The new year.

Hello everyone!

I guess it’s not too late to say, “Happy New Year!!!“, right? 🙂
What did you do on new year’s eve? I went to my friend’s house with a small group of friends, only 8 of us (including her adorable toddler). It was a potluck party, she cooked the main course, a friend brought appetizer, another brought wine, and I brought martabak :D. We ate good food, we chatted, and oh, we also exchanged presents. It was a “Secret Santa” kind of thing. My secret Santa gave a weekender bag which I really love, so thank you secret Santa!

After eating, chatting, and exchanging presents, we basically just hung out until midnight. We made a toast soon after midnight and told each other our 2015 resolutions and wishes. I went home not long after and had to pass an invitation to go clubbing because I just did not have the energy anymore. Hahahaha.

How I welcomed my 2015

Although I wanted to go running on the morning of the 1st, the weather did not allow me to. It was raining in Jakarta so I stayed home with my family, just resting. We managed to go out for dinner later on and went to Plaza Senayan for a nice dinner at newly opened Applebee’s.

I had to work on the 2nd as I did not take any leave from the office, but I was not alone. Some of my friends at work were also there so we took extended lunch and had a nice “new year” meal. I spent Friday night at home watching dvd with my mum. We watched “If I stay“, an adaptation of the same titled novel by Gayle Forman. The movie was alright, it’s a teen movie, but I enjoyed the soundtrack.

On Saturday I had a project meeting and then went to a friend’s birthday, again, at Plaza Senayan. Hehe. So that’s how I spent the first days of 2015. How did you spend yours?

Btw, Today is my blog’s anniversary! Yep this blog is turning 1 today! So young hahaha. But I’m thankful because of this blog, I got to be a part of the wonderful blogging community, meet interesting people from all around the world and got to know their stories. I’m thankful as it has opened up opportunities for me too, and I’m thankful because I got to share, which basically is the main reason I published this blog.

To end the post, I’d like to say heaps of thanks to each and everyone of you who have been reading, here’s wishing all of us a better, lovelier, happier, and healthier 2015! ❤

Giveaway! :)

This month I have been writing a lot about happiness and festivity. Well, it’s holiday season (and my birthday month :p) .. who can resist? But then I also realised that it’s almost my blog’s 1st anniversary, means more reasons to celebrate!

Yep, though blogging is not new to me, I moved platform and started fresh early this year. To be exact, my Blog Anniversary is the 4th of January! That’s when the first article of this blog was published. I started this blog with a simple reason, to share stories. Having readers and page views are bonus, getting new friends from all over the world is jackpot! 😀
