Bye-bye Malaysia

 Well... that's it... we are back on the ferry headed back to mainland Malaysia...

 This seemed like an awfully short trip compared to the 3.5 months I did earlier.

But this trip was different in other ways too...

I met another little bear!! Sebastian and I spent a lot of time whispering in the front of the car... scheming you might say...

We have a plan...

Back in Kuala Lumpur and look... they have a Christmas tree set up!!

As we got closer to our destination, Sebastian made his pitch to Mama's partner... "Well.... you know... I would really really like to see some snow! I was hoping I could come home with you guys and see a bit of Canada!" Of course Sebastian turned on his considerable little-bear-charm (of which we have a tonne) and Mama's partner caved immediately... Us little bears are pretty irresistible you know.

Wheeee!!! We are at the airport... Sebastian didn't have anything to pack (little bears travel light)... although I did explain about how cold snow can be.... He's not too concerned and I'm glad I have a wardrobe of warm winter outfits!

On the plane... we are flying to Hong Kong...

Sebastian hasn't ever flown anywhere before so this is new for him...

Now we're taxiing to the  end of the runway... oh boy...

And up in the air!

Sebastian thinks that we are flying higher than those two big towers in Kuala Lumpur... yup, we are!

And now we're in Hong Kong... but not for long.

I showed Sebastian the route we are going to be flying. He's kind of glad we are going to be relatively close to land in case anything goes wrong with the plane...

And the rest of the trip was a blur! We were so tired that we just crawled into the backpack and fell asleep - made it through passport control fine... Sebastian didn't have a passport but just pretended to be a stuffed animal and we were waved through with no issues... picked up luggage and got spit out into International Arrivals where... Mama was waiting to greet us! Yay!!! But both Sebastian and I were pretty groggy and jet-lagged so mumbled a few greetings and fell asleep again for the long ferry ride home...

  2. I'm glad you both made it home okay! That is a very good trick, to pretend like you are a stuffed animal, then you don't have to pay for a ticket. Silly humans. :)

    1. Oh yes, we stuffies can travel for cheap-cheap... although we do need human companions to get us through security...

    1. Sebastian is still sleeping... he's not used to jet lag! I hope we can get out for a hike... as long as the weather cooperates!
