Of Tony Romas, new year celebration and a pair of timberland.

New year's eve come and go like a blip of blinking eyes. The next thing you notice, you will be celebrating another new year's eve again when it came up knocking...
Life indeed is one full circle in every single year! ;)

Interestingly, this year celebrations isn't much hype in term of people going out to celebrate and rejunevate. Apart from some rowdy, munchy spin-off  sexy romp in today's headlines, nothing much really to look forward to - OMG Gosh! how lame and boring chap i had become..

From my very observant view, People prefers a low-key celebration with family and friend rather than go out for new year's party b'coz in the past few years the world had faced a lot of agony during year-end celebrations. Taking back to the year of Bali Bombings and further to date to the worst Tsunami hits in 2004 and not to forget recent (2008) Delhi and Gaza Massacre have made us wonder, 

Is there anymore hope for peace and justice? Was it a 'false'  hope in the first place or do we need 'new' courage and bravery in order to survive?

On another note, moslem of the world also realise that hijri new year (1430H) happened to be  2 days earlier than the julian calendar celebrations and moslems are left to choose what is more important between the 2 to their life... or perhaps it also represent what is more important to their moslem brothers elsewhere.
Which definitely  and strongly more important than just having fun!

There are many things to look forward in 2009.

1. Barrack Obama inauguration as the 44th US President. we know Obama as a person but can we rely on him as an organisations?

2. World Credit Crunch taking effect

3. Another Coup d'état in Thailand.

4. Election all over the world - India, Indonesia, EU

On local scene

1. How will BN fair in the upcoming battle of goliath between PAS and UMNO in KT by election.

2. Paklah handing over the power to Najib - or would it be just handing over UMNO presidency?

3. UMNO General Assembly.
