About

I’m an ordinary woman set on getting the most I can out of this life. Yeah, who says we can’t have it all? Scratch that, I’m not ordinary. I’m unique, as I believe we each are. Variety is the spice of life, right? Life is a big winding journey, and along the way I like writing about whatever wills itself to the tips of my fingers.

I love biology, medicines and all that other (fun!) stuff about preserving life so I went to med school. No, not to be a medical doctor. I’m a pharmacist. Also, I love fashion so I’m a model as well. I prefer runway modeling.

I’ve always loved writing, ergo the blogging. When I first started blogging over at Blogger I thought I’d write about fashion and all things fun and light, for a target audience, namely my contemporaries. That changed along the way. My blog is now a conduit for me to express myself, and think out loud. I think it, I write it. Since my mind is always wandering about, I find myself writing about anything and almost everything.

The Eclectic LadyBird. I feel the name fits me well. I’m not one one to put myself in a box. Even if I tried, I’d fail, I’m sure. My interests in just about everything are… yes, eclectic! I’m still trying to figure out if I’m Type A or Type B personality, although I think I’m mostly A. No, forget it, I’m not sure. And that’s just fine by me. The LadyBird part has nothing to do with beetles, I promise you, and more to do with lady and chic. Chic as in you look chic, not chic as in chick. But yes, LadyBird. That actually makes me laugh a little at myself. Please don’t ask how I came to the name, I just did. It sort of fell into my brain, and fit perfectly. So the Eclectic LadyBird, I am. For now, at least. Hopefully I won’t outgrow the name anytime soon. That happened with my last blog name. Don’t ask.

A little more about this Eclectic LadyBird: Ugandan, born and bred. Love travelling but afraid of winter. I abhor the cold, I’m a girl of the tropics. My taste in music is (yes, you guessed it!) eclectic, but I think South African music is pretty awesome. It is so full of soul. Maybe that’s why I could never get enough of the Whoopi Goldberg movie on apartheid, Sarafina. Once upon a time I could recite every line in that movie. No I’m not South African. East African, Ugandan, like I said.

If I had to choose a flavour it would be ginger, if I were a flavour it would be banana. If it’s ice cream give me pistachio any day, or that Indian flavour – kulfi.

    cheers, sis :)

  3. I admire you. Pharmacy is a difficult place to work in, I know because I work in a hospital pharmacy in Singapore. It’s one of the toughest courses in university here.

    Also, your a model. :)

    Beauty and brains, what I always wanted!:))

    • Thank you, clumsyninja :) very sweet of you to say so.

      Glad to know we have pharmacy in common. It’s one of the toughest courses in uni here too. I’ve been by your pages, I like your writing. Thank you for coming by, see you again soon! :)

  4. Pharmacy, Hmm. Another path I didn’t get to complete. Too Many sparklys in my life over the years. I did run dug stores for several years though so I am well aware of what you have to go thru.
    Are you aware that we in the US had a past First Lady named LadyBird?

    • I do, actually. I only found out after I named my blog so. Googled the blog name and the first lady’s turned up too. I understand she changed the face of First Lady-ship, in a way.

      I’ve worked in drug shop settings and enjoyed it , though I think I lean more towards hospital practice. Looking to see what the future holds in that area.

  9. Thanks for finding me, I’m pretty eclectic as well! You’re dead gorgeous, so I can see why you model (if that’s your sister, she could, too). I don’t blog with a target audience – I have a lot of cat-people and some writers and some dog people and some photographers and some artists… And some like me who don’t fit a category. I think you’re a category-free person, too :)

    • Yes, I’m a category-free person as well. Mostly I just seek to enjoy reading what’s out there, and to write about this and that, get some discipline and focus for my ever growing writerly dreams. Thanks for dropping in, hope to see more of you :)

    • Thank you too, Daniela. I enjoyed your blog, and identify with what you wrote writing in English for non-native English speakers. Sometimes the English just isn’t adequate.

      See you soon at your pages.
      Kat :)
