Highlights of my 2004

So how did my year go? Here are the experiences I feel truly thankful for...

Began practicing for my major backpacking trip (happening no later than Dec 2007) via "medium-cost" journey in Central (Koh Samui, Koh Phangan) and South Thailand (Krabi, Phi Phi) on two separate occasions which included a one-week stop in Koh Phangan for the world-famous Full Moon Party ;

Eleven (11) months of partying around town ; rediscovered love for trance music ; maintained tolerable levels of alcohol intake (never got into any trouble) ; increased stamina to stay awake until 6am during long nights (except when there is work the following day!) ;

Beyond business contacts, expanded network of local & overseas personal friends through (a) travel , (b) night-outs , (c) online conversations, (d) first-time meet-ups following e-mail exchanges ; met new friends from France, Germany, Iran, Lithuania, Malta, Morocco, Israel, Ireland, Canada, Sweden, Turkey, Austria, Australia, Singapore, the UK, US, Netherlands, and of course the Philippines.

Surprise "brother-will-take-care-of-everything" overseas trip for my only sibling so she can visit Bangkok for the first time ; last time she boarded a plane was 14 years ago!

Increased fascination for reality TV shows and talent search (Big Brother Australia, American Idol, Australian Idol, the Amazing Race and a few local ones) ; always cool to see how individuals take that first bold step and eventually realise they made the right choice;

Involvement in major change initiatives at work -- people, process, systems, and policies

Got a new vehicle and gained confidence in driving a car on automatic transmission
