Last weekend I was invited to speak at Destinations, an annual consumer-facing travel show in London. My subject was "Reshaping Middle East tourism" and, gratifyingly, if rather amazingly, something like 100 people came to listen – a vote of confidence in the idea of going on holiday to the Middle East, at a time when doom and gloom is widespread.
First of all, I would like to wish Everyone Happy Chinese New Year and have blast for this year. Ancient Chinese wisdom says a Snake in the house is a good omen because it means your family will not starve. This could be taken metaphorically to mean that a Snake could never have a problem with his family starving because he is such a great mediator, making him good at business. Or it could mean that a Snake would be willing to sacrifice his possessions, something the Snake has a lot of, in order to pay for his family’s food. Any way it is interpreted is representative of the Snake’s character and is a measure of the value he puts on his material wealth.
Well I’m a ‘sheep’ according to the Chinese zodiac (the metal sheep to be exact) and this year I have to work my butt off so that everything will fall into places. I’m not trying to say I’m superstitious but for our family we it’s a tradition. Working on CNY really tiring but worth it in terms of financial.
Yes, I cut my hair, look pretty though
..and food really scared of me (with my friend)
So Again We everyone, and all blogger out there have a very Great Chinese New Year and may this year will bring you luck, health, wealth and prosperity ^_^

Hey all bloggers, It’s that time of year again. It seems like it arrives faster every year, but once again we have arrived at the end of one year and are about to start another. Leading up to the new year makes us reassess the year that was and begin planning our lives for the year ahead.
I just hope that us family will make a massive changes in our lives but never change as in person.
Well this our theme for this year in STB, White and Blue to relax our mind and be ready for the new file, books and record and all the transaction for 2013. Wish me luck fellas..Anyway, today is lovely Sunday morning and I’m still here working for the rest of the holidays with my colleagues and hearing Christmas song for now and still counting to Christmas day…and actually there’s a lot in my mind what I want for this coming Christmas
Well this are a few my favorite old times Christmas song Silver Bells (Johnny Mathis) – I love it. I do. And it’s so melodic. Just fun to sing. There’s not much to say beyond that. Except that it’s about precious metals and shopping. How could any woman not love it? Last Christmas (Wham!) – Christmas heartbreak, as extolled so ingeniously by George Michael. Though I was also given a Wham! record, I can’t say I was ever a fan. I was always more confused by him than anything else. Sorry..
Silent Night- Let me qualify this one. I like this song. A lot, actually. Despite my having
been forced to sing it hundreds of times in fourth-grade Glee Club. I’ve forgiven that. What Ihate about it is that it’s one of those songs, you know, like I Will Always Love You or The Star-Spangled Banner,
that everyone knows the words to,everyone sings, and most people
butcher. Some songs are best left to the pros.
But I like this one VERY MUCH
Hmmm ~~ still don’t have any idea for Christmas Eve…I write for more anyway, hope everyone enjoy their count down to Christmas Day
