2007 Memories

January 1st, 2008 · 9 Surrendered

Got back from IVOQ launch. So many photos to process and so many information to share with you.

Sharon tagged me with this. I’m ignoring the rules. I’m not going to tag anybody. I was thinking of doing this later as an auto-publish post when I’m in KL but the content is more suitable for today, 1.1.2008. So I’ll post it today to share with you my 2007 memories while I’m trying to get the photos and report of the launching of IVOQ out.
