How did it start?! (Malaysia trip)


It’s not so easy to remember how was my trip to Malaysia. I committed the mistake of postponing writing about it for around a month now. However I cannot let it go!!!

Malaysia has been always always on my mind! Although very far from my home country, it’s considered the most civilized Muslim country in the world now (in 2014). And I am Muslim from Egypt. I love my religion however it’s not applied in my country. Most people here don’t have ethics. Islam talks a lot about ethics and strangely you can find it only in books in Egypt! Islam encourages you to read, learn, innovate, create, work hard, invent… etc. However in Egypt people don’t care much about these things!

I thought maybe I should go to another Muslim country so as not to lose faith in my religion and lose myself. And again Malaysia was my choice because it’s a rapidly developing Muslim country!

The decision was not that easy as I’ll have to spend lots of money and that might result in problems with my family (especially my father) who always reminds me of the importance of saving money and prioritizing! However I decided to face all that for Malaysia! 🙂

And it was…

I contacted Walid, my companion in the trip, and arranged everything for the trip to start on the 13th of June 2014. We agreed that we will visit Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi, Penang and Melacca. And go back home on the 25th of June 2014.
