Since the movement control order (MCO) in Malaysia is in place until April 14, now is a good time to look back at those holiday memories and compile your travel photos.

Hands up if you have a million photos from your travels in your phone or camera right now? Photography is almost always synonymous with globetrotting. But for many people, these images usually lie idle when they return home from their trips.

Since the movement control order (MCO) in Malaysia is in place until April 14, now is a good time to look back at those holiday memories and compile your travel photos.

Here are some suggestions on how to take a trip down memory lane.

Make a postcard or a greeting card

Chances are you might have missed a birthday or two while you’re travelling abroad. Make it up to your loved ones by turning your vacation photos into something meaningful. Apart from it being a touching gesture, a greeting card with a picture you shot yourself is a great way to relate your travel experiences.

Create a postal stamp

Now that you have that postcard ready, it’s only right that the accompanying stamp should be created from your travel photo too. Pos Malaysia has a service where customers can feature their image during a special moment or occasion on stamps. The Setem Ku Individual service is available online at posonline.com.my.

Make a photo book

With plenty of app and websites that offer fool-proof instructions, it’s really easy to compile your photos into a nice book these days. You would be amazed at how your travel photos might turn out when printed on glossy paper. Some services that are available locally include Photobook, Pixajoy and MyFlippix. In fact, Photobook Malaysia is currently doing a giveaway of 1,000,000 photo books.

Do a wall art

This could be a nice DIY home improvement project for your room or that special corner of your home. The aforementioned photo book platforms can also make photo prints for you. The prints can come in a range of materials such as canvas, metal and even wood.

Post on social media

This is a no-brainer, and some might even consider this the “lazy” option. But hey, there’s nothing wrong with posting up your travel photos online and raking up those virtual likes. With the MCO in place, consider creating a new Instagram profile solely for your travel photos. If you’re up for it, go ahead and set up a travel blog. It might be an enterprising venture down the down.
