Keong Saik Living
It’s that time of year again, where I find myself counting white hairs (I have two beautiful white hairs, fyi, in the center of my crown and I REFUSE to pull them out) and wishing candles.

It’s been a good AND (quite) bad, eventful past year, for myself and the world.

I tried making resolutions at New Years but I didn’t really stick to them. I think that maybe since I view the world through my point of view, the new year, for me at least, has always been my birthday. So here are my resolutions this year.

All of these resolutions are a culmination of my experiences and things I’ve learned over the past year.

1. Be less anxious overall which I think I can achieve through…

2. YOGA – By practicing consistent yoga breathing and poses
I’ve already jump-started that by signing up for a yoga class at work and the next steps are:
– practicing breathing in the morning for 15 mins (at least)
– doing a series of poses every other day for 30 mins (at least)
– attending a yoga class once a week, at least till my next birthday

3. Actually doing something for the world aka volunteer at a green NGO.
I recently signed up as a volunteer at the Singapore Environment Council (SEC) because honestly guys, the world is coming to an end. We need to try and stop being such inconsiderate and irresponsible jackasses.

4. Re-angle the blog.
Having a food blog has been incredibly rewarding, I am a better photographer and a MUCH better cook. Still, I cannot help but feel that I am SO much more than just food. This blog may be a bit schizo, but bear with me, I will take these next few months to find the right combination of my cooking, eating and my life to share.

Don't worry, cooking is still on coz I got this birthday present from THE best flatmates/friends EVER?

5. Say what you mean and mean what you say
I suffer from the, you-should-be-able-to-read-my-mind syndrome which then usually develops into full-blown passive-aggressive disease. I want to take this year to think about my feelings and intentions before I say and commit to anything, so that I fully know what I mean, and so that the parties involved need not interpret what I have left unsaid.

Resolutions that didn’t make the list:
1. Say yes, less
2. Do Tabata workouts
3. Be less busy
4. Get my eyes assessed/fixed/LASIKKKKK
