Changi Airport, Singapore - 9th - 10th Nov 2009

By pshipley - Posted on 10 November 2009

We are sitting in Singapore's fantastic airport, Changi, waiting for our flight to Brisbane.  So far we have been awake for 28 hours,  so forgive me if I start rambling, hallucinating or stop in mid-sentence, only another 14 or so to go. 


The reason why we have had so little sleep is that we flew from London on the monstrously large Airbus A380, the largest passenger aeroplane in the world.   The entertainment system is first class with every seat (in economy at least, dread to thing what the posh buggers have at the front of the plane) having access to something like 300 movies and TV shows. 750 CD's and 75 computer games.  My pile of books and magazines haven't been touched.


With all that entertainment on hand it hardly seems worthwhile paying for one of the suites that they have on board, if you purchase 2 suites then the dividing wall can be removed to make a double bed and, presumably, your own entertainment.


I'm a little worried that we will all fall asleep and miss the connection, however the kids are doing a sterling job bouncing of the walls and keeping the whole terminal awake.  I think it is the natural excitement of their first visit to Asia, my wife thinks it is the 200g of raw sugar I am feeding them every 20 minutes or so.

Hey Phil,

so are you in NZ already or hanging out in OZ?
Let us know when you guys are here and where you're going to be (if you know), so we can work out a get together!

oh yeah, and def. no roast turkey here for Christmas.
for us it's been prawns on the barbie (amongst other things) every year!

See you all soon,
Susanne and whanau

Very nice site!
