Backtracking - My 'Last' Night In Melbourne

Celebrating the New Year Eve plus spending my 'last' night here in Melbourne since I'm heading 'home' the following day. This is actually my second time enjoying the new year celebration in here.

Fireworks galore. Still the same but this time around I got my mom with me. Rather than spending the whole night in the house doing nothing, might as well spend some quality time together with her (Now, we hardly got the chances to talk or even meet . Note to myself - Need to go home more often).

Before that, I treated her to an Italian restaurant somewhere in Camberwell. I always talk about that restaurant to my sister but still, I didn't managed to bring her there.

What I noticed about the celebrations here in Melbourne when compared to the one in Malaysia is the crowd. Here, it's always about spending the time with the family, enjoying the firework display together with the loved one (no matter young or old), bringing foods from home (more like a picnic) whereas in Malaysia, only the young/teenagers/couples occupied the whole area doing nothing but just making noises plus not forgetting littering the whole area.

1st of January 2009, supposed to be the day that I leave Melbourne but unfortunately, my flight got delayed for more than 11 hours and luckily Air Asia provide us with a place to stay while waiting for the aircraft to be ready.

Nothing much to do in here but watching the TV. I tried to stay awake as much as possible so that I can sleep during my entire journey home (Wise decision).

P/s I'm off to Lumut in a short while.

A Day In Sabah

Pantai Tanjung Ara/Aru??? I'm not sure which one of it is the correct name (Short term memory loss).

Enjoying a fresh coconut drink by the seaside, nothing beats this.

Had my dinner together with the staffs in KK.

That's not me. Just fooling around with the guys since it's going to be my last day in KK.

At 1Borneo, the newest shopping centre in KK.

P/s To Honeylemon and Eedany if you're reading this, sorry for not being able to meet with you guys there in KK. My schedule over there is pretty tight but like what I said before, I'll definitely will be there again and really hopefull if we can hang around together and change stories. Cheers.

First Visit To East Malaysia

I've been spending most of my life here in Malaysia but sad to say, this is my first time to east Malaysia or Sabah, to be precise.

If the company does not send me here to work, I'm definitely sure it's going to be a very, very long time before I can set my foot here, on my own, that is.

Bukit Bendera's observation deck. A nice place to relax after a hard day at work.

View from above, overlooking the city.

Night time. FYI, I did not stay there till nightfall. This picture is taken on the following day.

My first visit here but definitely it wont be my last.

P/s Been busy with work. Got plenty of stuffs to share but so little time to spend. Thanks to everyone for your support and I'll definitely pay you guys a visit.
