Welcoming 2013


Time flies. Before I know it, 2012 is coming to an end. What a great year it has been.

I'm extremely thankful for my family and their continuing support and encouragement. Dear friends who have been with me through thick and thin, I'm forever grateful. You know who you are. It's also the year that saw myself grow professionally - received a promotion and was given new responsibilities. As frustrated I am with work (many banging head against the wall moments), I know I'm blessed for being given the opportunity to learn and develop in areas which will no doubt benefit me in the future.

Additionally I was fortunate enough to be able to continue pursuing my passion of traveling, albeit part time now with full time work. I had fun, adventure-filled trips to Malaysia, Snowy Mountains (Jindabyne), Whitsundays, Melbourne, Taiwan, Hong Kong throughout the year and look forward to more trips next year.

Here's hoping that 2013 will be an amazing year and my New Year resolutions will be fulfilled...fingers-crossed.

I will be taking the week off from blogging so it will be 2013 when I next post. I started my little blog not too long ago as a hobby and I'm touched that you decided to stop by to have a little look at it. Thank you. Your comments really do make my day! I look forward to blogging more in the new year.

Whether you are out celebrating or having a private party at home, I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year. Have fun and stay safe.

Happy New Year to you too, Jo!

Good luck with your resolutions, many of them sound like fun, especially the traveling :)

I feel relieved to know that I'm not the only adult I know without driving license!

Happy New Year! It sounds like 2012 was a really eventful year for you (by my standards, at least!) and if all goes according to your plans, 2013 will be even more exciting. I'll be keeping up with you and no doubt living vicariously through you now, since I'm sure I'll be getting back to work and won't be able to travel as much (Australia seems to have a fantastic "annual leave" policy, whereas we have no such thing here in the U.S.!). Such a Catch-22, to work to make money to travel, but not have the time to travel! Happy 2013 :)

I want to travel more too - I need to learn to drive this year, travel more, save more money....

Happy 2013!
