Thank you, 2016. Welcome 2017.

Happy New Year!
2016 was fantastic and I'm sure 2017 will be even better!

Ollie had an eventful year and I'm sure more good years to come!
She bonds with her friends.
She makes new friends. 
She learnt new things.
She is a great visual learner.
She amazes us all the time with her ability of all sorts.
She also teaches me patience and love.
Lots more.

The family grows with love because of her.

May all have a great 2017 and make every little moment counts!

Merry Christmas 2016

Compliments of the season! 
I have to quote Sharon, "You know it's Christmas when everyone starts eating and shopping too much!" 
Totally true I would say! 
This year, we chose not to travel in December and just stay home during our 2 weeks break. Partly also because we've been travelling a tad too much previously.  
We enjoyed the minor works, cleaning and preparing of the house for the upcoming gatherings and guests who will be visiting us in Malaysia. 
We also have been spending time 24/7 together and loving all the moments. Despite the fact that we already spend a lot of time together on normal days, we still totally enjoy this unusual stay-home-vacation. 
Our family tradition of no-gift (but please donate) continues. However, thank you Uncles, Aunties, Kor Kors and Jie Jies for your kind generosity. Ollie is very blessed to receive all the gifts and love. 
Enjoy the festive season and stay healthy!

Happy 2nd Birthday, Olympia.

It was about this time, you were born.
Time flies. Nine months of being pregnant. 
Two years of our lives with you.
We did it, and quite well I must say.
All we really want, is that you continue to grow up happily and healthily.
Whatever else, is secondary.
Thank you for being part of our family.
You bring so much joy and laughter to all of us.
(alright, and now, the birthday girl is demanding my attention, 
end of me-time, end of blog entry).

Happy Month of December, everyone!
