Mother's Day in Palembang

WOW! This is my second Mother's Day already! Last year, Richard took me out for a delicious lunch and gave me 3 massage vouchers. This year, I got a Hair Spa and 6 donuts. A Hair Spa is what they call some hair mask and a scalp massage here. Supposedly, Richard has planned for my real birthday and Mother's Day 'celebrations' during our break in Malaysia. I bet its going to be all about food :)

Not so long ago, I remember reading a comment somebody else's blog that mentioned budget airlines that charge for each piece of baggage checked in. At that time, I remember feeling thankful that while AirAsia is strict with the baggage weight, they didn't charge for each bag.

I guess AirAsia has gotten wise. They're charging. Not a lot but I've still packed all of our clothes into the one bag. I've also managed to squeeze two soft hand carry bags in there in anticipation of our return trip after lots of shopping.

You know what? We're all packed and ready to go but the plane isn't leaving for another 18 hours. Thats how much we're looking forward to this holiday. I'm having trouble keeping focused enough for this post.

I'll be back here again in a week. 'Till then, have a great week everyone!

Being all about food can be a good thing (sometimes).
