Hello 2013!!!!!!!!!

Hello friends.. I am back to blogging..Wish you all a very happy new year!!!! Have you guys made annual  to-do  list for 2013. I have.. I made one last year as well..and am so glad that most if not all of the tasks I had planned for 2012 are done!! Looking back at 2012, it has been a very good year personally..

- First and the most important is that I became a mother. I have a sense of fulfillment now... I feel so complete after giving birth. It was the most painful ( physically) yet happiest moment of my life. My baby is the joy of my life and I am enjoying every single moment of being a full time mom. 

 A sketch I made of my mom holding my son when he was 1 month old.

- My parents came to Singapore for my delivery . They stayed with us for 5 months. We enjoyed Mommy's lovingly hand cooked food for all 5 months. She cooks such tasty yummy food. Even the simple dishes taste so heavenly when cooked by her. They both are so positive and optimistic about life. Brought back lot of positivity, witty sense of humor and energy to my life. 

- starting my own business . It hasn't made me richer but I feel happy, confident and strong.    This creative work makes me happy and satisfied that's why I do it. It keeps my spirits high all day. I can smile and be cheerful all day for my child. A happy full time mom ( especially in the growing years ) makes happy children I believe and is my experience so far.  I am also glad that I could achieve some level of mastery in managing time taking full time care of my son and doing other household chores without any help.

- I have got back into pre-pregnancy weight..

- I have seen most if not all of Hong Kong. Enjoyed the winter, experienced the typhoons, ate delicacies, visited most of the  the nooks and corners worth seeing, shopped antiques and local artifacts etc etc

 It had some downs as well but then this blog is my positive diary and I don't want to focus on wrong things.. No one should.

So what are your plans for new year..It is 10 Jan now. I made my annual to- do list just yesterday.

The first is another big move. We are moving to Dubai in 10 days .. It just happened suddenly..I know we moved to Hong Kong some 8 months back. But that's just us. I am just extra flexible to move, love to travel and live/ experience different parts of the world. 

Will keep you posted!!

till then
