My own personal Cloud Nine

Just the other day, I was driving home from work. It had been a difficult day in the office and traffic was at a standstill.
I found my mind wandering over the happenings of the day and thinking about my coming quiet time.

A short vacation perhaps.
Flying away to somewhere nice.
A journey through the cloud in an aeroplane.
So close that I might reach out and touch it.
Fluffy, white cloud.
In my car?

My car was full of fluffy white cloud pouring out of the aircon! So it is with the car doctor now: aircon rosak.

New Year, Now Here!

Happy, Happy New 2007 to everyone!

The ends of the year are especially busy times at work and I am looking forward to some quiet time later, hopefully not too much later.

My first resolution: get new glasses. I was at a party and saw Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, or thought I did....
