On traveling solo: finding self 75 miles away from home

I fantasize about travelling solo all the time but never really had the time to do it. The desire to travel solo has grown stronger lately especially with all the stress at school and life in general - but let's not go there. A couple of weeks ago, I finally messaged a friend of mine telling her: "I just booked a room for spring break! I'm really doing it this time!" and here I am right now, writing this post in a beautiful inn right across the Pacific Ocean ran by a sweet innkeeper, Jeff. 

I wasn’t planning to make this trip a spiritual one but God works in wonder and I knew for sure that it wasn’t by coincidence the topic of my bible study (that typically looks like this) for the past couple of days is something along the line of how to reconnect with God (and to hear His voice). My sweet Ahjuma, Danialle, recommended a book by Henry Cloud to bring for my trip, she also sent me a couple of questionnaires that I have to fill out during the trip and a one-day schedule that I have to follow. God bless her heart.

So where should I begin? (This is gonna be a long post, don’t say I didn’t warn ya.)

Twenty Fifteen so far..

Moi lovely homies gave me a surprise (belated) birthday cake during our NYE party <3

Cos it's the "New Year New Me" moment, I'm gonna pretend to give blogging another go! The year started with a little "medical" trip to Penang, a town I love to hate, hate to love, with both of my parents. Thank God we all came back healthier than ever! During the trip, I managed to take a little solo adventure in Georgetown to hunt for those infamous hidden murals by Zacharevic. Unlike many other big cities, Penang is not the best (safest) place to walk around but tracking down those murals in Georgetown sure was a fun idea cos they're all so well hidden and it almost felt like treasure hunting.

Can't believe that it's only a few days left before I go back to San Francisco. One of my New Year's Resolutions this year is to get back into photography so I ordered myself a Pentax K1000 on Amazon and it should be there by the time I'm back :') Can't wait to get my hands dirty on it. In the mean time, I'm gonna enjoy the rest of the time with my family and stuff some more food into my face. I hope you all have a wonderful start of 2015!
