December 31, 2018
2018 has come to an end; then again, I need to thank my guardian angels for a
peaceful and happy year. It is my first full year in the life stage of
fatherhood and my son has become my utmost priority, which had me substantially
reduced social outings. Yet each one I could make was filled with quality and
heart-felt friendship. I did have some challenging moments and problems to
resolve during the year, yet insignificant to remember. Life
equilibrium had been reached; I know I am in bliss. Thankful.
Love - I began the year in the embrace of my love one in London. In December
during the Sabah trip, my son knowingly initiated to kiss me (first time) after
months of playing coy. I could feel the love from my friends and family through
out the year. Thankful. Also my family has been staying at an ancestral home of
over 150 years old. It supplies a good environment for
raising baby. Ancestor sowed and now we reap; I will be passing on the love to
the next generation.
Travel - The major trips I had in 2018 were London, Dubai, Seoul, Uzbekistan,
Kazastan and Sabah. Each of them were filled with enjoyable moments with friends
and family. Thankful. I did travel a few cities in China for work too. So far so
Health - My family and I are all healthy. Yet I do notice signs of ageing, an
inevitable part of life... Gym has still been a routine part of my life.
Maintaining good friendship with personal trainers has kept me enjoying the work
out even more.
Career - I changed firm, from a Hong Kong firm to another Chinese firm, yet
still working on IPOs. My initial mandate was to improve the dynamics on the
team, which had already been done so, so my next task would be to enhance the
deal flow and the skill and quality of team mates. Will see how things go then.
Hope working environment can be maintained as harmonious as now.
2018 was a good year for me. Hope it was a good one to you, and hope 2019 is
going to be better.
Love and kindness.
