A Week Without The World Wide Web

I felt lost..and empty...I missed this space horribly! Shows how much addicted I am to the Cybersphere.

I was up north in Penang for 1 whole week, attending a Nation Building Camp (BTN), a compulsory course for government scholarship holders pursuing their studies overseas next year. I'm going to Perth, Australia next July for my Masters, and was told to attend this course.

The camp is in Balik Pulau, Penang. I actually drove alone for 5 hours to reach the camp! It was a last minute change of plan as hubby had to attend an urgent meeting. I was a bit nervous about travelling alone, I chanted "I'm a smart woman, I can do this" the whole journey lol

It was overall enjoyable. I learned to adapt. It was a packed course and the place do not have mobile phone coverage let alone Internet connection. My heart yearned for my babies all the time. I managed to take a few shots (from my hand phone's camera) of the beautiful beach and hill side jungle during our hiking/jungle trekking exercise.

Breathtaking views.....Malaysia is indeed a beautiful country, and I'm so proud to be Malaysian! I love this country so much...

Now, so happy to be home, can't wait for the weekend to start sewing again. Cheers!
