2009 Reviewed

I can really, really say that I’ve never had so much fun in a long, long time. Or rather, in my life! 🙂 The last 2 months have been sky high for me. And looking back, Year 2009 has been the greatest year for me to date.

It had been challenging. It had been exciting. And I gained a lot of new experience in so many things I would have never even thought of trying, or getting into.

It’s easy to understand why when I review and reflect again.

January 2009: Trip Around the Country!

Spent the first month of the year going around states in the country!

Went to Genting Highlands. Went to Desaru. Started my first life-changing Forex journey with Orange Roshan and the SRDC’ians in KL. Relatives came over to visit us in Johor Bahru. We also paid our Singaporean relatives a visit during Chinese New Year.

February 2009: Visit Sydney, Australia!

Met up with my online marketing friend Aurelius Tjin. Attended the Sydney online entrepreneurs gathering. Climbed the Harbour Bridge. Visited the Three Sisters. And did a whole lot more fun stuff while I was here for one whole week!

March – April 2009: Gadget Pimping and GIS Penang

This was probably the most challenging time for me. Broke up with my ex-girlfriend and as it is my first relationship, well, I took it rather badly and bitterly. Got back in… and got a strike-out again! 🙁 Sucks to the max.

I was still primarily based in Johor Bahru at this point, and I wanted to start anew. Figured being busy with something else would keep me occupied from heartache so I went on a personal ‘make over’. Hmm… found out shopping isn’t such a bad thing either. 🙂

Pimped myself up with new gadgets – Playstation 3, new custom suit, got my own car (and gave the Myvi to my mom). Plans were underway to move to PJ to start anew.

Right about the same time, I was invited as a main speaker to speak for the Global Internet Summit event in Penang.

May 2009: Mega Red Packet and Moving to PJ

Pulled off the mega product launch finally, after six months of working on the Mega Red Packet project! 🙂 More than $300,000 in total sales in 10 days! It was exhaustive, but I had to move on to the next phase of life: moving to PJ on my own.

Settled in, bought new furniture and had a house warming party to celebrate with friends a bit. 🙂

Wild Goose Chase!

Hah! This is another interesting, HUGE highlight of 2009. From the time I met Elle Wong, it’s been a wild goose chase for riches! It almost felt as if we were casted into a movie of our own, like the Indiana Jones version for racing to make lots of moo-lah!

Am I making this up? You decide.

Started off with attending the Millionaire Mind Intensive 3-day seminar in The Mines, KL…

The very next day after the seminar, we pulled off Brand Dynamics PLR launch together – making this the first Private Label Rights product to have both male and female voice over. 🙂

Hey, we didn’t stop here though. We hosted the IM Weekend Workshop next. My first time hosting a workshop of my own. I’m so used to working from home. 😛

We didn’t stop here either. NEXT… (how many times did I use that word? LOL)

We went to Singapore to attend a follow-up seminar on MMI called Guerrilla Business Intensive by T Harv Eker.

Oh, not forgetting we met up with Calvin Woon, Patricia Lin and Maritius buddy Jonathan Teng. 🙂 Jhong Ren tagged along too.

THEN… we pulled off a bigger launch than Brand Dynamics – called the 7-Day PLR Sale. Did above $50,000 in sales in 7 days in November. Woo Hoo! $ $ $ $ $

I’ve done better launches but for the work we put in, it was well worth it. Not to mention I was pulling off my ‘last minute king’ here. 😛

WE DIDN’T STOP HERE… early this month we went to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah to attend the Orange Roshan SRDC Bootcamp!


July 2009: Bought My First House!

Lakeview house for Mom and Ashley in Johor. 🙂 We never had a property of our own before. Where my father had failed to do so for my family, I’m glad I’m able to provide!

Right about the same time, I also formed my own company in Malaysia called AMLOH CORPORATION SDN. BHD. Hey, paperwork is insane and I nearly went crazy when I first started it out. The procedures to set up, pay taxes and handling the legalities were highly frustrating and later got the hang out of it.

Oh hey, also visited Bangkok, Thailand 🙂

August 2009: Jungle Warfare

I think I will be doing this for a long, long time. 🙂

November 2009: My First Halloween Costume

Thanks to Ashley’s incredible work in helping me out a bit. 🙂 Elected best costume at the Mindvalley Mischievious Midnight Minglers!

December 2009: Orang Asli Trip, Ex-DJian Gathering and RYM Xmas Party

The best month was saved for the last of the year! Rejoined the church I used to go to when I was a teenager, I went on a trip to the Orang Asli settlement in Kuantan, Pahang.

Also reunited with old school friends from SMKDJ…

Mmmm, couldn’t find a more suitable pic to describe the gathering in one picture. But hey, I’m not complaining. 😉

Also the RYM Xmas Party towards the near end of the year…

All in all… it’s been amazing for me. I hope it’s been for you too this year. And I know 2010 holds much more in store for all of us.

Happy New Year (and also congratulations for surviving into the first 10 years of the 21st century LOL)! 😀
