I'M HOME!! :D:D:D
Ok, MAJOR fiasco at the airport.
Got up after like 4 hours sleep and showered very quickly in order to get out of the house on time. Thought was gonna be reaaaally late.
Arrived at the airport and scurried to the counter, where I found there was a lack of a queue, as usually it is sardine jam packed into the barriers. :S
The airport chick told me that the flight had been delayed.
Oh the joys of airplane malfunctions.
Ok, so this was just the windscreen wiper but hey you need those..
So i had to wait until 2.45.
I saw mum and dad were having a nice chatty with some people wayyy over on the other side of the airport.
Turns out they're some nice people dad and mum knew.
dad decides (because they're on my flight DUH) that it'd be nice if we all took a drive in our car so we wouldn't be wasting time trying to mooch around the really really boring airport. -_-"
Our car, is away at the Car Hospital, and so we have a nice modern courtesy car, which just so happens to be the SQUISHIEST car in the world.
We could barely fit jerri in when we went to pick her up from school and there were only two people in the back seat!!
imagine fitting 6 fully grown humans and one growing child into this tiny confined space.
What dad was thinking, I had NO idea.
So there we were stuck like sardines in a tin can in this highly squishy car.
Thank god for the wintery weather, if it were summer i think i may have preferred to bore myself to death in the airport!
Went to Foo Gwai chinese restaurant all the way in friggin' Applecross.
Dim sum for lunchh.
About to go to Singapore, and my last meal in Australia is Chinese food. -_-"
Not that I have anything against Chinese food in general, it's just that once you've had a taste of Asia, you can never never never really like the aussiefied version of the taste of Asia.
And I'm not the only one who can verify that! o_O
Moe's brother says he can't stand the chinese food in aussie anymore cos he's been travelling through Asia.. (:
Took mindless pictures of the food but I think I won't post them up because I've already done a post on Foo Gwai once before..
So once we were done, we still had a little more time to kill.
So guess what?
YEP, drive HOME again.
To show them around the house...
Which was in a dreadful state after the panicking in the morning and last minute preparations.
So i don't know why they even bothered.
Crammed in to the car and went back to the airport, where we used the funky complimentary Meal Vouchers to buy coffees and biscuits from Dome.
Went through immigration and xraying, and OH THE SHOCK AND HORROR.
The flight was delayed... AGAIN!
Only by an hour this time.. But STILL.
And after a fruitless attempt at trying to connect to the airport's wireless internet from my lappie (u had to pay hehe) I just ended up going through Picasa and deleting nonsensical photos :D (I was so gonna do a blog post if i'd been able to connect to the internet!!:P)
So finally, got on board and sat down.. Finished reading Little Women and to my utmost shock and horror i found that Beth did NOT die!! :O I was dreading it throughout the whole book because of Joey in Friends!! :O :O :O
Also bought a Women's Weekly mag because it was the cheapest interesting one.. :( Didn't realise it was a NZ one, and I was like this is different...
Watched Priceless on the plane, which was absolutely sweet and beautiful and her outfits were so damn beautiful but very very pricey. (: Also watched The Holiday after tossing up between several other interesting films .. :)
It's absolutely brill but a little slow moving at times.. Jude Law is sooo sweet in the movie just makes me wanna go awwwwww.
Also started to watch the Trop Fest 2007 winners short films.. The first one was so cute and sad, the 2nd one I didn't finish because they turned off the entertainment system!! D: gah.
Got through Immig pretty quickly but had to spend some time waiting for luggage.
And now, I am at home, really should be asleep because I have to wake up heaps early to go and pick up MOE!! :D
And now I am frickin hungry as well. :(
Oh wait, I hear the spaghetti bolg in the fridge.
It calls my name.
