My son grabbed the side seat (as if anybody is competing with him?) and found it most interesting to stare at the bar (hopefully not at the alcohol) while I settled myself comfortably in the seat where the handsome Frank Shin met JinYoung hitching a ride in the hot desert of Las Vegas. Haha, am I too pathetic to link everything I do to a scene in HRH's drama? What's next, raise a few pets in my backyard like a blue dragon, a white tiger, a red phoenix and a turtle snake?? :)
Wow, it's off to a great start, but I guess the payback time came next. As if the airline people haven't looked outside the window the whole day, after we have all boarded and settled ourselves snuggly for this dreaded 13 hours-long flight, they announced that they had to prepare the aircraft's computer and engine for the weather and the wings had to be de-iced, so we were forced to breathe 3 more hours of recycled oxygen. Haha luckily we were very well prepared, my son and I were ready with our portable DVD player fully charged and our precious TWSSG DVDs, we began our happy flight :)
Boy, we must have watched for a long time. By the time I woke up, I looked up at he monitor on the plane. WHAT?! Why were they showing a map of Siberia, what documentary was this? I rubbed my eyes and looked again. No, that was an aircraft on the map over the Arctic Ocean heading towards Siberia?? Am I in an 'Indiana Jones' movie or what, did someone just hijacked the plane to Siberia?? No no no, it dawned on me that it is the route of this direct fight - over Alaska crossing the Arctic Ocean, headed into Siberia and towards Japan! The world is round, not flat; Siberia is actually directly north of Sapporo, Japan. Gee, I should really brushed up on my world geography.
We were overjoyed to see my hubby, and my son's daddy of course. It seemed like we had been apart for sooooo long. No matter how much I adore BYJ (and RSW hehe), there is just no one in the world who can replace your family and your love. Back in the hotel, mu hubby handed me a package and said smilingly, "I think you'll like this". I received it with a very questionable look but I know he wanted to show his appreciation for me handling the household matters while he's away. I opened up expecting it to be another art book, but voila, look what I've got!
Yes, this is Dong Gam - the music CD that BYJ graced the cover :
The side of the Dong Gam box with other Korean hunks :
I love this picture on the address book :
Another look at the box :
Yes, I know this is way back in 2005/6 but I am surprised that hubby even remembers BYJ's face and got this for me. Of course I do not expect him to know the latest and greatest of my idol's work and which one I don't have yet. Why, haha, because since I am in pseudo-Baeland myself, I can very well accomplish that task of filling up what is missing in my BYJ cabinet :) Oh, I love Japan!
Please take care, my dearest sisters. I will try to write soon. I love and miss you all very much :)
