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.

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.

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.

Happy 8th Birthday DKSG

Almost forgot that today is my 8th year blogging on this domain. Thank goodness I got Timehop to remind me.

8thBirthday

So Happy Birthday DKSG! It’s been 8 years of blogging here. Sometimes I wonder if I’ll carry on blogging. I’ve been thinking quite a bit lately. Maybe its time to switch to video blogging instead. Lol. We’ll see.

Auld Lang Syne

It’s hard to believe that 2015 is over so quickly. They say time flies faster when you are older and I think they are right.

If I say 2014 is an uneventful year, then 2015 is an eventful year. Eventful in the wrong way. Maybe someone upstairs thought that I wanted something eventful. Half of my 2015 was spend fighting off stupid people.

A lot of things had changed at work. Quite a number of my colleagues have left and I’ve transferred to another department. Another will be leaving next month. All because we had a new horrible boss.

I was talking to a friend few days ago and she said that I have some symptoms of depression during that period. Looking back, I think I might be. It was difficult working for someone who doesn’t appreciate what you do. I always said that I was blessed with good bosses. I guess someone upstairs decide that it is time for me to try working for a horrible boss for once.

2015 would had been a great year without this unnecessary toxic in my life. So glad that it is over.

2016 is going to be an exciting year for me. Well, at least I can be sure that it can’t be worse than 2015.

May 2016 be a great year for everyone.
