Hello my dear friends,
HAPPY NEW YEAR! I know 2010 is still a good couple of hours away but soon by the sun sets, most of us will be out partying, celebrating, and so I am sending you my wishes now 😀
I saw the sea of “wish balls” floating by the waterfront a few nights ago and it reminded me of the resolutions I wanted to make for the coming year. Yes, this time of the year, most of us make resolutions. Some, in all seriousness, that we aspire to achieve, and some made after a few bubblys that just sound ridiculous the next day.
What a year 2009 has been, significant events happened around the world. Inventions, technology, people, our environment developed at lightning speed. We shed tears too, we remembered the great Michael Jackson, the man with a heart of gold and music so powerful he transcends generations with his music and lyrics. For me personally, “Black or White” was the first English song I heard and his music holds a special place in my heart.
In 2009, things got better and better. Gadgets became smaller and mightier.
On a personal front, 2009 was a very exciting year for me. It is extremely humbling when opportunities came my way in 2009. Being able to tour for Stefanie Sun’s “The Answer is 2009 World Tour” and to work on my debut album, and to work with some wonderful artistes (that I will share with you in later entries) is awesome. It was heartwarming to hear 《受保护》on radio and it motivated me to write more and to keep evolving and growing for the many people who came up to me to say 加油! . I made so many new friends who came over here to know me and my music. And to you guys I want to say a BIG thank you.
So here are my resolutions for 2010:
Resolution (1) You and Me
To commit to sharing and opening up my life here on this little blog, and on my facebook and myspace pages. And I hope in 2010, through my music and through my little diary, I get to interact with you, and welcome you into my little world. And I would very much love for you to participate on this space as well. Just write la!
Resolution (2) Scale Mountains
To challenge myself to greater heights in every aspect of my life, and enjoying the journey. (Music, life, reading, and even little things like drinking more water and using sun screen…a million things…)
Resolution (3) To be a GREEN me.
I need to eat more vegetables. YES!
But on a very serious note, this resolution relates to our dear Mother Earth. In 2010, I want to:
3a) To eat only what I need to eat.
3b) Recycle, Reuse, Reduce
My heart pains when I read of how in Asia alone, peoples’ life are affected by polluted waters, disappearing land, climate changes…I will elaborate further my green thoughts in another blog entry. And I hope to find many more GREEN mes so together we can make a difference.
Resolution (4) My Secret Resolution
I have a secret resolution which I shall whisper to you here: To win the lottery. (Haha! Funnily though, I hardly buy it so I am not sure how that’s gonna happen). But I do know many of us have this wish, because each time I look at the sky and exclaim “I want to win toto.” I hear someone reply me in a random corner “ME TOO!”
Resolution (5) Above all…Good Health and Happiness
Above all, I wish for good health, and true happiness for everyone. For YOU.
Sure, life ain’t a bed of roses, and when the going gets tough, I wish you a little penny for luck and a little armour for bravery to take on whatever comes your way.
What’s your resolution for 2010? Share it with us!
