Have a break and zoom off into La La Land…


The weather has been unbearably hot for the past few days. Seriously, I wonder how much hotter can it become. I once dreamt that a glass dome covered the whole of Singapore and filled it with cool air. Imagine that happening and no more haze and no more crazy hot weather… but of course that also meant that air planes might have some troubles coming in and out.

During class today, I suddenly thought of the days when I was in the States. Along the west coast, we went to many beaches: white fine sand, bikini babes, crystal clear water and warm climate. The waves were great for surfing and we had a great time. How I wish I am there now.

A more realistic holiday in the short term could be a trip to Hong Kong especially during Winter time. It would be great to visit the Disneyland there and immerse myself in the cool weather.

Really feels like having a break…
