I meant to do this post a bit earlier but suddenly realised that it is the second week of January now. Indeed, time flies. In the blink of an eye, the curtain comes down on the year 2013 and 2014 is already here. So It is now time to look back and reflect on the year 2013.
I am always amazed when I look back a year in my life, sometimes it seemed to go so slow and others seemed too fast.
For the first time in my life, I did paragliding and loved it. I will do it again if I get a chance. The whole January was just awesome with the celebration of my nephew’s pasni. That reminds me; he is one and half years now. It seems like just yesterday when I announced in this blog about his arrival.
Coming back to Sydney after an amazing time in Kathmandu was hard but then I really do love living in Sydney. It is such an amazing place and with AS beside me, life has been great.
I had an awesome time going around Australia from Forster, Coffs Harbour, Nelson Bay and Port Stephens to Ulladulla and Batesman Bay. Holidays are always fun and anywhere in Australia, we have so many nice beaches that it makes it even better.
In 2013, I got to see one of my all-time favorite singers Bryan Adams in concert and it was one of the greatest feeling I have had. I just love all his songs and him too.
I also got lucky this year and got a chance to wear a dress designed by my favourite designer Prabal Gurung. Even though it was not from the expensive line he does, I got to wear something which he had designed and took time to create. I hope in the coming years, I will be wearing one of his expensive collections too.
My blog was nominated for the Best Australian Blog 2013 People’s Choice award and it was a great honor. Even though I didn’t win, I was happy to have the honor to be nominated.
I discovered the Game of Thrones series (thank god for internet) this year and I am eagerly waiting for season 4 to come out. If you haven’t already watched it, please do so and I guarantee you, you will be hooked like me.
Unfortunately, I had my car accident in May but I am glad that it was just the car which was damaged; I am fit, fine, and perfectly normal and I thank god for that every day.
We celebrated our second wedding anniversary this year and seems like life is going to be awesome with my dear hubby who I love so much. I still feel like I got married just yesterday, is it normal?
The biggest achievements for us in 2013 is definitely buying our own place and calling it our home; which we achieved with hard work. I am very happy that even so far away from Nepal we managed to do all the puja and rituals and make our home a safe place to live in. I am over the moon that I got my own walk in wardrobe and it is still the heart of the house for me. The wardrobe has been updated from the last post and it looks great.
I also started a Guest post for my blog and thank you everyone who contributed. I will be very happy to post your work so if you are interested please click here so my readers can read your experience and opinions.
I also I tried and tested lots of recipes last year and you can always click here to get some inspiration if you are running out of dinner ideas for tonight.
I am also more into healthy food and exercise and hope I can continue this throughout winter this year to make sure I keep fit.
If you haven’t heard enough of my hubby yet, please click here to read more about his witty sense of humour and mischievous behaviours.
On top of writing for +977 magazine, I started to write for Dreams online magazine and you can read all of my published articles here.
The end of year was crazy busy for us but it was all worth it when AS surprised me with a great gift for my birthday. Thank you baby!
I have to say cruising is one of the best ways to holiday and I will definitely do that any day again. It was a great pleasure to discover New Caledonia this way. How often can you say that you celebrated your hubby’s birthday or Christmas in the middle of Pacific Ocean?
Of course, I started NEPALIAUSTRALIAN’s Blog Award and I am so glad that so many people supported it. Once again a big congratulation to all the winners and I plan to do that for 2014 as well.
Looking back, it was one hell of a year and I am ready and pumped to welcome 2014 with big a smile. Yes bring in 2014. I am going to make this a better and more memorable year and wish all the best to all of you for 2014 as well.
Thank you each of you for making my life better.Hope to have your company in 2014 as well.
Take care everyone,
M from nepaliaustralian
