In the recent days, there was an outbreak of a flu, known as the swine flu, causing a worldwide alert and countries to take immediate action to prepare for any pandemic outbreak worldwide.

It had caused a lot of commotion and it currently looks like a situation more serious than the SARS, nevertheless, we all must be vigilant and take the necessary precautions. BBC News has a great site on the flu outbreak, latest news and information on the Q&A of the flu virus.

The holiday period is coming up and I am also in the midst of planning for a trip overseas. However, with this current flu outbreak, it is a big question mark and we do not know how widespread or damaging this flu can transformed into. 

I am wondering if it is safe to travel overseas for holidays ? I would love to have a overseas holiday break …….
