Singapore to London: A first class experience with Malaysia Airlines

The return trip from Singapore was once again with Malaysian Airline, but this time I was treated to First Class. Frank managed to find an excellent deal, which meant the price was far from exorbitant and it gave me something to really look forward to. Singapore to KL I had a couple of hours to ...

My Singapore Onsen Experience: a little slice of Japanese spa culture

After a few days of jet-lagged work/survival in Singapore, I'd adjusted to the time difference and was enjoying my visit. Unfortunately, it was time to come home! Note to self: ensure the next visit to Singapore includes a weekend for adjusting to the time difference and enjoying the nightlife a bit more! All the same, ...

London to Singapore with Malaysia Airlines

We've just arrived in our Singapore hotel, so it's time to share a quick review of the journey here. Our check-in at Heathrow T4 went without a hitch and we quickly passed through security. In possibly record time! No shopping required, so we headed straight for the airline lounge to wait for our flight. We ...

I’m sick, grumpy and I need some sleep…

Sitting in the Quantas lounge at Singapore airport, waiting for my flight back to London. A tough but great week of work has ended on a bit of a sour note. I think I have food poisoning... I've been battling a combination of "the sweats" and "the shakes" since I woke up this morning and ...

That’s better…

A sleep update from Singapore: I managed to get more sleep last night...a lot more. I was unconscious by 8:30pm and didn't wake up until 4:50am. Epic, uninterrupted sleep. Save for some bizarre dreams about changing career to become a stage magician. Just couldn't keep my eyes open after about 8:20pm...even though I had Game ...

Bleurgh….

In Singapore... finally asleep just after midnight, woken up by thumping bass just before 3am. I have been awake ever since. The bass was coming from a nightclub across the street. A quick Google search confirmed it was going to be open until 5am. The music continued well past 5:30am. I went to reception about ...
