Spent the first half of November waiting for my chestnut's arrival. Three weeks never felt this long before and I was completely lost when it came to the weekends. Nevertheless it was a great opportunity for me to catch up with friends whom I have not seen in a while and spent a day with my cousin too. And I was also lucky to be offered to work for several events on weekends, which kept me busy over the weekends. And birthday lunches to attend on weekends as well.
The three weeks of separation (I know I made it sound dramatic) made me realise something too. Glad that Chester was making every effort climbing hills and standing in the cold for more than an hour on a particular spot on the hill every afternoon and night just to whatsapp me. Phone calls weren't an option because i) it is expensive ii) it is a desert and reception was poor (thus he resorted going up the particular spot of the hill everyday) and iii) viber/skype didn't work as well.
Had a short getaway to Batam for our monthsary. It was the first time we were celebrating our monthsary in 21 months haha. Needless to say, I was happy. Happy that I had a cheap and nice body massage and hair spa too. Bumped into our friends and when we checked out the next day, we had the BEST fish and chips, and went into an apartment at Montigo Resort for a swim with friends. Lucky us!
All in all, it was the perfect short getaway I could ask for. From all my assignments and whatnot.
