Customary New Year Post

Happy new year everyone.

And of course, a belated salam Aidiladha to my fellow brothers and sisters as well.

Let's take a break from my boring Emirates trip (of course, there's more to come! :P) and reflect on the present and past year, shall we?
With the passing of another year, it's always in my nature to look back in retrospect of the events that occurred in my life in 2006. Everyone does it anyway. What makes me any different?

In all, 2006 has been a nice year to me. Of course, there were the bad times and sad times as well. My dear Pak Lang passing away this year probably the saddest. Al-Fatihah.

Alhamdulillah, the good times were aplenty. Notably, I spent half of 2006 with my fellow colleagues from the Gomen during DPA. Based in Bukit Kiara, we went through a lot together and the six months with them will certainly be remembered by me for years to come. Going through the Polis, Bomba and Tentera module certainly tested my physical limits. And BTN, OBS and the anak angkat program in Kelantan certainly tested me mentally more than physically.

By having ceremonies and a certain Jebat performance by someone, DPA certainly was a blast. I met new acquaintances, reconnected with some from the past and formed a close friendship with others. It certainly was the highlight of 2006 if not my life.

And I travelled a lot this year compared to before. With the DPA program, we were already going up and down places I would never imagine myself to be at. With a lonely planet trip to Bandung in July plus an unlikely visit to London last week, 2006 has really been kind to me. I opened up my eyes to Malaysia and the world the past year. Hopefully, this is just the beginning of a long, long journey.

With the end of one, comes another. Sadly some good things come to an end and I guess that's how Allah shows us the way. I never thought it would happen, but it did. I met you. People say in the beginning you always like to talk about destiny and such, so let me just say I would be more than happy to see where destiny takes us. I just hope we'll reach there together.

I don't know what to expect in 2007. Of course, we all hope for the best. Resolutions? I guess it's to progress in my career and to really plan for the future. *wink* I will be looking forward to people uniting in 2007 while some new ones will come out this year, notably a certain niece/nephew for Uncle Stone.

I do not need reminding that I will be 27 anytime soon and that it's been 10 years since I left school. 10 years after SPM. I never thought I'd reach here. Speaking of school, it's our Golden Jubilee this year for my alma mater, STAR Ipoh. We certainly got the new year started on the right foot.
I hope there'll be a grand celebration and I will be looking forward to OBW this year. I really hope I won't miss it.

So many things have occurred in the last days of 2006, notably Saddam's hanging on Aidiladha itself. Let me just say as I always hope for, that the world will be a better place in 2007. World peace actually starts with ourselves. Let's make peace with the world and the people around us, because we all count. I would like to remind myself and you could too; to be nicer to people around me. I think there's always a start somewhere. No harm trying, eh?

Have a great 2007 everyone! :)
