A work colleague asked me how I’m spending my Christmas holidays this year and I told him I’m going for a tour in Asia. He said “That’s a lot of countries, soul searching?” I thought that was a funny comment. Although I only specified China, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Indonesia in this post, there is indeed plans of visiting other countries too. Unfortunately, I have not planned this as well as I could have as I was severely deprived of time and swamped with other commitments. Booking these holidays last minute did not help – one could say that we booked our tickets on a whim which is a testament to how much attention we were only able to put in this holiday. Tickets were literally purchased, less than 2 weeks before we leave. However, we pulled through and I am looking forward to ending 2018 in a sunny tropical beach and starting 2019 with a fresh mind.
