Good Luck to the MERDEKA RALLY

At exactly 3pm London time 48 Malaysians in 11 4WD and 7 motorbikes were flagged off in front of the Malaysian High Commission in Belgrave Square. They will be heading towards Holland and crossing several countries and Insyaallah will reach Malaysia on 31st August!
God, how I need stories like this! The flagging off ceremony was so emotional...so much fun, so exciting. I nearly phoned home to ask the family to get their own dinner as I was really tempted to go! The dissertation can wait, the cats can go to the neighbours and I'll blog along the way. What fun!

There are couples, families, doctors, lawyers...what a way to see the world!
Let us wish them luck!
