I am thankful and grateful.
MiddleMe is now 6 months old. With more than 600 followers, increasing everyday.
Many of you have given me strength and encouragement to continue with what I am doing with MiddleMe. Your comments, your words have been deeply appreciated and impacted me every single day. To write is my passion, to talk about careers and helping people realising theirs is my passion and to further confirmed that I am heading towards the right direction by you all… Thank You!
I would love to take this opportunity to specially thank those who did collaborations with me in the past few months.
Look out for more collaborations and interviews from all walk of life in the future updates. If you are holding a job I have not featured in MiddleMe, please feel free to drop me an email at kally@MiddleMe.net. It will be nothing but fun, imaginary muffins and tea.
Talking about collaborations, I have been extremely busy in December so some of you might have missed me around replying to your comments on time. I am working on a major extension on MiddleMe. As a lot of us are aware, China blocks out blogs, Twitter, FaceBook and YouTube. One of the many blog platforms that China blocks out is WordPress. Now, we know that we can always use VPN to circumvent and bypass this annoyance, however, not many local Chinese would be aware of such services. Even they are aware, English is not their native language. I wanted to overcome this and bring MiddleMe to a higher ground and hopefully, a wider audience that would benefit from my articles.
I am proud to say MiddleMe is now on WeChat (a mobile platform that serves mainly the Chinese in China), officially launched today! The articles will be translated from English to Chinese using only direct human translation and articles ‘push’ through via WeChat to its subscribers on the platform. If you are on WeChat and you would like your article in Chinese instead of English, you may join by scanning the below QR Code using your WeChat.
China itself have 1.3 billion of people and growing everyday. Many of which requires career advice and MiddleMe is gear up towards helping them. All articles (inclusive of interviews, collaborations and guest posts, excluding comments) will be translated with care in Chinese (unless it loses its meaning, then it will be published in original form) to reach out to more needy readers.

I am also excited about WeChat’s performance. It’s soft launch was at 9pm 6 January 2016 SGT, 12 hours later we have received 27 followers! It is projected to have double the amount of followers within 24 hours.
Meanwhile, MiddleMe.net will still be my main focus so you can stop holding your breath. I am always looking for ways to improve MiddleMe so any suggestions would be greatly welcome.
Besides the WeChat project, someone walked into my life on a December Sunday afternoon. How a stray kitten of 6 months old, climbed 3 floors up and managed to strut into our home puzzled me. So everytime I tried to get near my laptop, I have to fight hard for my space because Sunny loves to curl up on top of my laptop like most cats do. I have been spending time to cat proof my house, sending him to the vet, buying his litter etc. So yes, he has taken over the house and my heart by his meows.
How can your heart not melt at this face?
