Perth International Airport. I was there few days ago sending a friend off. Somehow, I do feel like, and wishing badly I was the one going off, flying back to my hometown to be present for the ever-auspicious grand celebration of the year: Chinese New Year. This year, will be my first time being away from home for Chinese New Year. This year, will also be the first time I skip the celebration, for the reason that my Grandmother had just passed away few weeks ago.
Being there at the airport did bring back plenty of memories. Memories of my first moments in Perth when I just landed, and memories of leaving this land with turbulent state of mind having many issues unresolved previously. Those are precious memories that I have securely set aside and tugged into some place within my heart, but they all just come pouring out when I was there walking around the airport. It is amazing how being at places can trace back your steps and force you to relive your past in so many colourful ways.
ICED LATTE with Ice Cream
My friend originally ordered Iced Chocolate, unfortunately we got served with Iced Coffee instead. It could have just been a minor misunderstanding, but we are so used to blaming the coffee house for such common errors. I for one, would vote for just sticking to the drinks and gulp down the icey drinks since I could not be bothered to wait another 15 minutes for my drinks in such ridiculously hot weather of Perth summer.
TOO MUCH CARBON DIOXIDE?
I have heard that Perth International Airport is going to undergo some facelift, and possibly an extensive expansion. It is about blardy time, heck I even think Kuching Airport somehow looks better now after all that renovation going on the past few years.
ELEVATOR or TOILET?
For some really strange reasons, I was convinced that the elevator sign was actually…. the toilet sign.
It will be quite some time before I will fly the unfriendly skies and find my way back to Kuching, my beloved hometown again. As much as my heart aches to be home with my family and friends, I will just have to make do of whats best and what I have here in Perth currently.
To all my beloved readers.. Happy Chinese New Year !!
