It has been my home for the past 34 years and counting. I used to dream of migrating to other country when I was young. Never like the humid weather, and prefer some Western countries where I could experience the beautiful 4 seasons.
Hubby also shared the same dream as me, thinking of sending kids to overseas and have their higher educations there. Our first choice is New Zealand. I always love New Zealand. I heard so much of it from friends and relatives.
But recent natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunami and political unrest rather turn me off. We are not changing our mind, but rather re-assess our plan. The kids are still young, so it would not happen in 10 years time. We may not migrating over, but instead staying for certain period for children' educational benefit sake. So we are not leaving our country behind.
I am not complaining about my home. We may not have a perfect environment here, but after thinking and weighing this and that, we still think that our country is not too bad. I guess so, because many expatriates and foreigners residing here. There must be some reasons they choose our country right?

I love Kuching because here I can find good food, great people and beautiful scenery. Probably the last one is hard to find now, with many developments mushrooming around the city in past years. Kuching is fast developing and sometimes I wonder are we really ready for all those development?
