Edit: Added an excerpt from Kyle Xy Season 2 Episode "Hello" aired on 10/3/2007.
Kyle: (voice-over) The road we travel is unpredictable. Sometimes it's smooth, and sometimes it's filled with bumps. But if we're lucky, we find people to travel with us. Our journey is really a search, a yearning for love and connection, and sometimes it leads us back home.
I have..... only a few days left in Australia.
My one year Graduate Development Programme has been completed, and since I was under a temporary residence, it was near to impossible to find a new job. Under my current circumstances, I would require an employer willing to sponsor my stay, and such is too much to ask for. I tried, and I could not get one in time. This sucks.
My first sponsorship to work as a graduate in Australia was a miracle itself, since almost everyone else would either already possess a permanent residence, or in the process of getting one. Do not even start asking why I could not get my permanent residence like everyone else did. It is a long, twisted story that could take centuries to be told.
Thus, I have not much of a choice, but to accept the situation as it is, and try to leave my beloved Perth behind, for now.
I will be flying back to Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday, 18th March, have a brief stay for a week and home to Kuching on Thursday 27th March. If any of you beautiful people want to organize a meet up or anything, do let me know through my email address:
Unfortunately I do not have a local contact number yet, but I shall get one arranged as soon as I am back in Malaysia.
This is not the last of Perth, and I am going to fight my way back here. I have done it before, and I will do it again.
Looking at the bright side, I do get the chance to spend time with my family in Kuching, and catch up with some really great friends back home.
Another interesting pattern to note, I came to Perth on 17th March 2007, and I will be leaving Perth on 17th March 2008. Coincidence? Maybe, or maybe not.
I just can't help it but keep asking myself..
Why do all good things come to an end?
Side Note: This blog will become rather inactive when I am back in Malaysia, since I do not have a broadband connection back home. Time is difficult for me, so do bear with me, and stay with me in your thoughtful prayers.
