I am not one that makes resolutions for the New Year nor keep to it so I gave up writing one altogether. Hehee BUT I have A LOT to be thankful for in the year of 2013. It has been an amazing ride and I am gona miss it dearly. I believe 2014 will be as good or if not, better!! *crossed fingers*
2013 ish traveling year; a few trips to Legoland Malaysia, Montigo Resorts, twice to Bangkok, Seoul and Penang! I am so grateful and thankful for the unforgettable experiences and beautiful memories. I have learned a lot, made new friends and strengthen bonds between close friends.
Thankful to all my very supportive and lovely readers, the amazing people I have met through blogging, the generous sponsors that I’ve worked with and the awesome PR agencies who gave me loads of opportunities. THANK YOU so much from the bottom of my heart. I LOVE blogging and will continue to keep this passion going. I blog for passion/hobby, not for fame nor freebies.
This mid-December my mother inlaw had a bad fall while holidaying in China and broke her hips and thigh bones. She has to undergo painful operation and be hospitalised for the next 5-6 weeks undergoing physiotherapy. She has to rely on wheelchair a lot in the future but we are thankful she is recovering and hope she will be able to walk in no time. If I were to say this period of time wasn’t stressful, I would be lying. I can’t say I’m not worried what is gona happen after therapy but I will be strong for my family. We are deeply touched by many of your love and well wishes.
Along with all the happiness and gratefulness I have for 2013, I also had my fair share of downs and stumbles. I doubt myself from time to time, went into my hermit mode and met scary poker-facing friends whom pretended to care, only to drown me with their many dramas and negativities. Just like every other human being who has feelings, I am often hurt and greatly affected but I also believed in Karma. I don’t believe in cursing or wishing the worse for anyone for I believe ‘everything in its time’ and one day all will be revealed. If there is anything I am certain of, I make an excellent friend and will be there for you anytime you need me. You have to earn my trust and not humour me with words.
