11 months gone by

By the good old days I actually mean those times when it was less stressful, less dramatic, and fewer responsibilities. I was looking through my old Xanga blog for an old photo of my gown for Angie the other day because she wanted to see what I will be wearing for this coming blog awards but I couldn't find it. Instead, I was a little saddened because back then, I could just scribble without any care in the world, my personal thoughts, my student life, experiences, and nonsense without being judged. Wait, that's not entirely true though there was once I had a blog entry dedicated to me by a hater. But anyway, all's good now heh.



Good news though, I can still fit in that same gown I wore in my first uni prom in 2007! *woohoo!*


To my surprise, I have been blogging for a good 4 years now (since 2007). Reading back gives me mixed feelings because all these notes, they keep my memories alive..in a good but weird way. I can't explain.

So it's that time of the year again when we look back and reflect on the past 11 months, the good and bad, the days that have gone awfully wrong and series of events that made our days.


A recap of my eleven months gone by.Are you ready?


PS. Thank God I created folders by months yeehar! It's a lot easier.



Here we go..
In..


#January


 After two years of traveling to Bangkok during each new year celebration, we finally celebrated Chinese New Year in our new home. The open house, market shopping, ang pow collection was tons of fun! and not forgetting all the cleaning up and mess after! =P


Then came

# February


 The month of love.


Shaz and I painted this at an art house in Empire.

We also celebrated our 3rd year anniversary this year.

 
#then
#now

 I HAVE TO add this in don't care! My first time making chocolate and oreo truffles, it was a success! Brought a lot to the office and gave some to my friends, glad they loved it.

It was also the month when I felt really..extremely--EXTREMELY SHORT -__-"

It grew better in March.

#March


It has also been more than a year of working with Nom Nom Media and I have attended my fair share of concerts ever since I started working.

But that didn't stop me!

 Bruno Mars live in KL! <3

My tweets were featured in Junk Online and I saw Bruno Mars live at the PWTC's indoor stadium. 
He's got an awesome voice.



Definitely one of the great things this year.


 Also met the most influential blogger, Xiaxue for the very first time.

at a bloggers' gathering at Frames, Sunway Pyramid.

It gets better.

Then I went on my first ever sponsored trip with Jayne to the country's largest and exclusive log resort, Philea Resort and Spa off Ayer Keroh, Malacca.





Ahh, that was pampering *reminisce*

I did a lot more traveling after that.



#April



We disappeared into...the.........Lost World of Tambun!
