homesick

i miss home, desperately....
i wouldn't miss home so much if the place i am now is so dead..
and those people who are same as me now, staying in this dead city, will just be as homesick as i am, i'm sure...
i'm just in the midst of the holiday, for god's sake i'm already back in NUS, staying here for no other reasons but just to standby....2 more weeks before welcoming the next semester, and i have to endure all of them...
the past 2 weeks of holiday at hometown was....busy, i can only think of this word to describe, and i must say it's very..busy.
it's just merely a weekend, that i went home from NUS, before i departed to Taiwan for family trip...
i personally do not give much hope to the trip, well following tour guide isn't that great after all, you're rushing for tourist spots in fact, but it's the first ever family trip for my family, i must and i want to make it as perfect as possible...
6 days trip, was shortened to 4 days, as the first and last day were used to travel..
taiwan....is not what i imagined it to be....i have to admit that assuming it to be one of the most advanced countries in Asia, i compared it with singapore, very much in terms of architecture of buildings and streets, but it was...surprising to realize that it's very much japanese style actually, and then only i realized taiwan was under the colony of japan for 50 years....
taiwan's pasar malam is so grand that i suspect it's one of the main contribution of their national income,haha, and i had the chance to taste some of the popular food introduced on tv, tasty but, very unhealthy....
taiwan people are simple, not to say that they are simple minded, but they give me the feeling that they are nice, friendly, simple, and honest, even those who sell food and clothes at pasar malam gave me the same feeling, unlike people in malaysia, which gives a strong support to what i always think, m'sians' mentality are still way too immature compared to other nations, and other people deserve to have better achievements in terms of nation development solely because of this reason....
after 6 tiring days, feng ee came to ipoh, had nice times together in ipoh and cameron, though a lot surprises popped up, lol, nevertheless, it's memorable, glad to fulfil a lot of promises that i gave her before, great food she tasted, fun time spent with her in cameron, though not long enough actually, but still there are more opportunities to come....
after that, uncles and aunties took turn to come and stay in my house for several days,lastly, spent another 2 days with my gang in ipoh, and that's it,goodbye my holiday in ipoh, here i am, back in pgp....
it's only at this moment that i suddenly realize that everyone in pgp is lonely, despite the fact that some of them have stayed here for several years, it's just that when semester starts, the workloads have overwhelmed all your feelings, but when there's nothing to occupy yourself, loneliness, is all you have here....
