4th august 2007 (Saturday)
finally, the anticipated day has arrived. i was supposed to be on the 1215hrs mh069 flight from kota kinabalu to kuala lumpur. but after julia kindly dropped me off at the airport about an hour early for check-in, i found out that my flight was delayed
til 1320hrs. *sigh*
ordered a cup of tea and ironically, read “waiting” by ha jin (waiting, got it?)
arrived at kuala lumpur around 1545hrs and waited til 1830hrs for my mh790 flight to phuket. while on transit, had a hotdog, walked around, took spastic pics of self, and tried to read *yawn*
arrived at phuket international airport around 1930hrs, and patiently waited for maya to arrive from london via bangkok. developed runny nose. people watched while i waited. fun.
when maya arrived (wisely wrapped in warm clothings), we exited the arrival hall and was promptly greeted by a friendly tour guide from the tour agency. we then loaded our luggages onto the vehicle, and was chauffeured to khao lak, our final destination, about 1.5hrs’ drive towards north of phuket *phew*
finally, checked in to le meridien khao lak resort & spa
at around 2200hrs. we rewarded ourselves with room service of green curry and tom yam goong, as well as pad thai. needless to say, i had a relatively early night (can’t say the same for my jet-lagged friend).
