Sometimes, I just get so tired. Tired of all the things happening and not happening around me. I know this sounds very selfish and immature. But there are just times when I feel like doing and having whatever I want without any qualms. Like taking the day off without having the permission of anyone. Or going travelling to exotic places without worrying about where the money is going to come from. Or having the pleasure of seeing people I love whenever I want.

This morning, I felt exactly that.

I know it's Monday and I probably have a withdrawal syndrome from the weekend. But the urge to stay in bed was much, much stronger today. It was like I cannot accept the fact that today is a workday and I have to see these people at work (who sometimes I do not bear any love for) for the next 5 days of my life. And it doesn't stop there either. It just goes on and on and on...

My parents are planning on going on vacation trips this year. The upcoming one is to Krabi and they've asked me to join them. And then they're heading to the UK and Paris in May in time for Roland Garros. Buffy and BIL are going with them and as they booked the tickets, I was thinking, "Why the hell aren't I going?!".

So I've compensated with myself that I will do what I can to go to Krabi and also make sure that Perth 2010 emerges. I think I need a nice long break from work. Long enough for me to miss work, perhaps. I also think I need to leave this current workplace and move on to "greener" pastures. Somewhere where it's "fresher" with newer faces and problems.

Anyhow, that's the wish for March 2010 - Second week and I'm already feeling drained. Meh!

The Time I was Flying Blue with KLM

About two months ago I came back from a magnificent travel experience to the UK and Paris. I fully intend to write all about it as it was my very first solo trip ever! But this post is not about that per se. I plan to break down the solo trip experience so that it will not be too heavy in one posting. 
Anyway, I just wanted to share a little bit about my experience travelling for the first time with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines as they were my chosen carrier to take me on this wonderful journey. 
From the get go, I would say it was not exactly all smooth flowing. My own unfamiliarity and inexperience with them probably contributed to the little bumps along the way but thankfully their customer service team is well trained and equipped to help iron out any hurdles or uncertainties that I faced. 
The booking was unique in its own right. The selection of flight dates, times and class was all standard. Then when it came to payment was when I discovered the first uniqueness, or rather the second …

Getting out of Blogging Retirement - Take 2

I've already had some food in my system, and while it's probably on its way to full digestion now, let's try putting in a half decent blog post.

Like I said, after a long, I believe 2-year hiatus from blogging, I had really thought I would let blogging die a natural death and stop just like that. But as things occur in my life, I find myself itching to write again.
Like today. 
First, during lunch time. 
One of my colleagues, let's call her Kay, told us that Hard Rock Cafe has a pretty good lunch set menu. It comes with a salad, main course and dessert, and a refillable drink for the price of a normal main course. So of course we jumped to it. The moment we got to HRC, it was almost a full house! We were lucky not to have to wait in a queue. Those people probably thought to take advantage of the lunch set too. 
Anyway, there were four main courses offered in the lunch set menu; Chicken Marinara, Chicken Pasta, Hamburger and Grilled Fish. I opted for the Chicken Marina…

Getting out of Blogging Retirement - Take 1

Hello Blogosphere!!
It is I, back from an unintended retirement from the blogging world. Actually, I never did intend to hang my blogging shoes as I did my dancing shoes. But after what seems like (a) lack of time due to work, and (b) lack of inspiration to write about things without sounding like I'm whining (phew... that was a long one), I decided that after a year of hiatus, it is high time to put some thoughts to ... what do you call this?... not paper... blank blog page? Well just type out some thoughts.
So here we go. 
Starting now.
Right. Now.
Ok. Any moment now. .

. . . .
Maybe I need to eat first. Haha!
