Well, it’s time to say good bye to 2009. Time flies very fast this year. And I am sure this is my very very busy year due to I am the only person in my section. One man show all the way until last day of 2009.

As usual, I am here to summarize what I have done / achieved / wasted in year 2009. :p

01. Tokyo, Japan

April 09. I managed to visit my dream country. Thanks to JAL‘s promotion and Ms. Carine Lee planned the itineraries. It was a 7D6N trip. We (Henry, Siew Fong, Carine and Connie) chose to stay for 4 nights at Kent Hotel in Shinjuku and another 2 nights at Kappa Tengoku Ryokan in Hakone. Places we have visited are: Shinjuku, Akihabara, Harajuku’s Takeshita Street, Shibuya, Ginza, Tsukiji’s Fish Market, Asakusa’s Sensoji Temple, Disney Sea, Hakone, Gotemba Premium Outlet & Ueno’s Ameyoko. I LOVE Japan very much…

02. The Khmer, Cambodia

July 09. This was the very 1st oversea trip joined by all members of The TCSS plus their partners. It was 4D3N trip. And thanks to Christina for the opportunity to stay at Le MERIDIEN Angkor. It is a very nice hotel. We visited Bakheng Hill, Angkor Thom, Bayon Temple, Ta Prohm Temple (Tomb Raider Temple), Angkor Wat and Tonle Sap River. The weather was hot everyday during our stay but it finally got heavy rain on the night before we left Cambodia.

03. Green Tokyo, Japan

August 09. 4 Otaku Youngster decided to pay the 1:1 Gundam a visit before its disassemble on 31st of the month. Of course, JAL played an important role too by giving out an irresistible deal on the air fares at that time. This a 5D4N short trip. Our main concern was the Green Tokyo Exhibition where the 1:1 Gundam stood still there. And of course we won’t missed Akihabara – The Otaku heaven. Beside these 2 places, we also visited Tsujiki’s Fish Market, Asakusa’s Sensoji Temple, Ueno’s Ameyoko, Tokyo Tower, Imperial Palace, Harajuku, Shibuya, Shinjuku and Ginza. And this was the 2nd time I visited Japan, and it just happened less than 6 months. GOSH!!!

06. Hot Toys

After half-retired from GunPla and most of the PVC, I started my journey to 1/6 Action Figures. In year 2009, I have bought 5 Hot Toys figures. I believe they will increasing in number in year 2010… Gosh…

07. Platinum Trophies

Got my 1st Platinum Trophy in PS3 games in 27th March 2009. Until end of 2009, there were already 15 in total. Games that got me the Platinum trophy are: Resident Evil 5, Dead Space, Prince Of Persia, Infamous, Wolverine, Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Tomb Raider: Underworld, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Batman: Arkham Asylum, [Prototype], Assassin’s Creed II, God Of War & God Of War II.
One thing not forgot to mention is most of the games are not belong to me. I just “checked out” from a “Library”. Thanks to Vince Ha…

08. The Best Movie

Avatar is the best movie I’ve watched in year 2009. I even watched the 3D version. And I am sure going to buy the Blu-Ray of the movie when it released.

09. Top 3 PS3 Games

There are many PS3 games released in year 2009. I have ranked top 3 PS3 games which I think is worth to play as they are excellent in gameplay and graphic. They are: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Assassin’s Creed II and Resident Evil 5. Year 2010 will be more games coming in, like God Of War III and Final Fantasy XIII.

10. Thank You

I would like to thank my lovely wife – Siew Fong for her taking care of my well being. I got improved and better immunity system against running nose. Maybe also because of we started to consume of Fish Oil and Vitamin C. And of course the good water. Also for always being so supportive to me during good and bad time, and also during time when i had a hard time with my work. Last but no least, for the “one eye open, one eye close” on my collectibles. LOL…

Beside that, I also want to thank to all brothers in The TCSS. I am sure there will be less fun & excitement without them. They have taught me a lot of things like photography, toys, travel and life…

And last and certainly not least, I would like to thank to all my family members and those being helped me all the while. ARIGATO GOZAIMASU!!!width=”600″
