St Anne`s feast day

*I`ve lost my enthusiasm to write. This entry is more of a simple note of event that happen rather than a blog post. Its also about time that readers stop coming here since I really doubt there`ll be anything worth reading anymore.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

St Anne`s feast was one of the few things I look forward to since I was here 2 weeks ago. For one, there will be the crowd that was gathered there, and hence an opportunity to meet different group of people. Secondly, my grandmother will be visiting as well.

Though when the day arrived, it wasn`t really as exciting. I pretended to be sick and took a day off. I had dim sum for breakfast with my grandmother, and joined her and her tour group for the rest of the day till mass starts at 8.30 pm.

I didn`t took many pictures. It was too crowded and the was too dark. The is probably one of the nicest churches around (in terms of architecture) Perhaps one day, I`ll take its propor picture during the day.
There was a queue everywhere you go. A queue to the old church to offer your candles. A queue to the shrine. Even a queue to the toilet.

In the end, it was very tiring, and I got to say I didn`t really enjoy very much of the day. But then again, I didn`t really enjoy anything much for the past couple of months. It does seems something is lacking and there`s a void of contentment every night before I go to bed.

That said, this is perhaps, the closest I came to find peace with myself, even when it's just for a few minutes in pray.

What I like in Bukit Mertajam.

I like the fact that my work place is only 5 minutes away. I don`t have to wake up too early to go to work.

I like the curry mee I had today.

I like the shopping malls around here. They have the biggest Jusco I`ve seen, with a few other big malls that are all within 2o minutes.

I like having (at least) a friend who studies around here If I`m being sent to Kamunting instead, things could be much worst.

I like having internet connection all the time, even at a very slow speed.

I like my new car, and been driving it every single day :)

I like a shop, where every dish cost only 2 ringgit. You can order 4-5 dish on a single meal.

---------------------------

I`m just trying to list down all the positive things to make sure I don`t dwell in misery much longer. Sigggghhhh.

Australs!

There`s loads of things that happen during Australs

I visited the Sanctuary at Healesville.

Hugged a 200 year old tree.

Touch a wallaby.


Visited the winery, again.



Met some girl.
Met lots of girls.

Accused someone for losing the access card


Played the piano drunk

also took a picture with my contingent.
But most importantly, I survived Swine Flu!! Yay.
Such a memorable tournament. :)

Quick Update

It`s been too long since I last update my blog. I still haven`t find the energy to upload my blog with pictures, especially from sydney and from australs. Right now, I`m trying very hard to adjust to my new life. It`s been a dramatic change though. Having spent the past month and a half in Australia, I`m finally back home, for 2 days.

I got a new car, moved to a new home in Bukit Mertajam, started my new work there, and basically a new life. Trust me, the shift was so sudden and so bad, I nearly broke down yesterday. I was thrown in here with no familar faces, the house was horribly dirty, and my housemate were 3 malay guys who are not even working in my office. The place have not internet, no hot shower and my office environment was equally as bad.

But I`m working things through. I found Pei Nee in Butterworth, and would probably stalk her for the next 4 months. I spent my way out of misery my eating like crazy and paid a tooth and nail for a personal wireless maxis broadband. I cleaned my room and its livable right now. I figure out the place wasn`t too bad after all. Billion is like 5-10 minutes away and jusco is like 15. There`s a cinema and all I need now is just company.

Going to be optimistic and hope to be happy in the coming 4 months.

This space is my simple escape from the harsh reality. Expect lots of random rants and whining apart from the daily reporting of things going I`m going through.

Take nothing seriously, leave comments, or just a simple hi. The world is getting smaller by the day, why not know each other now. Have fun ya all.
