What Is Your Life's Detour?

My work experience in the Middle East was a test of endurance, likewise, I would say, it’s survival to the fittest. During summer, you felt like being roasted due to extreme heat that even spending outside for 5-10 minutes was intensely impossible or you would suffer from a head stroke, oh by the way, you need to stay hydrated most of the time too. Now, you think it might be an exaggeration, but we never stroll around Doha during summer time thus we needed to wait for winter before we could walk around Aspire ParkOur jogging session, brisk walking outdoor were also seasonal.

  • Seychelles with a Tagline as Paradise on Earth!

So for the first two years, mama mia I was like, I need to go out. It’s too hot and I am roasting. Lo and behold, God heard my prayers when my ex-boyfriend (now my hubby) invited me for 14 days holidays in his country. You can’t imagine the excitement I felt when I went to Seychelles for the first time since I set foot in an Arabian Peninsula. I was like a kid given sweets during Trick and Treats that I can't help feeling so elated. Oh I remembered that moment when my plane touched  down Seychelles International Airport on a rainy December. You want to know why? haha for a very obvious reason that at last I can see mountains, beaches and greeneries, most of all, I experienced RAIN! oh jeez even our students were so ignorant what rain looked and felt like and we have to let them experience drizzling even for a moment.

Take a look at some of the amazing beaches Seychelles could offer to the world. Actually they consider this country, "Paradise on Earth!" and I was really amazed.

  • Taking my Life's Detour

Contrary to the reality from the Middle East,  you could visualise an opposite pole alike from North to South, or like day and night, hot and cold, sunny and rainy? I could go on and on lol! Coming from a desert it’s time to venture out a beach. I grew up and worked all my life in a metropolitan, went overseas to an extreme heat, and had a two weeks staycation in an island life. I am so used to the hustle and the busy life in the city wherein staying in Mahe was a total DETOUR, a total shift from gear one to four! You bet how the clean and green in the country is just so amazing that on a weekend we have to bring our baby for a road trip. The idea of being able to emerge myself in an island kind  of living is indeed my life's treasure.

How Much Time Have You Wasted?
How Much Time Have You Wasted?

Time is our valuable asset! It is certain that once we have waited for tomorrow of what we can do for today, we have wasted already a lot of opportunities. "Time is money" according to Benjamin Franklin which he referred to the output cost which means that we have let the opportunity to pass because we preferred to delay things. Given our life's realities, I have seen many people even during the pandemic who have wasted their time. I just can't imagine how they preferred to laze around online.
