Family matters & Internship!

I love being back in Sabah, I know so much more people here whereas I'm only familiar with a small group of people back in Terengganu... Anyway, moving on, I just came back from a kenduri for my late uncle. As somber as the event was, it was great seeing all my aunties and uncles again! And their friends who I haven't seen in ages! I'm not going to go into details here but it was heck-a fun, they did take pictures, I can't wait to see how they turn out, haha. But knowing how unphotogenic I am, it's likely to turn out odd.

Internship starts on Monday, I'm looking forward to it. I hope I make a good first impression!!! It's at a research center in Likas, I have my fingers crossed! As unflattering as my degree is I really hope to make something out of it so my efforts in getting it will not go to waste. I mean, I don't really care what I do, as long as I can bear it, haha. Don't do this at home kids. I'm no role model.

Bad News

My mum called me earlier when I was sleeping. Apparently an uncle died and while I think it's nice she thinks I should know, sometimes I feel she has a morbid delight in telling me the details when people die. It's like she's pleased that they conked out. I will never understand this woman.

My uncle, R.S. died in Singapore following complications during an angioplasty procedure. His funeral will be later in KL. When a death happens to that family, it hits them really hard because my grandfather's side is rather expansive, theirs is much smaller with my grandfather's brother only having 3 kids and and an adopted auntie. Aunty E.'s lots of fun, she's married and divorced enough to fill one hand, nicknamed 'The Black Widow'. But now she's happily married to this really wonderful Uncle H. who I've always thought was really nice and adopted a son.

Anyway, I don't know why I'm jabbering on about this family, but they're always so intere…

*trumpets* Vanessa's Resurrected Her Blog!

Hey there to the non-existent readers of my blog!

Anyway, this post is just to commemorate my very first post on my new (back from the dead) blog! Yay! I realized that I had a blog lying around since 2004 when I tried to get this domain name and it was taken... And when I finally figured out my password and attached it to my Google account, I realized what a god-awful little high school brat I was back then looking at my old posts. I was pretty emo and pessimistic on life and I vented a lot on that blog. Nobody reads it, I know, and my reader's comments were all full of spam! Anyway, I revived this blog to celebrate who I've become today, a much happier and confident person, I'm so glad those dark teenage years are over! :-)

My interests are completely different now than from way back when so I decided to revamp the whole thing and get rid of everything. I think I'm going to refrain from commenting on other people's blogs to keep this blog private for the meantime, w…
