Travel Writing

Thank God for the long weekend. Because of the long CNY weekend, I have the time and opportunity to set aside my projects for a while and think of what I wanna do in future. For the longest time, I have come to terms with that fact that I am someone who is passion-driven. Among some of my dream jobs include becoming an entrepreneur, journalist, writer, PR consultant and even working in my Church. After discovering my love and ‘talent’ (*coughs*) for writing, I feel that one day, I might wanna just try out travel writing as a career even if it is just for a brief period, before settling for a 9 to 5 desk job.

How nice it would be to take a sip of hot piping coffee in the early morning by the cafe in the streets of Rome, watch a Liverpool match live in the Anfield Stadium in Liverpool England, walk the historic Great Wall of China, drag myself on camelback across the unforgiving Sahara Desert in North Africa, cool down and cover myself with mud from the Dead Sea in Israel, exploring the alleyways in Thailand, visit the famed 台湾夜市 (Taiwan night market), drink the traditional soju into the night of Seoul Korea and finally fall asleep while witnessing the Northern lights (Auroras) in Alaska. How nice it would be to experience the rich culture each country has to offer! There is so much to see, so much to do, so much to experience out there in the great unknown.

How nice it would be to capture the magnificence the world has to offer on camera and penning down these encounters on paper.


But, like what the elders always say, can your passion huan kou fan zi (means can it generate sufficient income to make a living in Chinese)? What if your passion runs out or dies down (which it eventually will)? Haha. As such, I feel that having passion is one thing but it is also important to put perseverance and stake into your passion, even when it dies down. A man who only runs by passion is a man who will never accomplish much.

What is your ambition and passion? 🙂
