Comparing past and present

Photograph was taken @ Bagan Lalang, Sepang

I must make sure I'm doing this at least once a week. Let's do it!

Yesterday, I went to Bagan Lalang with some of my friends for a one day trip and guess what, I'm all burnt up and feeling the pain on every inch of my body. From my face to my neck, my shoulder and to the arm, shouldn't have act hero to just wear a sleeveless shirt. I thought Malaysia is the same as Adelaide, now I know I thought wrong.

The last time I went out and expose myself under the sun was a year ago when I was still in Adelaide. That day was my 22 birthday and decided to celebrate alone by taking photographs of the city. It was really fun and memorable and I didn't get any sunburn!!

Time flies. And I'm still missing those days.

Happy Chinese New Year - The year of Water Dragon!

Photographs taken at the Mausoleum of the former King Tu Duc @ Hoi An, Vietnam

Today, is the first day of Chinese New Year. And this, is my first blog entry for the year 2012. Initially, I was thinking to start blogging sometime around early January, then it got delayed and was thinking to blog on my birthday, which happens to be a Wednesday hence it got delayed again. Since today is also consider a new year (to the Chinese), I would like to take this opportunity to start my first post and hopefully will continue doing so consistently.

A quick update of what happened during the past 22 days of 2012:

21 December 2011 - 1 January 2012
I ended my 2011 by stuffing food into my stomach non-stop until past midnight. Was at KL for a dim sum session with the Fab5 then countdown with TheCubes at Snowy's place.

4 - 8 January 2012
Went for a short trip to Da Nang, Vietnam with the family and their friends. Was with all the aunties and uncles for a few good days. This is also my first time in Vietnam and I've decided to visit there again if there's an opportunity!

16 January 2012
First day of work at Taylor's University, located at the lakeside campus. Switching from an Account Executive to Marketing Executive is definitely challenging, different things overall and need to pick up everything real quick. Learn Jason, learn!

18 January 2012
My birthday. Initially planned to have an "underground" day, try to get as "low profile" as possible, even hid my birthday notification on Facebook and decided to sleep early on the night before. But heck! The Fab5 dropped by at 12am, giving me a surprise and shock of my life with a cake.
The company dinner falls on the same day too, but being as discreet as a mole rat underground, no one realize about this. Which is not really an issue to me, as I have TheCubes who met up and celebrated with me again after that.
Really happy though it's a small scale celebration, and am grateful to all the messages sent over to me even after my birthday when they find out about it. Thank you guys once again!

So it's today! The first day of Chinese New Year. Gong Xi Fa Cai I'm wishing to all my fellow readers (I wonder how many readers I have left?), friends and family! May the year of Water Dragon brings you luck, prosperous and fortune! As considered part of the Earth Dragon member, I wish all the best to the people around me, and hopefully I'll have a better ahead too. See you guys during the next entry then!
