last Tuesday night…

I was in Sentul with some long-lost relatives :) Well actually; I was the long lost one.

It was my uncle & aunt’s 25th wedding anniversary, and I actually wrote this entry *during* the event.
My cousins here don’t have WiFi, so bringing this iBook was a waste of time tho’.

One of my cousins (M) is reading this, wondering what on earth I’m doing.

Most of the attendees aren’t in our age group, but at least one person was using her head. Observing her surroundings… checking out the books… I didn’t realise this particular grrl was into books until today…she isn’t too happy that I don’t know her that well…ah well, according to her, I speak and act like her dad. Then again, that’s to be expected, as he and I share genes… and her dad’s ‘younger days’ photos do look like me, and my baby photos (gasp! where are those, anyway?! ) look like his son :)

M : you’re a bit on the emo side ah!!!!!!!!!!!!

now she’s freaking *me* out… some of my 10 readers knows how hard that is…
but she is quite right… I’m 20+ and I have … erm… 9 cousins on one side… and we barely know each other…

its terrible… and I wonder if our mutual parents are doing it on purpose. I mean, with my dad’s side, the relevant parents take the time & effort to organise holidays and events and all that and ‘make’ their children attend. My mum’s side, on the other hand, with some exceptions, don’t seem to care.

In a way, I feel like I’ve regressed to my childhood days, when I’d retreat from my relatives, because they were an unknown thing, and I was afraid. I feel like that now, cos the 3 ladies of the house are busy running around, running the show, and the 2 men are enjoying the company. I normally come over here and its their *company* I miss. I guess I’ll have to come over more often.

My dad’s outside… explaining what’s changed with our family to my grandma. She’s got Parkinson’s disease… she doesn’t remember me much. She asked me just now who I was, and she seemed surprised I was so tall. Its painful… when *she* of all people doesn’t know me. I defined myself by her… its tough to come to terms with the fact that she doesn’t remember such short term stuff…

I’m not sorry its taken so long since my last post.

I’ve been busy @ work, since this *is* an Apple store. It felt like everyone who walked in wanted an iPod and no one wanted to wait…

in between all that, on the 19th, I was in my first real car accident. This uncle in his Wira came out of a junction on the left without looking and I couldn’t stop in time. The whole story is for later, but no one was injured and I had CAA repaired over the Christmas holidays.

For Christmas, we had Christopher and my cousins from Ipoh here, and since it was school holidays, we had relatives coming and going all the time till the 3rd of Jan. It was lots of fun and meeting up and taking photos…
yes, the photos will be up within 5 days…

I’ve made a major change in my life… stay tuned for details…

PS. Those who know… keep the secret!
