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.

Happy 9th birthday DKSG

Oh hey! Today is the 9th year that I’ve been blogging on this domain. Happy Birthday DKSG.

9thBirthday

I know I’ve been blogging less lately. Been trying to get the momentum back.

PS: I got a warning message last month saying that I’m reaching my 2GB Gmail quota. Which means it took me 8 years and 11 months to fill up 2GB worth of emails. OK lah. I don’t usually get large emails anyway.

Auld Lang Syne

Just a few more hours left in 2016. Feels so surreal. For a start, it certainly doesn’t feel like 31 December. Where did 2016 go? I still remember standing in the rain and taking photos of the 2016 New Year Day fireworks at MBS. Felt like just a couple of months ago.

And yes, I did said last year (and past few years) that I don’t want to take photos of the New Year fireworks again. But here I am, on New Year Eve, thinking if I should make the trip down. It’s really a love hate relationship.

2016 makes me realise that I’m no longer young. I turn 36 this year and its the 3rd time I see the year of the monkey. Seeing the nephews and niece grow up one by one. Time really flies. Someone told me that time seems to move faster as we get older because everything has become a routine. When there’s nothing new in life, time just seems to go faster. Maybe I should go out and do things that I usually won’t do in 2017 so that time won’t seem to move so fast.

If you want me to describe my feelings as I witness the time goes by, I think it will be regret. Regret that I didn’t do certain things in life. Regret that I didn’t grab hold of certain opportunity. Regret that I didn’t try that route. Regrets.

And perhaps that’s why no matter how much I hate going to take photos of the New Year fireworks, I still keep going every year. What if the fireworks turns out to be beautiful this year? What if I managed to take a beautiful shot this year? Will I regret not going?

Or maybe I’ll regret going. Lol.

Even though I regretted not doing certain things (or regretted doing certain things), life still goes on. Maybe that’s the beauty of life. There’s no save option in this life. No going back to a certain save point and restart if things goes wrong. You just deal with what comes along. And treasure everything you have while you still can.

Happy 2017 everyone. May you live this year without any regrets.

36

Wanted to spend a quiet day today but woke up seeing few messages that basically ruined my entire afternoon. OK lah. Not really ruined but basically things that I can do without. Anyway, whatever lah. Can’t be bothered.

Been thinking a lot lately. 36 years is not a short time. And honestly speaking, sometimes I wonder if I have another 36 years left in this life. Maybe I should stop wasting whatever time I have left and try something different. Maybe extreme sports. (PS: I just bought a GoPro Hero 5 Black as a present for myself. Lol)

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

OK, maybe I’ve been listening to Forever Young too much lately. I guess when you get older, you can actually relate more to that song.

Goodbye Funan

Today is the last day for Funan DigitaLife Mall. The mall will be closed for 3 years for a major redevelopment.

Going to miss the place when it is gone. One thing for sure, the old Funan Centre feel will be gone when the mall reopens in 3 years time.

Goodbye. And thank you for all the memories.
