With the New Year under way, and resolutions (hopefully) in place, Joyce Siu caught up with 10 people to find out their New Year's resolutions and whether they managed to stick to last year's ones. Pacino Wan, 40, renowned local fashion designer I want to pick up guitar again so that I can jam with my eldest daughter who plays piano. As for my career, I want to be a less subjective boss, and try giving a free hand to my fashion assistants. In 2002, I successfully quit smoking, a habit that I had for 10 years. Sammy Leung, Commercial 903 Radio DJ Making phone calls instead of sending SMS messages. Technology is good but it lacks the human touch. I also want to learn kung fu and put out merchandise for my newly-created characters Uma and Lego. Learning Putonghua was my resolution last year and I've achieved it already. Riz Farooqi, 28, vocalist from punk band King Ly Chee I want to focus on my girlfriend more. Because of my band, I end up neglecting her. I guess I do make a New Year's resolution every year, sub-consciously - to take my band further. In a way, we have achieved that. My band performed at places, like the Convention Centre, that we never imagined we would get to. Wu Siu-hong, 20, Hong Kong's top tenpin bowling player Better time management, getting a good result in the East Asian Games and becoming one of the world's top three tenpin bowling players. My resolution in 2003 was to pass all my HKCEE, but I failed. So I want to have better results with my Associate Degree course at the Hong Kong Baptist University. Kenny Wong Shun-ming, 36, action figure designer and member of Brothersfree To get eight hours of sleep every night and do more aerobic exercise. I also want to spend more time drawing. I make a New Year's resolution every year, but only manage to keep it for the first few months of the year. Elvin Wong Chi-chung, 39, music educator Continuing the Po Po project (Embrace the World of Music campaign). This project's finale was done and dusted last month, but after the tsunami, my wife and I think we should do more to put peace of mind into music. Chet Lam Yat-fung, 27, singer-songwriter I hope my music can go beyond Hong Kong. Many people complain that Hong Kong's music is not good enough. I want to prove that they're wrong. I don't usually make New Year's resolutions - if you want to change, you can do it any time of the year. Christine To Chi-long, 25, screenwriter for blockbuster Jiang Hu I've written many gangster stories before. This year I'm planning to write a love story about young people. Honing my screenwriting skills is my resolution every year and I'll never give it up. But I don't plan to get rid of my bad habits. I'll just keep them as they are. Eman Lam Yee-man, (right) 22, vocalist of electronic folk duo at17 I want to lose 40 pounds in a year! I'll diet and do more exercise. I think it'll be fun. Reading 50 books in a year would be good too. For my music career, I hope that I can produce one of my own songs. Ellen Joyce Loo, 18, guitarist of electronic folk duo at17 I want to be a cheerful and mature person because I wasn't quite able to manage my own problems last year. I also want to study a two-week guitar course in the United States. I don't make New Year's resolution usually - I just take things as they come.
