After Church, I was still packing my luggage. I, the girl who’s famous of last-minute things. *smile* I can’t travel light. Always be prepared for ‘just in case’. It’s winter in Sydney. Of course 10C is nothing compared to -40C (with wind chill factor) in Toronto. But, a year in hot and humid Jakarta needs to be taken into consideration.
SQ159 Jakarta – Singapore (14:25-17:00) Seat: 45H
Got random check, wuuuh. I guess people have problem with announcement of seating numbers. Or, the number of handbags they can carry into the cabin. They just don’t care. Or, maybe it’s me who have problem with people who don’t follow the rules. For example the good looking man seating beside me. I was so sleepy —
Arrived on time in Singapore. I called my sister. She told me that my two cute ‘unyil’ were playing with water downstairs. He, he,… my two ‘unyil’ are my niece Mandy, and my nephew Matthew. I told my sister that I bought congklak for them, and will bring it when I visit them next month.
Then, I just relaxed, browsed the Internet, SMSed my friends, browsed the shops at Changi Terminal 2,… and sipped my black coffee.
SQ221 Singapore-Sydney (20:30-5:55 the next day) Seat: 47H
The plane was full. I watched several movies — Failure to Launch (Chrissy must love it so much, he, he,…), Pink Panther (not as funny and amusing as the French one), Firewall (action-packed movie with the old but handsome Harrison Ford), and Ice Age: The Meltdown. I love Ice Age *smile* so much! Lucu sekali bo!
I went through immigration and custom without hassle. Checked-in at Sofitel Hotel around 7 in the morning. Unpacked my things. Had a hot shower. Ate some crackers. And, I soon drifted off…
Woke up at around noon. The Reception said that Jim didn’t arrive yet — so I went out for lunch by myself. Took a long walk to Union Station, Wynnford, George Street. Had Japanese food for lunch while looking at the passers-by. I love it — it reminds me of Toronto. Hmmm… I miss Toronto so much. Called my mom that I arrived safely here.
After I bought some fruits and bottled water, I went back to the Hotel. Had many works to finish, problems in the office — but, well, I’d like to enjoy this moment.
Talked briefly to Jim after dinner. I still have to make reports — while making this blog, checking my e-mails, and watching TV *smile*
