Vacation for Two

Yeshh..will be going on a short..very shot escapade soon.
That was THE DEAL - if mi senors amigos in the World Cup won.
And ole..ole oole..they did WiN!

Looks like somebody's paying for a round of jalan2 then..hehe

But that's not the thing that i want to share with you today :)


It's this: WHAT MAKES A VACATION A REAL VACATION?


A. Is it in the destination you're going?
B. How much $$ you're spending?
C. The many places you're visiting?
D. The souvenirs you're buying?
E. All of the above.
F. None of the above.

Ooopss..something macam terpelanting here.

Sincerely, i think it is in the person that you're going with.

Agree? :)

I remember a few days escapades that mi other half and i had recently. It was just in Sandakan. Itu pun sb ada business agenda di sana. We only stayed at budget accommodations..since we spent most times out doors. The time spent together with your significant other can never be replaced with any material gift in the world - i think. haha..but i'm sure you feel the same.


I also remember i accidentally booked a hotel room that was NOT equipped with a television set.


Yes. TV - less. It was at this jungle resort. Style jungle2 and eco friendly la kunun. And to make things worse..it was during the official opening ceremony of the FIFA World Cup. There was not a single television set in the lobby or dining area. Ya, truly jungle resort i guess.
I felt guilty. He was a bit frustrated.
Inda dapat tingu siaran langsung gia..

A television-less evening of the night of the world cup opening ceremony. What could be worse than that?

Nothing. It was amazing.

An amazing television - less evening, on the night of one of the most important event in the world.

You get to spend the time together (okay, i'm really careful in choosing my words right now since i think i know what's in your mind NOW)

Laughter and jokes, teasing and everything..it's a DATE. Heheh..

All said and done - i'm ready for the next escapade.

So..how do you know u had a good time during ur holiday?

a vacation for me is when the place still feels like home but obviously it's a total different way of life altogether. and when i get back, i'd be able to talk about it up to tiny details because ive enjoyed the vacay so much. to have the other half with you would be an extra advantage to be more sentimental of that particular holiday trip.

when i travel, i make it a point to have at least learn something new i.e of culture etc etc from the trip.
