Happy Chinese New Year

Well, it is now less than 3 hours before we welcome in the year of the Water Dragon which is expected to bring the Chinese a great year. It is another celebration which focused on gathering of the family members and friends.

Yesterday I also went to meet with a friend, he's also my sister's friend and the three of us went to Luen Fong Restaurant in Tanjong Tualang. The place is famous for its fresh prawn as well as some other dishes. Then, my family and I also went visiting my grandparents before doing last minute shopping at Ipoh Parade as well have a cup of Starbucks before going home.

This morning, went to church service as usual, before going to my grandma's place for reunion dinner. Now uploading photos to Facebook while watching I Love Hong Kong.

Wished everyone a prosperous and Happy Chinese New Year and Gong Xi Fa Cai!!!

Do You Believe In Feng Shui?

Yesterday, a renowned feng shui practitioner, Joey Yap comes to my work place to give a talk on what the year of the water dragon will bring us. For those who do not know what feng shui is, Feng Shui is a Chinese system of geomancy believed to use the laws of both Heaven (Chinese astronomy) and Earth to help one improve life by receiving positive qi.

Ok, I am not being superstitious, But, I find myself sort of having confident in his talk, well, not to mention that the fact that the year of the water dragon will bring great things and good luck in my life. Since Chinese New Year is just around the corner, I might as well just listen to what this year will bring me to.

Anyway, there are numerous reason that I believe in what he has thought us in the hall. One of the main reason is his "predictions" for the past 2 years were accurate. Another, of course this so call "consultation" is free, and everyone has their right to believe or not what he said. Then, unlike most of the feng shui practitioner where they will ask you to buy some feng shui related stuff and place it somewhere in the house in order to activate the qi, Joey Yap never asked us to do so. Of course finally, since this year will be better year than last, why not believe it. At least, it gives us some confident to go through the year.

The Chinese has a saying "Feng Shui master will con you years", but come to think of it, they are the one who started practicing this art thousand years ago and there are as many success stories on people who practice Feng Shui as well as not successful. However, I believe everything is due to the individual. Feng Shui might not be favourable for one this year, but there are a lot of things for him or her to do to get the favour - some requires minor change, in which majority individual will be reluctant to do, so, finally the problem still be there and when the Feng Shui favours him or her, it will not do him much favour as the old problem will still persist.

So, do you believe in Feng Shui?

2012....New Year, New Goals, New Hope and New ME

Well, this is my first post in the year 2012. Every new year represents new beginning, new goals new hope....and of course new ME. Whatever happened in the year 2011 is already over, but we must always remember to look back at what we have achieved over the year, and what was not.

To many of us, a new year is just another day or year - well, mainly because our resolutions and goals were not achieved most of the time, until we sort of give up. This also means that we have started to feel comfortable with our position and feel reluctant to change - and honestly speaking, this is bad.

Looking back, what actually I intended to achieve last year? One of my goals last year was to gain weight. Maybe I did blog about it at first, but finally I stopped blogging about it, well, I think there is not a need as after I gained about 3kg, it kind of stuck there for like forever, until one day I weighed again at the health centre in my office, and it showed additional two kg, but by end of the year, I weighed again, my body gave the 2 kg away. Anyway, three kg gained is better than nothing. I hope to continue with what I am doing now.

Anyway, my other plans for this year including moving out from my comfort zone.......what do I mean by this? I am pretty sure that I have started to feel comfortable with my current lifestyle, so a change to it is a must....which is why new ME. :D Maybe I can start off by reading more getting more inspiration to blog, and maybe to further studies.

Another thing that I intend to do is to expand my network, and have more outings with my friends and going back hometown less to ensure I have sufficient rest, as I have been feeling tired due to driving back and forth like almost every weekends. I believe that sleep earlier every day would also help to restore my energy level.

So, what are your goals this year and how you plan to go around achieving it?
