3D 3N in KL

April 27, 2007

I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited to go to KL. Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever been excited to go to KL.

Maybe I’m spoilt but I hardly consider any place that does not have at least 10 degrees’ temperature difference from here a true vacation destination. The boyfriend can vouch for my disdain at suggestions of Bangkok or Malacca or Bintan, or Hong Kong in the summer. Unless of course, the destination has sand and camels and massive triangular blocks sticking out of the sand. 🙂

But definitely not another city as humid and overpopulated as Singapore. Bleah.

Which is very telling: I must really be deprived! Classic case of “anywhere but here”.

My first one day of leave I am filing since, well, ever. And already I am thinking it’s impossible to get away. Because of this, I had to work till ridiculously late the whole of last week and am now worrying about that one Monday when I wouldn’t be around– I think I’m seriously becoming *gasp* a workaholic!

But nevertheless, it’s barely a weekend trip and I am oh so excited. I’m excited to finally get to visit what I believe is the only batting cage in the region–Ok, you may think I’m a bit batty (lame pun, like, totally intended) if I admit this is the whole trip was planned entirely around going to hit some balls. I’m excited to hopefully get some wardrobe supplements (cheaply, preferably) from KL’s newest mall–my closet supplies for work are running dangerously low. I’m excited to try out the new fancy coach with an inbuilt massage chair, apparently. I’m excited to stay in the hotel which I scoured online for a pretty sweet price, if I may say so myself.

Most importantly, I’m excited to finally get to spend some quality time with the boyfriend after more than two months of not seeing him. Yep, I bullied him into skipping a week of school and flying 5 hours back from pretty (and cool) Perth to do this with me. 😀

Maybe I will take more pix this time around!

Catching up on some reading.

Everyone else is so poetic, so abstract.

I am.

I haven’t been very verbose, nor triggerhappy, these days.

Maybe it’s disillusionment and plain cynicism that comes with growing older, and with work.

Looking at Lydia and her new Sony beaut (snagged from the IT fair), I remember the thrill of just pointing and snapping. Just about everything then seemed worthwhile that I would want to capture for eternity.

I would blog endlessly about nothing in particular, as if the world were the least bit interested in my daily drips and drabs.

These days, I say things like “when I was younger”, and “these days”…

Maybe I ought to start documenting before even this phase is gone forever.

5 weeks down…

April 1, 2007

And ten more to go?!

I was so distraught once we really got down to calculating. This waiting seems neverending, the respite we count down to so meaningless and fleeting.

Oh, wouldn’t it be nice?
