Goodbye 2007...

Its 31st December 2007....last day of the year.....Tomorrow will be 2008.....

Another new year....another fresh start with new hopes and wishes....

Though I'm looking forward to the new year, I secretly wish 2008 doesn't have to come. With the start of 2008, alot of things are going to be more fooling around and getting down to serious business....a year where major things have to happen and more major events in the following years and I really wish I don't have to do it.....sigh....but we can't stop things from happening right....the inevitable has to happen and the only thing i can do is just pray that things would turn out well.

Looking back at 2007, i've had a wonderful year. I'm happy and I don't regret anything that happened. Everything has happened for me to experience and learn and I'm grateful for that.

My 25 was wonderful and I can say my prime was my best! :) And it wouldn't have been totally possible with my wonderful friends around me! I love u all alot! U know who you are! :)

I'm starting the new year with a new attitude. I know it is not going to be easy but I can pull through it. One thing I can be proud of myself; my toughest moments are my best. :):)

Enough emotions there.....

I would prefer some light-heartedness....

We tried to organize a small New Year get-together on Saturday and only 5 of us turned up...that was quite bad and it wasn't really very satisfying either but the food was good. Minah, Rathika, Mark, Victor and I had western food at Botak Jones. Tasty and filling! Yum yum!

We are having another get-together this evening, hopefully the attendance is better. The most important person, bride-to-be, Kavi, has to come. We won't be able to see her till her wedding in Feb....I'm keeping my fingers crossed.... :)

This will be the last post for this blog. Am starting on a new one : Its empty for now. I'll update it from 2008. :)

I pray everyone has a good New Year's Eve and a wonderful New Year! Enjoy yourselves!! :)

The Last Friday of 2007...

The last week of 2007 is also is just like 3 days'm getting old....sigh.......i'll be in my late 20s now.....But heck I still look and feel young! :)
Christmas Eve was great!!I rebonded my hair again!! Finally after a year....I just couldn't stand my hair anymore. Outside glamour, inside gone! And I got it done at a good price. Ket happy!!! Ok, my hair looks super silky and straight here. Its the after-rebonding effect. I have washed my hair and its not that silky now.
This was taken after a good pig-out at Newton before heading off to church.
I look like Morticia......don't I? I'm still trying to get used to the flat look.

The Christmas Eve mass with Victor and Mark, wasn't really like Christmas Eve mass. We werent really attending it, more like sitting on the outside (since we cldnt get a seat), taking photos and talking cock. But those guys did pray. I was just looking around.
Christmas was good! I had a even flatter look thanks to the greasiness in my hair. I tried not to wear pottu for that day. Boy, I felt so naked!! I'm always wearing my pottu and I felt so uncomfortable without it but I guess Victor liked the look. Both of us went to Mark's uncle's place who invited us during Deepavali. It was fun there!! The aunties and uncles were dancing and having fun, more than us youngsters.
They were trying to get me to dance. I felt kinda shy since i didn't really know them. But Victor was sporting. He was dancing with Mark. The only thing I could do was laugh!
Mark was having his fun....(That's his cute mother with him!)As always, we did our usual cam-whoring! hehe!!
I had fun! Gonna have another round of Christmas visiting fun this Saturday! Cool!!! :)

Merry Christmas!

My camera has died on me! I wanna cry!! But then its 5 years old and its time I got myself a new camera too....sigh.....this means $$ flying away but nvr mind, I'll just look on the bright side : I'll be getting a new camera with more megapixel and a slimmer one....Now the hunt for a new camera begins! Till then I just got to rely on Victor to lend me his camera....hehehe....I guess the camera will be with me most of the time....hehehehe...*evil tots*

Its Christmas Eve!!! I love the Christmas season!! I've done my job of being Santa Claus and distributed my gifts for colleagues already. Received mine too!! I love my colleagues! They always get me things that I like!!

