Two in one...

I haven't seen the sun today...  

Thick and heavy clouds have been hovering over the city, and at times these condensed vapour would decide to drop in drizzle making the surroundings reasonably wet and cool.  From the upper floor of this unit where I'm typing right now, I could see vehicles (including these iconic, double-decker red buses) and a few locals in their coat and under their black umbrella rushing in opposite directions down the road.

Doin' some touristy things at Selby Rd., Penge, London.

My physique's been behaving so strange for the past twenty-eight hours.  My stomach complained as if requesting for some good tucker at dawn, I was terribly sleepy at four PM and felt the need to visit the loo at seven-thirty this evening!  I'm so glad that I don't have to report for my clinical placement today, or review for an exam and finish a thousand-word essay tonight, otherwise, I'll surely find myself lying unconscious on the floor! 

I'M SO THANKFUL TO HAVE safely landed after that thirteen-hour flight from Kuala Lumpur to London yesterday afternoon.  I was honestly starved 'coz Malaysia Airlines served meals and a snack in longer intervals, and the flight attendants assigned at the cabin where I was sitting were not friendly.  Just like the airfare cost this season, it would take thousands of Australian dollar to obtain their smiles.  In fairness, that airbus A380 was impressive, and for the record- it was my first time to fly in a double-decker plane (I was seated on the upper deck).

My ever-supportive aunt, her husband, my cousin and a friend picked me up at Heathrow- I truly appreciate their effort and I felt the sincerity of their gestures... these have made the welcome and accommodation go beyond a seven-star service!

There's neither a palace nor parliament house for me today; but I've had countless red, double-decker buses.  And for me that's enough to prove that this isn't only a dream, this is for real!  It's holiday, finally!
