“Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love” – Rumi


In my younger years I am very much shy that some people said ‘I cannot break glass’! 😀 Well maybe, but unknowingly deep in my heart – I am a little bit adventurous. I do not fully believe in zodiac sign but yeah, I am a Sagittarius and personalities like freedom, adventure, travel and curiosity are inside me. But – I am not an extrovert type which the zodiac also describes Sagittarians. In nature I am an introvert who happens (which in the process) becoming to be an ambivert. I travel/go outdoors not that I have an itchy feet (because I didn’t) or loneliness, but because I have a purpose and one of my purpose is to discover/creating myself. So far it’s in progress and the goal is not just to know self but the mystery of life/world. lol – it was a secret then but now no more, char! 😀


Last year I made it a goal to do more adventures or the outdoors as well as once a year to give back and reflect. So I did it (Thanks GOD) and below are the best activities that I did last year. I share these experiences in order to inspire some that ‘whenever you set your mind to – you can do it’. As what Napoleon Hill quoted “What the mind can conceive must achieve”.

But in those span of time of your goals do not expect smooth roads; there are blocks, humps or detours as you go along. There are things will happen unexpectedly, well it depends – but yeah things like that. 🙂 It’s like this: I booked for vacation in the Philippines (included Malaysia for 5 days solo) all for one month in October but I didn’t go and the payments – I lost it! Anyway, it was a discounted trip and I paid it for 1,800dhs (total of all trips for two countries). 😀 Well, there is always another time or right time – someday to Malaysia…

I didn’t shared it in my blog or in my other social accounts that at the mid of 2017 I lost my job, but GOD is great I found another one. “If one door closes, there is another one opens”. Life is like that – just live life and expect many surprises. Try not to worry and do not expect much, but do not lost your dreams/visions in life. Do not be afraid to do some crazy things or be lazy. For me sometimes there are days that I need to recharge (as an introvert) and that makes me feel idle.

In my 2018 I still love to do some adventures in my 2017 activities, but maybe there are also more deep goals to reach. GOD bless for those! 🙂 But this time, I am trying hard to fulfill on this quotes: “It’s all about quality of life and finding a happy balance between work and friends and family”. quoted by Philip Green. And I have my version in this! “The quality of life is finding a happy balance between work, friends, family, self and your faith”.
