Waw, I cant believe 2015 is coming to an end in a blink of an eye! I’m not sure if it’s just me or time moves slowly when we were kids but it moves like a rocket when we are adults. I remember when I was young I kept telling myself please grow up faster because. Right now, I’m all grown up and married, I would prefer that my time move slower hahaha
Usually most people like to blog about their new year resolutions but I think I prefer to look back in time and see what I have achieved in 2015.
Lets begin, shall we?
Those who have been following me should know that my resolution for 2014 was to pick up fitness and get as toned as I can. Surprisingly, i always thought getting lean is one of the hardest new year resolutions but I did it! I can proudly say that I’m more fit and healthier than in 2014. I have been going to the gym non-stop and keep pushing myself harder each day. I’m so glad that I did because I’m more confident and happy now.
We also moved into our new place in 2015! It was like a dream because I have been waiting for this day to come since 3 years ago. Sometimes when I’m home sitting on the sofa chilling I think to myself I still cant believe we finally get our own living room, own kitchen and most of all our own private space.
The whole renovation process was pretty fun and exciting for us because we came out with the whole idea and concept of our house by ourselves. We are so glad that we decided to do it ourselves instead as we learned so much throughout the process. I learned that things dont come together easily, and we need a lot of effort and patience. We starting moving in when our house was pretty empty, we didn’t have enough storage, no pretty rugs or deco to cozy up the whole house but we told ourselves, slowly but surely! With a limited budget we tried to get whatever we needed first then leave the “wants” aside. Each month we slowly brought more pieces home, like Lego, one at a time so that we dont overspend =)
Thanks to those who made it happen, you know who you are =)
In 2015, I also get to cook more often because I get my own kitchen =) My favorite thing to do now is to plan what to cook for our dinner. I enjoy going to the grocery or market with Jo to get ingredients and all. A few people ask me “why do u enjoy cooking so much?” I dont know le I just love it. Besides that I also manage to influence Jo to cook =) so sometimes I get to goyang kaki and watch Game of Thrones while he is cooking! #perfectplan.
By the way, Im working on a project (Vlog) for 2016 where cooking will be involved so please let me know what sort of recipes you would like me to share with you guys! I’ll be more than happy to share it with u guys!
My beloved sister finally got married, and the reason why I say finally is because they signed the papers 2 years ago and kept delaying the wedding ==” My parents were like pls get it done and over with hahahaha. So they chose their dates and my sister was like ” Bobo u will be incharge of the wedding decoration!” I was super excited about it because I always wanted to experience how is it like to be a wedding planner! Thanks to my sister I got a good opportunity to do it. What i did was i asked for her fav color and Pinterest the shit out of every thing, from the table center piece to dessert table. I had lots of fun planning it and I cant believe that everything turned out to be perfect! The wedding was a success and it was like a dream for her =) I also learnt that it’s not easy to work as a wedding planner, it’s super tiring and exhausting especially when u have to do the deco and labor work yourselves T_T.
In 2015, I also got the opportunity to explore more countries that I have never been to such as Australia and Bali (Indonesia)! I also got to revisit places that I have been to like Phuket, Taiwan and Bangkok! I went to Queensland, Aus together with Citygal for #Escapers2015 and we won 3rd place! The prize was complimentary stay at Sofitel Bali so we brought along the boys with us as a couples trip! It was super fun and relaxing because all we did was stay in the resort and get tanned.
For my 30th birthday, we planned a mini getaway to Phuket just the two of us and we stayed in a gorgeous 1 bedroom villa at Pullman. It was the most relaxing and awesome getaway ever, all we did was eat, sleep and get tanned as well hehe.
Now that i have listed them out, I’m reminded on how lucky I am to be able to travel to so many countries in 2015. I’m so thankful for all the opportunities and sponsors =). I wish that I get to travel to more countries in 2016 together with Jo.
In 2015, I met a lot of amazing people especially my fellow Taitais, and it started off with just the 3 of us but now we have 5! We call ourselves #Competitiveaunties because we are but in a good way la. The first outing with the aunties was fun and filled with laughter! Whenever we are out for dinner we just wont stop talking until we realize it’s too late then we will go ahead and plan our next gathering and it goes on and on. It’s always good to have a group of people who are in the same stage of life and everyone gets to share their stories. Our 2016 plan is to plan a getaway with the aunties! Beware ah because aunties out to play and u know how wild they are lol.
That pretty much sums up my 2015 and I’m looking forward to see what 2016 can offer!
Happy New Year everyone, may 2016 give you more wealth and good health!
