This is it...

It was November 1st 2009, the day that I came to a small estate in Gua Musang, named Relai. It’s fairly a good estate on the first few glimpses with terrains and valleys, quite similar to what I use to have in Damai Estate. But I believe it will help me to shine through thus unleashing my whole potential in this new company of mine.

As I have been working and dwelling in a remote area for the past 6 years, I’m confident that I can survive all the hoo-hah that Relai will throw at me along the way. But it proves me wrong. Relai is not just remote. It's VERY remote! I can't even use my cell phone and totally no access to the internet. My only option of keeping my sanity and connect to the outside world is to drive down to Gua Musang, which is just (?) 32 minutes away.

The town of Gua Musang too doesn't excite me much. Everyone is not in a hurry and it seems that the town is stuck in the 90's... Literally. But it’s relieving to see full-scale fully-stocked refrigerated cabinets in Econjaya, the only SUPERmarket in town. Oh how I miss that sensation of pushing a shop-cart and taking pictures like no one business with Ethan in Bintulu's very own New World Mart.

The Gua Musangians are very nice though, even when most of them stared at me as if they were sizing me up for some unknown agenda when I walk around in SHORTS. I soon realized that I am now in a state that upholds religion as its way of living where everyone should really 'behave'.

1 day is now gone. A few more years, months, weeks and days are remaining till the day that I have to leave for a new adventure in a new territory. In the mean time, I’ll try to adore my Relai and my Gua Musang in its full glory... In LONG PANTS!

I'MNOSUPERMAN: I miss Bintulu…
