Konichiwa everyone! I just came back from the land where the most polite people on earth reside. I also got to see the grand Mt. Fuji up close!

20130615-092219.jpgI got some Japanese Befco (Beika Frontier Company) crackers for souvenirs and google translate them if anyone is doubtful of the ingredients.

Goodbye 2012, Welcome 2013!

December 31, 2012

Wow, back from my (long) hiatus – I did nothing, actually. Heh. So many things happened in 2012 and I must highlight the two best. The first is that I have officially joined the teaching force (after, well, so very long) (Alhamdulillah!). The second is that I finally got a chance to travel to Europe (big thanks to the husband, who took me along on his work trip). I’m a happy and blessed girl, I know!

I bid 2012 farewell (ah, the world didn’t end) and welcome 2013 with open arms! It seems compulsory to make new year resolutions so here is mine:

1. To be a better Muslim (and human being);
2. To be a better wife (actually kind of a moot as No.1 over-rides everything);
3. To be a better teacher;
4. To learn more and retain information better; and
4. To travel (some more).

Now, let’s hear yours!

Meanwhile, here are some traveling pictures to share!

I wish all of you had a wonderful 2012 too. So, go sit back and eat 12 sweet grapes as you wait for the clock to strike midnight tonight wherever you are!

Happy new year!
