Adios 2008 - Mikemmery's Review

Today is the last day of 2008. Like any other years before, I look back of what I had been through and recap here, cherish the good memories and learn from the unpleasant ones. So here is my 2008 summary;


In 2007, I was designated as the Asst. Product Manager in my current company LG Electronics. Due to certain circumstances, I requested for a transfer late 2007 and the company set up a new department for me to handle. 2008, I officially head the Business Development department. Ups & downs throughout the year, the best achievement this year would be the product placement in KLIA, 200 plus LCD screens. In terms of career growth, I had a few calls from competitors in my industry, I did gave a serious thought to it as I had been with the same company for many years now but finally decided to see through the difficult recession years to come.


Not much changes. I had been going back to my hometown, Melaka pretty frequently. At least once a month, if not more. Mom been busy at the shop, at times she would say she wanna rest but since each and every of my siblings are scattered around, she would be bored to stay at home though. Dad as his usual self, had been bad in managing his work stress but overall this year it had been a happy year for him. At his age of 54, he's learning well on the internet. Bought him a wireless modem and besides his weekly football news, he would check on my blog once in a blue moon. Oh ya, my younger brother got married in November. The first in the family, it was a first time to all of us in the family.


Being single, you need friends. Out of those hundreds of friends, there are handful that you can really count on. Be it their companion or their presence when you needed them the most. My network had expanded tremendously. Blogger friends, clients & customers who eventually became my friends and we hang out together, drinking friends, facebook friends, friends I met during my oversea trips and the list can go on & on. And I wanna take this opportunity to thank you peeps for being there always. Let's rock 2009!


Early of the year, I thought I opened up my heart for someone. She disappointed me a lot, during months of courtship and eventually a very low profile one month relationship, I tried to cherish the good moments. I did during these few months opened up my heart to love again. Well, I still feel I made the right decision to call it off. It is better early than later. I met a lot of new female friends but not many I felt the chemistry. The second half of this year, I had been keeping close touch with my ex, somehow on my past very few posts, I still miss her but conscious mind telling to move on.


The country I visited most this year is Hong Kong. Three times in total this year. Besides Hong Kong, I visited Macao twice and stayed in the much talked about casino resort, The Venetian. Been to Thailand twice this year as well. Then as for domestically, been to Cameron, Ipoh, many times to Melaka tour guiding other friends, Kuala Selangor & Sabah. In 2009, confirmed destination for me so far is Thailand in Jan 09, Langkawi in Feb 09, China in Oct 09 & Hong Kong in Nov 09.


Everyone is talking about recession but our government are still optimistic about next year. I am not that confident though. In a way, I am glad I am still employed. I think this will be one of the worst recession cycle that I will need to pull through. My policy, stay in job & create value.


The best movie this year, I would award it to Ip Man. Quantum of Solace was a letdown. The Dark Knight is awesome too thanks to Heath Ledger but perhaps being Chinese I am a bit bias to award it to Ip Man.


Age really got caught up with me. I do not enjoy listening to fast tempo songs. I no longer tune to, my No.1 station now is Lite & Easy followed by No particular songs I like this year but I learn to appreciate jazz these days.


Not treble but it is a Double. The Devils did it again. My favorite F1 team lost out though. And on Malaysian sports scene... sigh... just a silver, you will be honored a Datuk. Imagine how many Datuks & Tan Sris it will be if it is enforced in China. Those tidak apa attitude... sigh...


Improved a lot since the last 2 years. Tone down a lot on my impulse buying & shopping. Unlike those days where I will buy gadgets and landed myself in debts. Spent more on traveling this year and thanks to a friend (he is reading this) who had helped me during my bad days in the previous years. For the first time too, I have the urge to get a house on my own. Probably it will be in 2009.


This year I would award it to the respectable Barrack Obama, the first black president of United States of America. Malaysia? I give up!


This time around, let it be Anwar Ibrahim. His plan to takeover sounded like Chipsmore cookies, now you see it, now you don't!

Blog of the Year

Shadowfox! Do I need to say more? Check it out yourself here.

Hmm... the time now is 6PM. I can go on and on the list but time is really limited. Reaching the big 30 this year, unlike those younger years, where I would be eagerly joining the countdown sessions in the clubs, parties, boozing. But tonight I opted for a quieter outing. Going for a movie with my best friend and a colleague & his wife.

