another year end?

I've meant to blog since ages ago but I was too distracted with other activities around me. 
This whole 2011 has been filled with ups and downs....


canon A95 by melmok
I finally got myself a compact camera to replace my old, dying faithful camera Canon A95.
My dear old camera has served me well for the last 6-7 years...  Yes! It was that long. 
My very first camera and I've fully utilized it. It finally said goodbye at the beginning of this year. 

Got myself a Canon S95 with some sponsor from KY. I was eyeing on the new S100 but at the end, 
my emotional (impulsive buying + lack of patiences) got control of my brain. 
I got persuaded by the sales guy and my patiences of waiting for the launch of S100 was running low. 

My enthusiasm of using my own DSLR is extremely low this year. I think I'm hook to my department's DSLR. Who can blame me huh?
own = Canon 350D 
office = Canon EOS 5D Mark2
like .... *duhhh*


food by melmok
Been cooking more this year. Been trying to bake with the small toaster over as well. 
Can't wait to get my hands on an oven or a convection oven. 
Guess with the lack of space and $$, I would be getting a convection oven. 


india by melmok
This year, I got to experience cheap snow, green white mountains, hills and survive the COLDNESS at Manali, Himachal Pradesh. See the magnificent Taj Mahal, Agra and experience diarrhea at Delhi all in India. The whole journey was immortalize in a book.


au naturel by melmok
Went au naturel in a pool. IT WAS NICE!. As usual I couldn't stand the cold and the weather was cold... 
The sun did not come out as it should have!


brandy by melmok
After talking about it for years and delaying it due to timing and worrying about the effect on her after the operation. We finally brought Brandy (the dog) to spay. It's been 2 weeks now, and she's back to her old self. 
In fact, she was back to own self on the 3rd day after the operation. 


I've discovered natural ways to clean and scrub the house and myself. :)
I've been using all natural skin care product for a year now and I'm feeling good about it! 
Even tried DIY my own shampoo.
Once a while, I would use the off the rack sheet mask. 
That's when I realize that I would have break outs here and there the next day.
*need to pass the unopen sheet mask to friends*

The whole year has been filled with turmoil of emotions... good..... bad..... happy..... sad..... 
There are times when my 'chill pill' works and there are times when it doesn't.
Am grateful for all the things that I have now and like people always say, there is always HOPE.
