SK's one-month school break officially begins today. We celebrated the holiday with a BBQ at best friend's house last night. She asked if we would be keen to go on a scuba diving vacation in Phuket this month. I had to decline because it clashes with my business trip to Shanghai.
This is the second year which I had not planned any trips for the kids. We used to travel during the school holidays, sometimes even squeezing in a short trip during a one-week school break. I wonder what's holding me back this time? The lack of interest, spare funds, Rusty or the aquarium? There's always a reason.
I didn't want to disappoint the kids, so I booked a holiday chalet for SK and his friends in Costa Sands Resort in mid-June. There's a swimming pool and theme park to keep them occupied. Two full days in the sun, swimming, playing and barbequing with friends should be loads of fun for a bunch of teens.
YK's holiday won't start until 8 June. I've got nothing planned for him but he's old enough to take care of his own vacation.
As for me, I'll stick around and dream about the next vacation.
