2012 in review…

2012 is over in a blink of an eye!
I started a bucket list in 2010 and slowly added on what I want to do in life…
I didn’t really set out with a lot of resolution, wish lists or goals.
I only did one thing: that was to set my password as “Determination” so I can remember it every single day or my life and cultivate that attitude.

Anyways, here a small recap of my entire 2012:

January 2012
Met a local legend and we chatted for awhile.
It was nice as he shared some tips with me on how to go about achieving my ambition:

Celebrated my friend’s doggie’s birthday!
It was my first time attending a doggie birthday celebration!
And Of course, I took the chance to capture some cute doggie photos of Nini~

Febuary 2012
NUS Excellence Service Award 2011 Ceremony
I was awarded with a Excellence Service Advocate Award by NUS.

We were also entertained by the funny Chua En Lai!
Attended NYP’s 15th Graduate Alumni Dinner!!
Met up with ex-schoolmates!
February also marks the start of a new semester at UniSIM where I attended an awesome module that talks about video and film production:
I wrote an entire blog on this module. 
Our website and blog has also been selected to be featured in the school’s website.
March 2012
I had helped a colleague to draw out a very simple design to be printed on their freebie for Openhouse and I was very excited on it’s arrival as it was the 2nd thing that actually came out as a real product from my work!!
Met my favourite singer!
And got all my albums signed. YESSSSSSSS~~~~~
Her songs helped me through many dark moments of my life~
April 2012
Watched my life’s first musical.
Love it a lot!!!
Went to see the Titanic Exhibition myself..
I had some affinity with the ship, really.. 
I went to Mystic Aquarium in 2006 and saw their exhibit there…
Mystic Exploration is the home of Titanic exploration so a lot of exhibits I have seen there were also displayed here in Singapore, yet the Singapore Exhibition told a better story than the one in USA…
This is my most favourite fringe activity:
Silhouette Paper Cutting
Does it look like my side profile?
May 2012
I went for a renewal course for my first aid and I once again got my license!
This time, I also have acheived my AED license!
March/ April / May / June 2012
Throughout the 3 months I was busy with the film production module and the project.
This module actually took us to some very cool places, including this aviation hangar at Seletar:
I finally finished the module and I wrote a reflection of it here:

June 2012
My neighbourhood blocks turned albino~
Which I totally didn’t like it!!
It just totally ruins the British “red brick” feel~
It also ruins the beauty of my photos, really!
