Two oh one four had been pretty amazing and great. The first quarter had finally passed and guess what? Friends had been saying that I am a real busy lady.
Well, I guess I did and I do.
All those Toastmasters meetings and contests. All those companies events and trainings. They really took a lot out from me but, guess what?
I am enjoying it! Like really really enjoying the life I am having right now.
January was already a pretty busy month for me. I organised a karaoke session with my friends and the turn out was really great! Though it lasted for 3 hours, we really had fun. Some were happily chit chatting away while others were happily screaming their lungs out.
I participated a bowling contest and my team won the second place. During the game, I was awarded The Most Conservative Style. I wonder what it meant.
During one of the weekends, I managed to catch up with my old buddies for some drinks. Sadly that was the last time I saw them which leads me to the next question on when will I be able to see them again!
The week before I go back Sibu for Chinese New Year was pretty tense. There were a few activities here and there but the most important of all was a farewell gathering for our most beloved friend, David, which also means Beloved. Though I knew him for a short period of time, it feels like I have known him for more than a year. A really fun and very sarcastic friend I shall say.
Now it is finally come to the end of the month. I was back to Sibu for freaking two weeks and it was awesome! I spent a lot of quality time at home and of course, with my family and friends. Great catch ups and all.
February? It started with a surprise. I was surprised to receive a Valentine’s gift. Thought I would not receive one since I am single. A small bear and a chocolate. Up to date, I have not eaten the chocolate. It is still inside the freezer.
I spent my Valentine’s in a different way. I went to this stand up comedian with a few friends of mine. There was no romance but at least I had a good laugh that night.
I did have a Chinese New Year reunion dinner with my family back in Sibu but, I did not get to have a reunion dinner with my family in Penang! We really had a good time during the dinner. We then continued the night by invading Mu Hau’s crib. It was definitely a great night.
I had a surprise visit from a close friend of mine all the way from Subang Jaya. Though we only spent a night together, we really had a great time I shall say. Really hope to see you again, babe.
To be honest, February was really packed. There were a lot of Toastmasters Clubs’ Contests all over Penang and I tried my very best to attend them. To learn. To observe. With all those contests and gatherings, my company managed to slot into my packed schedule. I had to join this Agency Retreat to Pulau Pangkor. Frankly speaking, I had a bad feeling about this but I was wrong. I am glad that this retreat happened because I was never close with my colleagues from other places and guess what? Thanks to this retreat, I am closer to them now.
March was not any good either. Packed with Toastmasters meetings as well as some other contests. To start it off, I had this Sushi Bonanza with my friends and it was massive! We ate like nobody business and yeah, totally worth it!
That same month, I had a road trip with a few crazy friends of mine. We bought tickets to Legoland so, we decided to drive all the way down to Johor. We took a stop in Malacca and stayed a night there. Though it was less than a day in Malacca, I managed to devour food that I had been craving for so long! We stayed the next night in Johor after a long day in Legoland and then proceeded to drive back to Penang the next day after. It was totally insane and I was caught by surprise that I managed to get to work the next day.
Miscellaneous activities here and there after and oh, not to forget, the company trainings in Ipoh and then Kuala Lumpur. March marked a very important accomplishment of mine as well. I drove to Kuala Lumpur from Penang and back alone for the very first time! It was a great experience and it seems I am not afraid of anything anymore!
As you can see, first quarter of 2014 was really packed and it will not end there. More are coming and I am really looking forward to it!
God loves me, he does.
