Back to Africa!

My next business trip takes me back to North Africa. And yes, I'm flying Air France again! For those of you who have been following my blog, I had two previous bad experiences with flights related to France. As if on cue to avoid disappointment to anyone reading, some incident did happen and I'll share them here.

My flight to Algeria was a MEA/AF coach sharing flight connecting at Paris CDG airport. 40 minutes before arrival to airspace around CDG, the pilot announced that the airport will be closed because of the bad weather so our flight will be directed to Paris Orly airport, the nearest airport. Which was a good thing for me because, I forgot to mention, me connecting flight starts from Orly. I don't have to take the airport bus to transfer between airports. Unexpected good new, Yey!

Anyway, my MEA flight landed about an hour after being re-directed to Orly. As the plane lowered to the ground, all the passengers could see clearly that thick, wet fog that enveloped the Orly airport. It must have been impossible to land the plane without instruments! The visibility was about 400 m. Fortunately, the plane made a safe but bumpy landing and everyone clapped.

And that concludes another eventful trip...;P

First Meal

The first meal I cooked by myself. What else but the easiest - spaghetti bolognaise. The pasta were over done, no al dente and a tad soggy. Not familiar with my utensils yet. But as the saying goes, (in hokkien) cannot swim don't blame the swimming trunks for being oversized. Haha....また頑張ります! p(^O^)q

Took a MAS shutter flight back to Singapore while on transit in Kuala Lumpur from Osaka enroute to Beirut on 29 Oct . Spent about 5 days in Singapore.

Big changes to my room but its great to sleep on my old bed and pillow again. Don't know why my pillow in Beirut isn't as comfortable. I should consider shipping my pillows...

There were so many things I planned to do but only managed to accomplished some.

Nevertheless it was good to be back! =)
Great to see Xinyi, my family, her family!
Glad that ex-colleagues are doing fine!
Those that I failed to meet up because of the time span, we'll catch up in 2006!
