It’s the end of the year again. Like any other year, I always do a summary of what I did throughout the year. If you’re interested in reading what I did in the previous years, I’ve actually collected the links to them. Here are the entries I made in 2004, 2005 and 2006. Just a blink of an eye, and now I am in the blogosphere for around 4 years (including the lost archives before I migrate to WordPress mid-2004).
Let’s see. I kick start my year 2007 with nothing special. Seriously, year 2007 isn’t as happening as my years in secondary school. It’s all about going to class, meet the great lecturer, do a little revision, and go back home. Sometimes a little lim teh with friends, but that was just about it.
February was a great month, because there’s Chinese New Year. However, while everyone is happy celebrating it, I was in front of my computer, waiting for my December 2006 exam sitting result. I passed, and I was very happy This is also a romantic month for those couple celebrating Valentine’s Day, but it’s a SAD (Single’s Awareness Day) day for me I am single and available at the moment, and enjoying my bachelor life .
March was a bad month indeed. For a computer geek like to have no access of computer for a month is absolutely killing. I smoked my CRT monitor and my parents didn’t bother to fix it. I only got my new monitor after around a month during a PC Fair. Nothing much happens in April, other than my first TLA cheque and also the news where Miri will have free WiFi across the city for free for one whole year. But the free WiFi was quite disappointing. Frequent disconnection and slow speed. Perhaps the area I was in have lousy signal
I moved from a free hosting to a paid local hosting in May. It was good for the first few months, but now it’s getting slowed down and sucked up because the server is getting over crowded. If they don’t plan to get a new server next year, I am not renewing my hosting plan next year. I’m moving out. Well, I guess shit happens, and perhaps I should take out the post that praise them on their service. Their tech support are still bunch of nice people, but their service are getting lousier.
Oh, I also happen to know a girl from college and she happens to be a distributor in an MLM company. I got annoyed by her calls and I eventually confronted her that I would stop answering her calls if all she talks about is MLM and buying her products. She changed, and now we do hang out once in a while, which is a good thing .
And of course in June, I celebrated my 19th birthday. I also sat for my exams, and I remembered how tough it is to study in the eleventh hour. Well, I guess it was all worth it because I passed the exams and now I am to proceed to the next level in ACCA Qualification. Wish me luck as I will be doing the Skills Module starting next year .
I was pretty inactive the few months after I finished my exams. I was busy looking for jobs and I guess that’s how I stumble upon a funny ads on the newspaper. Putting that aside, I manage to get myself into a job interview which I failed deliberately. Their offer was bad and their staff smokes in an air-conditioned office. Other than looking for jobs, I have a friend who kept on dragging me to go out for movies. But I hate it because the cinema in Miri sucks.
Few months later, I manage to get myself a job in a local accounting firm. Working life is fun, with all the colleagues and all but when you’re with an accountant boss, you’ll know what is it like to be there. Oh, I also manage to get myself a new phone, thanks to the online income I got I also managed to get a web design project, but it turns out to be a scam.
December was quite a happening month. I went to the Miri Bug Fest where I get to see the classic Volkswagen Beetle. It was a lovely event. I also went to probably one of the biggest bloggers gathering in Miri, thanks to Uchu Keling for organizing it and Advertlets for the sponsorship. I didn’t blog about the event because I didn’t take any pictures. If you’re looking for posts on the event, go over to Uchu Keling write up on the event. He’s linking everyone who blogs about the event.

My Year 2008 Plans
Living without plans and goals is pretty pointless to me. Like any other years, I usually have my sets of goals and work my way up to achieve them, only this year, I decided to blog all about it
Goal 1: Earn more money, and invest them.
This year, a large percentage of my online income goes into my new handphone. This year, I plan to make more money online, and invest them in mutual funds. I earned around RM1,500 this year, and I am hoping to double the figure next year, and invest them. I know, the amount is little compare to all the big shots. Well, I guess its worth a try I never intend to blog full time. It’s just my side income.
Goal 2: Get at least a Web Design project.
It’s time for me to build up my portfolio. The scam case never fails to stop me from trying and hoping for another project to come. No harm being optimist on this, right?
Goal 3: Launch MiriBloggers.com
This project is not dead yet. Not just yet. I plan to launch by Chinese New Year. I guess I still have one month plus to work on it.
Goal 4: Finish at least 3 papers in Skills Module
Finish 3 papers in 2008, and finish another 3 papers in 2009. Well, I am hoping I didn’t fail any of the papers. I want to work my way up and get the ACCA qualification as fast as possible, while working at the same time.
Goal 5: To stop putting on weight
I have to start exercising. I am getting fatter each year, which is not a good sign.
I guess this is all for this year. See you next year?
