ETS: Train one of three

Aboard this Chinese made train to Gemas. Fresh and clean on board. Hope the TV screens don’t have sound.

Butterworth, Penang, Malaysia

The sleepy start of a long ride

I arrived at Butterworth station an hour early for the long ride to Singapore. Only now, with less than a half an hour to go is it getting busy.

Sad to say goodbye to the other two, who are taking the quick flight, but excited to see more of Malaysia from the ground.

But we only just arrived!

Already time to leave Singapore. Had a breakfast of Janggut Laksa from behind the hotel. Collected the print out of our AirAsia boarding pass and now just waiting for the minibus. So tired!

Sleepy at Singapore

Survived the flight from Sydney to Singapore. The Qantas A332 was in a domestic configuration and fitted out with iPads instead of seatback screens. I just used my phone with the Qantas Entertainment App to stream the map and listened to music. Magnificent scenery leaving Sydney, but then we entered high cloud and it was mostly that for the rest of the flight. Bump, bump, bump. Arrived in Singapore too late to eat. Very tired.

Marine Parade, Southeast, Singapore

Waiting at the lounge

At the Qantas Business Lounge before our QF5 flight to Singapore. Mixed feelings. Anxious, not really in the mood to travel, but this is a good looking day and the travellers time. Lounge food is good and there is gelato and cheesecake, so that’s a positive.
