  2. Congrats on having posted 1400 photographs. No mean feat. Your photographic passion is very much in evidence in the way you present your photos. One of the best blogs I've seen. Provides detailed info on directions as well. A thoroughly readable and enjoyable blog.

  4. Yeah.. once you got back from travel, you would want to return to travel again.

    I miss Laos so much also. Is your travel blogger dream coming true soon? I read a lot of blogs from full time travel bloggers and they really made it by earning their travel expenses via their blogs while traveling full time.

  6. @Roger,

    Whoa! Your words of encouragement are AWESOME! Thank you Roger for your comments and support.

    My photo blog & travelogue is just another typical blog around the corner :) Will try to make it even better!

    @Shelyn,

    Exactly, Shelyn. KL is like nothing to me. It's a boring metropolitan. Beside, the late nite partying, I don't find any refreshing stuff.

    My dream??? I HOPE TO BECOME a travel or nature photographer with a renown magazine or company...perhaps National Geographic or CNN or BBC :) I'm just a 'small fry' when it comes to traveling. Not even an amateur traveler yet. Sight....

    It's HOLIDAY TIME AGAIN!! I need to get out of my lousy house!!!

    Cheers!

  8. Photographer with renown company, so ambitious! I'm just looking towards the day when I can just travel and blog with constant income generated from my blog to survive.

    Good luck dude, wish your dreams come true!

     
  9. @Shelyn,

    Well, there is a saying by Martin Luther King "I Have A Dream".

    Blogging, travel + constant income? That's a bit difficult in Malaysia. One thing for sure - You are an excellent writer!

    Cheers!

Traveling & photography are the most rewarding & enriching experiences in my life. Photography is all about discovery, enjoying myself, having adventure, learning people & nature. The greatest experience for me is the connection I felt with NATURE. If you haven’t seen Malaysia, you haven’t seen the world!
