Just Pull the Trigger

This past week was so long.  Go to work at 7 or 7:30, and one day 5:30AM, and then leave at 8:30 or 9:30PM.  I come home and go to sleep after an hour or so.  Too much.  I should have two weeks off starting next weekend though.

I am thinking about a trip in March.  I noticed that flights out of Toronto to Asia are pretty inexpensive.  Roundtrip to Singapore with return from KL is around $1000.  It's a three hour bus ride from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur.  I could even get a Cathay Pacific flight for $1150.

So what the hell?  I should do this.  A week long adventure in a place I've always wanted to go.  Malaysia is home country of an ex-bf.   I should just book it and lock in these dates.  A few days in Singapore and a few days in KL.

A female friend of mine just went to Singapore and Malaysia last month.  She has family in Malaysia.  She said Singapore was nearly perfect and she would even live in their public housing.  She wasn't so impressed with KL because of traffic, crime and construction.  I'm sure lots of US cities are just as bad for those things.

Ok....need to make decision in next few days. 


  1. Oh! If you come to Malaysia, please do tell me. I'd love to meet up with you.

    Indeed, Singapore is so well-ordered and convenient. Not much of complain can be made living there. It's a fast-paced living country. And everything has to be fast.

    Wheres for Malaysia, most expatriates would rather come to Malaysia for retirement. Partly because it's so much more cheaper; Mostly because they love the country for some unknown reason.

    If you come to M'sia, we should hang out someday! :)

    1. Zach, thanks for your offer of hospitality. If I come to Malaysia I will definitely meet you.

  2. You make no mention of reasons not to go. Pull the trigger already! You work hard - reward yourself.
