A year in review: 2011

I went into this year promising myself that it would be better than the last.







2011 was kind of.. well.. a year of learning and a year of growing, obtaining the knowledge and strength  for me.

My boyfriend amazingly fulfilled two of my wishes. To meet Jay Chou and Taylor Swift. I was in tears of joy when I finally got to see Jay Chou in person. I have been a fan of him since I was 12 but today, I'm proud to say I'm out of this fantasizing thingy. 
I remember vividly how my boyfriend popped by at my workplace with Taylor Swift concert tickets and left me jaw dropping.

And also not to forget my beloved father who treated his two perfect daughters to JB concert. ♥♥♥

and there was a period of time when I fell out of love, it was the time when I gained a lot of wonderful new friends this year, I also had to say goodbye to a few old ones that I was not at all ready to say goodbye to.

Despite the break up, I'm glad we made it through and instead, made us stronger than before.

it was painful, but all worth it.

and also not to forget the sweater that I took a year to complete. It's an accomplishment too! (although it doesn't fit perfectly because I got all my measurements wrong...)

And whats more than feeling the accomplishment after a long painstaking time of studying? There's another tormenting time for me to face in July. But that's life right? No pain, no gain.

I had been actually working in RenCi hospital as a temp for a few months and everywhere was filled with nice people. It was an eye opener to me seeing really sick old people who were sent into the nursing home by their families and most of them were abandoned. It was so sad and heartbreaking.

and who made my year 2011 a perfect ending? MY PARENTS.
THEY ARE SO AWESOME. If it wasn't for them, I wouldn't be able to visit these places:
