The end and a new beginning

One more day and we will step into another year. Wow. 2009 had been a wonderful year. I found a lot of new friends, and I gained a whole lot of new experiences. It has been a truly amazing year for me and I hope it is the same for all of you. Hopefully 2010 will be bring more joy and wonderful things to us.

Guess what? I am a random winner of the domain competition hosted by Kya @ bubble.nu. I didn’t win the big prize (a .nu domain) though, but a TLD is really good enough for me. Wow, it was indeed a pleasant surprise! But I don’t know yet what domain name extension I want to get, I don’t even know what name I want to give and I don’t even have an idea what to use the domain for. o_O Hopefully an inspiration will come to me soon.

I’ve upgraded the BellaBuzz Ask and Answer to the latest version (BellaBuzz V2). The most prominent feature that can be seen in the new version is the optional field for name. Users can now leave their names if they wish. I’ve also written a tutorial on how to upgrade the script without losing the answered questions in the existing version.

I’m picking up Sudoku and Rubik’s Cube again after a few months. I find puzzles to be mentally challenging and that’s what makes them really interesting.

I’m selling my new domain mystifique.com. I bought it from Namecheap and it has never been used before. So if you are interested in buying it off me, just contact me using the contact form or you can just email me directly.

  1. 2009’s definitely been an interesting for me as well. and you’re right, i do love playing professor layton. it’s awesome! the puzzles in the game are so hard sometimes, but it really makes you think (or realize how stupid you feel) after having cheat on it and come to find out that finding the solution wasn’t all that hard :heh:

    1. *an interesting one .. (whoops!)

  2. well :heh:

    i do my homework last minute (ALL THE TIME!!!) :kiss:

    i hope you can advise me so i will be more inspired to do homework on time :happy: :happy:

    too much asking ya?? ๐Ÿ˜ฅ ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

  3. congrats on your random win! lol

    i love brain teasers and puzzles too…. we must be dorks.

  4. This year’s passing and a new year comes… and it’s like that every year, and we grow older and mature with experiences of life that we collect. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s amazing, isn’t it?
    Congratulations on winning the TLD domain! Just as a good as a .nu, and less expensive. .Nu are really expensive! Could buy 4-5 TLDs with the price of 1 .nu. LOL. I love mistifique.com but I don’t have money to buy it right now.
    I should try an Ask & Answer script too, but I fear it might not be allowed by my host, so I got to check on that. And I love puzzles too, but I’m never too patient to finish them.

    1. Had 2009 been a satisfying year for you?
    – Yeah, for a special *love* reason too, ehehe.
    2. What do you like best about 2009?
    – Meeting a certain someone *love*, new friends, the Serany sisters, and most of all, the fact I grew up into a more self-conscious being.

  5. Congratulations on winning~ ๐Ÿ˜€ Hmmm, why is .nu more expensive than say, .com or .net or .info? Sorry if this seems like a silly question, I’m really not sure. x.x

    1. Somewhat! In some ways it has, in other ways – most definitely not. Hopefully 2010 brings me what 2009 could not accomplish.

    2. Graduated high school. ๐Ÿ™‚ And at the age of 18, I finally got my very own room. ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. Congratz on winning a free domain hun!!! I am so happy for you!!!! Why not do a photoblog on your new domain? And .NU’s are awesome domain extensions.

    I would seriously buy that domain from you but A) am broke and B) I got sixteen other domains which I am not even using which are meant for personal domains…so wouldn’t make sense buy another one and add to the collection of unused domains. Am goin to try and sell them via my blog.

    I am not a fan of the Ask & Answer script but curiousity is startin to nip at me so am thinking of maybe adding it to my blog to see what it is all bout…who knows?! I may become a fan of it!

    Anyways, have a good one sweetz!

  7. Aww. I know how you feel. I’m always feeling weird when I write about my parents in my blogs. I rarely blog about them, especially when I’m angry because I don’t like to give people that impression.

    And they definitely are the ones who brought us here. Maybe not for those who are adopted but they really are our parents. I love my mum as well, even though I totally disagree with some things she does or says. I haven’t been the greatest daughter, I’ll have to admit.

    I can live without my phone, but I cannot live without the computer. I just need some way of talking to my friends! I have a crappy phone so there isn’t a real reason to like it. ๐Ÿ˜›

    I felt bad sneaking on the computer and getting my phone but I had to tell my friends somehow.

    That’s you alright. I understand and respect that. What was really annoying was in high school for me. My friends’ parents were all very nice and let them have so much freedom. I wasn’t allowed out when they were and some people were really rude about it and told me to rebel against my parents. I have sometimes but I found them really rude.

    My best friend’s parents are the same. She isn’t allowed places sometimes. I’m glad I have her because we understand each other that way.

    It is a free world and people should be more grateful. It’s sad to have all this discrimination around. Thankfully a lot of bad pieces in the past are well history to us.

    People still have the issue of preserving things digitally like if a computer system crashes down or something. XD Apparently if we were in the stone age, carving into stone would last so much longer haha. ๐Ÿ˜›

    That’s a good thing it’s not your site being down – downtime can get annoying.

