To new beginnings.

There are some moments in one’s life where words seem like a complete injustice in describing the inherently wonderful things it evokes. That is how I feel about 2012. This was the year I fulfilled my childhood dream of becoming a doctor (a step closer to my ultimate dream of becoming an eye surgeon), explored the world (Hong Kong, Paris, London, Boston, New York, Amsterdam, East Timor, Thailand), lived the most memorable moments (including studying at Harvard and being part of the East Timor Eye Program), and of course, saw my blog evolve in a way I could never imagine possible.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to each and every one of you, my beautiful readers, for your relentless support not only for my blog but for my personal endeavours too. There have been times when my blog had to be marginalised by my primary goals of finishing my medical degree but your beautiful, sweet words of encouragement have been an endless source of light in the murkier times. Thank you also to all of my incredible sponsors and collaborators who have not only provided me with creative inspiration but also instilled so much faith into me. You are all so dear to my heart. <3

Here is to hoping 2013 will be the most sparkling, beautiful, and lovely year for all of you yet! 

Wishing you all the most love, light, and happiness, Mandy. xx
