臺北2015: 四月四友大出走

[Start: 2:55am]

Dear non-existent readers,

I am writing on this abandoned blog because I have nothing better to do on a four-hour and twenty-minute flight.

I am currently on board Scoot’s TZ202 from Singapore to Taipei. With me are my besties – Boonie, Cheryl and Wendy. It’s our second group trip together after Bangkok about 4 years ago. Actually, we can consider this our third getaway since we did a one-day road trip to Johor Bahru in February earlier this year.

Having been to Taipei many times since 2008 (I kinda lost count and my memory’s not really working at 3am), I’m the obvious planner and guide for my besties. I’m not sure if that’s a wise choice at all since my past visits have always been free and easy, like REALLY FREE AND EASY in that I just wake up each day (sometimes at noon) then decide where I really wanna go. That said, I endeavor to make this trip a pleasant and memorable one for my besties, and actually spent some time listing out a number of places I would want to bring them to. I eventually realize there are too many food places in the list and one can only spend that much time eating, so I have no idea how the trip is going to turn out.

Let’s hope they do not have high expectations of me.

My only comfort is that this is Boonie and Wendy’s first time to Taipei, and Cheryl’s second (her first without family and a kid in tow). This means it shouldn’t be too difficult to keep them “fresh” during this six-day trip. *fingers crossed*

[Turbulence; Motion sickness developing; Pause typing.]

Plane is stable. Hate how I am prone to motion sickness. It means I can’t read or watch movies on a plane, in the car or MRT. Annoying. And I can’t sleep on a plane either. Even when I was on China Airlines’ business class in 2014 returning from Taipei to Singapore, I couldn’t sleep soundly. Maybe I should get a prescription for sleeping pills. Wonder if my GP would be anal about writing out such prescription. Hmm.

And I digress.

And there is nothing much else I wanna blog about right now.

Let’s just hope the trip will turn out alright.

Maybe I can blog throughout the trip. We’ll see

Till next time.

xoxo
Austin
