Ready for 2009?
It’s almost New Year’s Eve, and the temperature in Taipei has just taken a dive – down to about 12 degree Celsius. So is the world ready for 2009?
Looking back over 2008, it’s quite hard to imagine a tougher year. With the big credit crunch setting in big times, the economies in most nations around the world have more or less taken a beating.
Well, after enjoying an entire year of roller coaster ride, I’m glad I still have my job and found a new hobby – not to mention being able to go abroad three times in the same year, or, even better, gone through three partners at my office (the first left early on in the year, the second one lasting less than 6 months, and the third one just arrived last month).
So after the big firework show at 101 (heard that it’s going to be Apple shining high up there), what’s there to look forward to in the coming year? Most people are doubting that the dip will hit the bottom in 2009, so that probably means more bad news. Then again, it could have been a lot worse – a major war. So I guess a New Year’s wish for me is that sane minds will find a way to retain the status-quo.
As for now, back to my vids.
Happy New Year, everyone!
