What a Morning…

Over the past few days South East Asia have been hit by the Typhoon (Ketsana), and now a new typhoon is brewing (Parma), Philippines seemed to be the most affected so far. As for Thailand, we have been fortunate enough to only be suffering from a very heavy downpour, especially last night.

When we woke up this morning, we discovered a couple of floods on two small balconies, so I had to spent some time clearing those out, which meant it was getting late in leaving the house, so we had to rushed around getting everything ready.

While carrying everything (4 huge bags and a note book) and making my way down the wooden stairs (with a pair of super slippery socks), I took a bit of a tumble. I must have made a real racket, because your mother rushed out from the bedroom thinking that one of the cupboard had fallen on you.

Just like in a cartoon, sliding on my behind down 7 or 8 steps, followed closely by all the bags must have made one amazing sight, because you were transfixed at my misfortune. Luckily I didn’t bang my head, but my elbow, ankles and bottom was and is very sore.

After your mother rushed out, I had discovered later that she was more concern with her notebook more than the bruise on my behind :)
