New year’s eve 2011. Now that’s something worth sharing.
You know, i was really looking forward to Chinese New Year this year. Only because i thought it would be something interesting to blog about. It’s the whole idea of wearing pretty new clothes, visiting friends and relatives, angpaus and whatnots.
Sounded like something this blog needs, right?
Well obviously it didn’t work out. I was practically sick for the whole month of January, which includes Chinese New Year. I didn’t have the liberty to consume whatever i want. From Chinese New Year cookies and snacks to alcohol. Not to mention that i was weak and tired most of the time.
You know what, come to think of it.. screw that. Even if i wasn’t sick, my Chinese New Year would still be boring anyways. LOL! /yaoming
So anyway, i figured that my new year’s eve was a lot more interesting compared to Chinese New Year. Mainly because it was a special date that my sister’s boyfriend chose to propose to her. The proposal took about a month to plan. And it wasn’t easy one since we were communicating solely through Whatsapp.
The plan was complicated and constantly changing. The month of December was filled with mental stress coming from all directions. Up until the actual proposal was done.
To sum things up, i booked a suite at Hotel Maya and lead my sister to think that it was for our family to stay for the weekend. The truth is, the suite is for the both of them instead. She had no idea that her boyfriend will be coming from Singapore to surprise her with a proposal.
My job was to keep her occupied the whole day. It would’ve been relatively easy to do if it wasn’t for that massive hangover i woke up with that Saturday and my sister causing me mental stress early in the morning.
But the hangover eventually eased up when we checked into the suite that Saturday afternoon. The suite was beautiful. An instant mood lifter.

Best view anyone can ask for on new year’s eve
The suite is perfect for couples. There’s a great view and mirrors at the right places, if you know what i mean. I owe it to Kel Li for hooking me up with such a sweet suite ;)
I tried to keep the room as clean as possible by not throwing my things around. After all my stay there was only temporary until Albert shows up.
Nonetheless, i had one of the most laid back Saturdays ever.
And what would a stay at a hotel be if you didn’t go to the pool.
As the evening approaches, we both returned to our room and got ready for our family dinner.
When it was almost dinner time, i left our room to secretly meet up with Albert at the lobby. I gave him the room key and then it was all up to him.
Let’s just say that after that, everyone was already seated at the dinner table with champagne as the two walked in Maya Brasserie. One of which was my sister with a big shiny rock on her finger :)
While we toasted to the engagement, we also toasted to Pepsi for her birthday. New year’s even will always equals to mummy’s birthday. It’s tradition :)
And we all know what comes after a new year’s eve dinner..

I still can’t believe my sister is getting married this year! So happy for the both of them! I can’t wait to plan my sister’s hen’s night. I’ll make sure it has everything she would want :)
