The chair

I’ve been wanting this Eames Rocker for a long time.
I have sat on it at D-mop, Hong Kong.

Secret Fresh has one. So finally I bumped into one in Beijing, in a wonderful store called Edimass.


I figured, since there was nothing to buy in Beijing and I’m flying business class, I might as well buy a chair I’ve always wanted.
The thing is, it came in a humongous box, even though it weighs only 12 kilos.
So I took my chances. Two kind men carried it back to my hotel. But I had to hire a van to go to the airport and prayed for the best.
I didn’t want to leave the chair in Beijing.
They say Beijing has one of the worst airports in the world due to its massive size and frankly, lack of air and odor management, but a kind angel helped me from van to immigration.
A young airport employee wearing a suit helped push my cart until I checked in with no excess baggage, no overweight. We were led to a special x-ray for over-sized baggage. He dropped me off at immigration, we shook hands, and said goodbye.
Oh, and Keri would appreciate that he kind of looks like this guy.

God is really good. I took Dragon Air from Beijing to HK and Cathay from HK-MNL.
Beijing to HK was really bumpy I almost cried, but thanks to 1/2 Rivotril, I fell asleep and survived.
And here is the chair with neither a bump nor scratch: my dream chair at home.


Isn’t she lovely?
