Something Happened To Me In Bali

Posted by : foongpc | Thursday, April 1, 2010 | Published in


Hi everyone! I am back from my holidays in Bali!

Firstly, I would like to apologize to all of you who have been waiting for my blog updates. I was extremely exhausted after returning from my holidays I needed a long rest! It's like I needed a holiday after the holidays!

I am also sorry that I am unable to drop by most of your blogs as I am still recovering from travel fatigue, if there's a term for that! Haha!

Well, in any case, something extraordinary happened to me in Bali and no, it has absolutely nothing to do with ghosts or the paranormal.

I just have to say that at this very moment, I am on cloud nine. I am very, very happy. Want to know why?

I have found my true love in Bali, of all places! Yes, this sounds unreal but it's true! I have finally found the person I wanted to be with for the rest of my life!

When I heard that Amber Chia had a secret wedding in Bali, I was stunned. I mean, was this a coincidence or what? She got married and I found my life partner - and it all happened in this charming, lovely island of Bali.

I know, I know - this is my private life and I am not too comfortable blogging about it! I am a private person and I do not like to talk about such things. But I am just too excited not to mention about it!

This must be the most memorable holiday in my entire life! Honestly, I think Bali has changed my life!

Previously, I have never believed stories about couples who got married after just a week of knowing each other. Well, guess what? We are getting married in June! And that's just after 4 days of knowing each other! Are we insane? Maybe.

And where shall we be getting married? Where else, but in Bali of course!

I could hardly concentrate on my work since I returned. My mind was still in Bali. It was tough. I needed to go back to Bali.

All of a sudden, I did not have this desire to blog anymore. I tweeted less and I did not even have the desire to log onto my Facebook.

I just did not have this interest in blogging anymore. My passion for blogging had died and it was replaced with thoughts of my new love and thoughts on Bali.

I am so sorry to let everyone down. Thank you so much to all you readers who have been faithfully following my blog all this while. I am really grateful.

As it is, I am actually forcing myself to write this. But I think I owe it to all my readers to explain exactly what happened to me and what is going to happen next.

Maybe I will continue to blog until June. At least I need to finish up all my posts on my China trip and Lake Kenyir trip and even this Bali trip. I don't think it's good to leave them hanging. But really, I find it so difficult to write a post nowadays. It's taking too much time, too much effort.

But mostly, I am not in the right frame of mind to do any blogging. I just feel that things are different now. Life is different. Priorities have changed.

I will definitely miss all of you! Even though I will stop blogging, that does not mean we should stop contacting each other. Do email me as often as you wish!

I guess that's it for now.

Oh, by the way, if you have read this far, let me say.....



Getting married in June? That's crap!

Quit blogging? That's even crappier! Haha! : )

Note: Congrats to SK, Jam and Tekkaus for being the top 3 commenters in my previous two posts! You will each get to choose a souvenir I bought from Bali! More on the next post coming right up!

    I was reading the first paragraph of this post and then my daughter asked me why her iTouch calendar icon is "1" so I told her it's the first today (1:40AM right now), April 1...not even thinking about April Fool's stuff. Hahah, ok you got me. I was like "wow, this guy is head over heels for his newfound lover". Nice job, well at least I'm prepared for April Fool's Day. You're one day ahead of me since I'm the other side of the Pacific Ocean.

    I may not be often here, but knowing your passion for blogging, when you say you gonna stop, I guess it's a April Fool's joke.. I was initially believed it when you mentioned you marrying in June.. but towards the end, on not blogging, I don't think so.. muahaa..

    Welcome Back!

    Beh tahan on the big joke! I thought of wanna congratulate you until I reach the last paragraph.

  55. Becklee said...

    You really got me fooled! But having a whirlwind romance and getting married after knowing a partner for a short while has happened to someone I know, so it wasn't surprising to me if it had happened to you.

  58. HappySurfer said...

    Halfway reading, I had to go back to check the date to confirm that it was a joke. Good one though except that quitting blogging after marriage is not real for a passionate blogger like you, Foong. Bloggers don't quit for love. Or do they? LOL!

    April 2, 2010 at 4:29 PM
  59. HappySurfer said...

    That's a nice sculpture. How tall is it? What else did you buy? Looking forward to your pictures.

  60. [SK] said...

    hmmm, luckily i was not 100% fooled.. but maybe 50% only lah.. cos i only believe 50% of what you've written..

    April 2, 2010 at 6:31 PM
  61. [SK] said...

    see, bcos i still see you twittering, and still see you blogging.. so when you say you're gonna stop everything, i kind of suspect your intention.. your passion in all this just make me suspect!!

    April 2, 2010 at 6:32 PM
  62. [SK] said...

    anyway, i believe you must have had a great time in Bali though.. albeit you complained it's getting so hot there till you were sweating everywhere.. :p

    April 2, 2010 at 6:32 PM
  63. [SK] said...

    well, now till june is still two more months, you'd never know maybe you *accidentally* got married?? well, guess if you got married, you must invite all bloggers to go congrate you.. geez!! :D

    April 2, 2010 at 6:33 PM
  64. [SK] said...

    hey, what happened to my 70 comments!! i thot i can set the runner-up far away, but when i come and see today, it's just 2 extra comments from the 2nd position!! i must pick up again~~ :p

    April 2, 2010 at 6:34 PM
  65. [SK] said...

    hmmm, why you announce the winners so low profilely this time?? i thot normally you'd have one dedicated post to announce the winners.. you bias!!!!

    April 2, 2010 at 6:35 PM
  66. [SK] said...

    but never mind lah.. because i already knew i am the winner already!! who else can be as "phenomenon" as me, 70 comments in 2 post.. that's so incredible ok?? I AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF~~ :D

    April 2, 2010 at 6:36 PM
  67. [SK] said...

    so do i have a chance to choose my prize first?? and how do i claim my prize?? you never send me any notification in FB?? :p

    If you think of things that people like to do on their Bali holidays, golf isn't likely to be the first thing that comes to mind! But, while it isn't as famous as countries such as Dubai or Portugal as a luxury destination for 'short sleeved golf', golfers keen to practice their swing whilst in Bali will have plenty of opportunities to do so.

    April 2, 2010 at 7:30 PM

    foongpc!!!!! You did have me! I was sitting here with my mouth wide open in surprise but happy for you. You are so mischevious and I love it! Bali that is my dream destination!
