Just when I...

.. start to understand more conversations spoken in Hokkien,
.. get used to the Friday after-work traffic jams,
.. am comfortable with conversing in Mandarin,
.. fell in love with the fresh coconut drinks that are vastly available everywhere,
.. become more familiar with the roads around Georgetown,
.. signed up a new facial package with the beauty parlour here,
.. booked a couple of cheap tickets from Penang-Macau,
.. discovered the awesomeness of Penang's fruit farm and buffet,
.. visited the gorgeous seafront pub at QEII,
.. became the regular customer of the cafeteria below my apartment,
.. begin to love the beaches and the Penang sea breeze,
.. rediscover the greatness of Penang laksa and char kuey teow,
.. learnt to eat outside alone,
.. embrace the warmth that is Penang air,



I am saying goodbye to it.

Allan said...

Excellent move. KL is 1000x better than that stupid island. Enjoy!

Big Bos Oven said...

if you coming to Kayel . . . . . welcome to KL! :)

Irene said...

Bye and all the best!

chiaoju said...

im going to miss u babe. *hugs* all the best.

here's a note to Allan. it would be great if you don't generalize and call THAT island a stupid island. if KL is 1000x better, should everyone staying in other places other than KL move to KL? that should make KL even congestedly better eh? =)

Yin Hoon said...

You're moving to KL? All the best ya! :)

Dear Allan,
There is one link i want you to have a look http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2009/1/18/nation/3055348&sec=nation . I hope you will be able to compare KL and the stupid Penang island.
Anyway there is no point comparing KL or Penang. Anywhere that makes one feel good, is good enough.

finally moving huh? now you can see more of your significant other!

Cecilia said...

Life is short. We always have to leave some things behind to move on (Else it will be too heavy).

Don't look back (because you can always go back to these things in the future).

Seize the moment :)

Welcome to KL ^_^

Plazzy said...

sidenote: hmm I seems to like this stupid island.
