Preface II: Milestones

What has happened since I moved to Bermuda in late October 2005? Here goes:

  • My very first serious brush with "diversity". Met new-found friends from different countries aside from the Philippines and Bermuda: India, Uganda, Pakistan, Canada, US, Kenya, UK, etc.
  • My very first Christmas away from my family.. boo hoo. But it turned out pretty well, my housemates and I hosted a fun christmas eve party for fellow Filipinos and other nationalities
  • Joined the dating scene... yeee heee. April 2, 2006 when my future husband-to-be David and I officially started dating.
