Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

Summer in Sweden!

This pic was taken last year on my 3rd summer in Sweden! We would go to his summer home every July and spend about 5 days, by which we would stroll around in the village, do blackberry picking (for making jam, pies, and juices), and other days we would do picnic by the cliff. My favorite of course is blackberry picking! There is really a sense of fulfilment when you take time to pick those fresh new berries and then make into food, I think everyone should do this, really fun!

We were able to meet up his childhood friend this time round, who has his own summer home just right next door to ours. Like everyone else, the summer home is already being passed down from generation to generation, just like the teacups used that’s shown on the pic. Pic also showed the freshly baked homemade strawberry shortcake and nice swedish coffee made by the family.



Early Christmas!

Went out with friends yesterday and found some shopping centres already have the christmas decor set up since few days ago! This year’s tree in this particular shopping centre-Takashimaya, has the usual big tall one but is prettier than last year, as it has the mixture of sweet pink color, I am charmed!



South of France

This pic was taken from the top view of a musuem at South of France. It was one of the few musuem trips during my study year at South of France, Aix-En-Provence.

I still remember fondly that this museum place was extremely pretty and charming, surrounded with lots of beautiful trees!! Oh man, just look at the pic, it’s just a really unusual and lovely musuem!! And the musuem is housed at some village.

I can’t remember the exact name of the musuem and village since it was like a decade ago I last been there, but I do remember that it was near St. Tropez. In it, it has some good collections of various famous artists but I seem to remember only Joan Miro and Matisse lol. Probably because the former appeals to me with his playful, abstract, and modern look in his paintings. And the latter appeals to me the most with his colourful, strong pattern, and radiance expression. =)

This place is definitely one of the best museums, or rather, the top 3 musuems I have been to so far!

Hmm, if there is anyone out there who knows this place well or been there before, do let me know the name, appreciate!



One of the greatest wonders in the world...Golden Gate!

Clearly, one of the “must see” in the world!

I took this pic when I was working there for a year in 98. Had drove from Colorado to San Francisco with another friend..And yes, I had spent my Christmas there too!

The first time when I went to San Francisco for a vacation was actually in 93, but only saw Golden Gate in the day time. I was struck by its beauty and so I decided I should come back again (5 yrs later :)) and take the evening view…And there you go, I did it, I did fulfil my dream to come back and take another great pic again!! WOOT! And boy, I was lucky to take with the fog as well! lol



Swedish Winter Blue

Sweden, easily one of my top favourite countries in the world!

This pic was taken about 2 yrs ago when I was living there during winter time.

It was my 2nd winter experience over there, but as usual, coming from a typical Singaporean mindset, this would feel like a disaster to us :P Considering that we are blessed from any natural disaster, seeing snow storm or walking through thick snow is like a disaster befalling us or a BIG event of the life lol.

It was always exciting to see snow for the first time for us but it gets a bit depressing after a while, mainly because of the dark sky. I got up at dim sky, and it got slightly brighter, and then became dark again within hours, just about when I finished my lunch :(

Why are Swedish Winter Skies always so blue?..

P.S. This pic was taken at his home area, not in the mountain of course, it’s right in the heart of Stockholm :)

I simply love this pic I took!! It depicts the pretty winter scene and the winter blue feeling I was going through!! Pretty to look at but scary to step out of the house lol



A wedding photo of Singapore!

This picture was taken at the west side of Singapore, “The yacht club”! Over here in Singapore, a day’s wedding usually includes a few hrs of outdoor photography session. It’s taken place after the morning tea ceremony and before the wedding dinner.

The couple in the pic is my cousin and her hubby, who is now based in Shanghai (work attachment)..So she usually travels to Shanghai as and when she takes leave from her office work. Lucky gal!



Snapped on time!!

This is one of my few fav pics of Czech Republic, taken at the old town next to the huge revolving ancient clock. The figurines on the clock have definitely fascinated me and I was stuck in this place staring at them for the longest time!!

Anyway, I am so proud to have this pic taken because I had snapped the pic on time when this old carriage was passing through ..fast!!



Pretty Winter in Sweden

I love, love this pic I took in Sweden during Christmas time..It’s taken from one of the Swedish friends’ home.. As you can see, the home setting is very scanadavian style. And look at the amt of snow piling outside..yet we felt very warm and “stylish” in the house lol… So, I couldn’t help it and had to capture this pretty scene :)



My dream..

My dream is to see more wonderful things in this world and record them down all in pictures..
