My 30 before 30 List

Yes, it's taken me a while to compile this list, but here it is finally. And I've got about 1.5 years to complete it, and hopefully live a fulfilling last 2 years in my twenties!

FYI, I turn 30 on 22 May 2014. I hope I heard you gasp because you thought I was younger ;p

In no particular order,

1. Have Baby #2 - tentatively to be known as Lil Munchkin.
2. Travel to Europe - must visit Denmark, France, Germany, London, Greece.
3. Complete our outdoor chillax area.
4. Master Korean language.
5. Learn how to balloon-sculpt
6. Travel to Vietnam - buy cheap cheongsums, eat cheap food!
7. Start driving in Singapore.
8. Teach Lil Pumpkin how to swim - I used to be a competitive swimmer.
9. Prepare a media kit for Sakura Haruka
10. Get a new tattoo on my back.
11. Start indoor rock-climbing again.
12. Buy a new sofa. Or maybe just throw away current one & get more zabutons {座布団}.
13. Start a once-a-month detox program.
14. Enroll Lil Pumpkin in dancing classes - hip hop? korean pop? ballet?
15. Set up my own workspace at home. Couch not counted.
16. Go back to Kansai for 2 weeks - Kyoto, Osaka, Kobe.
17. Sort out digital photo storage on computer. Make sure there's back-up!
18. Handmake a Teacher Journal for Lil Pumpkin.
19. Create a time-capsule for Lil Pumpkin to open on 16th birthday.
20. Try horse-riding.
21. Eat something I've never eaten or heard of before.
22. Go for a staycation in Singapore - chalet? Sentosa?
23. Go camping.
24. Bring Lil Pumpkin to Disneyland
25. Prepare an emergency survival kit and plan
26. Attend a music concert or Broadway performance
27. Write a children's story. Maybe find someone to illustrate it Le-Petite-Prince style.
28. Lose 5 kg - been on all my new year's resolution lists like forever. Let's do it!
29. Take photos of all my SF shoes.
30. Get Lil Pumpkin to sleep in her own room.

Wish me luck! If you have such a list, I'd love to know what's on yours :)

I love the tattoo part :P
I loved to watch Miama Ink last time & was very fascinated with all the people who went to get themselves a tattoo plus the stories about getting it. I wish I could get one in real life but I doubt I will do that otherwise my hb will be sooooo mad at me :)

Great list.

I did a whole bunch of stuff the year of (and the year leading up to) my 40th birthday. Now it's your turn to gasp because surely I DO LOOK YOUNGER (nod your head vigorously please). Stuff I did included trapeze flying, boot camp, writing a book (I have now written many) and ... did I say trapeze flying?

Nice list! Well, I haven't done most of them but I'm lucky to have done a few, like travelling to Europe and taking Angel to Disneyland. Didn't know you were a competitive swimmer! We should bring our girls to swimming together someday! =)

Good to see you are living your life full as yourself, as a mum and as a wife. Thumbs up!!

Becky from said...

Love it! I think it's great that you've done it in enough time to spend a year and a half to get it done! I have six months left to finish all mine!

Rhianna said...

Fantastic list. Looking forward to having you share the adventure with us. Fairy wishes and butterfly kisses

EssentiallyJess said...

Excellent list and you have heaps more time to do it than I do!
Btw, I wouldn't think you had 5kgs to lose!

Wonderful list, Ai! I love the idea of baby#2 and sorting out your digital photo storage! (The latter took me some 3 years to do, but it is wonderful once it's done!)
Ronnie xo
p.s. You look WAY young. Love the photo too.

What an amazing list - you've inspired to write a list of things to do before I'm 40 in 6 years time. OMG 40 seems SOOO old.
