Places I would visit again –  Indonesia and Laos.  Has this year been kind? It was rough having to work as a Grab car driver for 6 months earning very little.

Looking forward to January 19-20 , 2018 where Planetshakers will have their conference in Kuala Lumpur.

Travelling with dad has been and always will be fun! (routine: fly, hotel, meals, back to hotel, fly home)

I’m thankful for my dad’s emotional and moral support through these tough times. As I seek for thrills by going to shows, performances, singing and poetry gigs — at the end of the day, it’s awesome to have a dad that cooks and takes care of the house (I know, I’m terrible). His birthday is 16 Dec, so drop him a postcard at:

Lot 853 Kg Tun Sardon, 14400 Seberang Perai Tengah, PENANG. (Google)

Do I have dreams? Yeah, I day-dream almost all the time — even when I speak to friends (I know its rude). You may say I’m a dreamer. Too bad I couldn’t capitalise on that, and think of new innovative things or projects. Working at Helpdesk is easy — it’s routine, and clockwork-like.

This month — dad turns 73 so we will have a celebration in KL with the family (sans. my sis Sandra in the US). Then attend more shows in and around Penang. 2018? – more of the same. See where the wind blows and hope for the best.

Also, I’m really thankful for the friends I have. Truly blessed.

Here’s a random pic from my travels to Indonesia.
