I finally finished packing. The airport shuttle will pick me up in about 4 hours. I really wanted to travel light this time but I still ended up with two pieces of luggage, which puzzled me tremendously. The airline just reduced the baggage weight allowance to 23kg due to the worldwide soaring fuel prices. I may have to end up paying the penalty charge. I didn’t go to bed till three this morning trying to see what I could do to jam pack everything in there. I could not take out those presents for friends and family. I could not leave those pricy stuff requested by friends and family. I could not say no to friends who want me to deliver food supplements to their relatives. Well, the only things that I could take out would be my personal stuff then! So, out my dressy attires, no more dress shoes and no bottles of personal make-ups. Well, I did pack really light for myself but I still have two heavy loads for the others. Anyway, friends, don’t be surprised when you see me in Birkenstocks, shorts and T-shirts when I hand you a present or when I deliver your mother's package to you. That's my sacrifice! Sloppy J1492 is coming home and dressing like a UPS delivery guy in shorts! I guess there will be tons of shopping to do in Taiwan. The only problem is I really hate shopping!
