2011 – A Recap

A bit late into the year, but its always better late than never. Its been a practise i have followed for the past 3 years, so here it goes.

  • Moved to another department in the company. Got a salary hike, a higher position and not to mention work related stress.
  • Attended a weeklong ISMS course and got certified as a ISO 27001 lead auditor at the end of it.
  • Read 33 books at an average of more than 2 books a month. The increase mostly due to listening to audio books.
  • Watched more than 85 movies.
  • Went for a relaxing holiday to Kuala Lumpur towards the end of the year.
  • Celebrated Christmas at Hyderabad for the first time post getting married.
  • Met some net friends personally after having chatted with them online for a few years.
  • Investments in stocks and mutual funds went on as usual.  Towards the end of the year, the whole equity portfolio was in red barring a few stocks. Though the mutual funds portfolio is quite profitable.
  • Completed 11 years in Singapore.
  • Blogging took a backseat.  I have no plans of abandoning this medium though i have been more active on Facebook.
  • Took the longest vacation (of a month) ever since i started working. It started off as a normal vacation but circumstances forced the vacation to be extended.

Previous years recap: 2008, 2009, 2010

More excited about 2012 as i have some big plans lined up and if they all work well, it should be yet another defining year in my life.

Update: And ya, this is my 700th post. Cant believe i have managed to spew out so much in 4 years.
