Greetings from Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

This is my first time writing my blog at Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. After settling down for more than a week over here, I have finally found the feel of being at home, a peaceful one. One thing that I am not used to it is just the day comes too early every morning and the sky starts to get dark at 6pm (as compared to KL at around 7pm). People here are very friendly and easily mixed with even though I am a real stranger to them. No home sick, no cultural shock!

The sea facing South China Sea 

The varieties of fresh seafood. Drooooooling... 

 The directions along the road

I started to miss my family, all my friends at KL, my fellow friends who are working at all around Malaysia, my mum’s cooking, and even my own cooking and last but not least, my Ultraman boaster. But with everyone’s blessings and my constant daily prayers, I realise that life over here is never going to be hard.

Time to wake up at 6pm... Yawnnnnn.. Too early for work!

I will try to update more often. Enjoy and have a nice day.

Bon Voyage!!!!

Hey, guys. I guess this will be my last post before I get on the plane and fly over the South China Sea. I actually thought of leaving this "City of Heavy Traffic" so-called quietly but it didn't seem to be succeeded. Anyway, I am really thankful with all the wishes and blessings from all my family, relatives and friends. (Too many to thank if I want to list out here) And many actually asked me when will I be back and work here. Errr.. I pondered about this question for quite some time already but it came to an conclusion that "I have no idea at all". This also might be my stepping stone to seek for greener pasture at other places in the coming years. Never mind, decisions have yet to be decided and I have at least 2 years to think about it. So now, I should concentrate more on my new job at a new working environment. Wish me luck ^^ Fingers crossed*

Cheers Kevin.

It's Time For A Change

I am done at the university finally and it's time to move on to a new working environment. I really really really hope that it will be by the beach! I really really really want it so badly. But too bad, rumors are spreading around saying that only 3 places are available only and only one is by the sea. 

Last McD meal before I left the University

Oh gosh! I never have a break at home since I have finished my stuff at the university. And I even haven't pass up my last report to the lecturer. Busy week ahead, spending quality time with close friends and family is really important. -------------------- Friday night - occupied; Saturday - occupied; Sunday - occupied again. And even Monday night, no excuse! Tuesday is going to be a good rest day and Wednesday is reserved for my U'mates. --------------------------- How about food?! I guess I have drilled most of the taste in my mind now. From Mamak Mee Goreng, to SR's Chocholate Mud Cake. Food from Alor Setar, Kedah all the way down to KL. And you know what, kill 2 birds with one stone at Pudu just now. You definitely can't run away from famous Chinese-speaking mamak cendol with Pan Cake (behind the post office). It's going to be a pizza day tonight!! Yahoo! And now, left with 2 more before I leave KL! Ha-ha.. But I was wondering, how come everyone is treating me as though as I won't be back to KL in near future?! If so, I will leave KL perhaps Malaysia more often in years to come. =p

Mission accomplished! Ready to go now without packing any stuff yet! =p

Enjoy and have a nice day. Happy weekends for my friends from Kedah and Kelantan! =)

Day of Obligation

Finally, I am leaving my job at the university to seek for greener pasture! After leaving the job, it's time to spend my remaining time left in KL wisely perhaps for about 2 weeks. This is going to be my first time leaving behind heavy loads of memories and have no idea about when I will be back. Anyway, ......

Today and tomorrow are the important days for me as well as others who have the same faith. It's always All Saints' Day on every first of Nov and All Souls' Day on the second for the Catholics. Since many years ago, my mum bought me a book "Lives of Saints". This was the only book that I have finished from the first to the last page. And when we talk about Saints, many would know that they are the Holy Ones. So what motivates me to continue reading was actually how they lived their life in holiness. How they inspired me was really important because it makes me to become useful person in the society. Not only that, there is always miracles among the Saints. I believe many people would have heard about the mummies, but how about the "Incorruptible"? It may come to your surprise when you discover the truth about why their body can be preserved for many hundreds of years!

And when it comes to All Souls, it is the day where we pay our visit to the graveyards. To remember our loved ones is really important because without them, it would be without us living here on earth eventually. It is virtually the same as Ching Ming for the Buddists and First day of Raya for the Muslims. Besides, we may also share some memories and gather with the people whom we do not often meet e.g. relatives. True? So visiting the graveyards is not merely just about visiting the graveyards! =)

Looks like it's time for me to figure out what to pack from today onward! Cheers and have fun!
