Looi Kin-Ming

(no subject)

Back in London again, at my former employer's offices. Wasn't expecting to be back in London this soon but they're having a party to say farewell to the MD and HR director. I'd assumed I was going to miss it due to working in Germany but the person I'm working for was keen to attend and got us a mid-afternoon flight in to Stanstead. Hey, I'm not going to argue with an early return home and some free food and booze!

This week's weird German security check - the guys at Lübeck airport were checking all electrical devices in hand luggage, including my laptop, running some sort of chemical sniffer strips along them, presumably to check for explosives...

Another weird observation. As I understand it, Ryanair is an Irish airline and Ireland is in the Euro zone. The flight is also coming out of a Euro zone country, packked with Germans. So why did the stewardess look so surprised when I wanted to pay for food and drink in Euros rather than Sterling and have to go away to calculate it?!?
