The Best of simply ROBIN 2007

I know its kind of late now that its the second day of 2008, nevertheless, here I am, blogging, and wishing you all beautiful people out there, Happy New Year 2008. May you all have a blessed and joyful year.

I know I have promised the much anticipated an entry summarizing my ups and downs for the whole past year of 2007, highlighting the best of me, my thoughts, the people I have newly met and the events I have covered on this humble and simple blog. I have been undesiredly lazy lately, and I will not make any excuses for not updating this blog as often as I used to. If you guys care enough, please give me a smack on my perfectly formed *** slap on the back of my head to get me moving.

Better late than never, I presume.

This entry is particularly composed to outline the several well not that few actually entries that I feel do hold some special meanings to me, and for those of you lazy readers out there who only tune in to this beautiful blog for like once a month or less, then you must have missed out a heck lot of my life. Not that there is anything that huge in this ordinary life of mine, but if you do wish to catch up and not miss anything, this entry is written just for you. or else go and read the whole freaking archives for the past year


Met up with Merv Kwok. One of the wackiest and coolest blogger out there. His jokes can poke holes in Kenny Sia's coconuts. No kidding.

Met up with Sandra. Another wonderful Kuching blogger. She came to Perth, and we become coffee buddies.

Whoah, was that a long list, no?

I must say, my 2007 has been one hell of a ride. There were rough spikes all over, and I fell down more than once, and for a while back then I thought I fell so deep I could not be able to get up again.

My faith has been put to test, and same goes for friendships and my almost non-existent (but it is still kind of alive, I assure you) love life.

All I can say is, I am truly grateful I survived this 2007, and hope for the best for the coming 2008.
