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

The boys loved the airport "jungle"

We took the free shuttle to the hotel
