Metallic Chair

A little something I wrote while waiting for my flight in Heathrow, London which perhaps many of you experienced before. Especially now because of COVID.

For many people, flights can be scary yet, everyone gets an exhilarating feelingContinue reading “Metallic Chair”

Wind

So, what if dreams are only but a fantasy? The truth of life is only an illusion that can easily break with one breath, just like a cold breeze on a warm summer day. You lay on the beach embracing the warmth of the sand, and while you immerse yourself in the sound of theContinue reading “Wind”

People being humans

The current situation in the world showed us how no matter our background, lifestyle, status etc. we are all humans with the same bodies, minds, souls, and spirits. It is easy to forget what it means being a human but I believe travelling does give us the opportunity to rediscover humanity. Advance technology and globalizationContinue reading “People being humans”

From a young age, I have been a very independent person. In my childhood, I would often participate in various extracurricular activities, and one of them was being a scout.

A Journey through English

For those whose first language is not English, I’m sure you all remember the very first time you had to speak in English.

But since English is the international language, it’sContinue reading “A Journey through English”

Dreaming Again

While on the road, I often encountered people who, in one way or another, were working hard towards their dreams. Though one would wonder, what dreams really are.

It’s never too late

It’s never too late Sometimes when traveling, you get to be anonymous and become a stranger among strangers. But strangers can become your friends, lovers, heroes, or inspiration. Although I was born in a generation where women are much more privileged than in the past, as a woman, I experienced moments that made me realizeContinue reading “It’s never too late”

Being Anonymous

When traveling, you often get to see sights of considerable significance to the country. You get to learn about remarkable people that, in their own way, brought glory to their country. But I have to say, being anonymous sometimes feels more glorious than being someone. As a traveller, I often seize the joy and beautyContinue reading “Being Anonymous”

The struggles of an introvert

In general, there are two types of people, attention seekers, and attention avoiders. I’ve always been part of the latter. I was always content being in the background and having a supporting role.

Happiness is the key

A smile can be a powerful tool. Although it’s an asset for happiness, it can also bring forward sadness, anger, or embarrassment. Globalization indeed created a world that often has no borders. Friendships and relationships now can easily be found everywhere because of mutual understanding. But often, there are moments of misunderstandings or awkwardness becauseContinue reading “Happiness is the key”

When travelling, we often face surprising situations. During my time in China, unexpectedly, my friend was required to go back to her work.

Snowfall

Travelling is all about experiencing new things. Cultures, customs, traditions, food, and lifestyle. In my case, during my first visit to Budapest, I got to experience winter.  Like everyone else, I associate snow with Christmas, Santa Claus, reindeers, decorative lights, and fresh-baked cookies. But during my time in Budapest in mid-January 2017, I got toContinue reading “Snowfall”
