Here we go again ...

To me, one perk of my current job is the travel I get to do. Life's too short to spend cooped up in the office, or even within the same place or country.

I personally believe that humans have a spirit ingrained within us to travel and discover. Our basic curiosity takes us to places we've never been, to try food we're not familiar with, to discover cultures beyond our own.

Today marks the start of a road journey that will take me to between 8 to 11 cities in the next 2 months or so. This week, I'm headed to Singapore.

Somewhere within that time, I hope that I'll still find the time to see you blow out your birthday cake, and get your scroll for those 4 years of toil, while I realize the adventure I'm looking forward to.

While driving here today, my dad was telling me how he used to cycle 5 miles to attend school, because grandpa couldn't afford the 9 ringgit train fare for a school term's worth of train rides from Malim Nawar to Kampar. In our generation, we've both come very far from that.

I live a charmed life, and for that, I feel blessed and good. Remind me to think about my dad's daily toil to attend school whenever I feel short of inspiration.

So, to the blogpals who see my comments thinning, it's really because I only have time to read your blogs nowadays. I'm still hanging around, but with time coming at a premium, I can't comment on every blog I come across ..
