A Travellerspoint blog

A short, tiny break



The "Rest & Relax" benefit should be used up before the end of the year but we don't have the chance to go out of town, so we decided to try and stay at one of the most expensive hotels in Jakarta. Checked in Friday evening after work. On Saturday walked to the nearby mall and watched a movie and had lunch. Afternoon-evening kinda sucked cuz both of us ended up in front of our laptops doing some work!! Have I become one of those people who can't get away from work and don't have a peaceful personal life? Not again.

The next day, Sunday, we drove to find a place to have breakfast. Oh yeah our room rate didn't include breakfast and we chose not to pay additional $20 for breakfast per person. Hotel food is usually the same - no taste :p besides too expensive.

After that we were back to the hotel and tried the pool. He had to go for an assignment (see?). Since there was nothing else to do other than waiting for check out time, I invited my parents and sister to come visit us at the hotel and see if anyone would like to try the pool. They got there when the sun is high, no one wanted to get burnt. So we just packed our bags and checked out. He went for the assignment, and I went somewhere else with my sister and parents. Reminded me of younger days. I wish my other sister were there too. At this age, getting together with siblings and parents means a lot to me. Even just a lunch out together or just watching TV together. It's not easy to get together now. Separated by distance, sea, very expensive air ticket, international law... Not easy being a national who must get visa anywhere I want to go, and having many countries paranoid of us people from the so-called 3rd world country...

I'll just float....................
