Holiday summary

So I realised I didn’t give any details of the so-called mini break. It didn’t happen as it would have been hectic for us, or specifically for me, to be travelling during that time. Instead, we made a last minute reservation at a beach resort within a few hours from home. It was a good thing as I was working until 11pm the night before the start of my holiday.

I must say that the place had everything that we wanted. Soft sandy beach with palm trees scattered along, huts and cabanas to give more shade, pool that comes with a bar, Balinese and Ayurveda spas to choose from, restaurants that cover from Chinese to Italian food, just to name a few. We were there for two nights but it was enough to make me feel rejuvenated.

While the young lady and partner split their time between the beach and the pool, I on the hand was given the luxury to do as I please. I did not let this opportunity go to waste and headed to the spa. It was bliss! I allowed myself to be pampered by the lovely Indonesian lady who did her magic and took my worries (and wrinkles) away.

As we walked along the beach, we saw quite a number of baby crabs as big as the size of 50 cents coin. We even spotted fishes along the jetty located nearby! Not bad eh?

Anyway, it was a good holiday for all of us. Relaxing, refreshing, entertaining... I wish we could do this more frequent but it is quite challenging judging from the way it has been for the past few months.
I suppose it helped me to decide on my next course of action.

Reflection time...

I went to see the C*O to get some papers signed and out of the blue, he asked, “are you ok?”, with a very concerned tone.

Obviously it was written all over my face that even the boss noticed. *sigh*

It is definitely time to reflect.....

Mini break?

The partner got back today after being away for almost two weeks. I think we did pretty ok without him, considering the challenges we face in this city. The young lady has conquered him the moment he stepped into the house and both of them are playing Fairy game with their consoles, giving me space to update this blog.

School holiday has started and this time, I made sure I applied a few days of leave. Our initial plan to go sightseeing within the country is not happening. Instead, the partner suggested that we head here:

Perhaps it’ll be good to take a break from this place. My only reservation is that it is going to be really cold there. As long as it is not snowing heavily, it should be ok.

Count on me

This song is dedicated to my lovely friends wherever you are. Thank you for replying my sms in the middle of the night even there was a sexy man right by your side, picking up my phone calls without fail, cheering me up when I had unexpected health condition (or when my heart was broken far too many times I believe), giving the much needed support when I felt the world was bailing on me, urging me to splurge on bags and shoes as a way to reward myself for all the hard work (the list goes endless).

Ah, it also goes to whoever reads this place and kind enough to share your thoughts. Have a beautiful day!

If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea,
I'll sail the world to find you
If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can't see,
I'll be the light to guide you

Find out what we're made of
When we are called to help our friends in need

You can count on me like 1 2 3
I'll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like 4 3 2
And you'll be there
Cause that's what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah

If you're tossing and you're turning and you just can't fall asleep,
I'll sing a song beside you
And if you ever forget how much you really mean to me,
Everyday I will remind you, ohh

You'll always have my shoulder when you cry
I'll never let go, never say goodbye
