About a month back, I made the decision not to go for a fancy (read: hotel, dress up, lucky draw, performances, 10-course meal) staff dinner, making the time instead for myself.
This post is to remind myself – what a good and courageous decision that was.
Well done, you.
Where we decided to go for a short getaway over the National Day holiday 🙂
Yay for natural light, instagrammable tables and decor.
A lesser travelled part of AMK. For me, at least.
“Time is all you have. And you may find one day that you have less than you think.”
On our second (and last) morning there, we planned to wake up at 5.30AM to catch the sunrise.
So Mum’s alarm rang at 5.30AM, home time.
Which translated to 4.30AM in Bintan.
By the time I figured out why the sky was not getting any brighter by the minute, it was around 4.45AM.
Laughing, we decided to use the extra time to shower and freshen up anyway.
Good story for memories ;p
So apart from connecting with the inner Self and recharging the soul, what else did I get up to in the 2 weeks without wifi?
Took up an intensive yoga class, ran away from charging waves, lost a lovely turquoise top in the laundry service after wearing it for just 2 days, and took more random pictures of the resident birds and their nests.
Till next time, wonderful abode of peace.
Welcoming 2017 with memories of 2016.
For 2 weeks in December, the parents and I spent time at the “usual spot”. Kerala, India. Between a stretch of backwaters and the Arabian Sea.
I am convinced that only when we disconnect can we truly connect.
