Closing the Chapter on 2023 and Welcoming 2024


In my personal reflections, I'm going to commemorate the year 2023 by recounting and sharing the defining moments of my life, highlighting significant life events that have shaped and made this year truly memorable.

What Made 2023 Memorable: Milestones & Achievements

 Home & Family

We have finally, officially, settled into our new home, sweet home. This, for our family, marked the most significant defining moment of 2023. ❤️


We celebrated the very first Christmas at our new home. πŸŽ„πŸŽπŸŽ‰


We didn't travel much this year but the annual trip to ClubMed Cherating in September was noteworthy. We also went to Legoland in Johor Bahru in February and Malacca in June.


Chinese New Year, Mother's Day, 3-in-1 celebration (anniversary, my birthday & Father's Day), hubby's birthday, first kid's birthday, second kid's birthday, Christmas.

 Personal Development

These two blog posts summarized how I view myself this year - How Embracing Full-Time Work Made Me a Better Mother and My Childhood Dream Job vs My Current Career.


Finally, I've gotten my adenomyosis treated after nearly two years of postponing treatment. This is the second month post ops and life has been great! No more crazy period cramps and heavy bleeding with clots.

Sweet ending to 2023 with 3 scoops of ice cream at Inside Scoop!


What I Want to Do in 2024


POLL: What Do You Want to Achieve in 2024


What I want to do the most in 2024 is to upscale my skills. This is triggered by various factors.


1. Career growth: In order to advance in my career, acquiring new skills is essential for my professional development.


2. Industry changes: Rapid changes in the industry and technological advancements make me realize the importance of staying relevant and up-to-date.


3. Personal growth: The desire to learn new skills can also be driven by a personal need for growth and a thirst for knowledge. This might not be directly linked to my current job but could be a broader personal goal.


4. Passion or new interests: Discovering new interest or passion that aligns with specific skills has prompted a desire to learn and master those skills.


I truly understand that the willingness to upscale our skills is a positive and proactive approach to both personal and professional development. It shows a commitment to staying adaptable and competitive in an ever-evolving world. So, let us embrace this inclination, identify the skills we want to acquire, and embark on the journey of continuous learning. It's a valuable investment in ourselves and our future opportunities.

May our dreams come true and our aspirations reach new heights. May we all look forward to another year of learning and growth! Happy New Year! 🫢🏼πŸͺ„πŸ₯³πŸ₯‚ #NewYear2024 #NewBeginnings #NewYearNewMe #SeekGrowth
