Ciao 2008, Hello 2009


The new year is almost here. Text messages have been coming in slowly but surely. The first one was from one of my VPs early this evening. With all the new and latest ways of sending messages and keeping in touch with friends, family and loved ones, it will be no surprise that the telcos are going to be the ones smiling when they tally their collections of the final day of 2008.

Anyway, as 2009 draws closer to the doorstep, looking back in retrospect, my 2008 was full with ups and downs. Work couldn’t have been more challenging and the home front was at times rocked with seasons of raging waves. I tell myself it’s just a phase and the storm will stall.

In a few minutes, we should be able to see the fireworks from the upstairs windows. Only Faris has gone over to his friend’s house to listen to music. As for the rest of us, we are safe and sound behind our doors, and glued to the telle hoping for a good movie to play on. (In my case, Nissa has completely controlled the ASTRO remote..it’s been Disney Channel for the last few hours…)

I have a few new resolutions for the year ahead, some are really personal while some are pretty trivial. Many of my resolutions (yah..things like shedding a couple of kgs, saving money, not buying on impulse etc etc) are repeat from the following years.

But most of all, I wish for the new tomorrow to bring along a whole year filled with joy, good health, rezeki and blessings from God Almighty.

Let's progress into 2009 with enthusiasm and purpose. To all friends and family far and near, I wish you a very happy New Year.

Ummi,

I heard the sound but the fireworks was no where in sight. Faris later came back and said that the fireworks macam "lemau" je. Credit crunch punyer fireworks kot...

You have a good break too yah :)

Now Faris has taken over. It's Harry Potter and Pirates of the Carribean, switching channels in between. Layannnn...

Kay,

We all pun sama...DENGAR ajer fireworks yang amatlah kuat, but could not see them!

As the clock struck midnight, Hanna and I rushed up to the 2nd floor balcony, hoping to catch a glimpse of The Curve's fireworks display from there. But, hampeh. Even though it was quite near to our place, but as SD is situated di belakang bukit which separates us from Dsara Perdana, dapat dengar berdentum-dentum ajer.

Last-last I looked at Hanna, she looked at me, and both of us just started laughing, with Hanna saying, "Mommy, we're such sad, sad, peole, huh?!" HAHAHAHAHA!

Have a great new year, Kay ;)

Zai,

Wishing you a blessed new year too!!

Wanshana,

The fireworks, don't despair, we are not missing much pun. Quiet, quiet..that's how it has been. As at noon today, there wasn't much activities.

And me down with headache..akhhaaaasss.

So Kay, here's wishing you (and family) a happy new year. You all pun had a quiet countdown eh? Sama la..I slept even before 12 midnight..hahaha..

Waterlily said...
