This post is super long overdue. I just couldn't get into my blogging mojo since we came back from the trip. I feel like it is now slowly coming back, and I am excited to get back to updating everything here.
So, I don't really remember what was the reason for this trip, but the whole idea of going on a short trip was Adrian's idea. Shocking right, I know. I thought it was a trick question when he asked me if I wanted one. My eyebrows were raised, but I said yes in a heartbeat. Hah.
The initial plan was to go somewhere in Malaysia so we could bring the kids, but Adrian wanted a trip for just the both of us. It was really sweet, but I was hesitant at first. I could not leave Adam because he is just a baby.
However, it didn't take that long for me to agree with Adrian - to not bring kids with us. Hah.
I'm the best mom in the world or what?
The answer is yes lah please. Take care of myself first then only I can take good care of my children ma. Self care, self love all important okay please. Leave your judgemental attitude outside this space please. Heh.
So, once we decided it was only 2 of us, the options became bigger and we decided to go out of the country. He wanted Japan but we could only be away for 4 days. That was the maximum number of days I could handle without being with Adam. So we put Japan back into "pending for future" box. He insisted at first, but going to Japan for less than a week is nonsense la please.
I thought of Maldives, but it is quite far and to go for 4 days only also macam waste of money and not to mention it's going to cost a bomb. So, obviously we threw that idea away.
Somehow we got to Taiwan and the weather at that time is winter-ish, and it's not expensive to fly there. So, we immediately book our flight tickets. I was in-charged (self-appointed heh) of booking the accommodation and went with CitizenM. Read many good reviews of this hotel, and it's modern style suits me, so I decided to proceed with it. Read more on the other post okay.
Flight ticket was RM3,130 for 2 adults with China Airlines. I am thankful that we didn't have to use AirAsia because I will be honest - I prefer normal airlines for like destinations that require more than 2 hours of flying. I need that kind of comfort. Heh.
China Airlines that time was the best price and although not the best timing, it was still a good experience.
We got to the airport at brunch time so we could check in early and chill at the premium lounge. Adrian has 2 different credit cards that allows free access to lounges worldwide, so yay me.
It was so nice to sit down with each other with no distractions and not rush our conversations. It was really a romantic moment in that corner seat during our lunch. He had to work after that, so I watched Netflix and Dashing Diva-ed my nails.
