 A few hours from now, 2010 will bid farewell and 2011 will walk in. At this point, it is just fitting to reflect on 2010 and map out a new year's resolution before 12 midnight hits!

Before I present my new year's resolution for 2011, let me share with you first my 2010 New Year's Resolution. Let's see which ones I have achieved, not so, and totally not.
My New Year's Resolution/ Wishes in 2010

1. Exercise! I've been consistent in exercising. Despite my withdrawal to exercising in the gym because of the high fees, I'm able to maintain my healthy lifestyle by engaging in Taichi.

2. Welcome each morning with a smiling face! Positivity rocks! I can't deny that are bad and goods days in my life. Positively, despite these, I am able to sustain a life with positivity. What's the key? Always look on the bright side. Just like how the book entitled "The Secret" articulates, we attract positive vibes by being positive.

3. Less rice, more oats! Less rice is yes. More oats is not. As you all know, this year is the debut of my sojourn with eating brown rice. 

4. Balance school and work life! Since I'm still alive and kicking, I guess I'm able to achieve that great balance. 

5. More time with mi familia through chatting! As always, I never fail to sustain a consistent and compact communication with my family thru chatting.

6. Learn Espanol in Summer. I was so busy this year. Instead of holding a language book, I drowned with academic research materials.

7. Visit another country with mi familia this year. Our family didn't visit any country this year. Except for the fact that my Dad visited me in Brunei. Locally, our family observed Semana Santa in Bicol.

8. Save more. Spend less. I started my SAVEVIVOR Series this year. I must say, I didn't survive in my pilot run. However, if there's any consolation or reward on such crazy idea, I achieved to think and spend smart. Plus, I direct all my attention on my saving goal.

9. Share my talent to God. My love for God has always been there. Whatever talent I have, I share it to others. We only live once. So better make the most out of our existence.

10. Start my book which I intend to publish soon. Ang Bruneiyuki Book, abangan! This is a work in progress. 

11. Invest on a house and lot. Cross fingers. Finally, this year, I've started to pour in my hard earned money in a wise investment. I got a land in Laguna. Oh well, this is the reason of all my "katipiran."

12. Eat healthy foods. Less junk and sweets! Yes to less junks but not so on less sweets. Seriously, with a family which has a history of diabetes, I better manage my sweet tooth!

13. Read more books. Probably, two to three books a month. Minimum of one every month. Oh yes. Too much of reading. Seriously, school work is a pain in the eyes. Okay, I'm not complaining. I just know that after all the hard work, it's time to reap the fruits!

14. Try a massage or spa once in a while. Boo. Haven't tried. 

15. Control spending on DVDs! =) One of my weaknesses. Gotta control this too.

16. Open a US Dollar Account as per mi Papa! As if may ilalagay sa account! =) I didn't open a US Dollar Account. I guess my BND savings should be enough right now. 

17. Check other career options in either Pinas or other countries. I haven't checked much. Let's see then.

18. Pray harder. Act further. Always and amen.

19. Go out on a date? Hahahaha. Another boo-hoo portion of my life. 

20. Be more patient. I've been patient, I guess, for 2010. I just have to double it especially that I'm 3 subjects away from graduating in my post graduate studies.

21. Update my blog. Yes oh Yes. I've done this consistently. 

22. Forgive and forget. With God's guidance, achieved na achieved!

23. Hopefully more singing and hosting rakets. Thanks to God, I got to sing and host more.

24. Think smart. Should I base this in my school performance, I can say yes. In real life, still, it's a yes.

25. Carpe Diem! To God be the Glory.
