I Am Home!

It feels good to be back in Malaysia again but it is so HUMID here!!! The sky was overcast when we left Hino. It drizzled just before the plane took off. Although the flight from Narita was delayed by thirty minutes, we arrived at KLIA as scheduled at 8.25pm. I caught the KLIA Express to Sentral where Wuan was waiting for me. The moment I got out from Sentral, my skin began to get sticky icky. It is getting to be very uncomfortable. I am going to need a few days to get acclimatized to this weather. Still, it feels good to be back home again. Yes, I am back, for a while anyway.

  1. Luckily the weather in tokyo isnt really that freezing cold yet. A friend of mine came back from mongolia and cant tolerate with the sudden temperature change in malaysia,and hence,was hospitalized. Happy CNY !

    We were lucky. We were repeatedly reminded to keep ourselves warm. Happy CNY!

  7. Dear Peter
    I happened to come across your side when surfing the cyber net for practically aimlessly just for something interesting to pop up. It takes a brave person with commitment and determination like yourself to share your life history with strangers. I admire your courage and I am all for people to seek self-independent and diversity. So carry on with your own agenda and may you achieve a higher level of independence.
    All the best

    Thank you for your kind words. All this is only possible with God and my friends who have generously supported me in this endeavour.
