How was your Christmas holiday? I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful time with your family and friends. My family had a wonderful reunion with relatives travelling from Hong Kong. The Kiddos had so much fun playing with their cousins. We sure hope they’ll visit again soon.
With so many things and events happened in 2016, some were great and some were definitely bad, it’s quite a mixed feeling to say goodbye to 2016! On the bright side, there are many great things to look forward to. The key is not to lose hope! I constantly remind myself not to worry about the things that I cannot change, but to focus on how to improve myself in case I need to change and make things better! I always tell my kids to think positive, but prepare for the worst!
On a lighter note. Today, I wanted to share with you the very last recipe and video tutorial for this year: Pomegranate Mimosa. It’s a perfect cocktail to ring in the new year! Usually, mimosa is a mix of fresh orange juice and champagne. I’m changing things up and used pomegranate juice instead. It’s a gorgeous and delightful twist to the traditional mimosa for sure! I hope you’ll give this delicious cocktail a try soon.
Last but not least, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone for all your supports in 2016! I’m truly grateful for each and everyone of you. Your comments, feedback, and encouragement mean a lot to me. Wish you and your family a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2017! Cheers!
