2017 has been a game changer for me. It all started when I left my corporate job last mid-December of 2016 then took a winter break in Japan during the holidays. Who knew that I will start the first day of my year 2017 in my most favorite country? Even I was not expecting this opportunity, much less visiting Japan.
My year 2017 started out GREAT! And so, I have decided to end it with a great big BANG!!! Hail and hooray for these cheap promo fares. It’s thanks to them that I get to travel a lot! These few weeks, I was so busy booking our activities and accommodations here and there. Due to this busy schedule, I haven’t posted a blog this week at all and on any of my social media.
So what’s with my year-end 2017?
I’M GOING TO LANGKAWI!!
I will be visiting 2 countries in a row!!! I know many travelers have done this before, but it’s my first time! That’s why I’m really excited to share this!
The original plan was for me and my friend to visit Malaysia again, specifically Langkawi and George Town. We already went there last 2015, and we were in George Town for just a day. This time we wanted to stay for a 2 day trip in George Town and 3 days in Langkawi. BUT we find our schedule too tight due to the fact that we’ll be wasting hours on flights in addition to taking other transportations. We just scrapped this idea in the end.
The final destination we’ve decided is to spend our 5 days in Langkawi! Yay! And this time we’ve got a new companion, so it’s us three against Langkawi!
I really only want to do zip line activities in Langkawi but I got so amazed at the spots we can see and activities to do at this little haven. We’ll go island hopping riding a jet ski, cross bridges atop the mountains, visit a geo-forest park and etc. I can’t wait to splurge on some cheap foods at the night market there! I definitely will be buying lots of sweet stuff! SO watch out for my post about Langkawi around the month of January!
So what’s the second country? Well, it’s not that big a deal because it’s just…
VIETNAM – HERE I GO!!
Sad news is, it’s another solo trip for me, which means I have no one to take pictures of me. I’m kinda shy asking strangers to take a shot of me and I’m not that comfortable being my actual self when photographed by others. It just feels weird and I’m sure some of you can relate to me in this kind of situation.
Recently, I noticed that my travel expenses are so high that it leaves me with no savings at all. In the end, I just decided to-
I STARTED AN E-COMMERCE BUSINESS!!!
MY HOMEBASED WORK AND BLOGGING
Let’s just say I really love working, maybe I should say working is my passion in life. I think this is a better term. One thing I miss when working at an office is the rows of food shops I pass by the area. But more than that I am so glad there are no bosses to follow, no hellish commutes, no stressful clients and most of all no wasting of my time every single day. My time now can be put to good use like doing what I want in life, my dreams and adventures. Let’s just say I’m not really suited for office life. I think I realized this when I first worked at an office.
When it comes to home based work I’m so free from the power ladder environment. What I can say is, this is far better than when I was in the office!
As for blogging, at first I was sure about doing this, but then… I am not that good at writing essays or long paragraphs like this. But I am still learning and doing the best I can. My English may not be that great or perfect, but I hope I am delivering what I want to my readers.
Starting this blog was kind of rough, in a day there were only less than 30 people viewing my blog. I’m just happy that this time it’s double the amount. I did stop blogging for a month since I need to organize my summer trip in Japan, it was a busy week during those days.
What have you got this year 2017? Are there also new things you tried or already started? I hope we all will have a very beautiful and a full happy year this 2017.
The year is ending so what are your new plans now? Time flies fast does it not? Even I have repeatedly said that this was such a fast year. Comment below and share your thoughts. How was your year?
