Vacation to Far East: Day00 Airports

I know all of you have been waiting too eargerly for the snaps as well as the detailed blog on my vacation. There are just tooooooooo many photos, from 6-7 memory sticks, all unsorted. Sorting them day-wise itself took me well over 4-5 hours of non-stop work. In all, I had been to Malaysia (Genting), Singapore, Pattaya and Bangkok.

Now, I'm uploading them selectively day-wise, in all for 10 days. Hope you enjoy reading my story and seeing the photos. I'll start small, so will talk only about Airports I visited on Day00!

27 Nov - 28 Nov 2006 Bangkok and Malaysia Airports.

In all we were 12 people, 6 elders and 6 youngsters, all family friends.

(L-R: Mom, Alekha, Daddy, Neil, Mamta Aunty, Godfather, Zebu, Vabs, Satara's Collector, Kanchan Aunty)

It was my first time out of India, so was very excited to fly, and see places outside my comfort zone. I was speechless the moment I steped down on the Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport. If this were to be compared to a 5-start hotel, our own Sahar Airport is not even close to roadside dhaba!!! About the airpot, one can bloody keep walking on and on and the airport would still refuse to show a dead end!!! I believe you can spend the whole of 3-4 days just exploring this wonderful place. So huge it is that 76 flights can operate every hour!!! It has two 5-storey car park buildings with a combined capacity of 5,000 cars. Man, it really has to be HUGE! After all, Size Does Matter ;-)

Here, have a look at my album of Day-00.

You can even visit this album, see which is faster for you.

Top 10 things to do when your ISP is down

Was bored to death, thought of posting some fun stuff...

1. Open the curtains and see if anything has changed over the past 2 years.
2. Re-introduce yourself to your immediate family.
3. Is there really something else to do?
4. Run in circles, screaming hysterically about the end of the world.
5. Reset Modem: repeat.
6. Create your own IM bot to converse with.
7. Open up the old ping'ing shell script.
8. take a shower and scrape off mould/fern from body.
9. Call up and check if your friends are still alive.
10. Find a better ISP, you idiot!!!

Want to add more? Be my guest, then!

I was on a 10-day vacation to the far east: Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. Being first real vacation in 4+ years, it was AWESOME! Away from computers (real tough!!!), coding, debugging, review meetings, and such other mundane worldly activities, it was a welcome break. Will post in more detail soon, this post is just to indicate that I am still alive and kicking asses harder than ever!
