Latest update from London

Well, I'm back! Finally got myself a brand-spanking-new Dell laptop last week and got connected today. Yooohooo...!!

After our 10 month travel, KL is back at work (he had only 2 days of rest before starting work - poor thing) while I'm still at home bumming around. A proper rest is definitely required after all the travelling we've done ie. lugging our heavy rucksacs, planning our next destination, looking for accomodation for the night. Don't get me wrong. The trip was excellent, had a excellent companion (who did most of the planning! hehehe..), met a lot of people, had lovely experiences, saw lots of places, ate a lot good food and wine - definitely wouldn't have missed it for the world!

That said, it's really nice to be back in the comforts of our home. Oh well, back to reality... now that I'm connected to the internet - I'd better start looking for a job. No excuses this time! ;)

Below is a photo (taken by Noel who's visiting) in the Greenwich Foot Tunnel, which runs under the River Thames and is 1217ft in length and about 50ft deep. It's a pretty touristy place, jam packed with people especially over the weekend and quite often you encounter some idiots who cycle along the tunnel when you are not supposed to. On one end of the tunnel is the Island Garden Park which has a great view of the Royal Observatory and the green GMT line (only visible at night). And on the other end is the Greenwich village. A quaint place - with its weekend markets, plenty of pubs & cafes and a huge park to boast. KL and I usually spend our weekends there when the weather is good, and if we're not playing tennis - he'll be there oogling at the bikini-clad ladies tanning under the sun!
