2012: RECAP

This year has been an amazing year. After 2 years being with the Man of My Dreams, he FINALLY proposed on my birthday!!!! Of course, I said "YES"!!!! I wear his engagement ring on my finger and I cannot wait to marry him. God really do give you someone who will love and cherish you and treat you right. I count my blessings every day and EVERYDAY I thank God.

I think I'm still considered a Pambassador or a Panda Ambassador everyday of my life. I'm so blessed to have made many friends from all over the world in Singapore and it was an experience I would never forget. I enjoyed being a VIP at Sentosa while rocking out to Juliet Simms and Cher Lloyd. Its good to see that everyone still keeps in touch with everyone else. So blessed to have met and got to know each and every single one of them!

I was truly blessed to be able to attend Summer School in Daejeon, Korea thanks to the school of Politics, History and International Relations in University of Nottingham. I'm truly grateful for being able to spend my summer learning about Korean culture, architecture, economics, places of interest and also about my many friends from USA and Colombia that we still keep in touch till now. It was truly and experience I will never forget but I had to cut my studies short and come home to Malaysia because Padrekins decided to go for a major surgery on his leg hence, I cut Korea short and came home. 

One of the best decision I made in my life is doing my Masters in University of Nottingham. It has given me so many experiences during my short stint at the Uni. This picture was a promotional advertisement to promote Malaysia as a place for summer school. I was involved in lots of shooting and video for advertorials for the Uni and I loved my job. It's even more fulfilling when they use your pictures on their websites, etc...

This year, I discovered the fascinating sport of archery. It may seem easy but like every sport, it will only get better with lots and lots of practice. I hope that I can buy my own bow next year and it is a very strenuous sport because you need lots of upper body strength and a focused, clear mind. I could say that I'm not bad. I could shoot an arrow into the bulls eye. 

This year hasn't been a good year for Per Per. He has Malassezia on his ears which resulted in aural hematoma and after a long dose of Clavamox (antibiotics), it finally subsided but his ears are more crinkly. Prior to this, he had a maggot wound near his anus and was hospitalized for 2 weeks. He's a very old dog and he'll turn 12 in 2013 and as he grows older, I grow sadder every time I look at him.

So, for you dog owners out there, life is unfair. You spend 15 years taking care and being attached to your dog but once they see that your life is in order, they'll leave you. I make it a point to tell Per Per that I love him very, very much EVERYDAY, I'm not sure if he understands but he wags his tail in happiness every time he hears I Love You. 

This year has been truly awesome and I will miss 2012 when it ends (Not end of the world, end!) But on the other hand, I can't wait to see what 2013 has in store for me. I know 2013 is going to be a great year because I'll be graduating in February!!!!! That is the highlight of 2013 and if I do get mary, it will be a highlight too... Looking back, I really dodge a bullet back then, I made all the stupid mistakes, fell in love with assholes and screwed my life up. 

A little sneak peek at 2013, The Fiance and Madrekins will be attending my graduation!!!!!
