Once you hit your 20s, work and deadlines will be part of your day to day. This certainly happened to me.I met different people from other cultures, and I also start to appreciate the little things in life, such as my parents financing the things I needed. But when work comes and the paycheck is in, it’s time to learn to save, or start spending as if there was no tomorrow. A lot of what I earn ends up on many things other than bills, which may be the case of many. After all, money is meant to be spent, right?

Somewhere in between, I will share how I was involved in the Kaamatan Festival at Kampung Mandurian.

Delicate People of an Elegant State : Sabah, “Land Below The Wind”

Me, Miza…

For a city girl, when one mentioned the word Sabah, the image that would come to my mind would be a state with no skyscrapers. Public transportations would be difficult. It would not be easy to find good restaurants. No malls to shop. But the most frightening part would be the language barrier.  How would I find my way if I am lost there? What about the people? Would they be helpful if I needed help?  All these have been playing in my mind for the past few years, and were some of the reasons why I didn’t travel to Sabah.  It may sound childish to some, but I must admit I am a coward at uncertainties.

Vacation in 2010 @ Kundasang, Sabah

I first came to Sabah in May 1989. I came for a good reason, to spread knowledge among youngsters. Never have I imagined that I will simply fall in love with this Land Below The Wind, Sabah. May, 1994, I returned home. Back to my own state, Johor Darul Ta’Zim in Peninsular Malaysia.
