And another year has gone by just like that!

2 more days and we’ll be in for another start of a brand new year. I think this year went by really fast although it seemed as though it’s the same for every year but personally for me, it does feel like 2009 was a quickie. Probably due to the crazy events that’s been going on in my personal life. I was just browsing through my old archives on this blog and just reading bits and pieces of what i jot down throughout the year. That’s one of my favorite thing to do at this time of the year actually. Just scroll through the stuffs you jotted down before and do a bit of a reflection on it. One reason why i don’t see myself closing down this blog is because i feel a chunk of my life has been written down here. The good and the bad moments of my life. I should really look into extracting some stuffs out and making it into a hardcopy just in case Blogger decides to shut down all the free blogs.

2009 has been quite an eventful year for me in a not so good way that i’m actually really really hap…

I have a girlfriend!

Well in case you haven't seen, my relationship status on Facebook is no longer single. I still find it funny how our lives are all revolved around Facebook whereby if it's not on Facebook, it's as if it does not exist in reality. Although it has only been days since the 'official' announcement on Facebook that "Ronald Cheng is no longer listed as single status" (which never quite make the cut to my wall page by the way), reality is that between the girl and I, we've been together for more than 5 months. Yes, yes i know some friends of mine might find it incredibly annoying and irritating that i may not be 'friend enough' to tell them this news when it happened 5 months ago but the whole decision of just keeping the relationship on a hush hush was really because the both of us just wanted to get through this first on our own without getting 'constructive criticism' on how our long distance relationship will never work out.

So, i would …

Lake Michigan

It's been a while since i've touched my camera but i think these pictures didn't turn out too bad. Anyway, here's some shots of Lake Michigan from Grand Haven's perspective.





It's probably more beautiful during summer time with all the brown sand by the beaches and stuffs but this is the first time i've seen a beach by the lake all covered in snow and it looked pretty in white too so i'm happy. :) 3 more days till Christmas!

Hello from Michigan!

Image
After 2 days of flying like crazy, i have finally arrived in Grand Rapids, Michigan! It's my first trip to the States and everything seems surreal here. Stuffs that i used to watch on movies, the culture, the people, the snow, the weather, all those that was once fantasy and a dream for me are like literally around me right now. It's just crazy. I'm really having a blast right now surrounded with wonderful people who are just absolutely amazing. Although the funny thing i noticed ever since being here though is how the animals are attracted to me. LOL!

My first experience of doing multiple transits and flyover wasn't too bad. To be honest though, the only thing i was really paranoid with the whole flying bit was not being able to make it to my final destination. One more tip, if you are flying and you do listen to music, the 2 songs that i've decided to take it off my iTunes playlist is Jason Mraz's "Plane" and The Moffatts' "If Life Is So Sho…

First white christmas coming right up!

Image
It's going to be my first holiday trip to the States. Filled with excitement and nerves due to the crazy amount of transits but it's all going to be worth it by the end of the day. Where exactly am i going? Well, you'll have to find out soon. :) I'm just ecstatic that i will have my first white christmas of my life this year. Have a happy holiday everybody.

Hello again...from Auckland!

Image
I finally made my way back to Auckland over the weekend and funny thing about this trip back was i never realized how painful your butt can get when sitting on a 10 hours flight? Seriously, my first trip to Auckland wasn't too bad nor was my return trip from Auckland to Singapore but it's just this trip when i flew back from Singapore that made me feel like i had a full butt workout from sitting too long. Stood up on the flight for an hour or so didn't really helped much either cause the moment i sat back down, i felt the sore on my butt. I also bought of one those neck rest support pillow from Changi since some people recommend them when flying long haul flights. I still think i can sleep slightly better with my neck falling back and forth instead of having something to support your neck. At least when you're falling asleep without that neck support thing, you know you were having a good sleep when your head falls from one side to the other that shakes you up. Haha.
