I’m back in the thick of things at work but my muscles are still aching for the amazing massages I had in Bali 🙂 Suffice to say the Tan Cousin getaway was a success!! With all things Tan, there were things that didn’t quite meet our expectations but the company is all we needed to have a great break and enjoy celebrations.
In my family there are 12 cousins, 6 boys and 6 girls. 1 lives in Zurich, 4 in Perth and the 7 in Singapore. With our other halves, this generation has grown to 18. So 8 out of 18 made it for our inaugural Cousin Getaway. With 3 still under the age of 18, I say that’s a pretty good turn out 🙂 Maybe when I’m in my 70s, we’ll be able to do a complete 24 Cousin Getaway.
Meanwhile, in Bali we basically hung out,got massages, ate, hung out some more. It’s been a while since we hung out like that and it’s nice to know, we enjoy each other’s company enough to be locked up in a villa altogether. I do take that for granted some times – the fact that I get along with my cousins. Sure, we have our disagreements and we aren’t all crazy about each other idiosyncrasies but we’re proud of each other’s accomplishments and can genuinely be happy hanging out with each other. That doesn’t happen often.
Life can get complicated some times but I have it good most of the time. We’re planning to make this trip an annual one and now we’re thinking about next year. Some say Phuket, another is enticing us to make a ski trip to Zurich. Some are thinking of going back to Perth, which is kinda like home for most of us. Wherever we decide, I’m sure we’ll have fun 🙂
