The Loooong Awaited Wrap-Up of 2007

Okay, okay. I know, I know. I’m practically 30 days behind in wrapping up my yesteryear. And my lack of updates didn’t help either. I think that this year is going to be more challenging for me, than my past 3 years combined.

That’s correct. I expect to meet MORE new challenges and obstacles this year – not just in business, but also in personal, social and relationship growth. If life is like a game of Monopoly, I’m certainly drawing more OPPORTUNITY cards than I can handle.

Anyways, to move on into the New Year (yes Chinese New Year is coming really soon) won’t be complete without a formal wrap-up of my 2007.

Let’s start from the beginning shall we? πŸ˜‰

The 2007 Grand Wrap-Up!

January 2007
In spite of the Taiwan Earthquake that occurred in late December 2006 when the cables were affected and half of the world was severed from Internet access, I had to push the PLRGold4 launch date forward. The launch was a success, nonetheless, in spite of the setback! Thanks to my family, JV Partners and Customers who supported me in executing the Product Launch!

April 2007
I had moved from Johor Bahru to Petaling Jaya alone to pursue an Advanced Internet Marketing Apprenticeship Program, offered to me and Khai by Sen Ze. Thank you for the experience and the ‘insider’ exposure of an E-Commerce Company! πŸ™‚

This was also the time when I got to know more and more new people gradually such as Foo (a.k.a. Fuu Fuu), Karan, Jesper, Nalini, Thulasi, Azhari, Daniel Chin, and more.

We had fun playing at the cyber cafes and board games in friend’s houses after a hard day’s work (at the Apprenticeship Program) – Khai and Yuenn proved to be good buddies.

This was also the same time I started my Personal Blog. Here’s one of the earliest post (test post didn’t count).

May 2007
Malaysian Internet Marketing Troopers stomp the Singaporean yard! Khai, Gobala, Melvin, Vince Tan, and I took a trip down to our neighboring country to attend the World Internet Mega Summit event at Expo Hall!

For the first time, we get to meet so many Internet Entrepreneurs from other countries face-to-face! Two of whom I met along the corridors of the Expo Hall had made a great impact on my life. You know, Email and MSN can be boring sometimes.

There are too many awesome chaps to name but check out the awesome people we met here.

September 2007
A lot of interesting events took place this month alone, some of which are worth mentioning. I pulled off my best Product Launch for the year with PLRGold5. I decided to remain in Petaling Jaya even after Apprenticeship contract had ended, and moved to a new place (to set up my Bachelor’s pad) :-).

This also the month I chilled after feeling burnt out, and was glad to have the opportunity to get to know the great minds behind Mindvalley Labs better.

Vishen, Akshay, Khai Lee, Mike Reinings, Xin-Ci, Meike, Vincent Liew, Timothy Su… All great and fun people. πŸ™‚

Don’t just take my word for it. See it all here.

November 2007
This has to simply be the best month of my life to date! Previously, I had never taken celebrating my birthday seriously but my 21st birthday had to be exceptional. It was also the same day my friends Khai & Yuenn were married, and I attended their wedding in the shoes of their best man.

Things got more interesting when our friends from abroad such as Indonesia and Iran came down to join the fun, and our Internet Marketing ‘comrades’ took time off their busy schedules so they don’t get excluded!

Cool pics and detailed journal on The Great November is here.

December 2007
It’s coming to the end of the year! πŸ˜› I spent the last days of 2007 joining the Life Changing Party at Genting Highlands with a group of friends.

These are just some of the greatest highlights of 2007 for me, though of course there’s more to this fruitful year than a summary of a few lines. I have no regrets but I only wish I have the memory to name every single one of the great people I’ve met – new and old – on this blog; they truly deserve honorable mention.

(If I didn’t name you by any chance, I apologize but that doesn’t mean I’ve totally forgotten you.) πŸ™‚

2007 presented a wealth of opportunities for me to reunite with old friends and meet new people. When I looked back, I’m glad that I return to my original hometown even though against my initial better judgment. If not for that simple decision, none of these would have ever happened – at all.

So what’s in store for us in 2008? I can’t wait to find out myself. πŸ™‚

    *** SIDE NOTE *** Okay sorry, no pics and photos this time but I promise there will be, in the next blog post. Thank you for your continuous support and please check back often! πŸ™‚

    Hey,

    So this is the post you told me you had recently posted. πŸ™‚

    Good to see so many things happening for you in the past year.

    Among the months you mentioned above, I’d pick May and November as two of the best months of my 2007 too, for a little different reasons though.

    Best wishes in your 2008!

    “Auntie” Yuenn,
    Vince handed me a box of Ferrerro Roches last Christmas season I think. My first thought was handing them to you instead but my appetite couldn’t wait. Remind me yeah? Thank you too! πŸ™‚

    Ladan,
    Hmmm… I can see why. πŸ˜‰
