2016 inside stories

I slept early morning today and yet, I'm awake already.
Never mind. Happy New Year 2017! 

Annually, I was supposed to blog on the very last day of the year, which was yesterday, to recap on what has happened in 2016. But, last night was a bit hectic. So, ya, I decided to do it today then. 

January 2016

Well, early in January, I noticed that I am growing apart from you. I know, it was not a good feeling at all, but I can't help it. But, I tried hard as if nothing was happening inside me.

Unplanned trip was actually the best trip ever. Right? So, me and my Sumandaks made a surprise trip to visit Aneys and Fenny. What a day! :)

February 2016

My  issue was at its peak at this moment. I really felt that I need a get away from all of this and since I've been longed to go to a retreat, I made it to  Kaingaran, Tambunan.

This month, another not really planned trip of Sumandaks outing - a picnic at Sorinsim, Kota Marudu. I guess, I drove my baby jazz a bit rough that I hurt her. :(

March 2016

Starting of a not so good month for me. After the retreat, I felt calmer but the issue got a bit more complicated. I requested for my personal space, to sort things out. Somehow, somewhere on that time, I felt that, it won't turn out well but I prayed harder.

April 2016

I've asked around, I mean my besties about my issue. Their answers was actually the ugly truth that was a bit hard for me to swallow. I felt like everyone was pointing their finger at me and blaming me. So, I went for another retreat.

I tried doing things out of my comfort zone - as in suddenly joining a run, KPJ color run.

May 2016

This month was my turning point. Despite all the negative feedback that I got  around me, I decided to do what my heart felt like doing so. Thanks to Anty B, for her encouragement words which was actually true.

So, after being in a relationship with this someone for almost 3 years, I decided to quit.

On a different note, another spontaneous trip. This time not with Sumandaks, but with the Wakau Clan. It was indeed great!

June 2016

I started to feel alone in a crowd. I guess that was my reaction to handle a break up for the second time. Not that bad compared to the first one but it did sure affect me. I tried doing a lot of things, making myself busy or trying to sleep early almost every night just to get through the day. Thanks to my Sumandaks and that few someone who was there during my down moments.

I went to my Grade 1 piano exam and I passed! Weehuu!

Unexpected trip again - this time to Beluran, to visit Ronn's school.

July 2016

Picnic time at Malangang, Kiulu. I consider this as a last minute plan as well.

Losing my uncle unexpectedly. 

I tried wall climbing for the first time and it was awesome.Hehe

August 2016

I started doing a part time job as a tutor. Well, it's not as easy as I thought but thanked God, I managed to go through each week. Haha

I went to another OT course.

September 2016

September was my favorite month and yet a busy month. Each week with a different event to attend.

The first week, a wedding I attended with my father just because we  were both invited. Haha
Second week, became a psalmist during Diana's wedding day in which I've never expect it could lead to something new. It's a long weekend for this second week, and I'm glad I was able to spend them with my family.
Third week, I was doing studio recording for the Melodi Kasih 2 album. Thank you Lord for this great opportunity.
Fourth weekHappy Birthday Self!. Earlier, I planned on going for the Retret Panggilan on this fourth week. But I guess, Lord has His own plan for me that suddenly, at the 11th hour, I couldn't make it. 

October 2016

Penang trip with my colleagues! Hehe

Unexpected FB message from someone. Hehe

November 2016

Ronn's Convo trip to KL. 

December 2016

It was a December to remember.  Family gatherings, sumandaks meet up and spending Christmas with someone new.

All in all 2016 was a mix of many events. But, I am very grateful and thankful Lord, because I did get my answer.

May 2017 be a good and blessed year for everyone of us ! Amen
