Timo leaves later tonight for KL and then to Switzerland, and how time flies when you are busy being here and getting to know and appreciate a culture for the last two months. To get to know the country and its people through you personal experiences alone is worth the journey and how it opens your mind if not your heart towards the plight of others is an added bonus. However leaving behind a Mural on the wall at Gala House is an award and you have done well. I am happy to see that you have grown in character even in this very short visit. You have touched your brother and sister's heart and they look up to you in return at the very least you know now that you are not alone, you have someone who cares for you and cared by you.
As all good things must come to an end, this too will pass and we will go our separate ways continuing on our own personal journeys doing the best that we can at what love to do the best.
You will leave behind some new friends you have made here in Georgetown and in Terenggnau, people whose heart you touched and they yours despite the language and cultural barriers, I hope you understand the meaning of relationship with others like your cousin who make the Roti Nana at his coffee shop across from my twin brohter's house in Marang, Kuala Terengganu. O my friends at the Awi's Yellow House in Pulau Duyung, Terenggnau or those friends you met at the Western food restaurant on Pulau kapas and the Sungai Pinang Food Court in Penang. Not to forget the owners and staff of the Gala House who has accepted you as one of them. These are gifts from the journey that you have taken the initiative to act upon, you made it happen.I hope you will go on making all the effort to leave your home and see the world and all it has to offer. I hope this trip you have taken is only the beginning of many more even if it is to other countries.
I know you have learned from the mistakes you have made too and these i hope will help to strengthen your character as you move along in life. I hope you too will become a captain of your ship wherever you sail, the horizon is always there to explore and to create many more horizons in your mind. I bid you farewell and will no doubt miss you when you are gone, but I have had a good time being here with you. Have a good trip home.my son.
