Back Home & To Work

Helloz Everyone! =)

I’m back home and back into the groove of work, much too soon.. ..

Have not started on the study trip report which I suspect that I will have to embark on REALLY soon.. bleh.. have just passed the clearing-and-replying-to-1000-red emails stage.. >_<

So, have verified that the Swedes are good-looking & the place’s rather lovely! Heh. Am also of the view that the place seems really safe and the people friendly (we’ve had 2 persons at 2 diff locations checking if we need help when I was struggling with the map hee). And I really appreciate all the lifestyle shops ard (the Swedes are big on creative designs ard the house) – I got to shop for things for the new home! Heh.

Want to share some pics here but I haven’t had the time (everyday entertaining the puddings until too late). Will try to do so tonight. =)

[Update as of 2 Jul, 12.34am]
