Reignited Love for Pole

This trip to Hong Kong was more than just supporting brother Adam… (who took home the Pole Fit Champion title by the way! JJJYYEEAAAHHH!)

… I ain’t sure if it’s normal but I kinda fell off the bandwagon in pole training, hugely due to loss of that drive to push myself anymore…

… until I was back where I started…as a student…

and it HIT…

“When you feel like giving up, remember why you held on for so long in the first place”

…. Thanks Zane Gan’s tattoo šŸ˜‰

Taking the pole workshops organized by the IPC 2012 committee was one of the best decisions I made…being able to have a chat with some of the world’s most famous pole athletes, especially Natasha Wang reminded me that though this s*** ain’t easy, it’s still possible and it’s all about how much you want it…I feel that LOLA…is kinda back

… driven and ready for What’s Next šŸ™‚

In the mean time, here are some photos from the few days stretch of workshops held at IPC studio partners Aerial Arts Academy and Fitness Compass in Hong Kong.

I've been told that I'm tiny but tough, so I must have gotten SOME things right. On the inside, I feel like a mushy marshmellow who's a hopeless romantic and find corny cute. Writing "About Me" sections had evolved in the past x years of online profiles, currently, it sits at me still hungry for enlightening experiences and insightful traveling, particularly with human connections. My story at full length on the "About" page :) Thank you for poking around!
