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.
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 ^^
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. >.<
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
This was the first time I shared a table space at MCM Expo. I had a lot of fun and gained experience on how to sell to customers plus trends on the market. This allowed me to start up my future business.
I met a bunch of lovely friends during my week at Kaichi whom I still try to keep in touch with. It was a wonderful experience and I can’t wait to join again this year! O Genki desu yo~~!
I went to Manchester for the first time with Jo and Patrick to attend the MCM Expo I play on DDR for most of the afternoon. Another event I attended was Hyper Japan! There were so many Kawaii items as well as Japanese culture surrounding me! Here I got my first Arpakkasso Alpaca ^^
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.
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!
We moved offices this month to somewhere larger with a fun room to play games in! I also attended a Halloween party where I dressed up as a Black Cat ^^ Kekiko was also born and debuted at MCM Expo.
There were a lot of birthdays this month, one being mine! I ate lots and ended up getting really fat! Storing energy for the winter! *pokes her chubby cheeks*
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!
