Happy to be home. This is the nth time that I’m saying this, but it just hasn’t felt better to be home. This trip wore me out too much I think, that at this point I am physically as well as mentally drained, with not much time for anything else even though I do squeeze out the time on some days to blog because perhaps that helps me to feel a little bit more alive.
Pardon my incoherency. Haven’t been sleeping much at all in the whole of the last 2 weeks, and add on to that, bad quality of sleep on most nights, with the icing of the cake today when I sat through a 5.5-hour meeting, before hurrying to the airport. A touch of irony… the cab ride took me all of 1.5 hours, possibly one of the longest that I have ever been, then it was on to a flight that took about half of that time, then ending with another cab ride that took half the time of the flight. It’s good that the time keeps getting halved that way, or maybe I am just easily amused and seeking some sort of dry humour.
The flight was full of people travelling to Singapore, maybe also back from business trips to KL, because many seemed like they were part of that crowd, with some in business attire and carrying the tell-tale laptop bag, myself included except that since it was casual Friday, I didn’t really care to be in formal business wear even if I was supposed to be involved in a closing presentation meeting. My colleague wore a suit, but I couldn’t give 2 hoots.
So when the plane touched down, there was that mad rush of people to the arrival gates and for the taxi line. It was quite a terrible queue that was forming at T2, something I hadn’t seen in a long, long time. But it moves pretty fast though, so within 20 minutes I was zipping away from the airport towards home in a nice, comfortable cab.
I’m actually really tired now but yet still want to write. About nothing much in particular, I just thought I’d yak a bit here, and post a couple of pictures, possibly the ones I liked the best from the trip.
Last Sunday was an extremely hot day, but from the cool confines of Kinokuniya in KLCC, there was this really nice view of a fountain surrounded lush greenery with a backdrop of buildings in the perimeter. It was so hot outside that I thought I would melt in the heat, so I was really thankful for the airconditioning.
Then whilst I was in a cab that was stuck in a line waiting to get out of the mall area, I managed this picture of the Petronas twin towers. I didn’t get the chance to go up to the bridge but they still look really grand and magnificent from where I was, bathed in the bright sunlight, even if they probably just look like 2 steel structures gleaming in the sun. But at night, from a distance, they, together with the KL Tower, make a dazzling picture with their iridescence.
