Gone too long
Taipau 11:44 AMIt's 2017.
8 years since my first blog post was made, went back to look at my entries in the early days and it was cringe worthy but interesting to see how I grew from those days to who I am now.
3 years since i last actively blogged with only 5 entries last year. They say blogs are dead but I beg to defer, the quality and content of blogging has changed, to be more directed towards a certain cause or motive. They became news sites or content hubs.
I am not gonna say that I am back to be a consistent blogger as well but I reckon I need a space where I can write out my thoughts and share some of the things that I experience in life be it good or bad.
2016 was a trashy year for me, it was mundane with the occasional lows and nothing exciting. I might be plunging into the stagnant side of adulthood but I am self-aware enough to keep myself afloat.
So 2017 will be the year where I try to keep this blog alive and the plan was to have a quick makeover of the blog layout to keep it even more simple plus sharing my thoughts on things such as Anime, Kpop and Esports as these are the things that make up my life and I love them to bits.
Biggest highlight up till now
As many of you know, I am a big fan of Dota 2 and gaming. I gave up on the game back when Dota 2 was released mainly because I didn't have the right tools to continue the game on a higher spec but got back into the game 2.5 years ago, played it on my free time at that point in time but it sort of escalated last year as I delved into the wonders of the Esports Industry and it definitely helps when you find a few people who are just as interested as you are.
So to K.I.S.S. it, I attended my first official LAN Tournament for Dota 2 as a spectator and the experiencewas absolutely amazing!
Got to meet some of the Dota 2 personalities, my personal favourite Slacks and Purge the comedic and intelligent duo.
The crowd was absolutely amazing as the tournament was held up in the chilly Genting Highlands, the set up was great and the people were just as passionate as I which was probably the main contributor to the experience.
Picture above was taken Sunday night 1am, full house and all cheering for the last game.
I really hope the scene continues to grow and I do hope that one day I would be able to be working within the scene and continue the passion for Esports.
That's all for now.
A good step moving forward to get the blog back up on track. :)
In future I am thinking of sharing more personal reviews of shows, games and music events.
