Coming to an end..

So my trip is almost coming to an end, 3 weeks seems like an awfully short time when you are having fun!

I thought it’d seem like a longgggg break, I guess life in KL is too hectic sometimes – it’s a good feeling to have nothing to do, to be away from the Internet and have nowhere to rush to.

It’s so much more relaxing driving here as everyone is so civilized, thankfully the weather has been pretty nice too.

Been down to Minehead in Somerset for some seaside and awesome food cooked by my aunt, been up Malvern Hills, been up to Birmingham a couple of times (not my favourite place), been up to Liverpool and even further up to Blackpool!

Had a pretty varied trip really, seen a good portion of UK.

I’m not looking forwards to the 20 odd hour flight back…leaving here on 26th afternoon and reaching back on 27th afternoon!

Emirates service has definitely gone down, the movies are on demand though and you still have a personal screen which is bigger, the food is still pretty good but the service is gone, they hardly bring drinks around, the stewardesses seem to not want to serve you, you can press the service bell and get no response.

Will pop down to Worcester town to get some stuff this afternoon, it’s weird getting used to the fact that the shops close at 5.30pm – can’t imagine how I managed with that when I lived here.

Sometimes England seems so backwards.

I’ve had a great time though, wish I had another couple of weeks to catch a premiership match, head to the lake district, maybe over to Dublin too.

So many things I want to see still, lots of Europe I haven’t seen either. Oh well plenty more years to go, just have to save up the moolah.

Back to KL soon though, back to work, back to Starbucks, back to parties, back to lots of sweating.

    The Ugly Malaysian demands to be able to step out of his door at any time of the day or night and get a decent, sit-down meal nearby. You’re one already!

    Post trip blues…yeah, I can understand how you feel. Time flies when you’re having fun.

    I’ve always wondered – does Emirates serve alcohol on board? Since it’s UAE based and all that, being an Islamic country.

    i’ve had heineken and champagne on emirates b4..

    And I’m having blues cause I will be leaving Malaysia in a few days already. Gosh.. Not another year in Russia. 2 months of summer holidays just went by so quickly. 🙁

    Welcome back to Malaysia by the way!

    BTW HB I think they do serve alcoholic drinks. The last time I took Emirates to Moscow, I remembered having some Merlot on board.

    julian: Yah closed on Sunday and Monday was bank holiday so they all closed at 4pm too..pubs close at 11pm yah and 10.30pm on Sundays.

    Dabido: Yah, sounds about the same.

    Kuzco: Yah! Been missing Badminton.

    Huai Bin: Yah they do, free flow of all kinds of booze apart from Champagne.

    Chris H: Yah, can’t imagine how crap it must be in Winter now, glad I’m not there to see it. Was good to catch up aye, will try and get up for longer next time.

    dreamguidesme: Oh well, you should enjoy your time there, explore the country, see all the important sites. Russia has a great history and culture.
