hello everybody!!!!

thanks for all your well wishes before i fly!

after flying for more than 48 hrs..... (flying plus transiting) i finally reached New Jersey on 13 June 2pm (singapore time 14 June 2am)...

the journey was so jia lat cos our flights from washington to NJ got cancelled twice... twice ok?! due to storm.....

in the end we had to even sleep in the airport overnight. cant get a hotel room cos all the flights are cancelled and so all the hotel near the airport had been taken up... lucky we got goup the blanket from plane so we can use it when we sleep on the chairs in the airport.. lol

from 3 boarding passes to 6 boarding passes. rocks right?

and first time ever, din bathe, din brush my teeth for 48 hours. when i brush my teeth after 48 hrs, first time see that the foam from my mouth are yellowish. yucks!!!!!!
