One Year has passed

"It requires wisdom to understand wisdom: the music is nothing if the audience is deaf." - Walter Lippman

Acquire Wisdom and Live with Passion has been around for a year.

Time really flies. The total hours that I spent for a year comes to 1460 hours if I spent an average of 4 hours a day in blogging. That is a lot of time – right? Anyway, I benefited a lot in so doing. Somehow, the saying is true. You get what you focus on. I got myself inspired when looking for inspiring quotes, wise sayings, insights and photos to match each of my posts. Anyway, moving forward, I will be spending more time doing other things that matters most to me. Thus, there will be much lesser posts in this blog. If you do not want to miss any of my future posts, please subscribe to this blog RSS feed.

I hereby express my thanks to all who had shared their experience, ideas, words of wisdom, and inspiration!

"Man is honored for his wisdom, loved for his kindness." - S. Cohen

One of my goals this year is to learn mandarin.

I will be starting a new blog very soon detailing my attempt to learn mandarin and I hope the new blog will be a useful resource for others wishing to do so as well.

Many Blessings
Sam Chan

Hi Sam,

Wow .. A Fruitful year for you and your readers indeed.

I would also be taking it easier this year in blogging. I am checking on my blog very much less frequently than in the past. Devoting time and energy to other areas of my life.

A new blog huh. I can't wait to see it. Keep me updated ok.


FL Sam said...

All the best !!

Hi Lillie, Jesse, Tawnya, Enigma, Lili, Karen, Sam and Janice,

Thank you for all the wishes and continuous support.

Indeed, it has been a long time and the best is to know so many of you.

Well, due to the change of schedule this year (both of my twin are now studying in the afternoon; not like last year where all my boys study in the morning), I have to get adjusted to find the right time to blog. FYI, I am replying from my office during lunch break.

Well, maybe due to the many posting I had made, I find it tough to come out with newer post. Anyway, starting a blog detailing how I am going to study mandarin should be interesting. I really hope I can learn the mandarin language and enjoy this new blog. I hope to start this new blog on Feb 1, 2008.

Blessings to all of you my dear friend.

Congratulations Sam! Happy first Anniversary!

Mandarin is a good language to learn but I guess my tongue is not up to it, lol.

I can try, would be interested how far I can go, hehehehe.

Thanks for all the great articles you made to us, your avid readers!

We are looking forward for more!!!!

We love all your entries, you are such a great writer and blogger!

If you are to write a book, I am sure it will be a best seller. I will reserve one for every book you have, thats for sure hehehehe.

Sam Chan said...

Hi Haze,

Thank you for your well wishes and your continuous support.

I am very happy to know that you love all my posts. That's really a great encouragement and it means a lot.

Hmm... write a book. Who know?... maybe one of this day :-)

Blessings to you.
