Writer’s Workshop: My Xtra Special Moments of Joy

Spending time with the one I love brings me much joy.  Last weekend  I flew over to where R is working to spend some couple time with him.   It was my special time together with him.

The last time we met up was in February when  we had our Valentine’s Day couple getaway before returning back to Singapore together  to celebrate Chinese New Year with the family.

Joy is ……….

being able to spend time with the one you love. Walking hand in hand basking in the setting sun.  Admiring the view as you feel the sea breeze blowing against you.

Joy is ……….

Soaking in the lights and panoramic view  while having a romantic dinner at the top of a hill.  Taking in the wonderful sight of hundreds of lights dotting landscape. Each of them representing a street light or a building in the valley below.

Joy is ……….

Having a peaceful night sleep without being disturbed by the kids.   This is really something that I have been dreaming off and it was really a  JOY to be able to experience it during this trip.

Joy is ……….

Enjoying myself  playing with bubbles and soaking in a tub  while blowing bubbles like a little girl.  Experiencing the fun that I used to have back then as a teenager.

Joy is ……….

Being a tourist and walking along streets reminiscing how it was back then in the 60s and 70s with shops that still were kept in its original condition selling olden day treats.

Joy is ……….

Celebrating your 14th Wedding anniversary 2 months in advance by making your own unique anniversary present at a jewelry making workshop.  We  made our own rings after selecting the pattern from the samples that we were given and did the engraving  all by ourselves under the supervision of the teacher.

It was certainly a really unique experience and a priceless gift which would be treasured forever.

What is your Joy in the present moment?

  1. I think it’s awesome that you did the engraving by yourselves (well with supervision!). They turned out beautiful.
    I would have been in heaven enjoying all of those things. I’m glad that you got to spend that time with him … And kid free!!

  2. That is one complete romantic tour. You two look perfect together. Wishing you many more years of togetherness.
    Visiting from A-T.
    Stay blessed,
    Ruby
