    Sakura got a new sakura bag from Pleats Mama. Haha, I actually blogged about it in here. It finally arrived tonight. So now I got new set of clothes from Goelia, new earrings from Mimi33 and a new bag from Pleats Mama. 😀 Whee! Okay, I should stop shopping completely now. It feels like it is Chinese New Year all over again haha.

    I am also preparing for my GCP Security exam followed by CISSP exam. I’m also heading to Hong Kong this year. I welcome all suggestions on what to eat, shop and sightsee for Hong Kong. 🙂 This is going to be my first trip to Hong Kong and same for my friends too. Feeling excited but also apprehensive because I broke my goal of not traveling this year. Oh well. Hopefully my finances are still okay after the trip. :/

    Happy International Women’s Day! Well, it’s technically 1 day late since it is 9 March today. 😀

    This year is especially special because of I realised just how little the female presence in the Cyber Security field or even in technology space. Swiping on apps certainly make me feel very, very rare because there aren’t many ladies in tech space. Lololol.

    Anyway, it’s a bit of pity that we don’t get gifts for the IWD. We did have activities though and I tried acrylic painting for the first time. I opted for the rose painting workshop and added stars into my painting as well.

    Well, the workshop was on 7 March and there were no activities on 8 March. I went for hotpot dinner with my Autodesk excolleagues and had a really good catchup.

    I went to office 4 days this week and whoa, it’s really tiring. So glad that I don’t need to do the same for next week – I hope. Fingers crossed!! I really need to find time to study for my GCP Security exam. Bleh. I haven’t even register for the exam yet. Gahhh.

    After about 2 weeks of “break” from studying, it’s time to get back to the studying mood tomorrow again. I got my GCP Security certificate to renew. I’m done with my AWS Security and Azure Security certificates renewal so now it is left with GcP Security for this year.

    I also managed to get 2 new blouses from Uniqlo this weekend. I am loving the new Uniqlo C series. It helps in glowing up as well. Haha.

    Yay, it is my last day of leave! Well, I am quite bored and is ready to go back to work. Unfortunately I injured my finger and now I wonder how to use the mouse. Oh well. Got to use other fingers for it then.

    I’m going for my regular dermatologist appointment this week and have to tell her that I have another surgery scar that she has to manage/handle. Haha. It’s like giving her more work lol.

    I can’t wait for the year to end. This year has been too hectic and stressful for me. I did manage to achieve new records this year too so life is not all bad after all.

    Saying hi to all the work stuff as I am starting to clear some work emails now…

    Moving on to the next flight across the Pacific Ocean, I did manage to sleep a bit – maybe less than 2 hrs? I’m glad that I brought my CISSP practice test papers digitally too. It’s kind of a better use of time to study instead of watching shows, I guess? Well, I failed my previous CISSP exam and have to retake it. I really should study harder and spend much more time for it in my second attempt. Each exam attempt is not cheap… Well, things I have to do to stay employable lololol.

    There were more turbulence in my second flight and it is making my stomach feeling a bit weird. Argh, it is still quite a long way to go.

    I started watching Divorce Lawyer Shin on Netflix as well.
