Hey guys! Happy holidays! So, since it’s the holiday and I’m pretty sure a lot of people are going for a vacation, like me.

Ching! J

Yes, by the time I’m posting this, I’ll be going to Port Dickson on the next day.

So excited!

*Jumping around hysterically*

So, following the mood this week and since I’ve went on vacation for quite a few times, I’m gonna share with you guys 5 things to prepare when you are going on a vacation. This applies to either local or abroad.

I’m sure there’s more but for now let’s just share 5 things.

Tips #1 : Accommodation.
Make sure you have a place to stay at wherever you plan to go because if not, then you’ll be a homeless person on a stranger’s place. Check if you have a relative who lives nearby and if you do have and they are willing to let you stay, perfect!

If you don’t have any or they don’t allow you to stay then you can just book your place online. Nowadays we have a lot of websites that can help you find a place according to your preferences. We have Trivago, Agoda,, etc.

Now we’re moving on to....

Tips #2 : Transportation.
Make sure you know which transportation you will use to get there because you definitely not gonna walk to go to that place....I mean, you can but then you might die half way there.

So once you have decided which transportation, make sure it is in good condition or if you travel by public transport or airplane, make sure you remember the time of departure, write it inside you handphone’s memo pad or the refrigerator or on the ceiling of your bedroom or at the mirror in your bathroom or all of the above.

Tips #3 : Map/Know the location.
If you are going to a foreign place or a place you have never been before, make sure you have a map either in your phone or the old fashion map or even the globe, any way possible.

I know it’s much more fun and adventurous if you just randomly go and find a place but you might waste a lot of time, you might end up in a scary place and again, you might die.

So it’s best to be safe and study the place you’re about to go on vacation.

Tips #4 : Money.
Make sure you have enough money for accommodation, transportation and for emergency, in case something happen. I’m not saying that it will happen, which is good God, I hope not but you can never be sure. Shit things happen. Hope for the best but expecting the worst.

Honestly, if I don’t have enough money to cover all that stuff, I would just cancel the trip because I would freak out if something happen and I don’t have the money.

Tips #5 : Handphone & Charger.
Its 2017, I’m sure almost all of us have handphone. So, it’s important that you bring it with you when going on a vacation. Like I said earlier, shit things happen. So if you have a phone, you can contact appropriate person to help you out or something.

But, the phone will be useless without sufficient battery. Therefore, you should also bring your charger or power bank or any sort of devices that will increase your phone’s battery.

Okay, that’s all I got for you this week. I’m sure there’s a lot more things to prepare when going on a vacation but this are the most basic things you should know.

So this week  I wanna know, what are your tips when going for a vacation? Where are you going to this holiday? What are the most memorable moments of your previous vacation?

Hey guys! So today I’m not going to share any tips but instead I’m gonna share with you guys about my life (like you don’t know enough..haha) and one of my main goal for this year.
As far as I know and I’m sure all of you guys know it too, that my life is boring or kinda boring. Nothing huge or outstanding happen in my life. I mean good things.

Mostly my everyday life is pretty average, especially since I started working last year. All I do is wake up in the morning, go to work, come home for lunch, go back to work and then come home at 6pm, sometimes later than that.

And on my weekend, I update my blog, doing some writing, watch tv and online.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad that I have a job. It’s been very beneficial for me and my family. And I’m also not saying that my job now is the reason why I have a boring life.

It’s just that with work, my activity is limited. I work from 9am to 6pm, that’s almost the entire day. But then of course, the other reason for my boring life is because I’m not adventurous enough and I’m a lazy person.

Typical me.

I’m not trying to wish my life would be epic everyday because I know that one day I will feel too tired to keep up. I just want to achieve or obtain something that is big or something that I can really be proud of.

But just by saying I want it, won’t make it come true.

So that why this year I’m planning to turn it up around and create 1 goal.

So basically what I have planned recently is that I will do a lot more stuff and try to grab as much opportunity as I can.

Honestly, even though last year is a good year for me, but I feel like I wasn’t trying hard enough to obtain a big accomplishment.

That’s why this year I’m sending my second full manuscript to as many book publisher as I can and I am still trying to find other book publisher to widen the chance for my manuscript to be publish.

Besides that, I’m also starting to do a part time job, which some of you might know, it’s a telco business

Visit my Facebook (Zac Shurtugal Nazrin) to know more.


And my sister also in the middle of doing her own clothing business and I will be a part of that too.

So, this year might be a busy year for me but I really hope all turns out great.

Wish me luck!

Okay, that’s all for this week. I’m so sorry if this post bored you but I just had to share it with you guys.

You guys are my personal psychiatrist.


So this week I wanna what’s your plan for this year? How are you going to make this year better than last year?

