Exhumed Again!

Feels like the plane from Singapore to London landed, door opened, and I fell out in a faceplant. Sitting between 2 large people in the economy section is no joke, especially when one of them appears to have taken a very effective sleeping pill before the flight.

Back by popular demand for another round of the seminar thing! Would be happy(ier) if I was not travelling on a day which happens to be my son's birthday AND Mother's Day as well. Spent most of the day lurching from point A to point B trying to get my brain to engage so that I could complete seminar prep. No luck so far.

Stared at what seems like a hundred pieces of identical luggage coming off the conveyor belt whilst telling myself for the millionth time, Jesus Christ why can't you buy luggage that looks a teeny bit different from everyone else's? From now on, you are only allowed to buy bright green luggage. Because trying to identify your black canvass drag-on from all the others coming off the same flight after 12 hours on the plane is just plain stupid. Then right at that moment, I saw a black canvass drag-on lying on the conveyor belt covered with dog hair. Right! That's mine!

Lunch was 3 bites of a very delicious salt roast beef sandwich (with mustard and rocket leaves) and 2 gulps of very nice apple juice. S$18. The trick is to be very careful when opening the apple juice. One clumsy twist of the cap and that's S$3 all over your coat and hands, with only 1 gulp left in the bottle to mingle with your tears of impotent rage and frustration.

Erghhh. Tired, sleepy. Must work another 5 hours. Really there is no rest for the wicked.

you're crazy. ah well. whilst you're there, might as well pop over to mothercare for some stuff for R and harvey nic's for some ferragamos to replace them damn old 'uns! (cheaper I promise)plus probably can claim tax at airport coz the one receipt would more than sufficiently qualify you for a refund. oh, and of course, dun forget to say hi to the nose for moi :)

just remember you have to show them your ferragomo when you claim your tax at then airport so don't pack it in the luggage..

did it ever occur to them that most people will have packed their purchases into their luggage?

did it ever occur to them that with the stupid regulation that each passenger is only allowed one carry on bag (laptop case is counted as one!) that you won't be able to carry your purchases in a hand carry bag?

oh yeah - they did. #$%^&*(

enjoy london.... and dress warm. my colleague told me it will snow on monday and tuesday... burrrrrrrrrrr

Didn't shop much. Did go to Cecil Street and check out the bookshops, and went to Selfridge's for the salt beef sammich. Thought about Ferragamos all the way back home, esp. after seeing the latest shoes in the adverts.

The carry on rule is a bitch, esp. the taking off shoe put shoe on conveyor belt bit. I bet the customs officers draw lots for that.

Mother's day is in March lah.
