Sayonara 2008 & Hello 2009!

This is my 1st post for year 2009! So how's you new year celebration guys? Where did you hang out? Did you went out to celebrate with your kakiis? Went to watch some singers screamed their lungs out? Watch a few brawls at Sungai Wang (for Malaysians)? Hit the bar? Try to poison yourself with rounds or vodka? Or simply (over) indulging yourself in an attempt to get obese with lots of food? Whatever it is...one thing for certain is that the year 2008 is a goner! It's 2009 right now. By now, I'm certain that the new calender has flipped for almost every country right? So here I am...wishing everyone Happy New Year!

The crazy crowd at Sungai Wang!
Thank God I'm not there!

2008 is as good as dead. I have to say that the year 2008 was one of my darkest moment in my life. It is fair to say that last year, my memoirs was filled with too many tragedies! For those of you who have been reading this blog for quite a while...you all knew how my life was literally rip apart with the demise of my beloved mother. August 2008 was really the defining time of my life-everything was robbed from me! I though 8 is a good number? My mommy's premature departure has took away everything I know in my life. Seriously, till today I still fell that emptiness...that void that no one else can fill. I hope time will heal my deep, gaping wound!

I'm sure it will!

Anyway, I believe I have to move on. I'm sure my late mother don't want to see me in such a sorry state either. Yes! I have to stay upbeat and strong! And the year of Ox promises to bring in lots of goodies for everyone. Let's hope that the bullish effect will be seen ASAP! Well, after all the beers and food...it's time we set some goals for ourselves right? Or maybe we can come out with a few new year resolution! Here's mine:

Tekkaus' Top 6 2009 Resolutions!

1~Love my family more.
2~Rest & sleep more.
3~Do more exercise.
4~Trim my diet. ;P
5~Earn more $$!
6~Strive for excellency in my career.


Yes. I would love to spend more quality times with my dad, brother and my beloved wife. Time flies. That's why I switched to my current job 1 month ago. Besides I really thing I should rest more. I believe my average sleeping time for year 2008 is 4.5 hours per day. I'm not kidding! That's why I'd really hope I can be on the bed longer before I get burned! Yes my No.3# resolution is to do more exercise! I have to admit that I'm not as active as I used to be. Before this, I play basketball almost everyday...but last year I hardly could squeeze an hour each week for my ball game!

That's why Garfield is so healthy!

AND the worse part is...I maintained my huge, pampering diet...that's why my waist line is increasing astronomically! With the economy looking so feebly, I couldn't help but to try to earn more money this year. Besides I'm planning to get marry soon...so it's time my cash machine operate optimumly! Last but not least on my list is to be an excellent xxxxxxx! You guess still don't know what I'm doing right? Stay tune~:)

That's Garfield's...

...So what's yours?


Here's N'sync's Bye Bye Bye for year 2008!!!

twosuperheroes said...

Well, as dark as it is...I believe 2008 has made you the man you are today rite? If not for 2008, there won't be the changes that you are going to make in 2009. Time to get the engine running for a whole new year now! Haha... :p

Tekkaus said...

Rad Sujanto-->I didn't really went out for countdown either. Stayed at home watching the shutter! =)

Tekkaus said...

2 superheroes-->Yes. Nothing can be changed. I agreed with you 2 superheroes. Yes, the engine is up and running! Vroom!!! Vroom!!! Ready! =)

Happy new yr. Abt yr mum the pain doesnt go away..it jus decreases in intensiity n occasionally flares up. we went to 'see' her on the 27th and we all broke down. the pain is still raw. it has been 20 yrs. so i understand wat u mean.

HappySurfer said...

So sorry about you losing your mom, Tekkaus. Time heals, just give it some time.

But now, time to look forward to fresh new experiences so here's wishing you all the best in the new year and may all you wish for come true. Happy New Year!!

That was exactly the crowd I got lost in one year. Never again but good while it lasted. Cheers!

Tekkaus said...

Lisalicious-->Yupe! You can say that again. Imagine yourself being closed inside of it. Did you read the paper today? There are brawl and snatch thieves happened. Damm! =/

foongpc said...

Luckily I was not anywhere near Sungai Wang. I avoided the crowd on new year's eve and just went to a not so crowded place to have a drink and still be able to watch the fireworks!

I understand how you feel about losing your mom, and all the unfortunate events in 2008, but let's face it, life is full of ups and downs. If you've been down, just be happy cos the "ups" are coming! Nothing stays down forever because that's how the universe works : )

Hey, when are you going to reveal your new job? Don't keep us in suspense lah! : )

Monk said...

I lost my grandma in december. i know how u fill when someone dear to u aren't here anymore. i feel empty too.i wish she is still here.

Yea. how are doing? Got a job already? Later rich liao . organize marine science reunion at hilton hotel. lol..

Tekkaus said...

Beng beng-->It's totally impossible to forget someone who raise you up right? Thanks for commenting beng beng! =) Happy new year.

Tekkaus said...

Happysurfer-->It's ok. Yupe time will heals...or at least..alleviate the pain. Yupe Happy New Year to you too. I was trapped in such a crowd too last year. And that once is more than enough. Hahaha =)

Tekkaus said...

Foongpc-->I tell...sungai wang is like a chaos during new year eve. I went there once with my wife. The people mountain people sea was not mobile in any way. We have to push, push, push and push our way to starbuck for breather. haha =)

Yeah! I knew this is part and parcels of life...but I just couldn't accept it at times. Yupe, the UPS are coming I can see it. Haha =)

About the new job...I'll give you a hint. I will start officially only on the 5th. Ha =)

Tekkaus said...

Monk-->My deepest condolence to you too. I'm sorry to hear that. It must be hard for you too right? =( I'm sure she's supporting you all the way from heaven right now.

I'm doing fine. Yupe! I got a job already. Hmm...this job won't make me rich. Just give me more time. Haha =) Ok, we can hold a reunion in the future. Wooohooo!

Thanks for the compliment Monk. If not for your encouragement back then...I wouldn't have started blogging at all! Again, 10q! =)

Actually the 1st month she bought is already rosak o. But then still in warranty so ok lor. After that, everything is fine. =)

Monica-->Thank you too for dropping here too. May you have a great year too. =)

Angie Tan-->Same here. Thanks. All the best to you also. :D

Jim said...

Hi Tekkaus, thank you for your comment. I wish you an absolutely wonderful and happy year ahead. As some of my previous commentators said, time will heal especially when you let it heal. Stay positive - I found that it helped immensely for me when I was depressed or sad :D

Also, in reply to your enquiry, yes the WiMax in my area is faster than Streamyx's best connection so far. I compared using Youtube's buffering speed and also the speed of some online games I play.

If this helps I hear P1 Networks is going to expand the WiMax network to Malacca as well. :)

Tekkaus said...

Jim-->Thanks. Really? Wimax coming to malacca? Great. I wish they can land here asap! =) Thanks for the info Jim! You have a wonderful ahead of you too ya.
