I was supposed to be leaving Penang for London this afternoon for my graduation ceremony on Wednesday. But last Friday morning I woke up from my sleep all sweaty and anxious.
I had been dreaming of Roast Duck at Four Seasons in London and I couldn't take it. I had lived 3 months without it and it was getting too long.
I picked up the phone straight away and called my travel agent.
"Miss Wong, I need a flight to the UK SOON".
Miss Wong, a little startled by me calling her so early in the morning calmly and professionally replied
"Yes Mr Tiah, we've already confirmed you on the Monday morning flight to London."
I brought myself together and tried to be calm.
"Maybe you don't understand me Miss Wong. I need to get there SOON and SOON is NOT NEXT Monday. Get me the earliest flight possible! Even if it's today!!"
She promised me that she would do her best to find the earliest flight she could and she hung up.
A couple of days and a 12 hour flight later....
Guess where I am...
Here's a hint.. where I am, there is a huge huge wheel thingy called the London Eye. Ah Yes... Four Seasons Duck.. here I come. Of course, after I deliver this little bag of mooncakes I brought all the way from Singapore to the Queen of England at Buckingham Palace.
