It's way too early for any #midweekthoughts but I just had to wish you guys a Happy New Year! My first entry of 2018 will be rather short - just penning down aspirations and hopes for the year. But like practice sessions, I can't go about writing stuff like "Be a better father" or "Practice more" - while I do strive and work towards that, those are just too vague and broad. Instead, I'll be listing some down personal aspirations (like what I did for 2017's goodness) as they come off the top of my head:


  • Editing at least 1 of the remaining 2 videos I recorded in 2016
  • Holding another solo concert
  • Recording Forever Summer 
  • Doing some mashups/covers
  • Writing/arranging more for Lorong Boys


They're in no particular order, but I think putting them down online in a public forum adds just a bit more stress and pressure to actually get down to doing them! So I hope you hold me accountable as the months go by - send some reminders if I don't get those off the "to-do" list! Having said that, while I definitely aspire to achieve these goals, there are forces not within my control that can and may affect things - already 2 projects that I was looking forward to this year have been either cancelled or postponed. It really is a bummer, but no point sulking and brooding. As I said before, I do believe that God will help me down the road and that when one door closes, another opens.

Also, if you feel comfortable, do share your aspirations for 2018 as I would love to hear from you. In the meantime, #midweekthoughts will be back every Wednesday, 12pm (GMT+8), starting January 10th! I hope everyone stays safe and well during that time. As always, thanks for reading!
