All my bags are packed... i'm ready to go...

So... I will be away til end of next week, for an unintended vacation ;) well, it was a spur of a moment decision since the one mentioned that he 'might' attend a meeting in London sometime early next week. And, since the little one needs to be breastfed, we would naturally have to bring her along albeit madame having to fly solo to London as I couldn't get on the same flight with the one, since there's limited seats for those needing bassinets for their babies. Therefore, I'm leaving just half a day sooner...

Explaining to the little munchkin was so easy since he understood that little jj needs to be with me or I would definitely have left them both at home so that mommy and daddy could get one week of bliss hehe... hmmm... I guess that time will come, eventually.

I'm anxious, since it will be my first time flying on a long haul flight with a baby who can be a real toughie when she feels like it. One who's always cranky in unfamiliar environment and not afraid to let the whole world 'hears' how she feels... in fact, apart from my mom who once thought little jj had 'wind' due to her unusually loud and weird way of crying, another woman I met while queueing up at Jusco's earlier today, thought there was something wrong with little jj... like, seriously wrong ;P heh... seriously, being with her 24 hours a day, everyday, you wouldn't think anything weird from the way she cries - it's all drama :D

Anyways, with moi anticipating some difficulties to move around on the plane and having an impatient baby, I had packed her stuff and my stuff in a real organised way, each categorised and nicely packed in individual zip-lock plastic bags so that I do not have to scramble my way to find her bib or extra pants or jacket or whatever it is I'd need to find.

And... due to the limitations in carrying liquids and the fact that I'd need to be super-quick, the above are part of what I am carrying in my hand-luggage - cloth facial cleanser for that quick swipe to freshen up before landing; small packets of baby wipes for little jj (I could use it too to clean my hands); facial masks for that quick perk-me-up and hydration after that long hours (and only when little jj sleeps); mineral face powder so that I would look nicely made up without that cakey appearance after those long hours; and of course, disposable undies so that I could just throw away and have a fresh, clean new pair.

I'm so looking forward to shopping after working extra hard the last few weeks but I am especially ecstatic that we'll be meeting up with the one's best friends for life, Muz and Eju, and their little Noah.

So... the flight leaves in an hour's time... til then, wish me luck on the flight...
