    Awww, shucks, you’re sweet for not banning me. But I thought you were changing the name of this thing? Something more catchy, like: Unbrave Girl’s Wrote Something! (and some other people did too). Thanks, as always, for mentioning me! It’s always an honor to be featured with such great bloggers.

    1. Oooooooooooh, get you with your fancy new website design. Unbrave Girl’s Wrote Something is indeed a catchy title but on reflection (of the distance between Malaysia and here) I’ve decided to keep the current name. This situation may be reviewed if I find myself closer to the Malaysian countryside.

    Thanks for mentioning my “Why am I considered selfish for traveling the world” article!!!!

    1. No worries. I don’t think we have to deal with the same sort of pressure to conform in the UK. The American dream seems to be the American curse for those that don’t see their lives panning out a certain way.
