The inability to stop

Well hello there and welcome to Easter weekend! For all of you who got to see Russell Peters last week, congratulations, it sure as hell was a milestone for me to experience him live (and get a photo with him). I don't think I'd ever have dreamed this day would come.
Oh and for those of you who don't know, the other person in the photo is the very funny Ruben Paul (not to be confused with Paul Reubens aka Pee Wee Herman).

Well getting back to life. This last 1 month has been a very, and I mean very life-changing month for me. The major thing was I got sick, I got overwhelmed, I got stressed out, I got to do things I only dreamed about and last but not least, I survived.

I also got myself hooked to the TV show Arrested Development. Man, that is some very, very good writing. If you don't know what to watch, I strongly suggest Arrested Development.

Anyway, in the last month I also officially had the honor of becoming the KELY Support ambassador.

I've always been pro-the-youth-just-needs-a-chance-and-a-mentor because of all the great people that have been in my life and now I have the chance to work with this organization.

The truth is, on the same day as the "official-ization", I was feeling like shit. I mean I wasn't feeling well (look at my eyes in the photo) and I was literally powering-through everything. After the ceremony, I had to rush to a Chinese comedy show that night, and finally by the end of the day I was done. I mean, I was really, really burnt out. A few days after that I hit a point where my mind just crashed and needed a proper reboot. I decided to just take half a day off from the world where I accepted that I needed a break. I treated myself to a Chinese/Thai (fusion) massage and that was what I needed. I just needed a moment to stop, breathe and let my body take a break.

I'm happy to say, I'm back on track, not sick and at 90% normal again. I went for a couple of workouts and clearly I am not at 100% yet but it's just a matter of time. With the Easter weekend, I'm expecting to get fully back on track after these holidays and have more great news to share :)

Oh and if you were at the Esperanza Spalding concert at HK Cultural Centre, was it me or were the acoustics absolutely terrible!? Oh well, thank goodness for good speakers and her albums.

Happy Easter!
