An Upcoming Reality

Found this postcard at the Post Secret website:

And was surprised on how much I can relate to it.

So far, without my parents’ knowledge, I’ve been to Hong Kong, Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar. I was thinking of Vietnam or India next this December, until I’ve received an email from my parents last week:

Dad wants to know if you got any holidays in December. This trip we stayed at PanYu, remember the Changlong Hotel which has a night safari zoo in Panyu? Were you with us then to the Canton Trade Fair?

The Night Zoo is modified to a grand international circus and the hotel we stayed in gave us a suite which has one big room and one big living room. So Dad wants to know if your company has any holidays in December. Please advise. Maybe youc an join us from Taipei to Hong Kong.

Panyu or Yunan, not really sure but again, they want to visit Mainland China.



But they’ve asked me a direct question: Do you have any holidays?

The thing is, shall I tell them the entire truth?

My ex-AXXX colleague is good to go to India this December and I want to go too.

Decisions, decisions.

What do you think? Shall I go with my parents to the boring Night Zoo, or visit the Taj Mahal and eat authentic Indian curry (and maybe even suffer LBM while am at it)?

Your thoughts appreciated.


About Bonita

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!

    hmm, tough decision.. if you don’t get to see your parents as often these days, you should hang with them… even if it’s going to be more boring, we’re all getting older.. maybe you can convince them to go to india?

    Haha, my parents are now looking into tours in Vietnam. Hope it really works out. Otherwise can just go back to Manila and spend Christmas there — it’s really a big thing back home, and yes, you guys have convinced me that spending time with your parents is really the best thing to do!

    Thanks JoanH for the comment, and more power to your blog! Looking forward to more yummy reviews!
