“Millennials expect to create a better future, using the collaborative power of digital technology.” ~Mal Fletcher~

I went here to submerge myself in the company of Millennials. By heart. Fortunately, I discovered that there are also guests belonging to my age. Oh, and why am I so concern with my age? It’s just that I’m worried I’m so engrossed in my own world and is no longer aware of what’s currently going on in the outside world, and since I found in my heart a deep love for blogging, going out of my way, won’t hurt a bit. And so I guess, this visit will show me ropes somehow.

Honestly, I felt like a mom socializing with my son’s friends. I was right, this niche belongs to them. Or populated by like 80% of them. So I belong to the remaining 20%. Mystery solved.

It was a bit awkward and the feeling of being in the wrong place. But what scares me is if there’d be one (or two) who will address me as mommy! or mudra! or mamshie! Though, luck is on my side, no one did.

I just enjoyed my time there watching from afar, these young ones being in the limelight. I envy (the good envy), their enthusiasm and focus at what they want to happen in their lives, not minding bashers or those who will eventually become their follower, they just do their thing because they feel like it and that’s what makes them happy. And I guess happier because out of sharing, they were able to influence others in a very positive way. Just like it did on me. Just listening to them made me smile already the whole time. I felt I belong here, regardless of my age.

PS

On an equal footing, I truly enjoyed the buffet Dusti Thani served that came with this event. Obviously, I took more photos of them than the activity itself.

Felicitations on this event, to Nuffnang specifically. And Congratulations to the winners too! =)

More power.

-An only daughter. A mother of an 18 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! Though, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow, blue as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food as well, along w/ broccoli, prawns and mushrooms. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. As I used to write even when I was a teenager, and I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost my father a year before and I guess in one way or another, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son and mother, as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is so negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for them, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
