After the dinner last night, Pappy and I went home and waited for the countdown. There were fireworks everywhere. On the television. Outside my kitchen window, that of One Utama and The Curve. And out of nowhere, outside the balcony. The fireworks weren’t totally visible to me. I could only see the ones that fire up high in the sky.
The bar outside had a countdown party and it played music till the wee hours of the morning. 2 something in the morning and they were still partying. It took me some time to fall asleep due to the loud music.
Woke up to find my left thigh more swollen than ever due to an insect bite. I don’t know what bit me. It started off itchy and so I thought it was just a minor mosquito bite..but when I came back from dinner last night, it started to swell and it’s very red. Apply some ointment but it’s not helping. I think it got worse.
The diameter of the swollen area is that of an egg yolk. Actually it looks like there’s a fried egg on my left thigh. Surrounding the swollen area is painful too and it’s pinkish. So that makes the whole swollen area the size of my palm.
Pappy flew back today and I miss him. I’m happy that he came. I don’t know where else I could find a dad like him.
Anyway, I’ve wanted to write some flashback of the year 2007 as mentioned and what I want to do in 2008, that hopefully appear in my next entry. Till then, good night and have a very good day at work tomorrow.

Happy New Year to you Hui Sen! 🙂
Happy New Year, Neo. There’s always next new year’s eve and Merdeka day! The problem with recording is that you will be busy with your camera or camcorder and not totally enjoying watching the fireworks display.
Happy New Year, Grace~
Wow, seems like we did the same thing during the countdown, simply staying at home & enjoying the fireworks 🙂 I saw Sunway Pyramid & Amcorp Mall’s fireworks from my house backyard…
Thinking bout the terrible traffic jam & insane amount of people everywhere made me lazy to go anywhere for countdown.

Happy New Year silent_one!
I just didn’t have enough energy stored to countdown out there, after a tiring day at work and battling the new year’s eve traffic jam after work.
