回顾2017

去年,在Jeng Mun的鼓励下开启了instagram的account,
一开始只是玩玩罢了,久而久之就有一点点的上瘾了。
我个人觉得比FB有趣,所以时不时都会上载一些日常生活照片。
那天一直看到有人post#2017bestnice的照片,就问了我弟媳如何弄。
今天终于把它弄出来了。
我很满意!
因为我没有想到里面竟然包含了我去年大大小小的achievement和点点滴滴。
一开始是因为旅行照而开始,然后也囊括了家人,我可爱的柔柔,工作,爬神山挑战记,食物 (#llaollao),朋友,和生日...
当然还有婚礼。。。这两年是朋友婚礼的高峰期,陆陆续续的出席了不少的婚礼。。。
*钱包也出了很多血*
2018年,陆陆续续的还是有婚礼要出席。。。
*钱包要继续出血咯*
还有,看着照片,我想我最多的#大概就是#bestauntintheworldalive... 哈哈。。。
而且我深深的体会到要带宝宝出门是多么麻烦的一件事。
要带的东西多,时间也要迁就他们的睡觉时间,不然就是大件事。。。
还有,出去的时间也不能太长,因为他们要睡觉。
出门一次就无敌累!
简直就是无敌铁金刚。。。
我很好奇当年我妈是怎样看我们5个的。。。
今年又会多一个宝宝,我不知道我还会不会带他们出门。。。
因为真的很辛苦的~~~
可是应该是会吧,因为我想带我妈到处走走啊!


总括来说,一开始我觉得我的2017年没有什么值得怀念的。。。
可是看了照片以后,我对我的2017年很满意。
原来照片帮我珍藏了那么多值得纪念的时光,
还有很多的achievements!
我想我2018年会继续上载,因为我个人很懒惰做这些回顾,
可是现在的科技却帮我自动做了记录和回顾,
希望2018年有更多的回忆和achievements. 
如果可以的话,还是希望今年可以毕业。。。
那么就可以更专注在其他的事情上了。

Kota Kinabalu “小插曲”

话说我的朋友在KK爬完山后为了犒赏自己就想要尝试一间“网上”“知名”海鲜店。
4个人,其中一个是吃素的。另一位就还好。
可是去到那家店时,我发现到那些海鲜的价格都很贵,不是在我预想中的价格。
虽然我不是很熟悉海鲜的价格,
但是其中一种鱼类是我在KL都有在吃的,可是价钱却比KL还贵。
这时我就很怀疑这是不是一家“黑店”,
或是专做游客生意的店。
当我们挣扎要不要吃的时候,那两位朋友因为一些事情而离开了。
所以剩下我和她决定要不要进去吃。
对我来说,我是不想当“水鱼”给人“剖”,
还有一位朋友的预算也是有限,
可是为了朋友,我选择了放弃金钱。
所以我说如果她真的想要吃,我可以陪她进去吃。
但是她拒绝了。

但是当我们回到比较平价的吃海鲜的地方时,她就有在和我斗气。
然后问了虾的价钱以后就一副觉得价钱不便宜的样子挂在脸上。
然后说第一条ikan bakar是臭了的,要换过一条。
一直问为什么这样的鱼都吃的下,吃了第二天会生病之类的。
一直问我吃不出吗?平时没有吃鱼的么?
其实我是很生气的,可是为了愉快的旅途,我选择不出声。
我很感谢她吃出了那条鱼的不妥,可是换过就好啦。
一直在问是怎样?当下的我很想说,我很少吃ikan bakar的,
我平常都只是在吃清蒸的游水鱼啊!!!我怎么会分?
你叫我分清蒸鱼好不好吃我就会,ikan bakar没有研究啊!
而且也不健康,我平常是不吃的!!!
都说我都只吃清蒸/活鱼再拿去煮不同煮法的鱼啊!
但是我选择不出声,因为我觉得没有必要和她争吵。

选择今天写出来是因为刚刚驾车的时候想到了很好的比喻,
也有可能是因为还看不开,所以想要写下来。
这个经验就像是一位朋友告诉你到了这个地方一定要买LV.
虽然这里的LV比你来自的地方贵/一样价钱,可是还是要买啊!
你不知道LV出名的吗?来到这里一定要买的!!!
但是作为一个只是用惯Chanel/Prada的人来说,
连LV都要那么贵,为什么我不直接回家买Chanel/Prada呢?
为什么我不买就是我的错呢?
难道我的钱不能花得更有价值吗?
一定要浪费在这个CP值不高的“LV”身上吗?

