open letter for the new year

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY! Just thought of writing a note that some people call these days as "open letter".
Prior of my move back to KL, maybe a lot of people think that it seems like a straight-up decision, but truth to be told, there's a lot of thinking and praying involved whether it is the right time or not. 
As time passes, it seems clear to me about the decision and I want to thank Bishop Meltar, Canon Khee Vun, Dean and even Rev Philip for their understanding. Not forgetting, the late Bishop Albert Vun for giving me the opportunity to experience the Sabah life and ministry first-hand.
Well, there are a lot of people I want to thank. From the top management of Diocese to ASC staff to ministry members and church members. Thank you for the friendship and time to help me feel at home here. There's a lot of friendship renewed and built.
I also want to take this opportunity to say sorry for the weakness, shortcomings and disappointments that I caused during my time here at KK. I know I have did in some way or another.
All in all, there were some good things and disappointments but I guess that is part and parcel of life with God. But in every circumstances, I thank God that He has always watch over me and I can testify from time and time again, His grace is always sufficient for me.
Sabah is actually not a bad place. In fact, it's a place where I really wish many of my west Malaysian friends would come to enjoy the beauty of nature and experiencing the unity of all the races here. For that, it is an experience that I am thankful for the rest of my life
There's so many experiences and lessons for me to share during my time here but I guess I will just save them for coffee/yamcha/catchup sessions or other times. Hahaha. I can't just spill so much here or else, it's too lengthy.
YES, this is not a "forever goodbye" as I would be still dropping by KK time and time again. As another chapter of life begin, my hope that everyone would able to experience the same as well. The heart of this note is more of reflection of this chapter of my life ahead of my next chapter. It's a note of hope. 
The Bible says there's always season for everything. So, remember that life is short. Don't waste it on negativity, instead be positive.
See you when I see you. Cheers and much love.
