IT IS SO FREAKIN’ TIRING. ):
spent most of the morning packing things into bottle and pouches etcetc, and i still feel that i’m missing so many things. howhowhow? i don’t need anymore clothes, that’s for sure. but i do need a pair of jeans, thinking of getting those denim leggings rather than lugging a super heavy pair around europe. the leggings one will be like a fraction of its jeans counterpart, smaller and easier to wash too (i hope). i feel like there’s so many more things i need to get. i’m afraid that i’ll forget to bring something and have to buy it there (which, might be expensive. meh.)
i shouldn’t pack 4 scarves right? one or two will be enough, but i’m so afraid that it won’t match what i’m wearing for the day. that’s my main concern bringing so many pieces of clothes, that things won’t match on that day. hurhur. madness is madness. i’m trying to bring as many throwable things as possible, like toiletries in bottles that i’ll throw along the way, clothes that may be too big for me so that i can just dump/recycle them as and when i feel like it on the trip. if only europe were like thailand, go there and buy the clothes that you need to wear. hahas. skirts, dresses, how many do i need? i really don’t know. but i substituted a more dressy one for a lesser but still can pass off as somewhat dressy one cause i can wear that as a top as well. double duty. sigh. how siol. i also need “vatican aappropriate” clothes. okay, those denim leggings are a must i guess. how many shorts to bring? how many belts? omg, how many hairbands should i bring?!
see, being a girl on holiday is not easy. yes, i can be the scruffy backpacker type, but on this trip, i want to try to blend in with the local crowd. yeah, i’m asian, kinda hard at times. but i have a half-white face, definitely not very european, but i’ll definitely do a little better than my travel buddies, they look totally asian. lols. which isn’t a bad thing cause i have a love-hate relationship with being called non-asian/half-asian etc. MY MUM THINKS I’M NOT CHINESE CAUSE I DON’T EAT ENOUGH RICE. but mummy, i eat chinese noodles like charkawyteow (omg, must eat that before going to europe) and wanton mee (had it for lunch on saturday) and chaiteowkway (the boy’s fav!). oh, and from now on, like today, after 12noon, NO MORE WESTERN FOOD. which means, no pasta, preferably no fries, no beef steak, no tiramisu, no pizzas, nothing vaguely western. chinese food all the way to make sure i get so sick of it before europe. ohmygawd, BAKCHORMEE. shit, i need to eat the one at lavender before i fly. die also must go and eat.
anyway, back to packing. so i’ll have a luggage, a bag to bring up the plane and a day bag for when i’m there and traveling around. three bags. rawrs. essentially i hope to carry just the luggage and the bag for the plane on the first day. less bags, less hassle. and the day bag shall be in the luggage and be only used as a .. day bag. heh. but i don’t know if that’s going to happen because i see to have a little too many things to pack along (sh*t). how to fit everything into the luggage and make sure it’s less than 20kg?! oh, and i need to learn how to use the lock on the luggage. don’t want to go there and have to figure out how to open it or worse, not be able to open it (horrors!) bringing a few creature comforts from home in the form of vietnamese coffee (okay, not really “from homeland” kind of “home”) and green tea (once again… ) because i feel that once in a while i’ll probably need it like in the middle of the night or when i don’t want to go out and pay for coffee cause the ones they serve are just too fu*king sweet.
i think either fred or perry might have a chance to go to europe with me this time round. i just realized that they might be perfect for being my bring on the plane bag. cause the one that i intended to use probably ain’t going to fit all the misc stuff that i don’t want to put in the luggage (sh*t, if it goes over 20kg, how?!) omg. headache max. what to bring, how to pack? EUROPE, Y U NO EASY TO PACK LIKE BANGKOK? one shirt, one shorts, one bra, one underwear, one sleeping shirt and i’m all packed for bangkok. damn.
okay, i’m going to nap a bit and then go about doing what i have to do today. which seems like everything and nothing at the same time. sigh.
