doing my duty

Some of you would have seen the "poster" I appeared on FB for the Jom Balik Undi campaign. Long before it appeared, I was in a dilemma whether I could actually fly back. Price of flight being one, and ability to actually go back to Malaysia was another.

I prayed that both would be settled by God, and I'd take it as a sign to go back to vote.

After a few weeks of searching, thinking and strategising, I finally got very reasonable tickets, and managed to work out an arrangement with my boss despite the hectic work schedule.

My flight ticket back was about 1/3 of the usual costs, nevermind it's the airline that I still can't see eye to eye with! I was still working back in Malaysia, but still managed to take some time off to run personal errands and spend time with loved ones.

Yes, so this was my first time flying AirAsia X. And that's the food I get for a no-frills airline. No complains there, though of course what you actually get when you open the aluminium lid is really quite different from what's displayed on the menu. I had been craving for nasi lemak, but surely this was not the best way to satisfy my craving~!

One of the reason my flight was so cheap was a late night flight, which enabled me to arrive on voting day itself. Here you see my badly done manicure job.

With my groggy self from lack of sleep on the plane, and then having to wait 2 hours under the sweltering tropical sun, and with no food nor water to keep me happy, I was relieved I did my duty as a Malaysian citizen.

Lots of events happened on that day, and many days following that, as you can read from the news. I was kinda caught up with it while I was in Malaysia. My brother almost wanted to go for the rally in the Kelana Jaya stadium!

And, this is how my bathroom looked like when I came back to the house! My mum had warned me the house looked like a war zone.

My parents decided to do some renovation work because of some piping problems and to solve a host of other issues in the house. It was really messy, dusty and noisy during the day. Pity my dad who's at home most of the day. Pity my mum who has to clean up the house everyday.

Since I had to help my parents during this period, and having to still work, I didn't to really go out. Good excuse to just bum around I think! But of course, I managed to catch up with the 7D4 babes :)
