Thank you to everyone who remembered. :) It was indeed a happy and wonderful birthday.
And to all the guys who came to my birthday celebration which lasted til 5:30am the next day, thank you. :) I never thought I could still stay up that late. :P I'll post the photos here soon! In the meantime, you can browse them at facebook.

This year started with quite a few emotional episodes in my life. I exhausted all I could to save something which I thought was precious. Turned out, it was only precious to ME. That thing I wanted to share, I had all to myself. But there was no use keeping it for myself. As with anything that destroys me, I let it go.
In so many instances, I had difficulties at work, but then I learned to endure. And I got a raise.
I got my heart broken, only to be whole again. Perhaps even more cohesive this time. (Thanks to someone who is taking good care of it. *winks*)
I met new people and found out those who are really showing their true colors.
Both funny and lovely moments made me see that it's not only mothers who know best, your best friends do too. :)
I was convinced, prematurely as it turned out, that some people hurt you out of selfishness.
I will say it again, it really is a dog-eat-dog world. And I probably experience this every single day.
I realized in so many ways who truly deserves my heart. Furthermore, I learned that in this world, a few men are worth catching, and fewer still are worth keeping.
I read from a book that everything is fragmentary. It's up to us to supply the missing link. It's true.
Anything good and important is hard. Like relationships. And sometimes, even my sanity. :P Being away from my family only made me closer to them. In terms of long distance relationships, I am now a believer. :) It CAN and WILL work if both parties really want it.
This year I made decisions, decisions, decisions. Some of which I had to ponder on for hours, some for days, some dragged for a few months. Some are even still bound to change.
It took Singapore for me to realize and do some of the things I really want out of life. And now I know how, where and when I want to do them.
I had a handful of problems this year, but I always made it a point to remind myself that my blessings are always more than my so-called problems.
I'm excited to experience the rest of my 2009, and even more excited what's in store for 2010.
As the song goes, "What comes is better than what came before." :)
