I leave Manila a few days before Christmas. The thought of being alone wasn’t the least bit bothersome. Instead, I was overflowing with excitement and gratitude. I will be able to spend the holidays celebrating life and caring for the person I have occasionally neglected in the past – me.
I started my 2-week Balinese retreat in Kayumanis Ubud. A luxury resort deep in the heart of Ubud, Bali. And I say deep because it’s a wonderfully long drive from the main road to the lobby. The exclusivity makes you feel like you’re in for some intense self loving! Surely enough, I spent my long 2 days there swimming in my private pool, taking a cooking class, going on a village tour and getting the most amazing massage at their world class spa. I guess you could say I was on a honeymoon with myself, too. I was kidding around with the hotel staff that Kayumanis Ubud is the perfect place for baby-making… or hiding by yourself (like what I did). Merry Christmas to me, indeed.
This is just the beginning of a long series of my Bali adventures.
Stay tuned for the rest of my Bali adventure.
