Taking a break

First and foremost, I hope it’s not too late for me to wish a Happy Chinese New Year for those who are celebrating Chinese New Year. May the year of Ox bring prosperity and wealth to all. Last holiday also give me a chance to go back to town (Kuching) to settle some unfinished business. It was a hectic journey, went to Sibu via express boat in the afternoon and stayed at Sibu for a while. After that took a bus to Serian at 1.00am, because there was no more ticket available that was en route to Kuching.

The bus was supposedly depart at 11.00pm but due to a delayed journey from Bintulu, we have to wait for 2 hours before it finally arrive. That was not all of it, just before the bus was about to take off, there was a couple who quarrel with the bus driver demanding that the bus would take them to Kuching…(hello…didn’t they read the sign on the bus that says…Bintulu-Sibu-Tebedu). The event took about 15 minutes before we eventually take off to Serian.

The bus arrived at its destination (Serian) around 6.30 am. Cart’s father (a colleague of mine) fetch us at bus terminal and I had my transit at her house not far from Serian town before she drove me to Kuching and reached home around 9.00am in the morning.

There were not much things to do during the 3 days stay. Well, here is the list of things that I did during that 3 days stay.

Things that I manage to do:

• spending time with family
• meet Bryan and Leo
• hang out on Chinese new year eve at airport with friends

Things I didn’t manage to do:

• Meeting Loid and some people I consider needed to meet
• Open house visiting with old friends just like we used to do
• Go on shopping and spending few dime on clothes

Later that Tuesday, left Kuching at 5.00 am in the morning with my Atos and pick Cartrina up at mile 29th Serian road. The journey took us around 6 hours to reach Sibu, unfortunately we couldn’t catch up the express boat because we were late. So we spend the night at the nearest hotel and left Sibu as early as 5.45am and manage to reach office at 9.00 am.
