3. Auto – I’m taking the liberty here to interpret this as “car”… Fresh snow overnight and Zoe got me to write this message on the hood of the car.

The resort actually has cut-outs of the actors in the main lobby of the hotel, so that people could pose with the actors and take photos (!).
Not only that. There is detailed information across six or more bulletin boards about the drama series. I guess the series is so popular that they also have directional signs all over the resort and a map highlighting photo-taking spots where key scenes from the series took place.

4. Little Things – There were so many people on the slopes this afternoon. From afar, they look like little people in those models they have at property developers’ offices.

I have not written down resolutions for a few years now. But this year, because I am asking both Josh and Zoë to write down theirs, it is only fair that I write down mine, too.
Top of my list: To be more zen about things and not sweat the small stuff. So far, so good. Missed the kids’ dental appointment (with a new dentist) because I forgot to check the address? Have bubble tea with the kids at the mall across instead. Reschedule appointment. Laugh at self for duh moment. That was easy. No stress. I like this me.
In terms of photography, one of the things that I’d promised myself is that I will be in front of the camera more. It is rather liberating making that decision. I love that there are now a few more photos of me with the kids and of us as a family.
One other thing I resolve to do is challenge myself more and try more things outside my comfort zone. This means trying to shoot in pure manual mode more, which means I really have to take the time to learn more about my camera and what it could do. I’ve had this camera for two years now and I still have not read the entire manual (!).
I think these two ‘resolutions’ are ambitious enough… for me, for now. I have a long list of ‘wants’ for 2013, but in terms of photography, these are my Top 2.
What are your resolutions for 2013?
The Creativity Project is a monthly blog circle with a new theme each month. This month’s theme is Resolutions. Please head on over to visit Sharon (The Covert Lens) and check out what hers are. You will get a prompt from Sharon on whom to visit next. Do hop along to all the ladies in the group and say hi. We’d also love for you to share with us your “resolutions” on our Facebook page.

See, we often eat out on Sundays. Some days it would be pizza; other days it would be Japanese or Chinese food or something else. Well, last Sunday, both Josh and Zoë were on the floor drawing something and they asked us not to look. We didn’t. We figured that they were probably busy drawing up a program for one of their bedtime performances.
I was engrossed in what I was reading at the time until I heard marching noises and chanting. I called over to them to ease up on the stomping lest the neighbors downstairs complain. They continued on as if they didn’t hear me. I stopped reading and looked over. I almost fell over laughing.
Josh and Zoë both were holding up a badminton racquet each, with a piece of paper taped onto it. They were marching around in a circle, racquets held high, chanting: “KFC tonight! KFC tonight! We want KFC tonight!” (What you can’t see very well on the photo is how Josh signed his Crossly yours, Zoë and Joshua.)

1. Me! – Pic taken by my SIL. Please ignore the many different straps around my neck, on my shoulders. This was taken during our cherry-picking trip this summer.
