FiSh's Diary: Hello, 2022!

A big hello to 2022❤ Stepping into yet another brand new year would mean that I will be turning 30 in 2022, and I am proud to say (as of the point of writing this) that I am absolutely happy to be at this stage at this point of life. 

Like the years before, it's time to wrap up the year and do a flashback on the good and bad times.

You can see the snapshots of the previous years here:

❤ ❤ 

2021 at a glance. Silly me. I honestly don’t remember much about 2021 until I scroll through all the photos I took and Instastories I posted throughout the year. And I realised, hey it has been an extremely hectic year - even busier than before. No overseas travels, no media events; I just spent most of my time working from home under lockdown with a few staycations and trip during Q4 of the year. But still yeah it’s been a simple yet satisfying year for me. 

January 2021
We were blessed with lots of good food at home in conjunction to the Chinese New Year celebration, when food delivery became a new norm. Keeping myself busy with CNY campaigns was indeed a good start of the year.

February 2021
Stepping out of a toxic relationship also played a huge role in making 2021 a great year. Now thinking about this whole nightmare only sends shivers down my spine - I am so glad that I actually “woke up” and walked away although I could have run earlier.

Although the emotional damage couldn't be undone and I'd still get bad dreams occasionally due to the unpleasant experience, getting rid of the toxicity was the best decision made. My mental health improved a whole lot, and it spurred me in doing better in other aspects of life. 

March 2021
The travel restriction was more relaxed during the early part of the year, so I still managed to create contents outside of home and attended a couple of events. March continued with the same routine - working from home 24/7 and squeezing time in between for content creations.

April 2021
I felt alive once again. "Being yourself is the best way to make someone fall in love with you" - I couldn't agree more with this quote. "Me being myself" is a whole new lesson to me altogether, and I am enjoying every moment of me completely being my true self. 

May - July 2021
And the lockdown (MCO 3.0) was back from early May till mid July, but these few months were never once short of love and care from afar. Work, social media stuff, and weekend "virtual dates" - this hectic routine basically turned into repetitive cycles for a couple of months. Sounds boring? Perhaps yes, but I was happy. And I had not been really happy for some time...

August 2021
Finally completed two doses of vaccination and at that point I thought it was the "ticket" to more travels, less restrictions. But little did I know, new variants of the virus are constantly popping up and we just have no idea when is it exactly safe to be out and about. 

September 2021
Yay, back to the first dine-in during mid September after God-knows-how-long-has-it-been. But Q3 also marked the busiest period at work, where mental stress was bottling up but I am thankful for having the kind souls around me who were always accommodating to my emotions. 

October 2021
Here came the long-awaited staycation during one of the fun-filled weekends in October - totally a destressing and therapeutic weekend away from work. But during the later part of the month, we were hit by the news brought by the nurse over a phone call on a late Friday evening regarding our beloved grandma's passing. Goodbye and we know you're in good hands now :') 

November 2021
November was the most eventful month because it was celebration time for both our birthdays. Meet one of my proudest creations of the year - Jelly Fruit Cake - which I spent more than 10 hours making this. Glad that everything turned out sweet and smooth for this very simple yet special day! 

First birthday trip together in Cameron Highlands for 3D2N.
Looking forward to the next birthday trip to Japan or any part of the world, hopefully.

Due to Chinese customary reasons, I was not supposed to blow a candle or celebrate my own birthday this year. But the day was never short of surprises - lovely crochet bouquet from bestie and alcoholic cake from boyfie. The best part? The once-in-a-lifetime experience of enjoying the panoramic skyline at KL Tower Skydeck, at 300m above the city.

December 2021
The best is always saved for last. December is always the best time to catch up with friends especially those we haven't met in the past year. Happy to still have these few favourite persons in life since more than a decade ago. 

Last but not least, we ended 2021 and welcomed 2022 with a 3D2N staycation :D
Happy to walk through 2021 with you, and embark on the new journey in 2022 with you too.

❤ ❤ 

2021 was a blessing in disguise.
I am truly happy to be able to achieve some of my goals.
Blessed to have my favourite people by my side through thick and thin.
Thanks everyone for your support thus far!

Turning 30 this year actually excites me.
Thirty is the prime time in life where you know what you are doing,
and you've got what it takes to get where you're going.
In fact, you've never been so ready for adventures than you are right now.

So, if you realise you've completed 1/3 of your life,
why not enjoy the rest of your time in a wiser and more meaningful way?
