It is the last day of 2011, there are many agenda that happened during the last 365 days that I had no idea where to start, where natural disasters, to iconic figures leaving us. I agree it has been a massive roller-coaster ride.
Created a startup, that did not make it: diish.my
It is really sad to see my first venture into start-up did not go as planned. In fact, there is more things that I underestimated, things that go beyond my control, from administration and people-issue. Reflecting myself back on this, it is almost 2 year since I started it and I have no regret, will look forward to next year, and possible a comeback.
Completed first commercial iPhone / Android App and Blackberry Playbook App
I am really glad to be given chance to venture into the app world which exploded in the past few years and brought most of the Flash developers down to their knee. Many, including me had lost direction on our career future when there is massive uncertainty over Flashâ€™s future posed by the company. But all is not lost, as I have seen this kind of drama happening all over again, and being in this line of business, it is either you pick yourself up or to be left in the dust.
Bought my first house (!) and my first car is one year old
Portfolio is updated after 5 years
Long overdue, Iâ€™m finally glad to have completed the rehaul of my portfolio website showcasing works for more than half a decade since my graduation in 2005. Perhaps the stance are really different compared to what I used to think of portfolio website should be. It is now more information centric and working towards a much more semantic site that is search engine friendly. It appears making a good website is entirely different with a good-looking website.
Completed my first 10km run!
I have to say, I am really f***ing proud of myself and have never thought I can do it. Last October 5th, 2011. Completed my first ever 10KM run within 1:21 and I really canâ€™t believe what I had went through. Finally knew it is really not about the prizes but more about mental and physical determination. My whole body ached like crazy for a week after the run but it is all worth it.
It is indeed a crazy year, and Iâ€™m glad it is finally coming to an end. There is not much of a bell and whistles for me, but Iâ€™m looking forward towards the coming new year. It had never occurred to me, but passing the 25-years-old barrier kept me thinking a lot of about myself. May you have a blessed year ahead.
