  • A messy ride home

    Emerging out of the MRT station at Changi Airport is like entering a giant Star Wars set, all ultra-modern architecture with Imperial greys and white fluorescent lighting. The station is at Terminal 2 and it was necessary to catch an automated airport shuttle, which also appeared out of Star Wars, to Terminal 1, where both… Read more

  • Down in Chinatown

    The next morning Alex obviously was not well. We gave him fluids and rest but eventually it came time to check out of the hotel. Wanting to keep him out of Singapore’s heat we decided to take him to a airconditioned shopping centre. But B was determined to visit Chinatown, an area that had seemed… Read more

  • Of laksa and chicken rice

I’ve had some okay ones in Malaysia and Singapore, but until recently my favourite laksa was at the well known Malaysian Chinese Restaurant in Hunter Street.

  • Sardines to Singapore

    It’s time for Alex to get his own seat. That was the inescapable conclusion from the flight to Singapore. In less than a month’s time it will be out of my hands anyway. He’ll have to travel in his own seat because that’s all they will allow for children over two years old. Until that… Read more

  • A short stay in Singapore

    In less than 12 hours time Alex and I will be flying off to Singapore for a few days, flying Jetstar via Darwin. B will follow a few hours later flying Qantas. While we are trapped in a narrowbody A320 with no inflight entertainment, she will be enjoying the offerings of the much bigger 747.… Read more
