Happy to report I landed Siem Reap safely yesterday. It felt surreal that I haven’t traveling without the family for so long. I told the girls a week ago and they were fine. But just the night before, Lizzy came to me crying so sadly, holding me tightly for a long 20 min. It was heart breaking to feel her sadness. In the context of recent incidence in the US, I couldn’t but hold her a bit tighter and longer. Fortunately Sofia is mature enough to be fine, assuring Lizzy that mama will be back, and offered to sleep with her that night.
After a rather poor night of sleep I left home 5:30am to catch 7:40am flight. I packed one suitcase this time and only had a backpack on flight, which was so convenient.
For 3 days of work, 4 travel/free days, I packed
- 1 black skit
- 2 dress shirt
- 1 work jacket
- 1 casual jacket
- 3 t-shirt
- 1 jean short
- 1 Pj
- 1 running short
- 1 tight for outdoor activity
- 2 sport bras
- 2 sport tanks
- 1 running hat
- 1 sun hat
- under wears and socks
- 1 pair of sneakers
- 1 pair of sandels
- 1 pair of flip flops for the shower
- yoga mat and 2 lbs weight
snacks so I don’t need and athletic greens as vegetables consumption is expected to be low, electrolyte and peppermint tea
medicine/supplement: herb for my dry eyes, artificial eye drops (4 bottles!!!), dry eye medicine, tylenol, bandit, thermometer, allergy medicine, dulcolax, nasal spray, throat candies, magnesium, omega 3. I think with this stash, i’m well covered for most of incidences.
skincare and makeup, self explanatory 🙂
the first flight offered breakfast, which was okay. The second flight was light lunch (beef noodles).
11 hrs after I left home I finally arrived siem reap my hotel room, which looks nice including a small garden facing the pool.
I was quite tired, didn’t go out for dinner, had some snacks I bought and went to bed before 8pm local time (9pm Manila time). Tomorrow will be a free day as the retreat starts on Monday, will see what I will do with full day on my own.
