About me

Hello. My name is Karen. And this is my blog.

If you ended up here I am guessing that’s because you find my blog entries interesting enough to want to know more about me.

I grew up in a small town call Batu Pahat, in the State of Johor, in a country call Malaysia.

I am very optimistic and trusting by nature. Fortunately for me, I’ve always been able to see the good in others and a silver lining at the end of the tunnel (most of the time really). To the extend that some might think that I am naïve. Such sweeping statement used to get on my nerves. But I have come to terms that I could not change myself for the sake of others. After all, I am the luckiest girl in the world and there is absolutely nothing that I would change to please others.

I am a believer that event of our lives were pre-planed at the soul level in this physical world. And that the world is a playground for us to play and explore for the development of our soul. This has given me the ability to look at people, events from different perspective and gave me the ability to understand that things are sometimes not what it seems on surface level.

I rarely have regrets in my life. That doesn’t mean that my life is a bed of roses. But I’ve come to accept that it is the imperfection in life that perfected my journey in this lifetime. Truth is, I am ever grateful just by being able to wake up every morning in a healthy body with all my senses intact. People have regrets because they have not lived enough for themselves and others. I’ve come to a realization that as long as we do our best, we will have no regrets. That is a principle that I live by everyday.

I love to write, simply because I communicate better in writing. I am never a talker. And I find social gathering without purpose and talking for the sake of talking is a waste of time and energy. I am an introvert, and I am most alive, creative, most switched and most capable when I am in a quieter environment.

On April 2013, I will be embarking on a journey that I’ve dreamt about for 5 years. Finally, I have mustered enough courage to leave my comfortable lifestyle to travel for a good 6-12 months. Yes, it does take a hell lot of courage for a single Asian girl to leave everything behind and put forth her life on a backpack. But I’ve got to follow my heart and do what’s best for my soul.
