Goodbye 2009, Hello 2010

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I had a lovely time (despite the fact I was still feeling sick. Stupid flu -_-'') and the food was very tasty. As usual fun times always pass by so quickly! Ah well, a button to freeze time hasn't been invented yet (I need to work on my inventions!). So let's all proceed with the countdown towards the New Year!
Goodbye 2009
Yes. I tried to draw some quick fireworks there.
Please don't laugh...too loud...

Hello 2010!!

Have to say, 2009, was filled with lots of things. Opportunities, chances, new friends and catching up with old friends. Yes. I had moments where I thought 'What the !@#$ is happening now', but in the end it all turned out okay (in some cases...sort of okay hehe).

A big THANK YOU to everyone for sticking around. Reading or skimming through my rambling, leaving comments, shouts and sending emails. I really appreciate every single one!! I can assure you more of this will come in 2010. Should I warn you? I would, but even I don't know what the next ramble will be and I think the element of surprise has to be kept in my future posts...that is if you guys were surprised...

So for now I wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR! May it be filled with adventure, happiness, music, good health, love, goodies, luck and well all those things! If things didn't turn out all too well in 2009; just try to learn from your mistakes, start afresh and with new positivity! At least that's what I will try to do the next year ^_^!

Have an awesome time everyone, be careful with fireworks and cya all in 2010!
