I so cannot believe that it is already almost end of the year!
Another year has just flown by in a blink of the eye and remember how we were worried about the arrival of this millennium? And yet here we are, still here, on this lovely planet they called earth.
But, where are the flying cars, where are the holograms personal assistants, where are the time machines, and where is planet Mars for rent and living?
Very soon two decades will glide through since this millennium had flawlessly arrived, how jiffy!
Crazy things have happened since. But when do crazy things stop happening in this world anyway?
At one time we had thought that it was a brand new start of the year just preparing to brace it and the next moment we are in December preparing for Christmas decorations! How did that ever happen?
And once again, here we are, the time for reflections and resolutions.
I am done with resolution. One reason because I never kept them. In fact I could hardly remember what they were once a new year arrived. Not sure whether it was the cause of old age memory deterioration or simply champagne intoxication.
I do, however, in this point of time, would like to look back and sincerely reassess what have happened in my life throughout this disappearing year. To me, as fast as it went, much did happen.
Tough decisions were made, options were reviewed, challenging paths were explored, countless research were performed, new ideas were conceived and put into motion, dilemmas were also created, and more important decisions were made.
And not to also mention, heaps of old friends I have known from Shanghai reunited and re-separated, new knowledge acquired and studied, more bureaucratic issues surfaced but fixed (hopefully!), relationship developed and matured, family met and re-parted, promises made and trying to fulfil, and finally, this website updated.
Now, it is time for plans to realign, foggy clouds to clear, and new adventures to discover. It is time to enter 2018 with a positive attitude, wider opened eyes, and riding the waves of ups and down with style, on the driver’s seat, steering it, embracing it and cherish every moments of it before letting it quietly slips away like it has always did.
