So a new opportunity knocked on the door and this couldn’t have come at a better time. My trip from Singapore to Chiang Mai was cancelled since the airline company (AirAsia) is no longer operating routes between these two cities. I simply had to email them to get a refund for the money spent; quite a convenient way to handle disputes if I might say so.
So where am I? I’m currently in Dungun, Malaysia, and I’ll be here for awhile. The backpacking trip hasn’t really been cut short but I have a reason to stay longer than my supposed plans.
This is also my first time to go to this side of the country and I’m liking the place just because I’m right beside the beach!
Instead of sitting in front of a desk, my feet are going to be busy for some time. I hope to relearn things and apply what I’ll learn in the future.
taking a break
I may even be able to go on a trekking adventure or dive; when there’s more time available. I’m just glad of this opportunity and I can’t thank my friend for passing the message to me.

di ko pa naririnig yung lugar na yan, but looks good!
Wow, memories. Haha. We used to live in Paka, small town before Dungun. Province much, lol. Di kagandahan ang beach dun e, pero mukhang ok diyan. Are you crossing the border to Southern Thailand by bus? Di ba delikado?
congrats! i've learned that digital nomad gigs tend to come when we least expect it.
Selamat Datang ke Malaysia! first time I've heard this place, me miss beach, makapag impake na nga. 🙂

Hindi ka natatakot mag-trip alone?
