*Gasp!* Yes, I actually updated. And of course I have to, because it's the FIRST DAY OF JANUARY! So, if the superstition's true, then I will be blogging for the rest of the year. Which means whoopee.

If there's an evening I both dread and anticipate, it's New Year's Eve. I mean come on, with all those firecrackers you'd think world war III is happening right in front of your gate, and who wants that? I tell you, firecrackers are scary. So, being a wuss, I curse and confine myself to my room everytime the whole Philippines go on fucking firecracker frenzy. (just trying a little alliteration.). But you know what? I'm sensing this year is going to be totally different - good different. Thanks to my brother dragging my terrified butt upstairs to our roofdeck, I witnessed an array of fireworks that is totally movie-worthy that I conquered my fear of its evil brothers: sinturon ni hudas and those other deafening firecrackers that has nothing visually pleasing to offer. I still get a jolt of fear everytime I hear a loud quitis but I can now stand it without wanting to strangle the person who fired it. The point is, even if it meant that firecrackers will be flying and exploding above me, I went out and up during New Year's Eve, which I deem is my first accomplishment in the year o7. I take it as a sign that I am going to face this year with confidence (yeah, right. :-D ).

This day was a great year-starter. We had pasta and chicken for lunch, with scrumptious, home-made cookies and cream ref cake for dessert. My family and I bonded while playing darts, which I, unfortunately, suck at. Apparently, aiming isn't my thing. Balak ko pa naman sanang mag-ala ninja Misao - yung tipong limang 'kunai' ang hawak sa isang kamay tapos itatapon lang nang parang walang ka-effort effort at matatamaan ang bullseye. Haha, asa. Sana lang makarating ako sa lebel na yun diba. Kelangan nang ipunin ang chakra! :D

Before I sign off, (aba, balik ingles) I want to give a tribute to the year that was, 2006. It had been a great year; a time of many firsts. It was the year when:
