yeah Kin wai, I'm one big meaty balloon. Can't blame moi friend !
I've been wanting to post this up earlier but ah, the procrastinator in me surfaced again, coupled with the fact that I have one humongous load of notes that I'm supposed to finish reading by next week.
Anyways, yours truly is back at home for about 2 weeks, of which every moment is a treasured moment, supposingly on her study break but darn the big bad TV to the depths of the fiery basement.
I fell victim to ED, Grey's Anatomy, The Apprentice, MTV, Channel V, Winter Sonata. You read that right - Winter Sonata... Gosh !
It's great living in a multiracial country, but it is even better if your own family is multiracial. My family and my dad's Klang clan went back to Penang to celebrate the joyous occasion that is Deepavali with my beloved Uncle and his family. It's beautiful really to see so many family members gathered in the house, for a dinner and of course, drinks.
It was nice to see my Uncle smiling with glee at all the loud noise, running toddlers, hysterical young adults and laughing gossipy aunties and uncles all under his own roof. It's a wonder that the roof didn't get blown off by the sheer noise. Everyone dug into the neverending food; tender mutton, spicy chicken, crispy freshly-made roti canai, vegetables, cakes of which I guiltily took more than I should. Chocolate and mint, man!
And then, there were of course, the drinks.
Rounds of bottoms-up among the cousins.
As I was one of the youngest, I wasn't allowed to participate-boo!- thinking that I'm the innocent one, that I, of all people, should be protected.
Nonetheless, they must have got a tad tipsy towards the end as I was allowed 2 glasses of wine and 2 shots of whisky-finally!- after which my face turned red like a blardy tomato.
Ate all I could of glorious Penang food and came back home. Throughout the whole holiday there I probably managed to read about 2 pages of Anatomy? Good job, amy.
On the way home, thinking that I must at least do some work since I'm forced to be in the car for at least 4 hours, took out my notes to the disbelieving sideways glance of mom, managed a few lines? and snored for the next TWO HOURS.
Wow, superb job, amy.
Went over to Deva and Navina's houses for belated Deepavali visiting with Alvinder but missed Shazeer's one though.
I had a great time.
Now, I've got to stick my nose into my books with UHU glue if you don't mind.
Pardon me for the lack of updates, but I'll be back!
