1st encounter in 2010

hmnnn... My 2011 started with an email from an unknown. Nevertheless it is a good start, a sign that 2011 is an interesting year. Soon one month of 2011 will be gone and a new year (according to Chinese lunar calendar), is coming.

In 2010, I lost my fang. In 2011, I am buying a fake fang.

2010 was said to be bad for me. It was not too bad. I can't deny that 2010 was full of spices and fragrances.
2010 was full of travel, and much less work than usual. 8 months without working, not complaining about it.

The year started with the best family gathering since 10 years ago. Finally all of us be able to celebrate Chinese New Year together. Coincidentally CNY 2010 fell on Valentines Day.


Along with all woman around the world, I celebrated my birthday on Women's day in TAIWAN!! Sure I am going back to Taiwan again, woohoo!!

1st time experience in Taiwan:
~ experience another kind of seismic wave, the vibration of earthquake
~ shower naked with so many women in a hot spring pool.
~ met sakura flower


I am Sarawakian for so many years, but this year is my 1st time to long house. It is very loooooooooooooong~~

It is a shame to say this is the 1st time I get to celebrate Gawai (Harvest Festival), but not in long house. Just a normal village house in Kuching. I had the best time because 1st time 'mandi sungai' (swim in river). Coooooooooool~~~

And Sabah~~~ 1st time join a trip with photographers. It is different when going out with photographers, because they actually paused for photos. Not rushing to go anywhere. It was amazing to be able to witness lifestyle of Bajau and Bajau Laut. Interestiiiiiiiiiiiiing~~

Finally, presenting the best photo of the year!!!

2010 is a year of gain and loss. We will forever remember you...

And it was the 1st time I woke up at the last second of 2010, to wave a goodbye to year 2010, hello to a new year, 2011....
