It's NEW YEAR again!

Last December, Akira wrote this.
Yesterday, Dec 31st 2010, she felt numb.
During the past few weeks, she's been (and she's still not done yet) organizing the pictures and videos captured during my last 7 months away in the USA and in Europe.
She's merely deleting poor quality pictures/videos, rotating and also organizing them with proper details and it’s using her quite a lot of time.

Since Akira and you just ushered into the new year, let’s briefly recap happenings in the past 1 year:-
.... Akira's past 1 year...
It has been the most adventurous year of her life thus far.

January : Company’s family day at Genting Highlands, Malaysia
February : During this Chinese New Year, she anxiously waited for the return of her police background check for visa applications 
March : Dateline drew near and fingers crossed for AP-HF matching.
April : On the 16th, it was her last day holding the designation as a project executive 
May : America had always seem far fetched until she arrived in lovely Seattle. Fresh cherries, strawberries, nectarines, YUM! and she'd like more now!
June : Even more unbelievable, wandering in even lovelier ALASKA!
July : Hiking at snowy Mount Rainier. Picnicking nearly daily during kid’s summer swim meets at sport clubs around Seattle
August : Camping with host family at Birch Bay State Park enjoying freshly caught Dungeness Crabs.
September : Arrived at Glendale, California.
October : Driving 4 kids in a Chevrolet Suburban daily for tennis trainings at the academy, boxing and soccer practices and spending a week at childhood friend’s place in LA.
November : Passport got lost with stolen backpack in London during a 5 weeks’ wandering trip in Europe
December : Arrived home a few days before grandma’s unexpected passing on Dec 10th 2010.

Yes, she touched down at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) on Dec 6th 2010, a day after her supposedly arrival, due to the unfortunate event in London. It’s been 1 month and she's gotten few replacements for items she lost. Anyways, Christmas is behind Akira and you now and the new year countdown was just yesterday (Though Oh NO!, it’s already 30 mins into Jan 2nd, 2011).

It’s a BRAND NEW YEAR, a brand new month, a brand new day and they call it 1111 !!!

Akira would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year 2011!!!
May whatever you set forth comes true!

What she has for the time being is  a little extra time and she is determined to revive this blog of hers.
There is a lot to write about and pictures to share and because there is too much, she feels lazy. She just needs some time to collect her thoughts and put them down in words. At times, when the mood doesn’t come, blogging feels more like work to her. She makes sure she doesn’t write in times like this as she believes the mood would show in her writing which is not a good thing at all, right?

Aside from blogging, she’d like to play more songs with the guitar(I can play this song now, YAY!), pick up more basketball tricks, pick up more German and Jap (can you figure a joke out of this, some Europeans did on her! ), go to a Toastmaster meeting, mess the kitchen more, annoy her mom and of course, CASH, please come raining down on her!

So, let’s see, yes, she's HOME! YES, that’s FOR sure!
IT’S 2011 NOW! YES, that’s FOR sure!

Is she REALLY here? THIS, she's NOT sure!
