Just keep walking

Hello blog.

Suddenly, I have the mood to update again.
It's been an overwhelming past 2 months.

I didn't mention it on the blog, but since 01/012016, I got into a relationship.
The relationship ended on 10/10/2016.

The numbers were never planned. It just happened. It's so weird..

Lol fuck my emotions. I thought I am okay but just writing this is making me tear up again.
Anyway, not here to talk about my past relationship.
I just want to talk about how I'm moving on.

Now I'm thinking about it, many things seem really weird.

The very day I broke up, I went out with someone, let me just call him Fatty haha.
I thought we would go as a group, ended up it's only me and him wtf. And this Fatty, tried to get me to start a relationship with him.

I don't know who the fuck he think he is, but wtf we just fucking met. How crazy and desperate can someone get?

The next day, another guy tried to ask for my number.
Sounds normal, but I rarely get someone asking for my number hahahah.

And then one of my friend randomly told me he broke up with his gf a day before. Which makes it the same day I broke up with my ex.

To me, all these are weird...

Fast forward a few weeks, a new staff started working. Some similar aspects to my ex, and then I found out, they both have the same name. Another wtf moment for me.

I know, it's only me that feel this way. Other people are probably like, nah nothing special.

We became friends, and funny thing is I am not that make the first approach.
And now, I sometimes find myself questioning, and I getting interested in this new person? Or vice versa?

And sometimes I sense we are both similar. Suffering from loneliness perhaps, or sadness, whatever. And both desperate to find a companion, to take away the pain..
To escape from the loneliness.

I don't know what this will lead to, probably nothing but just friends, but I don't want to repeat the same mistake my ex did to me, the last time I want to do is do what my ex did to me.


But of course, that wasn't the only thing helping me move on I guess. I am moving on, but not fully.

When I just broke up, I was lucky to have made a good friend that let me stay with her all the time. To talk to me, distract me from everything, to remind me I have to stay strong for me.

Being in a foreign country far away from all my comforts, it is hard to go through something like this. Especially when I didn't have a close friend here. At the time I broke up, all I wanted to do is to go back home, where my family and friends is.

To escape from this island, where the memories of me with my ex is EVERYWHERE.
Everywhere I go, I will be reminded of the past. There is no escape..

I can only force myself to go out and meet people.

As a result, I got on Tinder, and met some guys there. Just meet up as friends, travelling around..

But even if I am distracted in the day, by night fall when I am alone in my room, I can do nothing but remember it all and face my memories.

Time does heal though. It may be slow, but it does heal.

Now I am much better.
I can finally accept being by myself again.


I have also picked up a part time job.

I'm a nanny now!

Meet little Ella!

Adorable little girl :)

It was quite easy taking care of her, although it can be really tiring.
She is full of imagination, and demands my full attention to play with her haha.

Keeping myself busy is good for me I guess.

As usual, a very messy post.

I wonder if the future me will understand. H

Haha maybe she will, as I could still understand the old post I wrote.

Okay signing off now.

I'll be fine with time :)

Lost my spirits

Seems like I've abandoned my blog...

There is so many things happening, so many emotions within me, I just can't keep up anymore.

Working in this company, I was happy at first. I met new friends, visit new places, minimal problems with my boss.

But when it's time to renew, problems start. Delays start. I was supposed to go home in May for a vacation, Now it's almost July, and I still am waiting for news. I'm so tired of asking everyday. 

Now, I'm all alone here. All my close friends have left. The closest friend will come back to this island in a week, thank god for that, but it's just different as she's not working on the same hotel anymore. I miss her.

My emotions is like the waves here, on this rainy season. HUGE crashing waves, spinning my emotions in turmoil. At times, it's calm. But there will be no warning when it will get rough.
I'm so tired of everything. Especially myself. My emotion.

Yesterday, I went out with the bands from another hotel, we explored around and met other bands.
It was a night of laughter for me. But yet when I got back, I broke down until I feel asleep.
When I woke up, I didn't even realize that it's morning. I thought I was just having an afternoon nap.

I have no idea what's happening to me.
All these waiting, it's exhausting.

Don't get me wrong, I am not unhappy working on this island. It's just that the problems I have with the boss, he kept me waiting about things so long. Damn tired of this.
Also because I'm all alone here now, I feel more depressed than ever.

I applied for another job on another hotel.
Now I'm just praying to god to let me have it.

And to just keep on waiting for it all to be over with this hotel.

I'll be fine.

Another summer day
Has come and gone away
In Paris and Rome
But I wanna go home, mmm

May be surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
I just wanna go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

And I've been keeping all the letters
That I wrote to you
Each one a line or two
I'm fine baby, how are you?

Well I would send them but I know
That it's just not enough

My words were cold and flat
And you deserve more than that

Another aeroplane
Another sunny place
I'm lucky I know
But I wanna go home
Mmm, I got to go home

Let me go home
I'm just too far
From where you are
I wanna come home

And I feel just like
I'm living someone else's life
It's like I just stepped outside
When everything was going right

And I know just why you could not
Come along with me
That this was not your dream
But you always believed in me

Another winter day
Has come and gone away
In even Paris and Rome
And I wanna go home
Let me go home

And I'm surrounded by
A million people I
I still feel alone
Oh, let me go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

Let me go home
I've had my run
Baby, I'm done
I gotta go home

Let me go home
It'll all be all right
I'll be home tonight
I'm coming back home


"Home is where love is."

They say that, but why don't I feel completely at home?
Is it because I have loved ones at both places?
I'm torn apart.

