When My Mind Brings Me to Somewhere Else

When My Mind Brings Me to Somewhere Else


Assalammualaikum dan Hi My Sugarpeeps!,

Today Malaysians have to face another MCO. Out of a sudden, my mind becomes like a bird. It brings me to other places. Birds. They can fly anytime they want, right? Birds never know what is going on today. They don't understand why people do social distancing, sanitize their hands often, and wearing the mask all the time.

Well, that the point. We're human. We can't fly so simply from Wilayah Persekutuan Labuan to Kuala Lumpur or from Kuala Lumpur to Johor Bahru without an airplane. Nowadays, find the perfect flights from Kuala Lumpur to Johor Bahru also not easy like before.

After Ramadhan is over, Muslims all nationwide celebrating Eid al-Fitr to marks the end of the Islamic holy month fasting of Ramadhan. 2021 is a second-year Eid celebrated in 'new normal' nationwide.

Because of Pandemic Covid-19. So many Malaysians are emotional responses when the government announces MCO 3.0 on Aidilfitri. They feel vulnerable, deeply stressed, and facing mental anguish. Because they can't back to their hometown and celebrate Hari Raya with their beloved family.

That makes my mind keep asking when we can travel abroad again on holiday. It's stressful because the rules around Covid-era travel restrictions change rapidly. I also questioned myself if we allow traveling, is it safe? Or maybe it just my overthinking maniac mental talking. Lol.

To be honest, I miss Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. Like a lot! I just want to have a good time outside Labuan with my loved ones. Since the pandemic, my mind always brings me somewhere else. Not only KK. Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru, and Negeri Sembilan also appear in my head.

Why Kuala Lumpur? Kuala Lumpur was my dream place when I was 17 years old. There is someone who inspired me to be obsessed with the name of Kuala Lumpur.

When I was 21, I was there with my friends. We hangout and had fun. But, I accidentally created bitter memories in Kuala Lumpur. I should stay at my best friend's house then we fought about something. So, I left her. I stay in a hotel in Masjid India, I chose a random staycation in KL because I don't have enough time to pick. It's getting dark.

2011 : With them. May Allah Protect and Bless.

Talking about Staycation KL, there so much difference to compare. Nowadays, the accommodation is so conducive, beautiful design, online working friendly because they have free wifi, and the interior design super photograph friendly. That's amazing.

2011 : Ghost House, Berjaya Times Square, Kuala Lumpur.

People in Kuala Lumpur must take advantage to stay at any staycation KL just for doing the work. Since pandemic did not allow people to work together with a colleague together in the office. I think it's a great idea if we can't focus on working at home with children and family.

2011 : Had fun in Berjaya Times Square Mall, Kuala Lumpur.

If not for work, I think it's also great for having a rest time for mental. Since we very stress because of the pandemic situation today. If not for now, after MCO for sure!

2011 : Watched some movie in Cinema with friends.

I think Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Kuala Lumpur is a good choice for relaxing with a family member. The facilities are comfortable and suitable for relaxing in the swimming pool.

If you want to have a walk and have fun, there are famous nearby places such as Bukit Bintang, Petronas Twin Tower, and Sunway Lagoon Theme Park. If you're shopping type, You can go to Berjaya Times Square Shopping Mall. It's just 93m from your hotel.

When My Mind Brings Me to Somewhere Else ✨-Story :⌨️

When I was in Kuala Lumpur, I almost take a bus to go to Johor Bahru to meet my old friend. Then, I change my mind. I canceled the plan. I felt afraid and overthinking because I'm alone. People said I'll take 8 hours on the bus before arriving in Johor.

Now, I regret my decision not to visit Johor back then. Lol. There are the best places to visit in Johor. My online friends from Semenanjung Malaysia always share beautiful locations in Johor like Pantai Desaru, Pantai Stulang Laut, Danga Bay, Pulau Sibu, Pulau Rawa, and much more wonderful place.

No need to worry about accommodation in Johor Bahru today. Piece of cake to check Johor Bahru Hotel online. We can try Traveloka to booking the room to stay. I'm sure you have the list of favorite types of accommodation in your head. Hehe.

Talking about the 'favorite type' list. Port Dickson also one of the places on my visit list. I think Port Dickson also a nice place to create new sweet memories with loved ones. What appears in my mind right now is Rantau Eco Park.

Rantau Eco Park is located in Kampong Kuala Sawah Pasir. There is a powerful attraction to nature. You want to connect with nature? In my opinion, this place is the right choice beside Hutan Simpan Port Dickson in Hutan Simpan Sungai Menyala.

If you are a photography type person like me, who loves to capture moment thru the lens of the camera, there are suitable places for you. It is an Alive 3D Art Gallery and Rumah Terbalik in Port Dickson.

Those are some places in my mind. If you need a simple, relaxing, and easy trip, you can enjoy your trip at Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson. There are famous and great nearby places in the area. It's Blue Lagoon Beach, Funny House Port Dickson, Extreme Park, or Cape Rachado Lighthouse. If you want to enjoy the historic site, you can go to A Famosa.

Wow... my mind brings me 'fly' to A Famosa. Haha. I hope people who love to travel a lot can travel freely again soon. For now, stay safe and stay healthy physically and mentally. Thanks for reading what's going on in my mind.

With Love,
