My New Year 2012

I apologize to my dear readers for my long silence again. What excuses should I give this time?

I better be honest to say that my lifestyle has changed in 2011 since the day both my aged parents moved to stay in the city. They need to live near us, so that we could help them to run errands and take them for doctor visits. I am happy to be able to care for them, now that they are living in twilight years. I thought I could manage well with my only brother around as my only sister lives in London. Hell no, my idiot brother is more or less living in Bangkok every week running his business. So I am left alone to manage all their weekly doctor visits, besides having to collect medicines to replenish their stock like almost twice a week. That is the amount of medicine in total both my aged parents are consuming. How sad for them. I wish they were just eating M&M sweets!

I had never visited hospitals so often in my life like now and this is scary to me. I keep telling myself that we must exercise daily, eat right food and take sufficient supplements so that we can hopefully remain strong and healthy always. Can we all do that?

I have lined up some new plans and resolution for my new year 2012.






- Come Spring, I will visit Japan together with 5 others for over a week. That will be fun on our own going to Osaka, Universal Studios, Nara, Kobe, Kyoto, Mt. Fuji and Tokyo!

- I want to change all my whole wardrobe to wrinkle-free and iron-free clothes so that I can save time & money for the outside laundry weekly. I can wash them myself & do away with ironing! The total sum of laundry saved yearly might be equivalent to buying return ticket to Hong Kong again. Please tell me where to buy iron-free office wears. TQ.

- My Fitness First membership has been upgraded to 'First Club' status like blogger TZ, so I can sign guests on weekends now. Yay! I will join classes & be healthy.

- I am getting the latest MPV next week so that it can easily carry our racing bicycles!

- Our brand new condo has been completed & sold, hope a trip to London will take place in near 2012.

I am in the mood to celebrate Chinese New Year this year, unlike the previous years. I have ordered so much cookies and bought fresh festive decorations. I will go to bank tomorrow to change the notes for red packet -Ang Pows!

  14. So glad to hear from you.. I knew you were busy --and I'm glad to hear that you are doing well financially.

    Glad your folks are near to you now ---but sorry they do take alot of care. We are going through the same thing with George's father --who is 99 yrs. old.... He needs LOTS of care now.

    Take care and catch up with us when you can...
