By the way, I should have been on a flight to Kota Kinabalu, right about now, with my other friends for our Gunung Kinabalu climb. But guess what, I failed to bring myself to tell them that I cannot make it due to work and personal issues. Well, let's just say, my limited Annual Leaves plus my wedding 2 weeks ago made it not possible for me to be away for another 4 more working days.
Eh, what? My wedding?
|They see me spinning, they hating|
Yeah, yours truly here is married alhamdulillah! It's a long story, one that I may pen down for another time, another post.
So, back to my Kinabalu trip.
I have been like an ostrich so far when it comes to dealing with problems and believe me, it is not healthy. Why ostrich, you ask? Ostrich has this habit of burying its head in the ground, believing that since it cannot see the threats coming, the threats will not do it harm. What a conveniently irresponsible way to live hahaha
So, my writing this post is actually supposed to give me the guts that I seem to misplace, to apologise to my friends about my bailing out on them.
Oh, ya. Pretty twisted way to come out of a hiatus.

"Bashful, yet bold."
"Damn I didn't know you knew one.'
"Heh. Ada la. Not your typical Japanese girl though.."
It went silent again. Glued to their phones. Same routine for Nathan and Brooke.
"So, you know I dig person/things that don't fit the stereotype."
"Oh, are we still talking about that Japanese girl?"
"Hahaha kinda. Anyway, she's tall and lanky for a Japanese."
"Is she a model, then? Since she's blessed with height?"
"Naah, according to her anyway. But I like that modesty in her."
"Hahaha, like what, one of the Malays sayings? Ikut resmi padi, makin berisi makin tunduk?"
"Damn, you've made remarkable improvement. Powerr.
But are you saying she's fat, mate?"
And the two Mat Sallehs stop hanging out after that.
PS: The Japanese girl isn't fat. She's small built depsite her towering height.

Anyway, it's been a great year I think, and I couldn't thank Him enough for all the things he has blessed me with. My bad, scratch that off, for everything he has been blessing me with. And I look forward to 2017. Man, 3 series dah!
Maybe before I sign off (gotta sleep early to catch Liverpool vs Manchester City with JB Liverpool gang) I'd like to touch on one or two things.
I just can't help but feel a bit, disturbed, by the reactions shared on Facebook because of the passing of a number of famous celebrities. Sure, I too was sad upon learning the latest news of the Carrie Fisher's death. It is just that, I think it is an exaggeration to claim 2016 is the worst year ever, and how 2016 just has to take another life, and to keep your favourite celebrities/people safe by hiding at home.
Maybe they were also trying to cope with the sudden losses hence such response.
What I have come to terms with life, in 2016 is that, life is meant to be whole and the only way it can be whole is if you accept all the good and bad thrown at you. You can't expect life to deal you a good hand.
That everyone you love, fond of, will live forever and be around you for eternity. That money is just gonna roll in your bank account. That everyone likes you.
Sure, grieve, cry, sleep in, stay at home. But after that, you get back up. And learn from all that.
To whine and complain 2016 has been terrible and devastating, I think is not fair. For you to overlook the good things that happened to you for the past 52 weeks of 2016.
Be more grateful, thankful and appreciative of the blessings you have received thus far.
"You feel good on the inside.
It shines out in the outside"
|Happy New Year!|
Selamat Tahun Baru!
