"A mum of 2 kids, who crazy about travelling" divecat1978's Profile

Travel - My first hobby to explore the world

I was totally banned by my dad to travel with friends when I was young. I always travel with my parents to their hometown, Penang during school holidays.
However, when my class of 96 organised a trip to Pulau Kapas, Terengganu. I statred to love travelling. I earned some money from helping my mum with sewing, teaching young student and part time jobs. Thereafter, I went to Redang island every 2 years.
When I started to work, I joined my colleague for the company trip to Australia. The trip was exciting and memorable. The eager to travel further to other countries grew stronger.
Somehow, I took up an Open Water course. I love scuba diving and wanted more to see the underwater world of my country. I went to Tioman island, Tenggol island, Redang island and Perhentian island ( all these islands are in West Malaysia ). When I further proceed with Advance Water course, I went to Sipadan island and Mabul island, the most popular dive site in Asia.
Now, on and off, I will pack my dive gear to dive when there is time.

Travel - time to break away from office and home

I like travelling since young though my parents used to keep us at home during my childhood. I like to backpack, with some money and travel alone to some nice travel spot. After marriage, I had 2 kids, a son and a daughter. They are the one who keep me stay at home, play with them and accompany to sleep. Yet, when there are times, I bring them along to travel with me. They are young but I want them to see the other side of the world. Office - loads of work, stress and tired. So, travel is another option to get stressless time.

It's been a while after travelling. I will be going to break away this time. Hubby had happily departed this world. Gonna miss him when festive season comes these years.

Well, I recently enjoyed a trip with my colleagues. We went to this place, Broga. It has beautiful mountain and an extreme camp for activities. I tried caving this time and it was really exciting. Though with my feet injury, I still managed to finish the course. Yahoo.
