The Arrival..and the STEAK!

So after the gruelling journey and the drawn out stop-over in Amsterdam (which turned into an impromtu blogging session[/url]), I finally arrived safely back in fair old England.

I was greeted of course, in style with typical beautiful British weather….GREY SKIES AND DRIZZLE..

For the past 5 weeks they’ve been having 30 degree temperatures and mediteranean weather, nothing like me coming back home to turn that to shit.

Was kinda weird to be back and nice at the same time, Malaysia feels more like home now even though I’m more familiar with UK after living here (in different parts) for 26 years.

Nice to see my mom after so long of course too..

I bought her back loads of nuts and stuff and some of the weird Indonesian snacks I picked up on my travels (and a few of Uncle Ho’s favourites, plus a bottle of decent Whiskey for her birthday).

As expected my mom whipped up a storm on the first night…cooking up classic salad with horseradish..

Smoked salmon with lemon garnish on wholegrain bread..

A nice bottle of Wine..

And a glorious rump steak and chips (YEAH PROPER ENGLISH CHIPS NOT SOME SKANKY FRENCH FRIES!).

After the lack of sleep for a day and half and half a bottle of red wine and a lot of chatting, I was ready for bed, so 10pm I crawled off to bed and knocked out til mid-day next day..

The story continues (Watch out for more gratituous pictures of food soon).

BTW Win98 sucks….I had to download a 3MB driver just to install my pen-drive…that’s why I’m so slow blogging, and dial-up, I can’t get my laptop to dial even with an RJ11 converter, because of a stupid cross modem cable or something. Annoying shit. So I’m blogging from an ancient PII-333Mhz I gave to my mom a few year ago. I just installed Firefox though and I gave her MSN (Had to download IE6 first though which took some time..).

    Well the weather only turned shit from last Friday. Looks like it would remain shit for the next few days.
