Okay, not really a big event, but this marks the end of my idle days in Kuching. Got to get back on track and study. I will be leaving Kuching tomorrow. If I don’t sleep soon I’m going to miss the flight. Anyways, a recap of my holidays and my days in Kuching:
I arrived back at Kuching International Airport only to find it in ruins. It took me a whole hour just to get pass the immigration and to get my bags.
It was raining more in Kuching than in Nilai. And since I’m at home with a car, I get more freedom to go out. But I still miss the days back at Inti where we would go out for supper at 1 or 2 in the morning. Since we stayed at the hostel, asking people out was just a sms away.
I launched my site (this site) a few days after I came back. Then it was taken down a while ago because it crashed my host’s server. But so far so good.
At the beginning of December, my dad moved factories, so we went to help out. Most of our December was spent at the factory, doing odd jobs like stacking up supplies, cleaning things, making shelves, doing wiring stuff, creating a LAN, and just admiring the sheer ingeniuty of electricity, not to mention getting a few goodies.
And I did make my car a safer machine to drive. I personally rewired the stereo with extensive use of heatshrink. Now I don’t suddenly find my lights not working or my stereo turning on and off and the signal lights going crazy.
Getting chased by the police.
Helped some of my friends out with their cars too; installing neons, adjusting spark timings, intercooler polishing, repairing subs, just to mention a few.
But most of the time was probably spent in bed. Usually don’t wake up till 12pm.
Probably the most notable thing that happened during this time was me getting the news that I have passed the MAS interview. You can find the article here. Thanks Joel for the comments. And thanks everyone for their congratulations. I went through the medical checkup and I guess I failed that part. I did not get their letter of offer or anything. Everything just died there. Well, I’ve gotten over the disappointment a while ago. Life goes on, with or without MAS. Sorry for those who thought I was going to sabotage their flights hehe that’s not going to happen anymore.
Then there was the motorkhana at MJC orgainzed by kaichia.com. It was the first time where I can test my car’s potential to the max, legally. And we clocked the fastest time! Drifting (or pulling the handbrake through the corners) really helped a lot. And I have been practising. In fact, I “slid” into my lorong just now. It was too tempting: wet ground, big road, no cars, last chance to drift till I come back for CNY. The road was like glass. There was no sound. The car just glided smoothly. It was fun.
Not to mention all the times we went out for supper or dinner or to the movies. Thanks people for showing up and making everything worthwhile. That’s what coming back to Kuching is all about. We get to hang out at the familiar places with all the familiar faces. Nothing beats that. And the potluck we had recently. That was great.
So it has been a very eventful time at Kuching, as expected. I’m leaving tomorrow, but I’ll be back. Soon enough.
Bedroom football. Nothing beats this. Continue reading
