I know I had neglected my blog again. It had been a long while since I blogged 🙁
It’s the first entry of year 2015!! Happy New Year! This year we went to a friend’s place to welcome the new year. Guess how we spent the 1st minute of the new year? Of course, we drank champagne! So as the saying goes or rather the Amanda’s theory – “If you spent the first minute of the new year drinking champagne, you will be drinking champagne for the rest of the year!!” May this be a prophecy for all who still reads my blog!!! *cheers!!*
2014 had gone by in a flash. Let me try to recall some highlights-
The first 2.5 months of 2014 was spent in Singapore. Little would i know that this will be the LAST long vacation I will have for a long long time. I had an enjoyable time with family and friends. BH and I finally spent CNY in Singapore and gave out angbaos for the first time since we are married!! We also redeemed our expiring Krisflyer miles and traveled to Bali in Business Class! I love our Bali vacation so much.. probably the best vacation ever!!
We returned to Seattle and decided that we can no longer stay in the crappy apartment.We found a fabulous new community to move to. The rent is expensive but we decided that we wanted to enjoy our lives and save on other areas, so we moved. I think God had planned for this all along. After committing ourselves to the new apartment lease, we received good news of our PR status. This means that I can work and help out with saving more! The fear of increased rent was uncalled for! Just when I thought looking for a job will take me a long time…. someone sent an email within the Singaporean Meetup group, saying that his firm have a job vacancy. I applied and started working the next week! This is the reason why I can no longer go back to Singapore for long vacation already. By the way, that was the first resume I sent!!! (I am still working for him now.. my boss is by far the BEST I have ever had!)
Hosted Keurig Houseparty – I received a Keurig coffee maker for free!!! so happy to get selected!
Stopped volunteering to focus on my new job. Other than that, I can’t recall anything much
Trip to Napa Valley!! The first trip we took since I started working!
Bing and I discovered that our apartment have 2 fancy grills. We were like grilling steaks every 2 weeks! so delicious!
We also went to Seattle Sounders game with friends.
We finally took our post wedding pictures! The pictures turned out great!! Happy that I have 1 thing off my bucket list! 🙂
We also went on a trip to Alaska with Dave and Jo!! Travelling together was so much fun- we will remember this adventure for life!
Happy 6th wedding anniversary to us! BH was busy with work but he still spend time to create an album with our photos!
Nothing exciting? Bing was working alot
Also nothing worth mentioning…
Went for Health check and was told that I have high cholesterol!! It is amazing how much I neglected my health when I start working 🙁
Our vacation to Cancun, Mexico!! Such a relaxing trip!! I really love the all inclusive resort experience!!!
I guess that sums up my year in 2014!
In 2015, I will
1) go to work on time and leave work on time everyday
2) go to the gym or zumba at least 2 times a week
3) blog at least once a week
4) study hard to get my paraplanning certification
Just like last year, I hope that more good things will come our way and that our family&friends will stay healthy and happy!
Happy New Year! 🙂
