As we say goodbye to 2012 and joyfully usher in the New Year, it is a good opportunity for all of us to take some time to reflect on the year that has gone by and think of all the good and happy times we have shared with our friends and family. We should also take a moment to remember our friends and loved ones who are no longer with us and cherish our memories of them.
A good place to take a quiet, relaxing walk is Gurney Drive. To me the best time to go would be in the evening at about 6.00 p.m., take an evening stroll, sit and reflect, and just enjoy the refreshing sea breeze and the wonderful vista. We are so lucky to be living on an island that it is so convenient for us to go to the seaside or a seafront promenade.

For guests at our hotel, you can just sit and relax in our tropical garden, where we have placed garden tables and chairs for your use. We also have balconies and courtyards for you to sip tea and coffee; reflect and reminisce about the good times you had in 2012 and also plan for the year ahead.
