It is currently almost 3:30 am here in the Singapore airport. It should feel like 12:30 in the afternoon back home. But it doesn't. I feel quite awake, but still tired enough that I know I will be able to sleep on the next plane. I must be inbetween time zones, which is a-ok with me.
The majority of our team just ate at Burger King (which just seems silly when you're on the other side of the world and there are more interesting things to try), but I opted for the Cliff bar so that I don't start eating meals in the middle of the night. Better to get adjusted quickly to the 14 hour difference ya know? (To figure out the time for us, add 2 hours to your time, and then flip the am/pm and add a day). Example: 3:00 pm for you on the 13th = 5:00 am on the 14th for us.
All flights and travel have been good. Our day started on the 12th, with flying out of Fresno in the morning to LAX. Then we had our 19 hour flight to Singapore, with a brief stop in Narita, Japan (outside Tokyo) for gas. We got off the plane, looked around the airport, and I bought some bottled coffee drink that I had no idea what it was. It was delightful. I will post a picture of it later.
Now we are in Singapore, and are whittling the way the hours of the night before our plane to Chiang Mai, Thailand leaves in the morning.
This is a really cool airport. There are tons of computers around with free internet, free video games, massages chairs, a movie theater . . . and it's all beautiful too! Not what you'd normally think of for an airport.
Oh, and there's a Coffee Bean here! Hooray! I can't wait till it opens up. It's so fun to see one here . . . we don't have any in the central valley, so it's a luxury now :-)
So as I wait, I am drinking another random drink I bought. This is "MineShine" Finest Qaulity Milk Tea. It's also very yummy.
Till next time . . .
