A ride away & 5 hours in the coach, we arrived. With me were just 2 hand carry luggage.
That was 8 years back. Uni came & went... and I continued being based in the Lion City for another 5 years or so.
In between those times, I came back to homeland, Malaysia, quite frequent... mainly for business. Kay El & the rest of Klang Valley became a regular destination - at some point, nearly every other week.
The trips were so frequent that some friends wondered why I don't just move up north. At the initial stage, it was rather okay & bearable.
But too much of time in the journeys (and not to mention the pack - unpack) & , that took a bit of a toll...
So by early this year, I was contemplating - maybe I should save time & hassle... & just move to KL. But moving to another city is not an overnight decision...
There were many other factors that ran through my mind. For eg. though moving to KL may seem like a 'homecoming', but it's actually not so - for I've yet to stay in KL before. Yes, there's lots of similarity between these 2 cities, but still the differences is quite contrasting.
Anyway, that is just one of the many factors I considered... and considered I did.
After some months of considering then thinking, I finally decided to move after 8 years - yes to Kay El. Some of my friends, or should I say many of them were surprised... many never ever imagining me living in this capital city of Malaysia.
But hey, I'm here now. How long I'll be here - I don't know. There are some other places that I'd like to go someday... but so far, I'm falling in love with this city more each day & am calling it home :)
