Since everyone is posting their ‘Year in Review’ on FB, I thought of doing one too. 🙂
2015 has been interesting, to say the least. It has been a year of travelling, life-changing decisions, changes, and self-understanding. I’m glad I made it through safe and sound, and (hopefully!) a better, more mature person.
Here are some highlights:
Went glamping with colleagues at the Putrajaya Wetlands.
Celebrated Chinese New Year in Ipoh, Perak. Visited the Temple Caves – Kek Lok Tong and Kuan Yin Tong.
Visited the Telekom Museum in KL.
Maternal grandma passed away aged 90 after a year-long battle with liver cancer. Went back to Ipoh for funeral rites.
Big trip that took a whole year of planning. Hello, land of the free. Hello, America.
Sunny Los Angeles with it’s palm trees, art museums, beaches and Hollywood.
Tried balot for the first time at LA’s Filipinotown. It didn’t taste bad at all.
Then traveled further North to foggy, hipster San Francisco.
Rode in an SF tram for the first time.
Finally met Jeppeh the Fluff Boll Master Cat.
MAY – JUNE
Recovered from Post-Holiday-Depression-Syndrome. Scary experience when I got sexually harassed by a prick who tailed my car. Also ate a lot of food.
Went to Bukit Malawati to chill with monkeys, eat seafood and watch fireflies.
Met up with ex-collegemates at a wedding.
Quit a stable, well-paying job as a journalist at the largest news organisation in the country. Moved to a small start-up. Felt that time with family + sanity > working long nights, crazy weekends and no time for friends/fam. Parents still went berserk because traditional Chinese. Anyway, no regrets.
Birthday month! Turned 25 🙂 Simple celebration with close friends and fam.
Met Luilui Evelyn who came all the way from Johor to visit.
Got tatted as a birthday present. Parents went berserk again. Oh well.
Solo weekend excursions to the National Planetarium and Royal Malaysian Police Museum in KL. Haze was extremely bad in the Peninsula.
Some asshole broke my car window. Nothing to steal, but left with few hundred in repairs. Bastard -_-
Went island hopping in Krabi. Beaches and waters so beautiful heart felt like breaking.
Walked down the red light district in Phuket. Rode pillion on a bike, just like the locals.
Touched a cobra and lived to tell the tale.
There are only a few more days left to 2015. How was your year ? 🙂
