How I spent my Christmas

I am in an Internet cafe who is charging me insane amounts of money just to write to my parents and leave everyone a message.


This year hasn’t particularly been easy, but it’s been a productive year with lots of adventures, blood, sweat and tears, especially in the career front.

I’m currently in Van Vieng in Laos and just spent the day having a leisurely satay breakfast, cave tubing and kayaking the entire day in a lazy river.

Afterwards, we caught the sunset, had a nice chocolate milo pancake made from the best pancake maker in Van Vieng, and then enjoyed a relaxing traditional Laos massage for 30,000 kip (around USD3). Ahhh…. this is life.

I can finally forget my troubles (though would be roughly reminded of them as soon as I get back) and just enjoy the present. Also met a new friend who I’m going rock climbing with tomorrow, and his story is just as interesting as you can hear. My time is running out though so will just share with you his story when I get back.

In a few days, I’ll be in Luang Prabang — one of UNESCO’s world heritage sites, and my traveling companion claims it’s one of the best places on earth.

True or false… will see!

Happy holidays!


About Tina

I'm a forgetful person. But I think a lot. Every day, a lot of thoughts enter my head. That's why this blog came to be: first, to keep my memories alive through the years, and two, to actually see how I and my thoughts have changed. Please note that I seldom draft or edit my posts. Sometimes, if I'm not careful, I offend some of you, my readers. And while I apologize for making you feel uncomfortable, I am not sorry for being honest or for making well-intentioned mistakes. I will however be the first to admit if I change my mind. Hence, do read and proceed with caution. My life is as colorful and as boring as you make it. I complain many days, but offer some encouragement in others. Life is fluid, it changes. So keep the positives and throw away the negatives, and I do hope that at the end of the day, you will enjoy reading the blog and leaving comments here and there if my posts touches you. Happy reading!
