I didn't quite quite realised this, and I was very surprised it took me two whole years for me to notice it.

The thing is, I think, for the rest of my life, I will not spend much time at home anymore.

I mean, since I joined college, I spend 6 days a week at school.

And of the one day I stay at what I called "home", I spend over 8 hours sleeping, few hours learning Chinese calligraphy, some time for my meals, a bit more for my weekly laundry, packing...

And oh! It's time to go to school.

See what I mean?

Well, after graduation, I don't expect myself to spend a whole year rotting at "home". Maybe I'll take a month's holiday, then I'll probably pack my stuff and leave for good. I mean, as an Electrical or Electronic Engineer, I don't expect to get the jobs I want in Klang. AMD has labs in Singapore and factories in Penang, that may be a good deal for me. Or maybe I can pursue my passion for railway transits, again, not in Klang.

Anyway, you get my point. I think that's growing up. Sooner or later we'll leave home for good. It's good I get to start small, leave home for few days for a week. I've heard of some people crying their eyeballs out of their sockets after being sent to a university in Mars East Malaysia.

For those who are not used to the sudden change, suit yourselves - change is in the must-list of growing up.

Are you sure you shouldn't stop calling that place "home"?


  1. in the last 7 months. i went home for a week.

    nowadays it's so troublesome to say 'i'm goin back to the hostel' so i just say 'i'm goin home'

  2. lol yeah. exactly same with my case. at first when people say "i'm going home" i'll always ask "you mean your house here or hometown...?". and now i'll just say "i'm going home", regardless of whichever one i'm going to

    the situation's worse with you, obviously

  3. home is where i live now..
    my mother's place was always my mother's place never home
    my in law's place was always my in law's place never home LOL

  4. lol poor you...

    eh i thought you shifted to new place?
