Memories from 2008

Year 2008 has been a really exciting year for us. Moving on to a new land, learning a new language, blending into a new culture, Mal starting full day school for the first time.

I visited more places than I ever did in my whole life and I was reminded once again, how big the world is and how minute we are. How different we may seem and yet how similar we are. There is much to see, much to learn and much to be thankful.

For the first time, MalMal Our Inspiration has also been nominated at Bloggers Choice Awards.

My sincere thanks to those who had voted. I am flattered and I must thank you for bearing with my writing. One reason behind this blog was for me to improve my writing skill and till today, I am still working on it, learning to write more efficiently and to express my thoughts more eloquently and subtly.

My sincere thanks to you who have walked this journey with me and have followed our story thus far. Your occasional comments, thoughtful advice and simple words of encouragement mean a lot to me. Feel free to drop me a note anytime. I love to hear from you.