Happy New Year to all Mikemmery's readers. I love you all!

Business Plan... Done!!!

Just got back from Thailand last night. 2008 is ending in like 3 days and today I have no choice but to finish up the business plan for next year and email to my boss for review.

Phew, finally done it on a sunny Sunday at Starbucks, The Borders. Can't believe that 2008 is ending in like 3 days. What had I done? What had I achieved? What are the things in 2008 that I am proud of?

Seems like I am still in the dark...

My Christmas Eve

The time now is 9.28PM, I am at the Starbucks next to the Kotaraya with the orange juice, my macbook & listening to the jazzy tune of Christmas carols. It had been a while since I really hang out around this area.

Took the LRT from the Kelana Jaya station, another experience I want to forget totally. The Putra LRT sucks maximum, the train services in Malaysia might be newer than the MTR in Hong Kong but the former surely ailing badly.

Sigh... being single... being alone... Christmas will just be like any other day to me except that I do not have to work and perhaps there will be more SMSes today than usual. Thanks for the SMSes wishes. Right now, I am waiting for my bus at 10.30PM heading to.........

Well... Merry Christmas to all and I will definitely put another post to wish you peeps a Happy New Year too. Enjoy the parties, enjoy the booze, enjoy the Christmas sex & enjoy the pressies received. Do not disturb me as I will be celebrating my Christmas eve in the bus :)

Ho! Ho! Ho!

I Miss...

I miss the way you laugh at my foot toes,
I miss the way you call my nickname,
I miss the way you play with your nose,
Most importantly I miss you...

I miss the kids,
I miss your parents, your brothers & SILs,
I miss your uncles, aunties & cousins,
But most importantly I miss you...

I miss the chee cheong fun,
I miss the glutinous rice with char siew,
I miss all the nicest food you brought me to,
But most importantly I miss you...

I miss your scoldings,
I miss your nagging,
I miss your long winded complains,
But most importantly I miss you...

I miss going groceries shopping with you,
I miss having home-cooked food with you,
I miss tah pau your favorite nasi lemak ayam,
But most importantly I miss you...

I miss listening to your problems,
I miss helping you at your work,
I miss those calls you made when I'm working late,
But most importantly I miss you...

Hmm... I can go on & on with the list... Once in a while walking down the memory lane made me recall so many things. Only one girl in my life had successfully conquered my mind with this even after so long.

Will I ever find one, the one who I can grow old with and filled up my life with sweet memories. I need some hugs now...

December Welcoming January

I had great weekend last week. Went back to Melaka with 2 of my best buddies and we proceeded to Port Dickson the next day. It's always nice to have outing with your best mates but somehow last weekend something had been occupying my mind most of the time and when I believe I want to release my stress totally, I could not help but to think of it... It's my project.

The project is huge, multi-million project. I had lost 2 projects for the early 2nd half of this year. Two projects I followed up closely was hijacked in the last minute and this had somehow traumatised me and I only believe in myself but no others so for the project that I currently taking care of, I cannot afford to delegate to others because of the past experience. Today was the tender interview, lucky for me, everything went well. But the decision is not out as yet. I hope that the day will come where I can shout to my readers that I manage to grab the project. It will certainly be a milestone for me. Wish me luck peeps and I hope my hard works pay off.

It's 1030pm, office is becoming really chilly and quiet. Hungry while posting this. The coming 2 days will also be seriously busy for me. And tomorrow I will be attending a dinner in Solaris, for GUINNESS® Draught lovers out there, feel free to join us! Check it out here. And as for X'mas eve, I will be out of country again. And will be back on the 27th night and looking forward to a wedding dinner on the 28th in Kajang. A very hectic week for me indeed.

So in any event, any friends who called me on my mobile or MSN me which I had failed to reply or even find some time to speak to you guys, my apology ya. Hope that December will be gone soon and is very anticipated about January 2009.

My mood sounded like this now...

Baby, you're not lost ya!

New Year's eve... what's the plan???

The Meaning of Urgency for Dummies

I hardly post anything related to my work in my blog here. Very rarely indeed. But the attitude of some in the office really ticks me off. At my position as the Business Development Manager, I met corporate people from various industries and I do care of what I communicated to these people.

