Goodbye 2011, Hello 2012

Ending with a BANG! Not your ordinary fizzle :P

2011 was full of extraordinary memories. And of course, here I am with my year ender special. SPECIAL? :P Seriously now, as I face 2012, I hope for the very best. But tonight, as I repeat the rest of my year, I hope you bear with my nostalgia :)


JANUARY

I faced New Year 2010 alone. But come 2011, I was with Jeff. Our first New Year together. I also had the chance to become very close with my RSB friends, Khamz and Kara. After our Chinatown trip, we went to watch then-Willing Willie with Sir Hec. It was also the first time Jeff and I celebrated his birthday together. And before the month ends, I got the chance to celebrate UST's 400th year with my classmates :)

See? I had an eventful year with me. All filled with good and not so good memories. But if 2011 taught me anything, it led me to more life changing decisions and showed me who my real friends are. And of course, although we had ups and downs, life with Jeff is lovelier every second.

For now, I hope that 2012 would bring us more luck, love and life! I can't wait for the next year to start, for it is another page ti be filled with great opportunities and more memories.

Happy New Year Everyone!
