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…

Shanghai, China 2003 - Paradise for adventurers...

"When we can't piece together the puzzle of our own lives, remember the best view is from above. Let him help put you together..."

I was in Shanghai for a Banknote and Security Printing Seminar with another officer from Bank Negara. After the seminar dear hubby flew in from KL and we had a few days exploring Shanghai and Suzhou.

Shanghai, with a population of more than 13 million, is the largest city in China. It is often likened to a dazzling pearl in the centre of the east coast, where the golden channel of the the Yangtze River flows to the sea.Shanghai has long and colorful history, dating as far back as the third century B.C. Shanghai grew in a lop-sided way but over nearly half a century since the founding of the People's Republic the Chinese government has made great effort to rebuild Shanghai into a metropolis city.

Shanghai is well known for its shops stocked with goods of every kind, of excellent quality and serviced with expertise and courtesy. Nanjing Road, Huaihai Road and the old Chenghuangmiao shopping market are ideal shopping areas.To wonder through the crowded alleys and lanes in the market is to experience the very heartbeat of Shanghai - the dynamism of commerce.

When you look back on your life
Wondering why you chose
not to cross the bridge,
Will you also wonder
what would happen if you did?