What triggered me to write this is the anger in me, the thought of some young cikus working attitude nowadays. When you blardy promised me something, you better make sure you do it by hook or by crook, no excuse & fast execution. I cannot afford to sit in the office for some people who is wasting my blardy time and blardy ignoring my instruction. If you think you fit to be on certain position in the company then you blardy lift up to the corporate expectation.

The moment we lag behind on certain decision making process, we will lose out to others in this competitive world. Please understand the word "URGENCY" for god sake.

I do hope these blardy young birds learn before it's too late.

For those who got things done for me today, thanks and I appreciate it. My day would be beautiful if not because of one person. Because of you, my project is delayed. Because of you, I am stressed for nothing.

Will You Go Back To Your Ex?

While driving to office this morning, I heard this interesting discussion over The Breakfast Show on and events happening lately did triggered me to think about it on this beautiful Tuesday morning. I do not know whether I got the discussion topic right or not but it sounded like this, "Will You Return To Your Ex If He/She Comes For You?"

Hmm... that discussion got me think quite a bit. What is the possibility? I do not dare to write it off myself frankly. I had 3 relationships and all ended well, there are no sour notes between myself & my ex-gfs and we still very much keeping in touch. It had been 2 years though since my last relationship, I nearly got myself committed again mid this year and unfortunately in the turnaround of event, my heart & instinct told me that she is not the one and I decided to move on.

Going back to ex-flame, I believe it is very much depending on how that relationship ended. Will I go back to my ex-flame or will I ever find someone new? Or will I be better off being a single soul? Hmm... got to go back to my thinking again...

How about you? Will you get back to your ex?

Those College Years

Yesterday was a public holiday for Selangor in conjunction of the Sultan Selangor birthday. It had been a while having teh tarik till wee hours with my 2 bff. It's like walking down memory lane during the college days, we would talk about everything under the sun. From recession to my recent posting about Kenny.

Picture above was taken back in college, how I miss those days when I am so much slimmer, with earrings & tattoos. And the babe sitting beside me was my ex-gf which to date I do miss dearly. My 2 bff, brother Chong (with specs) & Rim (holding bag in the center).

Oh how I miss those college days. And there is this thing I realize about hanging around with guy friends, it is so hard to get angry & temperamental. While with gf, small little things, I exploded unnecessarily at times. With guy friends, no matter how our brother tease or irritate us, we still can keep cool. Funny innit?

Looking forward to an all-guys outing this weekend. Life ain't that bad being a single after all.

I Never Attack Kenny Sia

I am one of's readers. I first met Kenny last year at the Bloggers Buff event. Yes, we shook hand ONCE. And yes we bumped into each other on other several events but I shy away as I am just a small little fly compared to him. And I do not have his number either. Yes, I used to be one of those regulars in his cbox and met some really nice peeps there.

When you happen to know someone in person, yes you call him your friend, whether it is a close friend or hi-and-bye friend. We are more like a hi-and-bye friend. The last time we met was at the GUINNESS® Gastronomic Workshop back in late October 2008. That was also the first time I saw Samantha Poh, his ex-gf. Back then, I did not even know she's his gf and I did not know what was the hate sites or whatsoever opera playing amongst the Malaysian big bloggers. See, how ignorant am I???

Then I bumped into Kennysai and read one of Samantha Poh's latest postings and found out she broke up with Kenny. And of course like many other readers of Kennysia sure wonder what had happened and of course Kenny has not officially say anything in his blog about the breakup and the reason. Then the next question arise now, why am I so nosy about somebody's else personal business? Well... then why so many people including Kenny Sia himself tumpang glamor on Chua Soi Lek's sex scandal? Simply because Kenny is somebody. The same goes to Dr. Chua Soi Lek, he is somebody. Try and see if I slept with someone who will even give a damn care?

When you are indeed somebody, be prepared these sorts of things will happen. Whether it is good or not, take it like a man. It is not fair to take only the goods all the time. And in my previous posting, Kenny said I personally attack him. For what reason??? To gain more traffic??? What will those few hundreds uniques do to me??? I will still be the same old Michael Song innit?

