A Memorable and Pathetic Journey

Today marks my first out-of-the-country trip. And it is a memorable, and at the same time, a pathetic journey.

This isn't really my first time to travel abroad. But the first one, in Singapore, to be specific, was with a "boyfriend" and the entire trip was his treat for me. I used to dream to be able to start exploring other countries by the age of 25, and the "boyfriend" paved the way to make that dream come true. In reality, I have made my first international travel. But deep within me, it didn't feel like an achievement at all. Relying on somebody else to make my dreams come true wasn't anything like actual dreams realized.

And so this is how my Malaysian trip has become a memorable one. It is my first out-of-the-country trip fished out from my own pocket. Who would have thought that for someone who have reached rock bottom in life, would still have dreams coming true in the future? Yes, I still consider this as a dream coming true, because I made this happen. Of course, it didn't happen when I was 25, and it wasn't really my first trip... But with all the events that unfold after that Singapore trip, who would want to have it as their first out-of-the-country memory?

Is it really that pathetic that I am being so emotional with my out-of-the-country experiences? I guess I'm really making a big deal out of it. And believe it or not, it's wearing me out.

Good thing I have good friends with me...

of the very first Malaysian signage we
could see. Hehehe! This is proof, we are
now at the Kota Kinabalu International
Airport, Sabah, Malaysia.

Plus, I'll also be having my pillar of strength in a few days time....