The last time I was home, I miss "'" and the island.
Now I'm still on the island, I miss home and my family. 
I wanna go home, but I don't want to leave "''.

"Wherever I am, I will miss home."

Suoi Tranh! - Tranh Waterfall

Omg this post is sooooooo backdated haha.

I went there on 25th November 2015 :x

But yeah, just want to post out those pictures I have and update my poor neglected bloggie.


On that day, we rent a motorbike! It was 100000VND for a whole day, which I think is cheap :D
Ju drove, and hehe she's a good driver.
At first I was afraid, but then I relaxed and I really enjoyed it :D

The ride is about 15 minutes from Duong Dong town. We wasn't sure of the way, but Ju asked the locals along the way.

It was a peaceful and relaxing ride. The road is quite empty and wide, and in between lots of trees :D

Upon arriving at the place, you'll be greeted by...

This huge stone deco thingy lol. I have no idea what to call it.
Landscape deco?

Anyway once inside, there's quite a few figurines/deco for people to take photo lol.
I didn't take any haha.

The walk/hike up to the waterfall is about 15 minutes. It's generally an easy hike, but I see Ju panting away hahahha. 

There's also hammocks along the way :D

It's a nice hike, cause you're surrounded by so much natural beauty :D

Sounds of cicadas in the forest, and the tricking sound of water.

Views along the way.

After 15 minutes of those, we reached :D

Yeah, picture spams as always haha.

The pool at the falls is not really deep, maybe slightly less than 6ft.
The water was reallyyyyyy cold though. 

It's not very crowded, but there were a few groups of other visitors as well.
However towards 5.00pm, Ju and I were the only ones left :)

Which is how I managed to take those pictures haha.

I loved it, and I wish to visit again hehe.

It was just so very peaceful.

We left around 5.30pm I think, as it was getting cold and it will start to get dark at 5.45pm.
On the way down, we bought ice-cream! :D

Heh. ^_^
My favorite :D

After that we just head back to Duong Dong.
Ju drove through the market area and omg it was crowded!
In Malaysia we have car traffic jam, over here it's motorbike traffic jam hahaha.

She then brought me for dinner, we had something called Nem Nuong.

It's barbequed pork with rice noodle, salad, and chili sauce.
Quite nice. Especially the pork :D

After dinner I suggested walking along the pier by Dinh Cau.
It was nice, we were chatting and looking at the moon. :)

And that's it haha.

Recalling 2015 and New Year

A brand new year, and I'm still overwhelmed by 2015 to fully grasp that 2016 is already here.

If you ask me what is my best achievement in 2015, I would say, "Coming to Vietnam for work."

I've been here for 2 months now.
I still feel overwhelmed by all that has happened, and that is happening.

This is my best experience so far, learning to cope in a country I'm not familiar with, pushing my comfort zone and meeting new people, experience the beauty of staying by the sea, experience new foods, and working as a hotel pianist.

Also in 2015, I've completed my ABRSM Piano Practical exam, Grade 8.
I scored an unbelievable score of 142 out of 150. Holy shit it's distinction, my first ever distinction in my piano exam. I took Grade 1, 5, and 7 before, but none of them is distinction. My Grade 1 was merit, and Grade 5 & 7 only passed, nowhere near merit.

When my teacher told me my score, I refused to believe her at all. It was too much for me, I cried like an idiot. Tears of joy and fear, I was so afraid it was a mistake. I finally let myself believe when my mom sent me a picture of my exam result slip.

What is even more unbelievable is that I scored 29 out of 30, for all 3 of my pieces.
Oh god I'm still having a hard time believing. I really wish I could travel back and listen to myself play in the examination room.

Anyway, besides that, in 2015 I've finished with classes in college. There's a few assignments left, but that's it.

I've also experienced a kind of loneliness after I've moved out from my apartment in USJ, and started working almost everyday in hotels KL. I was alone a lot, driving to work by myself, walking around in malls and doing errands by myself. I've felt more grown up that ever, not sure if it's really my character and attitude, or just because I dress myself in gowns and makeup and heels.

Although I can think of 2015 and mostly great, there were still down parts of course.

I've lost a best friend, I have no idea what happened to him, but he just disappeared and couldn't be contacted at all. It hurts me, I've put my trust in him, and he just betrays it. I know he is alive, since I saw him online, but now he has either blocked me or deactivated his Facebook. I've given up trying to contact him, I tell myself it's not worth it. What's the point when someone is just pushing you away like that?

Also, it wasn't an easy year financially for my family. At least during August to October, I was working and it wasn't so bad.

Okay...I can't recall much anymore. All I thought of was me coming to Vietnam lol.


Now, moving on.

During New Year Eve, I was working. Actually not exactly working, but I was by the stage on the beach of the hotel's New Year dinner. I played 3 songs, and just spend the evening and night watching other's performance and just chilling.

I will post about this one day ahahahhaah. After I've post all the others pending posts I want to make about my experience in Vietnam lolol.

Anyway on New Year, I am no longer single, and I have my first love.
It was not something I've ever expect before, and not something I've ever thought about
Hahha that's all I'm gonna say.

Also, I fell down from an electric bicycle on New Year hahhahhaa. Grazed my arm badly, and ended up not working for 3 days hahahhaahah.

I was happy that I didnt have to work at first la, but then the pain kicks in and REGRET ahhahaa.

Welp that's it I guess?

New Year Resolutions?

Be a better person.
This was told to me by my housemate last time, during 2015's New Year.

So yep, here's to become better in 2016.
