12 weeks post op, 1.4kg down and getting lei'd.

Get your minds out of the gutters, not that kind of lay LOL (maybe one day ha ha), no but in September next year, guess who's going to Hawaii?!?!?!?


With a new body...well almost.

So excited.  I cannot wait.

This all came about when my sister propositioned me.  I'll backtrack a little, so you know what's going on.

Last year was my sister's 50th birthday, so to mark the milestone, I surprised her with a holiday to Hong Kong.  I was last there in 1988 so I've always wanted to go back and so has she, we just never got around to it.  So everything was booked in January and I had kept things quiet until June when I surprised her with a very cryptic note outlining a trip overseas, weather at the destination, what kind of things to pack.  Like I said, very cryptic.  We weren't due to leave until September, so she had no clue as to where we were going.

I had organised everything behind her back and contacted her boss to apply for her leave.  As she knew we were going overseas somewhere, I asked her to give me money so I could convert it to spending money, but I held onto this until the final destination.

Our flight didn't leave until midnight, so she was checking the board at the airport and there were 3 flights leaving around the same time, so I tricked her by walking towards the Phuket counter, only to weave out again.  Walked up to Singapore Airlines counter and then it clicked...she thought we were going to Singapore.  But no.  I told her to wait behind whilst I went to the check in counter, explained to the clerk that my sister has no clue as to where we are going and not to say anything.  She didn't, which was great.  Then came the immigration card thingy.  I got her to fill everything else out but leave destination blank then I filled out that part.  No problem there.  Phew.

Upon arrival at Changi, my sister tried to make her way to baggage claim but I told her we can't.  She was a little confused.  I handed over her envelope containing spending money and then it clicked.

Back on track.

So she wanted to surprise me with a trip to Port Douglas, as I have never been, going in April next year out of school holidays.  But as I keep talking about Hawaii, well you get the idea LOL.  She said she can't afford for flights and accommodation to Hawaii for the both of us and I told her not to worry about it, we'll just split the cost.  So now we have a whole year to save up.  As soon as I see cheap flights for around the time we want to go (just waiting for her to confirm dates, as her coworker is on leave in September too).  We'll go for 10 days and island hop, as we've only ever been to Honolulu (this will be the 4th time).

And yeah, lost 1.4kg this week...total now is 22.1kg.  Yay!
