Summing Up 2014 and Resolutions for 2015

My private balcony at the Pousada de Sao Tiago, Macao... my favourite hotel in my favourite city this year.

My private balcony at the Pousada de Sao Tiago, Macao… my favourite hotel in my favourite city this year.

What a year!  What a dream!

I’ve done so much… and seen so much!

I don’t just have one book being published – The Romance of the Grand Tour: Fabled Port Cities from Rangoon to Hong Kong – coming to a bookstore near you in Spring 2015 –  I have TWO books being published in 2015!!

Hahaha!  Yes!  Two!  I won’t tell you what the other one is.  It came as a surprise.

So let me now take stock of 2014…

Let’s see… I travelled and I travelled and I travelled even more.  I suppose I must count that as an achievement.  I saw all of my loved ones, even those abroad.  I moved houses.  I wrote and I wrote and I wrote some more…  I worked at work… but that’s irrelevant.

And I travelled.

And I secured another book “contract” – sort of.

What do I resolve to do next year?

1. Travel more.  I resolve to see more of the world – bits that I haven’t seen before.  And I also resolve to revisit the places I visited which I loved….and bring my Beloved along with me, by coercion.

2. Write more.  I resolve to secure another – a THIRD – book deal.  This time in a genre I haven’t yet been able to pin down: FICTION.

3. Love more.  I resolve to spend more time with my family and friends, both here in Singapore and abroad.  Distance has never been an issue.  So London and Shanghai here I come – again and again and again next year.  =)

May 2015 be absolutely spectacular!
