2010 – A Recap

  • Completed 10 years in Singapore.  Never thought that i would last so long here.
  • For the second consecutive year, didn’t fall sick even for a single day.
  • Lost more than 13 kgs in 4 months and overall 17 kgs to bring my BMI down to a healthy 23.
  • Significant investments done in equity and mutual funds.
  • Bought Gold ETFs for the first time ever.
  • This blog had 100,000 hits after almost 2 years of moving here. My previous WordPress blog used to have so many hits in 1-2 months itself 😉
  • Blogged infrequently, but wrote more original posts unlike last time when i just blogged more about the news.
  • Read 13 books and quite a few audio books too; making this year the most prolific when it came to reading.
  • Had just one holiday this year and that was a visit back home to India.
  • Read more about finance, investing. Diversified my investments and started reading more about the financial reports of the companies I had invested in.
  • Watched tons of movies, but was so busy that hardly had time to update the Movies page of this blog.  Hope to be much more regular next year.
  • Made some significant plans for the next year and will disclose them as and when they happen 😀

Overall, nothing great about the year.  Looking forward to the new year with excitement.  Hoping and wishing for an exciting new phase of life.
