This Blog Is One!

Yup! From the humble beginnings 365 days ago and 427 blog entries later (and not forgetting my pet projects "08online", "Something Smells Fishy..." and "Air Itam United"), this blog has been in existence for one whole freaking year! Whopee! Time to celebrate! Hmm...but how to celebrate?

Pop the champagne? CHEERS!!!

Kneel down and do it the Homer Simpson way? WOOHOO!!!

Shout emphatically like the woman above? BOOYAH!!!

Or maybe choose the path taken by the man above?!?
Ok, ok...maybe that's taking it a little bit too far.... (shudders in fear) :P

It has been a long and eventful year indeed. If not for my recent busy schedule and the enforced sabatical due to Blogger's faulty splog detection algorithm, this blog could have easily passed the 500 entries mark! Yes, I had that much nonsense to say. :P

Starting from this year, I've changed the way I blog. Entries have been far and between (more obvious in the past few weeks) compared to daily and frequent blogging in 2005. I've decided to be more particular in my writing (as if I wasn't particular enough! :P). I've decided to write more from the heart on topics that matters to me. It was part of my New Year's resolution, you see (which included having more pictures in my entries). Due to that, entries have increased in length much to the horror of some readers but delight to some others! Hey, you can't please everybody, right? :P

The most popular entry seems to be Tong Hua (Fairy Tale) which continue to receive daily hits by fans of Michael Wong. Can't blame them really, it is a wonderful song! Some other popular entries include the Tammy NYP sex video scandal, the Malaysian Police ala Abu Ghraib controversy and the recent wardrobe malfunction at Lakme India Fashion Week. These three I put down to the 'curious minds' for their popularity. ;)

In the same time period, the nation lost two promininent figures (Datin Seri Endon and Tun Ghafar) and I lost a friend to a car accident. May they all rest in peace. London received the rights to host the 2012 Olympics and was immediately rocked by explosions and devastation the following day. The saddest part of this tragedy was the death of an innocent man mistaken to be one of the London suicide bombers and the outrage after more details were revealed about the shooting of that innocent man.

Petrol prices were increased three time; in May and July 2005, and most recently by a whopping 30 sen in February 2006. All the price hikes were not well received by Malaysians but the aftermath of the most recent price hike was the most devastating and still could be felt to this very day.

I did consider quitting during the enforced sabatical but I guess that's behind me now. I've not been blogging very regularly lately and this might go on for a while longer but rest assured, this blog will still be updated for those who suffer from JSYK-withdrawal-syndrome. :P

I've enjoyed my first year blogging (although I did drag my feet before deciding to jump right in) and I just can't wait to see what the future will bring. Thank you all for your support and I look forward to blogging for many years to come (I can just hear my detractors shuddering :P).
