01 August 2010 -Sunday– It was a long day with my colleagues; we were guided on how to go in and out of our work place via Malaysian public transpo : bus, ferry and cab. From the main land, we went to Penang Island and explored a bit of their malls, hotels, public markets and the bay area. We ate dinner at hawkers in Gurney Drive then came home to our temporary villas dead tired but nonetheless happy.
When I checked my emails, I first read my wife’s. It has attachments that made me miss them more– photos recently taken in Tagaytay City the morning after I left the country. My wife and our kid together with my in-laws were brought there by our relatives. It was the very first major homesickness I felt. I cannot help but think that it could have been more fun if I was with them on those moments.
Would you not miss your son if you’re abroad and he tries the zip line even if it was for photo op only?
Gabby’s facial expression looked so real; artistahin?
Although I constantly communicate with them via SMS, calls, emails, and Skype, nothing beats being with them personally.
I miss them so much.
I love you, Tina & Gabby!
