Notes from Batu Buruk pt.2

What I miss, after a week here?

Convenience. Of being able to do over-the-counter banking transactions during the day without too much parking hassle. Of being able to get good quality stuff without having to go across town and coming back empty-handed after more than an hour searching in three different stores.

Hot shower in the morning.

Good kuey teow goreng.

Connection. Late night chats! I miss that the most.

Sara asked if I don’t miss friends. Sure, but the people I talk to the most are not even in the country anyway, so it makes no difference where I am physically. Still, I foresee my phone bill to be higher from now on.

It is not like I’m not going home every so often, the boss is my orang kampung and likes to schedule meetings at The Curve. Which is fine with me. However, I don’t mind my current base. It’s still away from most people, with the beach as a bonus. I just don’t have a cave, but I think it’s a fair trade-off.

    Sist! Nanti if I balik Tganu, I singgah visit you, ok? My uncles’ and aunties’ place are everywhere there. Then maybe I can bring you back to my grandma’s place for some good food 😉

    Kak Spena: You asal T’ganu? Hehe.. good food is always an acceptable reason to meet 😀

    So you are now in KT. Be prepared to wait for a longgggg time for your order to come when you go out to eat.
