It was a very tedious ride from Bangkok to Butterworth, Penang. We were on that train for literally, 23 hours! But what was worse was that we went 40 hours without a shower! Gross, I know. Let me narrate it to you.
About a year before my parents’ silver wedding anniversary in October of 2014, we were thinking of ways to celebrate. Should we have a banquet with dear family and friends? Or should we just travel instead? Until we finally agreed on the latter. We figured, the budget we would set aside for a banquet would do much more if we traveled. But credits to me as I was the one who insisted on traveling. And since I was the mastermind, I also had the upper hand in choosing the destination. But much of the pressure was on me as I should do much of the research, and plan out the whole itinerary.
