Welcoming the New Year....

Monday, January 4, 2010
I was in the neigbouring country, Kota Kinabalu on the new year's eve. We arrived around 10pm and by the time we checked into the hotel, I was drop dead tired - working in the morning, took a boat ride to Temburong and straight road trip all the way to KK, Sabah.

I was in deep slumber when the date changed to 1st January 2010 but I could hear all the fireworks and the celebrations going on..
1st January 2010, I shop like I used to shop (haha!) and by the end of the day, I told my dad I had enough - basically m running out of cash and had to restrain myself from using my cards - and suggested we go home a day early. So we went home Saturday.

Arrived home around 4pm after stopping by Temburong for a while.
Saturday night, my brothers dragged my exhausted body to watch Old Dogs. It was not supposed to air yet but we managed to watc
h the sneak preview.


That's all I can say about this movie. Robin Williams of course is made to act for funny funny movies but John Travolta, I have to say, lovin' his performances.

It's a story of two bestfriends - Don (Williams) and Charlie (Travolta). They had been thru so many years together. Everytime Don had problems - which is always - Charlie is always there. Until 1 day, Don met up with his ex-wife and his twin children he never knew exist.

It's a comedy starting
that point onwards with Don trying to become a real father to both of his kids. It was a must-see movie for the year 2010. Let's just say that it's a great movie to open the 2010.

I also managed to watch Alvin and the Chipmunks 2 before the new year and it was not as good as the first movie but the Chipettes are super-cute ^_^ Managed to get few laughs out of me.

After 3 days holiday, people are back to work and school reopens today. And welcome to the normal hectic-ness (is there such word?). My brother, who just recently got his driving liscence now drive himself to school so for once, in the last 3 years, I no need to send him to school. But still I was caught in the traffic jam - on the way to work and on my way home from work.

My paperworks are piling up, mainly because I need to do my drug usages for the whole year 2009 and I managed to finish 95% of it tonight...hopefully I can submit it by Thursday - that's the dateline anyway.

Oh well....nothing changes for me for this year. What I can see ahead is work, work and more work!
