Enjoyed my attempt at hand lettering. :)
I just started this May but after a week, having the time to make a list everyday seems like a luxury now! Especially with baby’s sleep so off recently. Oh well, just keep trying! Will try to catch up on the next two lists. :)

A quote from Sean Adams, foundations of layout and minimalism on Lynda.com
The point of good design is not to look laboured and desperate. It’s to appear effortless.
I haven’t written on here for a long long time, 834 days to be exact.
Here are the highlights:
- Baby girl born healthy and incredibly beautiful
- Being a parent has brought on a new meaning to “tired”
- Being a parent has also brought a new meaning to the word “happy”
- Bought a house
- Enjoying life.
I thought I would revive this blog after a few years to talk about life and my new hobbies.
(my email address was cloned and WordPress shut this site down for a while)
So on to the next chapter for me.
Here we go.
I can’t believe it… In a few weeks (or days) I will be a mother. It’s been an incredible journey so far, carrying this beautiful baby girl inside of me. It wasn’t easy but it’s definitely worth it.
Life will never be the same again, I keep telling myself over and over again, but until I hold that little bundle in my arms, I don’t think it will ever sink in.
What would it feel like, to have a completely helpless little human being depend on you for survival? What would it feel like to experience a love so pure you would do anything for this person? What would it feel like, to finally see those little eyes look at you and know you are loved…
I read an article saying that my life will change in a way that my husband will not the Center of my world anymore, I still find that hard to believe because how can I love anybody more than B? I have a feeling though that when I see our daughter for the first time, my heart will grow just a little bit bigger and two people will now be the Center of my existence…
One thing I know for sure, this is the greatest blessing we have received and no words can describe how thankful we are. We have created a little person, a mixture of ourselves, a manifestation of our great love for each other… It boggles the mind… I just can’t wait to meet her.
It’s been a while since I posted anything on here so I thought I’d cheat and do a quick recap of (perhaps) the most amazing year for B and I.
Here’s a list of the significant dates for us this 2011:
- January 1
B had a great birthday, a significant age milestone!
- January 6
Received the email from New Zealand immigration, our NZ Residence visas, which we have been waiting 3 years for, have finally been approved!
- February 5
Papa turned 70, had an amazing birthday party with the family complete! We also received great news that we have a new nephew on the way.
- March 19
B and I flew to India for the first time. Beautiful country, amazing food, great people!
- April 9
The big move to New Zealand. It was an emotionally charged day, and I cried like a baby on the plane. Sad to leave my family behind, but so excited about our future in NZ. Wow what a day!
- April 10
Arrived in Auckland and had a first glimpse of our new country, beautiful!
- April 11
Touched down at our final destination, New Plymouth. Our mouths dropped when we saw how beautiful the place was. Though it felt like we were in limbo for a few days, loved the place but we were living out of a low-cost hotel room, which I hated.
- April 15
Moved in to our new apartment. Finally I was happy! We were sooo so lucky to get this place and we can finally say we are finally home!
- April 18
First day on the new job. NZ is a great place to work, I love my Kiwi officemates.

- October 3
I turned 33 this year!

One of the best days of our lives, we got married surrounded by family and friends! It was absolutely the most perfect and beautiful day.
