The weather is extremely chilly here in Budapest, with my next meeting arranged to be at 1.00 p.m., where i will be having lunch with a young executive from one of the country's leading management consulting firms here in Hungary.
Following up with my trip for Your Big Year so far, it has been a memorable one.
Coming from Malaysia, the festive celebrations are important for me, as moments for me to renew my commitments in life, to remembering all those joyful moments that life has given me throughout the years so far, and most importantly ushering in new hopes, dreams and vision to do things!
Festive celebrations like the Chinese New Year are both important and meaningful for the Chinese community, celebrating this new year of the Rabbit at every parts of the world from China to Singapore to Malaysia to even here in the UK.
Even though i was thousands and thousands of miles away, separated by oceans and great vast lands up here in the UK, compared to my home country, Malaysia in which this festival will be celebrated at, i still made sure that i was there in Liverpool, to soak in and feel the Warmth, Prosperous and Joyful greetings of the Chinese New Year!
It is important to me, and i wanted to share the Best Wishes for 2011, where we Chinese believe is The Year of the Rabbit, with all my friends and the citizens of Liverpool.
Experience the excitement, the Blasts of Fire-crackers and the ringing drums of the Lion Dances here in this video.

Greetings from Hungary everyone! Carielle and myself have started our first trip for Your Big Year outside of the Liverpool in the UK, being here in Budapest, Hungary.
Upon touching down on this amazing country, i was reminded on how this entire journey had began for me, ever since Your Big Year back in November 2010. It has been an amazing year last year, and i am sure this year it will be better!
I have met and made friends with the most outstanding individuals and groups from all throughout the world through this competition. From Entrepreneurs, to NGO Activists, to Sports Fans to Corporate Figures to Very Determined Individuals - Your Big Year has definitely gave me the defining moment in my life when i first won it with Carielle.
To kick things off with where it all started, i am sharing a video with all of you of this historic moment at the Town Hall in Liverpool.
It was the moment where the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Cllr. Hazel Williams announced and congratulated the winners for Your Big Year on becoming the World's 1st Global Ambassador with Smaller Earth.
Let the World Journey Begin! And it starts here in Budapest, Hungary!