My Gifts from my colleagues for this year!
I'm going for a Christmas Eve mass, like after 10 years. The last time I went, was in Melaka, with my granny. It was fun but I had a hard time, trying to keep awake. Hopefully it doesnt happen today....hehehe.....

"Smile of God"

This came from an email:

"No matter how advance your camera is, It takes the opportunity in a million to capture something like this!"

Very nice.....

Year End is a Bad n Sad time to be broke!

I’m finally done with all my Christmas shopping. I was on super tight budget this year but I managed to reasonable gifts for everyone. Finally, I’m done with it.

Its been more than a week since I started. I’m still learning on the job. I get lost so many times!! But I guess that’s how I have to learn the job properly. The DD seems to be pretty patient with me. This position is a good change, totally different from Primary One. But I’m still trying to get used to waking up an hr earlier….sigh…..I get so tired by 9.00 pm….sigh….

I’ve learnt something very important in the last 2 months.

You cannot be nice to everyone. There are some people who would take advantage of your niceness. You have to learn to behave appropriately to some people. Don’t everyone deserves niceness. Even your family can turn against you at times. Be nice to those who deserve it. Be true to those who are true to you.

I’ve also learnt that life is fair to some and unfair to others. But every time God shuts a door, he opens a window. And many times, things happen for a reason, good or bad. No one can help you better than yourself and its better to be dependant on yourself than on anyone else, coz you never know whose gonna break your heart, when.

Valuable lesson learnt. I’m gonna make sure that this sticks in my head. Niceness doesn’t beget niceness.

I’m going broke, it’s a torture getting your pay 1 and half month later. Why can’t Jan 12 come faster!!! Argh!!!! Its sad to be broke during year end. But I did manage to squeeze in buying 3 pairs or shoes at a good bargain…..hehehe….I keep telling myself that I don’t need shoes for another 6 months. Let’s see how long I can prevent myself from buying shoes.

I’ve been good u know. I managed to prevent myself from buying clothes for the past 2 months. But I can’t say the same thing for punjabi suits though. I’ve got like 7 suits in JB for me to pick up…hehehehe….and I have another 3 more, at home, to be stitched….hehehe….I’ll soon learn to be disciplined on that area too….hehehe…..

I love her sooooo much!!!

Back to where I started....

Its interesting how life works…...truly…..Life teaches us a lot of lessons and whether we learn from them is solely in the individual’s hands….

My life totally went through a major overhaul from July to October this year. So many changes, so many ups and downs and so many lessons learnt and a lot of knowledge gained.

I’m happy that after a turmoil of events, things are slowly settling down. Almost everything seems to be getting to normal except for the small nitty-gritty stuffs that are bearable.

The year is coming to an end soon, in like 20 days!!! That’s fast!! Wow!! What a year I had! I made a decision to enjoy my prime; 25 and I did!!! Putting aside those sad moments, I had alot more happy moments to smile about and it wouldn’t have been possible without my lovely friends!!! U all know who you are!! Love u all a lot!! :) And even though I almost became broke, thanks to all that shopping, I’m still happy that I at least spent my money on myself! :)

I’m back with MOE. Interesting rite, I left MOE and came back within 3 months. And I went back to the same branch but for a different position-I’m now the PA to my Deputy Director. The current PA, Shamu, tendered in her resignation and they were looking for a replacement and they asked me if I wanted to and I agreed after strong consideration.

Well, new position but same place and same colleagues. I feel more at home here. Guess it’s the sense of belonging since I’ve been here for so long.

I have till Thursday to learn her job and then I’m left on my own. I learn better when its hands-on. Another month or so and I should be settling into my position and I’ll be doing it for the next 3/5 years or so, as a sign of gratitude. No big.

The weekend was good. We celebrated my cousin brother’s 1st wedding anniversary as a surprise to him, on Saturday. Although it didn’t turn out the way I wanted (all thanks to an uncle!), I felt happy seeing the surprised happy look on my brother’s place.

