Honey, I'm home!

You guys, I'm home after two whole years! For the last two weeks I've been soooo busy. The week leading up to my flight home, I was busy sorting out my withdrawal from the University and after that I was busy packing up two years of life into two suitcases. 

All those tiny islands make my country :)

I came home on Friday night and it's been a little chaotic since then too. I've been visiting family, catching up with friends, and cleaning out and settling into our room which we rented out before we left and was pretty much falling apart by the time we got here. I don't even know how it got so bad in only two years. 

So many stuff was broken. Mostly really weird stuff. Like I found that near my closet, two fist sized chunks of wall was missing. Walls of concrete and bricks!! And the can inside the very expensive wastepaper bin was gone. How do you break a tin can enclosed in another tin can?! And the mattress had gone a bit stinky because I don't think they knew sheets were meant to be washed! Fortunately we flipped it over and it's okay for now but I'm definitely buying a new one as soon as I get a job. 

So home is very stuffy and crowded and...uh...just really really small. I mean the country and the city. But I really don't mind because now I'm so close to the people I love. 

I am going to miss shopping malls, and fast food places, and the really good friends I made over the two years I stayed in Malaysia. What I am not going to miss is the really old place we lived in. Especially the suspicious hand print which was a little too high up on the wall directly above the door of the bathroom. That was creepy. 

Last day in Malaysia

I miss writing and reading blogs. My email inbox is full of unread messages and my Bloglovin is overflowing with unread posts. I will catch up eventually.

In the mean time, I just wanted to tell you I miss you guys and please don't forget me!

In other news, I forgot to put salt in the flat bread I made today. And the spicy tuna I made to go with it! I saved the tuna but there was no way of saving the bread. Also, I had to paste a small picture on a job application form for my husband and there was no glue so I used clear nail polish, and it worked! So I'm thinking I'm not losing my mind just yet.

What have you been doing lately?
