Today is a special day. No, it’s not my birthday.

It’s 20102010

20th October 2010. A Double Match.

It happens only once in a lifetime! You’ll never get such a number again. So I guess I would like to wish everyone a wonderful day!

If you feel a sense of deja vu reading this, that's because I posted a similar post with the exact same wordings (except for the numbers) last year. Read it here.

Last year, the special day was on 20th September. That gave us 20092009.

So next year it will be 20th November which gives us 20112011.

While everyone was obsessed with the number 101010 on the 10th October 2010, I am more attracted to this date 20102010. I wonder what is so special with 101010 - it was a bleak day for Malaysians as it was the day of the horrible accident involving a bus and several other vehicles on the North-South Expressway near Melaka, killing 13 people in the process!

Besides, 101010 will occur again on the 10th October 2110, which is 100 years later. Whereas 20102010 will never ever occur again anytime in the future!

Since we are talking about dates and numbers here, let me dwell on this topic today.

First, about the year 2012. It's such a famous year, made famous by the movie 2012 that it is the year that the world will finally come to an end. Do you believe 2012 is doomsday year? Personally, I don't.

You see, dinosaurs have ruled the earth close to 165 million years, but humans only existed since 7 million years ago. Is it time for humans to be wiped out? I don't think so. Unless we got the number of years wrong, of course : )

Maybe humans are actually aliens and we have existed billions of years ago and were living on a different planet? Who knows?

Second, the year 2020. Will we Malaysians achieve Vision 2020?
I really have my doubts! But then again, never say never!

So there are plans for a 100-storey tower to be built and completed by 2020? I am not going to go into a debate whether this tower is feasible or not. All I can say is if you want to build a tower, please build a 100-storey rotating tower like the one in Dubai!!

It'll be cool to see a landmark building changing shape every hour!!

Thirdly, some important dates at least for me!! Do take note if you want to!

Nov 2nd 2010 - The launching of Mariah Carey's new Christmas album! Can't wait!!

Dec 1st 2010 - My birthday. You're welcome to give me a birthday present! Haha!

Feb 1st 2011 - Federal Territory Day. Nightmare day in PJ as KL-lites jam up PJ!

Feb 3rd 2011 - Chinese New Year. Best time to make easy money collecting angpows!!! Ka-ching!!

Feb 4th 2011 - The day where your feng shui changes so be sure to prepare for it!

Mar 11th 2011 - My Very First Blog's 3rd anniversary!! Let's celebrate!!!

Mar 12th 2011 - The official launch of iPhone5! Yippee!! *I'm kidding : D

April 30th 2011 - Last day to submit your personal income tax if you are an employee. Don't procrastinate!

May 1st 2011 - Labour Day. They should turn this into Labour Week! You know, holiday for one week? LOL!

Aug 13th 2011 - Hungry Ghost festival. Stay home at night!

Aug 30th 2011 - Selamat Hari Raya!! Best time to drive KL roads!

Sept 12th 2011 - Mooncake Festival. Make sure you don't miss the durian mooncakes!

Oct 8th 2011 - International Panda Day! *I'm kidding again! Haha!

Nov 11th 2011 - The day with the most number 1s! 11.11.11.

Lastly, how old would you be after your birthday in 2011? Well, here are the age of some Hollywood stars on their birthdays in 2011 if you are curious to know!

  29. [SK] said...

    very true, it only happen one time and that's it.. unlike 101010 which is every 100 years..

    This sure drives home a message that time and tide waits for no man. What is lost in time can never be regained.

    The world may not come to an end in 2012 but we all know that the earth is dying by way of more natural disasters and destruction of the environment which humans are contributing to it.

    October 20, 2010 at 2:32 PM
  33. HappySurfer said...

    Do we really need that 100-storey tower? It won't be the tallest in the world afterall.

    October 20, 2010 at 2:36 PM
  34. HappySurfer said...

    Ooh, David Duchovny turning 50? Somehow I always see him as the young man in that tv series - whose title escapes me right now which goes to show that it's quite sometime ago. LOL!

    Chalize Theron seems ageless. She's beautiful.

    Keanu Reeves, I like.

    Sigourney Weaver, 62? Wow! Just look at her in Ghostbusters which Astro rescreened it last month, I think.

    Christina Aguilera, so sad, she's getting a divorce..

    Jude Law, love his accent.

    Lindsay Lohan, such a waste of talent.

    Justin Bieber, certainly not a fan of his hairdo..

    Adam Lambert, still think he should have won that contest. Love him!

    Milla Jovovich, love her in Fifth Element. Get the DVD if you haven't seen it.

    Taylor Lautner, one of the richest teenage stars.

    October 20, 2010 at 2:47 PM
  35. HappySurfer said...

    A great post, Foong. Some research.

    Happy 20102010! Trust a fengshui practitioner to be more inclined to the significance of numbers.

    Born on the first of the month? hmmm...

    October 20, 2010 at 2:50 PM
  36. kyh said...

    Based on the increasing reports of big-scale natural disasters around the world in recent years, the 2012 could be true. :D

    I've read an investigation on natural disasters for the past century up to now, the frequency of large-scale destructive natural disasters practically increase by several folds in these 2 decades. Food for thought.
