It is January 2013! I have to get used to typing 2013.
The past year was pretty good for me so I am looking forward to this year. As I often declare, I will make each year the best year ever. I welcome new experiences, new friends to meet and new things to learn. I am open to whatever comes my way.
As Yoda would say, “Do or do not. There is no try.”
I hope to learn more craft projects this year. I love the stamp I got from the mail swap and I am thinking of designs I can create on my own. I still continue to do origami as seen from the photo above. I am using it more as a stress reliever rather that to create crafts. 😀

I hope I can do more food experiments. I have not really found the recipe for cupcakes that I can be proud of. I am on the lookout for good cupcake, chocolate cake and bread recipes. I remember that when I went to the grocery last week, there were loaves of bread in different flavors and I had difficulty which flavor to choose. I chose the butterscotch variety. It was delicious. I have read about flavour encapsulation before. It has something to do with adding an ingredient in baking that will lock in the flavor. They say that the baking process can diminish the flavor you initially intended to incorporate. Natural additives can capture that flavor for a more distinct taste and they also provide the wonderful smell in baked goods.
I hope to be precise with the food experiments to capture the flavor I wanted or I’ll end up eating the baked products alone. Oh my!

I hope to visit new destinations this year. Traveling is something I really love to do. We have already booked for Manila this September. Manila is just a stopover of the destination we have not finalized. We have 9 months to prepare. 😀

Happy New Year Kat! I love the quote on your last photo. I’m looking forward to see other countries too, pero baka on 2014 na.
Cute origami! Right now, I need to focus on graduating then I could think about my plans. Haha.
Those are really great goals. For me I hope to travel more too this 2013.
My kids will love you for the origami, and my kids are bugging me to learn how to cook. You have such great goals. Travel is always part of our family’s dream. Hopefully, you achieve your plans.

hahahaha, just the other day, dated my log in emails to my bosses 2012 still….
Haha! It will take awhile before you’ll get used to 2013.
Great plans! I hope you accomplish them all, Kat. I also wrote my plans down, but they are not as specific as yours. By the way, I love how your blog looks. It’s so clean and minimalist!
Thanks, Maan. I wanted to place “blog revamp” as one of my resolutions but I decided to leave it as it is for now. 😀
Happy New Year to you too, Kat!
All the best to you and your family this 2013. Visiting your site gives me the feeling of warmth because of your posts that are heart-warming, creative and interesting. Thank you also for your latest comment in my blog. I’ll never be the person I am today without the grace of our good Lord and with the help of my supportive parents.
Awww. you are so sweet, Farida! It was Kat of http://www.iwriteabout.com who wrote the nice comment. Nevertheless, I wish that you will achieve your dream of going to Palawan.
Sorry about the confusion earlier (*blushes). Nonetheless, my earlier remark about your blog and meeting you in person are true 🙂
I am honored that you thought it was me!
I don’t cook that’s why this flavor encapsulation is a new term for me. Hmmmm that’s interesting. Looking forward to reading updates from your food experiments 🙂
nice plans to do for this year. i have a new blog and this will make me busy for the next couple of months.
happy new year.. wishing a brighter and kinder 2013 to all of us..
Happy 2013! I honestly don’t have plans yet for 2013. Just some goals like saving and getting fit and healthy. I hope you get to achieve your goals too and enjoy the year. 🙂
I love this post. It is so inspiring! 🙂 Here’s hoping that our 2013 will be the best yet.
