Balik Kampung checklist

This week is the last week of Ramadan. By Sunday, Muslims all over the world will celebrate Eid. Right here in Malaysia most of us will 'balik kampung" or travelling back to our hometown to be with our parents and immediate family. If not well plan we might end up stuck in horrific traffic jam.

So before we pack our bags and hit the road, here are a few things that you should cross off your checklist
#1. Check all the electrical outlet around the house. Switch off all non essential equipments
#2. Pack early and not too much. If you run out of clean clothes just wash them
#3. Inform your neighbour of your trip and your estimated time of absence
#4. Make sure there is no stagnant water in your home
#5. Clean your sink
#6. Throw away all the garbage
#7. Make sure your car is in tip top condition. Send your car for a routine service if you haven't done so
#8. Doa ,before you start you engine, so that your trip will go smoothly without any unwanted incident

Last but not least don't forget to SMILE. Smile can release a happy hormones which can help during a long drive home.
I hope that you have a pleasant trip going back home.

Be safe , be kind and be courtesy especially on the road.
