Kuala Lumpur 2013

I had a three-day break in Kuala Lumpur, which was really a nice time. Because Malaysia and Vietnam are ASEAN countries, I did not have to apply for a visa and there is a direct flight from Hanoi to KL so I did not have to transit. These things made my trip easy and not tiring at all. The first impression on me was KL International Airport. It is new and has a good design. The landing area is a bit distance from the arrival lounge. After getting out of the plane, I had to walk a little and find the train to get to the terminal. Thanks to little travelling experience and  studying the map I figured out how to get out that big airport. Another impression is that the capital is hilly and green. I really like the green, well-cared patches of grass and plants along the streets and roads. And of course the twin towers also made a good impression on me. I was lucky to be able to be lifted up to the bridge connecting the towers and to the observation deck on the 83rd floor. Wow, what a height! Click here to see some of the photos of me. How happy I look!

Hot, terribly hot weather

We have been suffering the first hottest period of the beginning of summer 2013. Really uncomfortable travelling at such a hot temperature. Our classrooms do not have air conditioners so learning and teaching are really our misery. We stop at 11 am and go home at once to avoid the sun at the highest position in the sky. Poor students and teacher working in the afternoon from 1 pm. Luckily, our flat is air conditioned and honestly I do not want to go out at all when back home from work.

Time for summer holiday. 3 weeks to go.

Completion of the modification of the flat

Last Friday, I officially finished doing minor repairs on the flat (but the cost was not minor at all). The flat is not luxurious but I am proud of it and feel happy with it. I can feel relieved/relaxed now after about 8 months I was busy with flatty things. Another milestone in my life has been marked and it is time to set and achieve other goals.
