Happy new year once again!!
Day 1 of 2016!!
It's been a long time since I last weight myself. So this morning step on it, to my surprise! I'm getting closer to my CNY challenge target!!!! Yahoo!!!!!! 800grams more to go before CNY!!! 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻
Actually being very busy in n out hospital lately which mess up my workout routine a lot. Really need to get back to workout seriously to get myself fit again!
Ohaiyo Gozaimasu from Japan!
Whenever my sis sends me my niece, Marichan's photos, it has a type of magic that can really cheer up my day!! 😘😘😘
Getting herself into the box again lol
Mari OS: Opps! Mama spotted me! 😂😂😂
Happy new year from the Japanese family!
Mari looked so cheeky here, sis said she wanna eat but they force her to take photo 😂😂😂
Really miss the new year countdown with them during 2013!! Everyone hangout in the house playing Japanese version cards, chit-chatting and hv melon ice-cream!! I still remembered it all!!! Then during the first day of the year, we went to nearby temple to pray.
Maybe I should plan one trip to Japan end of this year again? Hahahaha!!
Review of 2015
Looking back my 2015, I'm lucky to be able to travel quite a lot last year, I really appreciate every opportunity to travel around, meeting new people, having new experience, having great foods and open my heart to new things.
1. Getting myself an international driving license.
With the international driving license, I got to drive in Thailand, Taiwan and Japan legally lol
It's really a nice and cool experience to drive abroad. And to my surprise, it's totally different way to get to know another country, eg explore their traffic rules, understand road sign n much more!!
I really recommend you to give it a try! But first to first, must drive safely la..

2. Family reunion during CNY.
The very first time my Japanese BIL and niece visit Kuching, somemore during CNY, really means a lot to our family!
I chose to spend time with them rather than go visiting that time. Family always my top priority. 😊
I think my niece had a lot of fun during her time in Kuching.
Love this photo a lot, not sure she will remember that she used to have a great time with me or not, anyway, I got this photo as proof to show her in future lol
3. Joined #AABC big family!
I can still remember the excitement when I first received invitation email from AirAsia PR, Ashman.
I still haven't used to call myself a blogger, I just updated 12 posts only last year.. 🙈🙈🙈 (Sock Peng gonna 🔪🔪🔪 me)
First hangout in Berjaya Times Square, KL.
Then second hangout with AABC in Penang and first time meet and flying together with my idol, Jian from akiraceo.
I was super duper excited!!
Then won in competition and got free flight ticket to Taiwan高雄.
4. Plan and witness two friends' proposals!
First one during February - Yung n Fen
Second one during Christmas Eve Party - Kenny and Jenny
(My Sonny Angels witnessed the special moment too lol)
Both proposals successfully surprise their girlfriends! 😊
And I'm both proposals' official photographer lol I love to shoot for happy and sweet moments.
5. Finally experience solo travel!!
My first solo travel, I went to KL in July, actually somewhere I'm more familiar with la.. #playcheat
Hmmm.. Train my courage.. Hahahahaha!!
Staying opposite KLCC so that I could go to Popular book fair easily and attend talks.
Not really solo actually, coz everyday schedule full of gatherings with friends 😝
Train my courage to solo travel in Japan!
This solo travel challenge was a huge success for me! #syioksendiri
At least I survived myself for a week in Kyoto and Osaka, with super duper limited speaking skills, luckily Japanese are super friendly to help me all the time.
And experienced capsule hotel!! Another bucket list done!!
Airbnb host in Osaka was kind enough to let me stay alone in her apartment as she was on a business trip to somewhere else. She some more apologize to me and gave me discount, so I end up paying around RM 100 per night but owning the whole unit!! #iamlucky
Host prepared a lot of food n snacks in her fridge for me, so I could cook breakfast and dinner in the kitchen.
Her apartment feels so homey. I do wish to own one apartment like this too!
6. Visit Taiwan twice last year
March last year, I brought my mom to Taiwan coz she always wanted to go to Taiwan so much.
I'm glad that she enjoyed the trip 😊
Second trip was a bit special, I was invited as a blogger by Taiwan Ministry of Economic Affairs to visit different business districts in the southern region of Taiwan.
I got to meet different social influencers from different countries. I have a great opportunity to talk to different business owners and even get to interview them. It's really inspiring to listen to their stories. I really feel so blessed and thanks to Sock Peng who recommended me.
7. Learn something new - Capoeira
I do miss my previous happening life in KL. Sometime I think my life here is quite boring. So a month ago, I step out of my comfort zone, to learn something which is totally new to me, Brazilian martial art - Capoeira.
I get to expand a little bit of my social circle, getting to know more interesting and positive friends, so far I still love this crowd of people who keeps on inspiring me. Really hope that there will be more people interested in Capoeira so we can have more fun.
8. Starts writing traveler notebook
I think this is my fourth TN. I think this is a good hobby, and I have some 😈 friends who always poison me with stationery/MT or share new tips/skills with me.
Hmm.. Honestly, these 4 are not 100% complete yet! OMG, really no idea when I can finish them!
9. In love with the art of culinary
Culinary + photography = 😍
I think Master chef really inspires me a lot, especially Gordon Ramsay. He makes me feel like wanna know more about culinary knowledge, until I got myself a book to study, this is how serious I am now, hahahaha!!!!
10. Continue to keep myself healthy
On and off in my fitness journey this year so until now still haven't achieved my dream body Orz
Hope this coming year I can start to eat clean and I want abs!
