and i was thinking at the start of the year that time was kinda travelling quite slowly… and you can say that it is coz it’s only september… one thing i like to do occasionally is to read back the stuff i wrote a year back to see what i was feeling like at that point in time… well september last year i only had ONE post – about the lumix camera (which i still absolutely lurve to bits!)… hrmmm… i dun suppose i was in a bloggy mood and i haven’t even signed up for twitter yet (which is the reason why i’m blogging less nowadays… kekeke)

this year’s september marks the start of my travel preparations to europe next year… yah i know i’ve been talking about it for the entire of this year and it’s only going to happen next year… but i’m really looking forward to it, super excited and nervous at the same time… it kinda hit home when i was digging around flickr for photos of oktoberfest after which i realised that there are 11 HUGEEEEEEASS tents at the event ground during the festival… which gave me a shock… like it really hit home that it’s a damn big event… and that’s only in one city in germany… sigh i think singaporeans can never get their heads around the sheer scale of stuff outside of this little country… i remember going to CES last year and being floored by how big the exhibition halls were… seriously makes our singapore expo look puny in comparison… that’s why i’m nervous… it’s like you’re standing at the edge of the platform where you have split seconds to decide whether to bungee or not (okay i’ve never done that before.. so i hope it feels like that!) *gulp* =P and all of a sudden i might be visiting a friend studying in london (she was like ‘are you coming to visit me? i can bring you ard’) which is reallly tempting coz i’ve always wanted to go london as well! so potentially three countries in two weeks… hrm…

another thing – today my fren drove me to this area in tanglin just to show me a pretty famous house… basically the owner is a billionaire and he has a collection of 13 supercars (ferrari enzo being one of them)… it’s really one thing to see the photos on the internet and another thing to see the row of 5 or 6 rare to uber rare red ferraris and a zonda type f less than 50 metres away…. i have never felt so small or insignificant until today… seriously it was like realising that oktoberfest is one damn huge event all over again… only that this was more of the disparity between different pple in singapore… wow not too sure if humbled was the correct word to use.. perhaps awed would be much more suitable…

in any case… i’m looking forward to what the year ahead will bring! =D
