Thermal Gloves and Missing Balls

Well, by the time you are reading this, I should be 35,000 ft in the air over the Pacific heading towards the US. If you are online at around 3pm, you might just catch me popping in while I transit in Narita.

The night prior to my departure is always my luggage packing day. First things to prepare are the stuff that I need to bring for my business, i.e. laptop, documents, catalogues, colour swatches, samples etc...

Next would be planning my wardrobe for the trip. If my trip lasts 10 days, you will find me having a detailed "wardrobe plan" detailing what to wear on which day. And in order to do this planning, I have to print out the weather forecast for each destination on their respective days.

I don't like what I see on the print out.

I see a lot of days with temperature falling below ZERO. Hong Kan. Anything below 10°C. I sian half liao. That means having to pack extra clothes e.g. under-shirts, jackets, etc, i.e. heavier luggage. As a traveler, I like to travel light and a suitcase full of smelly laundry at the end of the trip is not something I am too happy about. Fortunately for this trip, I am staying at a friend's place in Atlanta i.e. I only need to pack clothes up to Atlanta and have fresh laundry to recycle my clothes. That would be about 4 days' worth of clothes less to pack.

Whenever I hit cold weather, the one thing that I definitely cannot do are my thermal gloves. I finger-joints ached like mad when I am out there freezing my balls off (except when I am playing golf).

Now these thermal gloves are a God-send, they are very thin (See picture on the right. I place a button next to it for comparison) and yet they keep your hands warm. Unlike ordinary gloves which are bulky when you wear them (hence suffer a lost of dexterity), thermal gloves are thin enough that you can actually pick up a coin while wearing it.

I didn't know about this thermal gloves nor what to call it initially. It was on TV when I first saw it and it was a football match where Arsenal was playing. I saw Thierry Henry wearing it while playing and I emailed MeePok, who was based in London, to buy for me (thanks Bro!).

Like I said, I didn't know what it was called and so I told MeePok that it was the "Thierry Henry Gloves" and suggested that he go watch the next Arsenal game to find out what I was talking about.

Oh well, I hope to be able to continue blogging while I am away. Catch me on MSN/Yahoo/Skype/ICQ if you can. I will be on US time zone.

And speaking of balls, I think they will be going into hiding while I am there in the frigging cold.

I will see them and you guys in a fortnight. Haiz....
