About The Blogger

My name is Tammy Lim and I am an award winning blogger from Top 10 Malaysia Magazine and Cleo Malaysia Magazine. I have been blogging since 2008 and I am also the founder of a local Malaysian beauty & lifestyle community called The Butterfly Project. People often tell me that I'm a wonder woman, but in reality - if it's something you love, you can do wonders.

When I'm not wondering, I'll be on my computer searching for the next fountain of youth or hunting down a fantastic deal. I'm also a shopaholic, wanderluster, spa enthusiast and proud hipster who loves planning special occasions and surprises for her loved ones.

    I cried when I read her message

    My weekend was packed as usual but I promised Kiersten I would see her for dinner, drinks and catch up with each other. When we got to my favourite bar, she whipped out a tiny white bag out from her Prada handbag and said "I got you this, just because". WHAT? Just because? do people buy gifts just because these days? I kinda shrieked back at her. She knew my obsession with Pandora (blog stalker) and had been wanting to give me something for my birthday. Being quite the OCD, she had to do her research and visit the Pandora outlet until she was satisfied with the one charm that would take my breath away and give meaning to my life.

    AND I was forced by her strong domineering "charisma" to open my gift then and there, with her phone ready to snap photographs of my expression (hence the series of OMG you see above) credit to Kiersten of course. When I saw her gift, I was laughing hysterically. The card the came with it, had a illustration of a geeky glass (so me) and on it she wrote my instagram name @hellotammylim. It was just so touching, and as I read her message, I cried. 

    Dearest Tammy,

    Forget everything & remember this : You are a star!
    Forget about him who broke your heart: You deserve a lot better!
    Forget about the hurt & trauma: you will heal & be stronger!
    Forget about the tears: at least they cleansed your soul!
    You are alive. You survived. You choose. Choose to live. Run Fly Wildly. Begin again.
    And begin to feel alive.
    Stir the storm with rainbows, the pleasure with the pain.
    Forget the old. Sprinkle in new.
    Stardust. Magic. Wanderlust. Mystery. Moonlit skies. Deserts. Sparkle. Dance. Have faith. Be free.
    Remember: You are a star!


    a meaningful gift with a message

    Thank you Kiersten, for being a friend, a sister, and my pillar of strength. Your life story and experiences has given me courage and hope that life after what it is, would be beautiful. I wish you all the best with your future knight in shining armour and that I would miss you terribly when you're not around to tell me to buckle up and smile. I love the charm you picked out, it did take my breath away and I will always see to it when I need a reminder that I am a star.
