Happy New Year! As we crossed over to a brand new year, let’s not forget about our favourite moments we had in 2018. Do you remember which is your favourite day of the year? It could be spending time with your loved ones, travelling overseas and even just graduating from school!
Looking back, one of our most memorable moments here in PanelPlace would be moving into our new laid-back office. Not to forget, knowing that most of you have enjoyed your time with us such as participating in our monthly promotion.
Last December, we invited you to share your most memorable moments in 2018 either on our Facebook or Twitter! While reading through all the 240 entries, we felt how each and every moment was significant to you!
Now, let’s recall on the 8 most favourable moments in 2018 our members have experienced and shared!
As quoted by John Wooden, “The Most Important Thing in the World is Family and Love”. It is no doubt that family plays an important role in our lives and they are our strong pillar of support. Likewise, the majority of our community members (64%) shared family-related memories as their most memorable moments in 2018.
On top of that, we have selected a few family-related memorable entries that have left a great impression.
“This is my favourite day of the year. Nothing can beat the happiness of a proud single mom raising a super kid! #merryxmaspp18”
“My favourite day is on November 12. The birth of my baby boy, Ethan and he is 6 weeks old today! I was a little scared because I had to have a c-section. I have a little phobia of having to go under the knife and all those little fears that first-time moms get. However, when my baby was out, it was the most amazing time of my life! Finally, I got to see his little face, heard him cry for the first time and carry him in my arms. I was speechless. But, I managed to let out a “hello”. #merryxmaspp18!”
It’s unquestionably touching and heartwarming to see such strong family bonds!
Memorable family-related moments does not only restrict to people. How about our adorable pets that always brighten up our life?
“This is the great memory of Christmas 2001. My mother took this picture of me and my joy of my life. My cat Kitty and my dog Buffy. We were all together with each other and that is the greatest Christmas present I could have asked for and received. I wouldn’t forget these times. The presents we received under the tree are a nice surprise but the best gift is being fortunate to be together with ones you love with all your heart and you being healthy, happy and doing good in life. That’s all I could ever want. merryxmaspp18!”
Receiving or giving gifts are one of the best moments that we would always recall when celebrating a joyous event. It could be as simple as making a handmade gift or even preparing a special gift solely for that specific person.
“Merry Christmas in advance! This lovely tiny house is made by my sister. It’s so cute! Merryxmaspp18!”
Handmade gifts are the best!
Jurgen Klopp once said, “Life is Too Short Not to Celebrate Nice Moments!”. Every festive event has its own significance where most of our community members have found joy and memories while celebrating it.
Above all, we have chosen a few wonderful festival events celebrated by members of our community.
“My favourite day was Dussehra celebration the most this year as it was the most beautiful occasion to enjoy. The cheering and celebration of the victory of truth over evil. Enjoyed lots of different dishes and snacks at the Dussehra ground and watched thousands of different colourful firecrackers in the sky. My little daughter has also joined me at this amazing festival. I have spent lots of time with my loved ones too in 2018 on occasion of the festival such as Diwali, Dussehra and Holi. #merryxmaspp18!”
“This is a celebration of the new year-end party in my city, which is a fireworks party… I am really waiting for this moment! It is because we can gather with millions of family who are united in togetherness and happiness. #merryxmaspp18!”
As quoted by Jean de La Fontaine, ”Rare as Is True Love, True Friendship Is Rarer”. With the intrusion of social media platforms, the mean of concerning a friend is made digitally by liking their photos. With everything becoming more virtual, face to face interaction is definitely more vulnerable than before.
We have chosen a few precious moments between friends! #friendshipgoals!
“My favourite day in 2018 is the time when I became “sister” (bridesmaid) in my best friend’s wedding. She is my best friend in my life. She always helps me whenever I am in trouble. I am happy to see her living in a happy marriage life! #merryxmaspp18!”
“After parting ways with each other for years, the year 2018 brought us back together. Something never changes 😎. Here’s to never growing up! #friendshipgoal #merryxmaspp18!”

We have selected a few food-related memorable entries that have successfully convey useful messages across.
“In Africa, everyone in the village wakes up at 5 am to prepare breakfast and food for the day. On Christmas, we would gather together and eat many different kinds of food like chicken, livers, snacks and drinking soda! I can’t explain where we get the appetite on that day but trust me we eat to the maximum! #merryxmaspp18”
“This is the first time our family made Christmas cakes together, it was fun and we enjoyed the moment. #merryxmaspp18!”

“My most memorable and fulfilled day in 2018 would be my graduation day! 😊😊🎓🎓 When I was in high school, I remember saying:”I will never want to be an accountant ever!” And here I am graduating from completing my accountancy program 😇😇 It was challenging no doubt because I never had an accountancy background before I took up the professional course, but upon completing, I must say I learnt that nothing is impossible as long you put your heart, mind and soul to do something!😊😊🙌🏻🙌🏻 #merryxmaspp18!”

"It was my favourite day because it was the day I had the metal implant surgery of my left leg. It was a blessing that I just injured my left leg without any other injuries due to an accident. Without the successful surgery, maybe I will have problems of motion now. #merryxmaspp18”
