My restaurant is named Fangtasia. It is a poor replication of an establishment featured on my favorite TV show. My hopes for 2011 include:

1) More flavors of synthetic blood
2) Passage of the VRA (Vampire Rights Amendment)
3) A certain blond waitress will leave that brooding loser of a vampire for good and become the "lover" of my favorite 1000-year old hunk.

2010 have passed us really quickly and 2011 is now upon us. Let the grief and unhappiness that have happened in the past go by us so we can greet the arrival of a better future in the coming year.
My hopes for 2011 is that everyone will be able to live their life to their fullest, to have a colorful and vibrant lifestyle, expanding their horizon and meeting people from all walks of life.
Sometimes living in a developed country makes us forget about the less fortunate because we take the luxurious possessions for granted. We worry about getting the newest Iphones whereas others are worrying about where they'll be getting their next meal; famine is a serious concern in the world and I hope that there will always be enough food to go around for everyone in this world.
I decorated my restaurant to portrays how I want this world to become: colorful! full of diversity! Always full of food enough for each and everyone! Let us grab opportunities like the CLAW MACHINE! If you don't succeed at your first attempt, FRY FRY( try try) again!

Thanks again to TeamLava and Lesleypsg for organizing this contest

My restaurant design reflects my hopes for a New Year with beauty and simplicity. My restaurant is in the color of roses - the most beautiful and elegant, yet simple flower. As the new year emerges, after the hustle and bustle of a busy holiday season, we need to take time to reflect what is REALLY important. The most beautiful and rewarding things in life are the simple ones - good health, good food, good family and friends. Material possessions do not bring happiness. My restaurant reflects the approach of beauty and simplicity, like the rose. My hopes and wishes for all in-game and beyond is a joyful New Year with plenty of time spent with friends and loved ones, enjoying the simple gifts of conversation, food and companionship.

Thank you Lesleypsg and Teamlava to providing this opportunity to share our New Year wishes.

2011 Here it is! Fast yeah I know! 2011 is here which means all of us most come to together to make it the way we all need it to! DIVERSE is my one wish. Our world is the way WE make it so let's make it good! My restaurant describes how I want this to be like! Our world is made from many cultures worldwide and we should let them be with you they want to be with! So this my restaurant where I show how all of these designs are separated to show how we make these people comfortable with what they like and enjoy. My restaurant shows how we want our costumers to be able to visit all of 2011 and maybe even longer!

I just rearrange my tables and chairs just for this event. As your can see, it is split into three different section. It is been a very long time since my family have come together to have a good dinner.

This year, I have three resolution about my family side, yes abit greedy.

1) It's been like nearly 4 years since my family and relatives come together to celebrate something. I really wish that this year, during Chinese New Year, my family and relative will follow like the last time. Go to restaurant to have some dim sum together as one big whole family. Hence, I created one section with alot of tables and chairs. Just for that purpose

2) After my sister married, it has been sometime since my family have sit down together to have dinner. Though, my family have five members, I am only able to create a place of four tables due to place constrain. But I really wish, my sister will come back more often to have dinner with us.

3) Over at the bakery concert, I wrote about finding a partner. I create a atmosphere of grand and romantic and a private section to have food to ourself. I really hope, one day, I am able to find the correct one and bring her to romantic restaurant to have dinner frequently.

A new year comes along with the spring,
snow ceases and the ice run thin
seeds flower up for the joy of your eyes,
birds begin once again to sing and fly
it is time for your hopes to rebirth
take ur dreams and make them true,
learn from the mistakes from the year you came through
and let nothing to stop you, for the sky shines bright blue.

A litle writing of my own, i hope you liked it, it pretty much resumes my hopes for this New Year 2011 for you all.
Thanks TeamLava and Lesleypsg for this event :)

New Year Hopes: Dreams.

My hopes for the new year are also personal. This is my last year of university, and I've always put 100% into everything I do, especially my studies. This year is more important than ever, as I will finally graduate from uni and enter the work force. Therefore, there are a lot of pressures in 2011. I'll have to put 110% into uni, to achieve the best marks I can possibly achieve, so that I will graduate from uni with high enough marks to earn first class honours. This way I will be a competitive employee for hire as I enter the work force to land my dream job. Thus my new year hope for 2011 is to reach my dreams - do the impossible. I've designed my restaurant to reflect my metaphorical "dream" - I would love to get my dream job (a good paying job), and live the life of luxury and elegance. The best thing about working hard towards your goal with passion and determination is the end result - and I feel like this year, I'll finally be rewarded with what I've been working towards all my life. Just like how every one of us started building our restaurants from scratch, they're now our "castles" we can be proud of. My restaurant took a lot of time and effort, but I believe I created my dream restaurant, just as I have been working on creating my dream career through my studies. My restaurant's creation embodies and reflects my hopes for continuing passion and determination towards one's dreams, of never stopping short of said dreams - which means more to me in 2011 now more than ever. And though people tend to separate what is "practical" (reality) from dreams - that is, to be practical is not to dream, and to dream is to not be practical - I think it is the mixture of the two that GETS you to your dream. So though my words of passion and determination about my studies may be practical, they are actually what will allow me to reach my dream. So let's all work hard towards our dreams and let the champagne flow. :)

Thank you Lesleypsg and TeamLava for the contest. :)

My hope for 2011 is four seasons of happiness. I separated my restaurant into four parts. Christmas, library, tropical and ocean. Christmas is December and library is Fall which it's the season of reading books in our country. And tropical and ocean are both summer. I wanted to design spring part but there were no pinks that I could express with it. So I just designed two kinds of summer. I wish all our hopes and life could be filled with happiness in this year, 2011.
