Thank The Old, Greet The New

It’s the tip of 2012, and here we are evaluating and rewinding back what this year has done and brought to us. 366 days have passed so very quickly that sometimes catching up with daily happenings in life is too much of a task.. You know how if you live each day with such great friends and happy thoughts the time passed in a flash? Me think so too.

Now that the fireworks and my blackberry broadcast messages are competing against each other, I would like to try to sum up what 2012 was about for moi.

Incredibly Grateful. is probably the most apt phrase to begin with the journey to the awesomeness of 2012. To start off, I am on my happiest days of my life right now. I’m as content as I can be, without anything to worry about (except for the slight setback regarding my school visa /sigh). But anyhow, if you refer back to the previous posts from this blog, I recorded mostly good things that has happened during the last 12 months. Whether it was foods, friends, concerts, and probably a little bit of setbacks that is inevitable.

I was able to watch not one, not two, not three, but four concerts this year. Which in one of it, I made precious new friends and memorable experience. Was also the year when I first shed tears on a concert. :)

In the rare opportunity of browsing, I found the way to live in Love  through the dailylove.com and tut.com and whole heaps of self motivate books. I love the sense of renewal living in positive brought you to. That’s one thing I’m taking to ’13 with me.

Being fortunate enough to go for Easter holiday and stepped my foot on Europe soil. Forever will remember the 3 weeks long holiday to lavish in all picture perfect sceneries.

Completed one chapter of my life by finishing internship in SingExpress Travel for one year. Truly a wonderful adventure with all it’s challenges and rewards.

Finally permed my hair on November, after all this time.

Entered the big Two this year, proudfully so.

Managed to find the way to continue my study, though it’s kind of hard to say I’m ready to go.. More on other time.

Friends. Girlfriends. Mom. Dad. Sachi & Michi. They are such a bless to be around. Mood lifter and ultimate source of joy.

Those are probably some quick round up of what’s really significant in the year. So many things I haven’t jolt down in my notes so I’m probably missing out heaps. :/ In essence, there’s a whole lot of thing to be thankful for. I’m thankful for the good and bad things that happens during this fruitful year. And I finally learn that on every day of the 366 days I open my eyes from my dream, there’s always, always, and always something to be grateful for. :)

Now, I’m home and comfortable in my bed, typing my little thoughts away tonight. I might not be able to see fireworks to start off my 2013, but it doesn’t mean my year is gonna be any less awesome! Set your mindset and look straight ahead! In a matter of minutes it’s going to be a fresh start, a fresh calendar, a fresh canvas for you to sketch whatever adventures you wish to have. :) It’s a new year!

Talk to you next year! :)

 

 

Belated Happy 2012!

HAPPY 2 0 1 2 !

If 3rd January is not too late to post about new year, I would like to reminisce what 2011 meant to me, and about where i hang my hopes up for 2012.

It has been one thrilling year. One round year of living abroad in Singapore, away from everything familiar and friendly, and I am proud to say I have no regrets for this year. Well at least i can’t think of one. In fact it has been such a meaningful year, where I:

-Got to see my favorite band’s concert,

– Attended brother’s wedding,

-Moving house with own effort,

-Met some really great friends who I grew very close to,

-Learning heaps of knowledge from the ongoing internship,

-Had an almost full piggy bank,

-Finally able to produce some penny on my own,

-Watched some really good titles of movies,

-Grew closer to Daddy,

-Adopted two puppies,

-Had a lot of me-time the past 3 months,

-Learnt to swim,

-Finished diploma classroom course,

-Had super fun on new year’s eve,

-and lots of other things my sleepy brain cannot comprehend at this moment.

Particularly, daily life in 2011 is monotone, until September where internship started. I think internship helps me to value time in a whole new perspective. Imagine having only 25 percent of free time in one week, compared to easy-go-movie type of life during classroom days. But it’s totally fine now, we all get used to new things eventually. Although if you ask me to choose between classroom or workplace, I absent-mindedly will go for classroom. Ha!

There goes the 2011. Thanks for the great memories!

2012:

-save more money,

-exercise more,

-shop very very wisely,

-cook more,

-eat often at home,

-tell mum i love her every day,

-virtual kiss/hug dad from skype often,

-continue bachelor degree,

-go to park/garden/beach for me-time,

-donate more,

-visit temple often,

-meet new friends,

-donate some of unused clothes,

-lose xx kgs,

-travel somewhere alone,

-etc.

ps; above are not resolutions. It will serve merely as a reminder of things i would like to do this year. I don’t like the pressure of having resolutions to complete. :\

15 balloons for 15 wish-to-do.

-Happy New Year, people!
