Back from North Dakota - Mikhail, our avatars in the Star Wars Universe, and the eternal battle between plants and zombies

The Kuala Lumpur International Airport is a quiet and gloomy place at 3.30am. There are
rows and rows of parked airport taxis waiting for the passengers.
Hi guys. I never followed through about Mikhail's (my 8-year old heir and scion of the sinner's empire) arrival at 4.30am on Wednesday morning. Well, I was unable to sleep so I woke up about 2.30am which was quite fortunate because a quick check online showed that the flight was gonna arrive early by one hour! So me and my brother zoomed down to the airport in an early morning downpour. The airport is a good 45 minutes drive away. We drove pass the many container lorries plying their trade along the empty highway.

Mika and the Maricars arrived safely and we immediately took my son home, although we did first buy him some Chicken Tenders from Burger King. Poor kid had only 3 french buns over the course of the 24 hours flight and transit from Bismarck, ND. He was terribly hungry, but I could see that he was also very happy to be home.

Bonding over Plants vs Zombies... at 2am the night after

He couldn't sleep later that night due to jetlag, so we spent our time bonding over Plants vs Zombies. I am embarrassed to admit that I too am addicted to this ridiculous game. 

Over breakfast he shared his view of the Star Wars Universe. And it appears that he and I have our own avatars in George Lucas's sci-fi fantasy world... of varying degrees of goodness and beauty. He he he.

Jango Fett is the father of Boba Fett. They are mercenaries and bounty hunters.
I am just a lawyer, but I guess that approximates some people's idea of
a mercenary or bounty hunter. He he he.
Rotta is the baby son of Jabba. I think you can guess
which one is Mika and which one is me... 
Have a lovely Friday, sunshine. I am happy when things are in order as they should be. Like Mika being home with me. alhamdulillah...

The plants defending the lawn from invasion by the zombies.
It looks confusing. But this damn game is a lot of fun!

God bless.

Hi Ash,

Hi Denise,

My 8 year old astonished one of his aunts... "So... are you voting Obama or Romney?"

Yes... the prodigal boy has returned!
