Merdeka Day anyone???

So its my first Merdeka Day here in Malaysia...and a few more to come in the next few years...decided to take off to my good old kampung to get some RnR and also to soothe my grandparents hearts...-according to them im wasting my time going back to Singapore every other weekend-...so here i am in the middle of the forest...-with the only internet connection around here (thank the Almighty for a savvy grandpa like mine)-...hacking away at the keyboards in the mist of the mountains...

And i thought i could get away from it all...apparently not...the local gossip here moves faster than a KTM train running through to Seremban...the small town politics and what-nots...its funny...if you look at it from a different perspective and as an outsider...

What's new in the kampung house...well my grandparents got themselves a new DVD/CD player...(dont pray pray ok...)...a new living room set...a new CAT!...its beautiful...still a mighty little playful kitten...she got scolded last night for trying to claw the speakers to the hi-fi and hid its head underneath the tv console as my grandma tried to spank her...hehehehe...it was a funny sight...pandai lak tu merajuk and buat muka sedih...dah merajuk terus duduk pat atas sofa and terlelap...wahakz...notty...i had to restrain myself from trying to call her Chincin...my first ex-bf's cat...looked exactly alike...only different sex and different in size...she's a little darling...don't know what got into my grandma to pick up that wee little thing at the market...

I'm supposed to be leaving tonight but my grandma insisted that i stay another night at her house...so its another night and a rush out of the house tomorrow morning for my 12 noon class...im supposed to be doing some research in school but thanks to the availability of the internet here i don't have any problems...

Thanks for the well wishes from some of you...im still hacking away with a newly developed cough...and my flu is still lingering...hope its not what i think it is...well...enough of my blabbering for now...more this weekend maybe...
