If You Don't do it, You Don't Really Believe it. Some people spend their whole time searching for what's right, but they can't seem to find any time to practice it. Your life story is not written with a pen, but with your actions. To do nothing is the way to be nothing.

08 in review

the last sunset have set for the year. tomorrow, we welcome a new year,2009. according to the experts in the papers it says 2009 will start with a bang but gonna end in not a good way. but coming back, to present. its time to look back at MY 2008.




thinking back, am going to the same place like last year.


to one utama, but this time with a different crowd.


how things have changed,


and let the past be just a memories,


let it be good,


let it be bad,


most of all,


we learnt,


i learnt,


or we are all just learning,


life sometimes can be a cruel teacher,


but at the same time


it can bring the greatest of joy.






cny 08.



nobody else but the dear michelle to be around, and busy-ing manja-ing herself. this new year am glad that i can visit my old house, my nanny, and all the people that i used to live around with. its good to hear from them again, and nice to see that they are doin just fine.








enchanted night 08



my first prom with my friends from mmu. and also marked the first prom that i come without a date, although end up dancing with 3 different girls. guess thats not bad after all huh? :P










jap week.



my first time getting involve in some activities in campus at cyberjaya. more to my curious and playfulness to try out. so i did a favour for a fren as they are lacking of male usher. a decision that i din't regret.have tons of fun.








farewell...




the night on the japanese night, i missed the bon odori as i say goodbye to one of my good fren,
my macha, my homie, the guju which is dharmil who left for australia to further his studies. 2008 also saw another good fren of mine, raja ez-man left for the uk. guess its expected that after form 5, each of us have our own separate ways to follow.but a good thing it that we kept in touch.





kickboxing

being curious since small to learnt some martial arts, but was restricted as my parents
fear that i would use that for fights, now 20 years old, i guess i know where to apply those moves. in addition, make some new friends too over here.








as life is now always a rainbow coated chocolate, or in other words there are hard


time too. for me personally, one of the hardest time come this year. in the middle of the year


i guess i don't have to mention what happened. in addition to that, there also some


conflicts among friends which pops out of nowhere, and certain academic glitches.
with all happening at the same time,well its a difficult time.



as i kept my faith, am lucky to have a rainbow at the end of the tunnel =D






3 of my best friends.



this is our first trip togather. after years of friendship. thanks to them, to help me out during my period of difficulty. i still do miss doing crazy things with them around.
around the same time too. i shifted. shifted to a new place. new area. new surrouding.
goodbye bangsar and hello bukit tinggi. its not that bad as it first initially tought. of course i
cant stay long for dinner in kl, or miss out on spontaneous mamak outing in the evening.
but on the bright side, i got lots of visit from my mates. who come down for food.





austral 08.

although trip with friends and with all the shifting, still some of the trouble bothers me.so i decided to tryout for Voices ( MMU debate team). i never tought that i could make it, finally they called me and asked me to pack my bag to Manila. Austral is the 2nd biggest university debating tournemnt in the world- wiki. just behind WUDC (world uni debate competiton) which i wish is happening right now in Cork, Ireland. would be nice to meet up with miku, prae,lukmo again.but i guess i have to sacrfice all that for my acedemic studies.

nevertheless, i guess Austral 08 was a turning point for the year 2008. lots says i've change after the month stint in Manila. Letting all the woes there and come back fresh.

lot of 1's that i did over there




maybe for some that won't belive that i never go to club before, since staying in bangsar,everyone have the perseption that u club. and drink. well 2008 is the most alcohol consumption that my body took, even if u add up all the alcohol that i took in my 20 years of living still cant beat 2008. in Manila, almost every night we have socials event which is held at clubs. thus its club-er most wildest dream. imagine a free entree to the top club in the country, and free flowing drinks with guys/girls from different country. and only the club is exclusively for you. well, guess i know why some get addicted to clubbin. the free spirit freedom to do whatever. till one day, you will look at yourself, thinkin "WTF am doin?"

on the bright side, its also my first time having friends with people from different nationality.it certainly broaden my view, and its very interesting in a crazy mix that sometimes they all just same as you, have the same problem growing up and sometimes they are very different than you and how you are brought up.

its also my first time saw 'pot' and 'weed' not that i smoke it but certain people do.

dodgeball

coming back from Manila, with a much more open mind, am curious to try new stuff, thus gave a shot at dodgeball. was really a fun activities to do with a big group of friends, especially if u can knock ur opponent out- with a headshot.




having car-2weeks

my brother left for Thailand for work for 2 weeks, thus he lend me his car for that period of time to drive to campus, and at the same time, the global oil price is on a all time high. but, i won't let the chance of driving around in cyber slip by. its very convinient to have a car over here,seriously. thus went a lot of jalan-jalan. maybe this is the reason my parents not getting me a car- they know me too well..



mooncake festival
i cant remember how old the last time i play with lantern.apart from chinese new year, i hardly celebrate any chinese occasion. of course there is mooncake at home, but the celebration is much more fun this year. because most of all the people around me in MMu, do celebrate it, thus i tought me a thing or two about chinese tradition, my own tradition.







the unexpected- best man
what a suprise it was when i was the one chosen to be the best man for my cousin wedding. i did saw picture of my siblings when they are the best man and flower girl for my uncle wedding, i was still and an infant that time. glad that things work out well.

they say when your luck is so low, it will go so high when the tide change. somehow i belive

that. i experienced that this year. and am thankful for all of that. the low tought me how to be

stronger, the high tought me how to appreciate the little things of life. there is always ups

and down in life. its a trade-off. sometime you are lucky and sometimes well, you are not.

the wave of life, maybe that what makes life interesting, instead of a constant- which leads to

boring life, life sometimes can be an anology of a sine wave, sometimes high and sometimes

low. happy 2009 everybody. wish everyone the best, and thousand of apologies for my

mistakes.



everyone i know have got a reason.. to say "you can put the past away"
so lets start 2009 a new my friends.
