It Has Been A Year & Where Have I Been?

Hey everyone,

It has been a long time that I have not updated any post. Time flies quickly and eventually a year has passed. As much as I wanted to catch the momentum of blogging, I was juggling time with family matters, work and personal time. My apologies for being away for such a long time, allow me share in a nutshell what had kept me occupied.

May 10, 2015 – Dad Was Hit By Stroke

Traclyn - Dad Stroke

Something that I have least expected to happen and I was out of state, just arrived a day to be precised. My brothers told me it wasn’t necessary to return asap as dad was stable. I could never forget how painful, helpless nor hopeless it felt especially when he was admitted to ICU. Up until today, I could still cry remembering this.

My dad is a lot more better now and the attack has affected his mobility, speech and selective memory. He is eating well and trying very much to recover himself though there are times, it was tough for him because rehab process can be very tiring and painful. I have never given up on him and I believe he will walk again as how he used to be, time and effort will tell. Upon all this, eventually family matters grew along from all angles and it was really challenging to juggle in between. I was draining out.

Career @ Sephora

Yes, I have started working in Sephora Malaysia two years ago and being part of the Human Resource team can be quite challenging. I was required to travel between states and overlooking for all the stores in Malaysia for retail hiring. Challenges made me learned so much from different perspective and I was also personally invited by my colleague to share my personal interest to the team.

I was invited to share about how to blog to the team. How do you think my blogging interest relates to them? It is how I garner information and deliver it to the blog. For the retail team, they garner information and deliver it to customers. Big thanks to my colleague for giving me the opportunity though I have yet to much active in my blog.

Our New Home & Moving In

Jowie and Traclyn Home

We have gotten the keys on October 10 and most of the renovation was manually done by us and his family from painting, repairing and refurbishing selective furniture. It took us about 6 months working only on our weekends, that’s the only free time we have to get things done. I have moved in since May 2016 and recently, just had a house warming between friends and family.

March 30, 2016 – Registration of Marriage

Traclyn and Jowie Marriage Registration

Oh yes, I’m married! This date is also our anniversary date and it marks our 13th years together. Both of our parents were brought together to witness our registration of marriage. Jowie has been very supportive from the day one I knew him and guess what? He is the one who encouraged me to post this update because he knows what I love to do the most.

I’m much more settled down as compared to before, perhaps I will start writing again. Maybe to start off with one post a week? Keeping my fingers crossed, I’ll try to do more if I could. There are times I would update in Facebook and Instagram, do catch up with me from there!

A Goodie Pick

People say someone’s trash would be someone else treasure. Well I’m believing it yesterday. I found something by the back alley street side when I was walking with Jowie. Yeah, my sweetheart came back from Singapore. I ran and hug him the moment I saw him.

It still look very good. Just a little worn out at the bottom. I know it might sound like I’m a cheap ass, picking stuff from the streets but it’s still good. I could hang my handbags, shirts and hats.

Shih Ching’s 21st Birthday

I was invited by Chloe to go for Shih Ching’s birthday on 18th August. Yeah, she is a new friend of mine although they came from Swinburne University of Technology (Sarawak Campus). Well, although we have just known each other now, it wasn’t too late.

On the day itself, all my flat mates and I including Joel and his girlfriend who came for vacation, Racheal, went for the celebration. They were doing barbeques of chicken wings, chicken drumsticks, steaks and hotdogs. Shih Ching didn’t know that we are having a birthday celebration for her. At the starting of the barbeque, it was boring. It’s just the barbeque and some chatting session but I have been poking around and took some of their pictures.

Shih Ching was surprised that many are celebrating her birthday. Later that night, Chloe and Anita were being so nice to bring her birthday cake when previously everyone was asking for Anita. Unexpectedly, on Chloe’s hand there is a plate full of whipped cream hiding behind her. SPLAT! Shih Ching’s face is covered with whipped cream and the smell of the whipped cream is not that nice either. After that Shih Ching starting to chase everyone to make sure others get the cream on their face too. Look at the damage! I was one of the victims! Shih Ching didn’t even let go of the latecomers, Ai Leng and Jessie! They went to the church that night, that’s why they are late. It was fun! Thanks for inviting!

There will be more details on the places I have visited in Melbourne. There are many beautiful scenery and elements around town. Stay tune with me, alright?

Cheers~

Those Moments in Kuching, Sarawak

I just want to summarize those moments when I was in Kuching East Malaysia) for studies for a year. It’s been a great experience although originally I came from the place where most people in Malaysia wanted to be, the city of Kuala Lumpur. In my opinion, Kuching was not a bad place after all, although they are lack in certain substance, but somehow I think that Kuching is unique. The people are friendly and the environment is definitely cleaner than the city! It is a fact, you don’t believe it? Try visiting Kuching and I can even take you around for good shopping deals and food. I just want to thank to everyone I knew from Kuching because they were caring, kind, helpful and I have enjoyed a lot being there. I’ll never forget you guys! Time passes so fast that I didn’t even realize I have stayed there for a year, I’ll definitely miss everyone. Okay, here are some snapshots while I’m in Kuching. Enjoy!

The first time when I have reached Kuching, I didn’t have any camera with me, so I couldn’t record anything with me. I have come with a camera for the second time I flew back to Kuching. Some of the pictures are not here due to unforeseen circumstances. I have the pictures saved in Jowie’s laptop but unfortunately, one day his laptop went haywire and his hard drive was spoil. There you go, all the pictures are GONE! I’m sorry but I can’t do anything about it.
