My New Year Resolutions? ~ Looking back, it's been almost 2 years since my similarly titled maiden blog entry. Some resolutions i have achieved, making room on the list for new ones... the more daunting ones do tend to hang on longer ~ just have to keep moving forward towards a better tomorrow; keep the sense of resolve & devition alive & renewed at each turn of a brand new year ~ that's life for me =)
Getting on to the 1st one already:

1. Get a steady ~ this one has been around forever so it deserves the top spot. My story has yet to begin. Why?
Quoting Joel from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind " Why do I fall in love with every woman I see who shows me the least bit of attention?" ~ this quoted from someone's comment in someone's post describes it best.
"Dont' be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin." "...So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset, is a minute of happiness you'll never get back"
(quoted from somewhere)
~ i try to live by, & hope i'll meet that someone who shares my point of view too, someday soon.

2. Pimp my ride ~ coz i just love fast rides...

maybe not so much like this.... source
What my ride needs:
a. a new paint job
b. shed off that ricer bodykit, go for clean cut & stock JDM look
c. go intrinsic to bring out the revered B16's true potential
d. tighten up its handling
~ the making of one clean & fast stock daily driver =)

3. Vacation ~ to set foot on a continent i've never been to before... too ambitious ($$)? let's start closer to home...
I'd be contented to visit either


this year. Or maybe someplace closer to home still.... Damai Puri? =p

4. Time to give my career a wake-up push. Not that i'm not doing well, just that i could do better. A lot. Maybe i'm just a little too laid back. Semiconductor is one volatile yet demanding field to be in; wafer fabrication is one of 'em sub-fields that ranks top in terms of $$. But then again, there's still the oil & gas industry right up there at the very top. A change of career in that direction would be great. If not, i'll just got to make do with what i am & what i have now; & do the very best. It's the best shot i have to make my 1st million $$ before 30 *still daydreaming* =p .... realistically & probability-wise much better than punting for 1/52 or 1/49s.. haha!

5. Think of resolution # 6 - 10 ~ coz it's #4 is not a good number to stop at.

Generically speaking, i resolve to live a good year & get wiser, not forgetting staying healthy & fit as a horse... . About getting the 6-pack thingy ~ i've got one already... just 5 more to go, haha... just like how mrtoilet put it, literally =)
& lastly, keep my blog alive....
Hey, that was #6 thru 10 already =p
