This is melbourne 02

We took Airasia X. The flight was 7 hours plus and I have to say it was really uncomfortable. The reason for that was because of the seat. It was really hard to recline them and we had to sleep slouching most of the time.

Anyway, the food was OK. Check out the Nasi lemak.

We got to the airport at Melbourne almost close to 11:30pm. Getting through Customs was ok, except that they wanted to fine my wife for trying to bring in the Kit Kat bar in the picture above and without declaring it (Australia requires all visitors to declare all dairy).

Right away I was quite impressed with the level of technology they have here. Just take this hand dryer I saw I'm their toilet, it says it can dry your hands in 10 secs and it really did! It's got huge fans in it and I could feel the air pushing the water of my hands.

Ok, so it doesn't take a lot to impress me. More in the next post.

This is Melbourne Part 01

It's been a long time since I when to a cold place. The only cold place I go to these day is my editing room, which I keep at 20C. So I was quite excited about going to Melbourne with my wife and mother-in-law for a holiday.

We had bought our ticket early as Air Asia was having a sale, and we were lucky enough to get discounted hotels. Accor was having a global sale so we got the rooms really cheap.

I'll post more pictures later. Right now, I'm trying to blog from the iPhone with a new blogging software. Leaving you with a picture of a friend we made there.
