Here We Go

I have not been away, just disconnected.

It's already 2008, and perhaps it's too late to do a post mortem of 2007. However, since we're all our own Napoleon on our repective blogs, I chose to do so nonetheless. Let's see, where shall we start?

Positives: found someone wonderful, moving into my own house, travelled to East Malaysia twice for music fests, bonded closer with old friends.

Negatives: contracted dengue, lost some old friends.

That's all I can remember really. A year is a terribly long time to recall. So in short, 2007 has been a great year in that I've had more ups and downs. Resolutions? I don't make one on New Year's Day, I make em on my birthday instead. Enough about new year, it's getting old.

I spoke of losing old friends somewhere up there. It was sad really. Some friends, it was me who always did the initiative to keep in touch etc. I can say I've lost 4 friends:

#1 had some personal issues and said that she's erasing me from her life.

#2 slinked away into the dark due to inferiority complex. All his friends got good jobs, while he's still unemployed almost 2 years after graduation. Actually it's his own doing, never making an effort to actually find a decent job.

#3 & #4 were the type who never made the effort to keep in touch with me since I left uni. When they did, it was only to borrow a sizeable sum of money. It saddens me than I am reduced from being a friend to just a pile of money to them. No I did not give a cent to either one, and I decided to not be friends with both of them anymore, bloodsucking bastards.

On New Year's Day, I had a housewarming for my close friends. I invited only those I consider close friends and I think they can make it. If you're not invited, then it's either one of the two reasons. 40 turned up, it was great seeing all these faces in one place for me. I hoped everyone had fun, had enough to eat (though I'm sure not enough places to sit since some took the liberty of sitting on my TV cabinet even!). I'll upload the pics when I have the chance to. So much to say, so much has happened since I last blogged. Just hope that TM will connect the damn line soon enough so I can blog whenever I like.

For whatever it's still worth, Happy New Year!

sorry i couldnt make it that day, kau masak ke babe, rugila aku kalau camtu hehe.

nway, its not that u are losing losing your friends or a'thing, they, we all drift apart at some points - time, distance, lifestyle. its not that we forget or we thot of old friends as insignificant anymore, we are just in general, very bad at keeping in touch, kan kan kan? ke aku je? hehe.

those bastards you were referring to, i dont think they were your friends in the 1st place, as in real friends, you know.

hi to ninie, hi ninie!
