seeing the name on the 1st class honours list... and that name belonged to me... i thought i'm truly blessed

going up north west

taken from the in-flight monitor

it took me 20 miserable hours idling around unfamiliar territory, 15 painful hours on air adjusting to uncomfortable airplane seats and 3 different time zones before reaching destination: london!

close friends and relatives came to the airport to bid farewell. those who cudnt make it, left comforting messages through the net and mobile.

they all played a part in making the 'leaving' a lil harder.
aaron and fab crafted an album packed with memories of the good times shared together,
shell bought goodies for the legendary binges thx to stress and long miserable journeys and sam gave a tearful farewell!

i mishhh my friends already :(

long distance flights can be torturing... you cramp yourself into the puniest of space that they can afford to give and then you 'try' sitting/sleeping/eating on a chair that is so stiff and hard that doesnt support your posture or even fit your size...

great if you have considerate passengers in front, at the back and nex to you...
bad if the passenger behind the seat nex to you is a loud annoying sri lankan who prolly finds it hard to shut up.
worst if the passenger right behind you happened to be a long legged australian who had a habit of slotting and placing his feet onto your arm-rest because he didnt have enuff space for his legs which were prolly a mile long.
irritating if the sri lankan had lots of stories to tell throughout the entire flight and torturing if the feet behind you didnt back down... even after being hit (deliberately) by the inflight pillow, the inflight remote control and the inflight magazine...

the aussie dude apologised when he caught me lining up for the lavatory and even had the nerves to ask whether i mind.
well i said... NO i didnt mind but i wud have if he had smelly feet.
he prolly was lookin for a different reply... that response left him in shocked 4 a while before he went on to the next question.

and to have proof, i took a pic which eva called 'the sea cucumber pic'...referring the brown socks to the said delicacy... hmph -_____-"

eva made a wonderful long distance companion though.... well mayb bcuz she was a lot like me... she didnt annoyed me with stories like the fella behind her and her feet were kept within a reasonable distance from me. she slept most of the time... and woke up only when food was served... and after spending 36 hours together.... we finally went our separate ways... she to essex and me to a 3 hrs bus ride down to ware.

here's a pic of the glooomy brit weather for every1 to c...
and oh i think i'm suffering from jetlag too

as of today, i'm 7 hours behind you guys back in m'sia ;(
