There were actually several site proposed for my journey this time !

You may shock to know after reading it, be honest, the destination for my journey which was first on my mind was Palau! 

I still remember it was the early September when I made a phone-call to my travel agent H.I.S for the first time in 3 months ! (after I traveled South Korea during Jun 11- Jun 16) 
I asked my person in charge of HIS on how Palau sounds like for my expecting journey..

However her answer was there's only 1 hotel available...
Furthermore, the Hotel's fee far exceeded my budget...What made me totally upset was the flight schedule (departing Narita Tokyo nearly 12 midnight & returning back there at around 5 in the morning in our time)...that did make no sense to me. 

In fact, it sounded to me really tight, what was worse, the estimate being sent to my email account from my travel agent was too expensive to carry on. 

Hence I had to change the destination despite the landscape of Palau sounded to me such tremendously beautiful & has caught my eyes an awful lot !! 
After having dreamed of staying in Palau during my holidays was up in the air, my next proposed sight was Vietnam..
According to my travel guide book 海外旅行の最新情報 地球の歩き方 , Vietnam has a lot ! 

There are actually so many beautiful places that draws me as well, and many spots are designated as the world heritage nationwide, indeed. 

Yet my decision was somehow wavering, and it went on & on & on..
After wading through a lot of info about this country, I concluded not to visit this time, either !

Still, I was sticking to beach resort such as Ko Samui in Thailand or wherever, and Langkawi was also count in..

Nevertheless, my second thought turned my eyes more onto familiar place than unfamiliar one, and to me, it was nothing but Kuala Lumpur !

The first time I visited there was on Jun 20 in 2001, when I was 36 year old..
I was tougher than present, also was rough and tumble ! 
Nowadays I take precedence over safety than adventure as I turned 48 year old.. 

 So when I've found Kuala Lumpur International Airport was really huge for the first time on last Monday the 12th, I felt a little bit disoriented !!

What I've found is, believe it not, this kind of ambiguity always makes my journey more bountiful and fruitful as always be ^^

And what made me feel more inclined to visit there at this time is..
Well, it goes without saying that I really wanted to see Facebook sisters face to face, yes, that's true ^^

Above all, what made my journey most comfortable and pleasant was nothing but their tenderness, caring, truthfulness, thoughtfulness..everything was exactly the same as I've imagined before we met each other!! 

And they decorated my 48th Birthday so amazingly !

If it were not for their great assistance, I'm sure I wouldn't have accomplished my journey in such safely & comfortably ! 
Yes, that's true !

Finally we ended up in Malacca where I really wanted to visit ever since I have watched the footage of it on TV, which was as far back as July 2 in 2010..^^

Also I could safely travel Taipei before going back to Tokyo ^^

Taipei was also amazing !
The thing is the traffic jam as well as I was really caught in KL, which was on my way to Chinatown..

As a matter of course, everything is
forgivable as long as I could safely return back to Tokyo !!

As a token of my gratitude for your welcoming when I was there, I really wanted to update here on my blogger ASAP..It took me nearly a week though anyway, I've finished it all ^^ 

Thank you, Terima Kasih Banyak & ありがとう ^^
