I am Back!

Time really flies fast when you are having fun. I reluctantly bid farewell to my family and friends after 7 weeks vacation in Malaysia. The journey back was exhausting, as usual. I walked pass the custom and immigration like a zombie and finally reach PA late Thursday. I am still trying to get over the jetlag and man that is not easy at all. I will feel sleepy by 3.00pm everyday and I will take a nap until around 10.00pm feeling hungry and then stay awake until 4.00am. I am still having the sign of the virus I got back home and my bones still aches a lot especially on my legs. I already make appointment to see my doctor next week and hopefully she is able to find out what is wrong with me. For this few days I am doing nothing but sleep and rest.

The trip home was really good (except for the sick part) and I had a great time with my family. This trip for me is more of spending time with my family especially my nieces and nephews. They grow up so fast and one after another is leaving to further their study somewhere. It’s hard for an old lady like me to keep up with them. Another highlight of my visit home is to meet up with some bloggers like Cat, Sue, Ummi and Elin. I had a wonderful time meeting up with all of them.

The eating was fantastic, It is hard to beat the ready availability of SO MUCH GOOD FOOD every where, at any time of the day. One thing I notice about us Malaysian, we eat at every hour of the day. Everywhere you go no matter what time you will see restaurants or stalls pack with people eating. All the eating was a bit intense and after all that indulging my body is probably grateful that I am back to simpler options around here. So you will see some lighter recipes at my food blog :)

I bought a lot of cookbooks and very little food stuffs since I am able get it easily here in PA and New York. I did bought quite a bit of snacks but had to leave some behind as my suitcases were overweight again. I need to seriously think of getting those weightless suitcases. Talking about overweight suitcase, they charged me $50.00 for an access of 4 freaking pounds at PA airport when I depart.

It’s around 2.00am now and I better go to bed. Hopefully life will be back to normal again soon. See ya!
