We have entered March 2010. 60 days since New Year and still counting… it’s too fast. I am only half way consuming the Chivas bottle, I am not done with my celebrations yet.
But in reality, I had to face the truth. Holidays are over. I had to focus on my plan and put some serious effort. If not, I never get enough money to buy handbag(s) for my girlfriend
As you can see, I am not active in personal blogging anymore. I got more exciting projects to do – that is why I devote much of my time on those projects.
I would like to update ahbing.com at least 3 times a week, but my time is really limited. I still have 20+ pending Australia posts to blog… /sigh, that’s unlikely to happen. Unless I run out of topic to blog, then I’ll dig back the old posts to write.
Hah! I got sooooo many posts to write and I am not sure whether I should do it. Don’t care la… I just post whatever I can.
This is few posts combined into one, a summary of upcoming blog posts.
I am back
Settling back at my hometown, Kota Kinabalu, is not easy. To make myself feel like a “brand new start”, I made a few changes to my surroundings.
- Donate unused cloths (honest – I’m too big size now)
- Change wall colour
- Move my workspace into my room instead of living room
- Removed old stuffs from cupboard (love letters, high school notes and books)
- Removed like 10 pairs of my dad’s shoe
- Removed my mum’s cloths in my cupboard (it’s my personal cupboard now, /pfft!)
- Removed threadmill, cycle machine and massage chair. All not working.
Here’s my next plan
- Install new cupboard in my room, built in ones
- New cupboard in kitchen (mum wait hit 4D first)
- Remove even more things from my room!
- and the rest are tiny details which I’m too lazy to mention
My room + work space
..with lights turned on (afternoon)
My room is painted dark blue. To make it even darker, I installed a thick plastic curtain that blocks out 90% of sunlight and heat.
without lights (afternoon)
Dark colour room is awesome, I love it. Especially if you are night owl that stays up late and always sleep til afternoon.
I had to change the colour because this room is going to be my workspace and I need to have a brighter working area. Thus I repainted it into sky blue.
This is my current working area, same exact place where I’m typing this entry right now. Now the table is filled with notes, tidbits and gadgets.
I think it will be awesome if I remove the metal cupboard and replace with cupboard (with decks) to put the extra stuffs there. Such as wallets, watch, gadgets, nude women photos..
Temporary escape from reality
The first few days of my arrival, I cannot settle my emotions yet. “Is this the end of fun? I haven’t done anything yet! not even serious in study”.
Another thing that makes me reluctant to return to Malaysia is my family problem, which has negative impact on me. 每家都有難念的經 and I rate the seriousness of my family problem at 9/10 – taking risk tolls at emotions and family relationship. One of the reasons I need to come back.
The most important things that makes me feel uneasy is the sudden surge of illegal immigrants.
“Damn, what happened to my lovely town? Where’s are all the locals? Chinese? Malay? Ethnics? Feels like I am at Philippine instead of Malaysia” This is sad.
On the same weekend of my arrival, I told Chris the Sarawakian Samseng, “hey nga lin chai, I am going to explore Kuching tomorrow. Don’t feel like staying at home.. wanna go together?”
“I dare you”
“ngai diao, I buy tickets now!”
Then half day later, I am at Kuching already. This is my itinerary
- Kuching – 2 days 2 nights
- Sarikei – 1 day 1 night
- Sibu – 1 day
Wished I could continue the trip longer, but Chinese New Year is coming soon. I need to help mum do lots of CNY errands. Chris need to balik kampung also so our trip ended up only a few days. Made this decision over in few hours only.. nothing much we can do.
Here are some of my short trip photos (summary):
What I personally think of Kuching
- Food are ridiculously cheap – only realised Sabah’s food are 200% overpriced due to rise in tourism
- All pretty ladies are hiding at somewhere else. I don’t see any attractive ladies at all.
- Major Chinese, no illegal immigrants!
I’ll blog about my trip in details next time. Many funny shits to share with you.
I definitely felt a lot better after coming back from the trip. Maybe I need to travel more… who want to join me to Taiwan and Japan? only girls allowed – please send in your application form, interviews depending on the quality of your photo – thank you.
Chinese New Year Eve
Every year, I am obligated to return to my grandparent’s kampung to celebrate CNY, is the tradition for Chinese to return to 祖屋 to celebrate with elder relatives. This is my first time celebrating in KK in 25 years due to my family problem /sigh.
That doesn’t discourage me, this is a perfect chance to celebrate in KK for the first time in my life! I never thought this city can be so damnnnnnnnn lively! Fireworks everywhere, crowds flood the night markets and free-food everywhere haha.
Growing up, I always celebrated CNY in kampung. I spend most of the time watching Astro and eating prawn crackers. Time past 12 midnight and I get angpao! That’s how I thought CNY is supposed to be. But man, never thought CNY can really be THIS fun ^^;
Here’s some photos on CNY eve.
CNY eve is already this fun, can’t wait to show you the rest of the CNY celebration. Way more activities and more fun!
Tambunan with relatives
I have soooooooooo many cousins.
SOOOOOOOOOOOO many of them, until I can’t remember their name. Which is ridiculous.
You know why? My mum has 19 siblings. If each of them only had one child.. maybe the number is still normal. But try to multiply the number as time goes by. Especially after my oversea studies for 5 years…
“Whose son is this ah?” I keep asking. Hahahha.
So many cousins… impossible we watch same channel on Astro. Thus, open a table, take out a deck of cards – FULL TIME GAMBLE.
Even 14 years old also started to drink chivas. Life is good. Life is awesome.
Left hand hold cards, right hand hold cold beer. Gamble until morning. Continue gamble again when wake up with slight hangover. It’s like the biggest party in Sabah, once a year.
My uncle-in-law is teaching cousins how to tackle opponents in rugby. He is National Rugby coach and we got free lessons!
Come tackle me anytime, let me practice. I can’t tackle my cousins because difference in size. But I don’t want to tackle my uncle also.. I want to maintain my perfect bone-structure.
我的美人 eating competition. Winner gets ang pao. Once again, I cannot join the competition because of difference in size also /sigh.
That’s 5 posts in one single entry. Hope you enjoy reading this entry as much as I enjoy writing it ^^
