Apologies! Apologies!! Apologies everyone!!! Yes all I can do at this point is apologize for abandoning the blog for a while now (insert-covering-my-face-emoticon-in-here). It HAS been hectic!!!
BUT before I go into any stories, first let me wish you “Happy Holidays” and a belated “Merry Christmas”!!! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday and more importantly, got the blessings and good tidings the season had to offer. I pray the hope brought about by the significance of His Birth remains with you always, well into the New Year and beyond!
Great! Back to my apologies…
Yes, it was hectic since I got back from my trip to China! Boy… WHAT an experience that was! I really need to give you all the gist very soon! It was QUITE an interesting experience but completely worth all the hassles and pain.
So I got back on the 29th of November and spent the next 2 or 3 working days reactivating all forms of communication that had been disconnected in my absence. THEN I had to attend to major issues that cropped up with my accommodation that almost got out of hand in my absence. Long story involving lawyers and all what not… but thankfully that has also been resolved! THEN the most important one… I had to plan my Introduction Ceremony which took place on Sunday the 23rd!!! 😀 😀 😀
Yes yes! Somehow, (I have no clue how…) I managed to balance the hectic life of a young start-up entrepreneur with a private life many didn’t know I had…. not by any grand master plan of mine but by God’s divine grace! I will tell you the story of how that happened sometime next year after the wedding! Though it might not be the perfect excuse, many of you know how hectic planning a ceremony like that can become.
First I had to sew my outfit! Goodness! That was QUITE a task! Guess I am my own worst client since I always feel it’s not quite there yet. No wayz I am putting myself through that again! THEN I thought the ceremony would be a small one but it turned out to be quite a party with at least 100 guests! I kind of forgot we both came from families that had enough “branches” and tentacles. Phew!
SO how did I end up spending my Christmas?! Sleeping off Sunday’s events! Goodness! What most brides forget to tell you is how stressful it is kneeling down to greet so man people and trying to memorize so many names. BUT it was SUCH a great day and I really cannot wait till March 2013 when the real ceremonies will take place by God’s grace. So please take a second to say a prayer for us… Thank you!
For all those who sent me e-mails, apologies it has taken me this long to respond. I will get to work on them right away. For those asking when the next course will begin, I am planning my time-table for next year. What with the events happening next year, it looks like I’ll be unavailable for at least 6 weeks but I will make a plan that will work best for everyone by God’s grace.
In the meantime, I leave you with these 2 pictures from the Introduction Ceremony. I’ll upload more when the photographer delivers the pictures.
Both of us…. & with my mum… 😀
Have a FAH-BU-LOUS holiday and look out for more of my articles. Hopefully, I should be able to work on all my outstanding articles before the year runs out!
