Comments on: "Reminiscing the Past Year" (11)

  1. Hey Sulz! I like this so much I’m going to steal it.

    Surely the Macau experience was very significant for you. It might have given you pain but you also changed a lot.

    I am curious about the red hoodie, sounds so cool, will you post a picture with it?

    sulz: i enjoyed reading yours! 🙂 yeah, that’s what i think too. do you think i’ve changed? i just feel a lot more… negative. 😦

    i think you saw the hoodie in my protected post, of me at kuala lumpur tower. but obviously it doesn’t show the entire hoodie so… the best part about it is behind, because it has this floral design that i love! usually hoodies are quite plain, but this is noticeably girly. 😀

  2. […] The old year Taken from Sulz […]

  3. Nicely done! Don’t know if I could do this one 🙂 though I guess it is a nice way to summarise the past year!

    sulz: thank you! you could if you put your mind to it. 😉 yeah, that’s why i swiped the meme!

  4. Firerocket said:

    You went to Disneyland in Hong Kong! I live like… right next to it.
    I don’t know why, but it makes me so happy whenever I hear about/see tourists in Hong Kong. You should’ve visited other places here too, especially Ocean Park.
    Disneyland sucks. -.-

    sulz: you live in lantau island? well, i enjoyed my disneyland experience, though now i know that ocean park has better rides there and there are animals! 🙂 i didn’t have that much money, as i was mostly in macau except the second last day of my time there.

    hehe, i get excited if i know people visited kuala lumpur too.

    35. Whom did you miss?
    Someone I haven’t even met before.

    That is a great response, I think that is true for all of us. 🙂

    sulz: hmm, i actually have a person in mind when i say that, i don’t know if it is the same for all! 🙂 but i suppose to some extent, when we long for something we don’t have it’s kind of like missing it! except you haven’t got it yet, lol.

  6. Your was interesting, may you have a great 2009 in terms of relationships and love. I can understand how this can so much to someone. But going overseas does mean something, so 2008 has been good on you in terms of travel and independence. 🙂

    sulz: thanks. 🙂 i still have a long way to go to be independent. i’m really not!

  7. Great meme! I think I’ll have to swipe it from you…

    Don’t regret acting impulsively, some of the best things I’ve done have been on impulse. If you think too hard about things sometimes you don’t manage to do anything.

    sulz: oh do! i think it’s a great meme for anybody. 🙂

    that’s true, i took my pre-u course on impulse and it led me to my college course, which i absolutely did not regret. oh well, win some, lose some huh?

  8. older…( natural) ……worried, lost , sadder( its just your inner state of mind on which you have full control and thus have the right to be happy and cheerful) ….hope you have a great year head and more visits overseas 😛
    disneyland….mmmmmm lucky you ( i also want to visit 😛 )
    and sleepinf is the best way to celebrate new year….( will get to sleep whole year ! 😆 )

    sulz: easier said than done for me! haha, good, i would like to get my daily 8 hours.

  9. Nicely done 🙂 You are always welcome to Disney here in Florida. I live just a few minutes away! 2008 was more of adventure for you, wishing you lots of love in 2009!

    sulz: a few minutes, wow… but it must be nothing extraordinary for you since it’s so near where you live! yeah, it was an emotional adventure all right. i wish that too… the good kind of love, that is. 🙂

  10. […] friends, learning, life, love, questions — Apar @ 2:47 pm Taking the cue from Sulz here; I took this up about almost a week after New year’s day. A balance sheet of sorts of the […]

  11. 2. Hope to see more of your work soon.
