My Life in 2016

2016, aged 26 and feels like it’s a turning point for me in my life. I’ve met so many people and I’ve lost some people that I cared deeply. I’ve experienced so much more – the highs and the lows. Love and heartbreaks.

This is my story in 2016 in brief.

Thank you for all the parting gifts, how sweet of you to think of me 🙂 


Throughout the year, I’ve been through so many rough and painful moments.  I’ve lost few friends, few people that I cared and loved, my pet and some parts of me.

In those painful times, there’s you that I’ve met and shared my happiness with.

There are few things that are really personal to me. I was truly scarred and probably still am. I’ve shed so much tears and during times like this, I realized that not everyone would care but it does make a difference when a few of them cared and listened.

I would like to thank each and of you that had stayed by my side during these times.

I am not able to talk about it now, perhaps in future, I will be able to tell the stories.

This year will be filled with greater challenges and obstacles.
In the same time, I believe that it would offer me greater experiences in life.
