Hello! Welcome to my personal blog. My name's Clarice and my closest friends call me Rice. I think I like that Chicken Soup for the Soul book, I haven't read it though but I have a copy! >Read More.

Oh hello again :-) Welcome to my About Me page!

RiceSoupfortheSoul.com is my personal blog where I share my experiences, thoughts, feelings, and future wants (we'll get to this later). But yes, yuck, who wants to read about my feelings, right!?? *pukes*

I started doing diary in 1999. In high school, I enjoyed reading teen magazines and bought several back issues (since it's waaay cheaper than the latest issue!) It is also when I discovered my deep interest in foreign films and Hollywood movies. While in college, I studied Communication Arts and it's one of the best decisions I've made in my life! My college days were full of rainbows and unicorns, literally! Today though, I feel like I'm stuck with a writing style that is the same as those teen magazine Editor-In-Chief and Writers I used to admire. I wish that my writing style would grow up, catch up! Fast!

A year before college graduation, I created this blog. I've always been fascinated by the art of blogging. It is a mixed of creativity expressed in writing, photography/illustrations, and videos. The idea that any one in the world can have their own space to share their experiences, thoughts, and feelings amazes me! Another reason why I created a blog is to secure a place for my diary entries in the blogosphere. So it exists forever. Hi, NSA!

Here's a summary of how I evolved after college graduation:

2009
Internship in a Fashion Magazine industry, memorable experience but not interesting for me Graduated from college
Almost got scammed from a nanny job offer in the UK, processed and got my passport due to this "job offer"
First job in a logistics and remittance company as Creative Writer, and later on, Marketing Assistant

2011
Learned Photoshop during lunchtime because I said I know how to use Photoshop during a job interview earlier that day
Second job in a real retate industry as Marketing Staff but I mostly did layouting and copywriting of flyers/brochures, liked it
Third job in a mobile/electronics industry as Marketing Staff, and later on, Marketing Associate Traveled to Singapore, 2d/1n only, first outside of the country solo trip with an intention of just sleeping at the airport during that 1n

2011-2014
Traveled to Thailand
Fourth job in an automotive industry as Planning and Sales Promotions Specialist, pay was goooood!

2015-2017
Traveled to Vietnam, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan

2018
Resigned from corporate world
Traveled to New Zealand

Currently, Finding, searching, and discovering purpose and meaning of life. Or my life!

Now, I'm working/planning on getting back to NZ. A.S.A.P.

Btw, I'm also on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Google+. Also on Pinterest even though I only have little idea how it works!

Cheers,
Rice
