Is it just this pc or has my Friendster profile reverted back to original template? The black with purple stars background won't appear. What about if you view it?

Just got back from Singapore this morning where I started my Christmas shopping already. And then I went to church today after, like, two months. :) Will be in Sydney tomorrow with Mica. Yey!

Anyway "Kota" means mountain so Kota Kinabalu is Mount Kinabalu. But looking out from my hotel window, I see the waters. There's something that looks like an underdeveloped Baywalk out here. My seniors are probably there tonight having dinner or something (of course I didn't join them, they have money and I don't) but I went outside earlier all by myself. I think it's an advantage that I don't look--and dress--so uncommon coz at least I could go by myself and not receive strange stares nor attract threats.
Oh, now I remember what I did earlier. I went to the gym which is like five machines plus a few more cardio vasculars. Afterwards I boiled myself in soaring temperatures at the sauna room, I was all red after haha. I should probably buy a new pair of swimwear so that I could go swimming at hotel pools (gosh do I love swimming!) instead o' sweating it out in the gym.
Aw I'm hungry again; I've finished my dinner and there's nothing but Kitkat, milk, peanuts and Coke Light in my fridge. Woow finally a good movie's coming on. Coyote Ugly!
P.S. I've added a few more good people on my links list. Pay them a visit, it's worth it. :)

We were on our way back to Seoul from Phnom Penh; with the same crew, and the same plane. But (1) we had only twenty-five passengers for economy class. According to our manual, one cabin crew is to fifty passengers so imagine how easy it was for the three of us (me and my galley-mates) to do everything for them. (2) My galleymates were the best so far. Neither of them were so into the seniority thing nor were they easily angered at simple mistakes. They actually appreciate simple favors that I do. (3) Our cabin manager let us all sleep one hour each. Usually, you don't sleep in a five-hour flight. We take rests during long flights like US or Sydney or London.
And lastly, (4) what better way to end a flight but to see a wonderful sunrise! The transition of colors from dark blue to fire orange, wow! You never (or hardly) get to see how wonderful the sunrise skies are above the clouds. :) My senior took pictures of it and hopefully she'll be able to send it to me. Hayy. Great friday the 13th.

Rumors had it that next year Asiana'd be opening Paris flights; it got me so excited coz of course I wanna see Europe, especially France, especially Paris! But during my flight to Phnom Penh (I'm here at the moment) I chatted with my senior who informed me that I should prolly (naks, Niko style) kiss my Paris dreams goodbye.
She said that yes, Asiana did try to negotiate to have Paris flights but unfortunately, the French government and Korean Air's ties are so strong so they kinda shooed us away. So why such an agreement? Coz Korean Air bought so many Airbus aircrafts. Yun na yun. Aw =(

+ Day after grad we moved to Seokyo Hotel, bigger rooms, better facilities, but no PCs inside the rooms so that explains why I don't update that much.
+ My first flight was Manila, quick turn. Which is soo sad 'coz not only is Manila flight one of the hardest flights, but at the same time, it breaks your heart that you're in the Philippines and yet you can't go home.
+ Second flight was Hong Kong, with 12hours layover. I saw--nothing! We stayed at the airport hotel and I tried to "see" HK, but when I looked outside the hotel, I figured it must be far from downtown. It's like I'm in a separate country or something. Arizona-like.
+ Third flight was Ho Chi Minh, my very first layover flight. Me and Kat went to Saigon Square to "shop" but I window-shopped coz I still don't have the money. Just bought two woodcarvings of a Vietnamese woman: one for home and the other for my half-Vietnamese tita.
+ Then on October 1 I had Clark flight--going home! I surprised my family when I showed up at their bedroom doors. Haha.
+ Stayed in Manila for my 8days-straight days off. Did a looot of things, including going to Bulacan to see my maternal grandparents, bonding with highschool friends thru a DVD marathon (finally I got to see The Devil Wears Prada!), bonding with Yana on her mommy's family day at school, joined the fun at my cousin Rom's fifth birthday (the most fun children's party ever) and a lot lot more.
+ Was able to convince my mom to let me borrow this laptop I'm using now and we had wifi card installed too! Yey!
+ And now here I am, back in Seoul. Rejuvenated and preparing myself for the next three weeks of flights. I missed blogging!
