1月1日2008

So gone the 2007 like a rocket. If I were to reflect what I’d done for the past year, trust me, I will be sitting here forever while my mind strolling along the Memory Lane! I’m just too lazy to think, and Mr.brain who is currently still in holiday mood is not helping at all. At quick glance, all I could think of was my Hong Kong trip, a hair perm, signing an employment contract for my new job and a very “happening” Christmas/New Year break.

So yeah, I can surely recap my “happening” break, being a house slave that is! A long to-slave list which now only down to 3 items, consider that a pat on my (and Rick’s) back. After all the tidying, cleaning, brushing, spraying, washing, gardening, mowing etc, the house now looks so much better, not without massive killing of crawling insects and spiders through out the process.

See, like I said, sparkling clean till can hurt my eyes. Muahahahaha



Ok lah, I didn’t actually spend all my time 24-7 being a house slave. I had some fun too lah, otherwise life is just too sad to live liao. Agree?

The Christmas was quiet and spicy hot! No turkey or ham for dinner, but Tom Yum! Hehehehe



Then, of course the trip to Lavender Creek which I already bragged about liao.


Next, went to Catherine’s BBQ birthday dinner.



Yet another BBQ at home after a long day of hard work. There were only Rick, myself and Vell. It's summer mah, so lots of BBQs. Hehehehe


I've also spent most of my time at home, when not slaving away slaying bugs from a very cute game called Tumblebugs. That was just crazy and I am still stuck at the last level.


Finally, a spicy hot New Year day with curry laksa.



Now comes the new year, I haven't really sit down and list down my resolutions. Again, too lazy lah. However, there are 5 items I could think of at a drop of a hat. Stay healthy, be happy, work harder, a trip home to see my old folks and at least a vacation trip abroad.


Happy New Year Everyone!

May the new year brings whatever you wish for and be happy always!
