He's back!

Oh! Let me tell you how glad I am that Lan is back!!! It was like high school romance! LOL! Butterflies in my stomach and smiles just keep hanging on my face! It was as if the flood-gate of joy being opened when I saw him again at the train station!

We talked and talked. He fascinated me with his stories of his Montreal's trip. He said one day he will definitely bring me there for a holiday. Sure, love, anywhere in the world as long as it's with you, I'd go! After the stories, we talked about our feelings... We feel exactly the same about not being with each other. Gosh... he's literally my life! :)

Anyhow, I am so glad and thankful to God that Lan's back safe and sound (although right now he's beyond tired!). I am so proud of him for the two presentations he did! I am sure he did very well on those two! I am swelling with proud to see that his work is published by one of the top -academic- publishers along with other famous and talented Computer Scientists! What…

Let's talk about Liverpool

Inspired by Arman's post about San Fransisco, the city he is fond of, I'll write about my journey here in Liverpool.
I arrived in Liverpool (and the United Kingdom) for the first time on 17 September 2002. Never in my life before I dared to dream that I'd be given the chance to live and experience UK! It was overwhelming!
It started when I was doing my high-school final exams... I could not make up my mind of which Australian Universities I'd like to apply to. And so, I had been praying all those time to God to show me where to go, which path am I to take. I still remember very clearly the moment when He decided to tell me where to go. It was on a weekday, both my brother was doing homework and I was studying for a Maths exam, each in our own room. We left the door open, since our room face each other, so we can clearly see what each other were doing and we had, now and then, conversation in between our business. Then, suddenly, out of nowhere, I heard this very clear au…


I was touched deeply when Lan sent me a text message yesterday, saying that he is missing me and home. Ah... our little home. It might not be posh, just a little sort-of flat with only a bedroom (which is also the living room and the study room), a kitchen and a bathroom full with its own flaws and far from the kind of place we both want to live in. However, we grew to love it over the 2-years we've been living in it. It's our little home, the home where at the end of the day, when we return, we can say 'at last... we're home.' It's the little cocoon, where we both feel most comfortable in, just the both of us. :)

Yes, I miss home too... because right now our home is incomplete, without Lan being in there, it feels hollow, as if it's missing something; an element that makes it our little warm home. I wonder whether anybody ever feels like that too?

I am thankful to God that I am learning to appreciate Lan's presence more through this temporary separation.…

Life without him

Happy Monday, everyone! I have been lonely in the weekend. It's just feel so awkward having the flat all by myself, strangely quiet to me! Good thing, Lan texts me every now and then, to let me know he arrived safely and tiredly. Yesterday, he had his first out of 2 presentations he is supposed to give. He texted me right after it finished. Oh Lord, please keep him safe and sound. I am really not used to being alone like this any more... I am wishing that time would just flies fast to Sunday, the day I will see him again...
Life is just too damn boring without him! Despite of the fights we have every now and then, gosh, I love him to bits! It's like falling in love again, except it's stronger than the first one... I am going insane of missing him, period.

Well, I tried many things to distract myself and occupy myself. First thing was to leave the kitchen and bathroom spotless. That took half of my day yesterday, quicker than I thought, until I felt the aching on my fingers&#…
