Sinai-Dahab-Sharm Sheikh travelogue part 1

I just posted one of 600 ++ photos available of my vacation recently on instagram and the memories struck like really I felt like going to that moment back, again.

I’m glad that I’ve decided to join the trip this time, at the right moment and right people to be crazy with. It was almost 12 hours travel by bus but the place is so beautiful. I wish I have Polaroid with me. We went by bus at 2am and managed to reach St. Catherine and check in to the hotel at 3pm that day. We did a little warm up at Wadi Arbain where the rock that had been knocked by Moses which happened to produce 12 source of water still there.

Also I forgot to mention we visited the Bar Liev fort that belong to Israelite army but Egyptians Army manage to confiscate that fort in 6 days.

1 in the morning we went climbing and I have no words on that experience. Tiring but it’s worth it. Here’re my few tips:

1.       Good companies keep you motivated.
2.       Bring snickers, mars or energy bars.
3.       Limit your water consumption because the loo there is not the best.
4.       A good pair of shoes helps.

And the last place which is the top of the mountain is so amazing with the sun rise on point. I love that moment so much. I wish I have a better word for that moment but naah. I wish who read this will have an opportunity to visit there someday!

the place was somehow like a village and as i googled, it says that this is the place where prophet Elijah hide from Jezabel.

Way back from climbing the mountain, we managed to visit a few tomb of prophets, historical places before heading back and packing for Dahab.
it's a fake smile. i'm dying inside lol.

the tomb

I guess I’m gonna need part 2 for Dahab. Untill here,

on TFIOS by John Green.

I just read the fault in our stars by John Green. Yes, I know I’m awfully late but watched the movie already. I know how to expect but the movie did move me in a way of watching a movie can that is why I liked to read. Reading gives you something more that you can grasp through it.
I don’t intend to write anything like a review or maybe it is but here the thing;

That book makes think lots of stuff. About death, dying, loosing someone you love. Something that at last all human will have a taste of it. Although that book portrays all of those in a different perspective than mine but I think the feeling (maybe not all) is mutual.

The uncertainty of all of that somehow so scary and caused anxiety but all I can say is, those feeling demand to be felt like John Green said pain is demanded to be felt and by that we can moves on.

Two days ago, my dad was admitted to HDU in Kedah Medical Center, due to problems in his lungs and that affected his heart. Alhamdulillah he’s okay now. The thing is, first; that is quite serious and I tell you, I cry a bit scared of anything that might happen. Secondly, I guess even thought I am aware of the fact that I’ve left my family few hundred miles  and might lose them in any time without able to be at their side but I’m still not ready for all of those probabilities. I am not and I don’t think anyone ever be ready.

Back to the book, I like the way the author convey the story. It is quite cliché in a way it is but still it is a good book for anyone who want to try young adult novels.

I guess this is it. Bye .

January notes?

So here we go. 

I just told myself that after brushing my tooth, while shutting down my laptop I want to sleep. End of story but now I’m sitting in my bed typing this. So as my goal this year to at least update this blog regularly; keeping that goal realistic is what I am trying right now. Even though I don’t really share my blog to people and that’s no point on doing that as my writing is shit.  Tomorrow most of my friends are going to Mount Sinai and Dahab which quite a nice place but I cancelled it last minute just merely because I don’t feel like going. Well, I still got time, 2 years ahead is quite plenty and may Allah will.

So, how is my winter break?


I went to Islamic Art museum which is quite funny to me going to a museum like we had a clue but discovering new things is awesome. Then we go to climb Bab Zuweyla tower, and it’s quite scary. Apparently I am an acrophobia person (scared of heights) but the scenery is worth paying 10 pounds. The whole days is very tiring but spend well.

International book fair has started but I didn’t go on the first few days as I voluntarily joined myself a 4 days program called WISE which I am glad I did. I must admit that at first I am quite lazy to fill up the online registration and answering questions but I managed to be chosen to be part of the 200 pounds program which I am grateful and happy I did joined.  I benefited so much on the whole 4 days and having the chance to meet such amazing person who clarify lots of uncertainty and blurred answer in my mind really making me full and literally, wise.

So, here I am again planning over tomorrow. Actually I got things to do but we’ll so hoe it goes. I didn’t regret not going there because my best friend is not going too so Book fair, here we go! Although I don’t have a full final list on what books I want to get maybe just wandering around there is better than hibernating huh?

Okay, I guess last but not least I just started reading the fault in our stars by John Green and yup, I know I’m late and I’ve seen the movies and reading it is quite easier. I haven’t read anything serious since last month. Exam demand a lots of my time on notes and tutorials. I guess that is all with half of my winter break and with this, I end my writing.
