My Mother The Traveller

My mother and I share the same interest when it come to travelling. She too used to travel a lot during her younger days. That is why she joined the airlines. Well not as the cabin crew but as an IT officer. She still gets the perks to travels same as any employee of the airlines. 

So when I was small I had the chance to travel around the would with my parents. Most of it I am not able to remember as I was still too young but there are a lot of photos we took and kept so I could be reminded on the journey. 

Now my mom especially still love to travel and most of the time I would bring her around travelling the world to new places which she never been before. She loves to travel with me as I am an excellent planner and she could take her own sweet time to move around. She is getting old so she can’t really walk that fast anymore. That is why she never liked to travel with tours. It is better to travel on our own and take our time and make our own plans. 

My dad, well he doesn’t share the same passion as me and my mother. However, I would still bring him around sometimes. They have cats and lots of cats so they have to alternate travelling with me all the time. 

Where to next?

A Good Time

Have you watched The Greatest Showman movie? If you haven’t do go and watch it. I know I like it. It’s a musical and the songs are fresh and ecstatic.


Two song in particular which I like the most - Rewrite the stars and This is me. The choreography is on point. 

Anyway, I am now in Chongqing, China. I don’t think I could pronounce it correctly if you hear me say it. It’s a beautiful city by the river and at night the buildings are lighted with beautiful colours. It is winter at the moment here but there is no snow. Just fog and rain. Just nice to sleep in.


I’ve been here in October 2017. The weather and temperature at that time are still tolerable for me. So I did all my sightseeing for the whole day. All by metro and taxi. It is convenient. Plus most of the attractions or museums are free to enter.


Time for me to go back to sleep after a good big breakfast. A good way to become fat. Hahaha...

Facebook, Instagram and Me

I am an addict. 

Addicted to Facebook and Instagram to be specific. I can’t seem to stop myself from constantly engaging to both. 

I believe the only solution to it would be to delete the app. However, I would die of boredom if I do that. I still am lazy to do any work if I were to keep the apps. 

I always wonder what would it be to be free from all these social networking. It is not really a gain to me as most of the time I ended up viewing other people life. I have few friends who manage to delete their profile all together. 

Maybe I just need to set a rules for myself. Maybe it could work if my will power is strong. 

Hahahaha. 


Me and my addiction.

Let’s Go To UAE

Tonight would be my first official holiday for the year 2018 and I am bringing my mom along with me. 

Guess where I am heading. 

Dubai and Abu Dhabi of United Arab Emirates. 

Burj Khalifa Dubai

I think it has been ages since my last visit to UAE. Four years perhaps. This time I am going to visit their Miracle Garden. It is my mom wish and who am I to say no to my mother. She is all hype out now. 

We been to Dubai together before. I think it was in 2012 maybe. Since Dubai is such a familiar city to us, I decided to bring her to Abu Dhabi as well. I could show her a few places of interest which I visited before in 2010. 

Grand Mosque Abu Dhabi

Tonight we fly out. Flying with Emirates to Dubai and coming home with Etihad. Both which my mom have not flown yet. So it would be a first time experience for her as well. Our flight departs at 0110LT and expected to touchdown at 0430LT.


Alright then. Time to resume my packing. Pray for our safe journey and well being.

P/S: I will try my best to update my travel blog with beautiful pictures once I am back from UAE.

I Want To Sleep

Sometime I wish I am able to wake up late in the morning. Unfortunately my body clock wouldn’t allow it. So I end up waking up early between 7-8am in the morning everyday.

There are times that I wanted to use medicine aide to help me sleep longer but if I do that I would end up feeling groggy once I actually woke up.

So I guess I just have to live with it. Darn it.
