monday, 7am: we packed up early and went with our travel agent. it was the same scene as yesterday. only this time, there were more people. tourists, locals, they were all around. the airlines were open! woohoo!!

the only problem was, our supposedly 10am flight delayed (again!) for three hours. we hadn't had breakfast and there was no canteen at the airport. we had one loaf of bread for six people. the only thing we were looking forward to was the in-flight meal when we got onboard.

1pm: the plane finally, finally arrived! we boarded up, our "hero", mr. lin, included. but alas, they announced that they will not be serving meals on the flight. instead, they served packets and packets of cookies, and nuts, and kept the drinks coming.

and at last, after three and a half hours, we were back in singapore! never before have we looked forward to walking through changi terminal's halls. we turned on our phones to find a lot of messages from friends and families, worried about us. missed calls, voice messages..i think the chillis will agree with me when i say, those messages made us realize how a lot of people care for us.

we were then off for our first real meal of the day: fried chicken at popeye's! yep, we were definitely back in singapore.

overall, i would have to say, this is one we all will definitely not forget. more than the really beautiful sights we've seen (sights i would recommend to anyone to see at least once in their lifetime), i think this trip made us get to know each other a little bit more: our quirks, our strengths, our attitudes. and it made us appreciate what we have right now, appreciate the friends who genuinely are concerned for us.

so the question is: can i go through that whole experience again? honestly, i wouldn't. but if i had to make another difficult trip, i would definitely want to be with the people i was with in myanmar. let's just hope there's no big cyclone to get caught up in this time. i could do without that.

*going home*
