Time with these girls is so precious to me. They can chill in a hot spring and chat about nothing and everything; they can turn a wine run into a fun, lasting, hopefully-never-revealed-if-any-of-us-run-for-office-one-day memory; they can rationalize social issues at 1AM; they can listen to heartbreak and laugh at life’s crazy turns; they are so special and if they’re not in your life, you’re missing out on two of God’s beautiful blessings ❤️.
A number of years ago, a very wet fall brought Morten and Claus into contact with Kitty and I.
The island rivers had been blown out for around 10 days straight, and by chance Kitty and I fished the Big Q (a river we never go to, but it stays in shape due to the dam, so we chanced it). We ended up running into them the first time carrying out our limit of 4 fish. They told us about their struggles on their trip, and we gave them a couple tips and parted ways.
A couple days later I ran into them again with my friend Bruce. Again, we were carrying out limits. We talked for a while, and then I invited them to fish with me the next day. The next day, we absolutely hammered coho. I enjoyed their company, and so invited them on another day before they flew back home. That second day we crushed steelhead on the fly.
Fast forward to now. They still come out every year (they even came out this summer to show their wives our beautiful province). Every year we look forward to fishing with them at least one day on their trip. This year was no different - an awesome day full of wonderful steelhead on the fly.
Next time you're out, chat with a fellow angler on the river - it just might lead to life long friendships, and that's what this sport is all about!
Sharing you the excitements we celebrated last weekend
Monroe Consulting Group’s six Asian country offices gathered at the Visesa Ubud Resort in Bali for the company’s annual rewards retreat over the weekend.
The teams flew into Bali from China, Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand as well as Jakarta for the annual retreat, which is aimed primarily as a celebration of the company’s achievements. It was really fun weekend we shared; from 'Too Cool for School' theme dress up, tubing, quad biking to beautiful gala dinner.
Yes, in this company we never forget to have fun while doing something that matters
This was the view from our amazing room at #liveaquacancun last week. The welcome decoration was made using colored grains of rice! No joke! The turndown service cleaned it all up before bedtime. The #oceanfront room on the 6th floor was breathtaking. #annualtrip ✌️
