Selamat Tahun Baru 2009!

Firstly, I'd like to wish everyone a very:


I didn't do much on New Year's Eve! Was meant to meet up with my cousin Yusri who just got back from Australia that very afternoon, but that was cancelled! Gomen ne, Yus-kun! :( Unfortunately, I came down with the flu, what a way to start the new year!

Anyway, a bit of reflection, 2008 was a pretty good year for me. I achieved quite a bit:
  • I started a new job.
  • I made new friends and got to know some of my relatives better.
  • I started doing yoga (and can now do a headstand - not perfectly yet, though!).
  • I managed to lose some weight (but need to lose more and get fit, hehe!).
  • I started drawing more and established a manga-drawing circle with Pip & Fel.
  • I finished my German language course.
  • I started saving for the future.
  • and so on...
As for last year's resolutions, I only achieved 60% of them, so I must thrive to achieve better in 2009. So without further ado, here are my resolutions for this new year:
  1. Improve my skills in Business Finance.
  2. Continue with my Japanese language lessons.
  3. Improve my Malay, German and French language skills.
  4. Achieve punctuality.
  5. Draw at least one manga.
  6. Lose weight and MAINTAIN the weight loss!
Hmmm, my 2009 resolutions aren't exactly major life-changing ones, but that's okay. I'm not putting any of those in the list, since they are ones I constantly try to achieve and improve on - they do not need a time limit, hehe.

Oh, yeah, I changed the look of my blog yet again - this time to mark the New Year! ;) I've never used a manga/anime image for my background before, so this is a nice change! I decided on the Ren-sama and Kyouko pairing for the first one! XD Can you tell that I love "Skip Beat!"? Haha! Anyway, hope everyone's enjoying the first day of the new year! Peace! ;)
