i made this list 2 years ago, and it has changed a lot since then. but most items have consistently made it to the top list :-) perhaps these are the items i really luv doing! i have already removed here though things i already did in the last 2 years, so i’m now again trying to shortlist my “to do” things. for the meantime, if you think you are up to some adventures like i do, feel free to holler me, and yeah, i’d luv to have company ;-)

    When do you intend to do #22? Let’s make sure that there’s also a scheduled marathon in that country para it’s like killing 2 birds in 1 stone. Do update me 3 years before so I would have enough time to prepare! I hope Roger could still make it to the Finals by that time.

    Just wondering about this –> 23. olympics! (since 2012 is the next one, i opt to be in beijing then!) –> I think what you mean is London? Either way, I hope you’ll get to see it. Good luck!
