Plans in the Next Few Weeks

I know it's too early to make plan for Christmas but I have already received a mailer on Christmas promotions few days ago.

In a week's time, we'll be taking a short vacation during the long weekend break in Seminyak, Bali. After spending weeks of research, I had settled for Ulin Resorts and Villas, which happens to be the most popular specialty lodging in Seminyak. In this day and age, travelers are savvy in comparing hotels for their holidays. TripAdvisor is the best place to go for hotel tips, reviews and travelers' information.

This year, we will be celebrating Christmas in Brisbane. Though we may not be putting pup C9 led christmas lights, but we should be spending it in a different manner. I have booked our short term accommodation in Kangaroo Point while we find a permanent place in the southside.

So many things are happening and there'll be a few more Asia trips and vacation in the next one month. It is definitely exciting for me as a work at home mom but I need to be more efficient in my planning in our relocation plans. And did I mention that I'll be doing my lasik in two days' time and I'm getting a little nervous :)

Back from The Perhentian Islands

We took a good break from the home office a week ago when we spent some time with a few good friends at the Perhentian islands.

That was my first trip to the island and though the journey required two transfers by van and speed boat, it was awesome. Never had I seen such crystal clear waters and the weather was perfect during that time. Just by strolling along the beach or standing at the shore, we could see fishes and it was great fun and excitement for the kids.

Clayton enjoyed himself so much that it was hard to get him out of the beach every time. We took a short boat trip to Rawa island and that was one fantastic place to snorkel. The fishes are aplenty and the kids didn't even have to go far to see tropical fishes. For the first time, I snorkelled in clear waters and it was amazing beholding the parrotfish and corals under the sea. I fell in love with the waters and forgot all about the sun at some point.

The only complaint was the room condition in Perhentian Island Resort which was badly maintained. The lighting was poor and the towels weren't clean at all. Apart from the expensive and badly maintained room, the waters was a great consolation.

The trip ended after four nights and I'm missing those lovely clear waters of Perhentian. I am tempted to check out Sipadan now but that would mean another break from the home office. My schedule is getting busier! And did I say I'm enjoying it!
