Following my post yesterday, May 4, 2017, I am also going to share specific photos from our travel to Malaysia last 2015. Due to time constraint, we did visit the place for 1 ½ day, see 3-4 places and almost missed our plane. Thanks to the kindness of a Half-Indian and Half-Chinese driver who pressed the car’s accelerator and take its speed to the airport. If you’re going to the said place, better to have 3-4 days of visit. Below here were the happy moments on that certain days:
For the whole travel, we did booked our flight going to Malaysia as our point of arrival. From there, we did took our night train over KTM Intercity train going to Malaysia and Singapore borders, then take our leave for a Singapore sightseeing for 2 days. Afterwards, our departure area was through Malaysia’s Airport, took a ticket for KTM Intercity train going back to the City of Kuala Lumpur.
If you’re going to ask me which City is much safer, I will say, Singapore it is. However, if ever you’re going to let me pick one of the 4 countries that I have been to, Japan is something I admired the most. Yet I will set Saudi Arabia aside since this one is a Holy place, and the most important place for us Muslim in the entire world.
The next trip, I want? I will still wanted to go back to Japan and see Hokkaido. A place located at the Southern part of the said country.
This will be my first entry for the Month of May. I haven’t had the chance to share my experience about our trip to Singapore and Malaysia last 2015. So I’ll be just sharing some pictures of our travel back then. Like anybody else, I did enjoy our trip thanks to Cebu Pacific Promo deals, and especially thanks to my friends. It has been one of many memorable things I had for the year 2015.
The following statements after this were entered in a certain contest last September. A friend of mine suddenly told me about a certain contest at TLC ASIA. This contest will give the winner the opportunity to go to Tokyo for 4 nights and 5 days travel. Without further ado, I did join on the said contest. After their deadline, I’ve waited and waited for a certain days hoping to win but it was kinda sad since I didn’t won the contest. Huhu…Maybe, better luck next time. So, Im just going to post in here to share my entry with everybody else.
It’s been years and years since I have been dreaming of going to the place they called “The Land of the Rising Sun”. I couldn’t remember what age I was in, but what I knew was that it all started with the word “anime”. I guess most of the people in the world already heard about this word. I was fond of cartoons since when I was young, but I was never been satisfied with watching cartoon made in America like that of Tweety Birds, Tom and Jerry, etc. One day, I’ve watched a certain anime, which I couldn’t remember what its title was, but from that day on, I was then so fascinated with it. I look and watch some of those kinds of anime year by year, until such time that I had seen my most favorite anime entitled “Samurai-X”. This anime was a story about a legendary swordsman, who wanders and help people. As I continue viewing this anime, I came further and further of having so much likings in Japan. Though this is an anime, but it tells some of the previews history of Japanese, and show much of its culture. My fond of watching so many anime series made me see the Japanese Culture little by little. In Japanese works even in this area, you can see some of wonderful culture, its people, and the way they deal with their day to day lives. For this reason, I could never lend my eyes off on watching anime, and even search further about the culture of where this anime originated. You can say I am a fanatic of anime culture, or in others words, I am an otaku.
I am now 27 years of age. I haven’t fulfilled what I opt to do, and that is going to Japan. One day, an English Teacher had mentioned me about something such as “going to another place is like going to another world”. This engraved inside my mind, and always remembered it whenever I am dazing off in dreaming of a wonderful adventure. Along with this was my dazzling vision of the day I will be in the said place. I would think it would be brilliant experience. I did planned to save up for this travel, but due to some circumstances, I didn’t. From day to day, I would tell my parents of my plan in visiting the said place, however, all they could think was a big doubt inside my head. They were saying that it is somewhat a big imagination, and that it seems an impossible for me to do. Yet this thing didn’t stop me from doing so. I believe that if a person really wanted something, he/she needs to put his/her effort to realize those dream. When I heard about this opportunity, I jumped with joy saying “At last, this is an opportunity!” God did gave me a sign, and this would be my chance. If this push through, this dream will really be biggest fulfillment in my once in a life time life.
There is that person whom I really loved to be with in this Travel, and that is MS. “Obar-Obar”. I meet her more or less four years ago. A very adventurous lady, who is in search of a most memorable experience. I like her for being such a person who really works hard for the cause of the things she really wants. She fights for what she believes in, and that is one of the things that I really adore in her. Aside from this, she showed me a kindness which I couldn’t find in many people around. She is true person and a friend. If I win in this contest, it would be surprise her. I could say I would like to give this as a form of a gift to her for all those things she have done.
I’ve been dreaming about going to the said place called Japan ever since when I was young. It’s been my greatest dream. I want to see their different kind of world, their rich culture, their technology and a lot of Japan’s wonderful thing that you can never see in any other place in the world. Mostly, I want to see the so called “Cherry Blossom”. I know this tree is growing in some part of the world like in Korea, China, etc but then, I wanted to see this tree at its full bloom in Japan.
I’ve been an avid watcher of anime that were created there, and maybe, this is the main reason why I was influenced in wanting to go to their place. Influenced by what I see and from the description they had in series of anime that promotes mostly their culture, and their other capabilities. I read about Japan and other information through reading magazine, websites, newspaper and books. I was thinking if ever this thing will be a dreaming coming true in the near future, it will be a great experience. In order to fulfil this, I was planning last year of saving much money in travelling, and from the way I calculated things by the means I have right now, I can’t reach the amount of money I needed for this year 2014 for this dream trip travel. However, a friend of mine suddenly brought this up. She also wanted to go there, and I was like “Hwaaaaat?” She did mentioned that the travel date will be possibly fall on April. I was thinking that this period were somehow great since I will be with someone on this travel, and that April were a great date going there since it’s Spring. Spring is where cherry blossom will make its way to bloom. Upon my mind roaming around, calculating the things I needed especially the amount that is needed, I was like loosen up because the travel will cost me more or less 70,000 php. Where I can get that money just for the stake of my dream, and that it is equivalent for only 5 days of travel? A very big amount to someone like me whose salary won’t make that much in three months to reach that certain amount. I WANT TO TRAVEL…huhuhu
How I wish there will be a certain contest that I can join in and that this amount will be the winning price? Or is there anyone who is kind enough to give a FUND for this travel? hehe I guess, if there is, if you need a detail of my trip or something that goes along with the line of reporting about the travel..I guess that won’t be a problem.
