This is my first time celebrating my birthday away from home. In a way or two, there are some advantages having my birthday in Perth. One of the obvious reasons is the public holiday (YAY!!) of Boxing Day, which Malaysia has chosen to disregard and crudely replace it by some other useless and meaningless holidays. Having a day off from work for my birthday (or any day off at all) is something I truly appreciate these days.
SARAH SHYING AWAY
I guess I have been away from blogging much more than I would have wanted lately. I have not skimmed through the usual blogs that I usually read, and followed up on comments and updates. Considering the time of year, Christmas, Birthday and the coming New Year, there are loads of heavy thoughts to reflect upon, and the journey of my life so far is indeed, colourful. There is no need to elaborate any further on my thoughts, but somehow it drew me away from blogs. Nevertheless, I shall compose an entry to summarize my walk in 2007 right before the New Year 2008, and this entry would definitely be something worth reading for those of you who do not come here often, but still wish to catch up on most of the happenings in my life.
This birthday has been one of the loneliest I have ever had. Family and relatives are nowhere near, and most of my friends went MIA. Some flew back to their home countries, some went on holiday trips touring God knows where, some were busy working (it’s a freaking holiday for f*** sake) and some were just being plainly invisible. Thankfully there was still a small group of friends who were willing to spend some time to make this simple boy happy on his bithday.
DIM SUM LUNCH

SARAH, who organized the lunch, a little last minute, but everything turned out fantastic !! Thanks so much.
I shall end this entry here, before I shift into emo mode and pour out all my emo stuff here.
For those of you who have not wished me Happy Birthday, do it now !!!
