Well, the end of the year is upon us again and I just have one New Year’s resolution:
Don’t buy durians at the same time you get your laundry and leave them in the car!
I did that while grocery shopping just now and after a (not insignificant) pause, I decided to go for a quick one, grabbing items off the shelves.
Yup, my newly laundered clothes were saturated with the smell of the King of Fruits.
Seriously though, I really have just one New Year’s resolution:
I’m going to give my life to God and let Him lead me
I’ve decided that I’m not going to sweat the small stuff and see where He wants me to go in 2013. I’m sure there’s a bigger plan for me and I will totally submit myself to it. I also have a few issues that I need His help in resolving but the main thing is to listen to that guiding voice and be nice to people (even if they’re not nice to me, but that’s the point innit? ).
Happy New Year’s Eve everyone and drive safe tonight! :)
Well, this is one holiday which almost everyone celebrates. A start of a brand, spanking new year. The time to make resolutions you’ll break the very next day and all that jazz.
You know, I haven’t had much luck with New Year’s Eve lately. I was on a plane during NYE 2011. Seriously. I was 35,000 feet in the air en route to London. This was the second New Year’s Eve I’ve spent on a plane with dozing fellow passengers as company.
I don’t know about you but that’s not my exactly my idea of an awesome New Year’s Eve.
Anyway, I was at ENCORP Strand a couple of weeks ago for the launch of Tapis Rouge – the new home of the Kit Kat Klub. I was rather impressed with the area – the Red Carpet Avenue seems set to be the latest place to party with the array of prestigious bars, restaurants and entertainment in the area.
Trivia: The Red Carpet is based upon the Golden Ratio divine proportion (look it up, it’s very interesting stuff and can be found all around us in nature) and the inspiration comes from Champ Elysees in Paris.
*cue my favorite band NOFX
Anyway, I’ve been back to Red Carpet Avenue a couple of times since then. I once brought a friend to watch the theater show at Tapis Rouge.
It was pretty good, comes highly recommended to me. I was in love with the production when I first saw it at the launch with Tiara Jacquelina and the old Kit Kat Klub crew.
ENCORP Strand is going to hold an awesome New Year’s Eve countdown at Red Carpet Avenue this year. Instead of getting your car sprayed with foam at Bukit Bintang or getting squashed in Padang Merdeka, I reckon this one would be one of the great NYE parties around.
You remember that episode in the first season of How I Met Your Mother where they had a limo and was rushing to 5 parties to see which one is the best and head there for the countdown?
Well, this one is going to be hard to beat. MYSTICAL EVE 2012 presents:
ENCORP Strand building moving, transforming and coming to live in 3D to the beats of music, lighting effects and fireworks – for the first time in Malaysia
Laser lights hand-manipulated – bent, stretched and spun before your very eyes by Laser Man
Aerialists twirling through space to synchronized music
A contortionist pushing the limits of human flexibility
Mizz Nina, Pop Shuvit, Joe Flizzow and other local celebrities performing
Aurology, Davern & Jee Hoe, DJ Xu spinning the decks and pumping up the music
MYSTICAL EVE 2012 has the theme “Tonight, Extraordinary Works Overtime” and with the lineup of entertainment that they have, I have no doubt that they can deliver. It starts from 6 pm – 2 pm on 31st December 2011 at Red Carpet Avenue, ENCORP Strand. Find out more at the Red Carpet Avenue Facebook page.
Be there and don’t forget Barney’s “Get Psyched” mix during your ride! :)
It’s less than one hour before the end of 2003. This year has been
interesting, for the lack of a better adjective. I was still in
university at the beginning of the year. It’s the end of the year now
and I’m in the workforce and I haven’t been fired…yet. ;) It’s the
year of transition – from studying to working and I’m still learning
the intricacies of this different life.
I’m sitting at home right now – it’s the second year in a row that
I’m not out for NYE celebrations. This time is because my gf didn’t
feel like going out, plus I’m tired from work so we’re just chilling
out at home. I think we’re in the minority though, as the photo above
shows – that was taken at around 9 pm at the KLCC LRT station. The
incoming (into KL city) human traffic is much voluminous than the
trickle of outgoing traffic.
It’s been a good year for sixthseal.com too. Thank you for all your support in 2003. I’ll see you again in 2004. :)
I’m blogging from one of the net access centers at the C terminal at
KLIA which costs RM 1 per minute. Yes, I’m going back to Melbourne
already. :( Unfortunately, I get to spend my New Years Eve on a plane.
Anyway, I’m pretty bummed about all of this coz I had hoped for a 3 or
4 month holiday in Sibu. I knew it wasn’t possible though coz I still
have to do my Industrial Experience and I’m taking a summer course in 6
days. Oh well, too bad, coz I had wanted to spend more time in Sibu.
Now I can’t even spend Chinese New Year in Sibu! I had heaps of fun
during my one month break though. Anyway, I didn’t get to blog
yesterday because my hard disk decided to die on me so I couldn’t use
my computer at all. Have a happy new year everyone…
