Auld Lang Syne

It has become a tradition for me to spend the last day of the year looking back at what I’ve done and blog about my thoughts for the year. And it has been a long year. In fact, 2012 is the longest year we will ever get. We have a leap day on 29 Feb and a leap second on 1 July. That’s 1 day and 1 second longer than an ordinary year. Haha.

But before I blog about my thoughts for the year, let me just say what am I doing now. I’m currently at the new Cineleisure Starbucks. I didn’t expect it to rain. So now I’m stuck at the Starbucks which is outdoor and there is no shelter to Cineleisure. Good job DK! Well, at least I have a cup of Toffeenut Latte and a powerpoint in case my trusty MacBook Pro goes low battery. I think I can even stay here till New Year Countdown. (Oh wait, I can’t. There’s no toilet here!!!)

Anyway, 2012 has been an amazing year at work. The foundation we laid last year helped us a lot in achieving the milestones. I’m glad to be working with a great team in the company. And come to think of it, I’ve achieved all the targets and challenges that I’ve set when I joined the company. But work here is never done and we are now looking at a new set of targets and challenges. The sad thing is that my boss for 2 years went back to the Australia office. I always say that I’m blessed with good bosses throughout my working life. She is the greatest boss I’ve ever met and I’ve learnt a lot from her.

Oh hey, I bought a DSLR this year. Haha. Friends who know me long enough will be surprised that I actually bought a DSLR. I always say that a good camera should be one that you can carry with you everyday. Oh well, things changed. Last year, my surprise tech purchase is a iPad. This year, my surprise purchase is a Canon 60D. I wonder what surprise tech purchase will I make next year.

And speaking of DSLR, I think I might be spending the my evening taking photos of the fireworks at Marina area. Yeap, spending my last few hours of 2012 with my beloved gadgets. Let’s hope the rain stop soon.

Happy 2013 everyone. Enjoy the last few hours of 2012 with your loved ones. Have fun and cheers to a great year.

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.

We twa hae run aboot the braes
And pull’d the gowans fine.
But we’ve wandered mony a weary foot,
Since days of auld lang syne.

And we twa hae paid’l’d in the burn,
Frae morning sun till dine,
But seas between us braid hae roared
Since days of auld lang syne.

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

And surely you’ll be your pint stoop,
And surely I’ll be mine;
And we’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

And ther’s a hand, my trusty fier’,
And gie’s a hand to thine;
And we’ll tak’ a right good willywaught,
For 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.

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