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…

Q6 4NR Day 01: KL - Hatyai

“The beautiful journey of today can only begin when we learn to let go of yesterday..." - Steve Maraboli

(The start of our 24-day riding adventure)

Day 01: 23 Nov 2017 (Thursday)
Route: KL - Hatyai
Distance: 535 km
Hotel: Golden Crown Hotel, Hatyai

Around 7.30 Started from Bidara House with Tuan Shawal who stayed the night at our house. At R&R Rawang met Tuan Syed. Stopped in Simpang Pulai to refuel then rode direct to Juru for Bawal Goreng lunch. In Changlun had our documentations prepared, changed some Bahts and ready to cross Malaysia/Thailand border at Bukit Kayu Hitam.

The border was very crowded with locals and foreign visitors. Even with the new numbering system, it took more than 2 hours to stamp our passports. Performed our prayers at Masjid Talardtai along the way to Hatyai. Our bike slipped on the pavement in front of the mosque and I hurt my wrist a little.

Had our early dinner at Khalid Restaurant before we checked in Golden Crown Hotel for Baht850/night. After an hour of foot massage, went to Aji stall for Pulut Durian. Met my niece Ailyn and hubby with the rest of their gang who convoyed by cars.
