Blogging from LAX

Howdy dear readers!

Today we are flying back to Dubai via Emirates airline. Little C is asleep and Hubby has found a fellow petrol head to converse with. The guy is heading to UAE for a six months job probation and interested about vehicle export rates as he wants to bring his Toyota 4runner to Dubai. The SUV model is presently not available in the Emirates. When things got too technical for me to comprehend, I excused myself and dashed to the nearest Pinkberry shop. Here I am now blogging amidst the LAX chaos.

We have an hour to go yet before boarding. It will be a 16-hour flying time – bless my legs – back to our resident country. I don’t want to talk how I feel or else I will be wailing right here on the carpeted floor hihihih.

We’ve been traveling for the past 24 days and has kept a diary. I am itching to publish them but I wish to spice em up with photos. If Picasa cooperates, our 3rd day of travel will go live later today.

Ah spring. It is always my favourite season to travel! Four years ago, on the very same date, we were in Rome. Let nostalgia begin….
