Singapore, 13th January 2014

Season 4 ended with a number (1000!), now I am starting the new year and new season with a number; 2014! Happy New year to all of you, your family and loved ones! It feels to me like 2014 is going to be a cracker of a year, for many reasons personally, but also business wise this coming year of the Horse is going to be a good one. Considering that I am a “Horse” this should be my year! We ended 2013 with a bang, on a high so to speak, with surprisingly many of our clients deciding to pay up before year end, which left us floating into the new year with a satisfied feeling that all the hard work we had put in over the past year had paid off…we all enjoyed a great holiday with peace of mind…

For now it’s back to work, we have been back at it for a week now, I choose to gradually revv up my work commitment by staying back in our Australia office for a week. Last weekend before flying back from Perth to Singapore I “enjoyed” a searing hot heat wave with temperatures reaching 44 degrees C on Saturday…wow that’s hot! Now back in Singapore the 28+ degrees feel cool! Everything is relative, which is something that holds truth for everything, specifically in lighting design! I had my first full day in the Singapore office today, catching up with the team, setting out directions for our project commitments and even had an outside project meeting with an architect. Slowly but surely the work pace is stepping up back to full speed… I think at the beginning of the year, after a well-deserved rest and quality time with family and friends, we kind of want to preserve that relaxed feeling as long as possible, but I know that as always it won’t be long before we are all back at it and wonder how quickly the holidays went past! For me it starts tomorrow when I am off to (cold) Shanghai…

Light Watch 5-1: I want to leave you with some mood images from the Perth sunsets I enjoyed over the weekend… Happy NEW YEAR!
