It started of with a horrendous traffic jam. Cars were lined up 5 times the normal queue. Everyone was easing they way into traffic. There’s just something about Malaysian drivers who can make 5 lanes out of 3 lanes. Amazing isn’t it? And it’s all due to a small fender bender, which the two cars involved were already at the road shoulder and not affecting traffic. Another amazing thing about Malaysian drivers, they are a very
busy body caring lot who would slow down to ensure that you are ok .. or rather to check on your status, and probably come up with how the accident occurred.
But all is well. The morning was beautiful.
The sky is so blue!
And the sun was out to play.
Too bad we are near the equator. It was also a very warm morning. It would be really nice if the temperature was something like 16 degrees or something like that. It would be wonderful isn’t it? hehehe.

No, not one of these online digital journals where you upload and have everyone read about it. I am talking about personal hardcopy journals you write about what you did. Well, actually it’s exactly the same as a blog where you pen down your thoughts or document your recent travel. Except that instead of typing it out and uploading photos, you actually use a pen or pencil or both, or even with a combination of coloured pencils/pen/markers to create a journal entry.
How many of you actually keep a journal then? I have always wanted to keep one. While I was travelling around Europe during my university days, I started one. But that did not get past the first day. Sad. :S
I was thinking of putting down into words where I have been in Europe. What kind of preparations I did, where I got my tickets and how much were they. What was the exchange rate then. What kind of train I took. How was the ride. Was it fun? What kind of food I ate. How was the weather. Who are the people we met. Those sort of things. Plus, it was supposed to also be a escapade tracker to remind me where I went. In hindsight, I should have actually kept a journal. Right now I have forgotten where I have been. I look at some of the photos I took and I cannot remember where it was taken. And why I took that particular photo.
Right now my life is so monotonous that there’s almost no need for a journal. I do not think a crab-eating escapade to a nearby seafood restaurant would be interesting enough to keep a journal. But still, it’s something I have always wanted to do. So, I’ll start a journal. But let’s see how long this one lasts.
