Bangkok / Phuket, as I searched relentlessly on the web for most of last week trying to get the best price on flights & accommodation.
Not to mention scouring reviews of each accommodation on Trip Advisor, Asia Rooms, Hotels, Priceline etc. and coming up with a shortlist.
I was planning a surprise vacation for Bobo. He has been working long hours for the past weeks, and looked like he really needed a break.
So I asked him one evening: if you could take a break, would you want to go to Bangkok, Phuket or Taiwan? Eeps! I’ve no idea why I even put Taiwan to the equation.
“Taiwan”, he quipped. I frantically searched for air & hotel fares moments later, only to realize it was about 40% – 50% above my budget.
But a break was what both of us needed to re-connect with each other, and to spend quality time without the interruption of the emails/sms/calls.
‘Taiwan’, as I googled, yahoo-ed, zuji-ed and the more I read, the more excited I was to go. We could snack at the Shilin Night Market everynight, do wholesale shopping, do luxury shopping at our hotel’s doorstep, have a dip in the hot spring etc. :))
So there, Taiwan. 14 days away.
