“A divorce no more crushed my heart, in fact I'm glad it happened and I met my new sayang who is lifting up my spirit. I swim, bike, run because she says so. I trained like a mad man being whipped from behind. I compete because I always want to beat my sayang in the race. I have heroes and one of them is my sayang. I'm an athlete, but like nobody else.”... try to be funny ehhh???
Weekend jaunt to Adelaide
Fiza got a day off in Adelaide at the end of July. Since we never utilize free ticket for family members, I decided to join her.
First time I fly in A333 with her onboard
The flight was at night and took about 7 hours. We touched down in the morning. After check-in, Fiza was trying to get some sleep. After midday, she woke up and we explored the city center near the malls' area.
Around Adelaide till nite
The following day, we explored the other side of the city. The weather was nice and the sun shines all day long. We went to the museum, gallery & botanical garden.
The next day
Near the end of the day, we decided to go to Glenelg Beach about 40 mins by tram to catch the sunset. We were lucky, we were on time when we arrived at the beach. The wind was so strong and it was very cold. Before heading home we had a tasty fish and chips at a stall near the beach.
Although it was a short trip, we were blessed to be able to spend time together despite her busy roster. It was like a honeymoon trip. Hope for many more trips to come in the near future.
I have been dreaming of going for a honeymoon in Bali since the day I got married... I mean since my first marriage in 1999. But I never had a chance to go until the second marriage, although it was 16 months after the actual ceremony...hehe.
It was an impromptu action, Fiza decided to go and I just follow her along. She said, let it be a birthday treat for me. The place so beautiful, we had so much fun together there and we fell in love with each other all over again.
People said Nusa Penida is like Bali before it was commercialized. Not many tourists coming here, and to get to the tourist spots you have to ride a motorbike or car very far on the treacherous long winding bumpy road. If you never ride a motorcycle, it is not advisable to ride one here, better hire a driver. You also need to be physically fit to explore these places which involved hiking through dangerous steep slopes and stairs. But the view was breathtaking and you forgot all the struggles once you reached the spots…
