  • Dear Gaik Huey,
    Happy New Year to you too.
    Thanks for your encouraging words.
    New Year Resolutions to me, are actually very individual and private matters. One has to retrospect, reflect and contemplate..go into one's silence of the mind .. and then make aspirations ( resolutions ) as to the LIFE STEPS one has to take to grow in compassion and wisdom ...
