Home Sweet Home

It’s nearly a week since I’ve been back in the Paradise Isle, and slowly getting used to the heat. Even cut my hair to a close shave to accommodate the process.

The journey back was relatively ok, not great, but then again, thankfully no major incidents either, with all these plane crashes happening. Two in one day, minutes of each other and on the opposite sides of the world. Freaky. (One in the US and another in Japan, the FedEx plane, that happened today – for those who live in a well :) )The luggage was a bit overweight, but thankfully, the airline turned a blind eye. Unfortunately the first leg of the trip, Toronto to Dubai was not that great. My friend and I got stuck with the middle seats of the middle aisle. Oh what fun! To add to it, I got the pleasure of sitting next to a snoring fat guy. Believe me, thirteen hours of that is NOT fun. Luckily managed to catch some zzz’s halfway through.

Since we had an eight hour transit in Dubai, we got entry visas, so managed to take some sights in Dubai as well. It would have been much better if it had been day time, but then again, beggars can’t be choosers can they? However, was blown away by the sights though, can’t imagine what it’s like during light. In my opinion, Dubai is much more hip than Toronto. Also went to the Mall of the Emirates, and that is one amazing place. I haven’t seen anything like that in Toronto. One word to sum up Dubai imo is Luxurious.

After couple of hours of sight seeing it was back in a plane to little ole SL. That was much better since we got window seats. Landed at CMB at 8 and then it was straight home. Actually managed to stay up for a couple of hours before crashing on the bed, he he.

I’ve been catching up with the friends since I got back. Come to think of it, I’ve been out of the house for the most of it since getting back. But then again, I missed hanging out with the gang. Went to Jo Jo’s and got hammered on Saturday night :)

I’m back at the office and its back to the daily grind again. One thing I’m not looking forward to is the daily commute in busses.

Cheers y’all, and have a good week ahead.
