The year that was

2009 will always be remembered by me as the year in which I became a father. Nothing else could possibly override this one. That fateful evening on 20th Jan when I first held Ibrahim is a highlight of not just the year but a life. We became proud parents that day.

Otherwise the year has been a mixed bag of sorts.

Work has been unpredictable. First half was as good as it could where I hit 165% of my sales target while the second half was an exact opposite. Not sure why my fortunes were fluctuating so drastically like a pendulum. So as a resolution, I am looking for better stability in sales in 2010.

I bought my first car this year. And am absolutely loving it. Though the car has a few niggles and I’ve had to shell out a few bucks on it, I am enjoying my time behind the wheel.

Health has been on the backseat too. I’d love to lose those last few kgs and have a better (read: any) fitness regime. Back in September, I took an entire dose of TamiFlu because the doctors thought I had H1N1. Eventually turned out to be food poisoning. Well that’s another story. So here’s to a fitter 2010.

Me and my wife did not have a chance to take a vacation this year. Mainly coz we were not sure if we could manage it with a little baby. So I am looking forward to a little bit of traveling in 2010. Our visas for Singapore are valid till Jan end. What say, hon? πŸ˜‰

Next month, I will be completing two years with my wife. I’ve not had enough opportunities to tell her how much I love her, cherish her and relish our journey together. She gave me a little miracle this year and is doing a bloody good job at raising him. Hats off to you, dear.

I’d like to raise Ibrahim in a safe, enjoyable, healthy and friendly world. So here’s wishing for all that in 2010.

Happy New Year, folks. Hope y’all have a fantastic year ahead. Cheers.
