Instead of the run-of-the-mill question, I thought I do a reflective and selective-events entry. 2010 saw me switching jobs and the learning curve was steep yet fulfiling. I participated in WCS selection, which was pretty surreal for me. xD I was also still nursing the heartache from 2009 and I emerged stronger and better than ever in 2010. And it made me realise sometimes self-deceit is more hurtful than the truth.
Most of my money went to the Greece holidays which I took in April and I still dream about visiting that country again! Because the people and the scenery are so beautiful. Beautiful in heart (for the people) and visually breathtaking (for the scenery)! Best of all for this trip, I'm so blessed to have good company and made friends. :)
I stayed at MBS and went to Universal Studios, courtesy of my new company. Yay! I <3 the people in this company, at least I don't have to make sure I don't step on "landmines" all the time.
Cheers and loves for Vampire Diaries. Salvatore brothers are my kind of favourite TV programme. xD And that said, I seriously need some catching up with it over this weekend!
My favourite films for the year are Inception and UP
Since July 2010, I started volunteering for the SPCA, doing shelter work and sales merchandising. It was great fun and I get to interact with people from different walks of life.
I donated quite a bit to charity, both for Church and other charities.
I started giving tuition after work on every Mon and Thu to get extra income.
I terminated my AXA ILP.
I bought MapleTree Industrial Trust IPO shares. I also attended a financial seminar on ETFs, Index Funds and REITS.
I found a lump in my left breast. Thankfully, it's harmless (which I know before the diagnosis because if it's cancer, it'd have grown to gigantic size like a tennis ball after so many months). And yup, it's still inside me. :) I figured it's a good way to remind myself to be thankful for each day and forgiving to people who trepasses us. I read somewhere that the two important things that will get you through life and people is: Gratitude and Forgiveness.
2011 will see me, changing handphone (It's coming!) and increasing my knowledge and skills in my work and tuition. Pilates and participating in the ALPHA course are definitely on my plate for 2011. I'm going to experiment putting Dwarf Gourami with my marimo.
Other tentative ideas being played around are: Rock Climbing, Japanese Conversation Class, Horse Riding. Well, this all gotta see my finances.
What's continuing: tuition, SPCA, giving back to society, Vampire Diaries.
Increase my financial knowledge and be more hands-on with POEMS.
Being more assertive
Being closer to God
There are definitely more to come. However, off-hand these would suffice :)
