Hello everybody from steamy Singapore where it is currently sunny and 29C!! We're about to go and explore Chinatown to see what's going on for Chinese New Year, expecting crowds, food and fun.
We got our seats etc sorted out with Qantas after problems checking-in online but, alas, no seats anywhere near the pilot! Good flight on a new A380 but I managed to be a drama queen and pass out! A nice lay down in the aisle, a good dose of oxygen and electrolytes and then a good sleep and I'm feeling much brighter! What a palaver. Al was seated next to Emily, 19 years old from Portsmouth, travelling on her own to Australia and NZ after falling out with her friend who got herself an undesirable boyfriend (in Emily's opinion) and decided not to travel after all. Emily seemed confident and we helpd her on her way at Changi.
Quite happy with Qantas, good food and pleasant service but no hot towels! I watched "Amelia", about Amelia Earhart and Al enjoyed "Australia" and the Ricky Gervais "Man who told lies" film. All good.
Four more days here in Singapore and lots to do. Our hotel is fine although we have a (fake) leopard skin headboard which is little surreal to say the least.
Lots of love to you all, will be in touch again soon.
Hugs, Lis and Al xx
