My Favorite Moments of 2010

2010 was an incredible year. Some of you may even recall my enthusiastic post at the beginning of 2010 with my predictions for an excited and successful year.

Well, 2010 has far surpassed my expectations, and I am still reeling from the adventures and successes that I’ve had over the past twelve months. Yes, my blogging has not happened as often as I would’ve liked, but I’ve blogged about the most important moments, and I’ve had two very talented and driven young women who have helped me out for the better part of the year. Thank you, Yi and Ava!

This year was full of special moments, both on the road and with family and friends. I’m raising a virtual glass of champagne to all of you who made 2010 so incredible for me.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart and best wishes to you all for a successful and joyous 2011!

    Great photos! I am a blog reader and I like reading your blogs. I hope this year 2011 will be another successful good year for all of us. These are all nice pictures. I like the background picture showing the world’s longest underground rivers at Sabang in Palawan, Philippines. I’m looking forward to more of your blogs.

    You’ve truly had such an eventful year. Lots of great shots here. I hope 2011 can top it. Any plans / resolutions, Carrie?

      Hi Patrick,

      Um. Well, the obvious one would be replying to emails and messages in a timely manner. I used to be so good at it! I’ve been so busy I didn’t even make resolutions for the New Year. I actually missed New Year’s Eve because I was sick. I made a resolution over CNY and that is to stop being such a workoholic and start learning how to relax a bit more. With that said, it’s going to be a very tough job. It’s 8pm at night and I’m still working, so I’m going to take my queue here and roll on over to the couch to catch up on some reading. All the best to you, Shufang, and Ahleena for 2011!
