Father’s Day

As we all know, Father’s Day was just last weekend. You can see the uncountable numbers of photos up on social media celebrating this special occasion for and with our respective greatest hero. Some do not celebrate this day, but that does not mean that the fathers mean nothing.

My dad is no exception, he’s the greatest father I can only imagine. I wouldn’t trade it with anyone else, ever. We might not be super rich, but, we were and are happy in our small family home. Time is what we want. My dad gave all his time to us when we were young, even right up til this day, nothing changes.

I can even write a novel about it. But let’s not go into that. So I was seeing all those Father Day’s pictures. It’s great of course, until, you see pictures of these men, certain men that celebrate like it’s a perfect family and everyone’s happy. That’s the ideal. But, when you know that these certain type of men are not good fathers. They cheat on their wives again and again, and it makes me cringe. All the time. No matter how happy the family looks, whether the wives are aware about it is another matter. However, these disrespectful men do not deserve this. Why procreate when you can not commit into one wife and one family? If you feel that you wanna play around, go, but don’t bring down your wife together to your level. Jesus. I’m still waiting for karma to hit it back on them. Patiently.

Melaka Trip

About a little more than a year ago in May last year, we took a drive down to Melaka. We have been there so many times. So, we didn’t really do those must-do touristy things. It’s more for a chill out session. Oh btw, testing out this app for blogger see if it turns out fine. Right after work on a Saturday, we drove to Melaka and picked Steffieko from a place she calls home haha.

We booked this boutique hotel. It’s located right at the corner of Jonker Street. Parking spaces might be a little limited. But I gotta say that it’s a pleasant nice hotel. If you’re too lazy to drive or walk from Jonker, you might wanna consider this place.

We were just strolling around in Jonker. Bought food along the way and check where our hotel is located. It’s on the left.

We had this for dinner and damn it was so good. This only meant one thing, my cholesterol would fly high as high as the sky.

That’s the three contributors to the food earlier haha

Before leaving Steffieko in Melaka, a mandatory picture of us.

We had an agreement that we would go down to Melaka after she comes up to KL. So, as long as she doesn’t come up, then we wouldn’t too haha. I am a strong believer in fairness and equality. Haha. 🤣

Part 5: Seattle, Washington

Hello there. The birth of Instagram had killed blogs. haha.

Back to Snoqualmie Waterfall. It isn't that far off from downtown Seattle. Approx. 35 mins drive away, roughly 29 miles. It's really scenic and I am amazed by the volume of water gushing down this waterfall. Needless to say, it's really cooling. I've never seen one like this before! This is absolutely gorgeous.

Apart from the humans in the family, the four legged family got to enjoy too. I would probably guess that he's the happiest among all. He can't talk, but if he can, I am sure he's gonna say just that. His expression may not seem like it, but that's just how he looks. Regardless, he's still the most adorable dog.

You get to do some hiking here. There are some parts which are a little steep at the top. Other than that, it's fine. We all need a little work out right?

Then, we got to the bottom. Tadaaa.... I love the sound of the water, kiss your stresses away.

C'mon Rocky hahaha .... please co-operate. Just once. Please. Okay, at least he looked.

Part 4: Seattle, Washington

The long pause from Part 3. I have totally forgotten about it. I just had that sudden urge to blog out of the blue. Sometimes, you just wonder how all these things happen. You're just scrolling or browsing away, and suddenly, this blog pops up in your mind. I always think that there's a reason why it happened the way it did. Just like, how it leads me to something, and then to something more. Eventually, there's the answer. The truth is, I don't like solving all these things. Yet, I always wonder.

World famous museum. This is located right next to the Space Needle, the icon of Seattle. This is an exhibit showcasing the studio of Dale Chihuly. Galleries and sculptures are all made of glasses. This guy is amazing. I really enjoyed it

Sure, a picture that includes me. I wanna be part of it. hehe. The entrance is $29, but if it's combined with the Space Needle, it's $44. However, a better deal would be the Seattle city pass which comes up to $89 for 5 tourist attractions. It's worth it! This is definitely the highlight.

Rocky, the boy, not to be forgotten. He's just so cute!!

Us and the Asian food cannot be separated. I know! We had this in Tasty Thai located in Mercer Island. Being a Malaysian, I can't be THAT bad when it comes to spicy food. This, is just another level. There, we got to choose the level of spiciness. We thought, hey, this is not Thailand. They would cater to the local market, right? I'm not sure. But, the level 4 is just SO spicy. But, it's good, the food is so good.

We headed over to the east of Seattle, Snoqualmie Falls Park. It's a dog-friendly park. Cool! This is a preview. haha.

Walking Away

"I'm walking away from the troubles in my life
I'm walking away oh to find a better day"

To those who are familiar, it's by Craig David. I'm so good at this and I can only get better with time. Being a Libran, they have to be surrounded with people, there has to be a companion at all times. That does not make them an extrovert. They just want someone to be around because they can't be alone.

So many years had gone by, and I am walking away more and more. It does not make me sad, it does not make me angry, because, each person you walk away from makes you a stronger person. Each phase is a lesson to learn. If you think about it, it's not that all a bad thing. In fact, if these people are toxic, it's best you do. You know it best if you should, or shouldn't. This can be your close friends, your favorite friends, or your best friends. It does not matter anymore if you have decided if you should leave. If you think you are falling back, being low, and all those things, it's a sign.
That's exactly how I felt. It was complaint after complaint. From work, to family, to friends, to just random stuff that happens daily and it can go on and on and on. Well, I am not oblige to listen to all these BS every single day. Eventually, one gets fed up. Haha. When the complaint starts, I would pretend that I'm busy. Hahaha. But, how much more can I pretend? Not much honey.

Okay, on a separate note, I was told that I should be nicer. I should be considerate on their feelings. Ooh? Makes sense. Yes, they are right. However, not knowing that they were the same to me. "They" is a very general reference, not anyone in particular by the way. I don't get it, and I don't understand. Why is it okay that they are mean to me, but it is not okay that I return the treatment? Let me get this straight. I have to be nice all the time, and they don't have to? I have to be considerate, but they don't have to. But, why? I love to be the Karma judge. haha. Apart from that, I am a strong believer in equality. So, let's scrap the idea of it's okay them being that, and not okay me being this.
What do you do? That's when you play Craig David's song - walking away. There's no reason for you to stay being friends with these people. And, do you know the world's population? I bet you can find more friends. You don't need these people. You're better off alone than to be with these bunch. It amazes me that that I can be as chilled as this when it happened. I was as chill as I am right now when I walked off.

I do know that whatever I am doing right now, there are spies. Regardless where I am. Whether it's over social media, or at the streets. I know, people are watching, and people are looking. As I said it, it does not bother me. If you think that I am alone and as lonely as the lone wolf, you're wrong. Again, think as you please. It's okay. Every individual has the right and freedom to think whichever way they want. Thank you for being part of my life, once upon a time. You can always reply me "you're welcome" I really don't mind. But, please ask me this question. "Are you happy?" YES I AM. hehe.
