Malaysia In My Kismet

Hinduism believes in the concept of Karma (action, fate or deed) & also Kismet (destiny or fate).

Needless to say, we need to have a good past & present Karma & a great connection with Kismet!

There is even a Bollywood movie named 'Kismat Konnection' that stresses on Kismet to unite the hero & heroine!

From the past few days I am wondering about my luck. I am a very optimistic person. But, still I can't help but think so as despite my best efforts over the past so many years, I have just managed to win one International Trip Contest so far.

My thoughts raced to the hundreds of contests I had eagerly taken part in, the majority being for South Asia trips, especially for Malaysia...

To earn my trip to Malaysia, I have done some sane & crazy things in my waking hours & by burning the midnight oil! You can find a list of my activities at the end of my post- My 5 Malaysia Experiences.

I now remember having purchased lots of packs of that popular breakfast-cereal and then sending all the codes by SMS hoping at least one code would be the winning one for the grand Malaysian Trip dream!

But, the truth is I never won any of those contests I had taken part starry-eyed!

That Malaysia Trip prize was not in my stars, rather was there in the winner's stars!

The answer came as Karma or Kismet. Those who are destined to win will win...

The recent tragedy about the #MH370 may also be ascribed to the Karma & Kismet theory.
There are some things out of our control.... Feels terrible that all our prayers & hope for #MH370 went futile... 

These are the 5 Things I Wanna Do In Malaysia:
  1. Go Places- Lots of destinations in Malaysia! Check out Tourism Malaysia!
  2. Gather Experiences & Memories- Eat, Pray, Love & soak in all the fun, thrill, romance & adventure!
  3. Take part in Events- Many happening events for me to let me hair down & join in!
  4. Celebrate Festivals- Being a Kaleidoscope of cultures, Malaysia has so many festivals...
  5. Fulfill Dreams- I have dreamt it for so long & it is high time now!

Seeing my enthusiasm, my hubby volunteered to take me to Malaysia!

"There are great travel deals online in this cool new website. I have the coupons & I can shop for a great Malaysia package & what's more get cashback in the bargain!"



Hubby was trying to entice me as he knows I love a good deal & a great bargain!
Come on, everyone loves good deals & also coupons, cashback & bargain!!!

As I am made of CONTEST JUNKIE material, I have requested him to hold on to his offer...

I still believe that there is a maiden Malaysia Trip win in my Kismet shortly!
I can find KUALA LUMPUR CALLING! as there's Malaysia On My Mind!


Meanwhile, we can indulge in some online shopping & get our bags ready for the future trips!

At least there are some things like Shopping in our Kismet....

    1. Thanks Beloo for your wonderful wishes.

      'Om Shaanti Om' Movie dialog-
      "Itni shiddat se paane ki koshish kee hai, jaise zarre zarre ne mujhe milaane ki saazish kee hai....Saari Qayanaat usey milaani ki koshish mein lag jaati hai! "
      Translation-
      I have tried very hard to attain this, everything has conspired to make me achieve it... Entire Universe has tried/conspired to make me meet (my goal)

  14. Loved your 2-in-1 concept for this post... this anyway, is the craze right now. Even NDTV has NDTV Profit during Market hours and then they switch to NDTV Prime. Btw, talking to NDTV Prime, do remember to watch me on Thursdays at 8:30 PM in the NDTV-VOLVO XC 60 Adventure Challenge... 13 episodes and I managed to reach the finale without getting eliminated!