And me got my Christmas present from Victor! He bought me an anklet, with bells!! Now I’m super noisy where ever I go. Everyone in the office knows it when I’m coming!! Hehehe!! I likeeeee!! :)

My hectic lifestyle of school and tuitions have started again this week. Oh well, I just have pull through 2008 and I’ll be stable after that. I know I can do it.

Now I have my exams to worry about. I need to start mugging. My exams are less than a month away. Damn! This time, I seriously don’t understand more than half of what was taught in class. Damn! Die!!

Freedom To The People!!! Actually jus to me la...for a short while.....

I'm finally done with my assignments!!! Yippiee!!! Feel so freaking relieved and happy!!!! :):) its the exam stress but it wont build up so soon. I know i'll be relaxed for some time before I start going crazy know wat's the irritating part, my exam is in the 2nd week of Jan-7 & 8 Jan.....I won't be able to enjoy the beginning of my new year. I'll be mugging away instead....damn......And if I want to really have a good New Year Eve, then I gotto start mugging early...sigh.....damn....I'll start thinking about it later. I wanna enjoy the peace for now.......

The weekend was good, really really gooood!!!!! Before I start on that, Minah finally emailed me her birthday pics; the ones that we took at Chong Pang Nasi Lemak. Her birthday cake was yummy! I actually wanted to buy a chocolate cake but this champange cake looked appealing and it was a good choice to buy it. It really tasted nice! Yummy!!!
I finally watched live fireworks!! I never had the opportunity to watch fireworks live and I finally got to see them on Friday coincidentally!! Victor and I went to Vivocity to check out the Christmas decos there. We were done at Vivocity and were wondering what to do so I suggested stepping out for a while. The moment we stepped, they started the fireworks!!! We didnt know that there was going to be a firework display over there. I was totally mesmerised!!!! Victor started taking pics coz I was too in awe to take any!! The fireworks were really beautiful!!! I'm so in love with them!!! Really really really amazing!! I wanna see more fireworks!!!! And as always we were taking alot of photos. I think i kinda pissed Victor off with my over-enthusiatic photo-taking.....hehehe.....

-Christmas Deco @ Vivocity
-At our favourite Pacific Coffee Company. That place is just tooo cozy!

See that cute little lion on Victor's lap! Very cute rite!! I got it for him!! That lion was soooo cute, I just couldn't resist buying it for him!!! :):)
Saturday was D-Day!!!! The recording for the studio news production for my Tuesday class was due on that day. We met in the morning to record our radio talk show and also to prepare for the recording in the afternoon. Damn, i spent almost an entire day in school, on a Saturday somemore.......argh!! But I'm so glad its over! We didn't get it down in one take but we did manage to do an overall good job in the 3rd take.

-Rice, Darf, Joey and Me, after all that 'drug-packing'
-The lecturer and the Studio New Production Crew! -The Radio Talk Show Production Crew!
I had to wear a shirt since I was the newscaster...damn.....I felt very very uneasy! I felt comfortable only after I changed my top once it was over.

I clubbed!! After a looooong time!!!! I really enjoyed myself!!! We were supposed to club last weekend but we couldnt, so we went to Chakravarthy. I had so much fun on Saturday that i'm still aching all over till today!! This is what happens when u dance like mad after a 3 month hiatus!!

Mark, Victor and I went to Suntec first to check out the deco there. Those two guys made me walk all the way from Suntec to Boat Quay for dinner. Thank god they didnt execute their suggestion to walk to Lavendar from there.....I would have been on clutches now.....hehehehe......

Met Minah and Rathika at the club, together with Febian and the boogie-woogie started!!! We 3 she-devils rocked the club again!! hehehehe......Victor and I finally saw the party animals in each other!!! Hahahahahahaha!!!!
I love all the pics we took at Chakravarthy! Very niceeeee!!! :)

-This is how we started off!
-We saw the party animal in each other! I love dancing with him!
-I was the only one drinking coke...pathetic.....
