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…

Singapore 2005: On-site approval...

“Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!” - Dr. Seuss

(A souvenir coin pack from the Singapore Mint)
The alarm woke me up at 5 a.m. but it took me a long time to depart from the cozy comforter. By the time I rushed out of the house and took the highway, it way already busy with traffic. I reached KLIA at 6.30 a.m. and had ample time to check-in and had light breakfast at the McD. Linda had booked me the 0805 flight to Singapore. The journey was uneventful and I slept all the way.

TJK was already waiting for me at the arrival hall of Changi Airport. His company car took us to the Mint and I was supposed to meet up with Miss C, the CEO and Dan T but they had to rush for a very important board meeting. TJK ended up giving me a tour around the Coin Shoppe and the exhibition gallery before we start on business.

I was introduced to the Production Manager and Technical Manager who later assisted me in checking the specifications of the samples. Some improvements on the relief of the design and the depth of the edge lettering have to be done before they proceed with production.

Later we met up with Miss C and Dan T at Desa Kartika for a hearty lunch. She had a bagful of souvenirs for me to bring home and distribute and some will add to my collections. TJK sent me back to the airport and I took the 17:25 flight to KL.

From KLIA I drove straight to Masjid Negara for my class.
