Last time on SQ38 to LA

It’s not like I’m never coming to LA again but Singapore Airlines is going to stop the economy class for the straight flights to LA and NY. What’s up with that? Only people with money can fly direct? Oh well, so for lowly ranked officers like me who only fly economy class, means no more SQ38 for me :p Honestly though, after my private production house time when we flew the cheapest flights regardless of transits, SQ flights suit me just fine 🙂

I even had time to enjoy the spanking new T3 at the Changi International Airport. They have this grouped holding area for gates A1 – A5 that is a little unusual. It was nice and with efficient wireless I caught up on the latest episode of ANTM and I reckon I can get use to coming to the gate early 🙂

After 15 and a half hours, LAX immigration was efficient and quick … very unusual and for once, the traffic in LA was actually quite nice and it took me only 40minutes to get to my hotel in Santa Monica. Usually, it’s like an hour and a half :p Here’s home for the next 6 nights.

With meetings starting tomorrow, I won’t be spending much time in the room. As soon as I checked in and settled down, my hungry tummy was yearning for Real Food Daily 🙂 Yummy!!! It’s close to my hotel and took about a 10minutes walk where there was no seat even for one person at the counter. I had to wait for at least 25minutes for a table. So I ordered my favourite sandwich complete with my chai latte and chocolate cake to go and came back to enjoy it 🙂

Now I’m happy and full 🙂 Signing off from Santa Monica!!
