The sun is not shining as brightly again today. It seems that is has been raining almost every morning in Kuching while I am on the way to work. Even when I was super early like the other day, the sky was cloudy and threatening to spill buckets of water on us. Indeed, it is impossible to go around without an umbrella or two in the car when you are in Kuching. While it is raining monkeys and bananas here, it seems that where my babe is, the sky is clear without a hint of rain anyway. We are thankful for this actually since he goes to work on his bike even if the distance is only 15minutes away.
Hard to believe that it is actually Friday and weekend is just around the corner. Seems like just a few days ago, I was complaining about getting Monday blues on a Tuesday. Where has the time gone to? I guess with so many things happening in life right now, I somehow let time slipped by me without much notice. And then pretty soon, it will be time to say farewell to the old and hello to the new chapter of my life. As I was telling my friends and babe, I have mixed feeling about this.
Happy because I do not expect to be offered a job with pay that is almost towards the range that I am looking for and of course because I will be with my babe. Sad because I will be leaving my parents and friends behind. Worried because of my parents and also the challenges that I know we will face when we are there. Anxious because I know time will fly and the the world war III that I know we will face at home because of my mom. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to this as I have already made up my mine that I will do this.
Had a heart-to-heart chat with dad this morning. Turn out that he is not very pleased with the fact that babe didn't came in person to propose or approach him before or after the big entourage came to my house the other day. Sigh~! I tried to explain to dad that it is very hard for babe to take leave since he is still very new at his job. But dad said, "Surely he can come back just for a day to see me. He can take off during the election and fly back and fly off again the next day". So, babe will be coming back for one of the weekend when he is not working on Saturday.
To be frank, the both of us thought that because he is not here, his mom and big team of relatives came on his behalf would have been enough. But dad seems to think otherwise. I guess that just goes to show that we should never try to assume what other people think because no matter how well you know the person, you are NOT the person. So, babe will be calling dad this evening to explain as well. Hopefully, that will smooth some ruffles with dad. I really want dad and babe to be close enough to discuss anything.
Right, enough about my morning woes. It is much to early to be filled with all my nonsense.
