Goodbye...

Year 2009... this year has been like a roller-coaster ride for me. Starting with the economic downturn at the end of 2008, the worse followed to 2009 particularly when Lehmann Brothers collapsed. The journey has not been really smooth for everyone of us I guess... but somehow I still make ends meet.

The highlight of 2009 (for me) was someone came into my life on 12th March 2009... someone who manage to brighten up my life, lighten up my burden and bring a broad smile to my face everytime I look at her. No matter how grumpy or pressured I got everytime I came back home from work, it took only a smile to bring back my mood :)

Yup! You guessed it... Sher Ryn! Actually I still can't imagine that I have entered another phase in my life which is fatherhood! Those days going out with friends for karaoke and clubbing sessions are effectively over. Being a father comes with a lot of responsibilities in which I will not dwell much into... you have to go through it in order to truly understand the joy. Not that I miss my bachelorhood, being a father has its perks too! It made me wanted to become a better husband and father by working harder to provide shelter and food on the table. Look at her when she was born...
You made your mom proud!

She has become such an angel... she might look cute but don't be deceived by her innocent smile. She shrieked whenever she wanted attention (to some extent very annoying), she had to get things that she wants by hook or by crook, she could hardly sit still that carrying her is a gigantic task (my wife and I get tired after holding her for less than 5 minutes), and the list goes on and on. Yet... she's our daughter and we know that it takes time to teach her all about the world. And we will make sure that we do a great job on that no matter how hard it may be. This picture was taken at our BU home on Christmas day itself... she's 9 months ++ now!


Anyway, I wish you all Happy New Year and hope that this coming 2010 will bring whatever that you are wishing for ok??? Each of us has different resolution so all the best to you! From Leo, Jenn and Sher Ryn (^_^)

So GOODBYE 2009 and HELLO 2010!!!
