About Me

I am married to my loving husband for more than 38 years now. I am a mother to 3 beautiful children, until 11 years ago when I lost my youngest son. Since then my life is forever altered but yet unbroken....

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…

Day 01: Kuala Lumpur - Tashkent, Uzbekistan

“If you don't know where you're going, you'll end up someplace else.” - Yogi Berra

Day 01: 11 August 2017 (Friday)
Route: KL – Tashkent
Flight: HY552 1145/1640
Hotel: Tashkent Shodlik Palace Hotel, Uzbekistan

Our group gathered in KLIA three hours before departure. Our Uzbekistan Airways flight HY552 departed at 11.45 am. We landed in Tashkent International Airport at 4.40 pm. The passport control was chaotic without a proper queuing system. By the time we passed immigration, our bags were already thrown out of the carousel.

Our young local guide Mr. Maarof was waiting for us. We were transferred to our hotel for prayers then later went to Afsona Restaurant for dinner. Dinner was ok if not for the intermittent power blackouts. We ended up having a candlelight dinner in the stuffy dining room full of smoke.

We stayed overnight in Tashkent Shodlik Palace Hotel, Uzbekistan.
