My Experience On The Airbus 350

MY FIRST TIME TRAVELING ALONE was to Aberdeen in 2019.   And now alone again in 2021 to a different country under trying times as in this pandemic

While I was preparing for my long trip, I was slightly discouraged by the alarming advice which I heard.. did I make the right move traveling at this time?  Long hours on the plane, 16 hours from Singapore to San Francisco, putting me at high risk among the passengers, breathing in the same air throughout the journey.... kind of scary... only consolation is that we passengers have to do our swab test 72 hours before we board the plane.  What if we contract the virus after our swab test?  That sounds kind of possible too... 

In the plane itself, we have to put on our masks at all times except during meals.  While boarding, I felt more encouraged when there were only a small number of us.  I was supposed to be sitting at th3e window seats, sandwiched between the front couple and a single guy behind me.  Before taking off, I asked the stewardess whether I could sit at another row which has 4 empty seats and away from other passengers and she said of course, I could.  Quickly I landed myself with the row of empty seats, where I could put my stuff on my left and right.  

Throughout the journey, I wore my mask when awake and only my face shield when I slept.  I watched 3 movies, went endless times to the toilet cos I drank a lot of water to keep myself hydrated and 4 packets of snacks.  Yes, I slept a lot cos I took half of the Novamin to relax myself... 

A very comfortable flight I would say, I would certainly go for SIA Airbus 350 for ultra long flights is definitely very worth it... their seats are much bigger than the normal economy ones, with ample space in front and leg rest as well.  No wonder I slept a lot... LOL...

  1. It is good to see you Claire! I had been wondering what happened to you. Glad you are safely there, and I hope you have a great visit!

  2. Envy you lah...but so happy for you!!!

    I can't fly long haul - my feet will swell like an elephant's, poor kidney function, they say.

    You look like you've put on a bit of weight? Bet you will put on even more there. LOL!!! Have fun, enjoy yourself to the fullest - you sure deserve it...take care and God bless!!!

  3. I hope your trip was enjoyable. Keep safe!

  4. Enjoy your days in SF! stay safe and looking forward to more posts from the Golden Gate City!

  5. I flew SIA Airbus 350 both ways Singapore- London. We were the only Asian on board! That means the Westerners like this Airbus.
    Enjoy your trip and fruit harvesting!!

  6. Enjoy bonding with your family in San Francisco. Looking forward to more posts from you. Stay safe!

  7. PTL for your safe flight. Have a good time!

  8. Sitting in the plane for long haul trips is so tiring. At least you can sleep. Me, I cannot sleep at all. Please enjoy your holiday!

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

First Day In The Royal Caribbean Cruise To Mexico

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT.... gently down the sea....  Royal Caribbean, it is my second time following this giant vessel, the first time was from Singapore to Phuket, that was a very nice cruise.  So when my son mentioned that he found a good deal online, this time to Mexico, I agreed without hesitation.  Let's Go! A three nights stay with food and lodging only cost around $250 per person with at least one senior in per room.  Meals were either buffet style or fine dining, we can choose and cafes were opened 24 hours for us to rest and relax.  How not to resist... LOL...  And so here we are... just one week after landing in US, I was on the sea....  Looks small from afar...  It was a giant vessel with at least 14 floors.... On the way to embarking after Custom Clearance...  Our room for the next three nights....  Small and cosy.... And adjoining to my son's family room through a door...  The one with balcony cost a bit more...  A short briefing about safety after we checked in....
