Every new year is a time for setting new goals, but sometimes they’re a little too ambitious. We ask a few familiar faces what they’ve resolved for 2017—and whether they think their goals are attainable.

Adrienne Hui

Adrienne (left): “I would like to try to cut down on drinking. Friends who know me well realise it will not be an easy task. What can I say; I love wine way too much. Maybe next year.”

Candice Suen-Sieber

Candice (left): “I always plan to stop dressing so casually every day. Each year I make a promise to myself to wear more of my dresses and jewellery, but in reality you’ll always find me in tees, jeans and wearing a pair of Superga running shoes—and since running shoes are now considered fashionable, it gives me more of an excuse to dress down.”

Francisco Anton-Serrano

Francisco (far right): “My resolution is the same as last year—to not let my home turn into a zoo. It all started with Minky, my Persian cat, who was then joined by Barney and Ollie, my chow chows, along with Anna and May, my turtles, and Velocity, a stray kitten. Although I was named after Saint Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals, at some point you have to draw a line and say enough is enough.” 

Amishi Sani

Amishi (far left): "Every January my resolution is to wake up earlier, since my day really only begins in the afternoon. My husband knows I’m not a morning person. I hope I will be one day, but in the meantime, I guess I’ll have to sleep on it."

Rina Wadhwani

Rina (middle): “Very often the best-laid plans go awry. Every year I revisit my resolutions and promise myself that I will work out more so that I can look like a Victoria’s Secret runway model. It’s better to aim high than not to try at all, right?”
