Before everyone gets busy preparing for tonight, I want to greet everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR! 😀 Wishing everyone a prosperous year ahead! 😀

I can’t believe 2011 is about to end. Looking back, I have sooo many things to be thankful for. It was actually a great year for me that I wish it didn’t have to end just yet.

It was this year when I finally pursued my makeup career. Now, I can’t believe I’m doing makeup to clients and I have my own train case full of makeup already. Oh, the feeling of fulfillment… 😀


My feet also brought me to a lot of places this year. It’s only now I realized that I flew in and out of the country almost every month for 2011, most of it for family vacation. I love the fact that I was able to put new check marks on my must-go list. 😀 Being able to explore something new is always a bliss. 😀 But for my most memorable trip this year? Japan would have to be number 1 because of my earthquake/ tsunami experience. My Euro trip comes second. It has always been my dream to visit Spain. Finally, I was able to make a way to pass by Madrid and Barcelona in this trip. And of course, I can never forget my first travel with the bloggers to Malaysia. To attend a bloggers event out of the country is indeed a dream come true (again, thank you to my Nuffnang family). Having to meet bloggers that I just used to see online and gaining true friendships through that trip made those 4 days truly memorable. My travel urges were definitely satisfied for 2011! 😀


It was also this year when I got several projects abroad- something really unexpected. Never ever have I imagined to be in this industry. It’s something I never tried and something I don’t really like ever since. I only tried once as a favor to my friend. It was indeed surprising that I got the part. I enjoyed doing that first project last year, but I never thought I would be showered with more this year. Added to the perks are my free travels that’s more than enough to satisfy the travel junkie in me. Honestly, I’m so overwhelmed that I can’t thank the Lord enough! 😀


I’ve also gained a lot of friends through my trips and through blogging! 😀 All the people I met through out the year made my 2011 a really memorable one.


It was also a healthy year for my family and friends. Literally, healthy- no illnesses, which I thank the Lord so much! 😀

And of course, I want to express my warmest thanks to all of you who have been so patient reading my blog. LOL! Happy is an understatement to describe how I feel when someone sends me a message or approaches me that she has been reading my blog. I hope I’ve touched your lives in my own little way. 😀 Thank you so much! 😀

2011 is definitely my year and I’m owning it! Haha! But, all these great things wouldn’t be possible without the people around me- family, friends, and all of you guys, and of course, God. THANK YOU! 😀 As much as I don’t want to end the year, I’ll have to be ready with 2012. So, bring it on! 😀

Cheers to 2011! 😀 Cheers for a great year ahead! 😀
