Goodbye, For Now.

My month back home is coming to an end. Come tomorrow morning, it'll be time for me to board the (slightly) dreaded 7am plane ride back to San Jose once again.

Where did the time go? It feels like just yesterday, I was giddily boarding the plane back to Kuala Lumpur from SFO. My parents had no clue that I was coming home for a bit and I was really excited to surprise them! 

I wish that I would've had more time to spend with friends and family. Although, I must say, I'm really happy that I got to use my time wisely by meeting up with those who really matter me. As someone who's love language is quality time (and words of affirmation, incase you were wondering), I felt so loved every time someone was willing to have a meal or just hang with me.

This past month has been amazing. New memories were made in places that once held somewhat bitter memories. I also got to eat all the good food that I missed with the people that I missed the most. Not only that, I also got to experience life back home once again. 

There are several things that I'm grateful for this past month - starting with Daddy Yap's willingness to skip golf to spend time with me. Not only that, he finally trusted me with his babycar (although he did almost get a heart attack every time I tried to park it). I'm also grateful towards Mommy Yap for lending her car to me whenever I needed it, and for also constantly trying to make my favourite foods while I'm back here. I love the both of you sooooo much! (:

Of course, with good times comes bad times too. They were, however, pretty minute, so they're not really worth a mention. But overall, I'm glad that I made the decision to come home, even if it was just for a little bit. This summer back home was so different compared to last summer. I'm actually finding it very hard to leave this time around!

Malaysia, I'll miss you and all that you have to offer. Keep my loved ones safe and I'll see you in a year, <3

Love, Ainsley.
