“Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self-starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don’t waste it with a false start or no start at all. You were not born to fail.” ~by Og Mandino

Bye, My Dearests...

After a great lunch with my family, it’s going to be the time to prepare for leaving. To be honest, I feel reluctant to leave my hometown. I love my hometown and my family here and I feel I ain’t ready to go back to the lonely life in JB. I mean, life without in accompany of any of my family member. This is sometimes dispiriting. Anyway, I shouldn’t upset my family; I have to keep my smile on face instead of burst into tears sadly. This is sometimes hard too.

This is my bro - Ah Yew, who always very shy and nerd when posting in front of camera.

Nguang's siblings. Yohoo!!

This is my dearest father. He is the one who keep motivates and encourages me when I was down. He is the strongest man in the world.

Just follow me, dad. VICTORY!! I'm glad to have a great father like him.

Father and the daughters. Say CHEERS!

Now, father and the sons. Yeah!

Sis and I. I'm looked so skinny when next to her.

My youngest bro and I. Why I'm so short??

Hey. What are you doing? I can't reach your hands!!! Put them down!!!

Another few photos before I get in to the boarding room. My heart starts to burst in sadness - I'm zillion times of unwilling to part with them.

No matter how reluctant I am, I still have to go.

Lastly, good bye, Bintulu... *sob*

Being Together

This is our first time to celebrate mum and dad’s birthdays outside. I will be leaving to JB this evening (even though I don’t heartily feel to leave yet) and today is mum’s birthday in lunar calendar; dad will have his one just after a week. So, I proposed to celebrate together outside for this year. Yohooo~ I honestly tell you that I keep looking forward to having some activity with all my family members turning out together. Believe me, it would always be really fun, warm and sweet when you all being together and enjoying the same event.

Oh yes. I think this would be the first time of the year that I went out with all my younger bros and sis in the same time. We went to the church together for Sunday worshipping in the morning and bought the birthday cake afterwards. We had been browsing through four bakery shops and finally decided to pick up this lovely birthday cake which came with the strawberry flavour for our dearest parents. Mum and dad, do you like it? *wink*

Lit up the candles.

Some amusing snapshots when we dedicated a birthday song to them.

From their faces, we knew that they were really enjoying our special arrangement for them today. Mum and dad, Happy Birthday!!! Many many love from your children, we all love you so much.

Each of us had written down a few greeting words and words from our heart especially for our parents in these two lovely cards.

Mum and dad, did you feel touched when going through row by row the words on the cards?

Traditional chicken mushroom soup and the long-life noodles are the must-have-dish for Chinese especially at birthdays and the first day of Chinese New Year, which signifies good luck and the longevity to the person consuming them. Here there were, for every of my dearest family members.

He was starving and couldn't wait to start. Haha~

My dearest parents and I.
Papa and mama, I love you!!!

A Bay Horse

Remember the horse that I mentioned in one of my posts in June? There it is; another horse I met this afternoon after a few days coming back to my hometown. This horse is belonged to the same owner who has a stable somewhere on the hill opposites our house. We all think that he might be running a business with these horses, like horse riding, somehow.

It’s sprinkling outside and the horse was grazing in the field next to our house again. I tried to approach it many times with my D90, my little brother was holding the umbrella for me, I just wanted to get as close as possible so that I could capture some close-up pictures of it.

The horse was pretty tame and quiet initially. However, it turned excited suddenly and light ran toward us. We got really shocked and quickly ran away. We didn’t want to be hit by its horny hooves. It stopped after a short move and gazed at us. I guessed this naughty creature must be curious about when I holding the D90 to snap it just now.
