As usual, whenever I am back to my home, I will announce my presence in the city, Miri. However, a nice and good shower is more important than the announcement. Yes, shower first!
On 19 Jan 2010, I announced my arrival via Facebook and 'sms'ing to friends who don't play Facebook and also some people who deleted me from his Fb's friend list. Yes, I text messaging some people who deleted me, the story is too long to write, and also too childish to talk about.
Acknowledging my presence is part of my important ritual whenever I am back home. Without this ritual, I am like a ghost to the city. Should I say a lonely ghost....
My experience as ghost was in 2007 & 2008. I was too lazy to announce myself to my friends, and I ended up being forgotten by the society. Those 2 years were my 'isolation' years. No new friends and some friend even 'unfriended' me. From being a shadow to becoming a ghost. During that period, when someone saw me in the city, they thought they saw a ghost.
In 2009, the ghost took a shape as a cute lady and enrolled as a human being. For history, please click.

Back to 19 Jan 2010, met up with friends for yamcha (drinking tea / hang around) session. Let's call it as 'tea cupping'. Tea cupping with my bunch of photographer friends is slightly different from normal tea cupping. Everyone of us will be online while tea cupping. We drink tea, we online, we talk, we 'campimping'. We are not whores, so we pimp.
