Balik Kampung

At this time I might already boarded a plane heading to the KK…or I might have landed in KK and somewhere in KK, hang out with friends...partying, chatting and drinking…

I can’t really tell precisely where I might be for the whole period of my annual leave (22nd Dec 2008 – 4th Jan 2009) I could be in KK, Ranau or Tambunan…earlier this year, I had planned to visit my old friends in Sandakan but due to some complication…I have to bury that plan and postponed to some other time….I haven’t been to Sandakan for over 6 years…the place where I grew up….the place where I learned to be a boy also a teenager…be it good or bad, it’s part of me you’re getting…..

The last time I went back to Sabah was in Jun 2007…which was a waste as I would considered it…I might be a selfish man at some point for not thinking of going back to Sabah although I have plenty of holidays..I might also be one of the guy that you would call, non-patriotic for not going back to Sabah to help our own people and beloved state to develop a better place for living…you call it…whatever you’d like to…I never really had nor having a real homesick feeling as most people would call it…of course I’m missing and worry about my parents and care about them…but thinking of pursuing the “thing” in life and making the best out of you…one must take certain different path and live to do the best out of it…surviving in other people’s territory, into the wild world…least I could do is, not leaving them behind if they require my help or perform my responsibility as we call it…

I’m thankful to have good parents...blessed by their prayers…by mean, God’s will…and blessed with good friends around me….heading back to Sabah to reunite with my family and relatives is always a good feeling…although deep down inside, I’m always worry that I couldn’t do much to ease their life...especially when I’m there observing the real thing with my own eyes…which usually makes me angry…still, thinking of the reality of life…I can’t do all and handle everything as I would wish and hope....

My first day in Sabah will be filled with parties…we have a plan for a small kind of reunion at one of a famous karaoke centre in KK…heading there once I arrive in KK later in the afternoon…afterwards, I’ll be joining my big bro to a BBQ party at one of his friend’s house in Putrajaya…several of his friends are my friends as well (childhood friends in Ranau before we moved to Sandakan) few hours ago I was amused (smiling) by both of my siblings when they were asking who’s going to fetch me at the airport…then 2 of my friends were asking the same question followed by their offer to fetch me…I rarely tell my friends or family if I'm coming back...having said that, I have not felt this kind of feeling for quite a time…another friend was jokingly asking me to jalan-jalan at Centre Point later in the evening (funny and cute because she will be there with her friends…it’s a perfect "coincident" meeting each other..hehe..) it seems that lots of people are looking forward to see me…thanks and very much appreciated…unfortunately I had already plan for a friend to fetch me…F.Y.I… me and Jew will be boarding the same plane from Penang…Fabian who had recently moved to Sabah couple of months ago is fetching us then proceed according to plan (lunch then Karaoke-drink)…usually, I will be the one who will contact and remind them that I will be arriving at this and that time then request their favour to fetch me at the airport....

"Hi wel..[smile]" if you recognize me k...then "Sudah makan?"..I'm sure I will reply "Hi..belum..kau mau belanja?[smile]" hehe...

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2009! Had a great holiday chaps!
