Sick For 4 Weeks

After returning from Holland for two weeks, I fell ill. Well, if I have to be ill, at least it wasn't when I was travelling, I guess!

And so, I had the package of fever, cough and sore throat. Until today, I am still coughing, even after seeing two doctors three times, including a specialist. 

Coughing needs time to shake off but my mom is so impatient and doesn't allow me time to get well. She kept bugging me to see the doctor. Bah... waste my money only! 

Anyway, am on the road to recovery now, although I still have slight cough and phlegm.

Back From Holland LALALA

I have been back from Holland for about ten days now, where I spent a total of 1 day in KL and 8 days in the Netherlands. I am so high from the trip, it is very difficult for me to resettle to my daily routine here in Ipoh. 

Spending 9 days in total on vacation, I dare say it was better than some couples' honeymoon! But just when I was getting used to a new country, I have to return to Malaysia already. Argh! 

Holland was quite cold when I was there. The warmest during the day was about 16C and the coldest at night when I was still outside was about 12C. I was shivering most of the time! 

I love that Holland has long daylight when I was there. The days were bright from 5+am onwards and dusk only set in after 9pm! Wow, such long days, and I enjoyed every minute of my time there! 

I want to go back!

Eight Days To Go

There are still 8 days to go before my big trip to Europe! Holland, to be exact. I know it is still too early to pack but I am wondering if my luggage bag could fit everything in! 

I wonder if I should get a larger trolley bag.... on one hand, it would be more comfortable fitting my stuff, especially heels, and because it is cold, I need more and thicker clothes. On the other hand, I may have difficulty manoeuvring steps, if I have to. Besides this trolley bag, I also need a backpack for my laptop, water and other stuff. 

Argh... how lah? How lah? To buy or not to buy? RM300 only.

Counting Down

It is less than a month to my 6D/5N trip to the West, my first ever big trip and it will be a great experience for me. 

I am most excited about it but at this point, only one other person knows my real plans. Some friends have sketchy information. My family has no inkling at all. 

The whole purpose is to only break them the news at the last minute, or as late as possible. 

A friend has already booked me to send him a postcard when I am there. And of course, I will be sending postcards to myself as well, from 3 cities. Well, at least that's what I have planned.

Couple Rings

I bumped into a couple during my most recent trip to the East Coast. I just arrived home at midnight, by the way. I find this couple really loving in the sense that they are always spotted wearing couple t-shirts. So, even though at first I didn't know that they are husband and wife, I could soon tell!

I came across this pair of couple platinum rings from joyjewelers.com just now and instantly thought of them. I want to let them know about it so that they could match these rings with their tops. That would be so funny. Don't you think so?

Flying On A Boeing 777-200!

Yahoo.... I got my tickets and I will be flying end May, on a Boeing 777-200. Yup! My travel plans for April and May are almost set. I'll be heading to Terengganu for a week very, very soon, where some of the places that I'm visiting are Redang Island and Kenyir Lake! 

But between this trip to the East Coast and that international trip, I have time to fit a couple of more trips. The question is, do I have the energy? 

I have already declined a four-day trip to Penang, as it follows soon after the week-long East Coast trip. Besides, I was in Penang just around New Year's Eve and that was only some 3.5 months ago. 

Anyway, am so excited. Yabadabadoooooo!!

Remembering MH370

The Prime Minister of Malaysia made a sad announcement last night that the flight MH370 has ended in the Indian Ocean. Although many had a foreboding sense of this outcome, the finality of the statement dashed whatever hopes that we had clung on to that somehow, there would be survivors.

To many of us, MH370 which went missing on March 8, 2014 with 239 passengers and crew on board, it is just a piece of news, or just a number, but it's a tragedy that has affected thousands of lives, whether directly or indirectly. 

With this post, even though there's nothing much that i could personally do, I hope that the families of passengers and crew members will find peace of mind and come to terms with reality soon. One could only imagine the anguish of going though such a catastrophe.
