Bubye 2008! - Narcissism is Necessary

Bubye 2008!

I’ve enjoyed myself reading several blogs detailing their lives in 2008. And I’m going to do the same. I think many people would feel quite empty on the last day of 2008, probably asking themselves what they’ve accomplished in the past year? What happened in the past year, didn’t we just celebrate New Year yesterday?

And so, I’m going to list down what I’ve done that’s memorable to me in 2008. You know, so that whenever I do something in 2009, I’d make sure that it’s going to be bigger and better than 2008.


Appeared on the cover of The Star’s RAGE as the feature story of young people who work from home.

Rage cover.


Finally got my arse around to use my Nikon D70s properly. This is one of my very first decent shots.



Appeared on The Star in the Chill Out section.

Chill Out.


Participated in Nokia N82 Soul of the Night race. It was one of the funnest things I’ve ever done!

Su Ann, Suan and me
With Su Ann and Suan.

Ah, I also had lunch with Chef in Black, Emmanuel Stroobant. Although I must say I had completely no idea who he was :P

Emmanuel Stroobant.
I took this picture and the wonderful PR still owes me the picture of me and him.


Sponsored PR services for a fund raising event in aid of Persatuan SLE Malaysia.

World Lupus Day
Can you spot KimKomm’s logo? :)

And of course, seeing Tiesto after stupidly missing the first one. I was drunk/asleep most of the time, but I managed to catch all the important moments :P



Zapped off all my pit hair with Bella Skincare. OMG best decision I’ve ever made!

The last picture of me with furry pits!


Went to my very first costume party, Nuffnang Maxis Wild Live Party in a DIY costume made from scratch!


Went to Krabi, Thailand and had an awesome time.



Went to Worcester, Birmingham and Liverpool for a month and had the grandest time! That also means I’ve made my mark in all three Primarks of Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool :P

Malvern Hills.

Visited a chocolate factory for the first time! Fidani ftw!


Appeared on Surf! magazine with my hiao pic.

Got my lust for Nokia N96 satiated and found Garmin.

N96 ftw!


Dissolved KimKomm :( but joined the coolest company in da world…Subaru

So I had a fantastic year. How about you? I hope you had as much fun as I did too :)

Here’s to a better 2009!

    Hi Kimberly, this is the first time I’ve visited your blog and I find it really interesting. I like the header especially because it is a real good shot! It’s really natural and it’s one of those shots that tell a thousand tales though. Thumbs up and happy new year!
