Reflecting back on 2008

The day has gone past pretty fast these days and now it's the end of another year. It was both a good year for me and also a difficult one. Today I would like to share my exciting moments and memories of 2008.


It has been 7 years already that I've been living in other city far away from my family and this year I live together with them again under one roof.

Get on board on one of the oldest ship - The MV Doulos.

Well I have plenty sweet memorable moments throughout the year and of course I did encountered few problems and some painful memories. But I don't want to dwell upon the past or blame the whole year because of some difficulties. Instead I need to learn from my mistakes and the experiences that happened to me. I really appreciate and grateful with the happy moments and the experiences with my wonderful family and friends.

Was 2008 a good year for you?

Hey dawin...

Yea, 2008 was great but 2009 will be even greater - more challenges!! I'm looking forward to do more stuff that I've never done before and pursue my dreams. Realizing it will make me feel alive.

That's great you have a blast too!
