Ok, I know I should be preparing for my paper tomorrow but I can’t help but blog about this.

My cousin Sonia called last night, ecstatic over her visit to KL next month—she’ll be spending 7 days with us in KL from 12th of Dec onwards—and she called to plan all the exciting stuff she’ll be doing throughout the duration of her visit.

 i.e. shopping, shopping for shoes, shopping for clothes, shopping for bags, shopping, shopping and more shopping…

Needless to say, I was glad she rang up all the way from Kuching, Sarawak. It was good to hear her voice again. She’ll be studying in the U.K. for the next three to four years and I’ll be in Adelaide during the last two years of her studies so it’ll be a long time before we see each other again.

After getting off the phone, I started to reminisce over the early years of our childhood. I must say, we spent most of it arguing and fighting and getting on each other’s nerves.

Let’s just say we weren’t exactly big fans of each other.

But somehow as we got older all the animosity just faded and now we’re closer than ever. She’s now one of my closest relatives, apart from my other cousin, Jason.

We’ve been through a lot together but we’ve always leaned on each other despite the distance.

I’m going to miss her.

So, I plan to spend those 7 days I have with her to the fullest and cherish every minute of it!

Ok, gotta go study now.

Call me shameless but I don’t care.

After months of emotional turmoil and stress, our second issue is finally out!

Fools like me
O We love blindly
And the cracks don’t count
It’s gotta break in front of me
