My Promise to live life – My BucketList 2013

A little bit different and another post about the fears I have in my life with a reflection of other reader’s experiences along with it.

My Fears

Item #27: Get my weight back to 47 KG

Another goal achieved, Hurrah! It took a while to get back there and not exactly but I am pretty close after dancing, martial art, travel and exercising this year. I am glad that I have achieved the set goal of my weight finally this year and would make sure when I come back after christmas then I work more on myself and make sure I keep up with fitness level.

Strange but Fun Facts & Laws to Read

I was reading this post – Only dull people are brilliant at breakfast from my friend Jill London and in order to send her some more weired facts in addition to the one in her post, I stumbled upon few really strange facts that I felt I can share with you all. Hope you find something new in these may be not so strange facts 🙂
