at times in life, you are reminded of how you should be grateful for the things you have, no matter how small or big it is, and whether it’s tangible or intangible. this time, my reminder came from the lovely writer behind the blog Indonesia in my pocket, in the celebration of her blog’s 2nd birthday. to win the giveaway she is having, we (all of you, who feel like it!) are supposed to tell her about the most fun we’ve had in the last 2 years and why. to see the complete rules, please visit the link.
for Indonesia in my pocket: thank you, for the chance of remembering the fun i’ve had. your blog rocks!
below is my attempt/entry for her giveaway, in exactly 150 words. 🙂
going abroad, other than to Indonesia, is somewhat rare in our household. naturally, once we do, it’s always exciting and exotic to me. the one we did last year to Amsterdam was one of the first few of those and it has remained one of the most fun i’ve had in the last 2 years.
i tried and failed to point a finger to what it is exactly that makes it fun, because in truth, the whole process & experience was a joy. starting from years of working with no trip-abroad holidays, to the small surprise from my husband that we would actually go someplace new, to not expecting too much but getting much more from the trip, to seeing my husband’s first product on the display of his dream store, to finding nostalgic things from this foreign city.
it was, in short, a perfectly fun time in my life.
