From San Francisco To Taipei and Malaysia

My twenty seven days vacation to California has finally come to an end.  And here I am at the airport in San Francisco after checking in all my luggage.  When I arrived in San Francisco, I had only one luggage to check in and one hand luggage with me.  However after the vacation, I had two "overweight" luggage, one hand luggage weighing 7 kilograms and one tote bag!  At the airport last minute, I had to take out some of my stuff to my sibling's luggage.  Gosh!!  I better control my shopping next time!
What a relief after checking in all the luggage...
San Franciso airport during midnight....
While waiting for the plane, 
I walked around with my mother and took some pictures..
Quiet and serene....
The flight departed at around 1.35am...
and we reached Taipei the next mornin (15 hours difference)
around 6 in the morning...
Upon reaching Taipei airport, we went for the famous beef noodles...
Too bad I forgotten to take some pictures of the food...
Taipei was bustling with passengers, nowadays almost everyone can take vacations.  There are always cheap holidays on promotion,  we just have to check out the websites concerned.  Anyway as for me, after this long vacation and spending in US, I will "sit down quietly" for some time before I start to plan again for another vacation.  The money spent was certainly worth it, I feel so refreshed and contented... it is one of my dreams to go to California and I will look forward to going for another vacation if I have the time, the money and the stamina.... LOL...

Coming back to the flight, we reached Kuala Lumpur International Airport around 2pm and without taking any rest, I drove back to Ipoh with my mom.  Come to think of it, I spent the whole day on the flight and land journey... 12 hours from SF to Taipei, then transit another 5 hours flight to KL airport and then journey back to Ipoh by car another 2-3 hours.... Thank God I didn't feel any jet lag along the two hours drive home!  Phewww....
