Goodbye, 2006 - Welcome, 2007!!

In a few hours it will be a New Year!! What have I done the last year that is worth remembering? What will I do this coming year that I will remember? Yes, I oftentimes think I really need a notebook with me all the time so I will keep track of everything I hide, take, save, write, eat, meet, buy, wear, cook, file, and.....and........... Now is the time to reminisce abut the last year..... I know I got a year older and so did my grandchildren, children, children-in-laws, balaes, friends and relatives. I have done what Tatay used to tell us his children: travel for to travel is to get an education. How true his words are! If I didn't get the chance to travel I would still be the sensitive, immature, dependent me. But because of travels I've done, I learned that I can stand on my own two feet, didn't really need somebody's OK before I plunge into a big decision and could solve my own mistakes. My travels taught me that while there are those who have more than me, there are still many who have less, but that having more doesn't always mean happiness.

I've always dreamed of travelling to different places. I hope someday I get that chance. It would be twice the fun if I can travel with my family. How it would be nice to dream big and think about visiting America and Europe. But perhaps, it would be wiser to dream of a place a little closer to home. For now, I'd love to go to Disneyland HK with my family and have a grand time. :)
