3 trips

Oh dear, I have 3 invitations to go overseas :

1) Backpacking and roughing it out in Bangkok-Chiang Rai-Chiang Mai, during Deepavali-Raya break. Adventure trip includes train rides, budget airflight, various hotel stays, Chao Phraya River cruise, shopping in local markets, and perhaps the Loy Krathong Festival.

2) Missions trip with church team to the Philippines, middle of October. Plans to follow up on last year's trip, visit villages and churches in the mountain area in the island of Mindanao. Might include "Soles for Souls" project for the poor children with no shoes.

3) Reunion cum missions cum sightseeing with x-MMUCFers to Myanmar, after Christmas. Itinerary not confirmed, but most likely handling children/youth's programme. Most planning done by missions agency, original plan includes Cambodia and Vietnam as well.

My leaves are not as limited as some, but my boss has this strange (though practical) ruling that we're not supposed to take long leaves when it's not "our festival". If money wasn't an issue, I'd have enough leaves to go for all THREE trips! But I just came back from Bali not too long ago, and I can't be seen holidaying so often, you know :>
