We knew it's gonna be a really bad two weeks with busy work schedule or uni works. Took a little breather in between and I am always grateful for those nice meals that I was still able to have despite of the crazy schedule (always make time for food yes yes).
Now we are almost at the end of March, marching into week 4 of uni. If you asked me what have I done in uni so far, I couldn't answer properly cuz I doesn't have a clear mind about what i am doing now. It is just... following the schedule on Gantt Chart. All i gotta do is keep going cuz i don't have spare time to waste. I gotta say I love it, I love to be busy loving my life.
I miss Malaysia a lot, it has been two months since I got back but yes, I haven't been missing Malaysia so much ever since I left 6 years ago. yet another normal trip back to Malaysia but probably one of the best and memorable one.
My trip back to Malaysia took 37 hours, not even kidding, flight was delayed for 8 hours and with all the transit hours, it took me freaking 37 hours to get to my lovely bed in Miri. I felt so silly walking dead at KLIA hoping I can teleport myself back to Miri while I was waiting for the last flight.
It was definitely a bitter sweet beginning of my trip, but thanks to everyone out there who kept me company during midnight hours while I was so paranoid/terrified/speechless in Sydney - Oh, the flight delay, the blackout and the sleepless night before 9 hours flight.
I didnt have a copy of the photos i took during that two days before I flew to Taiwan. Silly me had my phone at the back pocket of my pants and it must be gravity that pulled it into the toilet bowl while I turned to close toilet door. Oh that must be a perfect turn.
My friends thought it was a prank when I informed them to contact me through Facebook. With no exception they laughed it off and said 'oh please Clarie it's not April yet'.
So that was before the flight to Taiwan, I was using ASUS phone throughout the whole trip. Good camera quality i gotta say :)
We didnt get to the deck cuz it was slippery due to weather condition :(
Next time, next time i am gonna conquer you.
Very authentic Taiwanese breakfast, I like the huge rice ball! The queue was crazy, it took us 30 minutes to get our food.
Hey, it was election day when we were there :P
We stopped by KK for 2 days. The plan was to enjoy the seafood but we were too exhausted from the 10 days trip in Taiwan! We ended up having a bucket of KFC. hurhur no regrets.
They were complaining about me cuz I kept asking for western food and coffee when I was in Miri. Aiya, I'm sorry.
Few days later I went to Kuala Lumpur (secretly), went cafe hopping (of course) but got so disappointed that we did not even want to continue to hop. And that makes us miss Aussie coffee, those 'sok-k' days.
Old friends are gold. It was a really quick 60 minutes meet up! Thank you for making it all the way to meet me up for a quick catch up, I really miss those stupid old times in secondary school. Someone's still being sarcastic as always, never changed, but that's what he is meant to be (take this as a compliment if you're reading this! :P)
The day I had to leave KL, I had to make friend with these cute little dogs cuz my friend was having a hard time sleeping (hangover). I love dogs since then. :D
Shabbies they are
Shabbies they are
(It's okay if you don't get it, it's an inside joke)
So I went to KL for the second time, it was so spontaneous cuz i bought the ticket 18 hours before i left. So little time yet so many to pack. It was a sleepless night but it was worth it! Also, it was supposed to be a surprise to people but it turned out to be not that surprising at all. But we did have some great times before I came back, that is all it counts. Thanks to people who drove me back and forth from the airport and around KL (if you guys are reading this!); I am truly truly blessed with all of you who stuffed me with all those good food and sleepless nights..
3 weeks in Malaysia, not long, but it is indeed a turning point in my life; It was the month that I was open to change and embrace the changes; great time well spent with awesome friends and family relatives, that I learnt to let go of what I can't control and just go with the flow; I started emotionally but ended up with amazing experiences that God has put me through; trying out new things with new people, slowing getting a hold of what I really want and thanks to people who make me realise: to get what you deserve you gotta let go what is holding you back.
To conclude, January is the month of discovery and the month that I start shifting my focus and making new priorities.
Thanks people for journeying with me through a crazy month! It could not be better without the presence of all of you!
See you guys in 4 months!
