And goodbye 2010.



Wow, was that a whiff of surprise I felt when I just wrote that? Have so many of my previous years been really that terrible?
No, not at all, just mostly 'meh'. I'm a bit of a 'meh' person at times... it takes a lot for me to truly kick back and crack open a beer at the end of a year and say, 'you know what? That year rocked!!' I'm usually much more meh. Not sure why... bit concerning, actually.

But I can honestly say I pretty much loved 2010.

In 2010 I spent my first full year in Hong Kong. I got closer to the friends I'd made, found new ones, and gradually crawled further and further towards a home here.

In 2010 we moved apartments into a place B and I feel totally relaxed in.

In 2010 I discovered cooking. Shhhh... don't tell anyone how great it is.

In 2010 all the members of my immediate family visited us in Hong Kong and, right at the beginning, B's family were here too. Seriously awesome stuff.

In 2010 I started my own business. Within a few months I was busting at the seams with work and I'm currently, well, busting at the seams with work.

In 2010 B and I drove through California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado and Arizona. Hello, view.

In 2010 two of my closest girlfriends got engaged to fantastic blokes. Double swoon.

In 2010 I was awarded a United States green card and became a permanent resident.

In 2010 our family love doubled when we added two little furry critters: Otto and Ted. We carry their hearts.

In 2010 I starred in a movie, a TV show and presented videos for one of the most well-respected media organisations in Hong Kong. So. Much. Fun.

In 2010 I went back to my home town, Sydney, not once, but twice.

In 2010 B and I starred in an American reality TV show.

In 2010 I smiled more than I frowned.

Thank you, 2010. You pretty much rocked!

  6. I think it would be so neat to be in Hong Kong and learning the things that you have learned and see all you see for a bit. That's just cool. I gave you a little shout out on my blog today. :)
