New Year Cupcakes

Although we are in the 6th day of 2009, the celebration's not over yet. On new year's eve, I was too busy in the office for year-end closing, while others were enjoying their moments leaving 2008 memories behind. I remembered, at almost 11.00 post-meridiem I was still on the road trying to reach home by midnight.

Luckily, I managed to get home as I wished but I was too tired to welcome the new year. Fireworks lighting up the sky in the city can be seen from my home but again, I didn't feel the whole excitement. At that time, getting enough sleep was all I needed. Yeah... I didn't celebrate on the exact time, it was only since the past few days I started to send wishes to friends & relatives. Pathetic, wasn't it? :)

And only last Sunday I prepared few boxes of cupcakes with 'Happy 2009' wording and distributed them to few families of friends, relatives & neighbours. They were so happy & thanked me of being so thoughtful although I was quite late. Time doesn't matter, it's their happiness makes me feel so alive.

To all...

'We make living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give...'

'..our life is full of colors, I hope this 2009 will add more colors to your life...'

Thanks Staci & Shannon... Those cupcakes I made were really simple. I'm still trying to be more imaginative, though.
My friends & relatives did call me up after they've received those cupcakes. When I heard their sincere thoughts besides being thankful, I was like having some sort of fulfillment. And that's why, they make me feel alive. :)
