Anyway, apparently the grasshopper had a tad much to drink and was telling everyone at the bonfire that he missed his girlfriend. Aww.
I can't stop smiling. :)

Wonder what I'm gonna say to this friend though. 'Hi Uncle! Here's your booze and ciggies. Cheers!'
Anyway, I hope I don't fall sick when I'm there. Been having an on and off sore throat over the weekend. Falling sick on trips suck.

I'm glad to get out of the office though. Always good to be anywhere but there. Lol.
The main highlight of this trip is that I'll be meeting the grasshopper's parents and I'm a little bit nervous about it. Meeting the parents is always A Big Thing. Hehe. I hope it goes well though.
I spent a lot more time with Karen and Darwin- perhaps it was because we were all pretty much on the same wavelength and didn't mind having a few more drinks than the rest. The last time I saw Karen was in 2002 and Darwin, 1991!!!
I also had the chance to spend more time with my brother, which I thought was very nice. I realise that I don't have any more anger towards him, probably part of the growing up process. And it was nice to talk to him like a friend.
The wedding was fabulous. From the gatecrashing in the morning, to the ceremony at lunch. The after wedding party was a hoot and everyone had such a great time. Gotta say it was a lot more fun than my wedding last time. (Nevermind, round 2 will be much better. Wahahahaha.)
Anyway, back to work. It's hard getting back to the grind but necessary, I suppose. We fly to Beijing next week!

My baby is at the appleshop and hopefully they can fix it. So no internet access for me, except for what I can access on my phone (gmail, fb and twitter. Waitaminute, that's all I need. Lol.)
So tempted to get an iPhone.
We had lunch, walked around some malls and museums, had a couple of beers and vodka and just spent the day exploring the city.
One of great things about spending time with them was how easy it was to just chat about everything under the sun, and just feel a certain closeness even though we're not regularly in touch.
Gotta love my family. *grin*
