I Am Safe and Sound in Houston...

It's not a lazy weekend for me, but the sun was still half at sleep...


I was on my way to the airport, to the flu transporter country.

I knew I am gonna miss Malaysian food, like the nasi lemak...


And especially this...


The lard!

Nonetheless, I still gotta get onto the plane...


To get to the place (office) that I am clueless if I would still be in one piece after meeting all the creatures there.

After the exhaustive of more than 24 hours of marathon flight and transits, I finally touched down at the destination airport. I collected the rental car...


Mazda 6!! Hmmm... Felt like the trip wasn't too bad.

My rental eligibility supposed to allow me an American car Pontiac G6 that I drove previously but the service counter was kind to upgrade me to Emerald Club member which I couldn't recall if I registered once before. Since he said I did, why should I argue that I am not, right? Let's enjoy first!!

Wait a minute, this is US, drive on the opposite side...


I gotta "reprogram" my brain to ensure I drive on the correct side of the road. I don't want to be another Chinese star like Jacky Chan :)

Vrrooom!!!

Within 40 minutes, arrived at the hotel...


The Homewood Suites Hotel by Hilton.

I felt like a salted fish, let's check in, get the card key and head to bathroom now...


I am now flu-free in Houston. Safe and sound with no "ha-chew" (sneezing) sound.

P/S: read the guarantee on the card. Free night stay?! If this were to be BullehLand, I am sure the hotel would be closed down after 1 month in business.
