End of the road

It’s always a bitter sweet thing when a holiday comes to an end. In this particular case there was more of a bitter tinge. Flight from Narita to KL was delayed 3 hours and resulted in a missed flight connection to Johor and a 4 hour wait to sort out the luggages and hotel transfer. 4 hours later and here I am waiting for the flight to home. Quite put off by Air Asia X and the way the ground crew dealt with the whole incident. Will I use them again? Doubtful.

It gets dark

It’s been a good 18 years since I last made home in a country with 4 seasons. Not counting the past winter sojourns to Korea to visit the in laws and to allow my dear wife to reconnect with home, I’m still amazed at how dark it gets at 5pm in winter.

Oh and cat cafes are weird.

A brief year end escape to Japan

First and only holiday for 2014 and lots to see, lots to eat and lots to do.

Shinkansen from Kyoto to Tokyo

Did Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto this time around and gained weight in the process notwithstanding the walks. I wonder why…
