Live Sydney New Year 2015 telecast

To all my readers, Happy New Year 2015! May this New Year bring you joy and abundance in anything you strive for. =)

As I waited patiently in front of my television on New Year’s Eve to view the live telecast from Sydney showing the New Year firework countdown display, a feeling of anticipation filled my mind instantly.

Then when the clock struck 12 midnight, there came the firework display! As I watched the beautiful fireworks, it then became a reality to me – the year 2014 has come to an end and it’s a beginning of a new year!

Have I achieved everything I wanted in 2014 – NO. Have I achieved a lot of things I wanted to achieve in 2014 – YES. So that’s why there’s always a chance to bring forward my previous goals of 2014 to be achieved in 2015!

Do you have a New Year resolution? I’ve got many…but the main ones are striving towards eating more home-cooked food, leading a healthier lifestyle, building my career and improving my blog.

If you haven’t made a New Year resolution yet, it’s never too late to make a list! Your resolution need not be complicated. It’s okay to strive towards something big like – becoming a millionnaire by the end of this year, but try to be realistic when coming up with your list so you don’t get disappointed. If you want to become a millionnaire, come up with an ‘action’ plan so that you can achieve this or if not – head towards achieving this by the end of this year. =)

If you have no idea what your New Year resolution should be, here are some ideas for you:-

1) Health
2) Wealth
3) Relationship
4) Career
5) Holiday and Leisure

I hope you’ll be able to trigger some resolution ideas from these five areas.

I had a great New Year’s day just chilling out at home. Interestingly, I also experienced a memorable incident on New Year’s Day. Want to know what happened?

Here’s the story:

When I went to do my Christmas shopping, I bought a carton of eggs. I usually buy the medium sized eggs because they are cheaper than the large ones. After coming back from my grocery shopping, I opened the carton of eggs only to discover that I have one very large egg in the carton. I immediately thought that the workers at the egg farm must have put the large egg in the medium sized egg carton by mistake and I was lucky enough to get a large egg for the price of a medium one.

I took the egg out and compared it to another medium size egg. The large one is twice the size of the medium sized egg.

We had a lot of food to eat on Christmas Day and the days after it so I did not use the eggs in the carton right until New Year’s Day.

So on New Year’s Day, I finally decided to make ‘Nyonya’ style eggs (fried eggs with tamarind sauce). As I cracked opened the large egg, I was surprise to find out that it was an egg containing twins!

I don’t know about what others may think about this incident, but for my husband and I, we feel that it is a good sign for the New Year. It signifies double happiness and double fruitfulness.

While cooking the egg, I was beaming with joy. The egg was so huge that it filled both of us up. I have a feeling this year is going to be a year of abundance for us.

How was your New Year’s Day celebration? Hope it was good too!
