256: Sunrise @ Kuala Lumpur

Sunrise @ Kuala Lumpur, if there's something that I have noticed in (where I was) Malaysia it's that the life begins at 7AM. In fact, I have a photo where in by 6:00AM their street is still clear of cars and just few people are around. I'm not sure if it's because the sun rises quite later than in Manila. But whatever the reason maybe, I find it really tranquilizing. Soothing from the usual busy early mornings in Philippines. This is even more evident when we went at Putrajaya and stayed in Marriott; the hotel itself is dead by 5.30AM. The lobby is clear of door man, no staff in the reception area, and the lights are dimmed. Believe it or not, I think I didn't even see a guard roaming around the entrance of the hotel.

Don't take me wrong there's nothing wrong in busy mornings and relaxed ones. It just amazes me how different things are. This is what I love about in what I do, waking up in the morning and just experiencing foreign cities and I can do a comparison on where I currently am and where I live. Countries, cities have their own uniqueness. Didn't Marcel Proust once said that 'The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes'? And I found that quote true. Where I live in the Philippines, and where I was in Malaysia was like looking and experiencing an unfamiliar color for the first time.

Looking forward in waking up to a different city again next time.

255: Putrajaya, Malaysia: Marriott Hotel - Business as Usual

This is the Marriott hotel that we stayed in at Putrajaya, Malaysia to attend a training. I wish I could say something that will do justice of how it felt like to spend time here in this five star hotel. The service is incredible. The food can't be compared. The amenities is superb. It is indeed an experience worth to share with friends and love ones. The Marriott hotel in Putrajaya ( stays true to its promise to give its guests an experience that is unforgettable. It's location, albeit a bit far from the city, the hotel has free shuttle service to bring their guests to different cities (like KLCC, Alamanda, etc.,). If I could say anything about the place, it's the fact that it confuses me if I am in indeed in Malaysia or in Dubai. Not that I have seen Dubai personally, but if I compare it to the pictures that I have seen of what Dubai is, then Putrajaya is at least in my opinion at par. It is absolutely breath taking!

This is what I love about what I do -- part time -- to say. I mean, if I get to enjoy a luxury vacation, get paid to live a lifestyle, and be surrounded with great people, why not. I love my choices. It is indeed an amazing experience bar none. I am looking forward to next travel experience again!

254: Small Decisions

And here I am back from Malaysia.

I am not going to apologize for being away, because I realized that whenever I fail to update my journal or my blog I keep on apologizing. I find apologizing for being busy and not making time an excuse for being a procrastinator.

I know that it's a conscious decision of mine to be away and to procrastinate so I shouldn't be too apologetic about it. So yeah.

A post about my Malaysia week will be posted next time. You guys, you should visit Malaysia and not just see the overrated (but reasonable) Kuala Lumpur (KLCC) but also the outskirts in that country. I found a state that's almost as similar to Dubai, and I swear it's breath taking!

Anyway, before I end this entry, I found that quote I've made above just right for what I went through. It's so true! Although, making a decision might make us feel uneasy, but one way or another we should make that (small) decision to do something even if the future of taking that decision is unknown. We just need to have faith that the things that happens in our life will lead us to that path, and cliche as it may sound, it happened because it has a reason. So don't be afraid, do make that decision.

I do not own the quote by the way, just the graphics and the photo.
