Bit Worry X Plus Guilty: Ended Fine,February

it was that kind of dilemma

- wanted to totally enjoy travelling

- yet it feels scary not to get email

*

so i prepared for the worst

- 2 trips during early, mid Feb

- Lunar New Year break

- shortest month of the year

*

but it turned out well

the month started at Sihanoukville

it was that kind of

no itinerary just chilling trip

with the bff who understands

how i work

*

so i wasn’t really worried

of course there were days that

i woke up super early

like 4, 5, 6 AM

at different locations

*

just to get work done

before we start the day

it was hard seriously

given the rain

*

but thank goodness

since there was zero

activity in the evening

got to sleep really early

*

so lack of sleep was

stricken out of my

post vacation blues

*

i nevertheless slept

quite a lot after

the trip

*

got to work by the beach

so really close

Long Set Resort, i sort of forgot the name of the island, damn

*

workload was pretty

overwhelming

but i managed to

finish the tougher part

on this very island

*

before i settled the

other easier, yet

large volume task

respectively at

- another hotel at Serendipity beach

- pool side of that hotel

- Sihanouk airport

- KLIA 2

- home

*

was stranded at KLIA 2

for at least 3 hours

as bus ticket back home

was sold out

*

so instead of loitering

i actually worked for 3 hours

until my laptop was

out of battery

*

and rewarded myself with

2-3 episodes of

Chinese espionage series

during the bus journey

*

that was early February

mid February was kinda plain

stuck in post vacation blues

and pre occasion anxiety

*

you have no idea

how much do i want to

get away during Lunar New Year

*

this year it’s finally happening

but it was a mid approach

at least i stayed at home

until 11 PM on Day 1 of

Lunar New Year

*

playing the role of

the anti-social yet

hospitable host at home

*

and caught a flight to

Kaohsiung early morning on

Day 2 of Lunar New Year

*

it was a good choice to

choose Tainan as our destination

found out later from stats on TV

that apparently

it’s a popular choice

with folks from the North (Taipei)

for Lunar New Year celebration

*

was less busy during this trip

at least during the first two days

as i flew on a Saturday and

it was Lunar New Year still

*

so for now

i am trying to

arrange flights during weekends

at least for the next two trips

*

so that i can reduce the chance of

missing important emails

and busy dealing with emails

once i touch down at a new city

*

and i get a good night sleep

while getting rid of jet lag

or whatsoever before

restarting the work+travel pace

*

in other words

flying on weekends means

forgoing cheaper weekday rate

which i think is fair enough

*

came back a week later

on the 24th

had a pretty busy week

and poooof

soon February was over

(with a pat on the shoulder)

*

and 2 months without shopping

and still going strong

*

March on

up next

Chongqing!!!
