Photo Journal/ Weekly Photo Challenge: Resolved


I do not normally come up with resolutions. However, this week’s photo challenge [as hosted by the folks at The Daily Post at WordPress], Resolvedhas made me think about some of the things I wish to continue to do more of in the coming 12 months. Since these are essentially things I have already done, and are still doing anyway – it makes them ‘resolved’ in a sense.

Resolved: Book Blogging


This is me doing my usual advance posts for GatheringBooks, stacks and stacks of books on the floor and my trusty macbookpro on the side.

Resolved: Live Concerts


Watching Sting live in concert here in Singapore was such a high. Here’s to more concerts, live performances, theatres, shows in 2013.

Resolved: Reading

This is me reading in the middle of a fast food chain, my daughter and godson reading as well on the other table.

I have read a grand total of 220 books for 2012

Now that truly gives me a massive feeling of resolution. Our goal is to collectively read 365 books within a year amongst the three of us, and we have done that as well. Hopefully, 2013 would be as productive.

Resolved: Running


This is me after a 5 km run. And yes, moonlighting as a laundry detergent model on the side. I hope 2013 would help me push my boundaries even further. And to be more disciplined in my running.

How about you, dear friends, what have you resolved to do more of this year?

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).

  3. after more than 1,000 book reviews (ranking on position two in Germany) I stopped and tried to find my own topics – but it soothes me, that enough book readers still exist (for example my wife…) P.S.: wow, you saw Sting? must have been an emotional experience!


  4. that’s a volume of books you read! amazing!
