It Has Been 6 Months…

Our life’s a stage, a comedy: either learn to play and take it lightly, or bear its troubles patiently.

… and I’m still thinking about Dunedin.
I’ve accepted my fate, that I’m now back in Malaysia but I can’t deceive my own heart.

But you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go

Each time this song was played, my mind would be flooded with wonderful memories from when I was still in Dunedin. It reminded me of my great friends – Kak Arien, Missa, Chiho Kojima. Of the great activities I normally joined especially volleyball. Of the people who have been restlessly helping me until now (and still are) – Geoff, Niamh, Don, Yi Tian. Of my car and my small rented room at Clifton house, including my two lovely roommates – Winona and Jackmill.

With the current air in Malaysia reaching an unhealthy level due to haze, not to mention the heat, the crazy traffic and bad drivers, different work environment and the attitudes of the people, all these made me miss Dunedin even more.


There’s no place like home. Dunedin is my home, and forever will be.
One day, I’ll come back to Dunedin and “claim” my right to stay there for good.