Come on brother Kenny, perhaps you will think I tumpang glamor on this but frankly it is as simple as poking fun and my apology for making you the product of entertainment in my blog. There is certainly difference between personal attack & fun-poking. Just like during a conversation with a male friend, you said, "Fuck You!". It does not mean you really mean to fuck him innit? I am laughing while typing this, it's hilarious innit? Like the villain in The Dark Knight said, "Why so serious?"

Brother Kenny, just like you poking fun on Al-Rajhi Bank logo, what was on your mind back then???

Chill brother chill... take Dr. Chua for example. If you "holiao", no matter what people say, you will still "holiao". Don't merajuk, friend back?

Merry Christmas!!!

Kenny Sia's A to Z

This is what happened when you have a long weekend, not feeling well and surfing the internet the whole day at home. In Malaysia, we have our very own hero Raja Petra in the socio-political scene but of late the political scene been really quiet with not much of action in it.

Thanks to brothers Shadowfox & Kenny Sai, when I first bumped into their sites, technically I am not incline to believe what'd been discussed in the blogosphere on the self-proclaimed No. 1 blogger in Malaysia, Kenny Sia but as I scrolled through post by post and link up the bits & pieces from other bloggers that were involved in this saga, it does make sense and made Kenny Sia look quite stupid in a way. No matter whether he is guilty or not, once you made the girl a victim in love, you are guilty for everything.

Somehow rather, looking around the blogosphere, at times I do not understand why advertisers paid thousands to people like Kenny just for advertorial when his jokes are becoming really cold nowadays. Besides most of the time his postings, he enjoyed putting ham sap jokes and nowadays barely put any sense of entertainment reading it. The worst part of it, he can make jokes about our current VP of MCA, Dr Chua Soi Lek sex scandal while he himself trapped in a *ahem* *ahem*. While Kenny enjoying his glamourous time as blogger, one person we tend to overlook is the Muar rapper Namewee. I feel he is more original and more creative in many ways and with his latest controversy it triggered me into going back to my schooling days to do "sentence making" with ABC...

A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P (pause) Q, R, S, T, U, V (pause) W and X, Y, Z. Now I know my ABC, tell me what you think of me...

ABC Sentence Making

Kenny enjoys "Aa Aa Aa" without the need to know "Berapa" is the "Cibai". When the whole blogosphere question him, he asked everyone to "Diam Diam" lah while he continued his "Ee Ee Ee" with a few other chicks. Many other guys admire his "Fucking" & "Gan" skills and some even call him "Holiao". But little does he knows, while he enjoyed his "Iya Iya Iya" session, he got caught and this time "Jialat" liao because not only his pants on fire but his "Kukubird" & coconut-sized "Lampachi" also on fire. The moral of the story is, never "Mm Mm Mm" with someone else while you are in a relationship. "Na" now take it lor and think twice before you "Oh Oh Oh". Your action had made you like a human with "Pork" brain. "Q" damn 9 hard. I believe throughout these years while you "Rrr Rrr Rrr", you surely "Sibeh" song. And with this, I am sure you are very "Tulan" by now and if "U" continue to read this you will kexiao and you might need "Viagra" every time you wanna get hard. "Wow" you still wanna deny & tell a lie without blinking your eyes. To me, you really "Xiasueh" but to many others, they still wanna know "Y Y Y". Alah... time for me to "Zzzzzz Zzzzzz Zzzzzz", no time for low life like you.

Happy holiday & to complete this, watch the video from our brother in Muar.

What Is Happiness???

What is happiness???

Happiness is when I can make "you" happy. I know "you" are reading this as my silent reader. Be it the first man like what "you" said or I will be the last? Like "you" said, "you" can't predict the future, so am I.

So be it, I am happy today because "you" are happy. And it makes what I did in between my busy-ness more worthwhile.

Talking about busy-ness, lately I hardly update my blog thanks to my tight & hectic schedule. I will be flying again tomorrow, this time around domestically to Penang to witness the launch of Penang Cultural Fest. I will be back on Friday and need to rush back to Melaka for one of my best mates bachelor's night. Then be one of the best men for his wedding on Saturday.

Hopefully I will be inspirational enough to post more regularly.

So peeps, what is happiness means to you???
