It’s Been 6 Months…

September 1st, 2013 · 4 Surrendered

It’s been 6 months since I’m back home in Kuching. Nothing much exciting happening. All plans didn’t work out as it should. Frankly, still struggling to cope with the life back here after leaving everything behind for almost 2 years to experience the short-live Australian dream of mine.

Last year this day, it was a very lovely day, bright blue sky, spring had arrived in Adelaide. My then “other half” organized a surprise advance birthday party for me to welcome my 30th birthday. Everything was great, everything just fell into places, thinking that finally all my dreams had came true. Was the happiest girl on earth.

Apart from that, September last year was the month I sat for my final exam, thinking that I would fail the course but I passed! Got better grade than expected. It marked the end of my life as a postgrad student in UniSA. Also, I got to spend time with my then “other half” and his family. It was a very exciting and happy month I must say. Was on cloud 9 almost everyday.

I remember back in 2011, when I first celebrated my birthday in Adelaide, my last birthday of my 20’s, it was horrible! Who knows? My last birthday in Adelaide, the beginning of my 30’s was a total opposite of 2011. Hoping that for the next few years, I’ll be celebrating more of my birthdays in Adelaide with that special someone but apparently, it’s not the case. I did not make a wish before blowing the candle, I should have! Who would expect things just took a whole new turn, the dream was shattered and heart was broken about 2 months later. What a blow! I’m now back here, back to square one, going to celebrate my birthday in Kuching in few days time as how it used to be before going to Australia.

Maybe things happened for a reason. I’ll just take one day as it is while struggling to reestablish myself back here. Hopefully I can make a come back to the blogging scene in Malaysia or at least in Kuching. It’s not easy after going almost-missing for more than 2 years. Everything has changed, it’s a very different ball game now in this industry.

WOW! I’m welcoming September with such an emo post. Anyway, that’s all I can say for now. I will be heading to KL for a weekend in few days time for a short family trip. Hopefully September this year will be an awesome month, as awesome as it was last year even though it seems far fetch.

Hopefully all of you will have a blast welcoming September, soon it will be 2014. My usual saying, time flies… Take care!

    William, the only thing I’m thankful of is with my family. Oh yes… Spring is finally here! However, for Kuching, it’s lots of rain now.

Surrender Here!
