As the year approaches to an end, it is the time of the year where once again, we are inevitably drawn to reflect on the events of previous year and make a mental list of the resolutions for the upcoming year.
However, have we ever taken the time to remember if we achieved our previous goals? Do we remember, exactly a year ago, we were busy drafting up new resolutions: things we would want to change about ourselves and habits we would want to grow out of? If you do, and successfully achieve them, congratulate yourself. Treat yourself to something nice before the year ends. If you have yet to realise those dreams, don’t fret, as there is always a few items on that list that somehow make its way to the new list. Continue reading →
Some pictures before 2011 ends! 😀 In no particular order though.
Most recent, Caroline’s 21st birthday. We celebrated it at Pearl City, Chinatown.
It took me more than six months to korek the actual camera model that she wanted. And thanks to everyone who chipped in to buy this lovely present. Happy 21st Birthday Caroline !! The green card read “Warmest wishes from: …. (everyone who chipped in)” 😀
Before this dinner, Caroline and I met up with my primary schoolmate (also our secondary schoolmate), Rebecca! It’s also a perfect excuse to distract her while everyone prepared for the dinner that night. Say hello to Rebecca, my friend for more than 13 years!
The next picture of me is hideous, but I find it hilarious, so here’s for laughing at myself ):
Had some photoshoot in Jessop when my brother bought his camera.
There’s still quite a few in my computer but that’s all I’m posting on my blog 😛
Bro and I went to watch a football match between Chelsea and Fulham on boxing day in London
University life, and probably the three group pictures in my entire with more than malaysians.Just saying.
Suhaib’s prebirthday party.
The End. Yes, it’s an abrupt ending, LOL. It’s too troublesome to post all the pictures up, so hope you enjoyed the few that you have just seen (:
The second day of Paris was fruitful and more enjoyable. We met up with Anastasia and her two younger sisters. It is pleasant to have familiar faces in a foreign place. And the five of us embarked on a tour around Paris. Dining in Paris was fun. The most memorable was when we tried escargots, a dish of snails, which tasted a lot like chicken. (:
Anyone who goes to Paris would definitely visit the Paris tower, and we did too. However, the weather was not as sunny as grey clouds blanketed the city throughout the day. We pre-bought the tickets to go to the summit of Paris tower, otherwise we had to queue for hours to buy the tickets on the spot.
Paris tower was crowded, and we had to wait for hours before we could reach the top. Like anything else worth waiting for, and we did, we finally reached the top the view was breathtaking, even if we couldn’t see much of it.
We also went to the Lourve Museum, but the queue to enter the museum was at least six hours long, so we decided against it. It is amazing how patient people would wait under the drizzling rain just for a glimpse of the Mona Lisa portrait. My brother was so excited about visiting one of the shooting sites of Da Vinci Code – a movie i have yet to watch.
To be honest, I was more fascinated by the fountain surrounding the pyramid structured building.
Since we couldn’t get in, we walked round Paris to see other landmarks we identified during the bus tour.
The roads in Paris were pretty crazy. Some roads are at least 10 lanes wide, with no particular lines in between. The drivers in Paris can be classified as either dangerous or skillful, depending on how optimistic you are. And I thought the drivers in London are crazy enough.
Paris is beautiful, but all good things must come to and end, as we left Paris after four days.
