Flying Viva to Sydney

Posted by Kimberly on August 29, 2007

I’ve got about four hours before I head off to the airport for Sydney. It’s only for four days but you can’t imagine how much I’ve been looking forward to this trip.

I just home I don’t get too home-sick when I’m there because it will make it all the harder to leave when the time comes.

I’ve pretty much got myself in the holiday mood but almost had a wall with not getting paid before I left. Thankfully that’s sorted out and I can try not to spend what very little we earn 🙂

Amazingly no one here seems to want anything but I’m expecting a couple of last minute sms’s so let’s see! I’m definitely required to bring back some Tim Tams and Natural Confectionery Company jellies.

With Viva Macau’s soooo generous 20kg limit (including hand luggage) I’m going to struggle on my way back. Hell, I’m struggling on my way over and I’m hardly taking anything…

I had a very early 9am interview today at Morton’s Steakhouse (apparently fabulously popular in the US and Asia) whom I’d never heard of but realised why when I looked at the menu prices…the gentlemen were extremely friendly and approachable nonetheless and I walked away with a signed copy of their cook book and a free dinner there for when I return (which I’ll be taking one of my work mates to as well. I think it’s Sara’s or Nigel’s turn…)

I’m looking forward to the wedding mind you. While it will be a happy day all around, it also means that I don’t have to worry so much about my mum anymore. She’s not the best person to be left on her own and this way I know there’s someone to look out for her when I’m not there.

Anyway, gotta go and enjoy my holiday rather than be in front of a computer (again!) Will write about my experiences next week 🙂
