Funny how being overseas kind of warps time. And I mean even nearby overseas.
I’ve only been away for a little over 24 hours but it feels like days. Maybe because every time I go overseas, I’m stoned from lack of sleep.
My computer is still not fixed so I’m still using Fluffy. I don’t really like using Fluffy to blog cos I need my dual screen to work my pictures and get a better sense of the progression of my text.
You know the pink border I use for my pictures? They look white on Fluffy. So, like, if the colours on my photos look funny, I won’t be able to tell.
Anyway, this has been a crazy trip.
Nanny Wen and I had a lot of fun getting each other lost.
Both of us have the same bad habit of not paying attention to where we go because we like to follow people.
I don’t know about her but, for me, it’s because I’m always lost in my own thoughts and can’t be bothered with something as mundane as directions.
Yesterday, at Changi Airport, after we went through the departure checkpoint, we started searching for a place to sit down and have breakfast.
As we walked, we talked, and didn’t really notice where we were walking. We kind of started following each other. But I think I was following her more because breakfast was her idea.
We came upon an escalator and went down it. Probably because the escalator just happened to be there.
And we found ourselves at the arrival checkpoint.
After some oh shits and embarrassed giggles, we turned around to go back up the escalator, but the escalator was only downward travelling!
More oh shits.
I made a face at her and said, “I don’t want to travel with you anymore!”
She reminded me that I say that all the time but I still continue to travel with her.
I suppose it’s nice to have someone to strangle once in a while.
But she was very sweet and emptied a soft-boiled egg for me today so I forgive her.
Anyway, after a bit of panic, we found a staircase that we could go back up on. Wen had to clumsily lug her suitcase up the long flight of steps. Haha. I was carrying a giant tote bag on my shoulder so it wasn’t that bad.
Hmm… I took too many photos today in Kuching and they won’t all fit in one post cos it’ll take me like 10 hours to write.
Will talk about our adventure at Kenny Sia‘s new fitness centre in a separate post!
