An Open Letter to the Passengers and Crew of #MH17

I may not know you personally, nor bumped into you at least once but I want to tell you that you will all be missed.

That exact moment when you packed your bags and ready to board the plane, I know how your heart pounds and the cold feet you had before the plane took off.

The smile you have flashed at the boarding gate, the hugs you have shared on the departure gate and the hands that you have firmly gripped before you leave… Every memory of you will always be cherished.

Whoever did that you all of you I hope they will be punished, JUSTICE WILL PREVAIL. Continue reading

Travel Essentials Must-Haves

Aviary Photo_130495685837962718

I have been travelling approx. 4-5 times a year. For a vacation; To visit my friends; to my own hometown; to my friends next pajama party.

2 years ago, I pack each and every single thing in my vanity drawer, and I have realized that some of them aren’t actually what I really need and I am just over packing. I know you will be saying that “it’s better to be ready than sorry”, but if you are actually travelling back and forth you wont be needing those unnecessary things.

I have one rule when packing my traveling essentials and that is…

“Don’t bring those that you can just buy on the place that you’re going to”

I have 1 pouch which I only use when traveling, inside it are my travel must-haves and all of them are not more than 100ML so that there would be no problems when flying, I prefer hand-carry rather than checking-in, I really hate waiting at the baggage counter just to get my things. But we are all different, if its going to be a long-haul flight I’d rather check my luggage in and just relax when I board the plane.

“It feels good to travel light!” Continue reading

“Traveling is the only thing you buy that makes you richer. “

1. You cannot buy memories. – During your first plane ride, I know you can still remember how your heart pounds when the plane is about to take-off. A simple memory like this is something you can’t buy, the feeling, the sweaty palms, the nausea you’ve felt, the wonderful “i-feel-like-flying” you experience; All of these cannot buy with money.
