Happy 2018!

Although our little red dot won’t be the first to receive the new year (the Chatham islands of NZ does), we are nonetheless part of the hemisphere that spins into 2018 first. We use this word because this blog’s all about spinning little yarns for your reading pleasure. This is also the beginning of the third year of our blog. So we wish ourselves happy blogging day too.

And to you we wish you did not have too much of a hangover from last night.

Last year at this time we sent a post out from the Phoenix hotel on the outskirts of Beijing airport. So apt. The phoenix symbolizes a new beginning, rising from ashes and eventual ascendency in the skies. And so we store and put away 2017 to look forward to the new year.

This year, we shall continue with our handprint stories and share with you the journalogs of our journeys. The quarterly newsletter will be in its final year of publish and shall be discontinued, since we’ve observed that there is too much duplication with the blog. We shall also be starting up regular posts on the MRT stations of our little island + especially the environs around them. A sort of local tourism, unfortunately we are not commissioned by anyone to do so… they can pay us though because we don’t mind. Don’t argue with money – that’s our motto. And keep it comin

Have you made any resolutions to keep for this year? Or do you think resolutions are passé?

  2. I make mini-resolutions throughout the year. 🙂 Why save it for just one time a year! I set new goals and dream new dreams when something moves me. It’s always a good time to take action to make life a little better.

    Happy New Year! I’m looking forward to following your journeys and stories.

    1. Hmmmm…. that’s a good point. A goal has to be SMART – specific enough, measurable to know its progressing, achieveable so one is not disillusioned, repeatable so its not a fluke and trackable to know when one’s achieved it!
