Ok so this year is gonna be a big big year, a personal milestone. I just came back from a week-long CNY holiday and met my gf's parents. This is to get permission to get married :) Things are going great yea :) I managed to talk to dad more this time and learnt a lot about the past. Finally, I had the answers to so many burning questions on why certain things happenned.
Talked to mum also about my career and got some useful advices. I felt I need to be braver at this stage. It is now or never.
Look forward to a challenging year with many things to worry and smile about.
