Hello everybody! Happy New Year 2012! Oh how I miss my blog journal… Hope you all are well dearies.
This year (2012) is my auspicious year – The year of Dragon. *Rooooar* Chinese generally believe the year of dragon is an auspicious year. Since Chinese New Year is just around the corner, I'm more or less officially entering the 3rd cycle of the year of dragon. Am I that obvious in revealing my age? Oh gee, my hair has already started betraying me if you know what I mean. *wink*
Many of my friends and relatives are planning to get a baby “dragon” this year. Some are confirmed and some have arrived. How about you married ones out there? As for me and hubby, we decided to have an "express baby dragon" asked for my niece RK to be our goddaughter.
This lovely girl RK has very special relationship with us, or rather me especially. When my sister EK gave birth to her 7 years ago, My late brother-in-law asked me to enter the labour room to accompany my sister instead of him. He said he was not ready to witness natural birth process. Being single at that time, I braved myself and my inner motherly instinct took over. I witnessed the whole delivery process (and I practically cheered EK to breath in and out till the baby came out). The gynaecologist was impressed with what I had done to help a smooth delivery she thought I must have got many kids. I had the privilege to cut baby’s umbilical cord and welcome the baby. What a joy!
Sadly, baby RK hardly know her father. She was 2 months old when her father passed away. Praise the Lord for His kindness. Such sadness quickly came with a blessing in disguise. Soon I was introduced to hubby RM. It was my mother-in-law who spotted me after the funeral and decided to introduce her son to me. We exchanged text, chat, met and immediately clicked and started courting. Baby RK was the reason we spent time together and eventually tied a knot. Isn't it a coincidence their names start from the same alphabet too?

I’m having a great year to start with and I hope this year will be a great for you all too.
