January 26, 2007
I sometimes wonder if to be emotionally detached from family back home is healthy. I’ve not had any problem adjusting in different environments but I do feel the need to recharge by being in the company of my family. I so do miss the company. However, I totally love my independence. All the missings will make me grow closer to my siblings, I suppose.
My sister sent me the latest pics of her kids yesterday. I’ve met the eldest one, Victoria, when she was still a baby. That was Christmas in 2000. I’m yet to meet Andrew and Joseph in person. I’ll see if ive got enough dosh this year to travel to the states. Andrew looks more Bidayuh than mix-race. Joseph has down syndrom but he has been such a lovely baby. I’m sure with all the social support and the love he’s getting, he will be able to as healthy as other kids his age. Victoria has grown to be such a pretty young lady. I’m sure if she would have had the company of my another niece, Claire, they would be like bestfriends and all. Like Victoria, Claire is the only girl. She has the priviledge to be spoilt by her aunt and uncle (yours trully) since she’s in Malaysia. Her brothers Kiwan, Kinua and Ethan are each quite a character. Good to see that they are all so different. Kiwan, the bookworm and artist. Kinua, the more sportive and energetic, Ethan , still trying to find his forte but is quite a chatterbox.
Ah well, they are growing very fast. By this time next year, Kiwan might be as tall as me haha. Anyway, I’ve got to sacrifice such comfort in being with my family to fulfil my dreams.
My sister in the states sent me her mug shot a few days ago and seriously we look so alike, especially when I had long hair. But of course, my sister is prettier lol
