No rest for the wicked

i'm back in britain. in fact, i'm writing this on the 1715 to leeds from st. pancras, while listening to ayumi hamasaki. looks like i will be following the same behaviour pattern that i'd adapt on arrival from kl. for the next 4 weeks or so, it'll be asian music/vcd's/dvd's for entertainment, all the way. i will also find myself complaining of everything that is british. like the weather (thankfully london is sunny on arrival today, although a little on the humid side). i will probably have nasi goreng as pack lunch, eschewing the usual paninis or sarnies at the hospital deli.

i was suppose to take the coach to victoria, from where i will wait for the 1800 to sheffield. no effin' way, man. i wanna be home asap. so, i have repeated the seventy-odd quid heathrow express-london cab-midlane mainline combo back home. i rather be home earlier than stinge on cheaper travel and long waits at coach stations. the coach would also take 4 freakin' hours to reach sheffield. i reiterate, no effin' way!

i need a holiday. to recover from a holiday. hehe.

what do you expect? my unplanned daily itinerary was packed, every single day. OU lah. midvalley lah. low yat lah. family and friends' dinner invites lah. serves me right to go home for a mere 9 days, but then, i needed the break. and i just can't be arsed to go to a foreign country where i wouldn't know what to do anyway. kl is easy. hehe. family is important. europe and america will always be there (unless wwIII starts next week). i will visit these places one day, no rush!

since the holiday was a short one, i realised that i:
-hadn't had a big mac/mc chicken/mc nugget meal
-didn't have time to go to taiping and makan the m. jabardeen combat kuey teow at the casual market
-didn't go to klcc
-didn't makan pau or jalan bellamy ikan bakar
-missed a seven collar t shirt/love me butch gig
-hadn't taken enough pics with my finepix digicam
-didn't manage to buy the ghost in the shell: stand alone complex dvd set

in this short vacation, i also:
-discovered the joys of ayumi hamasaki
-got my dad to join us for a movie at the tgv multiplex
-bought more books (yup, after that permaidani entry)
-got to eat kuih sagu with santan and gula melaka (thanks to my aunt!) last night

however, the biggest disappointment for me was the fact that butterfingers still hasn't released selamat tinggal dunia/urusan seri paduka baginda. BILA OI?

anyway, despite all that, my batteries should be fully recharged. exams coming up, so it'll be work harder than usual.

which also means, i will blog less frequently from this point onwards. i'll do a weekly entry, though, knowing how addictive blogging can be.

so, till then. catch ya later.
