Malaysia, here I come!
I made a decision last year to spend the majority of my holidays in Malaysia. While I would LOVE to explore other countries, I don't want to regret not seeing my parents for years. I don't know what it is- fillial piety? I like to think I simply like them very much. I certainly don't feel obligated. When they were here last month, I realized that if I were to visit them once a year, I'd end up seeing them only 15 more times before they pass away (and that 15 years is if they survive til 85!) which is kind off depressing.
We'll be visiting Malaysia twice in 2010- Chinese New Year in Feb and again, in July (for 4-8 weeks). My in-laws will join us there as well so that should be fun (and stressful).
I love how cheap Malaysia is. I love Topshop. I love t-shirts which fit me properly.
I have it all planned (sort of la). A few days at the E&O in Penang (or Cheong Fatt Tze mansion), a few days at The Lakehouse or Cameron Highlands Resort, 2 nights in Melaka, a 4-day jungle trekking package (which I will NOT join. I hate being active haha), 3 nights at an East Coast island... am I missing anything? The Dutchman and I will take advantage of Air Asia or MAS cheap fares to Cambodia or Vietnam or Hong Kong.
Woooo, I know it's still AGES away but I am so looking forward to it!
I'm not ready for school. I don't feel as if I'd a holiday. Being a student in The Netherlands is amazing though- I have one full day and all mornings off this semester. I pretty much have an average of 12 hours a week.
5.5 months before I get to eat cookies and pong teh.
