The Bali Holiday Escape

It is a relief to get news that the Haze situation in Singapore is getting better. I wrote about Coping in the Singapore Haze, but what I haven't shared is that we made an hasty exit from the country soon after the haze peaked last Friday.

Bubbles' eczema was seriously flaring up despite us keeping her at home. After one particularly painful night where I cried along with her, Roboman and I woke up the next morning and booked tickets out. We almost took the kids to Kuala Lumpur, where we have family, but thankfully we did not, as the winds brought the haze up to Malaysia for the next couple of days.

Krabi was our next choice destination, as we have happy memories of holidaying there. Unfortunately we were not able to get seats on flights that we wanted.

So, we left for Bali, the island where Roboman and I honeymooned six years ago. It was wonderful to see the clear, blue skies that greeted us upon arrival.




Thankfully, the worst of Bubbles' eczema has gone, although hers is a chronic one that seems impossible to shake off completely. At least she is in a lot less pain!

Clean air and clear skies.
If you have these where you are, look up to the sky with arms outstretched, take a deep breath, smile, and add two to your count of blessings.

Yes indeed! It felt liberating, and a real relief. Thankful we had a chance to take off like that!

Just happened to chance upon your blog today and saw this article. I totally feel you as my son has eczema problems as well. I was thankful we booked a trip much earlier then to Bangkok and we happened to fly out on the day the haze peaked too. It was such a relief to be out of the hazy days and was definitely better for our lil ones who suffered badly...

Beach holidays are all about relaxing on white pebble beaches backed by lush pine forests and spectacular cliffs. Seen in countless postcards and photos, the bow-shaped stretch of bali beach is perhaps the island’s most famous...Nice post..Thanks to share this here...
