According to 59 second (Richard Wiseman), writing down good/bad experience could make oneself happy & more confident. I have started a journal called Happy Days for 2010.

Here is a reflection on 2009:
1. Sparklife / AFI100 made me learn a lot of trivia on literature & movies
2. Record breaking in buying 93 books this year (2006: 69 / 2007: 80 / 2008: 65). Developed a castle of books in my room
3. Subscript to FT & occasionally read Foreign Affairs
4. Developed anti-social skills as bete noire, casual chatting as pet peeve & paranoid over every little things
5. Be a Best man for a university friend couple
6. Starting to celebrate Christmas & Count down new year at office
7. Win a Ocean Park whole year pass x 2 in Xmas party
8. My Asia miles is enough for round-trip Japan
