Yuhuuuuu...! Anyone home?



Missed the blog.

Missed writing.

The meaning of life is more apparent now.

Season of The Empty Nest

It is another hour before the day is over.


I think it was in 2009 when I decided to privatise my blog. I was getting uncomfortable knowing some people I know in real life were reading it.



The blog was a life away from "life". The "life" which I trying to manoeuvre with three little kids whose life were dependent on me.



The blog was an avenue for me to vent my deepest feelings.



It was also a place where I could express joy while raising my Brood post divorce. It was a bittersweet experience. Looking back, I honestly do not know how I did it. At that time, somehow Allah gave me so much mental and emotional strength. Physically I was strong, active and always on the go - so having to take care of 3 kids was not really a burden to me. As a matter of fact, I enjoyed the life we had. I was happy. We were happy.

Well, of course Bibik was with us then. THAT helps a lot. And arwah Bapak stayed with me most of the time, so my Brood had the father figure that was denied from their own.


What happened since then.


My Brood has grown.


Abang is working after graduating from university last year. Kakak is in second year university and Adik is in Form Five. Both the boys are with me at home. Kakak stayed on campus a mere 30 minutes away.


As they are busy growing up, I was slowly growing old. I passed the half century milestone. 
With my Brood are now busy finding their own place in this world, I am finding time to amuse myself. Few years ago, I went back to school and earned myself an MBA. I did it for my own self satisfaction. And also, to amuse Abang who just entered college about the same time.

 And I started travelling. I would go to Matta Fair every year to find travel deals. And I travel quite a bit every year. Sometimes I'd bring the Brood but most of time I go with my travel kaki. I also travelled solo once to Jogja. Semua orang tak percaya I did it. Yup, I did.



I also remained single. No plans whatsoever to change the status (quo). Tapi orang tua kata cakap siang pandang-pandang. Mana tahu kot Kanda Bolkiah hantar pinangan, takkan nak tolak pulak kannn....



There. 



How's that for a start?
