Hello 2011!

I danced and drank my way into year 2011 by celebrating with friends and family. It was crowded here at Kota Kinabalu Water Front where people from around Borneo gathered to watch the world prepare to greet 2011. The sound of whistles and the party poppers starts filling the air just half an hour before midnight as it gets louder every minute. I drowned my thirst with a bottle of Heineken as I waited for the party to begin.

And then the countdown begins. Ten… nine… eight… seven….. Goodbye 2010, Hello 2011!! Bright little objects propelled into the sky and ended with a loud bang. It lit and sparkled beautifully in the dark sky with green, red and gold which lasted about 15 minutes. When the fireworks ended, the music from the pubs and clubs nearby can be heard even clearer.

Finally a brand New Year has begun and I knew I had plenty to be grateful for last year. For one I’ve graduated with a Degree and became a CISCO certified person. Now I will begin year 2011 with a new job and hopefully everything will go well. I will try to stick with my regular exercise and to live healthily even after climbing up Mount Kinabalu by the end of January. Here’s to a fabulous 2011! Cheers…

A 33 year old geek who was brought up in Kota-Kinabalu, Sabah. I graduated with a Degree in Computer Science majoring in Systems and Networking from Universiti Tenaga Nasional, Selangor. I am a CISCO Certified person with CCNA qualification where I am able to install, configure and maintain Cisco and network devices. With my programming skills, I also develop systems and websites for small companies as a freelancer. Things that interest me are computers and its technologies which had been a thing for me for many years now. I am also an open-source enthusiast. I have worked on an open-source project for my FYP that involves Ubuntu, GTK, and Python. I’ve made it through my Degree and I hope that one day I will be able to contribute in some way to the open source community. Other than that, I am a big fan of TV series and movies. I also like reading especially interesting tech blogs on the web.
