t’s the last day of the year 2008. A lot of stuff has happened this year, which has made this all the memorable and i’ll forever treasure it. Looking back, I did quite a fair bit this year. Nothing that has been smashingly out of the park kind of homerun – but at least i started and did something, even if it is small for now. Taking a walk down memory lane to see what i’ve done..
At the beginning of 2008 February to be more specific. I left my stable job at McCann Erickson, which was also the place I first met miss Pam Song from TinkiTalks…Taking me away from seriously fun and whacky people… and a building that had momentary shaky movements from a minor earthqauke. Read about the earthquake incident here.
That’s when we had evacuated it and this is the best pic i got of the days i had in McCann with everyone in it
Shortly after I left, I went for the Joe Hasham acting for beginner’s class. Which was where I met a number of people in the KLPAC family lol.
It was also the year that i spontaneously went down to Singapore just so that I could try an audition for a spot in some musical. That was mad! But I did and in the end two great thngs came from it. I got a nice experience to see what the competition was like over there. And I got to meet the other nuffnangers from Singapore! Met up with Valerie from Dweam, Pink Smurf, Nadia Bennylava, Jayden and even Ming himself That was a seriously nice surprise and it was loads of fun! I have to do it again. Plus I got to see my long lost Monash mate Erin Read my post here.
Then after the Acting For Beginner’s class ended, i was part of the ensemble for the musical production Ismail The Last Days. That was a wonderful experience and journey. Singing with a full live orchestra and dressing up in different costumes heheh, can’t beat that. Read my post here.
This years Merdeka was probably the best one I’ve ever had! It was a super blast just hanging out with people. Chilling with pizza and soda, to the point we were bushed hehe.Read my posts here.
Not forgetting that there was also the first time I went to an animal party! It took me a whole night to make thos darn wings! Read my post here.
Not forgetting of course that was the first time I met up with a random bunch of bloggers for a movie and hence the term DGMB was formed. Read my post here.
I had my first recording session with The Children Bible Explorer Series. That was fun! You can find out more about the series here at PristineWorld. Can you see the man in red trying to show us the big picture. Bwahahaha Read my post here.
Remember this one. So promsy hahaa. Yet another blogger’s outing with bloggers Nick Dorian, Min Li and Amran. Here we are at J.W.Marriott for the event Made of Honour. Read my post here.
Ah yes then I managed to get passes to the Malaysian version of So You Think You Can Dance. Read my post here.
I had my first Masquerade party and my sister came along with me for it! It was actually my friend’s mom’s 50th birthday and she wanted it to be real fun… It really was loads of fun. Read my post here.
Back tracking a little. At the same time with Ismail, I also got involved with a highlight (for me anyway). Being a part of the Footstool Players, which I have been trying to get into contact with for the pass year. Heh.. God works in mysterious ways here. Who would’ve thunk that Mister G had a friend who was close to Colin Kirton. Tee hee. From there it was a whirlwind journey. Acctual acting! Eeeeekkk ohhhh the joy! A thousand blessings too that the show did really well too. Read my post here.
Oooh and how could i forget that I landed a spot with the 3D animation series Saladdin. Making me a motion capture actor. Nothing to be go oooooo at surely but it’s still a pretty cool job. No post for this one.. sorry.. maybe later on this year
Oh yeah and then the mad mad trip and job of having to spend time at the PC Fair to help promote the Intel Core 2 Duo, Intel Corei7 and the Intel Core 2 Quad. Never again will i go to a pc fair… unless of course I’m paid to do so. It was a fun and exciting thing altogether I have another first here, which was me driving at a crazy hour to Penang and for the first time seriously driving around Penang on my own. Ok yeah I had people in the car, but it still counts. Hey it’s not a big deal to you, it is to me! Hmph
Finally the icing on the cake for the year was when I managed to get into Astro-Nida. I don’t think you need me to write about it again cause it would bored you. But that was a fantastic experience and lets see what happens. Read my post here.
You know… we can always start our year a bit rough. Some of us would like to pick at the things we weren’t able to do or such. Some of us may complain because of the situations they are in currently. Some may not even like the new year that’s coming because there is really nothing to look forward too.
After looking at the pictures in this post and just thinking about the journey I had this year. I have to say…
I really enjoyed my year… I’m glad I did this post because it made me smile just thinking of all the good times I had this year. Be it in my so called career line. Could be just meeting new people. Going for some fancy event. Whatever the thing is…
Finally as the year comes to an end, i’m spending it with a person who is dear to me. As much as I bicker with him, I love the fella a lot. My end of the year wish is that I hope to see that I love him all the time, and see nothing else Likewise I hope that he will see me looking at him with love.
So here’s looking forward to a New Year. May everyone have a blessed 2009 and may we keep looking forward to the great things in life.
