It’s 2:05 in the morning (though my blog time stamp is not set well 😐 ) and I haven’t slept yet. I tried to get at least an hour of sleep, but I really can’t. I tried to pack all the things that I’ll be needing for the trip, but I kept on going back to the monitor.
I am used to last minute packing when I travel, but I know that this specific trip is extra special and somewhat a first for me. Actually, I still can’t believe up to this second that I’m about to go to Singapore to attend the Nuffnang Blog Awards.
For quite sometime, my grandparents and some of my nyok friends were forcing me to renew my passport, which expired last March 1999 (more than ten years ago!). The only country I went to is Hongkong in 1994 and I was just six or seven years old that time. I remember riding the Cathay Pacific plane and dreamt of having my own hotel exclusive for kids and an airline wherein the pilot and the stewardess are all kids. Ok, that’s a big headache if it came true.
Now I am 22 and just twelve hours ago, I claimed my renewed passport at the DFA office. I am quite amused with the fast service of DFA. Though I look terribly sleepy in my passport photo, I am more than happy to finally have it in my hands.
