Thank You 2017... You have been GREAT!

Last day of the year is always for review and here are mine based on the resolutions that i set in the beginning of the year... =D

(1) Stay HAPPILY married to Mr Ang

clap clap clap clap... am really proud of myself for initiating 11 'Happi Wife, Happi Ang' activities and even more proud of hubby Ang for participating in all of them so enthusiastically.... really thankful to have you who entertains me and my nonsense so readily even after 8+ years together.... =* ... 

Feb - Zoo Run 

the only not so good point was that we didnt get to travel far this december holiday because school hols and NIE hols only overlapped by 1 week.... had to make do with a 3 day 2 night JB trip ... =S 

(2) Spend QUALITY time with the Chuas and the Angs
Happiness... cos target of 1 activity per family per semester, makan sessions not counted, is ACHIEVED!!! ... sort of... heee 

for the chua, full attendance to Yunomori Onsen & Spa in semester 1 and Halloween Walk @ Woodgrove for semester 2...

for the Angs, we had a holiday trip to Taiwan for semester 1 and a prudential subsidized photo-shoot for the senior angs in semester 2.... 

(3) ENJOY work

the family 

the aesthetic team

i luv luv my RO (left) who is super encouraging and friendly and approachable so was super duper sad that i had to change RO next year .... i also luv working under my SH (right) who is super efficient, super okay to whatever i proposed, so was also super duper sad that she left to further her studies in August ... i must be jinx, both bosses i like left me... =S 

has a project under P and enjoyed working for her lots becos she's so gentle and so sweet and so encouraging... 

Happiness was decorating an art room which i can call my own and given permission to move the furniture around and even to remove those that i dont like .... set up my art reading corner, supply table, decorated my ceiling with paper lanterns ... 

And lucky me got to teach only the P1 - P2 art classes and only 1 P3 class (my form class) ... i somehow managed to siam THE class which was originally allocated to me based on the first timetabling .... phew!!! 

and the best part was that school ends at 1.40 pm for me on 4 day out of 5 on most weeks ... BLISS!!!

(4) STAY healthy

as per EVERY year, this did not happen... stop going to the gym completely in Term 4 ..... but i somehow still manage to lose a teeny weeny bit of weight untill November just for having dinner at 6pm on most days... happy & sad at the same time cos this arrangement was made possible only because Mr Ang had tuition lesson at 7pm almost EVERY weeknight!!! =S

(5) Be GOOD

  • got rejected for blood donation AGAIN... there's just not enough iron in me anymore.... =(

  • contribution made to Club Rainbow to support Natalie's cycling event, Children's Cancer Foundation to support Hubby Ang's Hair for Hope event, Caption Cube to support Agnes, Save The Stray Society just because i got approached on the street while waiting for Joycelyn ... all small small amount... but like the fact that i can donate as and when i feel for the cause... =D 

Am really really happy to find out about micro-volunteering from mx which refers to volunteering actions that can be completed in short, discrete periods of time. It is usually an "do-able, on demand and low commitment action that contributes to a worthy cause.

Micro-volunteering suits my style of volunteering to a T... cos as much as i want to give back in my mini mini ways, i am a really lazy bum who does not like to be committed to any single cause, chore / routine....

so i am super proud of myself to have attended 4 events this year... hit target for the first time.... wahahahaha....

(I) wrote postcards to critically ill children around the world 

(II) made plastic flowers for female patients @ IMH to celebrate Mother's Day 

(III) drew colouring sheets for elderly @ Orange Valley Homes twice... once during June 

spot the longevity god, changi airport, trishaw and merlion by me... =D 

my merlion drawing, colouring by Lim Ah Kim was featured on Be Kind SG FB page... =D 

the second time was during December ... in order to be more productive and less stress about having to draw on the spot... i drew the pics @ home and brought them to the event to outline... =D 

spot my fire cracker, durian, dragon playground, fortune god, baby with a lotus flower and a tsum tsum inspired monkey god & his master, 唐三藏

(IV) I even initiated one CIP activity, baking cookies with APSN students, on my own for the Chuas though only 60% attendance was achieved... =S ...

(6) Stay CONNECTED with friends

yes...i did, i did.... plentiful of meet-ups this year, especially during the december hols.... connected with everyone except 1 (sorry) from 2016 and reconnected with 2 more (hi, bernie and xiao ping) .... =D 

(7) Get Inked
by the time i plucked up my courage to fix an appointment with the tattoo artist, she declared that her appointment is full all the way till she leaves to further her studies.... =S 

 achieved 5 out of 7 KPIs this year.... =D 

You have been GREAT!
