on emirates for istanbul

i wish the days of flying cattle class are way behind me, especially now that i’ve tasted the comforts of flying via business class. but the fact is that these client sponsored flights are going to be a rare occurence for me, and it’s quite likely this will be the last business class trip i’m going to be on.

*sucks*

in fact, today i accidentally stepped into the economy class area of the plane, and i went *gasp* at the terrible squeeze it looked like compared to the more spacious business class seat i was enjoying.

well it’s not that bad, i did survive in such cramped conditions on a 12h trip to Frankfurt before. Sure, the sleeping pills i took helped me while away time on the 12h trip, but that’s not my point- my point is that it is absolutely possible to fly in such cramped conditions for long periods of time. And i did have a fabulous time in Frankfurt too.

But still, i think it is high time for me to find another job or vocation that will remunerate me better, so that i can myself afford to fly business or even first class (well, why not?) for my own personal trips, not only my work related trips.

oh yes. i have a new mission and goal in life. and who cares if it does sound quite shallow and self-centred.  i’m going to start working hard to attain it immediately.

well, maybe not immediately…maybe tomorrow. afterall i’ve been travelling more than 12 hours today and i’m exhausted.

in pain

i thought that if i drew out the excruciating pain in my shoulder on a piece of paper, that i could draw away the pain from my shoulder for real.

it didn’t work as well as a visit to a massage therapist.

but ah well. it was worth a theraputic try.

the view

nothing.

absolutely nothing compares to the splendid feeling of going for an early morning swim alone in an infinity pool with what must be the most beautiful view of our gorgeous city!

a whole year

it has been a whole year….one whole year since we got hitched last year on 18 April 2009.

i can’t believe how quickly time has flown by. it seriously doesn’t feel like its been a year.

what’s the year been like?

good. i must honestly say. very good.

i think living together takes some getting used to.

it’s also taken some time to get used to the idea that all the cute guys i meet, i can’t do squat with. *grinz*

and that all the flirting i do subconciously can’t lead to anything substantial…rather…can’t lead to anything AT ALL!

but it also means that there’s always someone here for me.

granted we fight. well- just had one major squabble- over the year. that’s not too bad by any standard i think. it’s definitely a good start.

anyhow, since we felt we did so well for the year, we rewarded ourselves with a weekend at the fullerton.

even had a nice in-room dinner, with a pretty view of Marina Bay, the IR, the flyer and the esplanade.

i think that should be our approach from now on. if we behave ourselves and do well, we then get to reward ourselves with something special at the end of the year.

hee…

my bunny

came home to find a special surprise on my bed.

mum had found my lil bunny, that she made for me yonks ago, when i was still a cutie lil pie.
it’s ears were half off, and mum stitched it back up just for me.

i think we’ve thrown out all my old toys, so i’m so pleased that we still have lil bunny. i can’t remember what i called it when i was younger, but i do remember it, and some other special toys, like a huge doll with long lovely hair made out of yarn, who i called Nona- which my mother made for me.

my mother once told me along time ago, that she made me these dolls because she couldn’t afford to buy me the toys that she saw in the shops.

so it’s especially important for me to hang on to lil’bunny- a reminder of our humble beginnings and a reminder of just how much my parents have done for me!

*sniff*
