On Saying Goodbye '08

Here's one that goes doing all the recaps and whateva boring stuff that most people will do anyways. So if you're not interested, you don't have to torture yourself reading all my laments and rattles. Ta-daa...

Lotsa things happened in 2008. For the start, I'm turned 21. But we don't actually have the key to freedom kind of tradition. We're just 21. We're still our parents' kids. So we still get the nagging and calls every night...

January 30th 2008: Shits. It's barely the start of a new year, and I've lost something valueable. Fark. Fark. Fark. Spent the entire afternoon skipping presentation class to farking call banks and report the lost of the ATM cards in the wallet. Gotten myself a temporary identity card. Haven't come to the driving license though. Couldn't do anything about the G2K premium card too. Oh my heart's crushed into little pieces... My G2K premium card....

I can't seem to recall anything really interesting. Really. Okay maybe just some...

April 21st, 2008 ... On the Olympic Torch Relay
KK: Oooo I love their shirt! Olympic ones!
CH: Yea, love the logo!
Me: The torch relay thingy I suppose.
KK: Today right? Afternoon.
Me: Dataran Merdeka. 2 if I'm not mistaken. Why?
CH: Let's go let's go let's go!

Of course, how can I forget the first trip overseas on plane that we embarked on...

Saturday, May 17, 2008 Greetings from Cambodia
6. On food, I was told that the Khmer food are extra salty and all, no doubt, the food are quite salty, but I personally find it pretty nice. Especially the porridge. It's a must try. Malaysians can NEVER do such a porridge. Yea, even though Mum's cooking is the best in the world, but Cambodian porridge beats that. I'm not lying.

And there's the brother who finally had the wish of becoming a scholar come true...

May 13, 2008 On the First Scholar:
And I sent a text message to the little brother: Yo bro! Congrates! Now you gotta work your arse off. Medicine is not a bed of roses, you'll suffer like never before. Welcome to hellhole. :)

And the sister who became one of the first class holders...

August 07, 2008 On the 2nd 1st Class Honours
Me: Har??? Then what's the whole purpose of naming the book prize winner?
Sis: Mainly they're the first class one lor.
Me: Just for the sake of naming?
Dad: Yah.
Me: What? And have your names immortalized printed in this page under "Book Prize"?
Sis: Yah.

But I really wondered, maybe because the transition of the whole year was in the middle of the year when we shifted place, to a the hospital located 45 minutes away from where we used to be.

August 24, 2008 On Finally Moving
I'm looking forward for another fantastic year of hostel life. So far, I enjoyed myself a lot in pre-U, and definitely the last one year we moved out from hostel since April 2007. I'll be sharing room with KK, while CH will be living in a room one floor above us. YL and KW will be on the further end, unfortunately. But rest assured, it'll still be a big homey place.

Of course, how could one ever forgets about the loss of a family member?

November 09, 2008 On Saying our Prayers
It was a typical Hakka traditional funeral I suppose. It lasted for 3 days before she was being burried.She was of a ripe age of 84. She has 7 sons, and 2 daughters. She has numerous grandchildren, and a few great-grandchildren. So it was indeed a huge family gathering.

But then again, flipping through the pages of the blog, I realised lots of things happened. From shaking the butts in Euphoria, I went hopping into Quattro and Maison, not to forget UrbanAttic. And there's the gate-away to Simpang Lima and Cameron and Melaka and the charity in Sarawak... Getting to know new friends who shared the same interest in photoshooting, as well as slowly losing contact with the few dearest friends...

Not to forget I've since this year joined some dancing classes, and learnt to become an alcohol-drinker... Getting drunk in a few occasions... Covering the 2008 Terry Fox Run, joining the Canon Photomarathon, attending the my first concert in KLPac and the recital in MPO, sucky experience at the fireworks festival... And then it hit me. Hey! My life was pretty exciting and eventful after all. At least so I thought. Especially when it comes to all the records of those trips and clubs and new friends...

Maybe I have grown. Of letting go of what was never meant to be mine... And learning to cope with the emotions... With that outside from school, as well as those in school. Deaths. Bitchy doctors. Broken condoms. Depression. Friends in need. Pressure from studies and exams. Which yeah, I am still actually finding a way to keep myself from getting depressed with coping with the hatred of workloads.

I have learnt that, in coming through the whole year, all those people I have met, have helped me through in one way or another. Therefore, I am thankful to have met some of you. New friends as well as closer friends from what we thought to be just normal acquaintances. Not to forget the very special one. You know who you are.

Even though we have only been together for a few weeks, but it seemed as if we have known each other long enough. We might be drunk that night, but I am pretty clear as to what we talked about. So in some way or another, I really do hope what we have between us, will never be broken. No matter what happens. But of course, nothing actually last forever. Having said that, I still will try my best to maintain this thing between us.

And of course, those that I have offended, I would really like to take this opportunity to appologize.

So with that, I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone...

Oh yeah, you don't have to tell me why I have odd taste, but that one in my Terry Fox series is cute.
And, leave me super lenghty comments! I'm stuck at home, I need entertainment!

Dear Bong/Medie007,

As the end of 2008 is drawing near,
Gone are Santa and his reindeers,
And we all switch to high gears,
To celebrate the countdown of the coming year.

I want to let you know you’re a great blogger,
So much so that I’ve made myself your Follower,
It does not matter whether you are far or near,
You’ve brought me much laughters and tears.

So before you get drunk with that last glass of beer,
Waiting for 2009 to appear,
Let me wish you now and here,
A very happy & smashing new year!!

: )
