This trip was planned months ago and for some reason we could only get a booking to depart at 5:10 PM.
Left the house at 2:30 PM with one hour to spare at the Singapore Airlines lounge. I know it was the day after Christmas, so the male staff working at the lounge were very creepy and oversolicitous, like they were expecting a tip or pamasko. I think Singapore Airlines needs to know how creepy they are. I had no more pesos on me as we just had enough money for travel and airport taxes, so even if I was tempted to tip them, I didn’t.
The plane was an Airbus and not a 777 as I originally booked, so I was kind of scared. But Singapore Airlines has a good track record, so….
I prayed a lot and read four magazines while the boys ate. This was Jeroen’s starter
I don’t normally eat on the plane, but I it was 7 PM and my last meal was at 2 PM. There was grilled tapa on the menu. Not bad at all. Jeroen helped me eat this.
Could not resist an extra serving of garlic bread = busog
We landed safely. First to leave the plane
No wonder Changi is one of the world’s best airports. Simple yet lovely
The kids loved the indoor jungle
We took the free shuttle to the hotel
Here’s the room
The welcoming committee
I fell asleep reading Time Out Singapore and saw this woman on the back page
Her name is Tae, how sad
