A book launch @ Marmalade Cafe...

"It takes some courage to stand up and speak, it takes even more courage to open your mind and listen..."

(Three travel books, a personal experience)

We were invited to a book launch at Marmalade Cafe in Bangsar Village.

Rumaizah Abu Bakar is a blogger friend who used to blog under her nickname Hazia. She has written three travel books based on her personal experience overseas. Her latest book launch was attended by her families and closed friends.

I am privileged to be invited and have all three books signed.

Applied Science gang TTS...

"Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day..." - Jim Rohn

It was difficult to get friends to come together for TTS nowadays. They are too busy making a living that they forget to make a life.


SIC girls rendezvous...

"People too weak to follow their own dreams will always find a way to discourage yours..." 

(Sisterhoods since 1973, SIC girls hostelites)

When I was in Form 4 and Form 5 I used to stay in the hostel. in the 70's the Sultan Ismail College was dominated by boys then and the girls were only a handful. So it was not a surprise if the boys had a proper hostel buildings with dorms and lockers whereas the girls got to make do with an old rented bungalow to house the few of us. There were 4 bedrooms cramped with double-deckers and a large living hall for our prep. 

I registered late and was allocated a small store room with a single bed without any lockers. And for that two years, my room became the HQ for the Big5...

Cambodia Solo RIde...

"When a goal matters enough to a person, that person will find a way to accomplish what at first seemed impossible..." - Nido Qubein

(About 10 km from the Cambodian border)

Date: 6 - 16 February 2015
Route: KL – Surat Thani – Samut Songkhran – Koh Kong – Sihanoukville
– Koh Chang – Pattaya – Chumphon – Hatyai - KL
Total distance: 4,060 km

We took time off from our routine life to go for a 11-day solo ride to Cambodia.

On the third day of our journey we crossed the Thailand/Cambodia border at Hat Lek and stayed a night at the border town of Koh Kong. The next day we took a 4-hour bus ride to Sihanoukville, one of the pristine seaside resorts of Cambodia.

After we crossed back to Thailand we rode to the Laem Ngop Pier and took the ferry to the island of Koh Chang situated at the Gulf of Thailand and stayed there for two nights at the White Sand Beach and spent a whole day exploring the island.

Our next destination was Pattaya where we stayed for two night at the Siam Country Club. We visited the floating market, the beach and the Pattaya Bike Week site where we met a lot of bikers from all over the world...

It was a hot tiring journey but so many moments from this experience will stay in my head for a long time. And I will be updating my travel blog once I settled down and rested my tired muscles…
