It's the Final Countdown!

Comey Ah!

It’s time again! To conjure up resolutions for the New Year!

On January 1 this year, the Usual Suspects professed resolutions out loud and to each other. While I sipped pineapple juice, I said mine was to get a job. At that time, I had recently resigned from a high-stressed, highly-sociable job stint at a tres tres-exclusive public relations firm. I remember swearing to myself DO NOT GO INTO PR AGAIN! Surprisingly, this year, I managed to get TWO jobs in TWO differing industries. How cool is that?

And if you haven’t noticed from my statement upstairs, I sipped pineapple juice during New Years. That’s because I wanted to quit drinking and jointly, smoking. Reason one was that I was drinking and smoking like no tomorrow while I was at that PR job. One of my clients, for example, is The Maker of Cigarettes (enough said). And the thing about PR is that there will always be extra bottles of champagne/wine from previous events. So imagine, during breaks, I would be sipping away Moet or sparkling at my desk. Gila!

Yes, I did drink during Merdeka (to the dismay of some narrow minded bloggers out there). And I recently have been picking up a few sticks. But, I still feel I have met my objectives and even my friends do tell me I have been extra good. (Thanks Khaylis! You’re da best!)

So what’s my resolution this year? That’s for you to find out in Laughing Matters 2006. ;) Happy New Years everybody!

We were at Telawi Street bistro or bodega or kedai or something and everyone was puffing away. And I was like, can I have one. I nearly flew across the room from the force of the NO that I got. hehe.

I've managed to give up drinking too. Its been almost 2 years now since I had a drink. I'm still working on smoking tho. What I find really helps is not to bring cigs to work. Pau kat orang selalu sangat malu, so it really reduces the amount I smoke a day.

To My Fantastic Readers :

THANK YOU for the well wishes! The transition to the new year was indeed mind-blowing. Never danced like that morning for the longest time. I felt completely happy and excited to what the year has to offer...

After receiving high amount of complaints at my lazy rate of updating my blog, I promise to try atleast post one writeup for you to read and dissect every week. Will try to do so...

And yes, overall and not at all the least, THANK YOU for the endless support for my insane ramblings in the blog world. It makes me smile to think that there are people out there who are also laughing with me at my life...hahaha...

Do take care and enjoy my misadventures in 2006! :)

Cheers, Muddy
