Oh God, I miss the Internet so much. I miss my blog so much. Did you know I had the suckiest weekend ever? It was like the most boring weekend I’ve ever had. So much so that I was beginning to think that I’m going to turn crazy soon.
Was in Merlimau, Melaka for the weekend. It was a last minute plan. Mummy wanted Iris to visit grandpa before she goes back to the UK and so I had to tag along, had to cancel a plan to meet up with a friend who flew to KL from Australia. She has already “booked” me months ago and now I told I won’t be able to meet her a few days shy from the day we are supposed to meet. Felt really bad but I would feel even worse if I didn’t get my butt to Melaka because my mum just posed me with one question which just left me with no chance to overwrite her decision. “Who is more important? You go and think la!”
I would say both but yea..maybe at this point of time, my grandpa. He doesn’t recognise me. Sometimes he does but when my sister and I switched places at the dinner table, he’ll get mixed up and then I’m just a stranger. He doesn’t remember me. Maybe it has got to do with my short hair. Maybe I haven’t been visiting him often. Maybe I’m forgettable.
Grandpa is cute in his own ways. He’s a kid all over again. The quiet kind and a shy one at times. Like suddenly, he’ll say ARIGATO for no reason and then he’ll laugh and we will laugh. He’s in his room most of the time.
The only time I went out was to Jonker Street on Saturday night. I love Jonker Street but I didn’t have the chance to really “walk” the street because Mum only went to a specific shop and then said we’re done. Iris and I, we wanted to explore and do some window shopping but *sigh*.
We were dependent on my cousin for transport so there wasn’t really much I can do. I spent the whole Sunday in front of the telly. Starworld was showing Desperate Housewives Season 3 marathon so Iris and I entertained ourselves by watching that practically the whole afternoon until I felt like vomiting.
Again, because we had to rely for transportation back to KL, cousin was driving so I only reached KL at 12 midnight due to traffic jam along the KL-Seremban highway because of a car accident and the rain.
When I reached home, it felt like heaven and I found my sanity again because while I was in grandpa’s house, I sort of felt like I lost the purpose of life because I have cousins who looked to me, they have no purpose of life. Well, their purpose is kinda weird and it is hard for me to digest and I feel like I live in a problematic environment and it just affects me. The only reason why we always go back there is because of my grandpa.
Tiring day at work. Following 2 days will be tiring as well. I’m supposed to pack tonight because I’m flying close to midnight on Wednesday to somewhere nice! But I must write at least one entry after a few days, else I tak boleh tidur. I will be working on Wednesday as well even though a normal person would maybe take a day off so that it wouldn’t be so tiring. Well, due to the project’s tight time line, I just don’t have the heart to just take more days off.
I tell you, this is a penyakit because there would be one day, I’ll be thinking back of why I worked so hard when I should just enjoy when I should, just that few days, and then get back to reality again. Another reason is that I’m still new and under probation, I mean I should smile they are even letting me go on leave. But then they had to let me go too even if they didn’t allow me to because I just had to take some days off. OK, before I start talking nonsense..I’ll put this topic to rest.
Writer will be off to Japan. This might be a once in a lifetime trip to Japan. One of my dream destinations. The best part is I do not have to pay for it. That’s why it’s good to be Daddy’s girl. It’s our annual family trip. Pappy would always make sure we go somewhere every year and I’m just glad Iris is travelling with us.
We, the sisters, have already pledge to make time for each other every year to travel once she gets a job in UK. Just the two of us. When you grow older, you have fewer friends. As in fewer friends that really stick with you through thick and thin. Some friends that are close to you, will be staying far away and then you got to find new friends that stay nearer to you. Whenever I see a friend, I will grab him/her and try not to lose sight of them.
I now have friends in the office that I go to the toilet with. We actually set a time to go to the toilet together. This is also a penyakit but a good one I suppose. Should they plan to leave the company, I’m going to be back to zero. So God, please make them stay.
I really need to go now. If I don’t have the time to write tomorrow, wait till I come back from my holiday alright?
Home is where the sanity is!
Have a wonderful trip! 😀
