Hello Singapore!
Posted on

We’re back.
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

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

Every season I wonder what Louis Vuitton Handbags will create. I know I won’t like everything, but I can count on Louis Vuitton to make a few bags that are absolutely lust-worthy, it’s just what they do. When we shared a closer look at their Spring 2012 collection, I remember not being entirely impressed. Of course there was a theme – lightness and femininity paired with a whimsical touch – but as many have said, the bags look like they are made out of plastic (which they aren’t, just look at the price tags). But nestled into this collection is… Read more »

I wonder if Ms Tae have Filipino colleagues. They must be giggling inside whenever they call her, talk to her or email her!

My husband used to work in Singapore and met a Thai guy who teased him about his name being the same as the beer Leo. Lakas ng loob mang-asar when he has Tititorn for a name! Lol!

In fairness to Tae, she doesn’t look it. Haha! I understand how you feel, when I was growing up I had a Korean classmate with the same name, it was always pronouned ‘tey’ but one day when I saw his folder with his name spelled out I couldn’t help but laugh so hard I got kicked out of the room. Hahahaha!

I know her name is pronounced differently, but if Fate is kind, Ms. Tae won’t get leg-shackled to a Filipino with a low-brow sense of humor…

Are you kidding?  Airbus is way better aircraft than the triple 7!  If you’re watching Nat Geo’s Aircrash Investigation, its always the 777 thats having so many accidents.  Am safer with Airbus. And you are too!
