Flowers or Weeds

In many of my blog posts, I have mentioned that my biggest dream when I was a teenager was to be a journalist. I was attracted to capturing life changing moments and putting them into writing, or snapping a picture of a moment that would never again repeat itself.

I started seriously blogging in June of 2013. I started putting together bits and pieces of my previous works, scattered over social media. I met Zen online, through a common interest - writing. This was way way back when Friendster was the "in" thing. She was the one who kept on prodding me to write, she gave me motivation, supported me and praised me for my blah-blah articles. 

Zen never failed to give me pointers and I learned a lot from her. She gave me new blogger friends, Betchai and Cherry, who like Zen gave their all out support to new bloggers like me. 

Zen is the genius behind the blog "The Letters In November". Betchai's talent in photography is showcased in the blog "The Joys of Simple Life", and Cherry's family centered blog "Sweet Memoirs" offers a good read every time. These three women are also behind the blog "The Salitype Society", written for a noble cause of supporting the education of two young children.

This post is to give thanks to these wonderful women - Zen, Betchai and Cherry for their wisdom, their help and their selfless effort to provide other people the hope to pursue their dreams. 

God bless you, my friends.

  1. I love you Eileen!!! The worldwide web truly does wonders! It connects us to like-minded individuals who change ourlives forever. In my case it was Betchai who gave me the push and inspiration to keep blogging. I felt too blessed by her generosity that I had the longing to pay her goodness forward... and there you were... the rest is history... amazing right? I have already met Betchai and Twinzy Cher in person but have not hugged you in flesh pa... so please do join us when we reunite okay? And how about writing for salitype too and joining us keep our scholar's dreams alive? Hehehehe... love you all sisters!!; )

    1. I love you too, sisterette! If we went to the same grade school together, we could've ended up as best friends for life! I hope we do get to meet one another so I can thank you personally for everything you've done for me. Bless you, Zen. Keep on inspiring!