    Oooooh, congratulations on winning a domain from Kya’s competition! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I don’t think I won anything. ๐Ÿ˜› I have won in her other random giveaways though! I found out Senyth won; I talk to her a lot so I’m pretty happy that she won!

    I might check out that tutorial of yours. I am on version one of Bellabuzz. But I don’t know if I really need that feature with the names. xD I don’t really like my ask/answer page… some people seem to ask for help through there. It’s a little annoying. D;

    My brother is very good at Sudoku but he is soooo good at solving a Rubik’s cube. He can solve one in 57 seconds. I am soooo jealous. D;

    Mystifique is a nice name. I would buy it if I could think of something to use it for… maybe… you know my domain addiction. XD

    1. Had 2009 been a satisfying year for you?
    It’s been quite good overall. A lot of downs but it’s been a good year.
    2. What do you like best about 2009?
    I’m not sure, but I finished my first year of university which is a relief. XD And an accomplishment!

  8. Hey Kitty, sorry for being such a late commenter :phew:

    Yes I agree. It’s 31st today, and such a happy and sad day. 2009 has brought me a lot of happy memories which I really can’t bear to leave, but it’s within my control. I got two awards in this year (my record!), and also many new friends. I got so friendly with Ke Wei just in this year, and I started domains in this year too. Can’t believe, second anniversary with my domain is coming soon.. :whistle:

    Congratulations uh! Yeah, even though the big prize wasn’t given to you, but at least you got a TLD domain. Wow! So, what are you deciding to call it? As for the hosting, don’t worry. I can give you a Doodlie package, the best of the Standard ones. Why? Because you won the prize in Everlast Trivia Quiz on Twitter. ;p

    Cool! I’m gonna read the tutorial later, it could be really useful to me ๐Ÿ˜€ Your tutorials are always fabulous, haha. :happy: So, how are you? Doing good, I guess.

    I love Sudoku, but I always fail to fix Rubix Cubes. My father and my brothers are fab at it. They have a 3×3, 4×4 and 5×5 cube. Wow! They bought it all from Toy’ R’ Us. LOL! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    The domain name is cool, but I’m not a fan of .com domains, besides yours. I always prefer .net, .org and .info. If I liked .com domains, I will for sure buy it from you, definitely. ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Had 2009 been a satisfying year for you?
    Definitely. 2009 brought me thousands of happy memories, it is one of the best years I had.
    2. What do you like best about 2009?
    I got my own domain, and nobody gave it to me, I bought it! That is the full thing of why I treasure my domain so much. I am so renewing it next year ๐Ÿ˜€

    P.S. Is HTML allowed here? I prefer styling to see the answer much clearer. Hope it works, anyway!

    Have a happy New Year! I’m going to Downtown East for a countdown party later, see you late at night!

  9. 1. Had 2009 been a satisfying year for you?
    No, not really.

    2. What do you like best about 2009?
    Believe it or not, David.

    I open my new site tomorrow. Yay. I really hope 2010 is a better year for not only myself but everyone else. :heart:

    I’ve added you as an affliate. :beadyeyed:

  10. Hi Kitty. Sorry for late replying, i was really tired, but i received your comment via email. Haha! >_<

    Oh I see. That's great then! I hope you think of a good domain name, it would be definitely regretting if you chose a wrong one. ๐Ÿ™ Anyway, about hosting, that's okay. It's a RULE. How can I bear to break a rule? LOL! ;p

    Yeah, I'm doing good too. I really hope Chibiholic will quickly come back. I loved it tons. I hope you code it ASAP! Wow. A custom built script. Cool! I can't wait to see it… Oh well, Dorine Pride, be patient! :oh:

    I don't have the 2×2 one. We couldn't find it at Toy R' Us. Haha. I wonder why, is it so popular, Kitty, that we couldn't find it? LOL. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Well, i can do it with you at night if i am allowed to bring my laptop along to Downtown East ๐Ÿ˜› It should be fun. But nah, I'm not allowed. o_O

    Yeah it's cute I love it very much ๐Ÿ˜› Happy New Year again!

  11. Aw, that’s too bad you don’t celebrate Christmas there, Christmas is fun. But decorating a Christmas tree sure brings the Christmas spirit to your home!

    I clothes and money and a few other stuff. I told them to just give me money because I’m saving up so I can buy the laptop I wanted. But now, New Year’s over, and my money’s not even enough to buy a laptop. ๐Ÿ™

    Oh, yeah servers are expensive. I’ve heard that Olivia is a really great host. I wish I could apply there, because I never want to experience a single downtime, but I can’t make my own layouts and Georgie is a nice host.

    I saw your name in the “Friend Suggestions,” but I ‘m not sure if it was you. I’m liking Twitter better though. Even if there is nothing else to do than tweet, I still love it.
    LOL, I deleted mine.

