I'm off to Brisbane for a quick visit to a dying relative. My grand uncle (mother's side) is very old and sick and has refused all food and water. I don't want to go. As harsh as it sounds, but I really don't feel like it. There's a mountain of work for me to do here - and I don't want to go visiting old dying relatives. BUT. It is an important occasion and feelings aside, honor and duty calls.
The air ticket though ain't cheap. Its gonna cost nearly $700 for this return trip. But its a sudden thing and no planning was involved. Besides its an important to pay one's respects to the living.
I have to admit harboring a idea to go scuba diving when I'm up north. But it seems entirely inappropriate. Slap!!!!
