Back in London – of Malaysian Airlines, Langkawi, UCL and the city meltdown

I am back in my old abode. The temperature has been kind. It was 20 degrees yesterday. Unbelievable, for  it is the height of Autumn. Today it is going to be 21 degrees, insyallah,

The gloomy the news the better the weather said the TV anchor,

The flight was long. The business class seat helped but the dehydration and being curled up in 13 hours is just too much. The business class fare is just too high. At twenty plus thousand I have a strange feeling that the business travellers are subsidising the first class traveller. The first class cabin was empty. The politicians are just too busy to travel, I guess. Here I was seated in the first class cabin courtesy of my senior of the Old School. We had tea before adjourning to the cockpit. Why not follow the KLM way. They have done away with First Class. The business class fare is relatively lower at  sixteen thousand.

Even my new expatriate friend in the next seat was complaining. It was too much, we agreed. Matthew, considered Malaysia home. His admiration for the manner we Malaysians have been living harmoniously was credible and honest, considering the manner the British have been struggling to live in a changing neighbourhood. He was missing Langkawi, how he wished it was the Langkawi flight he was boarding.
