it's good to be home...

....  and with the babies....

as soon as we got home from the airport,
we dashed out to my brother's place to pick up the babies.

the babies were jumping up and down all over somotu when they saw us coming through the door at my brother's place.
both were so excited ....  especially sugar, she made some weird crying sound as if trying to get somotu's attention...  so funny...

one of the very first questions i asked my brother was whether the babies have made any mess.....
he said no....
i am a bit skeptical about that....  cuz my brother and ah king are too nice....  hehehe
i scanned the house quickly and didn't notice any major damage....
so i guess i will just have to believe them!

back to the flight from london to hong kong
it wasn't as smooth as we would want it to be...
first, heathrow was quite a mess...
the gate for departure was not posted until almost 20 mins before the planned take off time.
that said something about the take off time....
when we got to the departure gate....  we waited and waited.... 
20 mins passed, 30 mins passed...

then there was a broadcast.... they said the bridge connecting the departure gate to the plane was not functioning, so we had to take the stairs and there would be delays.  
well, not ideal but not so bad...

but then another 20 mins passed.... nothing happened.
another broadcast came out again, this time, they said half of the toilets on the plane were not functioning!!!!!
and they had to fix it.... everyone went OMG!!!!!!  maybe they could hand out diapers for us all?!

anyway, another 20 mins and finally they said we could board.
but that wasn't the end of it.
we waited on the plane for another 30 mins....  just to find out one of the toilets were still not functioning.  they tried to fix it but couldn't without having to further delay take off.  
so the captain said he has decided to just fly off and asked everyone on the plane to be "kind" to the toilets....
in total, 2 hours of delay.................................

well.... i am glad we finally made it home....
i am going to dive into my bed soon...
i missed my bed....

and tomorrow,
need to go to work...

good night.
