THANK YOU, 2012!
It’s only mid-December and the BEST SEASON, the BEST CELEBRATIONS are yet to come.
Despite all problems, challenges and daily hassles, counting blessings makes life more meaningful.
Words are not enough to express my gratitude for everything that happened to this personal passion called blogging.
Allow me to press the replay button, and sentimentally share with you once more
the vibrant and happy colors that made our family’s 2012 a kaleidoscope!

blog post : http://docgelo.com/2012/12/02/weekend-at-macalister-mansion/
We commissioned one of the brilliant Malaysian photographers from Penang to do our family photos on the first day of December for an hour of unlimited shots at a very reasonable cost and a week after, he posted these two teaser-proofs on his facebook account. The rest of the photos will be delivered in weeks time.
As of this blogging, I’m also waiting for the result of ExpatBlogs.Com Best Expat Blog Awards
of which my site is nominated and currently 3rd among 13 expat blogs in Malaysia
(blog post : http://docgelo.com/support-docgelo/).
I’m also excited to share my interview and blog feature on InterNations.Org based in Germany soon!
On a more serious note,
Thank you to those people who lifted our spirits during our lowest moments this year.
Thank you to those generous souls who helped us in so many ways during those trying times.
Thank you to my blog readers, followers and fellow bloggers who have been a constant inspiration.
Advance Happy Holidays! A Blessed Christmas And A More Prosperous New Year to all of us!
THANK YOU SO MUCH, LORD ALMIGHTY!
All Glory and Honor is Yours, Now and Forever!

Wow! Year of Dragon might be your luckiest year Doc Gelo 🙂 Wish you more on 2013 🙂
I almost forgot it’s the year of the Dragon; thanks for reminding me, Joey! Tina & I were also born on the year of the Dragon! 🙂
Kamusta ang bakasyon sa Pinas? Have fun & make the most out of it. I’m sure you’ll do with Krissy & your families. Advance Merry Christmas!
We’re enjoying every piece of it, and I thought I have more time to blog but it was the opposite. Hope to see you and your family in Penang next year.
Just let me know when you’re visiting Penang and hopefully it’s a weekend and/or we’re free of work schedules. You know the drill! hahaha!
what a fruitful 2012 it was for you and your family. continued outpouring of blessings for the coming year.
i must say i thoroughly enjoyed each post.
Wow! Thank you! As I posted in fb, we do not have everything but we do have a lot to be thankful for! Happy holidays, Maria!
Your 2012 was indeed really busy – you got to reap your rewards what with all the well-deserved sponsorships that came your way. I’m sure your blessings will continue pouring for 2013 and beyond Doc!
Thank you, Dennis! I hope so too! God bless all of us more! 🙂
Beautifully said! Congratulations on a full, blossoming year and here’s wishing you more love and joy the coming years. Merry Christmas Doc Gelo!
Thanks, Gracious! Merry Christmas too! 🙂
HI, just dropping by to congratulate you on your bronze award at expatsblog.com. Well done, you take some lovely photos! Keep in touch,
Duncan In Kuantan
Thanks, Duncan! Congratulations too for your winning! Cheers! 🙂
i think you are awesome bro.. fun times there! Still based in Penang?
Hi Isaac! Yes, still in Butterworth! Thanks! 🙂
Because you deserve it! Congratulations on everything you have achieved! Stay grounded!
Maraming salamat, Sheng! Maligayang Pasko po! 🙂
You have an awesome 2012! The year is not over yet, buy a lotto ticket and tell me your numbers – I’ll get the same combination and with your luck, I’ll probably break my losing streak LOL.
Sana nga may lotto dito! Salamat, bert! Maligayang Pasko!
Great stories on your 2012 doc! Makes me realize that I need to update my yearender as well! You deserve those awards and this blog is truly a great read! Andami ko pang di nababasa sa site mo! 🙂 One bored day, I’ll definitely scavenge old blogs posts! Merry Christmas!
Thank you, Edcel! Maligayang Pasko din po! 🙂
PS : Punta ako Chiang Mai before the year ends! Solo backpacking ito. Good luck to me 🙂
uy, ayos doc! Teka, are you a member of PTB?
Anyway, Paul of http://walkflypinoy.com is based sa Chiang Mai. Haven’t met him cause he was travelling then, but you can contact him (or I can introduce you online) para you can get tips. Dami nyang alam sa Chiang Mai! 🙂
Salamat! Unang backpacking ko ito (masundan pa kaya? hahahaha!), no hotel, just a guesthouse to share with 6 unknown souls. No direct flights, will cross borders again on foot. Good luck to me! I’m just happy, Tina give me the green light.
Anyway, thanks for suggesting Paul’s blog. Kaunti lang ang kilala kong bloggers e. May plans na ako sa saglit kong pagbisita sa Chiang Mai after Christmas. Salamat! Happy holidays! 🙂
