Merry Riana’s Best Moments in 2011

I remember writing this at the first page of my 2011 note book:

Indeed, 2011 was really a great year.

I always mentioned that success is a journey, it’s not a destination.
To me, success is the ongoing process of striving to become better, to achieve more. It is the opportunity to continually grow emotionally, socially, spiritually, physiologically, intellectually, and financially while contributing positively to others.

When I looked back at 2011, I am happy to see that I was able to grow not only in my business, but also in various areas of my life. I was still be able to have holidays and spend a lot of quality time with my family, get to know many other successful people and learn from them, nurture my daughter and enjoy my role as a mother, contribute positively to people’s lives, especially in Indonesia, and the best part is, I was able to do all these while I was pregnant. Yup, in 2011, God gave me another miracle, a baby boy (I just gave birth, 2 weeks ago) Wow! indeed 2011 was really a great year.

Here are some of my best moments in 2011:
(in random order)

1. Appeared in many National TV Shows in Indonesia, especially to be invited as guest at the Kick Andy Show – the ‘Oprah-like’ talkshow in Indonesia.


2. Extensive Media Coverage at various Newspapers and Magazines in Indonesia


3. Chosen as one of the Ambassadors for Canon Singapore.



4. Worked hard and Played hard with my MRO Team Singapore

Especially in 2011, because not only I was able to do it in Singapore …

 … But I also started to contribute back massively and created an impact for my country, Indonesia

10. The birth of my new born son, Alvian Mark Liu.

I thank God for so many blessings and so many amazing experiences that I had in 2011. And I thank all of you for walking this journey together with me.  I hope what I’ve done in 2011 has brought me closer towards achieving my 30th birthday resolution, i.e. to create a positive impact in the live of 1 million people. Thank you for all the support and friendship throughout the year and over the past years. My loyal friends and followers from my Blog, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
