Happy 40th Brithday, Singapore!

August 8th, 2005 by MrLuxuryFashionGuru

Heathrow Airport Terminal 3 was a shockingly bad experience.  Who would have guessed that an international terminal at the main London airport could be so decrepit and ill-designed?  It was cramped, noisy and unpleasant to navigate.  Everything looked old and unwashed.  The staff were mostly understandably surly.  *shudder*  I’m starting to appreciate the (smoky) Frankfurt airport a lot more now.

I am at least thankful for the fact that I managed to get on the plane with my over 70kg of luggage without a) collapsing, b) paying excess baggage charges.  Actually it was closer to 80kg, I think.  (That’s some 200 pounds for the non-metric-minded.)  Yes, that *is* considerably heavier than I weigh, and three to four times more than what’s allowed.

And now I am back in time for National Day, as I had hoped 🙂  The extended family went for an early morning walk along the boardwalk at Changi, which was nice, and much needed-exercise.  Following that we all hit the Changi Village hawker centre, noted for excellent mee siam, mee rubus, longtong, nasi lemak etc. etc.  Yum.

As a result of having slept six hours on Friday night, zero hours on Saturday night, one hour in the departure lounge at Heathrow, one hour on the 14-hour flight, one hour at home and eight hours last night, I am not jet-lagged.  I am, however, very panda-eyed and constantly ready for a nap.

Maybe I’ll take one now.
