2012, so long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu

Clock is ticking and there's only a couple more hours left of 2012. Goodbye 2012, Farewell, auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye.

2012, a year full of ups and downs, that's for sure. Too bad I've got chores to finish just before the year ends (an old saying).

Cheers to the New Year Ahead!

(Merry Christmas belated)
Happy New Year Everyone,


  1. Dearest Maverick!
    It has been a while, I have been far too distant.
    I apologize!
    I hope you have a wonderful New Years!
    Let's continue to get along in the New Year as well. :) I am looking forward to see what sort of new adventures you will have! I'm sure I will be a little more spontaneous/adventurous during this new year.
    What do you mean by that saying?
    Does it mean you will be busy until the year end?
    Don't be too busy! You should go out and celebrate, if you able to.
    New Years Eve is just one big party, in the United States.
    Do you have any New Years traditions that you celebrate? What do people in Singapore do to celebrate the New Year? I am so curious to know.
    Once again, have a wonderful New Years. I will try to keep in touch more. :)

    1. Hi Rina!! been awhile!
      I haven't been too active lately too. Just came back from Manila a couple of days ago and man, how I wish I don't have a National Service to attend to haha.
      Oh that old saying means that all the stuffs that has to be done, has to be done before the year ends, if not, it'll follow you for the rest of the following year lol, or so that's what I think it meant. I managed to finish them though. I even showered one last time just before the clock striked 12. So I'll welcome the new year feeling refreshed and nice smelling haha wuuttt. Just for the good vibes sake.
      Nothing special here in Singapore, handful of countdown parties here and there, main one's at the Marina Bay Floating Platform, with the media and fireworks and all. Didn't bother to go, too crowded! Went once and swore I'll never go again :P
      Guess it's much more fun if I stayed in Manila. There, it is alright to buy tonnes (bit exaggerated) of fireworks and then set them off at midnight while kids blow their trumpet hats and noisemakers (the noisier it is, the better. An old tradition says it drives away evil spirits and brings good fortune). It'll seem like battlefield outside the house!
      How did you spent your New Year's Eve? Hope you had a blast!
      We shall keep in touch more haha
      Cheers to a great year ahead Rina!
      Happy New Year,
