New Year? New Yeah!

It’s mid-January, but never too late to say Happy New Year! Having spent Christmas break back in the UK with family and friends, I am now back in Hong Kong and more than ready to start the new semester. Over Christmas I decided to set myself some goals for the coming year, so without further ado…

  • More photographs! Although I post quite regularly on Instagram, I want to be more active in posting photo sets on the blog, after all a picture speaks a thousand words ammirite? Also, I’m guilty of neglecting to take photos of actual people, so that’s another little thing to keep in mind.
  • More travel! Last semester I didn’t do as much travelling as I thought I would – I haven’t even been to Macau yet! So this year, I plan to take advantage of cheaper flight tickets and visit more places in Asia before I leave. In a similar vein, I’d like to explore much more of Hong Kong in terms of natural landscapes and scenic hikes. Definitely on the list is cliff diving and beaches, even though I’m not a huge fan of beaches (too much sand).
  • More language! As always, I will continue working on my Cantonese, through speaking in social situations and also learning to write! In turn, I am also able to revise and study Mandarin since I use pinyin to type traditional characters. Who knows, maybe I will aim to write a small segment of my blog posts in Chinese…

So there you go, nothing too difficult to achieve, but something to work towards this semester. Let me know of your goals/resolutions for the New Year too!
