A crazy way to start 2009!

Instead of counting down with my loved ones and my frens, I have work to do. Sigh... Super sian. So I have to go onboard a ship to do some repairs. While waiting for the ship to arrive, I managed to see some fireworks which was a good thing. It went on well less the fact that the ship was late and had to climb a very long gangway to reach the ship.

When the whole thing was done, and we intend to leave the ship, we could not do so as the ship's both sides have another 2 small ships next to them and our launch (boat) could not come alongside. So in the end, they decided to get us in a cargo net and use a crane to lower us down! Yes! That is what they did and it was at least a 3 floor drop. That was pretty much exciting that I decided just to sit down instead of standing up. Simply scary.

Finally managed to leave the ship and by the time we reach shore, it was about 6am. After a hearty Mac breakfast, went home and sleep for the rest of the new year day. What a day to start 2009!
