2011

Posted in Diary by Alvin on December 30, 2010

I posted a hopeful note for 2010 as 2009 drew to an end. Twenty ten, a year which wheezes by, with changes in pace, life settings, environment and perspective. The first half of the year was practically a routine, the last leg of varsity and momentum switches as I handed up the very last paper of my undergrad study.

I squandered a few weeks being a couch potato, and the rest of it with intense traveling. The later was one of the highlight of the year, traversing 4 countries with a backpack and myself, minimum budget, maximum goodness.

Convocation, I almost skipped because parents and I werenโ€™t enthusiastic about it. I did attend eventually and it was all good. Best of it, classmates meet-up, kodak moments and seeing everyone got through in mortar board and huge fluffy gown.

Then it was time to don in ties, slacks and white coat. 4 months in the workforce cooks everyone up with expectations, requirements and a paradigm shift from students life. But a good set of working colleagues and batch mates somehow deviate the heat to sauna-like comfort. 

2010, in 4 short paragraphs. Literally simple, but overwhelmed by their significance and impacts.

2011, a hopeful year ahead. ๐Ÿ™‚

Respite

That stroll along the old street as it slowly comes alive, carrot cake, Chinese tea, conversation and great company, it has been a while since I last enjoy early breakfast. A relaxing respite.

Post-call, getting my caffeine kick and luxury of unlimited broadband. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sometimes, in the midst of din and hullabaloo, all it takes is a shift in pace to put things into perspective.
