First of all, lets list out some of the good times that happened this year:
1. Michael Jackson, along with Farrah Faucet has passed away and moved on to their next life. *a moment of peace*
2. Chris Brown beat Rihanna.
3. Tiger Woods cheated on his wife with.... lots of women.
4. The massive earthquakes in the Philippines.
5. The economic crisis.
6. Adam Lambert got 2nd place in American Idol.
Hmm...... isn't this a little on the negative side?
But on the other hand, we've discovered a new disease! H1N1!
Wait.... never mind....
Okay, so yeah, 2009 pretty much sucked 50% but lets look at the brighter side of 2009!
1. America has elected its first black president (and this one is waay better than the last guy ermm... George Bush?)
2. Sophia (my cousin's wife) is pregnant again! Congratulations!
3. I officialy became one of the BRATs!
4. I had my article published in an international sports magazine!
5. Tiger Woods got beaten up by his wife. Justice is served!
6. I actually traveled overseas without my parents for the first time to Australia.
I guess in conclusion, there were some ups and downs in 2009 but, being humans, we can take it!
Have a jolly new year! Happy 2010!!

The food was excellent! Even better than excellent, if possible. Compliments to the chefs (aka, mom and the aunties)!
Did I mention that we also made chocolate fondue?
I really enjoyed the chocolate very much; its warm and creamy, and... chocolaty!
There's also the two baby girls; one from my mom's side of the family and the other from my dad's side of the family. Aren't they adorable?
Meet little Vanessa and Catherine!
So I'll skip to the next day; Boxing day! So to all those who may not be familiar with this day, boxing day, which is on the 26th December is actually the day when we open our presents. Most people who are not aware of this day usually open their presents on Christmas day itself, which is not usually part of the Christmas tradition. Thus, Boxing day isn't really that well-known even when its one of the most important days of Christmas!
This year, the presents are rather small compared to last year. But, at least they're quite useful. Majority of my presents are mainly pursus, bags, more pouches...
I also received some good books and cash (the most practical but popular gift ever)!
And now, the most interesting present I've ever received in the year 2009 is......

There's also a few places where they sell souveniers, but I didn't buy any (I'm a scrooge, you see). They sell almost anything; leather, skins, lights, T-shirts, you name it! Unfortunately though, there wasn't enough time for us to explore any further as it was about time for them to close!
I know, I know, I just had to show you that!
Check it out! Its a subway toilet! I wished I had to pee then as an excuse to use it, but I was in the car that time.

When the time came, we headed off for the bus stop for the tour. When it came, it was a huge one!

Later on, we had lunch there where the steak tasted rather bland, but the classic Fish 'n Chips beats the rest! Their cakes, including the cookies and muffins on displays were massive! Like the ones from Secret Recipe!
After that, we went round the beach doing all sorts of nonsense!
We then drove to another beach where it was extremely cold and windy out there; perfect for wind surfing!
Never in my life have I ever seen wind surfing before, but it looked like fun! Soon, many others got into their wetsuits and went into the sea with their surfboards.
Later on, we ourselves went to the beach and had fun splashing each other about at the shore! The water was freezing cold to the touch, but, you'll get used to it.
Oh yeah! While we were playing by the beach, there was this cute little dog that came by.
Yeah, I know, I don't know where are the 12 apostles either....
Not long after that, we changed into a fresh set of clothes and set off to anothher side of the beach. On the way, I noticed a lot of trailers and tents about in an area for campers. I wish I could do something like that someday, it seems pretty exciting!
