HOLY GUACAMOLE! HAS IT REALLY BEEN A YEAR?

I was checking out my calendar last night…

Hmm28th of March. I gawked at the date for a full 10 seconds…ok, 9! What?... 10 is a bit overacting? Heh?... But still, I can’t seem to remember which of my good-for-nothing friends is celebrating a birthday or sumthin’…

Three more seconds…nothin’… then BAM! It’s BISEAN’s first year anniversary! Well, I’ll be dang!

Who would have thought this blog would last a year? – Well, I did. Ha! Take that! And I intend to keep it goin’ for years till I prove to all of you that our region is p-a-r-a-d-i-s-e of great people.

More than 50 towns and cities in 9 countries (except Brunei, but we promise to visit this year) visited in one year…459 blog posts…614,000 hits… NOT BAD! Not bad at all. Woohoo!

To the little man who called us prostitutes, to the tiny maggot who wanted to take our naked pictures, to the social-climber who called us “mongrels”, to the loser who called us cheaters (huh?), to the call-center loser who called us “bi polar racists”, to the fugly dude who called us illiterates, to the all-knowing guy who called us “shallow” *although we took it as a compliment, mind ya*…. WHERE ARE YOU NOW? Ha! I demand a retraction!

And most of all… to you who is reading this right now…who has nothing bad to say to hurt our feelings…and kept leaving comments to let us know we are loved...kop khun mak khrap. Thank you very much for sharing the dream of a united Southeast Asia with us.


Now go back to work!

Saying THANK YOU may not measure up for BISEAN's tall effort in bringing together the Southeast Asian youth in this superb blog. But that is all what I can do for the moment to express my appreciation. I wish BISEAN all the best and I share your grand dream for our grand region-paradise. From the Philippines, we greet you "Maligayang Kaarawan!"

Now, where's our invites for your birthday partay?

Oh wow! It's been a year eh? I kinda knew your blog anniversary was coming up since Misterhubs just celebrated his first blog anniversary recently too (a few weeks after I celebrated my first).

Congrats on your one year anniversary BISEAN. All the best to you and looking forward to what's next.

Happy anniversary!

haha, I've got to say this --- This is the only blog that I've read from the first to the most recent post! (well, I read it the other way around actually) And it's been only 2 days since I've chanced up on this blog after searching for SEA articles. hehe

Cheers to more entertaining posts!

Quentin X said...

Now that I have seen Bali, I think you would like Siargao better. Siargao does not have as much of the modcoms of Bali but it is much cleaner.

Nomadic Matt said...

If you get a chance, come drop a line over my way...
