A new beginning and sad goodbyes

6.02PM. Western Australia. Canning Vale.

Yes, that's the time and place where I'm finally getting my butt down to type this post. Not that I didn't want to type it, it's just that I had to get everything more or less settled down before I get to blogging again.

So I'm finally here back home in Perth after endless countdowns month after month, day after day. After waiting so long, think of my family back home, I AM finally back home. Together with my family and my other half, my life is pretty complete.

I'm sad though, to leave behind another family I've come to have. That is, the people whom I've been living with for the past 5 months have already come to be another family and another home where I can go to. Hey mao, take care of your brothers and your parents alright!

There are, however, a list of people whom I would like to mention in this post.

To my brothers Jonathan, Joel and Jason: You are the only brothers I have known in this life. I'll cherish the times when we played together when we were younger and I'm sad we wouldn't be able to hang out and go fishing anymore. Hey Joe, thanks for looking out for me, don't worry I'll watch out for myself here. Hey Jonny boy, time to get serious alright! I hope you get your SIA job and when you really get to fly here, we'll go fishing! ;P Hey Jason, well, take care of mama and your lil' sister okay.

To my little couzie Jess: Hey jess you skinny pok! Have fun in Singapore kay. Don't party so much! Yeah I know it's so ironic when I'm leaving when you are finally coming! But don't worry I'll be back ;P

To my buddies Kevin, Keong, Jer,Kit, Wyne, Jimmy, Des, Harvin, Zhou, Brian, Tong, Nic, Beng: Hey guys, sec sch was a heck load of fun aye. Basketball, mahjong, jamming or just hanging out and chillin, you name it. 15 and 16 were the best years of my life, even in the face of the O levels. I'll miss you people..

To my other buddies Sherwin, Sok, Ken, Fi: Hey guys! It was fun hanging out together in poly man and I hope we'll have the chance to do it again (which is abit hard since Fi is like in Brisbane) I really miss us hanging out together. Hey Sherwin, thanks for being a great friend, role model and project partner man. Study hard in Uni alright.

To Cheng and Yenny: Hey, time really flies like it's been 14 years since we've met and I'm really glad to have you two as long time friends.

To my army buddies Desmond, Qungen and the other nice people I've met within my time in PMB. Hey Des! Well, 2 years flew past pretty quickly aye? But I wonder why it seemed like forever when we were waiting to ORD. Talking about it, I still can't believe I'm typing this post and I've already ORDed. Anyways, I'm glad we ended up in the same office. Training was fun thinking back and it was nice hanging out together and learning stuff like photoshop and MS Office from you. Study and work hard in NUS okay, and good luck in whatever you do!

Heya Qungen, thanks for being a great friend man and a huge load of help during my time in PMB. It was good having you around and having someone trustworthy to talk to. Plus, I miss the makaning times after neuro. Too bad everythings kinda screwed up in PMB now huh... don't worry gonna ORD soon! And when I come back we'll go to Tamako kay. I'm sure Cindy will give me a complimentary plate of unagi tawara...

And I'm glad to have known people like Richie and Jia hao and I want to thank all the officers like Dr Tim, Dr G, Dr Tm and Dr Alan for their patience and guidance during my time in PMB.

Dr Tim, thanks for looking out for us alright. It was nice working together and yeah... chill.. don't stress so much. Dr G, you're a great guy and it's nice to have known you. (Hey, look out for ZM okay *winkz*) Hey Dr Tm, it's been really great and enjoyable working under you for that short period of time and I'm sad to have to go so soon. Don't worry though, you have a good guy under you but please take care of him okay!

Well, it's only 2 years and we all will have to move on. Endure!

So that's about it. What about this blog, then? Well, Yummie dummieS will be saying it's goodbyes. University will be a hectic and I wouldn't have the time to blog anymore. This past year have been great though. I've come to know so many nice places to eat and so many floggers and food blogs like D, Evan, ieat, the baker, etc and the people who frequently post comments on my blog. Thanks guys! :) Have a good life!

No more? C'mon!!! Perth has nice grub too? But I do understand, physiotherapy isn't easy. I actually wanted to start my blog when I was doing uni in Perth too but just couldn't find the time (perhaps the will too) to start it. All the best mate! And if you do have a turn of heart, your readers will always be here =)

YD! So sad ... turn your blog into a book maybe? Anyways, my best wishes for your studies!!!

And er, I just tagged you actually. That's alright, all your foodie places and exploits should be shared and enjoyed.

Don't bother to do anything further, just go and concentrate on your studies!
