Seoul Bus System

Seoul Introduces New City

Traveling to Singapore

Day 1, 15 December 2011

The 2nd day of my leave I flew to Singapore to take 5 days vacation with my parent. I imagined the vacation would be great and fun. I had few plans during staying over there. We departed on 15 December 2011 from Terminal 3. I think you will know which airline is. The plane should take off around 14:30. But, until 14:30 the plane was still not arrived yet. Everyone, who was already uneasy, asked the airline staff about the schedule. It delayed about 10 minutes. It was not good starting. Arrived at Terminal 1 Changi around 18:15 local time. Before passed the immigration, I just found out that the roaming international of my mother phone was not active, even though I’d already filed a request few weeks ago. I shall complain to the provider.  The immigration queuing was long and we were at the end of queue. Passed the immigration, we wanted to take the luggage. It almost made me scared, because I couldn’t find them. If the luggage still couldn’t be found, the worst thing we had to do is bought the clothes. Of course, it would deduct from our money, which was not much. After looked for few minutes, finally I found them. It was quite relief. It was 18:55 when we took taxi to hotel. Continue reading
