It was started with Cynthia and I discussing where to go for dinner while we were driving away from the airport. In the end, I have suggested to eat Indian Prata at Jalan Kayu. That was one of the worst decisions I have made. I should have recalled my friend telling me that the government occasionally closes down the shops over there after the report of food poisoning incidents. Not only the meal was pricey (closed to $18 for two of us), I had to spend an hour in the bathroom the next morning. I was so tired that I just withered onto my bed. And due to my problem with my stomach, we have spent most of the weekend at home. To make it up to Cynthia, I took her out for a new dinning place: Kintaro Sushi. She loved the place. Let’s see if my stomach can take it.
With the time difference (9 hr), it is kind of hard to say what is yesterday. But technically, it was last morning when we have to get up early and drove to the airport. Colin has been quiet since – May 4 – and he didn’t try to make any conversation at all. It is very strange to me and I kept on thinking that maybe it’s me who has done something wrong. On the other hand, maybe it is his personal reason. Just that what a pity that the holiday ended that way.
Quite a long and adventurous travel for me as I have to fly from LA to Chicago and from Chicago to Paris. Really surprised that my luggage can be automatically transferred through as the first trip was American Airline and the second one is Air France. (Although at the end, the Air France part got confused and my luggage was the last one to come out.) Watched Pulp Fiction a few times on board. And the air hostess was drop dead sweet with a very nice smile.
Got back to my beloved hotel and my old room will not be ready until tomorrow. Went for a haircut and my favourite barber was not around and I ended up with the one who can’t speak English at all. Lucky Eric came out at last and it wasn’t too late.
Called up Sophie and she even wanted me to come to work in the late afternoon. Crazy.
Called up Mohamed and we had an Indian food.
Tomorrow – back to work!!
Before I stop, I do receive 74 new mails today. Wow!
Woke up late this afternoon, as expected Grace had left a phone message for me. Went out to a café shop and as usual, ordered a cup of tea and a piece of cake. The waitress was so nice to me and she gave me another little piece of cake. How nice! Just outside CNIT, a girl sold me one drawing that according to her, it is drawn by someone from the art school. Actually I was heading for the FNAC and I just remember that I didn’t go there at all.
Grace called me out and I reach her hotel at 7:30. One of them was watching a show so I waited in Grace’s room. Her room was a mess. Real mess.
And four of us dined in an Indian restaurant (nice romantic restaurant) and Grace and I ended up walking to the Louvre. Paris is so charming at night.
