It wasnt as if this was my first time flying. No longer did i had to pack my luggage till i had to seat on it to shut, no longer were there yells if i had packed all my clothes, no longer was there any emotions running as i stepped across to the boarding gate. Although i had a couple of holidays this year which did not involve going off to study of any sorts, this holiday seemed a bit different.
This was another trip to Adelaide, a place that i had study at for a good 3 years, well technically if you count the number of days, its only 2 years because you have a good 4 months of holidays which i would die to spend it in Malaysia. This was a trip that was pretty much, buy my ticket, ask my friend if i could bum at his place and off i went. No aims in life, no targets to achieve, no purpose at all, it was just going back to a place to experience deja vu.
The feeling of going for such a holiday felt weird. It was a out of comfort zone trip. Firstly, i didnt bring my towel and toothbrush. Secondly, i couldnt bum in my brother's place and i had to bum at another friend's place. Thirdly, i would be arriving at an early sunday 8am morning. Whatever was going to happen, i had 6 hours to plan for a flawless beginning. It appeared not, either way it had to involve lots of walking from one place to another. As i left my sleepy brain to think about it, another mini accident happened. My glasses dropped from my jacket and the poor air stewardess (thank god for her weight!) stepped on my glasses but it didnt break. Just distorted its shape and made me look like some scientist who hadnt seen sunlight in centuries.
When the actual morning came, my brother woke up, took his towel and toothbrush, showered and had breakfast. I realised why i wanted to take this trip. I wanted to sip my caffe latte and experience the spring breeze. Dreaming of nothing and letting my mind wonder as usual. (Review of breakfast coming soon, i promise).
So it was, one day gone and 12 hours slept. It appeared everything has settled down before i realise my gracious host had to leave for Argentina before i fly back to Malaysia. Thank goodness for the internet and a slightly loose budget, i booked myself a hotel for the last two nights. Lets hope no more surprises, my heart cant take it anymore.
Going to see if i can register for a free poker tournament later at 6pm. Adelaide readers! Where are you? Can you please call me out and take me out for some food tasting??
