I reckon this will be my final post for the year 2009. This year has surely been a blast! I'm thankful to God on how the year has been & I am looking forward to a new year of hope & joy.
As I browse back on the food I've eaten, placed I've traveled, & the people who made this year an awesome one, all I can do is to just smile & thank God for all the blessings. Food, adventure, friendship - makes life so much more worth living!
"Good food eaten alone doesn't taste as good when we're with good friends, don't you agree?"
I had 117 blog posts for the year 2009 - PerutBesi Ruth sees it as an achievement despite her busy schedule :) For the year 2010, I plan to give the blog a slight uplift. It may not be the best in design, but I just wanna keep it simple, clean, & easy to read...await for that....hopefully I can get it out by the end of January 2010 cos I'll be working on a different shift for a period of time in January! *gah*

Of course there were some bad times throughout the year, but the many joyous occasions & events made the year a great one on the overall :) Truly all praise be to God for His blessings! I'm really thankful for the people whom I've met & whom I got to spend time with throughout the year 2009.
