hello, stranger

After Australia, retracement of old footsteps continues on, to Malaysia. This is the homeland of both my parents, and breaking a personal 18-year absence from the equatorial tropics is important for different reasons, not the least of which are related to family.

Customary visits and non-stop food headline, while heat and humidity remain suspended in air, as I remember.

And, just like that, in an instant, I'm gone.

Hello. Goodbye. See you again, another time.
