Here we are once again, at the bend of 2011’s calendar, ready to depart into 2012. This is the perfect time to recall, recognize, reflect and at the end of it all, give oneself a pat on the back, for the year we’re going to part with. In 2011, I was constantly narrowing down friends. When I was younger, I was spreading a lot of attention to a huge group of friends. But now, I am only focusing on particular friends I feel who are on the same pathways as me. Pathways in terms of thoughts and lifestyles. I am thankful and blessed that the friends who mattered to me in 2011, still very much does. In fact, I got closer to some people whom I’ve a feeling, is going to stay in my life for a long time. Hello Edmund! And thank you Yion, Clovie, Xiaoqian, Rifhan, Fizzo, Denise & Jean for being so wonderful. Thank you Katrina for making me look up to you for being the lady you are. Please, continue to be a part of my life.

And then there are opportunities which required a big leap of faith, but in the end brings you only goodness after goodness. It’s like hijacking into a rainbow and crashing into a big pot of gold. Going to shanghai and being away for some time made me
1. Someone who is more conscious of her finances (budgeting skills)
2. Reflect, reflect, reflect about life/what I want to achieve and where I want to be
Also, it made me foster a better relationship with my dad. It’s the first time he sent me a message which contained the words “I” “miss” and “you”.

The word ‘materialism’ has also opened up a whole new meaning and insights for me. I actually think I am becoming a victim of material pleasures, luxurious suites and villas and fancy restaurants. But thankfully, I am also effectively cultivating this particular trait called SELF CONTROL.

In 2011, I took up an appreciation for aromatherapy, an interest in golf and pilates and became a fan of M Scott Peck.

2011 is the year of which I realized where I envisioned myself to be, the standards I want to push myself towards, and received family support. Two years before I will be stepping into the land of THE BIG APPLE - NYC!

Most importantly, 2011 made me love life and my family even more.

Resolutions for 2012:
- Get a good end semester GPA
- Achieve my driving license
- Earn 4k a month
- Stay physically active
-Network, network, network
- Read, read, and read (be passionately curious)
