~ 14th March 2014 ~It was on a Friday morning that we took off. Thank God I checked our flight tickets. I thought we were going to fly on the the 15th of March 2014. No doubt I'm a very last minute person, I did check all the details and remember to bring our passports along and did a very last minute online check-in.
|The important things when I travel...|
|Our luggage for two|
What's with those three luggage? Three-quarter of the large luggage was filled with nutmegs which I brought over to my family in China. Next time round, I will have to remember to bring 'bah kut teh' mix for them. They were actually asking for durians which I couldn't possibly bring over. So, how much clothing do you need for a month? I only have 10 days of clothing with me so you can see that I totally don't have enough to wear and I need to wash my clothes on a holiday. It's something that I don't do. I depend on my hubby to do the laundry. I have no idea how to operate a washing machine. I'm a pampered lot. Never touch laundry basket before but I did buy one at home.
|Good morning Mr. Sun....|
Hey, Mr. Sun. Fancy seeing you at the airport. It's freaking early to be at the airport. We practically spent hours at the airport waiting for our flights. It has been two months since so I couldn't remember what time we flew off to Kuala Lumpur. But AirAsia, you are so punctual. I love you very much.
|The taste that we missed for a month...|
We had our brunch in Kuala Lumpur's LCCT. Taste of Asia, no doubt it's expensive and not that delicious but let me tell you this, I was having such a bad craving for Malaysian food for the one long month. And it's a mistake to have brunch. Our next meal was dinner in Hong Kong and we were so hungry I was thinking of eating off anything that's edible.
|Cute loaf of cake bread...|
How do you bake such cake or bread? It's from Baker's Cottage in LCCT... also our lunch? Geez... I'm not even sure. You know I love to read whenever I travel alone. This time round, I'm actually bringing mi mama for a warm up trip before she embarks on further journey with longer flying hours. It's mi mama's second flight. Her first flight was from Penang to Kuala Lumpur earlier. I wished I have had a warm up flight before my first flight out straight to Melbourne which I almost went berserk, I was contemplating on kicking the chair in front of me and to punch the person sitting next to me for talking to me for so many hours. I do not like to be confined in a small space and I feel that the seats between AirAsia's plane is really suffocating but I still love AirAsia. This time round, I brought a book along but I don't feel like reading. I just wanted to waste my many hours away. I have my smartphone with me so I was online and posting photos on Facebook every few minutes to kill boredom, or rather, to kill time.
|A marketplace at the airport...|
Flying is no longer a luxury. Taking a flight is just another form of transportation. You spend more hours at the airport rather than on the plane if you're flying domestic. And for this one, we were waiting for our international flight. You know what's inside that black backpack of mine? Shucks. I have a tripod stand with me. My intention of placing my footsteps in other countries with as little things on my back as possible, it went awry. I have a sling bag with me where I stored all our passports and important stuff with me. Another sling bag for the camera and a backpack. Damn! I felt like I was carrying a baby elephant all throughout the journey.
|My poor BUM shoes...|
That's a new pair of BUM shoes alright, at RM2 only after discount and after using up the consolation prize that I won from GAMA departmental store's lucky draw on something. Praise the Lord for that. That's the best shoes to walk around in. No regrets getting this pair. Follow me on my one month's journey... I'll keep on writing whenever I find the time to do so. It's one spectacular journey which didn't go so well here and there but I could safely say that it's a good one till the next trip.
