It's A Wrap for 2014 & Welcome 2015!

Happy New Year 2015!!! ♥ Are you ready for 2015? 

How's 2014? Awesome? No matter what, be sure to make 2015 even better, fuller and more memorable! What matters is still the process, the every single day we spend at work, in college, with friends, family and loved ones. 

2014 has treated me pretty well, let’s do a quick recap on the precious memories during the year :) 
You can click on the red, bold phrases to read (if you haven’t!) about the related blog post.

This is the very first picture I took in 2014 during the countdown at KLCC. Told ya 2014 is going to be colorful and magical like the fireworks and dancing water performance, and in just a blink of eyes, we're now stepping into 2015 already!

First (and last, lol) Genting trip in 2014 to celebrate my bestie's birthday.
So nice to be January baby right? Can enjoy the holiday so much!

It's Chinese New Year and semester break :D
Did our annual family visit to the temple of lights, Fo Guang Shan at Jenjarom.

Sponsored trip to Langkawi & we stayed at the private Ocean Residence 
with an infinity pool by the sea! Read more about my adventure: Part 1 / Part 2 

Second month of my internship with my bestie around! The 6-months journey was hectic and tough, 
but pretty awesome to meet lovely bunch of colleagues and the best leng lui manager ever!

First time working outstation for an international brand.
First time laughing till tears came out in the office.
First time working at a golf course, restaurant, factory, etc.
Loads of first-times and precious experiences in this company! 

So honored to be Nuffnang Featured Blogger of the Month! Thanks for the opportunities over the years~


Honored to be a panel judge for US Fresh Potato Culinary Challenge 2014 to rate the dishes presented by top chefs in hotels and restaurants around Klang Valley, although I myself can't even cook :P 

First professional studio photoshoot with my besties! Thank you to the Korean couple for hosting us, it was indeed one of the best memories ever  But unfortunately I lost all the soft copy photographs that I store in my laptop T___T Luckily I still have some, kept in this blog :') 

Party time at MTV World Stage 2014 with the crazy bunch! :D

And yes, it marks the end of my internship too!! *smell the air of holiday*


Sponsored trip to Redang Island, it marks my first snorkelling experience despite of being a non-swimmer. I was soooo frightened to get into the sea, but luckily there were alot of nice people during the trip to help me out :) Thank you Laguna Redang Island Resort for hosting the trip!

Bleached my hair PINK too, all thanks to La' Mode Coiffure for sponsoring.

I have never thought I was going to have this shocking pink hair until the hairstylist told me so. He suggested me to try out something bolder, brighter and even HOTTER! Anyway, thanks for your Facebook likes and comments; Most were very encouraging and comment that the new hair color suits me.

But the truth hair got really damaged after that, and I was very unhappy even after rounds of intensive treatments. Luckily, I am going to get another hair sponsor to fix my hair next month! *can't wait!*


Thank you Borneo Soap for sponsoring me and Ella on another adventure to Kuching, Miri and Bario, a Kelabit territory, one of the minority Orang Ulu tribes of Sarawak!! Bario is the most rural place I've ever been in my entire life!

Imagine living without phone reception for a week, and limited electricity, cold weather all day long? But I really enjoyed the trip very much, for the first-time experiences I have in the paddy field, pineapple farm, sheep farm, salt spring (jungle), etc...

First time flying with MAS Wings, an ATR aircraft that fits a maximum of 14 persons.
And I sat directly behind the pilot!!

Here are the summary of my adventure:

My 4th sponsored trip of the year! We headed to Bangkok this time, courtesy to Mode Sathorn Hotel. And I met the nicest tour guide ever in Bangkok, thanks for making me fat during the trip and luring me with good food pictures via Whatsapp all the time. Haha, until now he still keeps in touch with me :) 

Ah, I'm such a lazy blogger, I haven't complete all my blog posts on Bangkok adventure,
but at the mean time you can view the below posts first. Will update more, I promise!

Part 1: Unicorn Cafe at Bangkok /
Part 2: The Roof at 38th, Bangkok's hottest rooftop bar
Part 3: Mode Sathorn Hotel + Breakfast review


My favourite month of the year!!! Because it was my birthday, thanks for the special Magnum birthday ice cream + H.B. Rose Latte! Spent some quality time with my close friends during my birthday week although I was so caught up with assignments and midterms. Thank you nice bunch of people who bought me cakes and celebrated this special day with me! :)

And I'm a die-hard Starbucks fans, so happy to receive such an awesome birthday present 
all the way from Korea--- 2015 Starbucks Planner x Moleskine.

Was spotted on The Star paper and New Strait Times throughout the month, for the collaboration with Dove.

It was year end, and hence gifting time! Hosted two biggest giveaways of the year on my blog---
#1 Canon Pixma MG7570 All-in-One Printer, one for you and another for me!
#2 A COACH Bag + 6 months supply of Kotex - Contest is ongoing, just leave a comment HERE.

Lastly, I managed to celebrate Christmas with le family, and
*proud* My first attempt to bake Orange and Poppy Seeds Muffin had succeeded! Yums.

Before 2015 arrives...
Look how much I have changed! Not just in terms of hairstyle, but becoming more mature and clearer in my direction on what I want to achieve in the upcoming year. Honestly 2014 is like a roller coaster, full of ups and downs, and I may have screamed and enjoyed throughout the journey. Ultimately, I'm still grateful for being who I am today. I'm glad that the hardships in life shape me into a better person, more appreciative of the little things that I may have lost and gained. 

Now it's a wrap! When I look back into what I've accomplished throughout 2014, I realise it is indeed a fruitful year with loads of new experiences as an auditor, as a blogger, and as a traveler. Despite of heavy workload and academic commitments, I'm lucky to earn 4 sponsored trips in 2014. Nothing beats the time spent at a stranger's place :) 

At the end of this year, I learn that the hard work is worth the pain and tears. Thank you people who have been supporting me all these while, your little words of encouragement meant a lot to me. When life was too hard to stand, you were the ones who reminded me to kneel and pray for a better tomorrow 

2013 was good, but I didn't expect 2014 to be so good as well! In fact, 2015 looks pretty good as I've sealed a contract for the next couple of months, and few more endorsements plus giveaways for you guys!!!  

Lastly, all I need to say today is....

Out of all the achievements today, the main contributor is not me, but YOU! ♥ I've lived with for the past 3.5 years, and I'm happy to gain support from you guys. I promise, I will be more hardworking in blogging. 

Thank YOU for reading me!
See you in 2015!


What's your say? :)
