The journey begins!

4 August 2014

The day has come! Our 3-month adventure begins today!

In fact, Fu is already on the plane for about 2.5 hours now. My flight isn’t due till about 6 hours later.

You’re probably wondering why we’re not flying together, right? I’ve explained it to about 5 different people already, but I’ll do it one last time (and after that, if people ask, I’ll ask them to go triplerin it haha!)

His company bought his air tickets, and as it was a morning flight and also a premium economy seat, it was much more expensive. The $5,800 price tag is way too much to pay! D:

I woke up to like 17 texts from him. He told me that he got an invitation to use the ANA lounge, and that was followed by endless gushing about the lounge.

Congratulations, ANA. Your marketing tactic worked fabulously on our Specimen F here.

It may also potentially change his life (and his wife’s!) beyond your simple intentions!


Ok, this will be my last post for a while till we settle down over in the states.

See you on the other side!

    Omg reading Specimen F’s texts made me laugh out loud. And then sigh sadly in jealousy. Even when I fly for work it’s cattle class and jeero amenities! Unfortunately reading about the awesomeness second-hand doesn’t work quite as well to spur me to make money. But lol Fu’s texts really damn funny. “Omg! It’s good to be rich!” ” really made me laugh

      Please, yours even rob you of your free day off! Clearly you’re working for the wrong company…

      I know Shell fly all staff Business class when the travel time is over x hours! (due to risk of DVT and all that)

      Fu loved the premium economy seat as well, and had to cheek to comment that “the screen was so far!” -_-

      ps: You can experience it first-hand by investing in a Priority pass! A hundred odd dollars seem like a paltry sum if it can serve as motivation!
