I got so used to travelling already that usually, I'd pack my stuff a couple of hours before my trip. But I couldn't believe how excited I can be to be in China on Monday for the olympic art exhibition at the Beijing Capital Library where I was invited to exhibit. I couldn't contain it that I am already packed and ready to go since last night (passport and toothbrush and all in tow)!
Adding to that excitement is a planned two-day trip to Tibet which I hope and pray will go on without a glitch... I need a separate visa for Tibet which I can only get in mainland China so nothing yet is written in stone.
Geesh, I am totally swamped with work as I'll be making up for the two weeks I'll be gone, but this excitement's really cracking my schedule up! I am so lagging behind my deadlines for crying out loud! I need to finish a 2009 calendar design, an art gallery interior, a boutique hotel marketing stuff, a flash movie, a handful of menu designs, redo the Khmer Ramayana and a handful of other projects for different clients. So I don't expect to get my hands to blogger.com until perhaps I am in China.
Two of my high school buddies - Karl from New Zealand and Elaine from the Philippines will be joining me in China as well so it'll be a cool class reunion too. Karl has promised to bring the most exotic cheeses from Auckland and hopefully, Elaine can bring me a big wicked bag of Boy Bawang.
I am also spending a couple of days in Hongkong but would rather stay longer in Beijing or Tibet. But then, if I get bored in Hongkong, Macau is an hour away... darn rats, now i can't sleep thinking about it!
