happy new year 2017

so i'd like to jot down a few lines on the first page of 2017's book. haven't really into this tradition of making the first day of january such a celebration since the past few years, because to me it's just another day and just happens to be the first one. yes i used to blog 'happy new year 20XX' and blah blah, that's all.

i just felt a bit different this year. was it because most people on facebook that i know celebrated new year and posted something online? or maybe because i've secretly declared that i wanted to be more active on social media which prompted me to join the bandwagon, i think so too..

last night, we went out for a dinner as aaqilah repeatedly mentioned we should go to see fireworks, or at least be at somewhere happenings because it's new year. we just told her that was something we haven't done in years. it's almost sounded like a pleading, at least we should go to citta mall she said. since natalia and apparently sufi too were having a mild diarrhea hence we decided it's better not to divert anywhere after dinner. too bad no fireworks display could be seen from subang bestari.

so i thought, it's not really about the first day of january or the moment 12 midnight struck but at least i wanted to give them the feel and opportunity being at those busy places once in a while. probably celebrating new year will be one of those that they'll remember experiencing when they're kids. ain't that something nice to have?

let's start one shall we, i'll post any celebration photos next time on social media, be it on instagram or fb or my own blog :)

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something. So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it. Make your mistakes, next year and forever.” ― Neil Gaiman
