Interior designer Every Christmas, I record my goals for the year ahead – whether it’s to spend more time with my husband or to exercise more. I’ve been aiming to cut out sugar for the past five years. This year, I’ve finally done it. My motto is: write things down and they will come true…eventually. For my father’s 80th birthday three years ago, I took him to Vietnam, Cambodia and Burma. I used to live in Hong Kong so I know Asia well. I bought this handmade, hammered silver bowl at a market in Burma. It just about fitted in my suitcase.
