The Zombie Hunter: Happy New Year!

I really hope this year would be better than the last one. Lots of big headlines, good and bad. We can't just hope for a good 2013, we need to work to make it better.

Here are my wishes:

1. I'm quite excited about my new career in Risk Management. The skills I'm learning and sharing with my clients will directly help me with my family's survival. Stay tuned for The Zombie Hunter's Risk Management Guide to Surviving the Apocalypse. Its a working title.

2. I want to be fit. Way fit. I want an awesome body. My body is quite OK as it is, thank you. My wife and I accomplished lots of fitness milestones this year:
  • We ran half a marathon in 3 hours, we can improve it by 15 minutes in our next attempt in January.
  • She's into Bikram Yoga and is already an advance-level practitioner. Strong people do yoga.
  • I qualified to represent my country for the International Practical Shooting Confederation's Australasia 2013 Tournament in New Zealand. YEAH!

She's strong, and so am I. However we can take it much further.

Even my daughter's getting into dance. That will make her strong and nimble as a cat. The 4 year old is growing fast!

3. I wish my parents would start stocking up on supplies. Its my mom really. She's a tough gal but remains  unconvinced about how important it is to have extra food & water for at least a month. My dad... I'll get to him through her.

Their pantry is well-stocked, but it will take me at least 3 hours to make it to their place on foot WTSHTF if ever I need to conduct a rescue mission.

4. I suck at cooking. This year I will work on survival food preparation and cooking.

5. Finally I wish that the Zombie Apocalypse never happens. I'm not that kind of "prepper". I don't want bad stuff to  happen. And if I'm the only guy in my neighborhood up to his ears with survival gear & skills and then NOTHING happens, I'll be perfectly happy!

The Mayans got it wrong, the end of the world scenarios of Max Brooks & Adam Baker had better be wrong too.

And since this is a zombie blog, I'm planning to join the now-famous Outbreak Manila zombie runs. My nifty GoPro3 camera should give us some first-person action.

It feels good that I've accomplished most of my 2012 resolutions. 

So here we are, 2013 at last! Happiness and health to everybody!

Stay vigilant!
