There can be no excuses as far as Salah is concerned. We have to pray all the five prayers and all of them on time.
“O you who believe! Fear Allah, and be with those who are true (in words and deeds).” [ al-Tawbah:119]
“Guard strictly the (five obligatory) prayers, especially the middle Salaat (˜Asr). And stand before Allaah with obedience.” [Surah al-Baqarah 2:238]
No matter where you are, what ever you do, Never Forget your Salah.
