Reminiscing 2016

This is the last post for 2016.

So much has happened this year. The good, the bad and ugly. Bittersweet year but we survive and thank God for his guidance.

Schools reopened; my eldest in Primary 4 while the 2nd child started his primary school.

CNY was a great and wonderful for us; a time of family and friends come together.

Hubby has his relocation to a Sri Aman and would not know when he would be able to be transferred back home.

My princess is turning 10 and we had a simple lunch celebration for her. An eventful month for Jan and Jay as they had their first repertoire, enrolled in new tuition centre, and entered a colouring competition.

We spent a short family holiday in Sri Aman during the school holiday.

We caught up with our friends over a lunch, my almost 5-years old freezer had a problem and I went for a follow-up check-up and everything was fine.

My beloved uncle passed on and was in a better place. And check out on how we celebrated our first Sarawak Independence Day

A birthday month for me and Jay but it was also a sickness month. Everyone in family was not well and hit by viruses.

We had a simple Chinese dinner with my mil, sil and bil to celebrate our birthday.

The youngest turned 3 in September. No big celebration. And my sil safely delivered a healthy baby girl.

Passing of a relative and my little niece admitted in hospital for lung infection.

A very busy month. Exam, not 100% well. Kids did well in their final exam. And my blog is officially 9 years old.

A quiet month with premature empty nest syndrome for me!! 2 older kids were off on a 3-weeks long holiday and I had that loneliness feeling. Thankfully I have one young kid to hold on to and accompany me through the quiet weeks. And not much Christmas celebration this year. What we did on Christmas Day? Attended morning mass, had afternoon siesta and a wedding reception to attend to in the evening.

That wrapped up my 2016 calendar.

Wishing everyone "Happy New Year" and hope everyone has a wonderful, happy and blessed year ahead. See you all in 2017!
