Cebu to Singapore via Silk Air.
Silk Air is the regional airline operated by Singapore Airlines. Their Cebu ground staff was very nice and kindly informed me that the flight would be delayed by about 2 1/2 hours. By the way, do these queens know we can see them lip-synching Beyonce through the glass doors (complete with hand gestures).
And for those of you who raised their eyebrows at the sight of ECONOMY CLASS - and you know who you are - please! I'm not Malu Fernandez.
Anyway, it's never a good sign when the first announcement from the Captain is "For those of you who were complaining of the OIL SMELL, earlier......."
When we finally arrived, whatever it was that was giving off that smell finally "crapped out" (direct quote from da Captain) and we had to wait a few minutes before the doors could finally be opened. But the staff was really nice and patient and the seats were better than PAL.
Just a few first impressions of Singapore (which I haven't visited since 1979 - when I was but 4 years of age -ha!):
It's not small.
They drive on the left side.
