Relatively Strangers

This is what happens when you've been living in Sabah for 19 years and in that time span, rarely flew back to West Malaysia to visit your blood relatives. Sometimes I wish my Dad could've decided to migrate to West Malaysia earlier:

Gosh. I so know what you mean. Thankfully my mum stopped doing that years ago. Why not tell her how it makes you feel? I'm sure she'll understand :)

Haha, I used to have "strangers" saying to me "Wah long time didn't see, so big already" in any so called family events, but silently i will say "who the hack are you.. I had never seen you before"

Just hate that feeling.

Oh.. poor thing. I do know how that feels. I was from Sabah too and my grandmother and all my cousins were in KL. When i first moved to KL when I was 11 i felt really left out. My cousins were so closed to my grandma coz they grew up with her. Till now I'm not close to my grandma tho everything is too late now. But at least I can say my cousin is now my friend.

Happy Chinese New Year!
