My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

Tokyo, Japan 1987 - The Land of the Rising Sun...

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams..." - Eleanor Roosevelt

I was in Tokyo for a 2-week seminar at The Long Term Credit Bank. We stayed at the Palace Hotel, Tokyo and went for a tour of Kyoto on the weekend. Hubby came after the seminar. We spent a few days in Tokyo visiting interesting places like Mt Fuji, Lake Hakone and the Disney Land. Later we spent a week holiday in Hong Kong!

For decades Tokyo was visited mainly by businessmen and women, connected with Japan's booming electronics and car manufacturing industries. Today, more and more people are coming to this huge, exciting megalopolis in order to enjoy its vast array of attractions and to experience a little of the almost 'other-worldly' culture which Japan offers visitors from overseas.

Tokyo's infinite charms include temples, palaces and gorgeous, intricate gardens as well as a nightlife second to none. As for shopping, Tokyo is world famous for its boundless variety of shops and stores. Visitors in spring can enjoy the special bonus of seeing the fabulous cherry blossoms that attract vast crowds to the city parks. But a trip to Tokyo, at any time, is guaranteed to be a profoundly interesting and enjoyable experience.

Tears from my eyes

If the tears from my eyes,
could fall upon you,
they would cry for me,
as i do for you,
They would look into my eyes,
and give me a kiss to hold inside,
for then i would plant my lips upon you,
for our love forever,
remains so true.

This is the first time for me to travel overseas, alone and leave my loved ones behind. Sara was 4, Iwan 3 and Ja was still still a todler.

I cried buckets but hubby came and we had a week holiday after that. Melancong di Tokyo and Hongkong...
