I find most folks in Malaysia has a hobby of traveling oversea. Not only travel oversea but to make sure they cover the whole map, if possible, like if there is a medal or reward waiting for them at the end. Well, if you have extras and travel oversea with your love ones, once in a while, is romantic and fun thing to do for the whole family. But if to travel on loan, I would think twice.
I have seen folks with leaking roof and pipe, washing machines that hiccups when used, wear and tear of cars and house that need attention, but they would rather saved up to travel first. If they have extra after the trip, then it goes to plumbing and repairs.
Is it that important to show others that they have step foot to all the places on the map. Once a friend wrote on facebook that she long to experience winter and another friend wrote something that sounded like as if it is a big deal that this friend of mine had yet to experience it. Like it is compulsory to experience all four season abroad.
Vacations, to me, are to have a great time with love ones and photos of vacation are to remind me of what a good time we have together. If travel on loan will mean misery after the trip. Isn't our purpose in life is to be happy? I wouldn't be happy after a vacation if I have to come home to a leaking house or pipe that is not working.
Well, different folks have different priorities and traveling abroad is definitely not mine. Thanks for reading. So, what are your priorities?
