For those who knew me well, taking a break is never easy. In mid September, food poisoning and a minor fever forced me to rest a whole week, but my mind was so occupied with work that I hardly slept at all. After recovered, I worked 10++ hours/day to catch up with lost times but ended up with more health issues – backache, eye strain and muscle pain! I had pushed myself too far that it affected my own health this time.
I need a short-break from the online world, at least for a few days. I need time to reconstruct my strategies and come back with a rejuvenated mind and body. So if you’re reading this, I’m probably busy packing and getting some final things done before my flight tomorrow. So this week instead of a lengthy post, I’m sharing with you a recap of some of my favorite links, hope they will keep you company during my absence:
