  Money can be a touchy subject for kids and parents alike, but it's also a topic that needs to be discussed. We want our children to understand the value of money and how it works, but it can be tricky to discuss these concepts without sounding preachy.

Hello! Year 2011

How is your New Year coming along? Well, I have a few New year’s resolution to make this year, a decision that I made on the first day of the year about the things that I intend to do or stop doing during this year. Healthy diet tops my list, I need to shed out some fats accumulated over a year hahaha. Second, Impulse buying becomes a habit that I needed to control, I will now be more strict on my budget. Third, to make blogging a routine.  And lastly, to learn more on how to hold and control my temper.

      In the Chinese Calendar, I was born in the year of the fire horse, according to fengshui my horoscope forecast for this year is on average.  I can make it good by attracting the good chi (positive energy), having the favourable  elements of water and metal and the color shades of white, gold, blue, black or gray.  To attract chi, I have plenty of chimes in my home, the sweet, clinging sound when the breeze lightly touches the chime is simply splendid.  Though I am monitoring my fengshui horoscope, I am not dependent on it.  I am using it to serve as a guide only, for I still believe it is us who build and mold our lives the way we want it to be. Hardwork, faith in God, persistence, patience and perseverance are still the keys to success.  After all, if you keep moving toward your goal, never quitting, you will eventually reach it.
       
      2011, let’s welcome it as a great year to pursue on our endeavors, to finish or complete undone tasks, to find the missing link in our lives, to carry out plans and to develop the full potential in our work/job.  Let us not forget to give thanks and praise to our Almighty God for all the blessings we are receiving and we will be receiving this year and in the years to come.
           
             Cheers to 2011!
