Merdeka!

It was the 50th anniversary of Malaysia's Merdeka yesterday. And also the 17th anniversary of My Merdeka! Breaking myself off from Malaysia to the Land of the Long White Clouds. My gosh.... It was 17 years ago when I touched down in NZ with my family.. 17 years ago! Wow...

I still remember the flight like it was just yesterday, when we first step foot on NZ soil! Going into the beginning of autumn, feeling that cold wind on blowing on the face! Going home to a new house, starting all over in a new school and getting use to not having 2 maids to clean up after me. Wow.. 17 years ago...

That was when my teachers where always surprise that I could speak English, but still ask me questions very slowly. And people were always asking me "Where is Malaysia". It never ceases to amaze me that they know where Thailand is and where Singapore is, but don't know where Malaysia is. Wow, 17 years ago....
