Leaving On A Jet Plane


My bags are not packed, but I'm ready to go.

I finally booked my Melbourne-Kuala Lumpur flight on next Tuesday, 28 February, at 12.45am.

I have to take international flights at nigh. I get really restless and agitated to fly long hours during daytime.

So I'll be arriving at KLIA at 5.45am on 28 February. Oh I'm so excited! I get to be around my Bee again after not seeing him for 5 months.

But in the mean while, I have lots and lots of things that needs to be done and lots of lots of things to pack. I get a headache just from thinking about it.

My place is so messy now that it isn't even funny anymore. Moving is such hassle!

I probably won't be blogging for the next few days. The mover is coming to shift my things to the storage place I've rented on Wednesday, and then I'm officially vacating this apartment on Thursday.

I'm feeling a bit nostalgic leaving the place that has shielded me for over 12 months, though I hated it at times.

Also, I'm experiencing separation anxiety from parting with my belongings.

Maybe this is one of the reasons why I kept putting off my trip back home. I'm too used to living by myself, and I feel comfortable having everything I need around me. I feel insecure leaving them a familiar environment where I know exactly how everything works and functions.

It might not make much sense to some. I don't quite understand it myself too. Afterall, I'm not going to a strange place, but the country that I grew up in.

Oh well, let's not dwell on the negative feelings and focus on the positive ones. I'm going home!! What can be better than that huh?

Well, I guess I'll be talking to you guys next in Malaysia.

Till then, take good care and stay cute, fellas. :)

Yes, welcome home! I had to make that same trip 5 years ago and I can never forget the feeling I had as the plane took off and I looked back on the place I had so many memories.

And although it took some adjustment here (No more Coles, no more trams on the hour, having family all around) there's really no other place like home! :)
