But I guess, the Airline sector proved to be a lot tougher to cover than I expected. I had anticipated cyclical earnings and high risk from jet fuel price volatility but, MAS gave a whole different challenge to my skills as an analyst. The next highlight for the year was my engagement ceremony in May 2011. It was a low-key affair by many standards but my engagement was one of the many high points in my life. It was when I came to a sudden realization that in 9 months' time, I will be marrying the love of my life.
The high point continued in July where I found out that I had passed my CFA Level I examination. And shortly after that, I acquired my first car. Though not as fancy as expected, I think buying the car was one of the best decision that I have made. It was a practical choice and so far, it has been reliable to me. So I won't say much more on that.
I guess, I'll be leaving 2011 with no regrets. I have done great things and met with great people. I've discovered new friends and new acquaintances. So, goodbye 2011 and I'll be ready to meet 2012.
My New Year resolution? To be more content and grateful with what I have and not regret on things that I don't have.
Have a great New Year Everyone!
