2013 Recap

"I hope 2013 would be yet another great year for me and everyone out there! I wish to travel and spend more quality time with my loved ones despite having a busy work schedule. *fingers crossed* I can manage all these well, in 2013."

Those were the exact words I typed in my New Year post back in 2013

I'm really glad that those 2 wishes really did come true and it definitely was a great year. I travelled (a whole lot!) and definitely spent a lot of quality time with my loved ones (including closest friends!). 

As usual here's a recap of my popular posts in 2013:

  1. What I Wore: Working the Essentials
  2. What I Wore: Adila Long Launch
  3. What I Wore: Rizalman Haute Couture 2013
  4. Fashion: Fashion Valet for Downy Mystique
  5. Travel {Photos}: Road Trip to Ipoh

The highlight of 2013 was definitely getting proposed to by J in Paris (Yes, I'm engaged! If you follow me on Instagram you would have known this by now)  with the view of the Eiffel Tower. I cannot think of any other perfect way to be proposed to. 

Other than that I also had the opportunity to travel to

LondonParisJakartaBangkokRomeVenice, Milan, Barcelona, Madrid, Monte Carlo and Hua Hin in 2013 both for pleasure and work. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought of going to some of these places. 

Not only that, I also got promoted to Head Buyer position at FashionValet.com in 2013 and gained so much work experience within that year. It is also the year I've decided to heavy heartedly quit my dream job as a Head Buyer because I am relocating back to Melbourne this year. There were definitely lots of challenges throughout the year but I'm glad I managed to pull through. In terms of photography as well, I think I've definitely progressed in this department as I've recently gotten approach to do photo shoots for events and I cannot express how happy I am :) I'm truly humbled by your comments on my photography as I have so much more to learn. 

Here's to hoping that 2014 will be an even better year! I wish to be able to grow more career wise and also be able to plan an amazing wedding with J. 

What do you plan to achieve this year?
