I would like to tell you a story of how I got to fly 5 times in a week. That is seriously the most flight I’ve ever taken in such a short time frame.
Let me list down all the flights I’ve taken:
19th January – KL to Miri
20th January – Miri to Kuching
21st January – Kuching to KL
25th January – KL – Kota kinabalu
26th January – Kota Kinabalu – KL
All these are because I have to accompany my mom to those places because she has to present a training course for GST. She was coy about it, but I know that she wanted somebody to accompany her while she was there. Before this, she had a colleague to present the training together, but this time she will be teaching alone. So, being a good daughter, I reluctantly followed along.
It doesn’t help matters when I was there I was having heavy period. Just my luck, right. While I was in Miri and Kuching was the worst. The flight from Miri to Kuching was the worst. I was bleeding heavily, and my upper back mysteriously was in pain. It hurt when I swallow and whenever I took a deep breath.
The next day while in Kuching, my period had lightened a bit and I was able to relax for a bit. It was raining the whole day, so I just sit in my hotel room, reading and watching TV.
I would actually just stay in the hotel room for Miri and Kuching. I was quite bored. But in Kota Kinabalu, I joined the training, because my mom said it would be interesting for me to learn about the GST that will be implemented in Malaysia in April. Shockingly it was quite fun! I met 2 clerks who knows me from when I was in IT Department. They were quite cheeky and fun. The class was energetic, and people were inquisitive and asked a lot of questions.
All in all, I was quite thankful for these trips, even though we couldn’t go sight seeing at all. I gained 3 new friends from Deloitte, who conducted the training with my mom. I got closer to finish the Survivor book by Chuck P. And enough airplane rides for me for the time being…
