Taiwan here I come (again)…

Oh my, time really does fly. I remember writing about not having the time to work out the itinerary for my Taiwan trip a few months ago. The next thing I know I’ll be leaving for Taiwan with the girls in two days’ time. I’ve come to realise that planning a travel itinerary isn’t a walk in the park at all. You need to find out all the nitty gritty details that you didn’t even know exist in the first place. Even after doing so much research, I still can’t say I know the directions to some of the destinations in our itinerary. That’s where the tour guides come in, I suppose. Thank goodness for them.

Flying to Taiwan
More research on Taiwan.

I think I’ve mentioned this many times before – I’m not a planner by nature. I enjoy doing it only if whatever that I’m planning is meant for myself. In that way I only need to be accountable for myself if things screw up. Makes sense? I guess that’s why I know I can’t survive in a project management role and that explains why I rejected a recent job offer.

Back to the trip, this will be my second visit to Taiwan and I’m looking forward to it. I enjoyed myself immensely when I was there about three years ago and this time we’ll also be travelling to Nantou for our homestay experience on top of our stay in Taipei. I’ll be back in Singapore on the 26th and hopefully I’ll have plenty of interesting stories and experiences to share.

It’s been so many years since I last travelled with the girls and we’ve talked about going on a trip together for the longest time. It’s really good to be able to do it with them again. So here we go, time to let our hair down and have a fantastic trip!

Back from a 6-month hiatus

Hey everyone, I’m back! Has it been six months already?

I hope this new layout works out perfectly fine because it took me ages to fix the codes. I was thinking I should start doing up another new layout since it took me so long just to come up with one. Maybe I should, since I have so much time on my hands right now. For the uninitiated, I’m currently taking a break from work after I resigned from my job back in July.

Yes, it feels really good not having to get up in the morning for work and I love it that I have time to do my own stuff. Having said that, sending job applications can be a pain but I’ll not go into that now.

I’m going on a 5-day trip to Phuket this coming Sunday with Ms. Niyo and will return on Thursday. This will be my first visit to Phuket and I can’t wait! Hope it’ll be fun despite the possibility of heavy downpours, no thanks to the monsoon season. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that the sun will shine long enough for us to check out the beaches.

Anyway, it’s good to be back online.

A short break

Yes! I’m going to Bintan for a 2D1N stay this weekend. Nothing to shout about but I’m in desperate need of a break from the monotony of my life which comprises mainly of work, eat and sleep, work, eat and sleep… Sigh.

My life does suck sometimes, when I think about it.

Am I the only one who leads such a boring life? I’m hitting the big three-O soon but I don’t seem to have achieved much in the past ten years. Maybe it’s time to take some action instead of ranting about it.
