I got some frens asking about my experience when i traveled oversea.
Alhamdulillah so far i managed to travel to more than 8 countries which located in 3 different continents.
And of course i do hope (highly!) the number will increase (am working on it!)
Obviously one of my passion is to travel.
Due to soooooooooooooooooooooo many reasons.
Antaranya adalah to see the world outside. Im the kind or person who like to see places, see people. So many things you can learn from it.
You can learn people's culture, their language, etc..
to me yg paling menarik adalah weather nya, infrastructure nya and lifestyle nya... very fascinating.
weather is because negara kite 2 musim je..so sampai kesudahla ko xkan rase lg 2 musim tu kan..obviously kne pg luar br dpt merasa. so far winter dh rase..cukup!tobatttt xmo dah...however it was a beautiful experience if u ask me.... same as spring...MasyaAllah cantiknyeee!!!
infrastructure nye plak dr segi transportation..mcm europe i cukup tabik how they manage they transportation.. in london tu depends dgn tube (train) pun dh cukup..x de kereta pun xde hal lahhh. and they really restrict org nk bw kete masuk bandar so traffic jam tu mmg very controllable..so nk travel within london no hassle at all. perancangan dari segi tu mmg sgt teratur. Thats why people dont really depend on car bcause public transport mereka dah sangat bagus. ko dok ceruk mane pun still bole dpt train. it's reliable and reachable!
how i wish Malaysia (KL to be more specific) mcm tu jgak..
lifestyle?hehehe..ini merangkumi mcm2..fashion, eating, shopping..
Kat oversea expecially in Europe and US disitulah makbapak segala about fashion. Kebanyakkan fashion designer lahir dari sane..sooooooooo mmg kalau duduk sane setakat nk beli handbag Gucci/LV atau kasut Jimmy Choo tu no hal lahh.. sbb jauh lg murah..lagi2 kalau earn kt sane...mmg tiap2 bulan aku beli handbag sebijik kauuuuuuu. actually itu antara tarikan paling kuat..i suke shopping nokkkkk sooo kalau ade duit and duduk sane mmg gile dibuatnyeee..
Itu antara sebab2 why aku suke g mengembara (eccehhh mcm musfir plak bunyi). Bnyak sgt bende nk tgk..nk explore..nk discover..
But im not saying Malaysia x best (before ade org hentam/komen cakap aku ni lupe diri kannnn)..cmne best pun oversea, Malaysia ttp di hati..tanah tumpah darah..tempat bermain,berkahwin dan etc.
What im trying to say is that kalau ade peluang pg lah tgk dunia luar..ull appreciate it.
Also its really good if kita dpt tukar2 pengalaman dgn org yg same minat travel ni. ...boleh faham knp sanggup spend riban2 nk beli flight tiket,tempah hotel bagai. headache nk create itinerary sndiri sbb xnk harap travel agent (mahaiiii laaa)
I met some people who doesn't get the idea of spending money to travel.bg dorang itu membazir. dengar je crite tiket 2-3 ribu trus cakap "isshhh mengarutlah"..."x kuase aku nk spend bnyk mcm tu"... "makk aiiii balik makan pasir le jwpnye".. well..itu terpulang..pendapat masing2..duit pun masing2 kan..so xde hal.
Like me antara tips kalau nk travel ni i like to do research..a lot of research..start dari harga tiket flight, transport kt sane, hotel, ape/mane nk makan, tempat nk lawat, money exchange mane nk tukar bla bla bla..
i m not really into travelling with agents..im independent kotttt.hahah perasann.
kalau dulu suke sgt mase Airasia still ade route pg London & Paris. tp skrg hampeh dah ditarik blk.so kne harapkan airline middle east jela..actually MAS pun quiet ok kalau die buat promo..blh tahan harganya and definitely will opt for MAS kalau harga tgh promo..service tip top!makanan best!
for flight ticket price i like to survey kat WEGO. compared to other flight search engine, wego ni blh buat comparisons tanpa kluar bnyk2 window... sume kluar kt satu page je so senang bangat. trus blh dpt mane airline offer harga paling murah utk certain dates yg uoll letak. very very useful.
Kalau utk hotel ade a few yg aku suke. antaranya AGODA, Booking.Com,HotelClub, Venere.Com, Wotif.Com..itu antara i paling sukewwww. customer service pun bagus..cepat reply and review hotel2 dorang sume blh dipakai. When booking a hotel, try to book yg close dgn public transport,,itu crucial..jgn main tibai nk yg murah tp nk cari kemain susah..buang masa jeee..like for me i will search in hotel seach engine first, then try cari kalau hotel tu ade website sndiri..and then masuk Tripadvisor utk tgk ranking and additional review..so br ade better picture before nk book.
and for those yg nk travel time summer, sila book awal sbb confirm full and harga mencanak naik.
And utk tempat makan plak..mmg susah la nk cari masak lemak kt sane kan..so normally we go for middle east restaurant..mostly halal. seperti biase kalau book hotel biase xde dapur kan..just boleh rebus megi jela..so bawakla bekal megi lebih sket..trust me smpai je sane lidah ni tetiba craving nk pedas2 nnti..
if in lodnon agak senang nk cr restoran melayu, tp in other part of europe like paris, geneva..brussels ke..mmg susah...before pg survey kt tenet mane ade provide halal meals..penting tu sbb while in Paris i forgot to survey so we ended up walking almost half an hour in freezing cold weather to cari halal restoran.
allocate dalam min 7euro -15 euro (if kt europe la) for each person per meal.. kalau dlm RM dalam 30-50 hinggit la sekali mkn. itu x campur mkanan kunyah2.
lain cerita kalau book apartment..boleh jimat dgn masak je kat dapur..alaaa nasi putih ngn telur kicap pun dah kire sodapla tu kannn.
for now itu je tips yg dpt diberi..hopefully bguna pda nusa dan bangsa..insyaAllah nnti ade lg post utk tips2 menjimatkan duit ketika bercuti yaaaa..
just a quick glance, me and hubby have been married for...8 months..
ehhh wait..(we got hitched on 28 October last year so ohhh ok..)
we've been married for 10 months now. (see?not even a year passed and i already forgot)
i always heard people say the beautiful, sweet and romantic life of marriage only happen during the early stage of the relationship.
i wont say it's not true.
