I super love orchestra♥♥ Mom and aunt always brought me to orchestra performance concert when I was in an age of 4. I was so envy that those performer can play music very well on the stage and I wish I would be on there one day. That's the reason I join Strings orchestra in my co-curriculum. That kind of orchestra performance feeling is sooooooo GOOD!

HK PolyU. Taiwan Orchestra performance.



The Hong Kong Polytechnic University is coming to our school for admission. It's actually for Senior3 students and 2 science class to attend. I was skipping my class to AV2 for the talk. I have an interest to know more about university now because I have an uncertain future :\ I think I will tend to course like Engineering. I wish to study a better university for Chemical Engineering, if can Architecture :) but the first thing that I'm gonna do now is to Improve my English Ability. I admit my English is really sucks. I'm practicing my writing now. That why I'm blogging here.

Too bad. I cant find my course here.
This university is more on Civil and Mechanical Engineering

曼陀林乐团演奏会

We will be giving a performance on this Saturday as a Welcome to 曼陀林 orchestra from Taiwan. The one who's coming to give us their performance are those who went Taiwan study after they had UEC in Malaysia! Hello, welcome home :) Of course, we're not the main one, wind orchestra do. Our performance is just a 10 minutes of that night. Many people will be attend at this night, those rich public figure from Taiwan and some of our school's parent. No entrance fee needed but ticket for free. I've got 4 :P The thing that I worry the most is myself! I cant believe that I'm in violin 1. I have no confidence to play it well. There are 3 songs to perform on that night, The Lion King, Final Countdown and Radetzky March. I started to practice everyday at home. It's so hard! Most of them is on 3rd position or even 5th position! I'm not that Pro:( OMG. Our orchestra instructor ask us play one by one today. I'm not prepared! So damn nervous, and I played like shit just now T.T I just concentrate on my violin practice and forget about my wearing on that night! Just remember it while my friend is borrowing her costume today. I have to borrow a dress or buy it immediately! oh No, this Reika is so mafan>< I hope my fatty dummy body can fit in my friend's clothes-. Because of this show, I sacrifice my playing time after school. Taking a violin to school is so damn heavy!! It's ok, I love it ♡ feel happy while playing it ^^


Come and join us to watch an amazing performance from Taiwan :)

Writing A Letter To Your Future Self


Writing a letter to your future self is an exercise. Essentially, this is similar to the concept of a time capsule, where you write a personal note to your future self, seal it and only open it at a future moment in time. There are no restrictions on the time duration either – it can be 1 year later, 3 years later, 5 years later, 10 years later, or even 20 years later!


Why Write A Letter To Your Future Self?

Doing this exercise can be a really insightful experience.

Just imagine writing a letter to your future self 5 years from now, then opening it at that exact moment 5 years down the road to see how much of it resonated with you. It is a useful supplementary tool to be used in goal achievement, because when you write the letter to your future self, it helps crystallize exactly how you anticipate yourself to become at that specific moment down the road.

As you read the letter in the future, you can assess how many things match up (or not) vs. your expectations in the past and think about why that’s the case. Often times, the goals we set and our goal achievement process are subjected to a lot of changes along the way, due to varying obstacles, unanticipated circumstances and changing priorities. The letter gives you a macro-view of your initial vision and lets you recognize how your current vision differs from the past.

In addition to that, at the very moment you are writing the letter, your consciousness is captured and stored right there in those words. When you open the letter in the future, you as your future self gets to compare how you used to be in the past and compare with how you are currently. This lets you see in totality how much things have changed since then – and this can be a really intriguing experience. It’s interesting to just see how much you have grown/changed since you wrote the letter

What To Write About?


  1. Look at today’s date. Now imagine you writing to yourself, exactly X years from now. What do you want to say to your future self?
    • How do you want your future self to be like 1 year in the future?
    • What are the different dreams and goals you would want to be realized by then?
    • What is your desired status of the areas of your life wheel at that time? Career/Business/Studies? Finances? Family? Friends? Love? Health? Spirituality? Recreation? Personal growth? Contribution?
  2. Once you’re done, sign off your name with today’s date.
  3. Safe keep your letter.
    • Put the papers in an envelope. Seal it.
    • On the cover, write “To [Your Name]. To be opened on [Date]“. Replace [Your Name] with your name, with [Date] the date that’s 1 year from now.
    • Set in your calendar to open your letter 1 year from now.
    • Put this envelope in a safe place where no one can access to it.
  4. Live your life like you’ve never lived it before in the next 1 year. Open the letter 1 year later and relish in nostalgia, love and joy as you read the letter from yourself 1 year ago.
You can either write it as hard copy (for a greater sense of nostalgia due to the aging condition of paper by then) or have it as a digital soft copy. I personally wrote a hard copy, then transferred it into soft copy document on my computer just in case I lost the hard copy. You can also try FutureMe.org, an online time capsule service that stores and sends information to a specified email address any time in the future you specify. Personally I prefer to have a copy by my side.


Opening My Letter From My Past Self

I wrote a letters to myself last in 2003 when I was in primary 2 (8 years old). I got this idea on a Sunday afternoon while I'm standing at home alone and nothing to do. After having my lunch, I started thinking how I would be in future? I saw mom work as a housewife but also wearing nicely everyday to shopping, sometimes travel, while my aunt likes to read books about philosophy. I was wondering which of them I would be in future? I started envy mom that she can buy whatever she want but I couldn't. I hope I can grow up quickly to live in this kind of life. Besides, I also wish to be wise like aunt who read a lot. I started to make my future self a letter using my Hello Kitty sheets. Now, it's 10 years ago! Reading the letter, it is interesting to notice how I was in the past and how I have changed.


Write Your Letter To Your Future Self


Take out a pen and paper right now and start writing your letter to your future self. Identify a time period to write to, imagine how you will be like during that time period, then start writing. Think about the type of person you will be, your place in life, what you would have accomplished then, the kind of thoughts and feelings you will experience, and so on.

At the end of the letter, seal it in an envelope, write the date to open it on the cover and put it in a safe storage space. Fix the date to open this letter in your personal calendar. When you open this sometime in the near future, you might gain additional insights about yourself and your journey in the past few years that you were oblivious to.

  1. Realize how much have you grown
  2. Recalling sweet memories
  3. Target of your future life
