The long delayed 2009 recap and the New Year post...

Yes it's long delayed. I have been meaning to post something about the year that passed us by and the upcoming year. But then I did not find time before we rushed to our New Year trip to Phuket and Phi Phi islands in Thailand (I am gonna rub this in quite a lot of times before the post comes to an end :-) ) and then after we came back, i was not quite in the mood to blog. Vacation hangover and all that you see! :)

But yeah, going ahead with the post... 

2009 for me was a year of changes. Some big ones (where I got married and moved to Singapore), some not-so-big but then still big enough for me ones (I quit my job and still waiting to find another one!). 

2009 started with a bang. Nice new years party at a colleagues place, chatting late into night etc etc, usual stuff. And then bang into the next week and our company is in deep shit. Along with it all our jobs too. Yes! Before you confirm, I was working for Satyam. 

And then the following months until I quit were full of confusion and rumors and all sorts of funny stories flying around. It was almost like being in a melodramatic film only that we were the characters. April I quit my job, moved bag and baggage to hometown and waited for a month to get married. Quite a bad month that was, not in terms of waiting but in terms of health. Then came May, I got married, moved here and set up a home here. Started experimenting with food and the like. (I can hear those sighs of sympathy for my hubby!) 

And so went on the rest of 2009. 

Now lets get to 2010. Yippee...

New year always fills me with excitement. The start of something new and the beginning of another year. Makes me feel like I want to start a lot of things, learn a lot etc etc...

We brought in 2010 at Phuket-Thailand. A pleasure trip with close friends and a helluva vacation. Had a wonderful time. Also the beach gets you to start contemplating. About the year that passed by. Flashes of things that happened. 

2009 was the year 

- that I got married. 
- quit my job
- got back in touch with a lot of old friends, classmates and some people I had given up hope of finding.
- had a great trip to India after marriage.
- visited Tirupathy and Kalahasti. 
- met a lot of new people, made friends with a few and learnt that its not that easy to hold onto friendships that you take granted for. 
- learnt that the older you get, the harder it is to find people matching your wavelength
- got interested in cocktails and cooking

And now in 2010, I want to start doing atleast a few of these things like,

- finish a couple of pending certifications
- become an excellent cook
- learn bar tending or at the very least mixing proper cocktails
- visit new places
- learn photography. I realized am quite ok at it and want to get better at it :)
- learn new types of dance 
- start incorporating photos into blog posts.

and the list goes on.......

So that was my long delayed post. 

Happy New Year to all of you :)

Hope you have a wonderful year ahead filled with good health, cheer and a whole lot of happiness.
