I'm pretty surprised that it's been almost 3 months since I last posted. ...even more surprised that people still come here to check for updates. I can only blame myself for being this neglectful.
To be honest, I didn't want to reply to some of the emails and messages. However, since it is not fair to choose to reply to some and not others I decided not to reply altogether.
Almost all the messages and emails I received was due to that past blog post about anxiety. I had several face-to-face confrontations with people which I did not want at all. The meaning behind me making the blog post was that I would not have to have so many confrontations. I actually typed that out. I know it was out of concern and I do appreciate that concern for my well being but please....please don't. At least not in person. This makes it 100000x worse for me.
I panic the most always when people start conversations with me by saying,
"Hey Anna, I read about your problems..."
...so casually and some who even smile when they say it.
People with issues usually never come out to tell people.
So please...please don't make me regret my decision to blog about it.
I'll address a majority of the emails here to simplify myself.
ONE. If you had or currently have a similar situation to me I'm really not in the position to help you. I wish I could, but I really have no right.
TWO. Unfortunately I will not respond to anyone asking me for advice on how to lose weight or become skinny. Being skinny due to an illness is not something to glamorize. Don't ask me what I eat, when I eat etc. I've posted many food pictures of what I eat on my blog. To clarify, I really do eat what is in those pictures. I can't stress this enough.
THREE. I do not appreciate anyone reblogging what I wrote (especially in a post as personal as that one) and passing it off as their own. It actually felt horrible to find that others are copying and pasting certain lines of my blog post and passing it off as theirs. Literally word for word. Worse, indirectly insult me for being sick & underweight in the same blog post. Might as well tell me straight on. Someone emailed me a link to an acquaintance of mine and I had never felt such disappointment in my life. I will not disclose any names as I don't want to point fingers or wish to escalate any drama but I hope that this person takes down their post or at least the comments directing towards me. No further comments.
FOUR. At the moment, even though I am honored and would love to I will not be taking any sponsorship opportunities. I feel my blog is, at this moment, not consistent enough be be at level to accept any opportunities but appreciate those who asked. Hopefully when I get back to a more routine blogging.
Finally, I'm feel very thankful to those of you who had sent me supportive emails & messages. It was also very touching to read emails from those who do not have English as their native language but tried their best to communicate to me. It made me smile to see how much effort people took to write. I've read every one of them and it's really what had motivated me to keep going at that time.
It's been so long since I've put up that post but I still hear people talking and asking....
because I felt it was necessary, I have taken off that past blog post so I can sleep in peace haha.

Wearing my favorite Datura high waist Shorts :)
Up until now I was kind of afraid to blog. Weird right? There's so much other good things I could blog about. So many hauls, hairstyles, outfits etc. that I've never posted. I hope I still have the courage to post them.
Thanks for understanding ♥
P.S. 41 days until I fly back to Hong Kong! :)
