Happy New Year

Hi all! As we close 2010, I'd like to wish you all a very happy New Year! May 2011 be a great year for you filled with many great things that brings you joy and happiness.

I am enjoying my last weekend here in Jakarta. I had a wonderful Christmas with my family. Christmas eve, my mom cooked a wonderful steamboat dinner, and my uncle also get to join us. It was awesome! My brothers and I kept joking around and we just laughed so hard teasing each other and sharing memories.

At one point, my mom was sniffling due to runny nose and my brother jokingly said, mom, why are you crying. My mom's replied had me stopped for a second. She said, "I am teary eyed because it's so wonderful to hear the laughter of all my kids at the dinner table again." I think at that moment, all of us felt such gratefulness.

I don't take anything for granted. I savor every moment, every laugh, every hugs, jokes, etc. I want to remember it all. This Christmas trip means the world to me. My family totally spoiled me. My older brother commented how his siblings (me and my younger brother) could be so independent, yet as soon as we're by our mom, we could be like a baby again. LOL. I had to laugh. That's so true. :)

Anyway, more stories later. Again, have a blessed New Year and my this coming year brings you health, prosperity, happiness, and joy. HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011!!! Cheers....
