Halo 2018

So I do update this blog once a year from 2016.

Self-reflection post I supposed.

2017= Dramatic. That word I used for summary.

Nevertheless I must say 2017 has been nice and definitely a better year than 2016.

Two times back to back President Club Award, one time is lucky, two times is ? Yes, you still need luck, and  have faith. Very strong faith- in God; in people who bring me up, bring me down; myself, not too much as I grow up, I realize I don't even believe in myself.

To me 2016

I try....

I did not try. I abandoned this blog. I should have continue since my last post, where I went to Europe in 2016. But I didn't.

A wrap up for 2016 is a must. 2016 has been very pleasant yet tough to me. Full of drama in works, personal, and health.

It started with the announcement where I was the best performer in 2015 and the reward was a trip to Berlin. Definitely the proud moment in my life and I never expect this came to me. A Libra like me always believe in equality and aspire to be equally good to others all my life in whatever I do. But this is definitely a gift from God. I made the wish and He heard me. I make this wish again and I know he hears me.

2016 was a very tough and competitive year for work. A lots of changes in people and matters. Filled with self-doubts, inner conflicts. Everyday when I woke up, the only thing I pray to God that it is a beautiful day, please grant me the strength to embrace all challenges.

I am grateful that all the people in my workplaces are so supportive in all my executions and requests. I have been very demanding and set very high expectations to myself. I am being very harsh to myself, indirectly to the people who work with me. But they really love me with all hearts, without questioning me, without hesitation, they pull me up when I was down. They hold my hand when I was lost.

Then finally the trip came.

EcWanderlust_Guten Tag Europe

Never realize I have abandoned my blog for so long and this is the first post in2016. I am guilty when I start to blog, the intention is not to share my happiness but to minimize some negative feelings in me at this moment, kind of some soul healing ways for me.

When I was sorting out the photos, all that great memories flashed back in my mind and the feeling is still so strong and intense. There are almost 1.2k or more photos from my phone alone, 11 days wandered from Germany to Slovakia. It was so short for me and I never know I could do it. All alone by myself.

This trip was planned 2 months before my departure and the ticket was funded by my company ( I guess this is the first time I mentioned about my work here ? )

Yup, I was the best sales person in 2015 and won the award called President Club Award (PCA). The reward- I got to go GERMANY ! Berlin is the HQ.

I was not excited or expect anything gonna happen since I won it , all the way until the award dinner night . I also did not feel worried, panic about backpack alone to Prague and Vienna, all alone. I also did not do much itinerary planning where to go, what to do for my extended trip. That's me- esther chung is wanderlust (EcWanderlust) . No expectation for what is coming to me, I just take whatever comes to me and accept what would happen next.

I do not know where to start the story of the journey. What opening should I put?

I am so grateful and blessed for what I have been gifted. I made a wish to God last year that I will travel to Europe this year or before I am 30, at that time I did not know if I will win PCA, I just made the wish that I have to travel this year out of Asia. And this year kick off meeting, I was announced as the winner. At that moment, my only feeling is, okay.. I am the one who going to Berlin.. alright .. that's all... I also did not expect that I can do solo backpack, I just extended the trip and planned after that, 2 months before I departed.

I am now 29 - 2 months. I am so blessed that my life, from I started to work, I got my car, I got a job that I love, I owned a house last year, and I've been to Europe this year. Everything is so completed and fabulous, before I am 30 years old, as a modern working lady today in this society.

I asked God recently, for me to meet a man who appreciates me all by his genuine heart, I do not know is this too hard, too demanding to ask. I am still looking for the answer. Of course, I always know there are so much of you who love me unconditionally, give me hugs, foods, wines, or just silent company whenever I am having low tide and down moment. I can't express how much I appreciate it, I always pray and love everyone more than they love me, somehow, it always hidden deep in my heart, sometimes I can't even see it too.

Danke everyone. Because of you, I am standing right here. Because of you- who loves me, who hates me, completed who I am today.

Stay tune for my fantastic journey from this blog.

I live my way (10)_Pulau ketam 2D1N_staycation

Haze season continues and we got adhoc escape plan to Pulau Ketam #crabisland #hazerunner

I prebooked the homestay from Water Village Pulau Ketam through FB, after tried a few online available hotels were fully booked.

But when we arrived there, the same hotels still have rooms available, perhaps reserve for those walk in visitors. In fact there are many other budget hotels available, I snapped a few looks proper and good rate, view the contacts image below.

breakfast before departure . klang must eat #bahkuteh

 We left our cars in front of the police station. holiday so is parking free. safety wise, park at your own risk but we park in front of police station, I believe in our PDRM
just can get your ticket here , no booking required.  

 we took the ferry with aircon, RM7/person, you can choose to take speed boat . 10min faster.
 we transfer at the first terminal (refer below) to this wooden fish boat because our homestay is a bit further. FOC

 upon arrival .. they were drawing ...
we cannot find the homestay , it is just 2 doors away from the school.

 this place is so familiar to me because I grown up at fisherman village too ... so #homesick #homefeel


 checked in our homestay. Because no one is check in on the same date so we just occupied the house and took 3 rooms.

 bicycles available

 no astro and wifi available. perhaps they can upgrade in future. No aircon as well... that's the set back . 
but telco coverage still fine, just prepare more data .
But the gathering is meant for re-bonding, so back to #phonefree, chit chat or you can do cycling outside

grabbed our late lunch at one of the restaurent
 we walked the whole round of the place before dinner. one of the ports

  the landmark
 Here is the main terminal I supposed. You can see this hotel is the largest hotel in Pulau Ketam and staying this area is more convenient for foods because this is like the town for them. 
Otherwise, you gonna walk from our homestay about 15 min
 some of the hotels we explored

 childhood memories. Syrup ice stick with coloring and flavouring only but we ate like vitamin when we were young
 too hot ! my favourite #icecream #potong #durianstillthebest
 the town street
 outside our house.. again my childhood memory .... collect the crabbies LOL or fishing them ...

 Maybank is available =)
  we reserved BBQ dinner with the owner and here is it. RM25/pax

 all talented chefs were here

 the owner claimed the crab is high price due to low supply, we reserved foods for 10 pax , RM250 for 7 of us ...  
apparently stomach is not satisfied... we cooked some instant noodles , bought from the grocery next door....

 cycling under the moon

#breakkie before take ferry back to klang . The hawker stall actually just at the school canteen, highly recommended by the local ... #laksa

#restless face
 thank you for making the trip ended well :) #sandakian #tokoksdk

 Back to Klang, grab lunch at this industrial place ... damn good !
