Excerpt from my old Xanga entrycirca 2007: 

Buongiorno~! Roma ... a virtual feast of: rustic charm, romantic rendezvous moments, mesmerizing piazzas, quaint shops, gelaterias, fascinating architecture, history spanning back thousands of yrs ... la dolce vita! And of course, a vino lover's heaven. So this is how the Romans did it~!

Left Italia with quite the loot: assorted cioccolato, a couple of Vatican rosaries, extra virgin olive oil from the Non-Mafia fields of Sicily  ... and 6 bottles of red.  All ranging from Bardolino to Sangiovese.  Now hoooool' up ... I came prepared. ;-) A 2nd luggage was packed in anticipation of the great Italia pounce.  Though, lugging the loot across Rome and London proved to be ... quite a task. (Thanks, V! =D)

So what I missed? Arrived back in the states with a few surprises.  Besides being flooded with a ton of texts/voicemails; noticed a few new spots popped up along I45, LingLing moved to the Magic Kingdom, learnt some interesting details from Kai, Hai + Ricky ... and found quite a few wedding invitations awaiting my arrival.  All within a 2hr span.  Kuya Bum is getting married, Giang's getting married, Kim's getting married, JR&Ar- .... well, eventually, anywayz.  It's only been 2 weeks!  What the hell happened??

Now I leave you with something I saw at the Fiumicino airport in Roma:

I plan to retire from work.  Not from life.

That's gangstah.

Ciao~!
