Everybody have been asking me how well/bad my 2007 was. To sum it up….I loved and hated it equally. I don’t want to precisely mention all the high and low notes. Anyway, there are many memoirs of 2007 which I wouldn’t want to bring into the new year.
As 2007 comes to an end, I’m doing what I do every year. Taking an inventory of my failures and successes over that past year. I generally spend the majority of my time reflecting on my failures, thinking about how I didn’t quite measure up to my very high expectations, and making plans so it won’t happen again the next year.
2007 was a difficult year. I met the wrong Mr. Right (because I thought he was. Which ended up “NOT”); Fortunately, the right ‘Mr.Right’ is here with me. But instead of focusing on the negative, this year I’m choosing to focus on the positive.
In pondering my life the past week or so, I’ve realized what a terribly negative person I can be at times. I’m not sure why tearing down others and even myself seems so much easier than offering an encouragement or a smile. I’ve been way too sensitive to many. Maybe I feel like I need to level the playing field. Anyway, I’m trying to be more aware of my negativity and I’m allowing God to change my heart. Yeah, heart change is usually painful…very painful.
If I chose one word to characterize 2007, it would be “victory”. Yes, victory! I’ve met the best people in my life this year. And I’ve got 4 new nick names this year,: ‘Strawberry’, ‘ChipsMore’, ‘Trash’, ‘Babli’ & ‘Jaan’. [So, that’s 5 now. LOL.]
Each day presents its own battle, but I am fighting and I am making progress.
This year I have been able to reclaim parts of my personality and areas of my life overtaken by anxiety, despair, hopelessness, and depression. And I continue to learn.
And Benezir Bhutto has made a full stop with her blood to end 2007. What I wish for the world in 2008 is:, May terrorism have an ending.
It is a horrible thing that Benazir Bhutto had to die. I personally thought she was an opportunist, a person of extreme danger to fragile stability in Pakistan. However, even if I am correct, she did not deserve to be “shot like a dog”. I am sure another example of Islamist misogyny will be quietly accepted without protest. Islamists, who killed her, will not be blamed – Bush and Musharraf will be.
Benazir Bhutto did not return top Pakistan for Pakistan’s sake. She returned there for her own greed for power. Could she not see that Musharraf was the only reason that fragile Pakistan stayed afloat, whole, and not Islamist throughout War On Islamo-Fascism? Of course she did. She knew it well. She could not care less.
It seems very ironic to me, that she died from the very thing that Musharraf tried to protect her from (remember, when she was put on house arrest?) – Bloody assassins

I’m really disapointed when i know that all the western union has missleading concepts about arabs and muslims.
Why do all the western world has this bad image about Muslims? Even some of my non-Muslim friends in Singapore do. I agree that some muslims are terrorists but they are not representing the whole islamic world. There are many terrorists all over the world with different religions and different believes, but not all of them are muslims! A Muslim could wear the title as a “Muslim”, but I would like to make a statement clear. “NOT ALL MUSLIMS PRACTICE ISLAM”. A person with humanity would never do harm to a life!
I feel bad when I see all the images of terrorists showing an arab guy with covered head and his name of a islamic name! [How bad]
Terrorists are those who kill other people for nothing, for no reason,[for us] those who kill helpless children and women without any reason, without mercy. And I like to say something which I heard ” terrorism has no religion “!
Not all Muslims are terrorists. However, most terrorists are Muslims. [I’m saddened]
Just to make some things clear. I think you’ll should watch this video. It is said in the song that “Islam is praying to ONE GOD”! I’m pretty sure some of you guys would want to start a debate over that statement. However, I certainly agree with that statement. “Allah” in arabic means “GOD”! Being a Muslim, I believe that there’s only one God to protect us. We just see “GOD” in different perspectives. As long as one believes the existance of GOD, it’s more than enough. That’s what Islam is about. Islam is not about bombings or attacking fellow humans. People are just misusing the name of GOD for their SINS. HE shall teach them the right lesson.

Holidays are boring. I’ve nothing better to do, hence I’m digging my grave. I’m uber bored! Errrrr. I’m not working now. I’ve decided not to work for some time and finish up with my projects. Visual Basic project is almost done. Now it’s Personal Development & Internet Application & Development [IDA]. I’ve not even done my research for IDA yet. And I’ve to get back to school on the 31st. Seems like I’m really digging my grave ah. LOL.
I’ve been thinking about many things lately. From childhood memories to what my future is going to be like. I’m really excited about what my future has for me. Sometimes I wonder what if I am a beggar, a vagrant, or an emperor. I want to experience all kinds of life styles, a beggar’s life, a vagrant’s life, an emperor’s life. My life must be colorful and rich if I have such experience. But I know others will regard me as a madman [madwoman actually] if I learn to live a beggar’s life.

“Last time my heart was broken, I thought it was true. I swore I would never love again and I believe that this was true. But then you walked into my life and I knew you were worth loving, so I said to myself… FINE! one last time.”
I want to remember this quote. Thus, this is will be the best place to write it down, so as I flip back my blog in future, it’ll be always here!
