My Highs & Lows in 2009

Looking back in 2009, I had my share of hits and misses, my highs and lows.  Let me share to you, my faithful readers, a glimpse of my life in 2009.  And with this post, I am introducing Ganda Ever Monthly Contest.  Exciting Freebies will be given to monthly winners.

For this month, our contest is fairly simple.  If you’ve been part of my life vis-a-vis what I wrote here, do drop a comment.  The best five (5) commentators will earn a free tuna festival 2009 tee-shirt. Your comment shall mention which of my Highs and Lows have you become part of and in not less than 20 words, describe how this is so.  Watch out for more exciting Ganda Ever contests in the coming months!
