2014: A year in review

Wow! It has been a really fast year – Rough but fast like water rafting. Where do I start? Well, I won’t have much to cover as I made only a few blog entries.

January to April

I spent January essentially just planning for my month long trip to Vietnam and I have yet to post the blog entries about those (note to self: Make it a new years resolution.)

I did do an informal review for Kodak Proimage 100 I had used for the Still life exhibition over at the printroom KL recently had just a major update! So check out the website!

But I didn’t have to go back to Labuan for Chinese new year because of a medical situation – THANK GOD! Well not really – I still had to go back after CNY for a short visit.

After that I went off to Vietnam in Feb and came back in March – had a great time and made some friends along the way! And finished off a project I had thought not possible to complete when I left my old job.

But once I came back, it was return to the Ratrace once more when I started my new job.

May to August

Did nothing out of the ordinary, and so worked on my blog entry backlogs such as the tips, and gear review.

It was basically just that until Sept.

September to December

Between September and October, I left that job because I just didn’t fit in with the position. It would be my second attempt at trying my hand at the telecommunication industry and failing. Still I quickly found another job oddly more suited to my field.

Meanwhile I read about the demise of more slide film, prompting me to write this article about my time with slide

After I joined this new company, I was quickly sent off to Manila for training and barely after a week I came back, I was sent off to Jakarta for a month. It was a very tiring, but I have to say the project manager was on site with us and did a fantastic job of handling the client and managing the project timeline – it should also be noted, the project manager has many years of technical knowledge and not just some idiot who studied business in high school unlike that previous company.

While there, I had some battery problems with my FM3a which prompted this article about battery life.

My assignment ended in December and returning to KL, the assignments and work slowed down due to the end of the year. Decided to take some time off (Amazingly I had leave since I had just joined) and attended Comic Fiesta 2014 with Fuminari!

With that done, it comes as no surprise that 2014 is almost over, it was a fast and tiring one. Many things went wrong but some lead to better things and hopefully to greater things next year. I learned more about what I can do and what limits I need to overcome still.

2014, you have indeed been a painful year, but like a drill sergeant, you did it to make us tougher for the next one.

Good bye 2014, tell your other siblings I miss them, I’ll send your love to 2015! ^_^

PS: yeah this article was made in a hurry –  I should definitely spend more time writing articles in advance so I can really tarp them up before posting.
