Holiday Mode

Holiday season is hitting the shore and everyone slump into the holiday mode. Definition of holiday mode : Not feeling like working, everyone is leaving work on time, everyone is slacking off, happy, laughing, talking nonsense. And that's how it is at my work place. 11 more days to the brand new year. Everyone is eager and happy like school kids.

Is it just me? I feel that December is always the shortest month (not February).

2007 is not the happiest year for me but also not the most unfortunate. I believe no one can have a 365 days of happiness. Life if always full of laughters and tears. I guess that's what that colours our life. Even we were helplessly drown by some unhappy events but why dwell in the gloom? If fate is not in our hands but emotions are. Being happy is definitely within our control.

Ok, the old ritual every year end, the new year resolution. Yayy....

2008 Resolution
  1. To travel to another 2 new places (local or other countries)
  2. To have my own Etsy store. My first online store. Must make this happen.
  3. To own a pink laptop
  4. To go on another year with Kin Fai. I don't believe the 2 year itch.
  5. To find a new job and move to KL (not because I don't like my current job but need to earn more)
  6. To own a new car
  7. Work out more, try to keep a healthy lifestyle. Do yoga or gym or whatever. (seriously!)
  8. Save moneyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At first I wanted to write up to 10 resolutions, but considering I had a long list last year but not able to complete 50% of it, so better write a short and easy to achieve resolution. Lets review my old list (ashame ashame).

2007 resolution
(wow a 16 items list...>_<)
  1. Not to spend so much in boutiques. Do not buy more than 2 piece of clothing every month and this includes socks, hair accessories and whatsoever. (err....maybe 3!! Not more than 2!!!)
    WTF WTF!! Arrrggggggkkk. Should never put this in the list.
    Status : Big time fail to accomplish.
  2. Read all the books that I bought. They are not decoration for my shelf. Read at least one book each month.
    Erm, at least I finish one, Marley and me.
    Status : 5% achieved.
  3. Promote the anti-animal cruelty campaigne. There are lots more thing that I could do, like sign petition, donation, do volunteery work.
    Not so much volunteery work but I adopted Nici.
    Status : 10% achieved.

  4. Try manicure and pedicure. This is a MUST MUST MUST try thing in 2007. I'm dying for the French Manicure. I want my hands look like a princess's hands. ^__^
    Forgot all about this.
    Status : Fail to accomplish.
  5. Loose the kgs. Be at 50.
    From 55kg and now 52.5kg. Not bad not bad. Hahaha.
    Status : 50% achieved.
  6. Change the hairstyle. I'm so bored with my long dull hair. I need new look.
    Just forget it lar.
    Status : Fail fail fail
  7. Revamp the face. New look. New look. Learn how to put on make-up from Nai Nai.
    Ok, I learn how to shape eye brow, put on blusher...erm, that's it. Not much drastic difference actually.
    Status : 10% achieved.
  8. Go travelling to at least one country. And also travel around Malaysia. 2007 is Visit Malaysia Year.
    Here's some places that I really want to go:
    -Thailand (Haatyai/Bangkok/Phuket) - Sigh, but Thailand is in such a mess lately.
    -Indonesia (Bali/Jakarta)
    -East Malaysia (Sabah/Sarawak) - Must try Kolo Mee!
    Visited Bali, ChiangMai, Singapore and Ipoh-KL-Ipoh all the time.
    Status : Biggest achievement. 200% achieved. HAHA.
  9. Be a very organize person.
    And again....forget it lar.
    Status : Failed and won't attempt to try anymore.
  10. Must not procrastinate with my work anymore.
    Procrastination is my identity.
    Status : Fail to accomplish.
  11. Throw my junks away. I really need to identify out those junks and chuck them away. Especially my room and my cubicle. -_-
    Housekeeping a few times. Cubicle and room turns from clean to messy a few times. Not really sure whether this consider accomplish or not. But at least I did throw a lot of junk away. Hehe
    Status : 90% accomplish
  12. Be more independent and not rely 100% on family or bf.
    How to evaluate this? Erm, I guess I'm not that 100% independent but I think I still can survive by my own, although a bit struggling.
    Status : Not sure
  13. Save 10K
    From monthly salary = RM0
    From bonus = I hope it's 3X months my salary but haven't announce yet. >_<
    Status : Fail to accomplish.
  14. Buy a white Myvi.
    Failed #13, how to buy????
    Status : Fail lllaaaa
  15. No more impulse buying.
    Status : Fail to accomplish (I'm tire of this sentence ady)
  16. Learn to make more stuff from my recipe book, not only cheesecake but more variety of cheesecakes. Erm, say....blueberry cheesecake?
    Proud to say, I did try to make some new bakery such as egg tarts, cup cakes, double layer cheese cakes etc.
    Status : Accomplished
Result : 3.65/16 (22.81%) accomplished. Lame lame lameeeeeeeeee. Well, that's why I wrote a more easier to achieve and practical resolution. Hope I will get an A+ next year. ^__^
