Love the sun reflecting off the Pacific Ocean

Wow, my trip in China was something I'll never forget ... but as I look out the Hong Kong Oasis airline and fly over Northern-Mid-End of Vancouver Island I am suddenly reminded of the everlasting beauty and tranquility of Canada, my birth place!  I must be getting home-sick for as much as I want to return to Asia, I now look forward to my new venture into Western Canada with my sister and her family who are keen on showing me various places around their hometown ...

I got off the HK Oasis airline and boy oh boy I was sweating ... so much to carry ... I wish there was service in the Vancouver Airport to carry my 2 luggage pieces, coat, purse, camera, and a very large photo (I bought in Xi'an, China) to my next airline .

Vancouver here I come! .. Love the shadow of the Oasis HK airline Boeing 747-400 ... The biggest plane I've ever flown and it won't be the last!
.. the halls are so long ... I did ask for help, but unless you had some injury etc. they didn't provide a 'ride' ... it certainly not like the Guangzhou Airport (I was spoiled) ... pull out $20RmB and you get 'full-service' and you get to relax as a driver takes you to your check-in ... I can only wish now

Oh well, I am safe in Canada though I'm still far away from my family; we reside in Ontario ... but when they heard my voice, though still far away, they still felt secure in knowing I've returned safely from overseas!

I saw Tim Horton's, couldn't find Starbucks, got in line with everything I had and finally sat down for a second then I looked at my watched and surprisingly my flight was leaving in 15minutes ... great, I now have to bring everthing along with a small coffee ... so I had to quickly suck the coffee back and ran ... you think I was sweating when I first got off the plane ... no comparison to now, why didn't I just buy a bottle of water ... (hmmm:addicted to caffeine)

I'm finally at the Air Jazz seats waiting to walk onto this my 10th flight of this huge trip to China ... awwwwwww ... we get to walk outside and climb a few steps onto this little airline ... I'm now board and cooling off, the weather outside is freezing, 'bring-it-on' LOL ... now I'm looking forward to meeting my sister who is waiting for me to arrive at the Victoria, BC airport ... I haven't seen her for over 2 years!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

I visited Vancouver island twice. First visit on my own back in '94. Second time in 2000 when I visited my sister who was living on Thetys Island then. Thank you for bringing back those memories :)
