Greetings. Sorry I’ve been away for three weeks. Flying back to Melbourne tomorrow, and I don’t really wanna be away from home. I don’t think I can ever get used to bidding the usual goodbyes at the airport, although I should have gotten used to it by now. I must say that putting the idea of taking a summer class was a good decision. I’ve had an amazing Chinese New Year celebration, spent heaps of time with my family and I needed this. So much has happened, and I think its best for me to just drop it like a bomb. I’ve given myself enough excuses/reasons to hold it in, beat around the bush and end up getting lost it in, over and over again. I’ve learned that life is not a race.
I like circumstances and uncertainties. Maybe the past two years has caused me to take life a little more seriously. Maybe it is time to stop dealing my cards and just fold. I want a fresh start. I want a change. And I will make sure that happens. I’ve also learned that sometimes our upbringing affects our behavior and the way we expect the ‘world’ to be. I’ve accepted the fact that the rich will always have the egoistic boost that they’ve done it right and I really don’t think humility stops at just being humble financially. Personality and character speaks way louder than the way we use/misuse money. I’m angry, because I realized that sometimes money has a way of blinding people from appreciating other values and differences. Different, isn’t always a bad thing. I’ve had a good week of heart to heart talk with my mum, and it has cleared up quite a lot of doubts. I’m just gonna steer on forward, bearing in mind that even I’ll always have two people in my life to love me unconditionally, and that alone, is suffice.
On a happier note, things are starting to fall into place. I wish at times that I don’t have to be 4000 miles away from home. Sometimes, things happen when you least expect it. Maybe when you start to let go, to release, to unleash; that is when you’ll make room for others to fill in. This applies to every aspect of my life. I love the idea that love has a way to put a smile on frowning faces. Turn the frown upside down. No more crying in the rain, wishing that someone out there feels your pain. Note to self, be more positive.
A regular day at home with Brownthepom.
“I heard you’re leaving me on Monday..why’d you have to go?”
“I’ve always been a good boy. I don’t bite. I smile even to strangers. I bark and run in circles before pooping, like a ceremonial run. Most importantly, I love my family.”
My dog’s fav snack, whole meal bread, preferably hardened.

Found some write ups about the event, forgot to snap a photo of the English write up on the Star.
Pretty cousin, Emily.
TRX suspension training to finish up my circuit. This helps to build a rock solid core, utilizing your own body weight, which increases muscle endurance. Simply adjust your body position to add/decrease resistance. It’s harder than it looks!
New charm for Valentines.

Anyway, this will be my last post in Malaysia. I will be actively blogging again, and I’m glad that I have such supportive people in my life at the moment. I will never take any of it for granted and may this year ahead be a happier one. I’ve found a perfect excuse for my absence. There’s no need to update anyone in Malaysia because I’ve been home the whole time!!!
I’m really excited and worried at the same time about this upcoming semester which begins next week. I know I’m gonna have to do really well, and I do intend to spend more time working out since I do foresee a whole lot more time alone this semester. Turn any negative situation into a positive one today. If it’s ugly and you dislike what you’re reading, flip on over to the next page. :)