Hey guys! I’m back with a movie review, which I haven’t done in like....years?
So this week, I’ll be sharing my opinion about a movie that I watched at the cinema last Wednesday with my colleague boss, because he said we need some bonding time. Therefore he decided to do a “company outing”...”amazing”!

Honestly, the only bonding thing I can think of for the company is by using superglue.

Well back to the movie!

So, at first my boss planned to watch Rogue One (I've watched it actually but I don’t care) but the movie is no longer in cinema, so he switched to Passenger.

Okay, some people might label me as a big fan of sci-fi movies and books, and maybe I am, but only those that are good ones because I know there’s a few lame ones. So, yeah, I don’t like those sucky sci-fi movies.

Anyway, I did saw the trailer for Passenger and honestly, I did feel like watching it. From the trailer it looks interesting and a bit mysterious on why they were the only people who woke up early from their hibernation thing. And plus, there was a part in the trailer where Chris Pratt said ‘There’s a reason why we woke up’ or something like that, and I was like ‘Holy crap!’.

So yeah, when my boss said we will watch the Passenger, I didn’t argue...haha...

The movie was about 2 hours...I think.

All I can say is that the movie is.....AWESOME! I know that it sounded cliché coming from me but it’s the truth. The plot was not as stereotype as you thought it will be. Maybe there is a few scenes that are but a lot of them are not. That’s all I can say about the plot, I don’t wanna spoil anything.

The scenery or the set of the movie, to me, is not that special. Maybe because I’ve seen a lot of movies involving space ship and stuff, so nothing really impress me.....Oh, but I like the shape of the space ship, from outside. It was interesting. And I also like the space, I mean, the stars and the planets, but maybe that is because I like the sky in general.

The scores were quite good, it suite the scenes but I can’t recall if there’s one that attracted me.

Now let’s talk about the casts. Chris Pratt’s character in general is pretty standard, nothing really pops-up. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a good actor. He played his character very genuinely, but his character is just an average guy. Of course I didn’t expect him to be an alien or a robot or have super powers or so, and I’m ok with his character but just that nothing really interesting.

Oh my God, I probably just ruined your thoughts on the movie.

I’m sorry!

For Jennifer Lawrence’s character is more or less pretty standard but there are a few things that I think interest me because she did something that average women won’t do. And of course her character is a tough woman. I think it’s because it’s Jennifer Lawrence, she will not play a woman who is weak or dependent. And honestly, I like one of the scene that made me a bit surprised but it was good, unexpected I might say.

So overall, I say, I recommend you to watch it. It’s amazing.

That’s all from me this week! Ciao!

This week I wanna know what’s the last movie you’ve watched on cinema? And what do you think of the movie?

So like previous years on new year, I would like to say thank you for the people who have made my 2016 a good year. First of all my family, I will forever be grateful for them for being supportive when it comes to chasing my dream, love me for who I am, though there were arguments along the year (which family doesn't?) but we still love and care for each other....

OMG! I'm gonna cry!

Just kidding....

Second is my best friends, I have 3 now! Thank you to all 3 of you for also being supportive and encouraging and for spending your time to hangout with me, though I know sometimes you were kinda busy. I hope our friendship will last forever...and ever....and ever....and ever.

Third is for those people who have directly or indirectly inspired me to go after my dream and to continue blogging with new stuff and making me happy when I'm feeling down or angry. And for making me not regret doing what I was doing because if I didn't do those things, I might not be here blogging and sending my manuscript to the publishing companies.

I'm gonna cry again!

Third, I would like to say thank you to all of you, viewers of Blog Around The Corner, you guys are awesome for viewing my blog and increasing the pageviews every day until I have more than 17,000 pageviews and leaving your comments for me to read. You guys are amazing! 

Lastly, I wanna say thank you to those people who have somehow making me walk through this path I'm walking right now, though I don't know what it will lead to but as for now, I am in a good condition, mentally and physically. So thank you for what you said or do or...text or...sing or....blink...I don't know...but again, thank you...

I feel like I'm rambling right now but for those who understand what I just wrote, you're amazing.

And finally, I just wanna say (or write) I love all of you, you all are great and have a great weekend, hope you'll have a wonderful year in 2017 and may what you wish for finally came true.

I know that previously I said that I wish I could stay in 2016 because I don't have any accomplishment yet but now I'm looking forward to 2017 because I feel like it's another chance for to achieve whatever I dream about. And I hope you guys feel the same way too.

So, that's all for now.

This time I wanna know how was your new year celebration? Or what are your plan for the new year celebration? Who are you celebrating with? Did you kiss anyone? Or who are you planning to kiss when the clock strike 12?
