I Need A Vacation

I went over the Ahmed Kerpomovic's Let's Go Land and was pleasantly greeted by his return from a vacation from somewhere cold somewhere in Malaysia and it got me to thinking when was it that I last had a vacation. Hmmm, hmmmm, hmmmm, hmmm, hey I can't remember. Has it really been that long?

The last time I had a serious vacation was with the whole family many revolutions around the sun ago. Yes, if I remember it right, the Sun was then a young Star, definitely younger than the morning sun we have out there today.

Come to think of it, I have not been in the well lately and could it be due to a vacationless lifestyle that I have been leading of late? In fact, I have been slipping in and out of fever the past 2 to 3 days and am not actually feeling pink as I slave my 2 fingers on this keyboard.

I am paying for my own mistakes. Now I realise it. No, not the not taking a vacation part but rather the not making myself afford a vacation part. I only have myself to blame you know.

I knew of a shortcut to affording many many luxurious vacations to way-off exotic islands but chose not to. What an arsehole and now I am whining.

All I had to do was to join a certain political party, be active, cling hard to certain successful leaders in the party, slave for them, suck up real hard till you burp and voila, I could afford to go for all the vacations I wanted.

No, seriously, lets talk about a real vacation without dirty, ill gotten money. I think I need one this year. As it is right now, with the fever and all, a cold place is not something I have in mind.

Actually my idea of a vacation is basking in the sun on a beautiful stretch of white or golden beach. I was thinking of doing it in the nude but I do not want to be cruel. Imagine a 5'5" frame covered in 106kg of blubber beached. That would just be too much, even for a nudist community. It could even get some concerned conservertionist calling the "Beached Whale Squad".

Anyway it is the monsoon season so a retreat of this nature may just turn out to be a wasted trip. I know, I think I need a trip to the capital and meet up new friends. Yes, people whom I have befriended in cyberspace but have yet to meet, that is if they would want to meet me.

I think I'd just do that. I have longed to meet my cyberfriends but all previous plans did not materialise. I hope this time around, I would be able to make it. When? Well, lets just wait. It should be some time during this coming school holidays.

Chikgu,
Indonesia seems to be the most popular destination for political supporters. No wonder politicians need to make so much money to be one.

cikgu,

like you, i cant remember the last time i took a vacation. so the recent holiday trip was looong overdue. i had to bust my ass of for 3 months in order to save enough to go on a break. while there i thought its wise i splash a bit as i dont when else will i get to enjoy another one.

as for this comin school break, i'd ditch you anytime if there had any nudist beach here in our country but since takde, we'll make do with having you around for company over some scrumptious meal and teh tarik...muahahha...certainly looking forward to that, sir!

A trip to the city would be a brilliant idea, sir. People down here, I believe, are eager to see you in person. You can stay in a quiet, family hotel like Shah Motel right here in the heart of PJ - secluded but within a convenient distance to the amenities like food. he he.

No, my comments isn't paid by Shah Motel - it's just that I like the size and the ambience - very much like Heritage Hotel at Jalan Burmah (a bigger scale of Shah Motel). In my humble opinion, that is.

Take a train - for a relaxing journey. Don't drive, it will only make your blood shoot up he he.

Do call if you happen to be in town. I will email you my phone number.

Zubli,
I know I could count on you? Er anyway, what's your height and weight?

Kata Tak Nak said...

adzaris,
Nak pi la ni, memang dah lama tak pi.

Kata Tak Nak said...

Zawi,
When they go there its not much for sight seeing. They have their sight for something else.

Kata Tak Nak said...

Kerp,
The meals, the teh tarik and most importantly the company.

Kata Tak Nak said...

Bergen,
I have your email but your phone number would come in handy. I'll see about that Shah Motel and its proximity to the proposed rendezvous site which would be decided by Shah, Doc and maybe Mat salo.
Looking forward to meet one of my favourite writer myself.

Kata Tak Nak said...

Doc,
Jangan risau, Aku misti habaq kat hang punya. Probably 2 week of the hols.

Kata Tak Nak said...

Lynmay,
Wa bo lui la. Phuket is a bit expensive for me. maybe KL this time, to meet fellow bloggers.

zorro said...

Kata Tak Nak said...

Zorro,
Will do sir, will do.
