My Dream in the Year of the Tiger

I've been writing a lot of "dream" posts recently.
It first started off with the "dream" date "dream" post.
Next, after the post on Ross' "dream"-y sounds at MC Asia "The Creation" Appreciation Party, just yesterday, I posted on the movie Tooth Fairy which involves the message about dreams.

So yes, dreams are important to keep hope alive.
So what is my dream in this Year of the Tiger?
I did mentioned quite a few things that I wanted to work at.
One of the things I have been whining about was wanting to start a business for the past year.

I wanted to set out as an entrepreneur and being my own boss rather than working for somebody. No boss, no person to answer to = freedom! But no, this is not it.

In line with the dream of becoming a successful businessman, I also did say I wanted to work at becoming a millionaire.

There were so many people out there who had carefully laid out plan to achieve that goal by my age and there are quite a number of people who is hardworking and persistent enough to achieve it. But no, this is not it.

There were also many times I griped of being tired of looking at couples at every corner I go.

Perhaps one day, I will meet the girl of my dreams and we will sashay off into the sunset on a nice, cool day. I should start working towards finding my true love. But no, this is not it.

My dream in the Year of the Tiger is actually to own a piece of property in Yokohama, Japan and to be a resident there. Among all the places I have been to, only Japan manage to topple Malaysia as my desired place to call home.

The nice cool atmosphere during spring and autumn captivates my heart where none could ever reach.

The beautiful blend of metropolis life and country life invigorates my heart to travel all around Japan.

The culture with all it's politeness and oddness enlightens my spirit to embrace it.

I know it's a little too extreme in thinking of fulfilling this seemingly impossible dream to ever get to live in Japan or even make it as my 2nd home, but hey, a guy's allowed to dream too, right?

Perhaps, maybe, just maybe, one day I could receive a miracle in making this come true.

What about you? What's YOUR Dream in the Year of the Tiger?

Ya, it's my dream to stay there.
That's why I took the JLPT test in 2008. Was hoping one day to achieve level 1 so I can find job and work in Japan, hahaha.

I'll do so once I can find some free time to explore on how I can share my stories. :)

Hey, so are you going for the run? If you don't mind me asking, is a real run? I heard it's something else and not really running le XD

Kelvin -KtheBlogger- Tan said...

Ha? U mean my lunch date?
Just around PJ loh. XD
Oh, u mean me & Kwong Fei. >.<
Going to the tiger run event loh.

Ya, it's not exactly a real run as in a marathon. It's more like u go to the pit stops to do some things and the fastest one to the finishing line win, I guess.
Also, the consolation prizes are determined in another way, not who's faster.
