Passion Quirks‏

The other side of me.

The kinda silly one that most of my friend beh tahan (can't bare) is my dressing... looked normal right in all my pics?!!?!? YOU SEE.... I MUST look good in pics because the logic is that I won't be spending the same amount of dollars to travel to the same place AGAIN! THUS....I make sure

- The clothes I bring are of all colours, meaning all of the rainbow colour will be in the luggage (you won't caught me in more then 2 black items per trip)
- Different hair style each trip (though I hardly follow this rule these days)

- NO REPEAT of clothes within the last 2 years of my travel unless to the same country over & over again (ie Bali/ Bangkok etc etc), hence all destination are special (DRAMA!)

- 1x JEANS ONLY (I will wear to/from the trip - to lighten the weight, in between? dresses, skirts, shorts, whatever lar...
- STRANGELY am not a toiletries person ie I MEMANG even at home (really) DO NOT use any fancy soup, body wash, shampoo etc, NOR do I use moisturizer, toner or whatever stuff those girls put on their face. I ONLY USE Johnson Baby lotion since like forever (since baby!)
- Make-up ? BASIC. Foundation, Johnson Baby Powder, eye-brow pencil, blusher & lipstick AND I don't touch-up after that (MALAS!). YUP! Low maintenance gurl I am.
- NO BLACK colour luggage nor backpack nor passport holder nor any accessories lor, hard to locate lar if it goes "missing"... so, I play my PSP while waiting for luggage (I can spot it a mile away). Most of my stuff are in apple green (black colour means I need to stand near the belt and keep flipping and checking). FAVOURITE COLOUR = GREEN
- 1x UNIQUE adventure per country (if I can help it lar) ie abseiling, bamboo rafting, microlight, sand boarding, sunflower field, desert hike, cruise, road trip etc etc ZOO as well (I HEART ZOOOOO)

- 3x SD card minimum! I can easily take thousands of pics per trip

- MUST MUST MUST have UNESCO site in each trip, else LILY NO GO!
Action nye..
- NOT into shopping! THUS, NO SHOPPING COUNTRY unless you tempt me with some UNESCO site as mandatory visit! Hehehhehee....

- DESPITE all of the above, I still manage to travel LIGHT! But no REAL backpacking trip as I injured my knee.

Enough about my travel-bringings.

In office; my cubicle is like a travel desk, colleagues tend to stop by to ask about travel, map, location, activities etc even to a country I have never been before, so much so that I can't bring home the map I received 2 years for my BIRD DAY. Bird day pressie is fully utilised & optimised by the whole floor of which I think Lisa gotten back her ROI if I were to charged everyone who uses it at RM1 per view, heehehhehe.... (Thanks Lisa, LOVE me map).

Wonders of the World & UNESCO sites are my main aim, will hunt for it at every country and cities I go. Crazy huh! YES! I voted in the New7Wonders campaign. And YES was very upset that Borobudur is not one of it nor was Angkor Wat. Shouldn't the nomination be base on the technology, resources & material being use that is NOT easily available during those period PLUS the age of the wonders.

A lot of folks been asking how I travel cheaply ESPECIALLY on transportation and I believe most of you knows the land part and on how to get about cheaply... BUT FLIGHT...hemm.... lemme share a secret....WELL! Not actually a secret SECRET, I bet most people already knew but for those that don't.... go to below links yah. HEAVEN!

This is abit expensive traveling hobby aside from those WEIRD adventurish stuff I love to do. Hard Rock Cafe shirt & shotglass!!! Sometimes I give it a miss as the cost can be a weeeeee bit expensive like the one in Stockholm! This site I got actually inform you the OPENING, REOPEN, CLOSE DOWN, RELOCATION of most HRC in the world. FANTASTIC! SOOOOO... those traveling, pandai pandai lar huh! Don't worry, I pay back wan...

By the way, I collect magnets as well...hehehheee.... MOST of my FRIENDS has been helpful lar.... ain't complaining so keep 'em coming!

This is the resort of my dream.... when lar I get t go..... sigh....BUT it's OK lar as I am contented with my traveling needs/places (BUT if dapat FREE, BEST lar jugak kan kan kan... hehehheee). OK! OK! OK! Need not necessarily be this Aman i-Khas, as long as any AMAN RESORT will do! HAHAHAHHAAA.... Belanda mintak tanah betul lar (proverb).

That's about it folks... as for the rest... let me dig my slides (YUP! I prepare slides for each trip!)
