A 2012 Photoblog in Review! Jyunbug-style!

While I did not garner the attention of a certain Korean fellow with a catchy tune and crazy dance style in 2012, my year was just a fun and I would not go back and change a thing! As I look back at all the things I’ve done, it helps that I’ve been able to capture it all in my blog and Facebook page. I can look back and honestly say, it was a fantastic year and I had a blast! What’s even better is that it looks like 2013 could be full of challenging and unforgettable moments and I can’t wait for it to begin…

Surprisingly one of the best airline meals I’ve ever had. Beef with Asparagus. Shout out to Cathay Pacific, they treat you well.

As you can see for me 2012 was an awesome year. I managed to achieve a lot of goals, fulfill some bucket list moments and eat some tasty stuff which will be hard to top but I will try to better myself in all aspects of life in 2013. So here’s to better moments to come and wishing everyone a prosperous and joyful New Year! Cheers!

  1. What a fabulous year! Hope 2013 is treating you well so far 🙂 What are the travel plans for the upcoming year?

    • Well funny you should mention that. I’ll post it soon but for you guys I’ll let you know that we will be heading out to Japan and Hong Kong again in late march to catch the cherry blossom in Tokyo and then HK to round out our trip. Are you guys already in Hong Kong?

      • Yip, we arrived in early December, straight into work and setting up a new apartment. Its going really well! We’d love to catch up with you on your way through Hong Kong – we could go out to eat!!!

        The cherry blossoms in Tokyo will be utterly incredible. The season in Korea is our absolute top memory from our time there 🙂

      • that would be awesome! I will let you know when we arrive in HK. In the meantime if you get stuck for something interesting to eat or do in Hong Kong let me know or check out places I ate at when I was there last year on my blog. Cheers!
