Trip back Malaysia and Singapore 2009/10

The saying, "Time and tide wait for no man" is so true especially when it seemed like just yesterday that there were mix feelings about going back to Singapore / Malaysia, then there was the scene of Jasper clawing on my jeans refusing to let go as we tried to board the cab to the airport. But in a flash, the holidays back there came and went and for now at least I have photos and videos and the sweet memories to hold on before the next visit back. Here's some of the hundreds of photos taken... :p

My family: Brother Rodney and Sis-in-law Jane finally got married and this is from the wedding dinner.

Secondary school Bestie Cindy's Wedding. Together with the girls: the pretty bride, Susan and Beiwen. Missing Sharon cause she was not feeling well.

With dearest cousins whom I have played up since primary school! Janice and Kristie with her cutie son Jayden.

With 2 of my chaobohs Len and Joewiz (right) and Miko in purple top. At Midvalley Megamall in Kuala Lumpur.

With Miko and Chaboh Liz (Sheali) this time at Kim Garry restaurant also at Mid Valley Megamall in Kuala Lumpur.

Stayed with my dear Aunty Ruby when we were in KL. Mum and Aunty Judy on the right.

Pooh gang (and Tubby as well taking the photo! :p) at P.S Cafe at Dempsey Hill, Singapore.

With Secondary School besties again Wen and Ren at a Jap restaurant at Vivo City, Singapore.

With two of the dalpura gang Ying and Eileen: Coffee @ Starbucks!

With Korean trip pals Ailin and Swee Kee at Bugis Junction, Singapore.

So that's pretty much my time spent in Singapore and Malaysia. Apart from that, of course I ate a lot and shopped alot. I bought so many things from Jusco in JB cause they were such great bargains during the sale! I kinda regret not buying more, but then again bringing back the luggages might have been quite a hassle both with the weight and trying to squeeze things in. Oh well, till next time, at least I picked up most things that I needed.

2009 onto 2010 and when love is stretched to its limits...

How time flies and 2009 just zoomed by in a flash and now here we are at 2010. 2009 wasn't exactly one of the best year for me, let's just say there were more downs than ups, more quarrels, more conflicts, more misunderstandings in both personal and work life. Let's hope for myself and for everyone as well that this year may be a better and a happier one.

Some people say when you a marry a person, you marry his family as well. While some say, "why care about others (in-laws in particular) when the person you're marrying is the only one that matters?" While the latter proves to be the one easier to comprehend, somehow things are easier said than done. Would you give up your perfect other half just because his parents objected to the relationship? One would easily answer no and say "we'll fight for it"... But when your partner turns out to be some softie (though already in the late twenties) who cannot turn a blind eye to his parent's opinion, what would you do then? Would you keep waiting until they finally see the light one day? Or would you think that enough is enough and it's time to walk away?
