2016 Resolutions and 2015 Resolutions Recap

Happy Chinese New Year, everyone!

For everyone celebrating, I hope you had an amazing break and enjoyable CNY! If you're single like me and still receiving ang pows a.k.a. red packets, hope you get lotsa ang pows. You still got until 20th February to collect them LOL! On top of that, since it's Valentine's today, I wish you all a Happy V day!! Even if you're single, just go and have a blast!

Like last year, I'm taking my time this CNY to look back at all my blog resolutions and see if I have achieve what I hope to do! First, let's look back into last year's resolutions:

2015 Resolutions Recap

1) Persevere in blogging

Probably the most difficult thing to do LOL. But I managed! YAYYY!!

2) Doing something "more" for my blog

As you know, I have just given my blog a name change and give it a lil' bit of makeover (though I'm considering to change my blog theme again because the one now won't allow my full post to be shown...).

Apart from that, you've seen my OOTDs post (though unfrequent) and recently I'm back doing vlogs! You can check out my channel here.

So far I've posted 3 videos this year and my latest video taken and edited yesterday here ⇓

I still have several videos to edit which you will see on my channel in the next few weeks! Look forward to it!!

3) Get a new camera

Yes, I got a new camera last year, a Casio Exilim ZR-1200. I know I mentioned I wan't to make a review about it but truthfully, there are many settings which I'm still not familiar with!

It is an amazing camera, with a flip screen for selfie-taking, which I usually use when wefie-ing LOL. My friends love this particular feature a lot! I'm using the same camera for all my vlogs too, it's clearer compared to my last camera, so yes, I'm super duper happy with this one. Now I'm obsessed in getting more accessories for my camera (mini tripod, wifi sd card, underwater bag, etc) and eyeing a go pro camera but the latter have to wait because it's so pricey!

4) Travel overseas

No, I didn't travel last year (T___T ) I have Japan, Singapore and Bangkok in my wishlist but last year I was so occupied with many things I decided not to... But this year! I'm definitely taking time off. Perhaps not just travelling overseas, but locally as well. I haven't been to many places in Malaysia like Pulau Ketam or Pulau Pangkor. They're in my wishlist alright ( ⌒o⌒)

5) Improving my Japanese

I still suck in Japanese... While I did passed my JLPT N3, my grasps in the language is still no good. I don't have many chances to speak here *sigh* And Kanji, I'm working on it! To improve my Jap, I'm looking to take intensive classes and maybe find a penpal who'd help me and in return I can teach them English. *crossing my fingers*

6) Learn to speak Chinese dialects

I bought some Penang Hokkien Dialect books last year and yes, I do speak a bit more Chinese with my friends. But mostly we speak rojak language LOL. Rojak means a combination of English, Manglish, Mandarin, Hokkien and Malay whattheheck (>▽<)

 7) Giving more love to my mind and body

I pamper myself a lot LOL. Find out what I did in my reviews tab above (*⌒∇⌒*)


Those are pretty much what my last year resolutions are. My 2016 resolutions are pretty similar so I won't be elaborating much.

2016 Resolutions

1) Persevere in Blogging AND Vlogging

2) Travel Locally & Overseas

3) Continue working on my languages

JLPT N2 next, yosh~!

4) Save more

5) Challenge myself more!

I got a simple challenge which I will be sharing in my next post! Make sure to follow my blog to find out what it is and hopefully, you can join me with the challenge!

Until my next post!
