As I mentioned few weeks ago, I’m moving to UK…the city of Canterbury to be exact (somewhere at the southeast of England). Before that I had to endure a long tiring flight Brunei to UK with a short stopover at Dubai.
NOTE: Recalling from memory. And times are in Brunei time (+8 GMT)
7pm (22/9/08) – Take off. Little did I know that it’s going to be one long boring flight.
10pm – got bored and started to try out the airline’s Sky Show with their selection of inflight movies. I chose to watch Kung Fu Panda despite having seen it many times. I think it’s one of the best animation to come out in recent years (aside from Wall E but that’s more of a sci fi epic while this one’s just plain fun) and they’re making a sequel which would definitely not be as good as the first one but I would still watch it
11pm – Fell asleep while watching Indiana Jones & the Kingdom of Crystal Skull.
5am – Fell asleep again.
7am – Woke up for awhile…listen to songs…fell asleep again
11am – Woke up and decides to spend the last two hours watching Indiana Jones 4 again and this time managed to finish it. I enjoyed the movie more actually and I thought it was a perfect ending to the series. NO Shia Labeouf/Mutt Williams movie please.
2pm/7am UK time – Arrived at London. Managed to avoid some dogs at the custom. Those were big dogs!
NOTE: Recalling from memory. And times are now in UK time (GMT)
10pm/11pm (23/9/08) – Arrived at Brunei Hall. We quickly decided not to stay and just go straight to Canterbury and get it over with.
12pm/1pm – Went around London (small section of of it). Tried the ‘tube’. It rained (creating this dull gloomy windy environment)
2pm/3pm – Hired a van (but he arrived with a bus!) to take us to Canterbury. Long winding journey out of London.
5pm/6pm – Arrived at Canterbury. Got lost for awhile which was also a good opportunity to see the city.
7pm – An international Student Dinner night. I went there and mingle around.
People: So how’s your flight?
Me: Boring, it was a long one about 16-17 hours
People: Shit! Really
Me: Yeah.. yeah *drinks*
People: What time did you arrive?
Me: umm..this morning
People: SHIT REALLY!
People: Don’t you feel Jetlagged
Me: Jetlagged? kinda…but I’m not really that exhausted
People: So you arrived here at canterbury at what time?
Me: An hour ago
People: Really?! Wow you don’t look tired?
Me: I don’t? Guess I’m a good actor then
Padahal mata ngantuk mendangar urang belgium ani ceta2. Pasal Politik lagi!!
10pm – Went to sleep. Fuck it.
