Happy New Year! A review of 2015

Happy New Year all you cuties! I hope you all had a wonderful time with friends and family!

For my Christmas break, I ended up spending time with family and friends. It was a lovely time off and great to catch up with everyone, but I felt that tired hosting so many parties! I think I’ll have to have a rest for a while before hosting another event…

So looking back at 2015, what were my highlights from each month?

January
New year, new beginnings, exciting times! I ate my way through the first month hehe. Visited a LEGO art exhibition and went to Winter Wonderland.

February
Spent Valentine’s dinner as a 3rd wheel but had the weekend with my other half :P Also attended a couple birthday parties :D My Chinese New Year was spent running around Chinatown looking for a place to eat and locating this man with golden balloons with Sue…

March
Attended the BSTF nationals with my TKD group (as a cheerleader) and my friend’s brother’s wedding. Also held a bake sale competition at work – I won best presentation :D

April
Attended Hyper Japan at Earl’s Court. Sadly this place is to be demolished and turned into a hotel :(

May
Went to the May MCM Expo.

June
I participated in the annual Kaichi event where Kaichi High School from Japan comes to London to practice their English and learn about the culture. It’s such a great experience where you get to meet new people and learn about the Japanese culture too. I attended my first free gaming event and got some freebies. Also managed to get my red belt in TKD! Nathan invited us to play crazy golf for his birthday and Manni had a meat-filled birthday at Bodeans :D

July
Visited friends in Ireland! We’ve never met but it was such a warm welcome and the distance didn’t make anything awkward at all! Friends will always be friends <3

August
Moved away from London and into my new flat! Had a lovely evening out bowling with colleagues for our team event. Also helped create a teaser video for our TKD group.

September
Visited Japan! YAY! Was so happy, really want to go back and visit again.

October
I attended MCM Expo in London for Kekiko and spent Halloween in Amsterdam.

November
My birthday month! Basically had a lovely meal with friends in Soho. I also decided it was time to stop TKD as I was living too far out from London to justify travel costs and travel times.

December
Spent Christmas chilling with family, playing mahjong and filling my belly with lots of yummy food. Also made my first ever gingerbread house with my little cousin! We had so much fun and I didn’t realise that the packet didn’t come with sweets to decorate (fail!) and thus we rummaged through the cupboards for sprinkles and sweets. My friends also came round for Christmas and New Years for some karaoke and video games. My team in the office also converted our area into Narnia! Crazy but it was such an amazing environment to work in and felt like we were working outdoors! I also had to help plan and organise the company Christmas party and ended up throwing a Great Gatsby themed prohibition event. We kitted out the bar venue with DIY props, a personalised video and personalised posters so everyone was involved.

Wishing you all a prosperous 2016 and a very happy, fun-filled year!

Best wishes,

Kekidoll xoxo

Some of them played mahjong whilst my cousins and I gamed on the Wii U and our 3dses. I was battling it out on FF: Rhythm Theatre Call. However it was hard to win since I didn’t practice a lot xD

How are you all celebrating? Will you go see the festivities?

Reminder about Kekiko celebration!

February celebrations

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Ended up watching Kingsmen with my hanni yesterday which we found fun! So much excitement and hilarious moments. Think they had too much fun with their budget xD Everyone should go watch it. By the time it finished, all the restaurants were closed so we ended up having to grab a Subway and he cooked a curry after xP Nomming!

Today, Nam and Sue kindly invited me to join them for dinner at Flesh & Buns, a branch of Bone Daddies. The food was very tasty and I shall be blogging about it very soon!

Chinese New Year is next week as well and I’m having dinner with family. Then karaoke with friends on the weekend ^^

To celebrate CNY 2015 Year of the Sheep, I’ve honored a 10% off the whole Kekiko shop!

Please help me spread the word.

Karaoke for Chinese New Year

So we head into the year of the snake yesterday. Gong Xi Fa Cai!

New years eve was spent with a bunch of friends going to Karaoke in London. It was an eventful night albeit a little hassle and something I wasn’t expecting.

At karaoke

Aside from singing to my hearts content, I ended up looking after two rather drunk female friends and having to take them home because they were too smashed to be capable of returning home… One got knocked out by Tequlia shots and the other by Mr Jack Daniels. The guys and I vouched that on our next outing we shan’t be allowing them near a single drop of alcohol. I didn’t get back home till 8am on Chinese New Year morning. I had planned to go to Trafalgar to see the lion dance in the morning but that didn’t happen because I was too tired and the girls needed rest.

The guys rapping and singing

So my new year was an eventful one. I did end up singing all night till 4am though son I was happy about that. Just not from the stench on my clothes hahaha.

Did you celebrate Chinese New Year? Did you go see the celebrations in London? Xxx
