I got here (taipei) about two days ago, I think? the ride to the airport was quite bittersweet because I was not ready to leave my dad and pups all alone at home. I found myself in tears as my dad stopped in front of the terminal and we got off to get our luggages. Part of me felt guilty for leaving him at home all by himself, but I honestly thought my grandma would be home by now. My mum and I stayed outside for a while just to make sure my dad got out okay because airport traffic is horrendous! We went into the airport and checked in while we waited for my godmom.
We finally got onto the plane and boy, did time feel slow. I felt a little bit uneasy due to the recent plane crashes and of course, my horrible imagination went off and thought about how I will miss everyone if I were to die. Then I wondered about where we would crash and what would happen..how I would die. Would I be eaten by a shark? Impaled by a pole? Hit with shards of glass or airplane parts? To ease off my mind, I resorted to movies. I watched a few movies so I wouldn’t have jetlag. Another thing that made me feel uneasy was that there was a lot of turbulence. It got scary at times because I never experienced it as intense as I did this time. Not to mention I was watching Spiderman 2 where Peter Parker parent’s plane got sabotaged and they all died. SPiderman 2 was so OMG because I was not expecting Gwen to die :( I was sooooo sad T-T I LOVED LOVED MALEFICENT! they did a great job; I loved how she called Aurora little beastie. super cute! Then, I watched “The Fault In Our Stars” and all I can say is, darn you John Green! I cried like a baby so hard.. super glad I watched it when everyone was sleeping so they didn’t hear me. It was just so beautiful..heartbreak after heartbreak :( thought I was going to die from sorrow.
I finally got tired and decided that I could take a mini nap since there were still 4 hours before we landed. I must say, it’s quite uncomfortable to sleep on the plane. I had to keep on moving because my butt was getting numb from sitting for 10 hours. I woke up and it was breakfast time. YAYYY :D ( well this was dinner. breakfast was an omelette with ham and stuff).
An hour after breakfast, we landed in TAIWAN!! :D It was already 11 pm something and I think our ride waited for about half an hour by then. We were seated in the back, so of course it took a long time to get out of the plane. We had to make a stop at the duty free store to pick up some cigs (don’t know for who) and there was a HUGE line. Then, I had to go through immigration since I wasn’t a citizen but my mom and godmom were. That took about half an hour since there were a lot of tourist groups from China and Korea. It was already midnight by the time I got to the window and they had to change the stamp since it was already the next day. That took ten minutes too since the numbers were so damn small.
After EVERYTHING, we finally got to go get our luggage and it was the funniest thing ever. On the turning thing, there were only four luggages. Care to guess who those belong to? haha the only bright side of that is we don’t really have to look for it :B We hurried and gathered everything and went to go meet our family :) It was so great!!
By the time we got to my 舅媽’s house, it was already 1 I believe. I saw my youngest cousin and we talked for a long time before going to bed :] boy, I have to say, I have missed them oh so much. We had some time to catch up, but went to bed around 2:30am since we were all tired..
