Someone I used to know used to tell me that I’m a frog in a well. A metaphor used to describe a recluse who lives in her own world. Well, I kinda got fed up with the things ‘friends’ keep telling me. To most, I’m all talk and complains and no action.
Well, there are times I feel hurt. Just because I don’t react instantly towards sarcasm and just because I’m a person with sense of humour, and carve a smile on my lips each time I’m sneered at does not mean that I have no feelings to begin with. I don’t trash people face to face doesn’t mean I am okay with rude and insensitive comments hurled at me. It simply means that my parents taught me not to lower my standard to theirs and I very much prefer to distance myself from such people and stop being in their lives slowly.
Pretty much fed up with some people’s insensitivities, I kinda decide to ‘get out of my well’ with a huge bang. I used to stay home, and home only during school holidays, but not anymore. I stopped giving a damn about commitment and ‘people’ and I took FIVE roadtrips cum getaway in total with my boys in just one month. 3 media/sponsored trips and self-funded. It felt awesome. I like feeling awesome. And so I shall continue doing this…getting out and see the what the world have to offer.
One of the most recent road trip back in Dec 2013 was way up North, in Sungai Petani Kedah and I decided to play a little bit of Indiana Jones with my boys.
Visited the Lembah Bujang Archeology Museum.
Plenty of exhibits can be seen in the museum, dating back in the 4th-5th century.
Evidence of religious worship. Ganesha God sculpture.
Inscribed stone written in Sanscrit
Ancient accessories made from beads and shells.
There are plenty more exhibits that I would love to share, but I won’t be sharing em here. 🙂 If you’re interested to know more about this museum, do wait for my updates family’s travel blog, Travel with E.T.A
Until then, share with me your school holiday memories links in the comment section below, and I’ll be sure to visit them.
