Hello Luang Prabang

Waking up at 4.30am and then hit Changi Airport by 6am for a flight out is one of the worst possible timings for work trips, next to flying the red-eye or to Africa and the other side of the world. I'm so not a morning person. But I suppose waking up at 6.30am daily in Brunei last week trained the body somewhat.

A double shot of caffeine from Starbucks before I got on the plane didn't help. The moment I slid into the seat, drowsiness overtook. Apparently, there was a toddler who did this high-pitch whine all the way when we landed in Bangkok. Yours truly had ear plugs and completely shut out all sounds and dozed. Hahahah. I slept all the way to Bangkok.

Delays were to be expected. I was muttering under my breath that if the connecting flight was delayed, it better be because they were checking to ensure all luggage had been loaded. The colleagues rolled their eyes at my obsession with the yellow box. Hey, for good reason okay. Those stuff aren't mine!

In spite of the noisy propellers, I conked out all the way from Bangkok to Luang Prabang. And realized I had missed all my meals. Hahaha. Oh well, there's dinner in a bit. Then I want to sleep early tonight. I feel more jetlagged than a London-SIN jaunt! I like this sleepy little town. It doesn't seem to have changed very much. But there're plenty of changes. Major additions, but nothing that has altered the essence of the place. Let's hope I've a chance to explore the surroundings.
