Tag Post- Travel

just realised That i was tagged by the fabulous mak Darya and since it is a Friday, hari paling malas nak kerja, I busied myself with these... Hohoho....

What made you start traveling?
Its the adrenaline rush, its how u feel when you count down to the date of your departure. Mengeletis semacam.

I don't have the privilege to travel when I was young. My dad used to sail in his golden years. He will show me pictures of all his escapades to different country.

"Bestnya yah!!!"

So that feeling to see the world has always been harboured in me. Once I earned my own money, the gate opens....

Where was your first plane ride to?
Cant really remember my first, maybe tu zaman jepun agaknya.. sampai tak ingat langsung either that or the plane was too short of a journey for me to recollect the memory.

I only remember my longest plane ride was to Sydney, Australia for my overseas attachment during my poly days. I was attached in Sydney for 2 months

Best memories to date.. sebab first time  dapat keluar kandang.

Where have you travelled to that you would love to visit again?
I don't mind going to all the countries that I have been again and again and again.

But If I was to choose just one, I will say Mecca, ini bukan nak action baik. Ini ikhlas from hati one.

Ny was just 2 when we went in 2013, my hati always tak tenteram. I always have to check on Ny. Every solat, my eyes try to catch a glimpse of her. When she moved, my heart skip a beat and I need to stop my solat and chase after her. Not all the time, Ada lah dua tiga kali. Nak gugur jantung. That's why I make it a point to sit and Solat next to families with children, so that Ny Ada friends to play with. I can concentrate doing my ibadah.

And while doing tawaf and sa'ie, carrying a back then 18kg kid on my hip is really no joke. I do have strangers offering to help carry Ny. Mati I kalau jorang bawak ker mana. S was with my dad. So its just me and my sisters to take turn to carry her.

So yes, if Allah SWT invite me again, I would love love love to go again.

What are 3 of your must have travel items? 
Passport, cash, phone tak kira eh... that one must have one.... necessities.

My 3 items:-
1. Camera - To capture all the memories
2. Wet wipes - MUST
3. Minyak angin - MUST MUST!!! Because I very the makcik makcik like that.

Window, isle or middle seat?
When I was single, of course lah window seat. Kan best feeling feeling tepi tingkap, can see the clouds, the rays, can see carebear, can see unicorn.

Now that I am a mum, isle seat is perfect!!!!!! Senang to keluar masok to use the toilet or to ask for hot water without any 'tsk' by S.

What place is on your 'places to visit next' list?
Oh the list can go on and on and on... I would love to go to LA, San Frans, Turkey, Istanbul, Venice, Italy, Rome...

Right now the little sis is in Frankfurt and she just text me like a few seconds ago 'Its so happening here Long, You would love it' so Frankfurt just made into the list.

Where would you travel just for the weather?
I love cool weather, I have 6 boots collecting dust in my storeroom and many winter wear together with snow caps, mufflers, gloves. So anywhere cold would be perfect for me, plus point my make up stays thru out the day.

All of the above minus the dry and dehydrated skin, peeling lips, cold sore, slippery walkways, frequent slipping, running nose that will often leads to sore throat asalkan dapat melaram with coats.

So yeah any county with cold weather would be great.

Do you have an interesting 'I'm lost' story?
I am always lost, lagi lagi with S.

But the best would be when the whole family got lost while we were in Paris. With heavy luggage, we went round and round the many many rues to look for our hotel. We left our Paris map in London, with all the notes and all. So we relly on lousy information counter maps that was written in French. 

U imagine makcik, pakcik, and baby kalau dah penat and dah lost. Imagine how kecoh it gets, plus the whining, the crying, the blaming.

By the time we found the hotel, We were so tired and when we saw the Eiffel tower from the hotel window my mum commented,

" Ah dah tengok kan pagar besi tu, dah puas, ah jom balik "

Where would you travel to just to eat the food?
Jakarta for nasi padang, and the tepi jalan satay stall... sedap menjilat pinggan.

Japan for the sushi and tokoyaki balls - Original punya... pasar malam punya tokoyaki kalah. Kalah Teruk!

Thailand for the tom yam and coconut ice cream.

France for the pastries and kebab on French loaf... Works I tell you.

Australia for their Australia meet pie.. Halal one of course.

Amsterdam for their Dutch pancake and fries with their marvelous mayo. Space cake not included.

Is there a place you would never go again?

I had a bad case of food poisoning when I was in Bandung. At that time I was 5 months pregnant with Ny.

" I am so not coming back here, never ever ever ever in the whole wide universe of the universetest "

And for the past 3 years I have been asking S to return to Bandung.

Not fair seh, I was sick mah, I can't enjoy all the factory outlets, of course lah I bingit. Jom lah kita go again "

If you could take one person with you to travel who would it be?
Me and Ny, we are one person.

My sisters, hand down. Both of them, I consider them as one person.

My youngest sis, she travel a lot so she is excellent with planning and maps and  directions.

The other sis, she is excellent with managing budget, and she always have lubang for best deals. She is a people person, excellent PR. With her, we often make new friends who will give us best tips.

How do you pass the time on the airplane?
When I was single, I will always have a book with me. When I am bored with the in flight entertainment, I will turn to my book.

But now with Ny, layan kan ajer.....

Are there other people whom you think would do this?
I don't have many bloggers frens. So who ever is reading this feel free to do this. You... Yes you.
