After exposing my excursion to a selective set, here are some of the reactions received:
- You’re going there to see your boyfriend, aren’t you?
- Why there of all places?
- You can contract H1N1.
- Have you lost it? You're going alone!
- They kill Muslims there.
- That place is filled with pickpockets.
- How are you going to pray? What will you eat?
Perhaps I am a vocally determined person because I happen to have answers for all of the above. Or I am just too pigheaded to make room for other forms of reasoning. I will go with pigheadedness.
I guess the reaction that sort of stumped me is …
"Why there of all places?"
There’s a stronger pull there compared to anywhere else and I don’t know why. I really have no clue. I just know when I returned from Hajj, I got on the net aimlessly thinking about starting a blog and I came across Guangzhou. In actual truth, I forget things easily. Yet, I wasn’t able to shake it off my head. I deduced, something must be there.

I’m finding out.
