My Personal Aspirations for 2011

My Personal Aspirations for 2011

For 2011, I’ve decided to list down my aspirations for the year.


You might think that they’re “resolutions” but they’re not. Resolutions are decisions to do or not to do something, while aspirations are hopes of achieving something. And yes, I have my hopes for this year.

Therefore in 2011, I aspire to…


1) Exercise frequently and keep my body in shape.

I am fat. No doubt about it and I require more workouts. While many resort to hitting the gym, I personally prefer to do self-exercise – for instance, swimming.

And hopefully, get an awesome body like…

6 pack abs

But wait, if I want nice abs – must go to gym right? Damn…

Personal prediction: Fit body – highly achievable. Fit body with awesome abs – maybe not. :/

2) Continue my passion in playing music.


Ever since I graduated, I rarely play my Saxophone. It has been left to collect dust for quite some time, but I believe there are opportunities to come in Klang Valley.

Personal prediction: Attended an audition recently, seems promising.

3) Get an iPhone. Preferably the one coming out this year, be it iPhone 4G or iPhone 5.

An iPhone is my all-time top target. Despite that, I haven’t own one because it’s unnecessary. But I still want it because Steve Job said…

Personal prediction: Unlikely unless it’s sponsored. Heh. :P

4) Upgrade my DSLR to Canon EOS 550D. Or similar new release that are within my budget.

Photography is, so far, just a hobby. I’ve never intend to take it to the next level. Furthermore, I seldom use my camera to the fullest.

Personal prediction: We’ll see along the way.

5) Buy my first property.


Fat hopes but it can be a good investment and it’d be nice to have my own home. A condo would be fine.

Personal prediction: If got strategic and well-managed condos within my budget, I’ll consider. But can’t put too much hopes on this.

6) Travel to at least 2 places within Malaysia and 1 other country.

Well, places in Malaysia don’t mean Ipoh or Penang lah. I was thinking maybe Sarawak and Sabah?

Perhaps exotic places where I can experience more of Malaysia.

Personal prediction: Most likely to be achieved.

7) Keep blogging actively.

Blogging is, like photography, a hobby to me. I write because I like to share my experiences and thoughts. But will the inspiration and motivation keep coming? I hope so.

Personal prediction: to survive for another year.


Okay, by looking through the 7 aspirations, most of them involve money. I hope I don’t go “bankrupt” at the end of 2011, or else I’ll end up sleeping on the roadside…

Touch wood!

Anyway, a tiny analysis shows that I’m only confident in 3 out of 7 points – which also mean 57% of my aspirations might not be fulfilled. Oh oh…

But as least this entry makes point 7 more achievable right? Stay tuned! :)
