to korea and back…

Yup… i am back from my short vacation … and back at work… not a very happy place in recent times. In brief, i would say it was a good break… and in fact the best of the  4 official “annual obligation” trips we have had so far. Well… many friends and  people who know us frown at the thought of bringing both their parents and in-laws out on a holiday @ the same time. We on the other hand have in fact done this 4 times. Frankly…it was not easy… and every trip would have someone… or in fact more than one person getting upset over trival stuff. You may then ask… why even bother to do this year after year? I don’t have the answer really. Is it an obligation that bites us? Or maybe it is the guilt of not spending enough time with our mothers. I believe it is a bit of both… with the latter taking dominance. Anyway… here’s some high&low-lights of the trip… 1. Great scenery, fresh air and plenty of time away from home. The week leading up to the trip was quite difficult for me

bye bye sad world…

Off to happy place for a week… Hopefully by the time i am back… i can feel a tad happier… Kimchi-land…. HERE I COME!

my Nike

Hwa has been walking into Nike shops over the past two weeks, and looking earnestly @ the Apple / Nike Plus device. In his usual prudent fashion, he walks out not purchasing it at all. On Friday, I decided to pop into the nearest Nike shop to get him the Nike Plus + Sportsband. Silly me did not realise that  with his iPhone, he actually does not need the sportsband at all. Nonetheless, he was a happy boy. One thing led to another… where he got another device, and passed me the first device + sportsband so we can run together. Then we realised… we needed a pair of nike shoes each so the device can work properly…. so… ta-dah! New shoes! Anyway… just did my “first run/walk”…. and loving the Nike website… Now there’s an easy and fuss free way to track my runs. But… i think the only downside is … i am unable to include my regular yoga sessions into the same programme… Oh well… If only all my digital marketing work is as fantastic as this site!
