Special moments create special memories, especially when we travel.
I had one of this special memories on my trip to Cameron Highlands in Malaysia.
Being a city girl, my concept of stars in the sky is pretty much limited to seeing the few scattered lights blinking in the sky. I would think them pretty and stare as much as possible while trying to walk. Cameron Highlands was my first experience being up in the mountains.
Have you ever experienced a sky full of stars?
That night, as I stood in the cool of the night, I had my face turned up against the sky and my mouth wide open, gaping in amazement.
That night, the sky was a FIELD of stars. There didn’t seem to be any gap in between any of the stars, they were so close to each other.
Since the lodge was on top of a hill, the sky seemed so close I could just reach out to touch the stars. I could not stop watching, even with the crick in my neck.
And then, it happened in a blink of an eye, I almost missed it.
A star dropped from the sky, just like that.
My first and only shooting star.
Isn’t that just an awe-inspiring memory? I was too late to make any wishes though. It was seriously gone with a blink! 🙂
Have you ever seen such a sky full of stars? Have you ever experienced such a special memory on your travels? Please do share!
