At the beginning of January in 2014 (precisely 7th of Jan :P) I decided I’ll try taking a photo a day for the year to capture a moment/highlight/lowlight/food for the day and see how it all looks by the end of the year.
It didn’t take long before it to become a daily habit.
So here’s the write-up to accompany it!
I’ll kick it off with the first picture of 2015 (should’ve changed the hashtag, ah well..):
So I’m not one for resolutions normally but if I had to list a few things I want to focus on for 2015:
- Health / Fitness
- Learn to cook more
Otherwise it’s a continuous adventure to stay happy and be nice to others 😛
Highlights for 2014:
I’ll break these down into subsections~
Taiwan – February 2014 – got to meet my cousin’s daughter for the first time ever :), she’s going to be soooooo pretty when she grows up.
Melbourne – our somewhat annual Melbourne trip – 24+ hours spend driving and we’re still friends 🙂
New Zealand – snows and Hobbiton; scratched off the to-do list!
Thredbo – more snowboarding 🙂
We made an attempt to revive some of the cafe/restaurant visits this year.
Fried chicken is always a winner:
‘The Mandoo’ opened up this year:
Had this so much this year haha:
Finding nearby Taiwan joints are always a plus:
Winter coming along means hotpot!
The amount of Malaysian cuisine consumed increased this year:
So did the amount of congee:
But we can’t forget the amount of times we went to Yum Cha this year either!
It was good to have mum come back from Tasmania:
Great to see some old faces:
It was also good to see Vivid Sydney this year:
Thank you to all my friends who came and celebrated my quarter century with me:
Another 3 seasons (or 4?) of KGV basketball!
“Guys, when you see the cake please act like it’s the best cake you’ve ever seen”:
This guy turned 21 finally:
Dodgeball continued and was very much alive!
A work event sparked a revival for chance to play Volleyball (go AET NET!):
Oh and of course, ONE MORE FREAKING SEMESTER TO GO:
The Low(er) Lights:
You can’t go the whole year without some bad, I think it’s also right to make sure you take the bad with the good – gives some perspective!
The end of Pyrmont Basketball – hope we get to ball again some time:
The passing of a dear family friend:
#1PaD14: when I first decided to start trying to capture 1 moment per day this year I was originally thinking of trying to capture the highlight for that day. I guess we tend to forget that even within short spans of time sad things may happen. Auntie Irene, you've always been one of our family's closest friends. Although I can't say that I recall a lot of memories personally, I have been however, always grateful that you've been there for our family during the toughest times. You have also been there to watch me grow from a little child. It's only right that I'm here now to see you off. Be at peace and thank you.
Certain decisions and possible mistakes made that could have been costly to some dear friendships:
The discovery of my left knee issues:
Overall it’s been a pretty good year. In fact I met a whooooole bunch of new faces this year which is pretty new for me considering the kind of person I am. It’s definitely been a challenge, but a fun one!
I’ve also managed to travel to a few places this year which is pretty rare considering some years I almost take NO leave haha..
I probably need to learn to manage my time a bit better for 2015 because 2014 gave me some challenges with work ramping up and University being brutal as always.
But it’ll be a big year that I’m looking forward to tackling. Completing University, fixing my knee, getting healthy and fitter, maintaining existing relationships and well.. starting a new one 🙂
It’s all an adventure that I’m so anxious to start~ and with that, goodbye 2014 and #1PaD14 (so if you’re still wondering what that stands for.. “1 Photo a Day 2014”. Hello 2015 and #1PaD15!
Oh, before I forget:
OUR YEAR, #SEERED – Go BULLS!!!!
