Welcome 2011!

It is an understatement to say that time is really fast. Wow. It's scary (we're getting old fast!) but I am very glad to bid buh-bye to 2010.

Why? Because, in all honesty, 2010 was a difficult year for us.

2010 was a year of major-major adjustments. It was a year full of challenges: starting with relocation to Kuwait, job-seeking for months and then trying to fit in to my new workplace (working with Arabs is truly different!).

I was excited to kiss 2010 goodbye and was truly looking forward to welcome 2011. Because I reason, with a heart full of hope, that since the year that passed certainly was not a walk in the park the new year has to be a better year for us.

But of course 2010 wasn't all that bad. Like what they say, in times of adversity one finds the most precious of treasures. Hey I don't mean that we were able to unearth a gushing oil supply. Because if that happened I would be writing this entry using an IFad while ordering Berkins (yeah lots of them) at a Hermes shop in Paris.

What I mean by treasures are more precious than material wealth (naks!). Looking back to those period when I was jobless, I can't help but feel this sense of wonder at my husband who was so patient with all my whining and dramatics. Well I'd rather think he must love me (instead of thinking that he had no choice - that he's just stuck with me hehe). Another treasure I personally found is being a part of another loving family - my husband's. I truly appreciate their support during our start up.

So yeah, it wasn't all that bad. After the wake of 2010, we are in a pretty good shape.

But I still believe that this year, 2011, is going to be better! Wohoo :)