*我是在assume着LV比Chanel/Prada便宜。不确定是不是。
因为本人现在连一个Prada/Chanel/LV/Gucci都没有。。。

过后这位朋友就说其实那家店有比较普通的食物和他们的仪器和一种鱼类是只是他们家才有的。
然后说过了就算了,不要再提了。
但是我很庆幸的是我当下有狠下心说配她吃,是她不要罢了。

其实在我们还没有去那家店之前,
当我们和我们的司机谈起时,感觉上他也觉得那件店overpriced. 
我的朋友也上网查了一些鱼类的价钱,
发现到KL一些知名的餐馆的海鲜售价还比他们便宜。
所以她也觉得那不如在KL吃,至少还可以post FB炫耀啊。
她觉得那位朋友不应该把她的情绪发泄在我身上,
我也这么认为,可是我很理性的处理了这件事。
就是我知道她就是一个这样的人,所以选择不和她计较。
毕竟作为朋友,她还是有很多优点的。
把这件事写下来是为了记录下原来我在不知不觉中好像成熟了不少。
因为如果是以前的我,我应该已经也在发脾气,
选择不谅解她,然后一直说自己的对的,是她错。
现在的我,知道自己有道理,选择不和她争吵。

另一个让我很庆幸的是我的另一位朋友能了解我,而且为我感到不平。
认为她不应该把脾气发在我身上。
而且不用我说得很明,就理解到我通常都只是在吃清蒸鱼的这件事。
我不是为了炫耀,只是有时候,换个角度想,你看的事情会不一样。

My kinda "PERFECT DAY"

为了让自己记得这样的一天,
我决定要把它写下来。
话说有一个星期六,早上一早我见了两个个案后就回家。
个案都很合作,准时来到,session也进展得不错。
我自我感觉非常良好的回家。
吃了午餐后就倍侄女玩一下,
顺便躺在沙发上看电视和小睡了一会。
睡觉的时候还听得见我妈和她玩的声音。
晚上就打报告和休息。
睡前看看书。
更离谱的是,
天气更是偏好的一天。
又是有云,有时太阳会出现,可是体感温度是处于凉爽的。
那天真的是我最近生活里美好的一天。
那一天,我度过了我一直都很向往的生活。
其实我要的生活就是很简单,不愁衣食的生活。
半天工作,半天在家。
Work life balance的生活,一直都是我向往的生活。
如果每一天都可以这么过,夫复何求。
而且我不介意每一天都要工作啊,因为工作已经成为了生活的一部分了。
那天和朋友提起这样的一天时,
谈到旅行,我就想,如果这是我每一天的生活,那么旅不旅行也不是很重要。
因为我已经在过着我想过的生活了。
可以到处旅行,看看不一样的人事物当然很好。
可是我会觉得没有旅行而感到遗憾吗?
现在的我觉得,我可能不会。

就如《鬼怪》里说的,
因为天气好,
因为天气不好,
因为天气刚刚好,
每一天,都很美好。

Kundasang/Ranau - Kinabalu Pine Resort

Hmm, I think this is the very first accommodation that I have decided to post a shout out in my blog.

When I was planning for my trip in Kota Kinabalu, we were looking for a place to spend the night which is comfortable, near, and with a good view of mount KK after hiking the famous Kinabalu Mountain.

We kinda plan this trip with a short notice and we spent a decent amount of time in training and getting the right gears for the hike. However, we took leisure in planning the accommodation because we were undecided of what to do and some of us had different ideas as to what to do after the hike.

As usual, when there's lack of consensus, a lot of discussions were going on and at a certain point, I was so frustrated that I just gave in and let my friends decide on what to do because I have tried my best to accommodate everyone's needs and to coordinate with our travel agent.

Both of them were headstrong where I just couldn't take it anymore. However, I did remain composed and tried to settle it while luckily, one of my friends was very helpful and did her part into helping me to get things sorted out before our departure. It was finalized at last and we manage to get our accommodation in Kinabalu Pine Resort despite it was stated as fully book in the websites we checked. 

However, we managed to sort things out and the travel agent manage to book a room in this resort for us and I feel no regrets in paying extra for the stay
My money was definitely well spent!

I have always wanted to stay in a place with a terrace and it was a dream come true moment for me when I reached there. Furthermore, it has really good view and I managed to spend some time sitting in the terrace at night alone and enjoyed the serenity. I felt really calm despite just finished my hike and the weather was cold too. I like it so much except that it was really cold, which was something that I wasn't prepared for.

I think I will definitely revisit here because I seriously think that it's such a well maintained place with a very serene vibe and great scenery!!!
I'm amazed by how they are managing their place because both Kinabalu Park and the room here didn't have any smell that usually lingers in a wet and wood building.





If you're interested, I would strongly recommend you to book early and you can contact them through this website!

