New Year, New Life in a New City

A big change is happening in our lives. At this moment, while all my peers are preparing to start Year 1 in a primary school, I have nothing.... no new uniform, no school shoes, no school bag, no books etc. but I still attended my Year 1 Orientation Day at school today where I met my class teacher. She's a very nice, soft-spoken and sweet lady and it's such a pity that I can't be her student :(

You see, mummy and I will be tagging along with daddy as he embraces a new career development abroad. Come 1/1/2013, we will be flying off to start a new life in one of the world's biggest and most populated city - Shanghai, China. I will be staying and schooling in Shanghai!

How do I feel about the move? Honestly, I am not keen at all with the news of our big move. My first concern was "China got earthquake or not?" Secondly, I am a very sentimental girl and I cried at almost every single thing that we had to let go of. I cried at the thought of not being able to see Ah Ma and Gung-gung as often as I liked. I cried (3 times!) when daddy sold off his car. I cried when we had to pack up and say goodbye to our house. There are so many things that we are going to miss in Malaysia, especially our loved ones!

Although we will be leaving with a heavy heart, we also look forward to our new life over in Shanghai. We look forward to staying in a "new" home, going to a new school (for me), meeting new people, eating new food, shopping in new malls, exploring new places etc.

Daddy and mummy are currently super busy running last minute errands and packing up! Our days in Malaysia are numbered... only 3 more days to go. Keeping our fingers crossed that everything will turn out fine. Till then, here's wishing everyone a wonderful 2013 ahead!

We might not have Internet access in the coming weeks but there will be several scheduled posts appearing every now and then to keep this blog alive :) Blogspot and Facebook are among the many websites blocked in China but we will find a means to access and post updates...
