If you ask me what I did for this year, I'd proudly say, I lived and let live.
January was eye opening for me as I was almost scammed, and took part in a drama of Emily of Emerald Hills in college.
I met Relax on February and I am glad I did know him. Not a big time blogger, but rather a very insightful blogger. My webcam broke down which I never replace till today. Among the very last photo I had with my webcam is the one below.
March was a month full of entertainment for me as I stumbled upon funny dubbed versions of various cartoons and MadTV. Memoirs of a Geisha took a turn and so did Gilmore Girls. I also had my first SEO experience when I posted the lyrics of Ipoh Mali by Point Blanc. The SEO lasted a few months before some renowned lyrics site took over. Damn!
Point Blanc's album. Mind you, I bought the original CD. Yeah!
April was where my obsession with Magic deepened when I made myself into a card. Attended a leadership camp by TARC which was a lil' pointless, did a write up on how I lost 40kgs in 6 months and also started going heavy on writing paid post.
May was the month my site obtained PR3. Yeah! More paid post. Bung Mokhtar gave the biggest sexist remark in Malaysia and I celebrated my birthday in Penang with bloggers!
June is big. Seriously, lots of things happen. For instance, I was hospitalized for dengue. Then, my PC broke down, how wonderful. Next, I decided to go for the audition of StarCeleb, my first ever reality TV show participation. And eventually, I took my first studio photos too.
July was good news. I had a positive outcome for my audition, which means I was gonna be on National TV. The first stage was set at The Curve and next One Utama. Lots of merchants were involved to give various shopping benefits to consumers. It's not bad at all, seriously. For the first time in my life, I was pampered with free hairstyling and make-ups. Can't say I didn't enjoy it.
August was all plain waiting as the reality show made us wait for almost 1 month to know the result of the Top60 to Top24. More pictures of the roadshows however were posted here and here. I also found Boobs Bath.
September is the month I hit National TV. The contestants of StarCeleb were even forced to club for free at BED. After that, we were all peeing out pants wet waiting for the result of who were advancing to the next stage. The nation was also at grief for the brutal rape and murder case of Nurin Jazimin.

The Top24 of StarCeleb was announced in October and I was in the list. Courtesy of the winner of StarCeleb, Minli uploading the video she recorded herself, I was able to bring a few episodes to my blog for my readers to read. Being in the Top24 literally meant more tasks and assignments, but we still look good while doing it. It was also the start of my last semester in my current studies. I also experience Chilis for the first time.
November was really hectic. A lot happened. I was eliminated from StarCeleb but I was still featured in a magazine. BERSIH and HINDRAF came to light to protest. Had a new addition to the house, a Baby! Worked for the first time in my life in a warehouse sale. Started uploading comics to increase blog traffic and expressed my dissatisfaction over StarCeleb's production team.
I changed my blog's layout in December. I was also involved in producing an underwater-themed magazine for assignment. Started going serious in Magic Online where I specialized in Lorwyn Block Constructed Format. Decided to do some SEO for the upcoming expansion of Magic The Gathering, Morningtide and so far so good. Been relaxing to rest up after tonnes of assignments in the past.
One of the sections in my magazine harped about Puffer Fish.
I am proud of what I did last year. What about you?
