A few years ago, I fell in love with Photography.
Then, travel. Then, food…
So, I decided that I should write travel stories: a little bit of travel, food and lots of photo. The phrase ‘Free Soul in a Bird Cage’ resonates well because in our lives, we can be free as birds if we choose to be, yet we are still bounded in earthly chains.
Traveling make one wiser. You discover new things by going on a trip, immense yourself in the culture, history and the way of life; appreciate what we have and what we lack.
Traveling is a never-ending quest.
The harder you try to achieve, the more you realize how far away that dream is. It is a soul searching mission to find the missing pieces and trying to interpret what life means to different people. The only thing we discover is how little we know. (And we are already prejudice in our opinions.)
Remember your roots
Over the last few months, I have slowly realized how little I know about my home country; the history and heritage. On the personal level, I felt that I should understand more how my ancestors came about in the historic eras; the rise and fall of dynasties, kingdoms in Southeast Asia. Being in the region, we were influencers, we were influenced. We were conquerors, we were conquered. I am embarking on a journey to understand how history has shaped Southeast Asia and how it influenced mine.
