In terms of the in flight entertainment, I got a bit of sleep, watched 2 films Moonlight (La Land your time will come) and Girl with all the Gifts (not a tough one with the book having been read last year - worth a go if anyone hasn't read that yet - few questions there about who determines who is top of the tree on this planet of ours - fairly sure how the Brexit crew would read it, and probably quite a few of the Remainers too!)
(Carys) After a mix of delayed planes, lot's of walking back and forth, and some confusion, we got on the plane. After overcoming my nerves and going up in the air. The first 45 minutes - and hour went smoothly, but after that things began to go downhill for me.
I began to feel really queasy, and I won't go into the nasty details about my travel sickness. The entertainment would have been great, I'm sure, but I didn't even manage to finish ONE film in TWELVE hours because of my queasiness. I slept for most off the plane ride anyway, so a pretty rubbish flight for me!
(Lloyd) A delayed entrance to Singapore further delayed by a slow passport control - our lonely bags were last off the carousel but hey ho, if you don't stop to look around once in a while ...
Eventually got a taxi to the Novotel Clark Quay, but no messing, with little time to explore this wonderful City, we ignored any aromas building up for the best part of a day travelling, and got back out there. The skyline on the way in was enough to persuade us there was a bit to see
Caught a taxi down to the garden by the bay, and lost ourselves in a bit of tropical foliage, some modern 'foliage' and all surrounded by the urban jungle that is contemporary Singapore. A pretty cool light show to the sounds of 'The Blue Danube' quite evocative, worth raising a toast to my Nanna at that point.
