Before I start the New Year I would like to look back and celebrate 2011 once more. It's actually easy to do this because I started this year with a blog. I started blogging again without any expectations. I just wanted to have a little bubble where I could write what I want and have our experiences logged somewhere. I never thought that i would learn a lot of new things, travel to beautiful places through other's blogs & more importantly, meet new friends.
I met lovely people through blogging and made friends as well =)
I gained a lot more confidence with my baking this year and I'm hoping to try out more recipes next year.
Our Auntie Ross visited us this year. She only stayed with us for a week, but we enjoyed her company tremendously.

We bought a Merlin Pass this year (at a bargain price!) and had a blast visiting different parks such as the Chessington World of Adventures, Legoland & Alton Towers. We also went on the London Eye & visited the London SeaLife. Mega sulit specially during summer & Poj had a blast as they all offered a lot for toddlers.

Poj celebrated his 2nd birthday in May. This is also the year when he got hooked on Thomas and Friends. He moved to his own bed and was potty trained this year. We saw his personality shine even more, got to know him more, his likes & dislikes. His love for music is more obvious, he plays his toy guitar and piano while he sings and dance to songs. And he still loves his books & seems to enjoy it more now that he knows his numbers, alphabet & shapes. And he to exerts his independence a lot more, too!
This is another year when we became closer as a couple. The challenges we encountered this year brought us closer together and having Jace glued us more as a family. We thank God for the gift of family, friends and good health. Goodbye 2011 and here's to a better, brighter and healthier 2012!
W The Old Year has gone. Let the dead past bury its own dead. The New Year has taken possession of the clock of time. All hail the duties and possibilities of the coming twelve months! ~Edward Payson Powell
