    I will be forced to make a career change. And while the reasons behind it are not the best, it means I have a huge opportunity to improve myself both personally and professionally.

    Bonjour à tous !

    Ma meilleure nouvelle est d'apprendre il y a quelques semaines ma mutation pour la Nouvelle-Calédonie l'été prochain pour 3 ans.

    Joyeux Noël à tous.

    Merci @David Y. pour tout et je te souhaite plein de bonnes choses. Félicitation pour ta vie de couple ;)

    We're going to Las Vegas instead of visiting my family this Christmas. I should have thought of this years ago! [​IMG]

    @David Y. Congrats on your 7 birthday. I feel your pain. :D :p kidding, all the best to you and your girlfriend, who knows, maybe next year she will be something else. :p

    Yeah I know, that's called putting some pressure on. :D

    Regarding the best news these holidays, probably it's the fact that I get to spend it with my family and loved ones one more year, and that's always something worth celebrating. :)

    As for the year news, probably it was getting the results of a biopsy I did and seeing that it was all ok with me and it was just a false alarm. :sweatsmile:

    1. I became papa this year i.e. on January 7, 2017. In next 15 days, my little one is gonna be a year old. Time flies and he is becoming naughtier day by day.
    2. I could meet you, @Adam Krisko and my mod family. This would be one of my happiest moments of life...!!!

    Happy Holidays!

    This year has been a mix, but there have been some great moments, both IRL and on the forum.

    1. I became an Aunt twice again
    2. London Mod Meet 2017 ... meeting my fellow mods and OP staff. It was a great event. BUT even better was the bag of salted dry jackfruit that @OALEXANDER brought for me. Talk about addicted. That 1 kilo bag lasted a week tops.
    3. This pic of Carl:
    4. The pic of Carl above which leads to my shout out to possibly the best [UNOFFICIAL] Week in Review ever courtesy of @dsmonteiro
    5. Now the forum has been inundated with pics/clicks/shots so it would be amiss of me not to mention teatowelgate

    Best news last year must be the birth of my niece(first time uncle). My sister was only pregnant for 30 weeks so the baby had to stay in the hospital for a while, but all went really well ! She is so sweet.
    Also, the girlfriend of my brother is pregnant, should arrive in May 2018.

    I'm glad my own girlfriend is not pregnant yet haha, I'm 6 years younger then my brother and sister.

    Professionally, at work, all is going really well and I got some more responsible tasks this year. Hope to keep improving the next years.

    My happiest moment this year has to be my graduation day, when i officially became qualified enough to tell people how to live their lives and be healthy, while screwing up my own life simultaneously.
    I became a doctor :-D
