TOUCH DOWN BUENOS AIRES!

25 hours after departing KL (and 1-hour stop overs in Joburg and Cape Town) MH201 finally landed at Ezeiza Ministro Pistarini in Buenos Aires at 216PM, February 13, 2008.

The sky was a perfect blue and the sun was all out. The sweltering heat embraced me as soon as I exited the airport. The exact opposite case when I first touched down in Ezeiza back in June 2007. Back then, it was raining and chilly, the vibe was totally dark and gloomy.

I wasn't able to send out blog entries in Joburg and Cape Town as I couldn't get any internet access in the transit areas.

I've checked in at the Kempinski Park Plaza Hotel just a few minutes ago and logged-in immediately.

Funny thing happened while I was at the checking in at the front desk. Radio music was playing at the front-desk and it was the instrumental version of Jose Mari Chan's "Beautiful Girl" which made me smile - NOT THAT I THOUGHT THE SONG WAS FOR ME! I meant what are the odds of that sort of stuff happening a continent away. I remember a Thai taxi driver telling me that the song played on the radio station station was Christian Bautista's.

TO ALL THE FILIPINO/FIL-XXX(fill in nationality here), can anyone confirm if Beautiful Girl was an OPM (Original Pilipino Music) or was it lifted from somehwere else which may explain why I got to listen to it one bright and sunny February afternoon in Buenos Aires.

Time for a power nap. Meeting my Fil-Am friend Ed and his Argentine friends later for dinner and drinks.
