Hometown Christmas

am back in UM. Tired, exhaustion beyond imagination.
Anyway during my stay in my hometown, I did some memorable thing. The food, the places, old school, ex mates, football mates, the field where I got my eyes whacked, the school where I left many hearts broken (teacher's especially).

Michelle, Conelius, Jessie, Betty

The classroom where it all started, the corridor, the walkway, canteen. The blanket of time was taken away, uncovering all the memories. Heartbreaks,cries,happiness,pride. It was all there.

The food of course, cannot be compared. No where in the world can you find another place like Sibu. Its' distinct Kampua, Air LUPA CINTA, Kueh Tiaw Tomato...

The roadsigns, very different from those you see in West Malaysia

There was this Christmas Procession, really grand event where all 20-30 churches in Sibu participated, and everyone walked to spread the Good News.

Christmas day was also Carolyn's birthday.. turning 21 with 6 days of 2009 remaining, and chances are that someone's gonna turn into 22 on the 1st of January 2010.

Once a year we celebrate
With stupid hats and plastic plates
The fact that you were able to make
An other trip around the sun

And the whole gang gathers round
With gifts and laughter to abound
And we let out a joyful sound
And sing that stupid song

Happy birthday!
Now you're one year older
Happy birthday!
Your life still isn't over
Happy birthday!
You did not accomplished much
But you didn't die this year
I guess that's good enough

So let's drink to your fading health
And hope you don't remind yourself
The chance of finding fame and wealth
Decrease with every year

Does it feel like you're doing laps
And eating food and taking naps
And hoping that someday perhaps
Your life will hold some cheer

Happy birthday!
What have you done that matters?
Happy birthday!
You're starting to get fatter
Happy birthday!
It's downhill from now on
Try not to remind yourself
Your best years are all gone

If cryogenics were all free
Then you could live like Walt Disney
And live for all eternity
Inside a block of ice

But instead your time is set
This is the only life you get
And though it hasn't ended yet
Sometimes you wish it might

Happy birthday!
You wish you had more money
Happy birthday!
Your life's so sad it's funny
Happy birthday!
How much more can you take?
But your friends are hungry
So just cut the stupid cake

Happy birthday!
Happy birthday!

Carolyn Christine Harry, Happy birthday~!~
