The future

Alhambra. Granada, Spain

The future is so uncertain.
We could try to think and imagine it,
but we will never really know what is going to happen, be it near or far. 
Sometimes this uncertainty scares us deeply
and renders us helpless,
that we can do nothing but to ask Allah for the best.
And may He showed us the best path that He had planned for,
which might not always be what we wanted
but instead, what we needed.
So have patience, have faith. 

To travel is

to travel is
to get out of your comfort zone
to try things you’ve never done before
to go to the places that you’ve dreamed of
to be amazed at the creations and the Creator over and over again
to appreciate all the things that you have 
to seek answers to questions in life 
to find yourself. 

 

Spring Break Part 3 – The Netherlands

The main reason my friends and I decided to go to The Netherlands was because of Keukenhof, the flower garden. It is by far one of the largest gardens in the world! This garden is only opened during spring(late march till middle of may) and mainly people go there to see the pretty little tulips. Since I’ve been longing to see one, I better not miss this chance right? Surprisingly Keukenhof offers such a great number of tulips’ species. And we even found a tulip named Malaysia ! Apart from the tulips, this country also has such a beautiful landscape. There are canals everywhere. And very clean too. Then I started imagining if such canals are in my country too – how would it turned out to be? Then there are windmills which I’ve seen for the first time. It’s sad to hear that there used to be about 400 windmills in Dutch but now only ~40 remains. Well, this is what we call industrialization people… But one thing that I like about this country is that you’ll see loads of bicycle nearly everywhere. It’s their main transportation. I guess one of the reasons why it’s possible is because of the cool weather. Imagine if we cycle for 10 minutes on a hot and sunny day in Malaysia, we’ll totally be drenched with sweat. Which is not very practical…

 

Spring Break Part 1 – Belgium

Brussels

The capital city of Belgium is where my friends and I first set our feet. I remembered not enjoying the city so much because we didn’t really visit the popular attractions there. We just spent the day walking around the city and snapping some pictures that are worth taking.

Brugge

The scenery in Brugge is much much more captivating than in Brussels. This small town is like an old village and the air felt clean somehow. This is a MUST place to go when you visit Belgium.
