Flashback: Time to leave home ….

I remembered the day when I flew out to the Middle East. (That was almost more than 5 years ago).  The start of my new adventure; something that I should have done a long time ago. Lots of emotions on that day. Family, relatives and friends at the airport. Teary eyed.  I was half awake; couldn’t sleep the night before. Knew that being away from my wife and kids would be a difficult phase for all of us.  The opportunity was too hard for me to turn down.  After all, I needed that change in working environment.  Alhamdulillah, this came along ….

Emirates had a good in-flight entertainment system.  ICE.  But, no matter what movies I selected, thoughts of my family kept playing in my mind.  Worse of all, I could not sleep that well-enough and forgot to hydrate myself during the long journey 😛

My stop-over in Dubai.  Headache – got to rest. The cause: Lack of water in-take and not sleeping enough during the flight.

By the way, the Nike shoes lasted quite long. Served me well.  But alas, I had to dispose of it after it became too worn out.  Am glad to get those pair … one of the best that I used so far ….
