This morning I woke to the alarm, saw 31 Dec on the watch face and immediately had an urge to to grab hold of this day not wanting to let it past. I don’t know if its because 2016 was quite a big change for me, or if it’s I’ve just spent ten fantastic days touring Taiwan with my family, or whether it’s the thought of knowing the chances of seeing 31 Dec reduces as I grow old.
Ever since I was 9, I’ve been living back and forth between UK and Hong Kong，moving every dacade or so due to different reasons. The 2016 move is probably the most drastic, moving to Taiwan instead of Hong Kong, and taking an extended career break (early retirement sounds so old ). It was, and still is a risk, living off savings particular since it has devalued by 10% since Brexit (yes, I still hold a grudge against it ). Nonetheless, it was a risk I was ready to take and glad I did. Afterall, how often do you get a chance to take control of your life rather than the other way round ?
Now lets see what 2017 has in store for me.
