The Year That Was

This will be my last post for the year. I can't believe how fast time flies. Was 2012 a good year for you? I certainly have no complaints.

Allow me to reflect on the highlights of 2012:

#1 Decided to join the blogosphere
#2 Gave ang pows during Chinese New Year for the first time
#3 Travelled rather extensively. Made trips to Singapore, East Malaysia, London, Paris, Scotland, Beijing, Bali and Boracay
#4 Got promoted at work
#5 Got a new laptop at work (thank goodness!)
#6 Made the switch to iPhone 4S and lovin' it
#7 Witnessed live the crowning of our Miss Universe Malaysia 2013
#8 Spoke on radio although it was a white lie (thank you Pam, for making me do it)
#9 The end-of-the-world saga didn't happen
#10 Celebrated our one-year wedding anniversary

Alwin and I decided to head to Fatboys at Publika to have an early burger dinner before going home to accompany the TV and DVD player. Savages was on our minds, rather than crowded places. It was simple and nice - just the two of us. And then he gave me the one thing that every girl's crazy about - the lil' blue Tiffany box! In it nestled a pretty charm bracelet. He knows me only too well... So yes, it is the perfect ending to the year for me.

Alwin's anniversary gift for me :)

And mine to him - it was just a card I got from London
To end this post on a high note, I have a lovely poem to share, written by Joanna Fuchs.

New Year's Reflections
Looking back on the months gone by,
As a new year starts and an old one ends,
We contemplate what brought us joy,
And we think of our loved ones and our friends.
Recalling all the happy times,
Remembering how they enriched our lives,
We reflect upon who really counts,
As the fresh and bright new year arrives.

And when I ponder those who do,
I immediately think of you.

Thanks for being one of the reasons I'll have a Happy New Year!

Here's wishing all of you a Happy New Year and may 2013 be another superb year for us all!
