plan for longhaul holiday 2011

i have been assigned by hubby to study this holiday plan, from the budgeting, number of days as well as the destination spot. as always he always underlined …. smart budgeting, halal food and time constraint.

on top of all that, he also emphasize for me to start briefing miza what she must learn from the holiday. he always tell us … this is not just about holiday, this is a life learning journey as well.

he is right, sometimes we go to places just to see and come back with empty content out of the place … memory only stays on the picture we happened to take.

in order to do that … i will have to bring miza to the library and browsing for books about these places so she can have a look, read about the places, the history about it and some pictures. we are hoping, once we land our feet there, she can easily match what are the things recorded on the memory bank and match it to what she actually will see.

we can not afford to travel to one place many times in our life, it might be once in a life time experience … who knows! but for miza … she might have many more opportunities to do so, we are hoping helping to set up the right platform on travelling journey will help her appreciate places in the world more.

holiday is not just about shopping, phototaking and eating …. it is more than that!

well … wish us all the best, that we can really afford this destination for this year longhaul holiday.

morning all … happy friday!

BleH! what a nice wrap up after obama long waiting visit to Indonesia which he called home, quoting his famous speech in front of prestigious university member ” balik kampung nih ……!” that create a masive respond from indonesian who happened to love him whole heartly.

this morning as usual i got my coffe and browsing news while reading my paper too. i almost choked the whole out of my coffee when i stumble upon Yahoo news about this trending topic. quickly i go inside twitter and facebook … HollyCow! this silly topic had actually been a treding since yesterday among the media socielitie in Indonesia that capture international attention and cook it even more with the news on their own country’s publishing tools.

what a world we live in …. i could not say more! my only hope when Indonesia will grow up wiser to understand the real root of their problem … Don’t talk about the country … but their individual self FIRST!

#prayforindonesia…. continuesly and endlessly until the light shine on them… God Bless you Indonesia.
