Flashback ... our journey to Hangzhou ... :)

I realised I have taken lots of photos using my phone, besides those you guys saw in my blog which were taken using my camera. Thus, I was contemplating whether should I blog out these pictures which, shows 'the other' side of the trip. OK la.. since I don't have much to write lately, I thought let's create a pictorial blog this week. Hahahaha... Let's call this an encore of my recent trip...muahahahaha...

 Although our flight was schedule to depart at 6pm, we have to assemble at the tour agency's HQ in JB by 8am. Luckily it was just a 15 mins drive from our place compared to those who came miles away from Segamat, Kluang and etc.  The check-in time is around 2.30pm.  We took their coach to Changi Airport.

While I selfie with my kid 
We were quite free and also bored at the airport, having to wait so long thus more picture taking, after check-in to the departure hall. It was around Xmas then and the decor was nice.

 Finally, the wait was over and after an extremely stringent check at the airport, which I really appreciated it for safety purpose, we were on board the JetstarAsia, which is a budget airline. It was drizzling then while we experienced a few turbulence after taking off shortly.

 My kid was interested in those in-flight shopping catalogue and he eyed a model-scale of the plane we are taking. I told I get it for him on the return trip, which I did. He then check out the menu and got himself a teriyaki chicken rice. I got some sandwiches where I shared with my little princess, as well as nasi lemak for my wifey and a cup of Bon-Cafe kopi.

His pack of Teriyaki chicken which he said it's delicious...LOL

I bet he was hungry ...though dinner taken.
 Since we can't really sleep in the early evening , I luckily downloaded some movies and we watched ant-man , played some games on our phone as well as took some short naps. And, before we knew it, though my kid complaint of the 'long' journey, we finally reached Hangzhou International Airport at around 11pm. It was also raining too and it was so cold.

Due to the rain, the pixs are kinda blur 

Spotted a scoot here clearly next to us.
 We quickly got our sweater and jackets up in the airport before going out of the airport in a climate from 3-5 celsius that night. Then, it was about a 45 minutes ride to the 4-star hotel in Hangzhou. The hotel was not that impressive as well as slow wi-fi but we were already tired. We also needed to unpack and remind ourselves to get some sleep as we needed to wake up early at 7am for breakfast and start our itinerary. Most of us probably slept 5 hours and we did nap a lot in the coach the next day.

Checking out the toilet ... 

Before I left for the trip, I did have a nice meal with my colleagues at the Hollandse Club in Singapore. It was a club which the Dutch patronised and somehow my colleague has membership, I guess it belongs to his wife's company.
I had a refreshing Apple Cider

And some corn beef set 
OK, Part 2 in the next post... mostly pictures and different from I have blogged before.

 Have a good week!

  1. It is nice to flashback right, indulging in enjoyable recollection of your travel trip to Hangzhou, sometimes I like to flashback my travel trips too

    For budget airlines, I like Tiger Airways, their in-flight meals are nice

    1. The problem is that with the phone, it's easier to snap photos on the fly while you needed to take out your large chunky camera....hahaha. Having said that, camera still give the best resolutions and qualities.

  8. wah!!! the flight was 6pm but you need to report to the tour agency at 8am??!!! that is a bit too early don't you think?? so what time did you arrive at Changi Airport?? need to wait till 2:30pm to check-in, and then after that waiting for boarding pulak.. so you basically spent the whole day inside the airport only, and that is counted as 1 day of your itinerary.. eih, rugi lah like that~~

    1. Can't blame them as by the time all the folks arrived, it's almost 9am. Then, there's the congested CIQ and we also gotta get down to stamp our passports. It's a weekend and the queue is usually long. We reached there around 12pm.

  10. Usually I combine my phone and my camera pictures together, because sometimes I lazy to take out my camera, but sometimes I would feel like taking pictures with my camera.

  11. I dont mind reading the flashback of your China holiday.

    One thing about holiday is the long flight. Quite tiring especially travelling with kids. Luckily you have movie and game to entertain yourself. Dont the airplane has those in-flight movies and games?? I remember we had those when we flew using Singapore airline to Korea few years ago. My then 4-yo girl complained the flight too short for her to enjoy the games and movies. Lol.

    1. This was a budget flight, so they don't have the in-flight entertainment, else my kids will be super busy. Thanks for reading but it will be a pictorial post, different from the previous ones.