婚礼与红包

随着身边的朋友陆续结婚,我的父母也接到了一些老朋友的儿女的结婚请柬。
在帮助/聆听朋友筹备婚礼和出席婚礼后,我发现了一些事。
例如婚礼可以帮助我们看清很多人事物、筹备婚礼是一件很复杂和难搞的事情等等的事。
还有就是星期六出席朋友的午餐结婚自由餐时,
一位朋友说起了她的婚礼和要邀请那些人。
当一个朋友开玩笑的说不出席时,她说更好啊,她可以省起一个位子然后红包照收。
我就说,如果一开始就说不出席的人还需要给红包吗?
她说要啊,我们华人传统就是人不到,红包也要到啊~
我说,可是现在的人如果在初期邀请就说了不出席,
那红包不是必然啊,毕竟你一开始就没有预约席位。
还有的就是现在的人都喜欢透过脸书邀请,如果那些不出席都要包红包的话,那被邀请的人不就很惨?到底是要让我们这些人花多少钱在红包上啊?
当她说那她不邀请这位朋友出席了,我和这位朋友说:“其实更好啊,可以省红包钱。”
以前的我可能会介意为什么没有被邀请出席一些集会/派对,
可是对现在的我来说,其实这样更好,因为我不必为了送礼和衣着而烦恼。

至于写这篇的原因其实是想说一说“人不到,红包也要到”的观念。
我是在我父母的好朋友的请柬身上领悟到这一点的。
其实为什么以前的人会有“人不到,红包也要到”的观念大概是因为以前通讯不发达,
所以他们都会登门拜访他们想要邀请的客人去派喜帖。
我爸妈的着对好朋友就在一个星期日特意从芙蓉来到吉隆玻派喜帖的。
因为他们是很久的好朋友,所以他们今天特意到芙蓉赴约。
如果他们不得空,那当然要履行“人不到,红包也要到”的观念,毕竟别人都已经特意登门拜访派喜帖。
出于礼貌,人不到,红包也要到啊!
我觉得这是合理的。
而且我姐和我弟结婚时,我父母对一些亲戚朋友也是这样做。
相反的,在我们的年纪的这一代,我们会透过脸书或电话来做邀请和记录,
然后决定人数和桌数。
如果我们从来没有答应出席,更别说邀请的人没有当面邀请,
那我们还必须秉持着“人不到,红包也要到”的观念吗?
当然也有一些朋友有做到这一点,可是对我来说,这不是必然的。
可是我还是必须说一句,如果你有答应要出席可是最后出席不到,
*无论什么原因都好*
请您做到“人不到,红包也要到”,因为结婚的人真的会因为你而有所损失。
而您的红包只是在减少您造成的损失而已。

Postcard 不翼而飞事件

今天我和Jeng Mun, Chee Khong, 还有Ji Kwan一起去注册我们未来的公司。
Chee Khong再一次问了我们真的没有收到他从巴黎寄给我们的postcard吗?
大家都说没有。
他说他很心痛,因为它们很贵。而且是比较漂亮的,其他一起寄出比较普通的都有收到了。
我们的group有一个习惯,大家收到postcard都会拍照告诉寄postcard的人说我们收到了。
虽然这件事是CK比较心痛,可是我只是想记录下来我有过一张从巴黎寄出而没有收到的postcard.
而且他提了两次,所以他大概真的很在意吧。
CK,虽然没有收到postcard,可是还是谢谢你的心意!
但是我还是不知道为什么我们收不到。因为用过的postcard还可以recycle吗?

Update: 昨天(24/8/2017)终于收到了CK寄来的postcard。
大约用了2个月的时间吧。。。因为寄出的日期是29/6.
我第一时间就告诉了他。Mia也在同一天收到。

其实这还真的是很特别的一张postcard,而且也和之前的不同。
Ck,谢啦!

Turning 31 and another BIG project coming its way

I'm turning 31 this year and age seemed to affect me more and more because it seems to me that my life is not going anywhere and there are so many things that I would like to achieve but yet to be achieved.

Although I have been traveling quite frequently this year, but I just feel like there are a lot more places that I would like to go. 

Maybe because I wasn't able to travel last year which makes me wanting to travel so much this year.
On the side note, I bought my BKK and CM tickets last year.

Then, my friends and I have been planning to climb the mount KK early this year but it stayed in the planning stage because two of my friends weren't able to confirm and they are concerned about whether we have enough time to train ourselves and to get ready for it.
Until recently, I pushed my friend to make a decision because I think that now is my fittest time to climb especially I'm not getting any younger. It's now or never!
Because I'm the youngest now and while I was typing this blog, I'm getting older and older by seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years.

So I took the initiative to contact the agent that my friend gave and kinda pushed my friends to make a decision. Another friend did help and also booked the air tickets today! So, I'm going to climb mount KK this September and I have to train hard to do it. I have a little more than 3 months to prepare for it and I read mixed reviews online on how soon you should prepare for the climb. Since I have been going to the gym regularly since last year, I wasn't that worry but I am aware than I have to increase the intensity of my training so that I can have a smooth climb.

My brother said that I have had a very happening first half of the year and maybe I should considered getting married soon as well.
Hmm, I was wondering how can a person be that spontaneous with their marriage?

However, I was thinking maybe because of my health issues, I have been more and more spontaneous nowadays that I just want to take things easy and enjoy life while I can.
I used to stress myself out so much in the past in almost everything and I still do  sometimes, but I was able to tell myself to take things easy because I don't want to get sick anymore.

Wan Yin asked if I only have one wish, what would it be, I said I want to be healthy until my last breath. Because I realized health really is the most important thing in life that many people take it for granted. I will not for now, and hopefully, not in the future as well.
