I couldn’t possibly reply to you guys individually, but coming into my 44th year, there are a few things that I have notably realised.

We tend to spend more time putting on the green (agreed by Dana Empading). Back in 2005, I spend just little time putting.. look, aim, hit..! It doesn’t matter if you win the game or not, but its the network, friendship and beer that matter most. However, that time, most of my schoolmates are busy with their career. Today, it is good to see them on the fairway (ehh Stephen, Dana, etc.)

LOL.. dun ask when we are going to have a round.. I am busy ferrying marine crew these days. But, an hour at the driving range should be a good time to catch up with the latest gossip on Dayak politics.

Another notably thing is that, we tend to eat less meat after forty. Its not so much about health, but our teeth are no longer tightly arranged like before. So, its more of fish and vegetable on the dinner table.

Coming home late after beer… remember this, don’t call before noon. We are having a bad headache!

Anyway, I would like to thank everyone for your birthday messages, prayer, calls and smses. God bless you too and here is a video for everyone to view.
