It has come to my attention that I may never be able to be a TaiTai (click to see definition).

I've now been so called stranded in Malaysia for the past one week. I was supposed to fly out of KUL on 13th November to the exoticly super fast developing Dubai city.

But alas! No. I'm still stuck here... pending the return of my passport from British High Com.

Without going into details and sounding like an ungrateful sod, I live my days here one day at a time - checking with the people who are working with the high com on the processing of visa.

The beloved TOH had been such a sweetheart and decided not to go to Dubai alone and stayed back to be with me. How lucky!

Now that he is back in the UK, I'm here all bored out. Everyone has their own things to do. And me? I'm 'floating about' I guess.

Daily routine would be - wake up, switch on computer, check status, and then *blank*.

People in Malaysia often think that if one worked in the UK they will be abundantly rich due to the exchange rate.

Currently the exchange rate is not as strong as it used to but nonetheless is still about five times higher.

But how much shopping and lazying around can one do?

I still need to pay bills and I'm not even sure whether I'm getting paid while being out here.

Plus, I'm a workaholic.

I've had my share of my holidays.

And now I don't know what to do.

I miss my work. I miss my flat. I miss my space.

Now, will someone please help get me out of here?

In the meantime, if you are a TaiTai or someone who has nothing to do during the day like me, we can possibly meet up and do some TaiTai activities - I suppose...
