New Year Countdown

So my journey goes. Left Moscow for London on 31st departed at 4.55pm and reached 6.15pm Heathrow airport. My dearie Melissa was already there with David, her bf to fetch me when I finally checked out at 7.30pm. Tee Cheng had already planned for us to eat steamboat at her house. But my plan was to go to the London Eye and watch the display of fireworks. In the end we cancelled her plan and decided to go see FIREWORKS. Yaya :)

My luggages were heavy so we left it at Mel's crib, I got onto a quick shower, met my long lost friend Gurvin who is going to join me for my Euro trip. And left.

Cheeky Gurvin

We quickly headed back home after that fearing that the tube will be congested again. But on the happier note, it wasn't that congested at all. What a relief! Tee Cheng soon called us to go clubbing. She came over for mah jong instead in the end. Lol. I was hooked on David's psp playing NBA live. I know its lame ok? Got hooked on it while playing at Chong's place the other day. At 430am, we left for Gatwick to...
