Okay here's one thing about my family.
We're a very very close knit family so much that if anyone anywhere in the world gets married, the whole family takes leave (almost compulsory) and flies over to wherever that is to attend the wedding.
One of my cousins who live on the other side of the world is getting married this Saturday so.... Wednesday this week I flew to Singapore to catch a transit flight to that country.
Since I was in Singapore for a night for transit, the airline was nice enough to give me my own room to stay for the night.
The room is pretty nice with everything you can ask for in a hotel room.
A nice comfy bed that is huge for one person.
and a great room safe to keep whatever little valuables I have.
But there's one thing that annoyed me a little.
The internet connection there costs S$0.50 per minute. Grr... I really hate it when hotels charge you a bomb just to use the internet especially when it's almost essential for someone like me to stay connected.
No I don't go online to surf Facebook or watch YouTube videos... I go online because I have to catch up on my work. That's one great thing about working in a Dotcom, you can bring your work anywhere with you... as long as there is reasonable internet access.
I mean it's okay if you charge say RM15 bucks a day or something but most of the time it goes to at least RM50 per day or more.
Anyway, the next morning I got myself to Changi airport for my long flight.
The flight took me 16 hours... plus 1 hour transit time in Seoul but soon enough I got there.
So guess where I am everybody!!!Haha I'm in .... Vancouver, Canada for my cousin's wedding.
This is my first time in Canada and I just have to say that... the flight is just wayyyy too long! When are they gonna invent teleportation dammit!
I've gotten used to flying say 13 hours when I was studying in London but 15 hours plus an hour transit in Seoul is just too much for me to take.
Seeing how nice the place is though, I guess it's worth it. The weather is just wonderful here.
It's Summer now and it's not too hot or anything, in fact when you walk outside on the street it feels like you're walking around in an air conditioned room.Nice and cooling. Ahhh!
And here's the best thing.
I'm staying in this nice little apartment in the city that is not too expensive.
There's a nice living room.And a nice bedroom too.
And here's the best part.... there's Wi-Fi throughout the apartment and it's... FREE!!!
THAT'S THE WAY IT SHOULD BE!!!
Will blog more about Vancouver in the coming days when I get to see more. I just got here today. Ahh so tired now. Wanna sleep.
Catch you guys later!
