I'm at Changi Airport again transiting to Fukuoka

This is the second time in 2011 that I have mee rebus at Ah Wang stall inside Changi Airport.

I brought my parents to Japan last November, we met up at Changi Airport. They flew from KL, I flew from Perth. It's a meaningful trip for me as that was the first time for me to bring my parents to Japan, a place I call second furusato.

That was also the first time for my parents to travel overseas alone, and Singapore Airline did a great job looking after them. After staying one month in Japan, they returned home via Singapore, again with great care by Singapore Airline.

It's great to be able to look after my parents and showing them around Japan.
I returned to Perth via Singapore in February this year alone.

Now I am transiting again at Changi Airport, flying to Fukuoka again.

So again took a mee rebus snack at Ah Wang, and recalling the time I spent with my parents at Changi Airport.

End of the year, we'll fly to the land of white clouds!

Transitting at Changi Airport

This morning was really early.
Slept at 3:10 am and woke up at 4 am.
Went out of the apartment at 5:05 am, arrived at the Bus center at 5:15 am.

Arrived at Fukuoka International airport at 0745, checked in and was told I need a re-entry visa. So was brought to the immigration to fill up forms and paid 3k yen as stamp duty. I was actually being given a "Professor" class visa entitled for multiple entry - so obviously the ground staff had misinterpreted the information. Anyway, good intention should be appreciated.

Arrived Singapore at 1515.
Took Nasi Bryani (how to spell?) and a bowl of laksa. Satisfied.

It's 1734 now, I am at gate 21 of terminal 3.
Quite hot and as a result I sweated a lot - hopefully nobody will sit next to me, I'm taking seat 47H.

Well, tomorrow will back to work after a few hours sleep.

Dewa, kiai wo irete atarashii suta-to wo gambarou!
