Werk sux.

KL was fun. So much fun that i'm still recuperating and it's been four days. To my KL buddies that i didn't get to meet up with, sowwy. It was tight, tight schedule: nights were partying, daylight was spent sleeping/shopping/eating every two hours (you know who you are, oink).

Since i came back, it's been work work work. In fact, it's a bloody Saturday afternoon and i'm still here. Every night i've had to pack my work home and after dinner, i'm back in front of the computer. The reason i've had to put in extra hours is because i have to clear my work before i leave for Japan this coming Sunday. Yes people, i am headed to the Land of The Rising Sun! Before anyone gets too excited, it's for work. We are chaperoning two Sabahan athletes who will be participating in the Mt. Fuji Climbathon. Basically, the first six days we will be at Fuji-Yoshida - Kind of like the Genting or Kundasang of Japan. I'm glad it's summer though, i'm not a fan of the cold, trust me. The last two days will be spent sightseeing Tokyo and making courtesy calls to the Tourism Malaysia and MAS people there. Good thing there are direct flights from KK to Tokyo (six hours) and i was told that the trip from Narita Airport to Fuji-Yoshida is another six hours by bus. Jet-lag anyone?

Anyway, more on my Japan trip once i come back. For now, I'm still chasing time and trying to wrap things up in the office. For the record, my trip to KL with my chicitas wasn't that good - IT WAS GREAT! Check out mia's and yolanda's blog for further details and photographic evidence. I too learned a few things (in addition to Yo's list):

1. We know the lyrics to 'We Are Proud to Be Malaysians' which we gladly sang on the LRT. Stares, shmares.

2. Puke residue should be washed off IMMEDIATELY or else you will reek, much to the dismay of those sleeping next to you all night. heh. sorry.

3. When a diners requests for you to wipe the table at a restaurant , it's rude to reply "I know that". (i still think we should have bitch-slapped her).

4. Do not rest heavy menus against glass ashtrays as they tend to crash into a million pieces when they slide off the table. ehem.

5. Five girls, one bathroom: Never a good idea.

6. Carol is fascinated with crotch sizes.

7. Watching Malay movies on TV3 is more entertaining than you think (esp if produced circa 1988)

8. After experiencing three delays, I propose a new tagline for Air Asia : "Now Everybody Can Wait"

9. It's not easy being Miss Valedictorian 1998. I swear.
