This bucket list was first conceived on 12 August 2011. Since then it has and will continue to undergo many revisions to accommodate my growing and varied interests in the remarkable inhabitants and things that make up planet earth.

Wow... your list is almost the same as my list, except mine consist of 50 items! I would highly recommend the book "1,000 Best Experiences" if you don't already have it.

Hi Juphelia,

Please share your bucket list on your blog. I would love to see where you wanna go and what you wanna do :-) I've also seen the book you recommended in stores before, but didn't buy it due to some reason. Maybe I should look out for it again.

Hi Kheng Siong,

Yes we do tend to visit other countries more. And that's precisely the reason for allocating a few spots for Malaysian destinations.

There are all possible. #29 definitely stands brighter in my eyes. :-)

The Kingdom of Bhutan is a mini Shangri-La (not the hotel) that limits its number of visitors. So it would be an achievement for me if I can visit the country. Moreover the kingdom is ruled by a Dragon King, how cool is that !!!

Your bucket list is missing USA!
Perhaps the "Magnet Fairy" could arrange that this year.
My bucket list has an addition I just scratched off: "survive a plane crash"..lol
Sent you an e-mail with pictures.
Was funny for a few days after until I went to Church and had some serious reflection and I fell apart!