    Anyways, Happy New Year! I have a gift for you at my site. 2009 wasn’t the best, but I’m also happy last ’09 because I got better at this site thing! Making pixels, writing articles and all of those stuff. Yes, I sure hope 2010 will be loads better. The start of another decade.

    Wow, congratulations! It’s not that bad that you only got a TLD, because TLDs are as awesome as a .nu domain! I do hope inspiration will come to you. Maybe a plog, fanlisting, hosting site or a resource site? ๐Ÿ˜€

    Me too, but not that much anymore. Ever since I made SW, I was too busy for anything else, and I hate it. I feel like I’m not a normal kid anymore… But I want to be! Anyways, I honestly don’t understand how to “play” Sudoku. But I do know how to use the Rubik’s Cube. It’s really fun once you get used to it, right?

    1. Had 2009 been a satisfying year for you?
    Not really, so many typhoons hit our country, then there was a massacre, then one volcano is about to erupt. BTW, I’m from the Philippines.
    2. What do you like best about 2009?
    I got to meet lots of new friends, and I got pixelling, and I know how to host already, and I won a domain! (But too bad I can only have it for 2 years. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ I can’t afford to pay for the third year.)

  12. No worries, I knew that already but thanks for reminding me again. ๐Ÿ˜€ Do you have any idea why Georgina’s is 0? I’m still pondering over it ๐Ÿ™

    Happy New Year! And yeah, it is finally 2010 and it’s already 7:53 PM here!

    Agreed. Well, usually I just mix up funny little words together to form a name but Doodlerine was just thought up of a sudden. This time, you can mix two things that you don’t like into a word, and who knows, it might make an awfully good combination.

    Well, I have Doodlerine.info, Everlast.tk, and my children’s sites. They all have their own purpose. I’m also giving away a last two reseller accounts!

    Okay sure! I’ll tell my brothers then! Thanks!

  13. Happy 2010!!! :heart:

  14. Gel

    1. Had 2009 been a satisfying year for you?
    It was alright. Too many tragedies and disasters happening in our country, though : Hope this year will be a better year for all of us!
    2. What do you like best about 2009?
    New love, new life ๐Ÿ™‚ Everything’s changing for the better!

    2009 just flew past us. It’s just super fast! Hehe. I never really liked Rubik’s cube. It’s a bid confusing for me sometimes. Sudoku’s fun though, but too much of it can give me a headache haha.

    Happy new year and have fun in 2010! ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep safe!

  15. Haha we are all getting older. ๐Ÿ™‚ I guess it’s just not a big deal, it’s just another day, so people don’t really see the point. The different timezones are annoying. D;

    I like fireworks but the noise is always deafening or annoying. I guess that’s part of it though; it would be weird if fireworks were silent. ๐Ÿ˜›

    I didn’t really have a resolution in 2009… if I did, I don’t remember it. XD I guess it’s just a little thing to push us forward and welcome the new year and make us give it a try. I guess people feel like doing something monumental just because it’s new year. XD

    Aww that’s amazing. I’m glad you enjoyed decorating the Christmas tree. ^_^ Why was it your first time though? I’m curious. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you! It’s going well so far and so many people are entering, haha.

    I’m going to give it a go – if I can keep up not fighting or arguing with my parents, that would be great.

    LOL totally. Imagine actually having that big room with stone carvings. :O

    You’re welcome! Yeah, in those sorts of competitions when everyone is competing and there are so many people I guess you can only depend on luck.

    Ohhh I see. I didn’t really get bothered with spam on BellaBuzz. I just hate people asking me annoying questions, LOL.

    I hope it finds a good owner! ๐Ÿ˜€

  16. Gagagaga Happy New Year Kitty-chan~~~ :whistle:

    OMG ur so lucky to win the domain OMG OMG OMG.. ๐Ÿ˜€ I would love to buy the domain from you but I have no means of paying it though, unless ur here in JB and I can give it to you by hand =) haih~

    So for your questions:
    1. Had 2009 been a satisfying year for you?
    Not really. I was in my last semester and it has been pain. My boyfriend started going overseas for his doctoral degree and I can’t see him THAT much anymore, unless he gets back on semester break and also MJ died. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ I <3 his music.

    2. What do you like best about 2009?
    I @$%**%## graduated! Bwahahahaha

    BTW, I followed your twitter! ;p

  17. I find it so strange that everyone so domain crazy as of late! A few years ago, it was rare to have even a single domain if you were just a blogger … But now everyone seems to have at LEAST two! :kiss: It’s such a turnaround, bwahaha. ;p

    Hope 2010 is as good to you as 2009 was! ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. One more thing. In my opinion that there are numerous travel insurance web sites of reliable companies that allow you to enter your vacation details and acquire you the insurance quotes. You can also purchase the actual international travel cover policy on the web by using your own credit card. All you should do is always to enter your own travel information and you can be aware of the plans side-by-side. Just find the system that suits your allowance and needs after which it use your bank credit card to buy it. Travel insurance on the web is a good way to begin looking for a dependable company regarding international travel cover. Thanks for expressing your ideas.
