2010 and looking forward

It is always interesting how we tend to look back in the year that has just passed and realized that there are so many things we could have put a little bit more effort and done better, did differently, or wish never done at all.

2010 has been a fantastic year despite all the comments going around that it's going to be another tough and challenging year (it is but I always believe that after every storm, there is a rainbow). There were times when the year just whizzed by but also slow and dreadful moments, whatever it is "in a blink of an eye" we have already stepped into 2011 and to sum it all up, 2010 was a great year!

Great times indeed!

Well, let's put the year behind in pictures!

> Been to the overcrowded, overrated and definitely oversunburnt Phuket

> Been to Hangzhou & Shanghai

> Could have gotten a super duper trooper epic swarm badge here at the Shanghai World Expo 2010

> Been to Bandung, Indonesia for shopping and just shopping

> Been to the magical Bali and had some best BBQ ribs in the world!

> White water rafting at Sg Padas, Sabah

> Currently posted to Colombo for 3 months, and it has been nothing but an eye opening journey

> Diving was in my 2010 NY Resolution list, got it fulfilled when I was in Unawatuna last week... in fact I failed cos I couldn't cope in the water but at least I've tried, and not lovin' it!

> The only sorrow that 2010 brought was the passing of grandma after months of coma. And I also lost a friend to a road accident.

Moving on to 2011, with years of experience in making empty resolutions, I've come to learn that I should just stick to those that is achievable (by spending a bit of money) and not vague stuff like 'be more hardworking and get more A's' - that is so high school.

So with this blog as my records keeper, my 2011 Travel Resolutions and things to achieve are as below:

> Visit the paradise of Maldives (since I'm gonna be in the region till end Feb '11, might as well make it happen?)

> Bungee jump at the world's tallest jump location- The Macau Tower (233m)

> Visit Cambodia & the breath taking Angkor Wat (which is happening in June- highly likely to achieve this)

> Perhaps revisit Hong Kong or Taiwan for a gastronomic adventure

> Tryout for the Amazing Race Asia Season 5! I know it sounds ambitious but it would certainly be a once-in-a-lifetime experience that money can't buy!

How does your 2011 list looks like?
