Happy New Year!

Happy New Year friends!

I promised myself to allot more time in Blogging this year.  Many days have passed and yet I wasn’t able to write something.  Therefore, I decided to write my “Happy New Year” post.

2017 was a great year.  I was able to go back to Philippines and enjoyed some time with family and friends. Also visited some places for the first time like The Sleeping Dinosaur Island, San Victor Island, Pinto Museum, etc.

Had also the chance to spend a few days in Thailand. I love the place and will definitely come back. The highlights of my visit can be read through the following posts:


There were still a lot of places that I visited, but wasn’t able to post them here.  I’ll find some time to post them soon. 😀

Visiting new places has always been a very rewarding experience for me. Every time I visit a new place, I always get that feeling of getting new strength from that place.  I feel refreshed and ready to face the challenges of life afterwards.  That is why, if I feel down and stressed out – the only thing that would make me feel better is to be in a new place… 😉

This year, I told myself that I should visit at least two new countries, and I hope I’d be able to do this. hahaha

God has been so good to us.. to me… I thank God for everything that is happening in my life. I am starting to fulfill my dreams because of HIM.  So, to every one – please do not lose hope and keep trusting GOD.  Everything will happen in HIS right time. And when it does, you’d realise that whatever hardships & trials you faced in the past, it will be worth it.

Happy New Year!!!

Cheers to 2018…


Xin Nian Kuai Le! (Happy New Year)

Spring festival, or what is more known as the Chinese New Year, is considered one of the most important events in China.  This year we will celebrate it on January 23, 2012.

The celebration is based on the lunar calendar, so that the first day of the lunar year marks the Chinese New Year.

Nowadays we often hear people sa “Kung Hei Fat Choy” (they want to say “Happy New Year” to you).   But do they know what does it mean?  Here are different ways to greet someone on a Chinese New Year:

Gung Hay Fat Choy! (may prosperity be with you)



Xin Nian Kuai Le! (Happy New Year)

Gong Xi Fa Cai  (congratulations, may you be prosperous)

I guess Xin Nian Kuai Le is more approriate when you want to say Happy New Year.
