That Time of the Year Again

When I say 'that time', I meant it's time where we stuff the Christmas tree and its decoration back into its box with a heavy heart and then we sit down with a cup of coffee or tea beside our table and starts to make this long list of New Year resolutions.

I've never really believed in New Year resolutions to be honest.  I've always seen years after years where magazines keeps offering New Year resolutions advice, samples, to - do(s) etc but all this years, I've been telling myself that as long as I strive hard in whatever I do or whatever I want, I would be able to do it.  There's no need to prepare for this silly list.

However, at the age of nearly a quarter of a Century, I've decided to make a small change.  This year, I've decided to make TWO lists, instead of one.  I mean if I am already joining the 'Silly' Team, might as well be the silliest >D   Just kidding =P

One list would be my 2013 Resolution List, the other one would be my Wishlist.  In few of my previous posts I've mentioned that I am already able to cross out some of my Wishlist but I've never really have a proper one so this or next year, lets make everything proper and official which involves me writing it down here.

I try to sum it all out without too much words and more pictures because what they say, a picture is worth a thousand word.  Well okay, mine isn't exactly very picture-ish based but it's a combination of both words and pictures.

First out would be my New Year Resolution!

Click on it to view the full size :D  Cute isn't it?  I like all things cute <3  I mean, who doesn't! Lol.  Well cute or not it doesn't really matter.  What really matters are the words on top.  This aren't my only list of resolutions for the year of 2013 but a gist of it.  There are a lot more of things that I want and things that I should do.

Below, is my Wishlist.  As always, the list is not exhaustive and there are still room for a lot more to come.

This list is slightly different from the previous one.  You can note that some of the thumbnails are the icon of a cherry whereas some are apples.  The cherry icons represents those that I have not done and Apples signifies those that I've already achieved.

So what I want to do is to try to get all of the icons to be change to Apples!

2012 in a 'short' summary is nothing less than great.  I've been to Japan twice in a year (what more can I ask FOR!).  The links can be found here for you lazy beoble <3

One of my close friends moved back nearer to us, from Hong Kong to Singapore <3  And we are emailing (three of us in fact) like crazy to keep in touch!

Another super crazy workaholic motivated talented friend who is going to have her own fashion show next year!  I mean though it's NOT my achievement at all, since she is so low key and humble, I decide to publicize her awesomeness for her <3  I mean, I am so proud of her!

Godbrother winning MULTIPLE art contests!  Again, not my achievement but it's people close to me and their winnings or achievements makes me feel like I am on cloud 9 as well <3  Below is one of the art that he has done for one of his contest <3  Awesome isn't it?  This piece is call "Take a Breath and Release" so if you need any special commissions (paid of course >D), you know who to look out for!

I could go on and on but that would be unnecessary so lets cut down to the last one <3

The biggest achievement that I've done this year is probably creating this blog and writing down all my wonderful memories in the manner and freedom that I want, sharing it with myself, my love ones and of course, all of you.

I appreciate every single word that I've written to myself and also to all of you out there who takes your precious time to read it and share my happiness or sorrows with me.

This might be the last post of this year, but you have definitely not seen the last of me <3

So, for all of you out there who has been supporting me throughout all this time + this coming New Year celebration,  it is not much but I am giving away another two (2) free GSC movie tickets, movie, date and outlet unspecified because it is the GSC Gift tickets that I would purchase specifically from the counter.  So, everyone from West Malaysia can participate and I would send the tickets to you, free postage wherever you are in West Malaysia (and that your State has GSC lol).

To participate, all you have to do is this two steps!

1.  Share my blog on your Facebook/Twitter with your friends (and let me know lol, via Facebook, Twitter or email);
2.  Tell me on my blog comment section below of one (1) Wish list and one (1) New Year resolution!

Like before, I will randomly choose a winner and film it so that no cheating or favourism is involved!  This contest will end on 3rd January 2013 and by 4th January 2013, I will announce the winner in my blog and also on my Facebook! <3

May the odds be in your favour and Happy New Year!
