Flashbacks and Highlights of 2012

by xin on December 18, 2012

In 2010, I did a flashback and reading it again made me realize how old I have grown.

In 2011, I have forgotten to do one and I am beating myself up now for forgetting it!

So for 2012, I am not missing out this time πŸ˜€

1. In 2011, the itchy hands developed some hobbies and create Cute Little Craft. It’s a tiny site selling accessories. Updates are depending on inspiration.

2. I discovered magnetic polish and had some fun. However, the fun was short-lived. I just couldn’t sustain the passion.

3. We visited Hong Kong for the first time and had loads of fun, and food. I had always wanted to visit HK but never got around to realize it until we made it impromptu! Planning long ahead isn’t really my thing.


4.Β  I splurged almost RM900 on innerwear and that was the biggest damage to date on bras.


5. We had a little family weekend and visited Malacca. As we grow older and more occupied, hanging out with parents and siblings altogether seem like a little luxury.

6. Picked up cycling last year, decided to bite the bullet and buy a proper bike, which broke my bank (or my dad’s).Β  Until today I still cycle during the weekends when it’s not raining. My stamina has improved quite significantly, but unfortunately cycling is the only exercise that I like.

7. Started taking health supplements diligently and feeling healthier.

8.Β  Had another impromptu trip to celebrate hubby’s birthday in Phuket. It was meant to be a surprise for him but I couldn’t contain the excitement so I had to tell him. Had a blast of time relaxing and doing nothing, and regained positive chi!

Laduree Rose Blush

9. Bought the most expensive blusher of my life – Face Color Rose LadurΓ©e. And I have a feeling that it will always be a record holder on my list.

World Vision

10. I joined World Vision and signed up for a sponsorship for a child. If you have never heard of World Vision before, it’s an international organization that helps mostly the third world countries (the hardcore poor villages).

The main purpose is to help the locals to build a community, ie clean water, education, basic healthcare and living skills.Β  It will be a monthly commitment for 10-15 years. It’s not a huge monthly amount, but I hope my little help counts.Β  I have been wanting to do it for a long time, but I finally did it! Counting the blessings that I have, it’s time to give!

That’s about all the ‘exciting’ moments I had in 2012…what’s your most memorable moment of 2012?

Looks like you had fun! It’s always fun to look back at the year gone by πŸ˜‰ Like PB said, good on you for signing up with World Vision – it’s something I’ve been thinking of doing for a while now, but haven’t gotten around to.
