I want to express my gratitude to everyone in my life. Each of you, in your own way, shaped me into the person I am now and guided me to my life path. I am also thankful for the rain after very long dry season, tiramisu in my fridge (yum yum) and the chance to learn to play the guitar from my very own beloved 7-year-old son who just started to learn himself.
