26 Things That Made 2016 Awesome!

Heyyy y'all!!  It's finally the last day of 2016! So for today, I'm listing down all the things I love about 2016 in my last blog post for this year! There were definitely more than 26 things that I truly love but here are the ones that were the most memorable ones~~

1) House visit during CNY

Which was fun! It was also the first time I gamble with RM1 notes hahhaha

2) Stayed in an amazing resort

thanks to my company trip! During which I also got to know a handful of new friends who turned into my favorite people to hang out with #LifeIsGood



3) Year of the Most Alcohol I drank

No kidding. Whether they're new year drinking, social drinking (mostly!), complimentary birthday drink or stress drinking, done that. I personally love Umeshuu, Somersby, Champagne, Sangria, Wine, everything that are made of mild alcohol with mild sweetness. One of my friend loves classics and super strong alcohol I think she has the taste bud of an old man LOL




4) Coffee & Tea

This year I tried lots of different instant coffee but I'm trying to substitute them with black dripped coffee.



 

I have also met up with friends over coffee a couple of times.





5) Attended Nottingham's 6th Annual Bunkasai

During which I got to know the president who took over JSoc after I graduated. We even reconnected a few times after that!
 

 

6) Attended a Japan Cultural event in Shah Alam with my classmates

I love, love the colorful yukatas!

 


7) Traveled to Taiwan with my friends I brought together

The team that made up of my long-time uni friend, my newfound friend & colleague and my bff's sis. So random, I know hahaha

I LOVE TAIWAN!! 
I LOVE TAIWAN!
I LOVE TAIWAN!!

and even after we got back from Taiwan,

8) We still remain as close buddies!

Come this year end will mark our 6 months getting together! I'm so happy :D We've also been going out together pretty often. I even introduced a friend, Yuika who I met in one of the events hosted by the club of my language school. Plus,

9) we even promised to travel together again!

Next destination? Japan! I've been holding off for a while now (because I don't take FAMA loan. That's acronym for "Father And Mother's LoAn" LOL). Can't wait!

10) My camera! 

Because it's awesome and have been with me for most of my adventures!


11) Pokemon Go


12) My birthday




 


13) my first potluck and many get-togethers with my language friends

14) At 26, I realized I don't shy from getting to know new people or getting my people I know together

 (Well, for as long I'm in the mood to socialize.)

I DO think at one point of your age, doing this should not come as a huge issue. I've heard lots of, "nah, my friends won't want to come. they're shy/comfortable in the same group with same people" and truthfully I think that are loads of bullshit. It's either 1) Your friends think your other bunch of groups are uncool and therefore not worthy to be friends or 2) You suck at art of bringing people together and that's really sad.

Perhaps this comes from my mentality of, "Hey you are my good buddy(ies), you'd so love my other good buddies" and "I want to do my favorite activities/travel together with you people of different group and no I don't have issues bringing you, you and you together. You'd LOVE one another (LOL)" and that I make people comfortable of being themselves or my friends trust me so much that they trust my other buddies. 

OF COURSE my friends played a HUMONGOUS part as well. If they were not actively playing their part to get to know my other buddies and making them comfortable, this totally wouldn't have worked out. Yeah, they're that AWESOME!

15) Innisfree

This gotta be the year for purchasing lotsa Innisfree products, especially the nail polishes and facial cleanser! As of today, I have XX bottles of nail polishes and have re-bought the nude and pearl color ones. Totally love them lots! Will blog about them sometime!

16) Cakes

Yum yum!




17) Being financial savvy

 I have to admit I'm quite a shopoholic and spender. This year, I actually found joy in saving and I appreciate having friends who encourage the habit of saving.

18) Nude color accessories

Simply obsessed with everything in nude color such as my handbag, shoes and nail polish! Even when it comes to makeup, I like them in natural hues like different shades of brown and pink plus coral color lippies :)

19) Paid all the installment for my first car just a few months ago!

and then chose not to drive to work for reason 1) I can save more by simply using public transport and 2) I don't fancy driving through the infamous KL traffic jam and while I'm tired. Thankfully, public transport in KL has been getting better despite the recent 100% hiked in LRT fees :/

20) Attended Weddings of a former colleague and another of my long-time friend


wearing the same dress to both weddings, cause I love it LOL


 

21) Went to District 21 (as a team building activity) and had lotsa fun


22) went hiking at a Kancing Falls, and the waterfalls at the top are spectacular!


23) I attended Bersih 5.0

For the first time and felt so proud of everyone who attended! That's the REAL 1Malaysia spirit!



24) Christmas Get-Together & Skybar

More on this is another post soon! 

25) VoguelyVivien.Com

I finally got a domain for my blog! It had been in my to do list in the longest time and I'm happy it's done! Check out this post to find how I registered my domain.

26) You all.
