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…

Koh Samui Pre-Ramadhan Ride...


"Take time for all things: great haste makes great waste..." - Benjamin Franklin

(The KTM and the GSA)

Route: KL - Changlun - Koh Samui - Hatyai - KL
Date: 11 - 15 April, 2015

It was the last weekend before Ramadhan. And this is our last ride before the fasting month's hiatus.

The KKB riders gang had initially planed for a ride to Koh Samui but because of last minute commitments of some, the trip was cancelled. Regardless, we went ahead with our plan to ride and Kittwan joined us in Changlun and we rode together to Koh Samui.

We stayed for for two nights on the island, enjoying its serenity and visited some of the attractions. Another night we spent in Hatyai before we rode home.
