2014 saw me started on a different routine where my kids and family became my sole priority. Work wise, workload increased significantly ^.^ Blogging took a backseat. Really really backseat and I missed joining my fellow bloggers. Anyway, here are my highlights for the Year 2014.
I welcomed with 2014 by taking a deep breath and walked right into the New Year!
Had lovely gatherings with family and friends during CNY. As with the start of any New Year, it’s all about gatherings, celebrations and F.O.O.D!!
Started March with sad news of the still missing MH370 enroute to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur.
Few weeks later, accompanied my MIL to visit her hometown in China. Visited the county where we usually buy our Mandarin Oranges from, the Yong Chun county and also visited Xiamen.
April was pretty quiet. There was a Business Trip to Singapore. Met up with my SIL and had a lovely dinner at Boat Quay.
Went for fine dining with the hubs, just the two of us at Lafite, Shangri-la. It was awesome!
Also had a 3-in-1 celebration for Mother’s Day, Brother’s Birthday and mine at home.
Packed in a holiday with friends to Bangkok and visited Hua Hin as well admist the political situation in Bangkok.
Went for another Business Trip, this time to Europe! Unexpected and unplanned. “Dragged” hubs along and make full used of the entire trip. Visited Munich (day trip). Took the rail from Nuremberg, Germany. A great experience!… After my conference was over, we extended and holiday-ed at Amsterdam. My dream came true to see and walk inside a working windmill <3 <3
The month where another Malaysian airplane was reported to be shot downed over war-striken Ukraine. Another very sad month and I count my blessings for I was on the same route from Europe to Malaysia just two weeks before this incident took place.
Had a sneak peek at my boy’s concert costume when his kindy posted in FB
My baby turns 5 this month.
We also went down South to attend my bff’s ROM.
Went for a break with my family and release turtle for the first time.
Took part in my boy’s school charity walk/run as a family. Glad to report we all made it to the finish line
Cavan turns 9 this month.
Had a good Christmas celebration with friends over lunch.
Anticipating New Year when we were hit with the news of another airplane went missing. This time is Air Asia’s. Search and recovery is still on-going as we stepped into the new year.
It has been a really bittersweet year for me. Extremely bad for my country with 3 airplanes disaster, floods etc.. Personally it has been a rather fulfilling year especially with my travels abroad and within Malaysia.
I’m keeping lovely memories with me as I stepped into the New Year and hope that the New Year will bring move positive news and impact into our lives and nation.
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015!!
