Auld Lang Syne

Haven’t been blogging much lately. Been busy. Too many things to do in both work and personal. Too little time to get everything done. But I guess no matter how busy I am, I must update the blog today.

I always say I’ll take the last day of the year to look back on what happened for the year. And I must say 2017 has been an amazing year. It’s been an amazing journey. And the best part is that I’m not alone. The only regret is that I don’t have more time on my hand. Life is short. And as I grow older, I start to realise that time is not on my side.

I don’t know what lies ahead for 2018. I don’t know if I can find time to do all the things I want to do. But at least I’ll try. For if not now, then when?

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days of auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

Carousell launches Smart Listings

Carousell just launched a new feature call Smart Listings. Using artificial intelligence, Smart Listings will help you suggest category based on the photo you have snapped.

Smart Listing process also prompt seller for key details necessary for the item they are selling. No longer will a user have to feel uncertain about which details to include when listing in a new category. The description box is still available for sellers to add further details and stories, but the key details can be entered via the new Smart Listing process.

Together with Smart Listings is Smart Filters which takes advantage of additional filtering criteria to help buyers discover relevant. If you were browsing for a dress to wear to a party, you could filter the women’s fashion category to view only tops in your size.

Carousell now has over 95 million listings worldwide.

Belated 37

I’m still alive. I know I haven’t been updating my blog as regularly. I even missed an update on my birthday. That’s something unusual.

So here to belated 37.

Been busy. Super busy. Most people assume that I’m busy cause there’s someone new in my life. But that’s not the only reason. For some weird reason, I’m placed in charge of a project at work and the launch date was just 2 days after my birthday. Epic. So been busy preparing for that project for the past 2 months plus. In fact, I’m still busy with the project now.

So that’s life. Busy with work and dating. Haven’t found time for other stuff. Been missing my photography. Haven’t got a chance to bring my foldable bike out for a ride. Been wanting to go back to swimming but haven’t found the time. So many things need to be done, so little time.

So many adventures couldn’t happen today
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams swinging out of the blue
We let them come true…..

As I grow older, I find myself beginning to worry. Worry that I might not have enough time left in this life to do the rest of the things that I wanted to do. Am I worrying too much or is this normal for someone at a certain age? I wonder.

If only someone told us that life is short when we were young. Come to think of it, they did told us life is short since the beginning. Its just that we didn’t realised that it is that short until it is too late.

So a very belated cheers to 37. Don’t know if I’ll get another 37 years in this life. But let’s hope its not too late to do the things that I want to do.
