all good thoughts. Because we need to withdraw for a bit, I feel, to move forward. 3w

stateofjoy - this is what happens when you're seated beside someone artistic, who likes making fun of you. Your skin becomes a yolo signboard. @yoshh 1mon

stateofjoy - what do you do when you have gel nails you don't wanna pay to get rid off, but need to amend them cos nails GROW and you gotta cut them off? You adapt creatively. Ok so this was fun. While watching Breaking Bad no less. 1mon

stateofjoy - adventures with blu-tack by the little boy... Some days I do wonder what fills his mind. His work is so intricate, all that's shown fit onto the cover of an iPad. 1mon

stateofjoy - same jeans, black top, grey bags , mirror image ink and flip flops. When you hang out long enough with some awesome people, you start to dress & think alike. Or... Is it the other way round? 1mon

stateofjoy - thank you SO MUCH @prep.luxe and @5degreeshift for this gorgeous colour, it's a fabulous way to start the new year! I told their stylist to do whatever she wanted, and she gave me "something that will look sexy when I wake up in the morning." Hmm. Methinks she nailed it! Really excellent work... thanks babe!! 1mon

stateofjoy - with every trip made, I've found my heart grow bigger, stretching its limits to encompass a greater humanity. The world IS a large, seemingly cold place, but the stories we tell make it warmer. #passporttoasia #dailyscaryshit @passionpassport 2mon

stateofjoy - some gifts don't come wrapped in paper, tinsel and baubles. Humanity, a quietness of spirit and love are their garments, yet they offer no layers, but acceptance. Thank you @amsie and @quirkcreative for being such beautiful people. You've seen me at some of my worst moments. And I seem to always see you at your best. 2mon

stateofjoy - I guess I like a little goth in my food too. Aside from the macabre, this is actually healthy stuff for the body! 2mon

stateofjoy - just because in one odd instant, I really did happen to read a page where the time was exactly as mentioned. This book by Haruki Murakami titled "The Strange Library" was more a delight for the design than the weird tale it presented, but nonetheless, I enjoyed my night with it. @yoshh @5degreeshift might enjoy it! 2mon

stateofjoy - reposting @j.ironword because in the light of hearing about the passing away of some beautiful people I knew, and having recently encountered someone very beautiful in spirit... I have come to realize that we don't love as an exchange. We love because we can. Giving pieces of your heart away to people who might go away doesn't make your heart smaller; it stretches it beyond its current confines & limitations. 2mon

stateofjoy - we didn't take any pictures. We just ate, laughed, mocked, laughed some more and tried too many whiskies tonight... Thank you @5degreeshift and @yoshh for a beautiful night. You ladies are extraordinary. Who else understands the grain of wood, the feel of paper, the frame of pictures and using bare hands or chopsticks to tear apart a chicken or cake? Thank you for being you. And for the gifts that mean loads. Major hugs. 2mon
  •   5degreeshift This is your year (to come). 2mon
  •   stateofjoy @5degreeshift >> it is babe. And every time we meet... I pray I have an amazing story to tell. As I believe you'll have too. Thanks for being amazing. *hugs* 2mon

stateofjoy - a gift from my lovely neighbor. She is really a precious soul. Candles when our block suffered a blackout, chicken feet+herbs to cook a soup, homemade local goodies like yam cake, new year hot pot, fresh fruit on hot days... People like her make life beautiful. 2mon
