Happy New Year

Friday, December 31st, 2010

Well Happy New Year everyone, I hope that 2010 was a good year and 2011 is even better.

For me 2011 sees me pretty much where I was in 2010, although a recent visit to Manila by a friend of mine made me face the realisation that I’ve not really seem as much of South East Asia, or even the Philippines, as I should have done. Which is a bit crap after 18 months living in the area.

So, for this years resolution I intend to get out of Manila and visit 12 different places over the course of the year. I’m not saying ‘new’ as there’s been plenty of places I’ve been to only briefly and places isn’t very precise, but I’m trying to make my life easy. Basically I want to get out of Manila around once a month and just by visiting places I’m comfortable with.

We’ll see how this one goes, notice that I’m not resolving to write about them …

Well, that failed then didn’t it.

52 posts in a year, it ain’t happening unless I aim for around every two hours between now and the end of the year. And frankly that wasn’t the point.

I’m not sure what happened, I had lots of ideas for posts but never the motivation to write them (or at least finish them). Perhaps sitting in front of a computer for countless hours a day removes my will to do the same in the evening. Perhaps it’s the weather. Perhaps it’s just that in the back of my mind I don’t really think that what I’m writing is that interesting.

Whatever, all I can say is, sorry. I will try and post when the mood takes me, I don’t intend to let this site die on the vine but perhaps I just need to find a few more … unorthodox … things to write about.

Anyway, hope you’ve all had a Merry Christmas, let’s see what the new year will bring.
