A year that was and a year that will be...

If anything, I would say that 2006 was the year of change.

There were many changes in my life. I changed to a new web host. I changed the templates for all my sites. The focus of this blog also changed... In case you didn't know, this blog is in its second re-incarnation. My marital status changed from single to married. I also changed my mobile phone from the already quite disappointing Siemens CX65 to another quite disappointing phone - Sony Ericsson K618i. I'll write more about the phone later.

My outlook changed as well but I guess that's normal and what we would call 'part of growing up'. Well, my age changed as well... In 2005, it was 29. In 2006, it was 30. Now... It's 31. B4sket... Is the earth spinning extra fast these days?!?

Looking back at 2006, I can only remember it for the few events, namely...
- the Mahathir vs Badawi 'slugfest'... I have to say I'm on TDM's side.
- death of a very dear friend
- parts of Malaysia was flooded
- Saddam's death
- earthquake in Taiwan paralysed the net
- Nintendo Wii

Oh wait... Did we also have FIFA WorldCup in 2006?! Maybe this will also help you (and myself) remember other 2006 events.

2007... What can we look forward to it?
- Visit Malaysia Year (and the Eye on Malaysia ferris wheel erected in 2 months?!)
- Our Angkasawan making 'teh tarik' conducting last-minute thought-out scientific experiments in space (to be honest, I don't see how the experiments we plan to conduct will be useful since they are not our country's focus or core industry in the first place)
- Transformers (the live-action movie) and Ghost Rider
- new toll rates for certain highways, including a 60% increase for LDP (cr4p!!!)
- click here for more 2007 events...

On a personal note, 2007 would mean:
- trying to complete Okami
- more personal website projects
- spending more time with family and friends
- CISSP
- time for myself (self reflection & improvement)
- first year I give out angpows or red packets
any much more.

But one thing's for sure. One blink of an eye and it's Goodbye 2007 and Welcome 2008. Yes, that's how fast I expect the new year to go by...
