Goodbye 2008, Hello 2009


I shan’t bore you with resolutions or a review of the past year this time round. Instead, I decided to pay tribute to the end of a good year 2008 & to start off the year with a photo collage ….  I took these pictures on the 30th of December in the heart of the city along Jalan Bukit Bintang, Jalan Sultan Ismail …..

It was a brilliant blue sky day .. the sun was shining brightly… it was a riot of colours, colours, colours & more colours …. such a pleasure to soak in this happy atmosphere that day! 


 A befitting end to a fantastic year & a sign of hope for better things to come in 2009!!!!!

Wishing everyone a Happy Healthy 2009 … may it bring you one step closer to your dreams & aspirations!!!!!!!  Thank you all for your friendship & love!

p.s. OK … maybe a little update on what’s been happening..

  • bought a X’mas present for myself in December… to rephrase, HAD TO … buy myself a pair of  prescription reading glasses…  dog gone fonts for books seem to be getting smaller & blurrier..
  • took up photography thanks to an anniversary present by Fat Dragon .. realised that I’ve got a talent for pointing & shooting … aahhaahahah… not necessarily fantastic pics .. but decent lah. Check them out here if you like …
  • indulged in outdoor activities to the max … so I can now jog non stop for 5km in about 1/2 hr .. hope to push it to 10km under an hour this year!
  • made numerous new friends who share a passion for eating, drinking and being merry – & most importantly – hunting for waterfalls & giant rafflesias! Absolutely great to be able to commune with kindred spirits.. fantabulous I say … (if there is such a word)
  • bought myself a MAC BOOK … so am now in the midst of pulling my hair out trying to figure it out!!!!!!
  • indulged into the world of translation for the very first time involving cartoons for a TV network .. am happy to report that the language used in these productions are totally inappropriate for young kids & absolutely filled with violence! What happened to things like Snoopy? or Scooby Doo? Sigh…. culture shock for me indeed!
  • most importantly, was able to experience all this together with Fat Dragon! Thank you for sharing these moments with me!
  • Resolution for the year: CLIMB MOUNT KINABALU!!!!!!!!!

  1. About time, Shorthorse! I was about to post a comment on your previous post to remind you of the significance of Jan 1st. Anyway, looks like you had a great 2008 but 2009 will certainly be even better…all the best for the mountains, welcome to the reading glasses club, and Happy New Year!

  2. Ahahaha…. thanks for your loyal support Pink Jeans … you make my blogging activities so meaningful!!!!! As for the month long absence … well, wordpress decided to redesign their dashboard AGAIN – & its really slowed up the blogging process. So I just shelved it & took to Facebooking instead… hey, have you got a Facebook account?????

  3. It was a Great 2008. Could only be better in 2009. 🙂

  4. I don’t do Facebook, and I won’t ever be able to, coz my kids are not allowed to….can’t have double standards, right?

  5. asme: Aye aye to that!

    PJ: Quite rightly so! Well, it’s a good call actually coz FB is darned addictive… considering it can bring people to share common interests, it is a place for sharing photos, for chatting, for blogging, for sharing events, whatever … Darn it … it’s even got us thinking about starting a Roaring Forties group..ahahahahaahah!!!!!! But before that i think we need to start a REHAB group for helping ppl with FB addiction….

  6. Hey.. wish you and Fat D a very happy, and a more adrenalin rushed 2009! 😀

  7. Thanks Gina: Wishing you a great year ahead of you too ~ May it bring you closer to your dreams & aspirations! Thanks for your friendship 🙂
