Here’s a brief recap of my past week.
After screwing my flight up the previous day, I finally managed to make it onboard the plane in one piece. Needless to say, transit flights are a torture. It’s worse when you consider the fact that it was a day flight. Day flight = tough to sleep = sucks.
Here’s the fly that
I unwittingly blew into accidentally fell into my breakfast tea. Apparently the fly did not find my tea particularly enjoyable, since it decided that drowning was greatly preferable to drinking it all up.
This was a particularly interesting sight on the plane: clouds and their shadows on the continent. I thought the darker areas were lakes at first, until it occurred to me that having that many lakes did not seem logical at all.
This picture was the snap of the day: the horizon above the cloud layer. Pretty isn’t it?
This was a half-hearted effort at tweaking the contrast, which made the picture look particularly artificial, hmm.
First glimpse of Darwin: pretty place, and probably not very densely populated.
Transit lounge, and my gone-in-60-seconds CCLM (chicken, cheese, lettuce and mayo) sandwich. Hunger is always the best sauce.
*Insert suntanning/swimming sessions. Ahhh..*
The niece, who has already learnt to walk. Time flies.
Dinner at Handlebar (over at Lock Road, Alexandria area): general consensus was that the food’s overpriced for the quantity. The portions do seem to have shrunk somewhat since my last visit.
Beef noodles at Purvis Street with YT and LH; quite tasty but I should get a bigger helping next time round.
Brightly painted houses opposite Bugis Junction: very very nice.
A whole bunch of people exercising over at
OUB UOB Plaza atrium; must be some fitness initiative.
Miscellaneous sights nearby.
Splendid night view from Waraku Central.
Subway time at Tampines.
BSCI revision with War Machine (from the Iron Man series) in tow; you get this when buying the Iron Man popcorn combo from Golden Village cinemas.
A hand in perspective.
Swensens at Changi Airport T2: entree portions for the price of full portions. My comment on their feedback card:
“Portions were microscopic.”
Which was why we had supper at Bedok 85 after that.
Yoshinoya’s beef bowl: yum.
Mayday’s latest concert!
In-flight food; yet another $6 sandwich on the way home.
Thanks to all the friends who’ve met up, and mucho thanks to those people who send me off at the airport all the time; you guys are great!
