Work - Much busy and lots to learn. The year ended with well, though some emotion was caught off guard.
Baking @ Home - Panasonic Bread maker is my good friend. With very minimised failure rate, I will have my bread ready by Monday. To share with my colleague as Monday breakfast, a good start of the week.
I didn't explore many recipe this year. Continue making my bread loaf. Contributed a few recipe to the facebook community too.

Phillips Pressure Cooker has been my best companion. As well Cosway's Magic Cooker. Both serve well for slow and long soup cooking, and porridge meal.
I have even experimented baking a cake in my pressure cooker. Joined their facebook community of Phillips Pressure Cooking and contributed too.

Our jackfuit was rather a disappointment, as the soil had been too wet. Causing the fruit wasn't able to sustain long on the tree. It cracked open even before it ripe.

Exercises - Reduced outdoor cycling significantly this year. Signed up 2 events this year, neither one I attended. What a failure. Mood and feel has quite been disturbed this year, due to an unhappy incident in Taiwan earlier the year. Disappointment continued with a group of so called friends (past tensed).
Signed up gym with passport entry with Fitness First. Indoor cycling (RPM), Zumba and Yoga classes had been my recent companion.

Friends - Not many gathering this year. Thanks to someone's wedding, that allowed us to have a mini-gathering.

Greatest personal achievement of the year! - Turned my unnecessary stuffs into cash! With Carousell. Frankly, I have been procrastinating this for many years. Always wanted to sell or donate my stuffs to the "needy". I have been doubtful for some recycling event, if they are able to give away my pre-loved item to someone needy.
Thanks for the launch and hit of Carousell app. I was influenced by a friend who were able to turned her very old handbags into cash. I finally took a step to clear away some of my pre-loved items at home. It was indeed great experience, the accomplishment felt when I was able to clear out stuffs, and turn it to someone's excitement instead.
|Happy in Selling stuffs|
I would greatly hope to gain a smooth sailing year in 2018. All the best to myself and other readers who have been following my writings.
