Back in SG

Category : travel

As I left Berkeley on the BART with Green Day streaming though the iPod Shuffle, I felt a pang of sadness. I'll miss the workshop participants, instructors, the crazy bunch of Singaporean therapists in SF and the chance to concentrate on learning in a group. But that's jut a sign of a good trip.

Sentimental thoughts were soon dismissed by the security screening: shoes off, knee guard off (has a little wire), wallet w/coins inserted deep into bag, mac and cameras out of their covers; get screened, reassemble, move to chairs to put on shoes. And all done in a big rush. Thankfully last September's movement in and out of 8 airports in two weeks trained me well. The security teams have it down pat too so its conducted very smooth. Still I was sweating.

My water bottle leaked!! Thankfully it was only a third full and the Wired magazine I bought picked up most of the moisture. Was still able to read all the pages. I must never use the cycling water bottles on flights!

Going back via Inchon instead of HK meant no wireless on the plane (only on Boeing, not Airbus planes) but an easier time at transit (clearer instructions, directions and less human trafic).

Tiger is going through my laundry now. It's pretty much strewn out n the kitchen floor now. I'll let them have a night of it before washing it all tomorrow.

Dinosaurs! exhibition opening in a few hours so I'm off to bed.