But u dont have to agree or abide to it right?
im proud to say even until now me and hubby managed to keep the spark alive. im not only saying on the intimate side but also all sort of aspects.
but dont get me wrong..it all doesnt come easy just like that .it comes with effort, alternatives, patience, understanding and tolerance.
i calm him down after his long tiring day at work..massage him, make him cold drinks (sometimes ehehe) make him feel confortable at home.
and him?he will do the same to me. its a 2 way relationship
but marriage is more than just rubbing and massage when ure tired. preparing meals when ure hungry. its more than that.
and now we are the point where something else matter more.
how we survived each other. our flaws and bad side of us.
and how to make the attraction between us become no less when time passes.
i want to be someone who is perfect when im around him.
thats when u need some extra help.
ive heard of this thing call "opposite attracts" or "attracting the opposite sex"
well obviously we are attracted to each other (husband and wife daaaaaa)
but to spice it up a bit will do not harm aitte??
im thinking of changing how my body smells like..
or in another word..a new deodorant.for both of us.
Anarchy For Her Body Spray-for me
Anarchy For Him Deodorant Body Spray.- for him
im telling u its perfect for us. "opposite attracts" theory was successfully proven.
a great addition.
And not to forget mentioning how dying and badly we are in need for our second honeymoon.
we did plan for a beach getaway ..but maybe need to save more money first..
Ohh..one thing i must get my hands on..a new camera!
didnt snap any pic for my raya..i wish i can have like the official "me and husband together whereby i sit and put my hand on his lap thingy"..waaaaa
i was soo busy this raya didnt get the chance even on my phone camera.Salam mintak maaf di pagi raya pun dalam kereta tauuu..hahah it was soooo funny. Didnt wear my FV baju raya since i knew i would be moving a lot so takut baju tu rosakkk..wahahaha..chiffon la katekannn
My journey started at my parent's house in Pandan Indah then Temerloh, Pahang then Jerteh,Terengganu (we attended my hubby's cousin's wedding which was so near to Pulau Perhentian..i swear i almost forced my hubby to hop on the boat and off to the island hehehe)
and then after Terengganu we went to Kota Bharu,Kelantan..ohh myy..so tiring.. lah this raya..but i managed to see almost all of my hubby's family ..the last one was during my wedding. He has such a big family and very meriah..
This is out first year as a husband and wife..so meaningful..Went to Terawikh together..Eventho i didnt manage to bake any biscuits for raya or buy him baju raya (he insisted he didnt need a new one as he rarely wear them..) i am grateful we can celebrate it together with both our families.
I hope it is still not to late to wish all of u Selamat Hari Raya Maaf Zahir Batin. jika ada terkasar bahasa tersilap kata..harap dimaafkan..
At first i tot of cancelling it..malasssssss nk gerak awal..
but having second tot and i decided to just go and redah..
a fren already waited there from 7.30am cmtu and when i came rase segan nk join die so i beratur la belakang..segan ngn org2 yg dah lame beratur.
but as expected..crowd gile ramai..ade yg dh tunggu seawal 3.30am!
Sebahagian dr crowd..beratus2 org gakla..
i was on the boxing lane sbb mmg nk cube dulu br beli..xmo trus grab sbb takut x fit..
Made new friend..Ziana..all the way from Singapore hokayyy.. bile tgh beratur ade dgr2 bnyk stok dh abis so die kecewa sgt2..
Her waiting number 4F.
Mine 3G..mine all the pics mmg lighting buruksss..
mamat ni tibe2 out of nowhere bg pengumuman stok mane yg tinggal and mane yg dah abis. tp bagus gak..
Ziana made it to the hall first..jeless tauuuuu
But guess what??
I didnt wait until i got inside the hall eventho i was almost near the entrance..
Haisshhh..i was in a rush
so gave my number to the girl at the counter and left the scene...as much its breaking my heart but i couldnt wait anymore..the line were moving soooooo damn sloww.
i promised my mum i would brought her to buy some raya stuff and i cannot be late as she doesnt like waitingg.
as for the boxing days itself..i know they have tried their best but still i found some flaws during the events.
1) the announcement for design & size left was not clear
2) since they were using some number system, ade yg beratur lambat got the chance masuk dulu sbb nombor yg die pegang tu bergerak cepat..so kesian sape2 yg dtg lg awal yg pegang no lembap..it means personal shopper yg handle nombor tu lambat buat keje kottt.
3)i tot method boxing day ni u just lepaskan sume org and bg masuk sekali gus..tp letaklah penjaga kat setiap section..mcm every design and fitting room letak org jage and max no of baju nk fitting..so xdela tunggu sampai 4-5 jam not knowing what we get. itulah style boxing day kalau kt oversea..standard la kalau ade baju koyak/rosak..itu mmg damage yg die kne expectla.
4) i didnt make it in to the hall so x sure what happened. but we were given a form to fill the design and size mane nk try.but kalau time kite sampai depan and those design tu dah xde kite x bole tukar langsung and abis kt situ jee..sbb dlm form tu limited to 4 designs saje....do u get me??or x phm sbb aku pun confius here
i am soooo interested to try Janina P,Jadore B size XS..tp xde rezeki kott..
So that's my story..queued for almost 4 hours but didnt get myself anything..
