As the year 2015 draws close to an end and 2016 is waiting eagerly around the corner, I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May the new year bring you (and your family) joy, happiness, good health, kindness, peace and love in abundance. “Business” will resume bright and […]
A friend said he went to a Christmas carol and it suddenly dawned on him that Christmas is about Jesus Christ. Yes, it is the celebration of Jesus’ birth. Taking the Christmas spirit to a broader and more general level, let us fill the air with gratitude, joy, generosity, kindness and love :>
Christmas came earlier for my niece Vivian and her husband Jeremy (and the extended family) with the early arrival (2 days earlier) of their strikingly beautiful baby girl Chloe Anastasia. This is probably the best Christmas gift for such proud parents. Congratulations to Vivian and Jeremy as a new star has been born in their […]
Start your new year resolution now and not wait till next month, but manage your own expectation realistically. Don’t over-shoot and end up giving up earlier as a result of failure.

Don’t get stressed out if you can’t find the perfect gifts for your friends and family. Do your best and don’t let the stress and anxiety rob you of your festive joy. Similarly, don’t focus too much on if you are getting the perfect gifts from your loved ones or not. A Christmas gift is […]
Moderation. Pace yourself and enjoy the festive period in moderation. This is only the beginning of December and we still have more than 3 weeks before the end of the year. Eat, drink and party responsibly and reasonably.
Don’t forget to rest and avoid getting sick. With a hectic schedule of more-than-usual social activities, remember to sleep adequately and avoid becoming sick. Otherwise, you won’t be in a position to enjoy this festive season.
Take some time off. Extra time will come in handy for Christmas shopping and other festive-related activities. I know a few people taking time off to do Christmas shopping. I followed the example and took a half day off this very day. I can attest that it was helpful. If you don’t work, you may […]
