2013: A Year Review

0 Flares Twitter 0 Facebook 0 Google+ 0 0 Flares ×

How is everybody’s new year so far? Mine is good so far. We just started the work week again, but I still feel that tired sluggish self in the mornings since I’ve been going to bed late during the holidays. I think one of my resolutions should be to sleep and wake early, but due to this technology advanced century, I’m constantly on the internet…

Anyway I would like to review the past year with the photos I posted on Instagram and also stored on my phone. My phone and Instagram account mark a year anniversary for me since they are a year old now ^^ How exciting! Here are my most memorable moments of 2013.

January 2013
This was the first New Years I had to spend away from home. I had recently moved to London for my new job and had to work. With the annoying train times I decided to move back early to avoid not being able to get back. I was glad my housemate invited me to her mum’s so I wasn’t alone ^^

Karaoke, Valentines, Chinese New Year

February 2013
I celebrated Chinese New Year at my ex’s place. We played Space Team and this old school gambling game. There was also a karaoke party for CNY that I went to. We all sung to our hearts content and I’d never forget how Sue had threw up all over me when I was looking after her drunk-self. >.<

Holiday in Hong Kong and Macau

I went on holiday to Hong Kong with my brother and friend Joanna. We had a wonderful time and I also visited Macau to see the cathedral walls. I also got to see my wifey, where we went to a Korean BBQ buffet and also a beach BBQ. I had bought a LOT back and it was all for meeee! First time when I didn’t have to buy souvenirs :D

My cousin and I held our first Carboot Sale. It was really fun and we managed to clear out a lot of wardrobe space! To round it off, Mum also came up to London for a visit. We went around London eating and drinking.

September 2013
I went on a lovely weekend away to the Peak District with my Kaichi friends. We went bike riding but as we got lost, we ended up riding for a good 8 hours! Everyone couldn’t really walk the next day! The Kaichi lot also planed a weekend up to Alton Towers. Although it was a cold day we all enjoyed it to the max!

This was an eventful month filled with Christmas parties, Winter Wonderland, joy and cheer. It ended with a shebang at Jo’s house for teppanyaki, karaoke and playing Just Dance into the early hours of 2014.

Ahh the memories!! Here’s to a joyful and prosperous 2014! Cheers everyone!

Warm Wishes,
Kekidoll xoxo

    I tried the sleep and wake up early resolution once and… I totally couldn’t do it! I just like staying up late too much, haha.

    That’s great that you spent so much time with friends in 2013 and that you got to do a bit of traveling! It looks like you had a really fun year! I remember your blog entries for many of these events :) I hope you have an awesome 2014!

    • OMG I know what you mean!! I’ve been heading to sleep at 1-2am in the mornings cos I end up watching dramas or playing games on the computer…

      Yeah I guess ever since moving to London I’ve been able to hang out a lot more with my group of friends but granted, the Londoners haven’t really be organising any outings lately. I must catch up with them all! I’m so glad that you’re one of my loyal readers, I hope that I will continue to write more posts that you’ll enjoy reading this year ^^
