Reflection

Last day of 2015. And here I am, quietly and comfortably snuggled on my couch at home at 11.10pm. Boy, it has been such a year. The good, the bad, the ugly, the pretty. But now that I have some time to look back, I realized the good definitely outweighs the bad, and the pretty outweighs the ugly.

Learnt so much about human nature this year. Things that makes me smile, things that makes me frown, things that makes me smirk and things that causes about 1000 snarky/sarcastic remarks to race through my head. 😉 One of the hardest but best things to master in life is to not take anything too seriously. Disclaimer : This does NOT mean to take everything as a joke. 😛 But rather, learn to let go whenever needed, and laugh it off when its warranted. 🙂

After more than a year and a half of no proper exercise routine since I started working, I’ve started taking up swimming again mid of this year. Nothing too high impact like the gym classes I used to go to, but I figured, 3-4 days of 1 kilometer swim per week is a good start. Am super glad I’m slowly shifting my lifestyle back to a healthier and fitter one. Though its gonna be a long journey to get back to how I was 3-4 years ago. Hm.

I’ve also decided to officially start my YouTube channel after having fun creating my trial Christmas cover video. 🙂 If there’s one thing this year has taught me, it would be that life is too short for us to live u to other people’s expectations. Hence, I’m continuing my drums lessons. Planning to get a set of e-drums soon. Also planning to pick up a new language. Still a toss between French of Spanish. Hm. 😀

As we’re entering the new year, and I’m getting to my 30th birthday in approximately 3 months, I’ve learnt that the most important thing in life is to do things that makes you happy. Nothing else really matters. You need to be able to make yourself happy before you’re able to make others happy. And hence, I’ve decided that I’m gonna fill 2016 to the brim with things, activities and people who makes me genuinely happy and makes me look forward to life everyday.

I mean, what is life if you have nothing to look forward to?  😉

Happy 2016!

YouTube Christmas Greeting

So it’s been almost 2 years since I first thought of starting a proper YouTube channel. I never really got to it, mostly due to… *cue drumrolls*…. procrastination. But it was also because I was a little nervous about putting myself out there to be seen. So I dragged and delayed it. Until this year. This year, I decided not to send out Christmas cards. Instead, I decided to do a cover of a Christmas song dedicated to all my family, loved ones and friends. Also a good way for me to test the waters, and see if I really enjoy making covers.

So here it is, a cover of Judy Garland’s ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’. 🙂

Gotta say, its quite an experience. And I do enjoy the whole process of learning the song, videoing it, then editing it up to become a proper YouTube vid. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll do it for real the next time. 🙂

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

I Miss Blogging.

I really do. And it feels good to be back. It’s been more than a year now that I have not been blogging. Let me just put it out here that it is all due to work……. and a little bit of laziness after work… and also a whole lot of procrastination. *sheepish smile*

Hence, my new year resolution of 2016 is to go back to blogging. And hopefully stick to it this time, as blogging is really good for the soul. 🙂
