Here is a rundown of what I've done this year (in the shortest way possible)...
So far so good besides the back-biting and bitching going on in the office. Even it has been a year of economic turmoil and falling GDPs, I still manage to grow my brand by over 30% and just a single digit percentage under Budget. I regard this as a good achievement and hopefully I would be well rewarded! I'm really in need of money! (boss, please answer my prayers)...
Not in luck. As complicated as a intertwined grapevine. Wine is still young. Probably it needs some aging before I should revisit the wine again. Nevermind if you don't get it. Let's move on!
Ever growing. In fact, I've met some really wonderful people this year that I've never thought I would. Sometimes it's the status and age gap difference that I thought that being friends with them is impossible but hey, just be yourself and the rest is history! But the ol' friends are not forgotten. If you guys are reading this, "Hello, I still love you peeps".
A big part of my life ever since I started posting actively since 2008. I never thought that I would be so determined to update my blog regularly. Well, many things can't be predicted anyways. Blogging can be quite an addiction. It's like my daily methamphetamine. I've made quite a number of friends too from the blogosphere be it a blogger or one of my readers. It also brings me opportunities that I've never imagined like the H-Artistry parties, the advertorials and also a chance to experience BMW's Efficient Dynamics together with a group of friends.
Has always been a drama. A drama that is so over-played that it makes me sick! Who cares about politicians when they are the very ones whom f*cked up the country. Why don't they look into the needs of the people before themselves? Their thirst for power and money is just so appalling.
If you're not living on earth, then it's forgivable that you do not know that the whole world is suffering from a economic and financial crisis. However a great depression it is, some countries have bounced back and is recovering unlike our bl**dy country because of you-know-whos! I'm just so saddened that with all the crisis and broke-ness in our bank accounts, suddenly our govt thinks it's a good idea to burden the citizens more with credit card taxes and a GST mechanism that is going to be tabled. We'll be f*cked up anyhow.
I did quite a few interesting things like traveling and also trying to outdo myself. Every year, I make it a point to at least visit one country outside Malaysia and this year, I managed to cover a few places like Bangkok, Krabi, Melbourne and Sydney. No wonder I was so broke!
I'll be honest and admit that I party or rather club less than once a month. This whole year, I've gone to the clubs less than 10 times I think. Despite telling myself that I have to somehow improve my partying statistics, it's not happening! One thing, I'm too lazy to dress up and hit the club and the other, I don't have a clubbing kaki group! So, I ended up drinking at dinners often and attending lavish dinners (at least once a week) which made up half of my weekly activities. No wonder the expanding waistlines and refined tastebuds. Not really a good thing though.
And for 2010, I would love to complete a few stints that I've been procrastinating. Since I've always wanted to go diving, I'll need to get a PADI license soon because I dream to dive in Sipadan. After getting a hole-in-14 inspiration from Tiger, I wanted to pick up golf- playing for real! I'm only a half-a-bucket-once-in-a-blue-moon-driving-range golf player. On traveling, I haven't really decide which country to go but I'll be flying to Siem Reap in January! yay....
So, my dear friends, I wish you a very Happy New Year. Don't look back and regret but treasure the good memories of yesteryear's. I wish you all a better year to come and lots of happiness (to your own interpretation) and have a jolly drunk night! On this new year's eve, instead of enjoying my last day of leave, I came and slave myself at the office. Cheers!
Don't drive when drunk but you can drink and drive.
