Last day of 2012

Today is the last day of 2012. The morning wasn't started great as we fought again, over the trivial stuff. Again.
There were little little arguments going on these 3 days, and I was feeling a bit tired. But I wont let anything to ruin my last day of 2012!

Morning, I went down to have breakfast with Ing chin at cafe, chatted for an hour, came back to cube and to realize there isnt too many emails in mailbox, at least nothing related to work:S guess everyone was taking a day off before new year is coming. I talked to my friend on her family, and i talked to her on family i saw, just realize mine was far from the worst. Some of the family ended up in divorce, some doesn't talk to each other for years, some neglected their spouse, some quarrel everyday, but mine, sometimes i forgot what we were fighting for, maybe the reason to fight was too small to remember. I felt that I make a few good changes in this year, I was happier and cleared with my direction, compare to a few years back, when so often i woke up in maze, wondering what should i do to sort love out, wondering who would i ended with so i could stay happier.

And I have more confident this year, I have gained it from some of my very good friends, they make me feel that I am important to them, and i get so much care in return, so as a result, I tend to ignore those doesn't treat me well, I never feel so attached to some group of people before( did i mention i live like a nomad when i was young? :)), whom you know wont judge you, whom you know will give you the most honest feedback, whom you know will not care what others say about you, they accept the worst part in me and cherish the good in me and yes, I found that i have exposed lots of bad part in me in front of them, but i felt good. I am comfortable to what i have now,and that, I would need to thank to the one who quarrel with me this morning and friends whom I chose to be with this year. Thank you! please accept my profound gratitude:)

2012 is good too as i finally got my dream job, not entirely like how i imagined it to be but it is closer to what i wanted to be. Being a technical marketing exposed me to lots of new thing i never saw before. I missed being in SV family, there are lots of good friends and i have built the network that makes my work easier to handle. But when i came out from this family, I felt that i was totally standing alone unshielded in a world that completely strange to me, with lots of uncertainties and incertitude around me. But gladly, i met lots of new friends who helped me up. Thank you!

2012 served me good and i don't wish for better in 2013, just please please please, be it as good as 2012!

happy new year:)

Millie crepe making

The week had passed with its slowest pace I ever had felt it before. This is the last week of 2012,the Mayan prediction has proved to be fraud,Christmas is over and ensued by another new year, but I'm still feeling uber lazy to do something useful, all I want is holiday and more holiday! Anyway, I heard from radio days ago that every human has 3 days, yesterday, today and tomorrow, if your yesterday is equally same has today then your tomorrow will likely be the same too,so do something different. I was inspired and decided to come home earlier on Friday to make my day more useful.

I was hankering over making my own Millie crepe but I knew it wasn't just a cinch, unless you have ample time yourself else you can choose other easier cake to make.
I refer to a Chinese written recipe which was linked from a friend blog but I think to make an easier batter, you can refer to this video instead.Isn't everything easier with Internet?:)

My Millie crepe still needs a lot of improvement, the batter for every crepe was fine but I should add more sugar to my cream,and of coz be more generous on my cream!!

I will continue making my Millie crepe until I was fully satisfied, but as I mentioned, the process was sucking too much time but gladly, I wasn't as busy as I was before now:)

Merry Merry Christmas

It has been sometimes.Leaving this corner in solitude.

and when i came back, a few old comments were patiently waited me for its moderation and even, some were a few months back.

anyway, at least i saw them now. Thanks for dropping by anyway:)

I love Christmas, looking forward to it but when it passed, I was appalled by a thrill of fear of how fast it became a day in history. But ponder from a good side, i knew i was finally settled and belonged now, from family and friends. at least that was what i felt.

This is the forth year I was having a Christmas party at home, it didnt give me too much headache on the guestlist as I dont want to make anyone feeling left out in this merry merry festive season. Like last year, we had steamboat at home with every guest "volunteering" bring one steamboat ingredient or food to the party, and the rest, we could figure it out eventually, but the only difference this year was we were having satay celup instead( Lee fueng sponsored the satay gravy, bought all the way from Malacca though she wasn't able to join the party. Thanks lady:)) thus, i feel more free this year compare to previous years, didnt have too much to prepare though. Most of the faces were the same, except we did have a few new guests this year. a blessed and fruitful year indeed.

Christmas never failed to make me felt blessed and lucky, looking at the gifts given from friends and people around me, it's not that I must have been a good girl this year, but He must be loving me so much that he granted me nice friends around me. So what can i ask for more?:)

Merry Christmas Everyone, may we have another good and blessed year ahead.
