My, me and I

Hey Everyone~

You might have guessed from the title today is all about me! (Not in an egotistical sense) But just so you can all get to know me better. When I started blogging, I had so many ideas in my head. Thus it has created an absolute chaos onto my blog, so much so I have forgotten to introduce myself properly. Also I have decided to change my name from “hitherandyond” to a more defining name that speaks to me, simply because it is similar to my real name. 😉

When I started blogging, I had so many ideas in my head. Thus it has created an absolute chaos filled with random thoughts and topic onto my blog, so much so I have forgotten to introduce myself properly with 10 facts about myself.

  1. I was born a twin, not identical. I have a twin sister who is 5 minutes younger than I am. 🙂
  2. I am left-handed! Any left- handed people out there?
  3. I love dogs AND cats. In the future, I would like to adopt either one of them and maybe more.

    This is my sister’s cat. 🙂 
    4. I have four sisters and no brothers. Coincidentally I wrote this for the fourth fact!

5. I don’t drink Coffee and prefer herbal tea over anything else.

Tea anyone?

6. I can speak Mandarin fluently as well as Cantonese, although I am a bit rusty since I haven’t spoken Cantonese in a long time. And of course, English too!

7. The Library used to be my second home, I went there since I was five and till this day I still hold the old addition of the library card. My favorite genre would have to be historical fiction because you get an insight into the past and the lives of people long ago.

 

Books on my bookshelf. 🙂

8. I dance! Ballet to be more precise. However, I am not the conventional dancer who began discovering the dance world as a young girl. I started quite late at sixteen. It has made me more persistent than ever to defy the standard route for dancers. I also have a dance blog!

9. I love photography, as you might have noticed, especially nature ones.

Love this picture. ❤
10. I grew up watching spirited away, Howl’s Moving Castle and other prominent Studio Ghibli animations. My love of art flourished as a kid. Disney has also been a source of magical moments in my childhood as well as DreamWorks. You could say I have always been an artist at heart.

Hope you guys enjoyed getting to know a little about me. As always have a good day and I will see you in my next post. 😉

ps. Thank You for 60 followers! I haven’t been posting an awful lot and the content I have is somewhat random so thank you for being patient and kind. 🙂

Much Love-

M.

Out into the Woods

 

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Today I went on a journey out of the woods or more precisely into the dense woodlands/grassland of what used to be the Isle of Green. A.k.a Ireland. I

wasn’t alone though on this trip I was among many other people who had to carry out an ecology trip/study in a grassland/woodland and luckily my school has chosen phoenix park/Dublin Zoo to carry out this ecology trip and I am very grateful for that. After, 3 hours of gruelling hard work we were finished with it and were left to wander on our own around the Zoo which was a Superb reward.
It was my first time in Dublin Zoo actually since 2/3 years ago when I went with my family. Back then I did not realize how suffocating and enclosing these closures were for the animals. Now that I am back I feel so miserable but at the same time awed at the beauty and wonder of these creatures. The Animals seemed all to be in good health and was probably affected by the cold weather as I was. Who knew the cold would come so soon! I did not get to see all animals as I had to return to our bus to go back home. Fortunately, I brought my camera with me and took some decent pictures. I did not take all the animals because I feel quite guilty for being that annoying tourist that flashes and points their cameras in every direction of the animals. However, I did try to take these pictures subtlely and that kind of made me feel better.

Favourite Shot! I love this one because I have never made a close up on a wild animal before

I’m really happy with this shot. It looks so natural.
