Who are these people? Why do they deserve such recognitions? What did they do? Why are they on the front cover of magazines? Why are they put under the scrutinizing microscopic lens of everyone? Are they any different than who we are? Are they really like what you read in magazines and hear on gossip news? Are they what you heard? Are they so god-like? Such bitches? Goody-goody two shoes as people say they are? Will you believe whatever being said? And be judgmental and cynical over them? Or do you choose to judge with your own eyes? And know them as how you know everyone else? Giving them a fair chance.
I have my own fair share of popular friends, or celebrities you might say. I can tell you that they are very much different from what you think they are or what you've heard. Get to know them. Get to know their stories. Only then you have the chance to judge and to comment. Don't be cynical nor give them a special treatment just cause they are popular. Do not judge people from their looks, makeups or gossips. There is always a story behind everything. Be open and give everyone a fair chance as an individual and you will realize many many different things coming from them.

a heart of a traveller.
i wish to see the wonders of God not only through the lens of other people's camera but through the God given lens of mine.
i wish to be able to meet people from all over the world, speaking their languages, learning their cultures.
i wish to experience and to be mesmorized by the magnificent mothernature.
i wish to be able to fatten up my passport with visas from all over the world.
i wish to be able to taste and savor all the wonderful delicacies from all around.
i wish to be able to learn more about the history of our forefathers.
i wish to be able to snap many wonderful, perfectly still photographs of my adventures to show my grandchildren when i sit quietly on my rocking chair.
i hope to be able to swim and witness the colourful fishes and to uncover the mysteries of the sea.
i wish to return back to the place of my forefathers and to walk the ground of many strong warriors who died in honor.
i wish to have my very own story that can be carried along with me for the rest of my life as i leave behind my footsteps in those countries that i have visited.
i wish to experience the wonder of the four seasons and to have at least celebrated Christmas once under the beauty of snow.
i wish to be able to impact places that need help and love.
i hope to not live in regrets and am able to cross out atleast half the countries that i wish to step foot on in my lifetime.
France, England, America, Brazil, China, India, Australia, Austria, New Zealand, Canada, Africa and the list goes on.
i have a heart of a traveller, my bag is packed, and my camera is fully charged. the world is my playground, a place for me to learn and to experience. why hold back and follow to the normal ways of life? work? bills? liability? stand up and start moving. live a life full with colours and not with regrets. backpacking anyone?
