Promise yourself...

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”

Solo woman traveler!

Most of my friends asking me to write a travelog. Unfortunately, I don't have enough time to even think about writing (I mean, a long one) for all my travel experiences. Beside, I am now really in the middle of my thesis writing stuffs (for sure you can imagine how miserable and hectic my life would be, nowwww....) 

But yeah, for summarising, here are few tips for a solo woman traveler like me:

1. Plan your journey ahead. Please, if you are going to the non-english country, please bear in your mind that not all people there understand what you are talking and asking for. You should plan your itinerary ahead, where to go, what to do, how to get the public transport, etc. Although you can just ask it directly from the tourist information kiosk/centre, but incase you couldn't find any, atleast you already got the plan with you.

2. Make sure you have enough money, or atleast credit or debit card with you. Yes, you did plan for the journey, what to and not to spend for, but, sometimes you might overspend it. Always happen to me, whilst buying souvenirs for my relatives and friends..huhuhu...

3. If you're travelling during winter, please make sure you bring a lots of warm cloths. Once, I was stuck in the middle of night, on the stormy winter season, where the temperature was -10c, during my transit for the  next destination. And I was like, its really too cold for me to handle the -ve temperature. But luckily, I did bring few sweaters that make me warm that night...fuhhhh.... 

4. Just bring a few foods, cereal bars, incase you need to munching during the journey. But, still, you can just buy a lots of food during your journey. There are a lot of super/mini markets along your way, though! :) And if you're staying in a hostel basis accomodation, there are usually near to mini markets to buy some groceries to cook in their kitchen!! :) But if you're a muslim like me, you need to be specially aware about the ingredients of what you want buy (you need to avoid the alcohol and meat based things!).

5. Have faith!! Whatever your religion is, have faith that God will help you if you're stuck in anything.. Or atleast, have faith in your ownself!!

6. Lastly, just enjoy your 'me' time! yeahhh!!!

The untold feeling

In the middle of nowhere.. You hardly found that yourself lost..

You, yes, you.. are actually hoping for a 'miracle' helping hand, to, atleast ease the journey..

Ease the pain, and show you the light..

But, you just realised that you're really alone.. No one ever want to be with you, no one ever want to help you..No one, except THE ONE who created you..

At this stage, there is no one to rely on, only to the Almighty shall we return to..

The feeling..the untold feeling...

It might blow away through the wind, one day. But before the day come, you really feel it hard to adapt...

The untold feeling...

The feeling of a little woman, an ordinary little woman, who still struggling with her life and happiness...
