Travel dream

Whinings

Sometimes I always wonder what it feels to travel the world without having anything to worry. Just riding the bike all over the place, experience new cultures and meet new people.

In the past few years, I’ve not travel much due to work commitment. In fact I have not travel much my whole life. During my studies back in the UK, I didn’t travel as much as what normally typical Malaysian students would do. I didn’t back pack across Europe nor took the Eurostar across to Paris. The furthest I’ve gone was to go to Lake Windermere for a competition, fully paid by EDS.

It is my dream to travel the world. Hopefully in my lifetime I would be able to do that. Just jump into my bike and zoom across the continent without any worry of what I have left behind. Obviously I would come back as family commitments are much more important than anything else to me.

Well, now it comes to my retirement plan. I hope to retire early. Perhaps before 50. I can’t believe that I am even considering this, I guess age is catching up and I started realizing that I have not done a lot of stuffs in the past 37 years or so. But all is not lost, we’ve all done a lot in the past and we will do much more in the future. Crying of spoilt milk is a waste of time. We just need to plan for the future and continue to dream and perseveres so that we can achieve our dream.

Enough of whining… Time to move on and plan my next step…

Big Mac index???

Fun Posts, I Love Malaysia

Big Mac Index is one of those age old modern gauge to describe how world affordability is divided.

Obviously as an index, the reference is set on a particular country. With the one published on economist, it has been set to be reference against United States. So where do Malaysia sit in the whole scheme of things?

Not bad I must say. We are very much cheaper than a lot of places in ASEAN. In fact, in the world we are considered damn cheap. Though honestly, looking at the Mcdonald’s prices in Malaysia – I must say the price is kind of expensive!
