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…

Hong Kong 1987 - The Fragrant Harbour...

Hong Kong
(26 -29 October, 1987)

This trip was made after a 2-week seminar with the Long Term Credit Bank in Tokyo. We had a fun time shopping at Stanley Market and visiting some of the attractions around town...

With its magnificent harbour, steep peak and surrounding islands, Hong Kong is one of the world's more geographically interesting cities. The territory's 1084 sq km is divided into four main areas - Hong Kong Island , Kowloon, the New Territories and Outlying Islands.Victoria Harbour is Hong Kong's densely populated area, with most of the urban areas lining the northern or southern shores. Originally about one mile wide, the harbour is squeezed by reclamation on both sides.

(The two of us)

Looking back on what we've been through,
i couldn't have done it without you.
highs and lows, slow and fast,
we took everything that fate could cast.
We have said all along that we will last

Those that said we had no chance,
accept that what we have is true romance
So here's to us we'll make it through
apart from the odd hiccup or two

but we will cope from now on
because our love is still so strong.

Hi Nong, came across your blog while searching for information on Betong.

Great travel blog you have.. and it was such a great journey you had with your spouse where both of u travelled around the world since 1987 or maybe earlier.. I was just 4 years old then..

I was thrill to know you travel on bike with your hubby.. My hubby is new in bike.. I think it was because of me he venture into superbike... I adore man on superbike since young..
Hubby owned a Yamaha R1 but he crashed it a week after he bought.. Lucky that he escaped with external injuries only..but the bike suffer serious damage.. and it really make me wonder if he should quit his new toys for safety wise.. He just got back his bike but masuk kilang again as the bike speed could not reach more than 200 kmh after the crash..

He is still hoping his bike would be ready for his first trip to Betong. I wish I could join him..but riding on a Yamaha R1 can be tiring for both of us.... haha.. I could smell my pants burning...and my leg cramp after a mere 30 mins ride.. any tips?

I will follow your blog from now on.. I hope during my 30's anniversaries with my hubby, I can still enjoy my life as you do..

Take care..
