One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

i have been to, lived in, and seen the the many beautiful islands of Maldives... it's really paradise and not even the beaches of my country can beat that. :) i'm lucky to experience the (many) 5-star plus luxury resorts in Maldives... water villas, infinity pools and all... unfortunately not as a tourist. haha. but as a work permit holder! but lucky and blessed just the same! :)

i have bungy jumped in Chiang Mai! one off the bucket list but will SURELY NOT do again! :D

i've taken long flights and short flights, rode a seaplane, speedboat, luxury yacht, dhoni boats, pump-boats, row boats, i've walked, taken an 8-hour bus to cross cities, a night-train, a 14-hour bus ride! swam and rowed (pushed?) a kayak to cross islands. i've been bitten by a jellyfish, got stuck in a non-smoking airport for 7 hours! slept in the car, got lost high up on the foggy mountains in the dark --- the world is a beautiful place and i've yet to see the rest of it! :)
