packing and more packing

i am going away to philippines and singapore for a 3 week business trip. rather short notice and i've been working till late these days. but i made some tentative plans on how i can maximise my weekends there, so hopefully all is good. it's 1am now and i am too tired to continue. packing will resume tomorrow.

great things:
- it's going to be a 13hr flight and i am glad i am travelling business class!
- i get to see friends whom i've not seen for a while
- warmer climates (it's snowing in london yesterday! freaking october snow!!)
- 40kgs luggage limit. i can pack 189587584 pairs of shoes and 8968357 shirts
- chauffeur service! so i don't need to lugg everything around!

not so good thing:
- am leaving on friday night, and the secretary still hasn't confirmed my itinery and flights!!!

ok good night...
