Its 14 days into the new year but better late than never 🙂
I had a really long afternoon nap when it rained earlier this evening and I don’t think I can get much sleep tonight. Just finished a movie (YAYS to movie nights) with the family over pizza. Slumber dinner hehe.
My 2013 started off with work. After SPM (2012) I pretty much lazed around, well after coming back from Sarawak. But by the last week of January I was hired by True Fitness. Nope if your guessing I did not train people. Worked as the counter girl / customer service. But heck, not as easy as it seems. At least I had Nadia, Surya and Munawar around to fool with during work. Although we didn’t get the same shift all the time we managed to sneak naps and etc. hehe. overall it was a good experience to learn the system of such an established company.
Then SPM results. Although it was unexpected for me to do well in some subjects I pulled through. Soon enough I got an offer from Swinburne, it was so last minute I quite my job 3 days before flying off to Kuching.
Swinburne. An interesting chapter indeed. Orientation week flew by, classes started and then the class trip. That was the start of getting to know everyone. Since then theres no stopping us Twenty Force. Nights were filled with studying sessions at the library and mamak afterwards. On top of the crazy schedule (PACKED LIKE SARDINES) we managed to publish a magazine, for our english. That was one of the hardest task in SEM 1 for me because I was the Chief Editor. Despite all the arguements I am glad it made us closer as a class. After our physics we had quite an experience in Damai.
Man I love my class.
Soon enough SEM 2 started. The MPW semester. The closest people to me was Fien, Ron, and Jeremy. We were same groups for both. Visited the SSPCA for the first time and lost my blue logos band 😦 Overall it was a “holiday semester”. Nights of movies, outings, mamak sessions.
Home for 5 days was like heaven
SEM3 was not as packed as usual because I studied an extra unit in the summer semester. 3 subjects, piece of cake… or so I thought. New class again. This time, most of us who passed all the units were in the same class. Kevin, Caleb and a few others were also in the class 🙂 This time everyone started gyming. On top of studying, mornings were filled with gym sessions and etc. The best thing about this semester was the running club. Chris thankfully set up a route. Soon enough the club grew, almost a hundred at one point. I got my classmates and even Kevin to join! Made alot of friends from there, I really miss running at night. heh. I even managed a weekend of running. Joined the Monster dash (5km), Larian Belia (7km) and the usual route the next day. Onz like crayonz. Bought a new shoe and it really helped. Managed a top-10 on the monster dash 🙂
This is why you should sign up for a running club today!! 🙂
On the last week of finals, Dad came. I got really sick during exams, so after that I met up with the family and spent the next few days sleeping in the hostel.
Roadtrip. That sunday, the family packed up for Sebuyau. (Dad’s hometown) Spent a night to say hi to Aunty Rose, Aunty Runin and Uncle Meli.
The next day we headed off to my Mama’s place in Betong. Spent a few eventful days here, my Mama even closed her Kopitiam for a day when we arrived 🙂
Drove to Bintulu. Visited dad’s bro. The cool uncle. He brought us to so many places with good food. After breakfast we even drove awhile to the river just to find fish (to buy). But turns out everyone was on Christmas break so we just spent awhile sitting by the river drinking Soda. 🙂
After a couple of days, we drove to Miri. By then it was the 22nd already. *OOH Superman by Joe just played hehe.* Anyways we spent Christmas there and got back to Home on the 27th (home sweet home). Christmas this year was a quiet one. The food and fellowship in Miri however, quite the opposite. The BBQ pit was always filled with fire. The kitchen was always full. Pretty much lazed around eating. Nights were spent with the older ones drinking punch or whatever they call it. Yeaap they brought liquor. My uncle is a bad influence but oh wells ahha. Slept in my grandmas room, she got so attached to me. Hahah love my family to the bits.
Well, there. My year summed up. 🙂
till then.. God bless!
