“Why do we fall, Sir? So we can learn to pick ourselves up,” is the word of wisdoms from Alfred Pennyworth or Bruce Wayne’s butler that I always take for granted. In the end of 2015, I got invited to the Australia Awards’ IELTS test and interview session. I was very sure that I would nail this opportunity, yet unfortunately the result wasn’t exactly what I had expected. At the end, I believe that everything has been scheduled and planned well in my life by my God and the universe. All I need to do is knocking the doors and see which ones are open to explore and from where I will meet new exciting people!

I realize when you think that you want to grow more, sometimes you must move on. This year, the biggest thing that I have to let go is my full-time job.

I believe that I have learned enough in the last 3 years to work hard and seize up my opportunities.

The result of my selling wasn’t as good as I expected but I gained new experiences, learned how do better promotion next time and had good time with my mom and friends.
Few weeks ago, I had a terrible traffic accident. The culprit ran a way with his motorcycle leaving me with a broken side mirror. I was terribly in shocked. As a person who has anxiety disorder, sleeping isn’t the best way to forget a problem. Inevitably, my middle name changed to insomnia that night…Around 2 AM, I received WA messages from my half-Belgian twin, Emma. I knew that she was very busy with moving into her new apartment and PhD research about Alzheimer. That’s why I was fully excited when she contacted me and arranged Skype meeting while being vulnerable that night. They say, you will notice the best people in your life when you have connections every time you need them. I can’t agree more…
That small chat continued to time machine which brought me to beautiful memories from the first time I knew her to the days when I visited her twice in Belgium.
