My KL Travel Experience: The Hotel

Hello! Finally have time to blog about my KL travel experience. It was a work related trip to attend the Poultry Feed Quality Conference. I was one of the chosen to attend the Poultry Feed Quality Conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Actually, I have a heavy heart living for this trip since I will travel alone and I'll be away from Matt for like 4 days. Although I have colleagues also going, I wished I have Daddy A and Matt with me. Also the negative thoughts of plane crashing the past weeks kept me worrying a lot about this trip and to think I am going to Malaysia pa. Adding to my stress was that I have a different sponsor and flight schedule from the rest of my colleagues. I was hiding that fear from Daddy and at the last minute I wanted to tell him, I will not go because I worry about what will happen once I reached the airport and how will I get to the hotel and so on. I remember my Bangkok, Thailand trip, in which I have traveled alone. 

But God is so good that before deplaning I met my co attendees from the same sponsor and the rest of the scenes went smoothly. Except that I was so sleepy because I chose not to sleep before the flight for fear of missing my flight at 6:40am. We left our house at 2 in the morning while Matt was still sleeping.

Just like what I have said, everything just fell into its place when I met the other attendees. They are so nice people and I easily get along with. So without further ado, let me start my KL travel experience.

Welcome to Le Meridien Hotel! Here's their beautiful reception area.

GET CLOSER! That's it!

Do you yell a lot at home? Well, sometimes I do especially if Matt is unstoppable and won't listen. It happens also when I am so stressed and exhausted. Who would want to yell all the time by the way? It's energy consuming and it's shameful that your neighbors is hearing your loud voice all the time. I really don't mind what others say or think about us but I have a growing son. It's not okay that he's getting used to loud voice, yelling, nagging and the likes.

Generally, I have a loving, caring boy. Sure he listens to us but like what I have said, there are times he's so stubborn and unstoppable. I think he's practicing his independence so I must understand that. Since I am just human who's temper is unmanageable sometimes, I cannot stop myself from yelling and nagging. Everything and everyone gets affected whenever my emotion is out of control. Peacefulness at home is temporarily gone during those times, until I manage to compose myself.

Like what I have said, my son is growing. Yelling is not a good example. Apart from that, he can understand most of the words and he knows what mad or angry is. As mush as I could, I try to hold my temper. I usually count before I warn him. I will warn him several times until finally, I explode. That's the time he will stop. It's lucky if he will really stop because sometimes, he will just wait until I cool down and he will continue with his business again. See after I consume my energy yelling, it doesn't make any good. 

So what can I do other than yelling? When I read this 1 Simple Tip to Stop Yelling, I remember one thing I have done already other than yelling. Get closer! How can I ever forget it? I have done this already and it works. Because I am busy with many things, I failed to communicate with and get closer to my son. That maybe the reasons why Matt is acting that way. He needs attention.

I just need to get closer to him. When I am closer to him, I don't need to yell right? I can also see what is up to. I can tell him what he shouldn't be doing. I can listen closely to his needs. That's it! Aside from getting closer, it helps that instead of uttering unkind words, I tell him how much I love him and how good he is. He will suddenly turn into a tamed sheep. Hehe...

Now, why do I need to waste my energy and disturb the peacefulness at home? When all I need is to GET CLOSER.

I hope this helps and I also want to hear tips from you on how to stop yelling. Sharing is love right?

Enjoy your weekend!

Monday Inspiration: Do Not Get Upset

Let this be a reminder to us...

"Do not get upset with people or situations, both are powerless without your reaction." ~Unknown~

Also remember, that anything or anyone who makes us angry can control us. Don't give them a chance to have a power over us, and don't react fast. Keep calm and good vibes only!

Have a great week ahead everyone!
