Greetings #001
I think almost everyone is on holiday right now. But I simply want to wish everyone 'Merry Christmas & Happy New Year'. I want to thank all my blogger and flickr friends that have been always supporting me and encouraging me a lot with all your nice comments. I feel really blessed to have such nice friends like all of you. Forgive me for all of my mistakes and if there is any words that I didn't mean to perhaps bother you.

I will leave Jakarta to Melbourne on Christmas night, leaving my husband and the kids. I know it seems so sad. But I will go to Melbourne to give support to my big sister who just gave birth to 6 months premature twins last month. She needs all the supports from the family as the twins are still in the hospital right now. She is exhausted because everyday she has to go to hospital and takes care everything. We keep praying for the twins, hope they are growing healthy everyday. I will back to Jakarta on 16 January, 2010. I know my husband and the kids will have fun together since there are no mommy's rules LOL ... I will make some posting from there and I have packed all my gadgets hahaha ...

Wish all of you a great holiday!! Hope you and your family have fun leaving this year behind and starting a new year with joy and smile :)


Have a safe journey, Lia Chen.
Hope you sis will walk out from the depression soon and wish the twin babies are healthy alway.

God Bless (*_*)

Merry X'mas & Happy New Year :)
