    I was reading the NST yesterday about Sipadan nominated as the new 7 wonders of the world in the nature category… wow that makes me proud.  The article about Sipadan was in the NST again today and it was nicely written by our own Jaswinder… as she wrote…

    Pulau Sipadan is one of 261 nominees in the New7Wonders of Nature online campaign, alongside Ko Phi Phi in Thailand, the Maldives, the Grand Canyon and Niagara Falls on the Canada-United States border and Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.  A panel of experts will reduce the list to 21 on July 21.

    So friends.. let vote for Sipadan, just log on to new7wonder.com. I will bring my family especially my kids to explore the Sipadan water.. well need to learn how to swim and dive.. will wait until they are big enough.

    I Met My Long Lost Cousin

    I wanted to post this story earlier but i had problem downloading the picture, what a story without a picture… it is not too late to post.

    As some of you know that i have posted a story about how i met my cousin, who are staying with her family in US.. via blogging.  I knew my cousin will be coming back to Sabah but she did not received my email.. well lucky she give me her contact number in my cbox.

    I called Hilda last week.. it was in the weekdays when i managed to called her.. the first time i heard her voice.   She called me few days after that to invite me to her son and nephew’s birthday party at her sister in Penampang, that week was a busy week for me actually but hey..i wont missed this opportunity to meet my long lost cousin.. so i informed my sis.. she agreed to go.

    On that Saturday, 7 February..  as usual i was at home with my kids and my sister came there from the office late in the afternoon.. well for sure the party was over, the party was at 1.00pm.. but its not because of the party its the urge of meeting her made us go.

    I have been trying to call my cousin’s hp number but failed.. not sure why.. might be the connection or whatsoever..  i just wanted to inform her that we are going to be late and to make sure of the house address.

    It was my sister, me and the kids… so on the way .. i recalled what she told me earlier.. i remember the house number but i did not know there were so many lorong.. oh my.. so we go from one lorong to one lorong .. lol..looking for house no.5, i think there are 5 lorongs..  whenever we saw house no.5, we stopped.. and looked if that is the house and moved on.. until we saw house no.5, near the church.. well i said..i remember Hilda told me, its near the church.. it must be it.. it was a big house.. so i stepped out from the car.. but seems like no party going on and nobody inside..furthermore there were the Buddhist prayer outside the house.. and i told Shella it cant be it.. because of that… but we dont know her sister.. maybe she married to a Chinese..we thought.. making our own speculation.  I told shella, lets moved on the other lorong..just try our luck.. we reached to another house no.5, and i saw the little boy whom i saw in her blog.. ‘hey thats Billy’.. yes.. thats Billy alright.. lucky he was standing near the door where we can see him.

    We were welcomed by Hilda, my long lost cousin.. lol.. she is my 2nd cousin, our daddies are 1st cousin, to make it clearer..my grandmother and his grandfather (i guess) are siblings.. wow.. how cool that is.

    It was hard to make Billy sit still.. this is the best picture we managed to get from him.. lol..  Well not sure when can we meet again.. hopefully we will meet before they will be wearing Oakley watches that shows how matured and grown up they will be.

    Nice meeting her friendly husband.. who was busy playing cards with the family.. lol..welcome to the club.

    Great meeting you guys.. hope to meet you again.. who knows .. next time..we will go there to meet you.. cool ha.. i will keep on dreaming and wishing.
