Retreat to Chiang Mai, Thailand

At the beginning of May my fellow YAGMs and I spent a few days in Chiang Mai, Thailand. It was a great time for relaxation, conversation, and memories. ImageImageImageImageImageSwim time with YAGM girls (photo credit: Tessa)

Family visits Sabah

 

My wonderful family (unfortunately, minus my Dad) came all the way to Malaysian Borneo to visit me! Here are a few snapshots of our time together. I had such a blast showing them around Sabah. We spent much of our time here in KK, but also spent time in Kundasang, Sandakan, and the Kinabatangan River. We all successfully, but painfully climbed Mount Kinababalu and had a blast!ImageRoti Canai and Milo with LinneaImageSapi Island with Nazree

Friends from Sichuan visit Sabah

My best friend from China mainland, CC, and her cousin-sister, zhengjia, came to Sabah for a week to visit me. I had such a great time reconnecting with my friend and showing them around the place that I now call home. At times I felt like I was on a Chinese girls vacation honeymoon, but it was great fun and a good time to relax. It was a bit odd doing more tourist-like activities, but it was fun nonetheless. It was a blessing to have my best Chinese mainland friend to get to know my best Chinese Malaysian friend, Jing Jing! Halfway through the week I became violently ill, but with the care and love of my friends I recovered quickly!
