Lately we have being having dedicated family time. My husband and I are so busy with work and studies that sometimes we fail to acknowledge that not only do we need to spend quality time together as a couple, but we also need to dedicate quality time together as a family – the four of us. We set down scheduled events and times to so that nothing else gets in the way of our time together.
Our latest family adventure – as we call them – was a trip to a secluded beach on one of many Hong Kong’s islands. We took several modes of transport to get there and a lot of walking because I wasn’t the best guide, but we got there in the end. We realised that this secluded place would also be great in summer – and also not so secluded by then.
The girls no doubt spent time in the water – regardless of the temperature. We had races, made cakes with sand, drew on the trees with stones, and had a picnic. We also walked these stairs to reach the top of a temple that overlooked the beach. We had a lovely day as a family. It is so easy to put aside those that we love the most because we believe they will always be around the next corner. But some times, we need to realise that life doesn’t work that way and we should cherish each other more often.
How do you spend your family time?
