The Year That Was 2007

Goodbye year of the Pig and welcome year of the Rat (Rat rat is very enthusiastic about it for some odd reason...)! So for those who is born in the year of the rat, you're gonna be 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72 and 84 years old (any older would be pushing it.). I'm gonna recap the happenings the year that was 2007.

Year 2006 ended with me in my host company for internship and mid year of 2007 it ended. That was some experience. I truely treasured it and the friends I've made in the company as well. Which explains why La Faghag and I were in the Annual Dinner in the first place. Contacts!

During the same time as well I was in an emotional turmoil. Love lost, depression hit, I was in my all time low. Yep the Breakup. But we managed to patched things up few months after that. Love you still McDave.

Made lots of new friends, this month in particular due to the Red Carnival inconjunction of World AIDS Day. More activities to participate as well by Pink Triangle Foundation as well as LPG-Community. I feel like an uber "semangat" gay advocate (only through participation of events).

Also, met more bloggers in person which is always a fun thing. Seeing the person behind the blog for the very first time. Some have resemblance to their blog, some are just totally different.

My stuffed toys collection expanded to five with the new recruits Pink Lion, Sharkie and Moo moo! They're so adorable and I love them lots. Though Rat rat is darker and stinkier than before... Hehhehe. Lets not discriminate now.

Bought my second handheld, the PSP, after 12 years since my first, the Gameboy. I still think its such a great buy and one of the best gadgets of the year. Play MP3, plays MPEG4, photo viewing, tonnes of lovely games, TV connectivity, WIFI and multiplayer capability through WIFI and ad hoc.

It is also my first time purchasing a flight ticket to another country, Bangkok (technically I still owe JL for paying for the tickets in advance for me) and also going with the blogger gang next year. Never made such split micro second decision about spending before. There's always a first time in everything yes?

Another milestone that I have made this year is coming out to my mother and accepting that I am queer. Realising that I am queer and embracing it is the best thing that ever happened in my life. Its a whole new state of being and I am extremely happy with being queer.

-Live Long & Prosper
