2000 and 7 Memories!



A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MY DEAREST FRIENDS HERE!



Hey guys...how's it going? I'm still on my holidays...will be back for regular blogging on the 7th of Jan. Until then, I'm sharing with you some of my Christmas pics from family dinners, lunches, Xmas lights and some cosy moments with my cousins and their kiddies. I hope you all had a great Christmas break and a wonderful New Year's eve. Thank you so very much for dropping by when I wasn't around and leaving heartfelt messages for me. MWAH I love and miss you all! Can't wait to get back to Blogville. I have also been going on little trips, some long drives and to beaches and BBQs. Some scenic pics will follow later on. For now, enjoy these Christmas pics (click on pic to read captions). Man I'm food-drunk and have put on weight! :( I intend to get back to my regular exercises and walking asap...til then I'll roam around like a wobbly lil product of rich festive food, jeez!

Now, as we usher a brandnew year in, we must remember the challenges we faced in 2007, all the memories made and the lessons learnt. My most memorable lesson from the year 2007 took place when a few harsh words from a loved-one that hurt me alot (for days), somehow made me the strongest that I have ever been. Not cos I've become numb, but because I have become free...free from depending on what others say/think who I am. What only matters to me right now is what I think who I am. Cos I'm my own person and in the end, I'm the only one I have to answer to. Share with me your most memorable lesson from year 2007 (if you have one).

The song playing right now is my fav from year 2007 from a great Aussie band, and I dedicate it to the memories of year 2007. God bless you all for a wonderful, happy and safe 2008, have a blast guys and see ya soon...MISS YA MADLY!

.. .. ..
Wake me up low with a fever
Walking in a straight line
Set me on fire in the evening
Everything will be fine
Waking up strong in the morning
Walking in a straight line
Lately I’m a desperate believer
But walking in a straight line.. .. ..

Nachi said...

wish you a very very very HAPPY NEW YEAR Keshi!! may you have 2000 and 8 wonderful memories this year...

:)

ps: to answer you question, the one thing that i have sort of figured out is that maybe i need to stop putting everyone else on a higher priority scale than myself. cause at the end of the day it leaves you standing there feeling and looking like an idiot.

2008 is going to be my year!!

Vik said...

Happy new year sweetheart, have an excellent, loving, and revitalizing year ahead. Amongst men, we wish each other much wealth, women and wine, but unless you're going to tell me about a hidden preference for women (pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease), much wealth and wine to you at least :p
Take care dear :)

My most memorable lesson this year was how important it is to keep important papers in places others can find if you become ill. When My mom took ill and passed my youngest brother and his wife had to move mountains to get her affairs in order. Best wishes to you Keshi and everyone else for a Happy New Year.

Belated Happy New Year Keshi

Dalicia said...

happy new year to you keshi! nice slides :)

VeenS said...

A very Happy New Year; hope it is blessed year with all your hopes and aspirations growing stronger!

in the last year I did learn that sometimes keeping my mouth shut is what helps a lot :D
and that whatever people say about you, in he end hard work really does pays off :)

and that all that YOU hope for might not come true, but hoping is nevertheless something that helps you out!! and I am not perfect at all... brr may be no one is more imperfect than me ;B

and did i wish you love, hapiness and success?
NO?
then there you go, Hope you get a Big Packpage of love, success and happiness in MONTHLY instALlMENTS

Chao!

Happy New Year! Loved the photos and the way they came in on the screen (I'm a technical idiot). I was in Vancouver 31st day and flew to London, but I got to celebrate the new year with Australia before I got on the plane!

Wishing you all the best in 2008!

Happy New Year Sweet Keshi!

2008 will make us better, greater, higher, sweeter and richer.
Do not let anything stand in the way of your dreams and visions.
God has given us the best things in life.

Take good care of the beautiful and wonderful life God has given you.

Avoid negative people.
Go with postive people and celebrate with those who celebrate life.

Cheers and God bless.

dharmabum said...

its a good thing not to take seriously what other people think or say about us. more often than not, i've noticed that people don't hurt us as much as we get hurt by them :)

warm new year wishes to you and your loved ones keshi

Menchie said...

Hey Keshi!! Just surfaced from the coma inducing food fog I've been in. Wishing you a very happy new year!!!

** My most memorable lesson from the year 2007 took place when a few harsh words from a loved-one that hurt me alot (for days), somehow made me the strongest that I have ever been. Not cos I've become numb

its been something along those lines for me too ;).

Too many lessons for its been the roughest year I've *EVER* had. The most imp. lesson though was tp never put my happiness in the hands of others. Guess u'll figure that out ;).

On a side note, 2007 really showed me as to how bad I was :D. Glad I got to know instead of living in bliss ignorantly ;).

A BERRY BERRY BERRY HAPPY NEW YEAR NUTTY :). May god (read as :(|) - lord hanuman) bless you with all the due success in all walks of life.

And god bless all your readers with less drama and more goodies from the nuttiest of all ... the one and only KESHI THE NUTTY. he he

Jeevan said...

Adoring pictures keshi! I like more the joyful smiles, a real x-mass tree, what are u doing now and more lights :) take good rest and come soon...

Sweetstickychewy said...

Lovely Tree Keshi..:))

And beautiful pics..:D

I guess the lesson i learnt in 2007 is to plan ahead.

Drama Div@ said...

Happy New Year darlin'

Sun Follower said...

First of all - Happy New Year!

My biggest lesson from this last year -and one I have had to learn over and again - LISTEN to my gut instinct. If it doesn't FEEL right, then it isn't right for me -no matter how badly I want it to be. If you do not listen to your own inner voice and feeling, then what trnaspires will probably be the exact opposite of what you'd hoped.

Amazing pics dear :)
I always think on New Year you know why??? coz I say to myself Keshi will celebrate it first than all :D
Happy New Year once again dear...keep that smile always
Cheers

Hi,Keshi..that was a nice pic of Sydney and a nice slide show.Tks.Have a great year ahead.

Paul said...

"I have become free...free from depending on what others say/think who I am."

That's a great threshold to cross, saves a lot of unecessary grief.

If I could ever remember if unnecessary takes two ns or two cs that would be a good threshold for me to cross at this point.

While I'm at it, I'm really not sure about the number of Hs in threshhold.

Heck, I'm a mess.

Happy New Year.

tnxx all HUGGGGGGGZ!
