I cannot believe the trip is finally here. I am seated in the extended legroom premium economy cabin on Cathay Pacific, thanks to my amazing Auntie Missy. It was it’s own class and the seats reclined more than any other airline I have ever been on. I got a bit nervous when I young boy took the aisle seat next to be but he ended up being quiet and enjoying his video games the entire time, a perfect airplane companion, especially since he was half the size of a normal person. They even served premium economy champagne and free wine… Night night world!
I did stay up for the lunch service, as you all know I am never one to miss a meal, even a crappy airline one! Then I watched my first screener of the trip, The Butler, which I thought was a great movie, but very strange to see Oprah acting. Then went to sleep for 4 hours until they served dinner. Thank God for being a vegetarian because the quinoa they served me was far better looking than the beef my seat neighbor was eating. After dinner, I slept for the remaining of the flight so it went by pretty quickly!
Once I got off my flight, I found Auntie Missy’s gate to greet her when she walked off the plane. It felt like the good old days when Gaga or my mom would come to my gate to greet me, instead of having to stand after security.
After anxiously waiting with no one to text, she finally walked off the plane. At least she was the first one off since fancy Auntie Miss flew first class. Needless to say she certainly got a bit more beauty sleep than I!
Since Auntie Missy got me a new pair of sunglasses for my birthday which I had yet to pick out, we ventured over to the tax free sunglass hut and found me a new pair of shades!! Although the $1,000+ price tags where at first alarming, have no fear, they were in Hong Kong Dollars! Check em out (ignore the greasy hair and extremely pale post-17 hour flight skin?)
And yes, of course I am having another glass of pinot at the lounge!
Disclamer: I only put the sunglasses on at 9:40pm in the Hong Kong airport to show all you lovely people. I do not think I am that cool to be able to rock sunglasses at night.
Now we are both sitting in the Cathay Pacific Airport lounge for the next two hours… At least this lounge is way nicer than any American lounge. Not the worst place to be stuck. I am very sleepy and just want to get to Bangkok already, but our flight is delayed 50 minutes!
Looking forward to getting to the hotel around 2am and passing out before our first day of adventure in Bangkok. Goodnight! Or should I say good morning since you are all waking up! Xo
