It has been a long, long time since I last wrote in my blog. I have been sharing places and food with you, had so much fun until I forgot to share about me! Hahaha!
Of course the first thing I must confess is that my weight has been yo-yo-ing with all those climbs, hikes, birthday, travels and food! Overall, input outdid output!! Sigh…
If you have been a regular reader of this blog, you will realise that my lifestyle has changed in the past few months! Yup! Since I started believing the prediction that the world will end in December 2012, I have started planning a trip a month to somewhere; have fun and live life the fullest everyday!
To today, I have not stopped believing and I have not stopped enjoying! In fact, a dear girlfriend told me that whatever I am doing now is encouraging even if the world does not end then! True! After all, every wise saying and advice tells us to live life, live in the presence and live the day!
To me, it is a priority in life whether you choose to be routine or choose to explore. Hey, that does not mean I do not work for my living! I am still a 9-5 kind of person. Only thing is I plan them well to complete the urgent matters before each trip. Do not want to jeopardize my rice bowl mah!
“So, if the world does not end in 12/2012, what will you do?”
I would say, I will continue living life the way I am now because nobody knows when life will end! Since life is so unpredictable, why not make the most out of it when we are alive, right?
I am no heroine; do not know how to create miracles and am no scientist to introduce healing pills! I am just an ordinary person who loves life, loves to stay happy and love to see everyone else happy! I love nature’s creation and see joy in anything and everything! I always say it is all in the mind how one wants to feel. Choose happy and it will be happy!
Okay, okay! I must admit I am not always so high one, but I must also admit that I try to remain at that state of mind as long as I can! The best way to do so is be happy when others are!
I have witnessed a dear friend who tipped all the workers in a small Thai restaurant RM5 each just to see the smile on their faces. While he enjoyed seeing them smile, I enjoyed seeing him brightened up with his act of joy! There! Life is seeing people happy and be happy yourself! You can be in that state when you choose to, via actions you do!
Another dear friend who attends weekly Dharma classes always has a smile on her face. Her pretty face always looks so pleasant and approachable. Her radiance smile and the twinkle in her eyes reflect her positive aura so much so that one will automatic feel happy in her presence.
According to her, one just needs to know how to let go. The moment one can let go of possessions, whether people or things, there will be no greed for love, power or money! After all, we cannot take care of a person and we cannot use our wealth after we die.
There is so much to learn in life and every day I am learning something new! There is so much to see in life and every other day I am seeing something new, interesting or fascinating! Simply love life!
Lately, I have invested in a FujiFilm S4000 camera because I see beauty in birds’ photography! Lots of patience required when one needs beautiful shots, just like shooting pictures of insects.
Do you know that photography can change a person’s life? Seeing something in real life and seeing the same thing in a picture gives you different perspectives. I started seeing flies differently after I took the first picture of it! I must say God has created all things beautiful; be it small or large, pets or pests, human or not!!
Since a trip a month started in June 2011, the craziest decision I have ever made was climbing Mount Kinabalu! Hahaha! Though I did not make it to the peak because of my breathing problems, I had fun! I really enjoyed the Mesilau Trail very much and am very thankful of Monyet King for the invitation! It was wonderful to be in the company of great people who enjoy life! Thinking about it already brings big smiles on my face!!
That trip was also the longest planned trip of 2011, I hope, because it lasted 11 days! The maddest of all things we had done, we did the climb first before anything else!
Day 1, we climbed up Mount Kinabalu, the highest mountain in South East Asia.
Day 2, they climbed up the Summit and immediately climbed down the mountain.
Just when our legs recovered from the mountain climb, we travelled to Mulu Caves in Day 5 and spent 4 days 3 nights in and out of caves!
Day 10 we were back to Miri and
Day 11 we left Miri in the evening! Maximum stretch of 11 days trip of adventures and fun!
Since then, we made a few trips towards north of the Peninsular which one of it ended up in Songkla, Thailand! No joke! That trip was the first “no plan” itinerary trip! That was a very fruitful trip because we managed to visit all members of GFrenz! Simply great!
The most exciting of all trips was the day trip to Sitiawan which we got lost and finally home safe in the wee hours of the night! Sweat! This trip gave us a lesson of not being too adventurous and always be ready to stay overnight if the journey home is too far!
Of course we put what we learnt in good use when we made an ad-hoc trip to Port Dickson recently! Decision made just after midnight, packing started when we woke up and we ended up from a one night two days trip to a two nights three days trip! Got enough clothes? Errr….. Got enough money? Errr….. Ahahaha!
Aiyah, local trips not too bad mah, we can always get money from Ah Longs (money lenders eg. our dear nephew) or ATMs so that we can buy more clothes mah…. Are we now seasoned travellers or what, hor? Hahaha!
My life changed because of a belief, this belief has turned into actions and now these actions have changed my life!!
What have you believed or done recently that had changed your life?
