"The spring is here, yet it still rains. When the rain stops, joy comes. The sun and moon gradually rises. The old gives way to the new. To see through this is like going through the Dragon gate. The God and Buddha aid you." No. 20 fortune from the Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple, Singapore
The day after I turned 34 years old, I feel renewed. I can't stop smiling. Everytime I pass a mirror or catch a reflection of myself, I marvel at my beauty, especially my happy eyes. I feel like some cloud has been lifted or maybe I've finally jumped over some post-month two traveler's hurdle. I feel like I'm ready to flow with my life on the traveller's trail which means I have to drop all of my stupid expectations. It is funny that I usually have better experiences when I have no expectations of what my experiences should be.
Today, I'm in no expectation land but the locals call it Malaysia. I never had any serious traveling plans for Malaysia. However, I'm now heeding my inner voice which is telling me to go to paradise and the mountains, so bye bye Kuala Lumpur.
I want to thank everyone who sent me a birthday wish in writing or in spirit. My birthday rocked! I'm going to do a post about it soon with lots of photos! I'm so feelin' Singapore!
