I have lent money to the people for genuine reasons. At first, they seem innocent and reasonable in their sayings. They act kindly and promise to repay in few day but as soon as time crosses the limit, and when I call to remind them, they seem unavailable on phone calls and by chance when I manage to find them and ask for it, they give other reason and ask to understand their problems. I wonder who would understand the problem. Well, I have no choice but to believe them and wait for the next deadline to end.

Understanding the world through travel

November 18, 2017 10:09 am

I have always been inspired by travel articles, wanderlust journeys and travel magazines. Besides that, I’m kind of a character who is enthusiastic to study about brand new culture and their population. Since I’m an easy going and the youngest member, my family constantly supports me in my decision. Therefore last year on October 29, 2016, I planned to go Singapore, the Lion City of Asia for vacation. It was my first experience to travel any international country so somewhere I was nervous but more than that I was passionate and eager to visit Singapore.  I travelled alone to Singapore and I had transit in Malaysia and there I stayed with my cousin sister and her family in Gurkha Contingent Camp.
