1st Day in Miri


*intending to post this 2 nights ago when i just arrived but i hadn't brought along my LAN cable... it's good to be back online after a 48-hour hiatus... from the internet! gosh, i don't recall the last time i was disconnected for this long.... =p

Finally after almost 3 weeks of break, i’ll be reporting for duty at my new place of work tomorrow. The last 19 days since my last day of work at my previous company; my so-called career break was activitiy filled ~ farewell dinner sessions with colleagues, lim teh catch-up sessions with many friends, core-strength classes, rock climbing outings, Gunpla group build, dates & spending quality time with family & loved one. It has been an eventful break for me, hectic at times but always fun. I guess i wouldn’t be having a break like this anymore for a long, long time. Being occupied with dates & appointments, i barely had the fact that i’ll probably be leaving home for good really sink in... Only now that i’m here already, i’m beginning to think about the wonderful company of loved ones & friends, & kuching food that i’ll be missing. Ha, i can get quite sentimental at times =p

This shall be my place of dwelling for the next 30 days or so...

I shall be looking for more permanent place to stay/rent after that. Just had some wantan noodles at one for the surrounding hawker centres; it’s not too bad compared to that of kuching, but food prices here tend to be slightly pricier in comparison. It can get unbelievably hot here, even at night! So i’d prefer to stay in the comfort of my airconditioned hotel room, and workout at the nice fitness center below sometimes...

Will be knocking off soon... got to wake up early to report for duty tomorrow. Boy, i’m so excited to get back to work again! =)

*may not be updating as often as i may need to make some adjustments in this transition period, but i’ll try to not let my blog grow too much cobwebs =p I’ll probably be back in kuching again 2 weeks from now, so til then take care & cya guys! =)
