General Updates

About time I'd clear my 2 months of backlogged life updates:


A very busy month hence the neglected blog. It had actually started back in September when our workshop saw a massive spike in accident claims. 

Somewhere in between we had a company training program where we got to experience some of Merc's latest high-powered AMG models:

Guess which of the three I got to drive :3

At the end of December came YDC 23, only my second youth camp since YDC 21 back in 2012. Despite the very short time frame we had to plan the camp we managed to pull it off spectacularly (albeit imperfectly).

Our A-Team :)



The same A-Team you see above gave me a belated birthday surprise in the form of a cake and a shirt that says:

I didnt become a blonde chick

Apart from that, another busy busy month especially with the Chinese New Year rush which only added to the stress


February (So far)

Ah yes, Chinese New Year.

Unfortunately not as joyous as I had hoped because some of my relatives had different plans this year, and some had to work while I enjoyed a one-week break. I left my hometown just this morning, and even after 5 years of traveling to and fro it still gets to me, especially after long stays.

Sitiawan is more than just a hometown where I grew up and went to school.
With my mum still staying there, it has become a sanctuary. In fact she is the only reason why I'd want to go back.
An escape from the hustle and bustle of the big city and all with it that clouds my brain.
A place where I can just let go and walk around shirtless in the front garden, breaking away from the vigorous working life.

Maybe its because each time I leave Sitiawan to carry on with life, it serves as a reminder that my time here is running out. The time will come I wont have anymore reasons to make the 3-4 hour drive to escape reality and seek refuge in my sanctuary. And that disturbs me still.
