Dear twenty thirteen, it's been good.

Somewhat, I had a good school year; whether it was the love-hate relationship with biology (not a fan of the ecology unit), or my love for history. I'm loving the fact that I'm saying goodbye to geography & physical education, because quite frankly, my mapping skills nor my coordination is top notch. But I'm entering year 11 & 12, my two final years of high school...

Besides school, I've encountered some of the most amazing experiences;

Becoming a HuffPost Teen blogger
!!!!! is all I can say. I cannot believe that some of my work is being read by many, many people!

Work experience at the hospital
Just a year ago, I applied for my work experience at RMH, not really thinking I'd get the placement (since there are only limited places available to students), but I did! Although it was only for a mere week, it really opened my eyes into the medical world; it makes me want to pursue that dream. However, I'm not sure whether I'll make it, since it is incredibly difficult & competitive to get a placement in med school, I'm going to try my best! If not? That's okay.

Charity work
After all these years, I've finally taken the initiative to do some charity work. I raised over $700 for a baking fundraiser. Half of it goes to the UN's world food programme and Stop the traffik. I also hosted a Girl rising screening at my school!

Going to Europe; Paris and London has been a long-time dream of mine.

Favourite recipes of 2013? 
Green tea ice cream
Brown butter chocolate chunk cookies
I declare it as the BEST chocolate chip recipe ever.

Most popular recipes
One of the most viewed recipes this year was my coffee cupcakes! Definitely a pleaser for coffee-lovers.

Blueberry muffins
The best blueberry muffin recipe I've encountered so far. The streusel is delicious and the muffin itself, very fluffy!

So I don't know about you, but I've had a pretty good year.


  1. Looks like such a wonderful year! Your Europe trip looks super fabulous -- I went to Europe this year and absolutely fell in love. Those brown butter chocolate chip cookies look phenomenal too! I just bookmarked them!

  2. Thanks Erica, your Italy trip looks amazing. You must try the choc chip cookies, they are seriously life changing. Let me know if you try it, I will be making your pound cake sometime!
