Chinese New Year is officially started today! Happy Chinese New Year! This year is so called Dragon year. It's not only a significant year to all Chinese as we called ourselves Descendants of the Dragon, but also has very special meaning to myself... :)
Before I step into this Dragon year, I want to summarize my 2011 as I think there's no better timing than now to do it. I started blogging about the same time last year. Compare to my dreadful 2010, my 2011 was way better and much more fruitful. I have finished several things beneficial to myself and my family. More importantly, I met my old friends and got to know so many new friends during 2011 and we shared so many precious moments together. I feel so blessed by knowing them and spending time with them. All my friends have been extremely encouraging and inspiring throughout the year. I just don't have enough words to thank them.
OK, enough talking. Here is my 2011 summary. Hope you like it. LOL~~
I am back!! I had such a great time and just don't have enough words to describe how wonderful this vacation is...
As I mentioned in my last post, I met my good friends in Vegas. We went to see Sandy's concert at MGM on Xmas Eve. Sandy's songs reminded me of my high school life, my dear old friends, etc, brought tears to my eyes, as expected. The time I was sitting there listening to those familiar songs, all my memories related to them rushed back and carried me away... After the concert, my friends and I spent our Xmas Eve together drinking and playing games. There was just so much fun! The next day we went straight to another concert at Wynn by Phil Chang & Tiger Huang, who are another two popular Chinese singers. Once again, we sang along with them and had so much laughter.
After spending several days in Vegas, we decided to give ourselves a short break by skiing in Utah. Although it's still a bit early for skiing that the snow base is not thick enough and some places were a bit icy, we still had a great time there! The feeling of the speed is just incredible!!
Can you believe that we returned to Vegas after my ski trip? Yes, we did, and even had more fun! I have been a Celine Dion's fan for a long long time, but I didn't have chance to enjoy her concert in Vegas before 2007. You know what? Celine is back to Vegas! In fact, I didn't really expect to get the tickets for her end of the year concert at the last minute as it's sold out everywhere. But luckily I got two tickets from some popular bulletin board as the tickets owner can't make the show. Of course, thank my dear friend, Xiaoyu, for finding this for me. She is truly my angel!
My words are too pale to describe Celine's concert. Everything was just perfect. She is such a great singer and perfectionist from head to toe. She not only has that god-given voice, but also a professional attitude. You can tell from her performance that she exercises and practices a lot to maintain her voice and shape. All her outfits were impeccable and amazingly beautiful and I just can't see enough of them. The stage design for her concert at Colosseum @ Caesars is also quite impressive and unforgettable.
Do you ever spend your New Year Eve at Vegas? If you never did, have a try. ;) It's so crazy and fun! LOL~~
Last but not least, happy new year to everyone! Wish you all a happy and healthy new year!!
