About me: Travel to Perth and KL

Alright, there's been some speculation as to where I've been for the last week or so.

For a 10 day period, I went to Perth (Australia), and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia). I went to Perth because I had to get my residency for Australia officiated, and also to visit some family.

This was the first time I met my cousin in-law: Jack Lee. I like the guy: very down to earth, and boy does he have a way with words! Lucky cousin of mine ~ Cherry. Then there was also her sister Ting, who tried her very best to hook me up with EVERY girl she knew from around town.

*Oh come on... Do I look desperate?!

There were also the bunch of people I knew from 2003 when I was still building a power plant there. We used to hang out and were everyone joined the FGA Church, Perth.

If you're reading this...

G'morning Joanne... smile! :)

I thought it wouldn't have hurt to throw in some extra side trips to rekindle some fond memories of the past... food-wise. There were the Chili Mussels from Conca's, Deep fried intestines with salt and cracked pepper, and dim sum from Jade restaurant.

*Yes... we do enjoy some of the vilest of foodstuffs :P

Having spent 5 days in Perth, I flew to Kuala Lumpur for another 5 days before returning to Kota Kinabalu for work at site. Humbug.

Not much to report from the home front of Kuala Lumpur, apart from a good time catching up with family and friends. Oh, and Saturdays at McDonald's was good fun once again...

Why am I compelled to write?... Because the world I create in the writing compensates for what the real world does not give me. By writing I put order in the world, give it a handle so I can grasp it. I write because life does not appease my appetites and anger... To become more intimate with myself and you. To discover myself, to preserve myself, to make myself, to achieve self-autonomy. To dispell the myths that I am a mad prophet or a poor suffering soul. To convince myself that I am worthy and that what I have to say is not a pile of shit... Finally I write because I'm scared of writing, but I'm more scared of not writing.
