Days 107-109/365: Apr 19, 2014

The last few days were stretched out. Or shortened. Stretched because it took about 31 hours after we left our home until we arrived at my mom’s house. Shortened because all of that happened during April 18. Time zones and viewpoints can be two very different things. As travel was my primary goal in the recent days, I am now catching up on my thankful posts:

Day 107 – April 17

I’m thankful for:

  • Getting packed.
  • A great reason to travel back to our homeland.
  • Finding a midnight snack of a crispy chicken sandwich with a sesame bun. Delicious.

Loved the soft and slightly bun with the crunchy and spicy chicken. Normally I’m not a big fan of fast food, but this was delicious.

108 – April 18

I’m thankful for:

  • Answers to prayer that the toddler would do well with the long flights.
  • An awesome playground in the airport during our layover.
  • A safe arrival in the US of A.

There’s nothing like having a toddler tire himself out running around excitedly before the next long flight.

Day 109: Apr 19, 2014

I’m thankful for:

  • Socks (something I never use back in the warm SG climate).
  • Meeting my nephew for the first time!
  • The Uncle allowing his daughter and nephew to be his sous chefs.

Both the munchkins kept snitching dough and pizza sauce. The chef took it in stride.


Singapore AirShow 2012

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about Andrew, it’s that he has a sweet spot in his heart for planes. Air and Space museums are to Andrew what candy shops are to little children. I have been impressed with his depth of knowledge of different types of planes.

Needless to say, when we discovered that there was going to be an airshow in Singapore, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity.

Singapore Airshow 2012

Apparently it is the biggest Airshow that occurs in Asia! Who knew? No complaints here.

Our tickets were for Saturday, February 18. To get there we trekked out to Changi Airport and took a shuttle to the Airshow. We made it in time for the afternoon acrobatic demonstration!

First of was a pair of two jets:

Flying in for their debut!

Simultaneously right side up and upside down!

Did I mention they were loud?

After the two jets came an acrobatic plane:

Tail-spinning air acrobatics

Then a set of 6 fighter jets from the Australian Air Force:

High flying formations (of course it was drizzling, so my camera lens had marks on it)

Outdoor exhibition:

With that, the acrobatic show was done, and we headed over to where they had a plethora of air vehicles from around the world.

Planes make Andrew Happy

They had commercial as well as military aircraft. Some of the countries that contributed their aircraft to the displays included: Singapore, Australia, Malaysia, Italy, and USA!

Even the US Navy had a plane there!

The Huge C-5 Galaxy

Once we had our fill of the aircraft outside we went inside to the exhibition hall.

Indoor exhibition:

Mini-boeing aircraft

There wasn’t a whole lot to see inside, except for:

Airshow Storm Troopers

What a fun note to end on!
