So Ben from MSL Travel called me today, and he told me that the weight limit for our bags to Glasgow is now 46kg, cause they managed to bincang bincang with British Airways.
The thing is, I dont know what do I do with the 46kg's. I'm not planning to bring any food or anything; it's only a year anyway. I can manage a year without belacan n dried mushrooms, kari ke, what ke. So what's the point of you going overseas if you're gonna eat the same food that you eat back home? So much for broadening your horizons. Haha. My mom used to mail me lots of those dry condiments when I was studying in Perth. Fu chok la.. anchovies la.. dried shitake la.. rempah kari la.. rempah rendang la.. masak hitam la. A lot ok! And u know what, I ended up chucking out most of the things that she sent me at the end of the year when I had to leave. No need lah. Going back to Malaysia to work anyway. I can eat all the Malaysian food that I want then. But having said that, of course I will miss miding belacan, daun rampu (cucumber leaves.. it's an Iban thing) and my kacang botol. I LOVE those stuff.
But, a year only bah!!
I havent started with the packing yet. You know lah, best procrastinator ever. Hmm.. Come to think of it, I can bring more shoes now that I have 46kg's....
Anyway, I'm going to Jogjakarta this Saturday to visit my sister. There are a lot of trinkets there I heard, I'm gonna have a fun time weh. Balik from there, we'll be heading straight away to our longhouse to celebrate Gawai. Lepas tu.. time for me to leave. Oh well, everyone will only be a phone call, sms n an email away. And my godbro, Osbert will be there too. There's my friend/distant cousin Andin as well.. and Stella maybe.. Michelle.. and Sheena. And Crispin will be just an ocean away (haha, as if it's that near). So, kiranya, I have family what there. Ok la that. And of course, I will have 100 over of my batchmates with me. So.. it wont be that bad ba rite? Besides, not like I'm not used to being far away from home. *convincing myself*
Dont. Want. To. Pack!
