London-Cambridge-London-Paris-London, July '11: The Honeymoon Begins

Barely 48 hours after the wedding and there we were – flying off for our honeymoon! Wheee! Our flight was set to take off from Penang International Airport at 9.15PM the Monday after the wedding and would bring us down South to Singapore before bringing us back up North and straight on till morning toward our honeymoon destination – London.


As always, things happen when I fly. -_-''' We left the house much later than planned and ended up getting stuck in a massive jam all the way toward the airport. We were so late that when we arrived, we had to split up in order to divide and conquer. The Husband made a gold-medal-worthy 200m dash to check us in while I gave proper goodbyes to Mee and Dee (they gave us a ride to the airport) and handled the luggage bags.


Thank goodness, we managed to
check ourselves in on time and
so... the journey begins. =)


This first leg of the journey wasn't very eventful or memorable for me cos we were superbly late and boarding was like, NOW, NOW, NOW by the time we arrived at the gate. So before I knew it, I was walking through the gates with my fair-sized trolley bag, getting all buckled up in my seat, and headed for Singapore with my two-day-old husband by my side.


Singapore!


Our transit in Singapore gave us a grand total of 40 minutes between touchdown and our next take-off. But with all the taxiing on the runway, we ended up with only 20-minutes between arrival at Terminal 2 of Singapore's Changi International Airport, and boarding at Gate A5 of Terminal 3.


Sitting down with our tickets to London and waiting for the
inter-terminal Skytrain to bring us from Terminal 2 to Terminal 3.


Terminal 3 at Singapore's Changi International Airport.


Same spot, different orientation.


Upon arriving at Terminal 3, we made a mad dash to the airport money changer to get us some Singapore Dollars. Like, just $5 SGD. Yes, $5 SGD. Hahaha. Wondering why? Well, don't laugh just yet. Cos this was a very important step that was necessary for what we planned to do next...

...AND THIS WAS WHAT THAT
MAD RUSH WAS ABOUT! =D




Airport Curry Laksa! Hahahaha. I know, I know. 20 minutes between flights and we can go through the trouble of changing money just to stop and eat hawker food. Penangites really Penangites lah, I tell you. Non-stop thinking about food only. =p




Gobbled that down in less than 5-minutes (it wasn't as nice as I remembered -_-) and started running like mad donkeys toward Gate A5 with our carry-on luggage in tow. Haha. More on the flight in my next post. Stay tuned! =D
