hehe, first time spending my b'day outside Kuching, first time spending it in KL.
prior to that day i've already been thinking how is it going to be like and how is it going to feel? it turn out to be quite gud also haha. received many wishes frm family and frens. maybe again it's because i'm living outside so the warmth i felt is more than before.
first present that i received comes frm far far away south and comes with an attached combo wish- merry xmas+happy new year+happy b'day+happy CNY. wah...tis is my first time receiving a combo wish present>_<
thanks sz for the smilling yellow shake head monkey. it'll constantly remind me to be happy just by imating it.
thanks also to mc for the piece of secret recipe cake which taste so delicious that before my mind told me that i've should have taken the pic, it's already inside my tummy oledi>_<
received this two smiley red egg frm hj.
at the back got wordings somemore. means happiness. i found this pic to be very funny as i suddenly think of having two ways of interpretation.
1. you are in charge and in control of your own happiness and you should held it tightly in your hands, not too tight as it would break, held it just right.
2. your happiness lies in how to manage your eggs>_<
i was quite suprise to received the gift from her. actually she's also the delivery gal for another present from a familiar guy next door. haha, very suprised that he'll use this tactic haha, it's a collection of motivational short stories...yeah i quite like to read these type of books, thanks dude!
haha, oh well...something that remains the same is that i stil celebrate my b'day at karaoke:P two rounds somemore!
first of is with my swinburne uni frens at Neway One Utama. haha, this is to following the group's tradition of celebrating b'day at karaoke since is karaoke kaki:P
thanks to andrea,mike,KC,aileen. haha, it's a 3CDs in one album so in a way it feels like receiving three present instead of one haha:)
another round of karaoke is with my housemate at Green Box, Sg. Wang. oh...i'm wearing the b'day present that i received frm them...haha i think it looks quite different on me as i've never wore this type of shirt before:P thanks to albert,mq,ss,sam,yvonne,danny.
one thing good i like about Green Box if compared to Neway is that it's slightly cheaper and have free flows of drinks and snacks. The drinks they served is also more user-friendly with the throat compared to Neway. me n mike have been discussing whether it's a tactics of Neway to make you sing less song if u drink more less user-frenly drinks>_<
me waking b'day wish with microphone, wish everyone gud gud 平平安安 and healthy:)
when i want to blow the candle, i kena played pulak to blow the candles frm far away>_<
my new roomate danny, who say "i don't know how to sing one" end up singing more songs than me:p when my housemate want to take pic of him singing i sudenly took a bowl of ice-cream and put it on his hands thus creating this funny looking pose.
hehe, i wana say a very big thank you again to my friends and family who's been with me throughout these years and thanks for all the msn,sms,calls b'day wishes. it really cheer up my day:)
quarter century old le...long way to go, jia you~

Thursday, January 8, 2009
woke up this christmas morning to see something hanging on the door outside my room.
hohoho, i wonder how santa managed to drop by a present for me. cos we don't have a chimmey and fireplace here haha. i was wondering whether i've been a bad boy for the past 23 years cos santa didn't drop me present, or maybe santa's map does not have kuching inside?
the red socks contains perfume packets and stones inside. haha, of all the socks in the world, santa's socks is incredibly free of bad hong kong feet smell, now i know how he did it:P i'll be hanging up the socks in my car as perfurme and as a token of appreciation^_^
haha, anyway, thanks santa. it really cheered up my day.
wishing everyone merry christmas and a happy new year:)

as i look at the fireworks display welcoming the year 2009, i wondered what i've done for the previous whole year and what i hope to improve this coming year.
first of all, the very big changes of my life is that i'm moved to KL to work and start another new chapter of my life. hmmm...i'm already been here for 6 months, besides my poor cantonese, i should say i'm quite satisfied with the things i have and the thing's i've achieved so far. haha, but there's always room for improvement.
i'm very much glad and i've no regrets at all for making my decision to come here to work. really, i've feel that i've improved myself, gained confidence of what i can do, and perhaps abit more mature thinking? haha, so for this self improvment and career part, i've think i've achieve my resolutions for last year. this year work wil get more busy and i hope that i'll be able to manage my time well and learn more new things.
yeah, one target that i will set for myself this year is that to be more PR. as i realize that i've still need alot to improve in this area, especially when treating colleages, clients or newly met people. haha, need to think of them as my own customer so that i can treat them better haha.
for 2008, i've also been to many places within this short 6 months periods of coming to kl. i've visited kuantan, pangkor, melaka, hatyai, penang so far..
yeah~, another one of the resolutions fullfilled! hmm...where would i go this year?:P
met up new friends, and suprise also to keep in touch with some old friends. housemate has become a big part of my life also now that i'm living outside. having a housemate relationship is also something new for me, hmm...it's sort of like a friend+family feeling. sometimes u feel that they're like ur family members, sometimes u'll feel that they're like your frens. haha i'm glad and lucky that i've gud gud housemates.
haha, among the small small things that i've improved is on my mandarin pronounciation, haha, i've actually never thought that my kuching style mandarin pronounciation got many problem until i came here, haha...tanks to one of my housemate for always correcting me. i've improved on my chinese for differentciating left and right...last time i've only know how to use english to differentciate that, using chinese would took me a while>_< this small small thing is quite gud also, slowly adds up will become something. haha, hope can improve more:)
yeah...learned to use facial cleanser. kl pollution forced me to use one. oh, i think i've also improved on remembering directions, due from going to big big shoping complex and finding your car among the seas of carparks and getting lost several times. haha, up until a point, it's almost like i get used to getting lost. so when get lost, can stil feel very calm as long stil got petrol. bk in kuching, there's almost no need for this skill haha.
haha, living outside for the first time, i've also never miss my hometown, my family n my friends so much. haha, i suppose this temporary is good for me in a sort of way also. makes me cherish what i've got and i'm also getting more excited as the days near when i would come home for cny.
hmm...relationship wise, oh well...stil like that. haha got to jia you more on this part. maybe i should do more charity or "bai xin" (拜神）more:P.
knowledge wise, haha i didn't get to read alot of books though this year. i've even haven't finish a fantasy novel that i bought six months ago. yes, i like to go bookshops, there's alot of big nice bookshops in KL. but then, i always go to the comic section haha. hmmm...this one still needs to improve more. perhaps should go get some materials to upgrade my skills as well for this year.
i think for the year 2008, barrack obama has been a great inspiration. if you are not satisfy with your current situation, then you must be brave to change it! we need to believe in what we can do, and shout out "yes we can" deep in our hearts no matter how hard the challenges we may face tomorrow.
okies, lastly i wish you all a very happy new year and hope that our wishes will come true. this is houg, signing off for now~
