Good Bye 2008

Today is the last day in the year 2008. So far I feel that this year past in speed, may be is because too many things happen around and making the days past like you are not aware of it.

To me, 2008 is not a good year. But I should say life is not always smooth sailing. There are always ups and downs, good and bad. We still need to thank God for that, up to today we are blessed with health and everyone around is complete. When we are in trouble God is always there to strengthen us and at the same time we learn to have faith in God.

These are some "happening" things around in my year 2008:

Trip to Hong Kong and Macau (January)
We have spend great time travelling around HK, visit Hong Kong Disneyland and Macau. Although is just 3 days completely there, but glad we visit almost all tourist spots.

Terry's got Bronchiolitis (March-April)
It was developed after a 2 weeks cough. He went through nebuliser and taking lots of cough, phlegm, flu and medicine for asthma. We went in and out hospital and clinic for many times.

Terry's got Hot water burn (June-July)
This was the real worst thing happen in our life. His small body being hurt badly by 350ml hot water. Burn hurt covering 20% of his body in 1st and 2nd degreee burn condition. He went through skin graft operation, in out OT for 7 times and stay in 2 different hospitals. It is the most hard days to past in my life and up to now I still not get over the incident yet. Now he is on recovery with the help of Teviron products and start showing recovery sign on the deep scar.

Learn to Bake (August)
It was fun to bake cakes. But I still finding times to do and learn more. So far bake 1 cake before only (pai-seh)

Own first designer piece (November)
Yay! my dream comes true. I finally bought the Coach handbag end of November. It was a Coach Signature Hobo. This is my only handbag now and I love it to bits.

Blogging journey
Overall for paid post review and paid ad performance, this year just so-so, still better than nothing. There is nothing more happy that I know many great blogger friends out there this year, especially after Terry accident. Thanks for coming into my life and I truly feel your care and love. My daily task of online become more and more busy with so many blogs I'm want to read. Sorry for those I not drop by frequent. I still remember you. For those friends are here with me, thank you for your time and all your lovely comments.

Happening around the country and the world are,

12th Malaysia General Election (March)
I know I have not being a good citizen to register as a voter, but I'm happy with the result and looking forward for the new government to make a change to the country.

Sichuan Earth Quake (May)
The 7.9 magnitud earth quake almost destroyed the people and province. Collapse found everywhere, millions of dead and lost. Sad news to read for the entire month.

Petrol Price Hike (June)
It was like no body business the fuel price increased over night. I'm so sad government not doing a good job in controling the fuel price. Although motorists get the petrol rebate, but what can that little amount help with all foods and groceries thing's price keep increasing. It was something unexpected too that the fuel price drops, at least for now we should be happy.

Beijing Oylmpic Games 2008 (August)
The Opening and Closing ceremony was simply amazing and breakthrough across all sports game ceremony. An eye opening sports event to the world.

Melamine Milk Scandal (September)
The irresponsible manaufacturing in China making the kids in the world turn up side down. Many babies and kids suffer from kidney damage and in following of that other foods like biscuit, cereal, snacks are also found contain of the Melamine.

With that, this should be my last post for this year. I hope all the worst will become better, especially many expected the 2009 economy is going down and bad. Life is hard, but we still got to live over it. Wish everyone All the Best in 2009.
