Finally I am HOME!!
I managed to touch down at KLIA at 8.50 p.m. on 8 May 2008 , after being away for 26 days (since 13 April 2008). Luckily, the project went very smooth with not hitches. My team and I managed to "get out" before the actual scheduled return date by 4 days. Every one of us were eager to come home. Wifes are waiting, daughters are waiting, boyfriends are waiting and family are waiting for our return.
It was raining on the morning of 8 May and the rain did not stopped even till 11.50 a.m. when we decided to take the cab to the airport. The flight was at 3.50 p.m. but flying Business Class, we can enjoy the executive lounge where we can dine and sit comfortability from the people who are traveling on Economy class. Unless the last time I was in Shanghai, we have to check into the new Terminal 2 of Pudong Airport. I was surprised when I landed at Pudong on 13 April where I could not see many people around. I only realized that I touched down at Terminal 2. Similarly, flying back to KL also require us to check in at Terminal 2.
The plane took off as scheduled and we managed to land on time.
Reaching home, I am like Santa Claus (as described by my daughter, Carrie) opening up my bags (yes, from 2 bags going to Shanghai, I returned with 5 bags) bringing out all the stuff that I have bought for the family. You can see the details of the stuff that I bought from Carrie's blog.
I have been busy today sorting out my things like getting my Tag Heuer serviced (the battery is going to die), went for a hair cut and went to the aquarium shop to get some stuff for the fishes. After that, most of time is spend in front of the PC sorting our my photos. You can see photos at http://www. flickr.com/photos/kokkuen.
