A New Year Is Upon Us ...

So, the last day of the year is finally upon us and it's time for resolutions and all that once again. Through the years I've made countless New Years resolutions and I've so far failed to keep each and every single one of them to date ... LOL! I've promised myself to do this or that, to give up this or that, to start this or that and so far it's been pretty unsuccessful. This year I'm not even going to bother making any New Years resolutions, why bother right, when I know I'm not really going to keep them for long ...

Nothing really significant has happened this year in my life. I know this was the year that changed my perception about bloggers and blogging in general when I decided to try blogging one fine day in February. And since then, I can't seem to stop blogging and I don't see any signs of slowing down ... LOL! I've had some pretty good benefits career wise but that's about it. Nothing else of significance happened that I can think of that would make this a truly memorable year.

But then it really doesn't matter cos I have a great family, a loving wife who adores me (you do, don't you honey? Don't you? DON'T YOU? LOL!) and I in turn adore her and worship the very ground she walks on :D We're all healthy, well, the bones creak here and there but overall we're all in generally good health. What more could I want in life?

'well, more money and that island with those topless dancing girls you've been dreaming of would be nice :D'

urrrrmmm ... what topless dancing girls? You trying to get me in trouble with my wife or something? And besides, just who in heavens name are you? You've been invading my blog with some silly comments quite a bit recently ... LOL!

But all that aside, I'm looking forward to what challenges 2008 is going to throw my way. I've had some pretty tough and trying challenges thrown my way this year, both personal and work related and I'm just glad I somehow managed to sort them all out and survive through it all. I'm really hoping that next year will be much more rewarding to me and to all you guys out there too.

So, what plans do you guys have planned for the countdown tonight? I don't have any plans to usher in the new year. I'm just going to be at home, watch the countdown on TV and catch the fireworks display from one of the malls nearby which I can see all the way from my house, that's about it. I'm not really the partying kind, those days are long gone ... hehehe ... so it will be a quiet and mellow new year for me, just the way I like it.

Well, I've got to get some work done (yes, I am at work today!) and then send my car to the mechanic (again!) for some major repairs again. It's been giving me headaches since Christmas day and I've just been too lazy to send it to the mechanics, but I can't put it off any longer. I'm inclined to just send the car to a scrap yard or something! That'll learn it ...! I've also got tons of assignments to complete, and one of it is on cerebral palsy and for the life of me, I don't know how I'm going to do that one!


  1. Nick agreed with you on "partying kind" do i..maklumlah, when age getting oooolder ni, i prefer to sit at home only and watch the countdown from tv. Hehe..but i bet you lagi fun because your wife sit besides you and together tengok tv..ahaks..

    Anyway..wish you luck for the challenge that you looking forward in 2008.

    P/s: Of course wifey adores you very very very much..

  2. Ha ha ha...good luck with ur assignment!

    And have a wonderful 2008 with ur family and friends! Hope this new year brings you greater peace, success and of coz $$$$$! :):):)

  3. Jiejah - LOL! yeah, partying isn't for us old fogeys, I'd probably hear all my bones creak to the beat if I were to party ... LOL!

    Here's Wishing you a Blessed and happy New Year.

  4. Happy New Year to you, your lovely wife and cute boys!

  5. Marzie - I don't think luck is going to help me with that assignment. I wonder if I could get help from Einstein or someone ... LOL!

  8. Ouch! Working on New Year's Eve? I took leave to stay home to send 2007 away and also to welcome 2008.

    May it be yet another good year ahead. ** Chuckles ** Hope you don't have to go to the mechanic too often. And I am sure your wife adores her husband with such irresistable sense of humour!

  9. sitting in front of the TV, you and wifey, both legs lazily stretched, eating snacks (or anything), laughing out loud at whats been on TV...ain't that just pure relaxing?

    we are gonna catch up with Heroes Season 2 series and X-men in between the life count down on TV. :)

    Happy New Year Nick. And wifey. And everyone at home. :)
