Looking Back at 2009

Now we come to yet another year ending with a blink of an eye. As promised, I shall wrap up the memories I collected last year before it's time to start afresh.
PS: This is a scheduled post.

The year was full of bittersweet changes.

It started with everything ending.

Like a grand symphony at its resolution.

It's no longer high school.

But that doesn't stop us from reliving the memories.

Besides new places now seem like old friends.

Old friends seem as close as family.

While family...well...stay that way.

With the new buddies pouring in...

And the different adventures along the way...

(Plus you've been brave enough)

Situations hardly seem new anymore.

Then suddenly people start leaving for better things ahead.

You can't help but miss them so.

You may not know if they'll return.

But you'll be there if they do.

Of course, college asks for a lot.

But sometimes it can be mixed with pleasure.

Though some things may repeat themselves

They can be better this time...

As long as you give your all.

Endings can be beautiful beginnings.

The same way it's hard to keep away from the sweet stuff.

It just means that it's time to experiment.

Like putting new twists to tradition.

Making them the best moments

Till the division of reality and fantasy starts to blur...

That's when you realise that life is one big drama.

At 18, there is only one way left to go...


Happy New Year, guys!

May this year be as exciting as you want it to be!

Cat like

Have you wondered what it feels like to sleep like a cat?

It's pretty simple, actually. You just relax and lie on the couch 24/7, minus lunch, dinner, and grooming time.

I guess it is good to catch up on long-forsaken sleep, since I admit I haven't been getting much of that. But really it's such a waste of time! I spent all day either emptying my stomach or dozing off instead of doing Chemistry.

And it just dawned on me how near everything is than it was two weeks ago.

Dare I say Best?

Time for the Christmas post! It happened so fast, was yours too?

Normally we'd return to our hometown, but we ended up staying home for dinner - A big one, of course.

Snacks/ Appetizer (We're going full course!)

Potluck dinner!

Save the environment by writing your name on the cups. It's fun too...

Guess whose cup belonged to which cousin!

Then the dessert - one of Mummy's signature cakes.

Happy Birthday, Pa!

It wouldn't actually be complete without games. That's where Cluedo came in for the cousins.

And a bit of PS2...

Or get really twisted, a family favourite.
Since a bunch of us were having a sleepover, we spent the night watching a twisted movie, 'The Orphan'. I tell you, shows are really scary when they make the little innocent children the culprits.

Our scream-ometer shot up high thanks to Pei Pei who always had the tendency to jump out from dark rooms. Then we chatted the night away.

Natalie said it was the best Christmas ever. Dare I say yes? Hmm... you know what? It's the far. Leave room for improvement, right?

At least it is something I may come to miss one day. Probably that's why I got a little sad when they mentioned how they must do this again next year.
