Any great achievements for me? NO. Any extraordinary happenings? NO. Any exciting changes in my lifestyle? Definitely NO. Everything came and went like the previous years. Am I happy? YES. To some, it can be quite strange how a person can be happy and content when not much has happened to him or her. Yeah but that's me. I'm comfortably cocooned in my life at the moment that I don't think I want anything changed (unless it's for the better). At least, not yet. I'm sure that something is bound to happen sooner and later and I'll be shocked out of my pants when that happens. Till then, I'm going to enjoy the routine that I've created for the past couple of years and if there are going to be any changes, I hope they will be gradual. Some of my friends have commented on my laid-back attitude and I can only agree with them. After all, what is there to argue when everything that they say is true? Still, it doesn't mean that I don't work hard or put in any effort at all. I do but I don't think I'll be increasing the quota for my effort any time soon. Even then, I would say that what I've done is definitely much more than that done by some of my colleagues and friends. So how about that?

p/s Nothing much happened to me in 2010 and this entry is the same one that I wrote a year earlier. In other words, it's recycled and I might do the same thing again at the end of this year!

I celebrated my birthday a few days ago and to tell the truth, there was nothing special on that day. It was just like any other day. I was too tired to think of any way to celebrate (and too old for that actually). I had my breakfast with my mum and did my house chores after that (didn't I just mop the whole house a few days ago?). I checked my facebook and replied the birthday wishes that I received (thank you y'all!). In the afternoon, I had a light lunch with a friend and after that, we went to the bank to finalise his house purchase (I sat there in a daze waiting for the next customer to be called as the bank officer went through all the details with him). Then both of us went to the hardware stores to look at paint samples and catalogues (This got me a bit excited since I love seeing colours). We also went to see a guy to get quotations since he wanted to do a little bit of renovation for his living room (I had to keep my mouth shut since the renovation was for his house and he could be quite stubborn with the way he wanted things done.) After that, it was off to the supermarket to get a few things on my grocery list (the same veggies and the same canned processed food as always). It was drizzling by the time I finished and we headed back to my house. I went to bed quite late and that was that. I remember someone said "A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun. Enjoy the trip."

p/s So much for adding another number to my age, huh?
