Third time’s a charm? I only say so because I failed to achieve my goal of taking higher quality photos on my first 2 visits to Korea. Now I guess I finally got it right on the 3rd time!
It seems just like last year when we first stepped foot in Korea . Yet here we are now, we’ve just gotten back from our third music ministry tour in the land which we can now somehow call home.
We finally made it back to where we started our journey 2 weeks prior–Singapore.
Traveled a little over 4hrs from Butterworth, and arrived in Kuala Lumpur at past 3am, for a day stopover only.
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.
After breakfast, a van picked us up from the hotel and fetched others on the way. We later on transferred to a bus at that station near Pub Street.
Our early morning JetStar flight to Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) was very exciting. As the airport slowly came alive, the queues started to build up, we wondered why our flight schedule still wasn’t flashed on the screens. We asked some airport people but they only told us to wait…over and over again. Next thing we knew, our flight was already boarding! We almost missed our flight! But thank God for some people who helped us and let us cut through the line. And boy was the run from check-in to the gate, long! Haha
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.
