good-bye-2012

2012 was a wonderful year to start and end with. There are a number of key highlights in terms of personal life and work. Starting with…

  1. Marrying my beloved wife and officially bind by law as husband and wide. 🙂
  2. Launching the very first mobile app for CIMB Bank. Embark on this project in 2010 and had finally gone live this year.
  3. Taking my Basic Open Water Course. Yes! I’m finally able to dive and explore the underwater world.
  4. Visiting Bali for the very first time indulging in the beach and spas in that area. Not forgetting my very first experience in Ship Wreak and Cliff Dive! 😀
  5. Not forgetting about the numerous wedding and proposal from the bros in arms. Glad to be part of their celebration to become husband and wife. Pangren, Boon, Vincent, Felice, Dekun and many more to come.
  6. A fun day at Universal Studio and Legoland with family and friends! Themed Parks are really a nice place to indulge yourself in a magical wonderful world!
  7. Spending my birthday with my wife and family in the magical world of Disneyland in Hong Kong!
  8. Launching the new Token for CIMB Bank mandated by MAS.
  9. Spending a great time with friends in the yearly White Elephant Christmas Party and OCS Christmas gathering.
  10. Lastly, making new friends along the way while creating all those wonderful memories. 2012 flies. 2013 will be an important breakthrough for me. All the best! 🙂

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,600 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 4 years to get that many views.

For some reasons, I visited their famous 黄大仙 temple when I’m in Hong Kong. It was raining that day, however there was still a huge crowd. Though I did not really plan to visit the temple in the first place, it’s kind of a fated for me to visit it the at the end of the day. Unfortunately, my Father in law was having a stomach upset and end up not going to Shen Zhen. Therefore, I suggested to my wife and mother in law to visit the temple instead. Firstly, to visit this famous temple and take a look, secondly to get some guidance on the path I am going to take.

As usual, I pray my respect to the gods and follow by 求签. At the end of the day, what I am told before surprisingly appears in this lot that I had prayed for. this lot is only for this year and since this year is already coming to an end, what the lot depict is quite true for me.

Work hard and I will succeed. There’s no shortcut for me in my life, my wealth depends on my hard word, luck and the people I meet that will help me shorten my path to wealth. Do more good deeds and have faith in the path I choose. The story of “Journey to the West” has shown that there will be obstacles in my life (career), however with perseverance and faith, one can eventually reach the destination he/she hope to go.

 

中吉 唐僧取经 第三十五签

天将降任此其人筋骨先劳苦彼身

莫谓佳景来可易贫穷富贵有前因

唐僧,即唐三藏,本姓陈,法号玄奘,唐人高僧,曾往印度研习佛经,十余年后返国,全心致力译经,凡一千三百三十五卷。他取西经的艰辛故事,在民间流传甚广,最脍炙人口的是《西游记》。

这支签,是先苦后甜,凡事要尽心尽力之意。

上天要人做大事,首先要令他筋骨辛劳,心脑受苦,甚至还要挨饿。千万别以为好景是天上掉下来的。每一个人今天享福或挨穷受苦,都是有前因的。

流年:先苦后甜,每一天都有新的挑战。

事业:事业型的人,求得此签,可以放心尽力去创一番大业。

财富:勿急功近利,宜放长眼光,勿贪横财。

自身:常有小波折,心定志坚,可平安过渡。

家庭:积善之家有余庆,莫为无谓小事争吵。

姻缘:遇上有缘人,可在秋后结婚。

移居:有搬迁机会,宜取向西,移民后,有可能会折返原地再发展。

名誉:真才实料,人多敬佩。

健康:多运动,多食蔬果,身体更好。

友谊:不妨扩大社交圈子,大有机会与外国人交往。

Finally, I have gone for my year-end break to Hong Kong. This was my virgin trip to Hong Kong and it was a nice to visit with my wife and in-laws. Spent my 29th birthday in a magical world of Disneyland.

Gone to some of the tourist spot that was filmed on Running Man! It was really nice exploring Hong Kong. Thought it does give me a Singapore “feel” the weather is one of the best thing I would miss.

The best thing in Hong Kong itself is that I had an opportunity to visit my wife great Aunt who is staying there. Visited their apartment and experience their “Yam Cha” culture.

Last but not least the shopping and the delicious Dim Sum and Roasted Meat. That is something that Singapore can’t beat them. In Hong Kong, it’s not only cheap but also delicious!

This marks my last big trip in 2012. Looking forward to next year plans and more big trips coming up. 🙂

Time flies and I’m half way through for year 2012. For the goals and objective listed, I am almost 70% there. However, there is still some way to go to make the remaining 30% fulfilling.

Nevertheless, some new goals and achievements did spring out in the first half of the year. It was really great that I have gotten my Scuba Basic Open Water Course certification. Yes! I’m now able to dive now! Also, I’m already working towards the advance course hopefully in Sept/Oct this year.

The best thing is I have gotten it together with my wife so we can actually go dive when we go for an overseas short trip that has a great dive spots!

Right after I gotten my license, my wife and I gone for a leisure dive in Bali. Just happen that we have pre-plan our Bali rip we make use of this opportunity to go for a dive. It was a great Wreak Dive at the U.S Liberty and Cliff Dive near the coastal stretch.

It’s the first time we gone to Bali and a relaxing one. Unfortunately, things there are not cheap and too touristy. Nevertheless, we still enjoy this trip very much. Shopping, Diving, Cycling, SPA… What more can I ask for… 🙂
