What a dizzying lot of photos... you do hop around Asia. I really enjoyed that, your pretty well verses with the A380 then... You must have notched up quite a few runs.

You'll have depleated the South China Seas fish stocks with all those great seafood meals though. They all looked of a great standard and SQs seemed better than MH.

Many thanks for your pictures. Most insiteful

Nice report and pictures!

However I wouldn´t have minded only one report per leg and not the same leg several times, I can't even count the number of times you did the HKG-SIN-HKG route  Wink

- Must agree, got a bit confused on where and when at one point!

It was in Singapore. I was on my auntie's car so don't know where is it actually, but seems somewhere near east coast IIRC.

PS: Auntie said this kind of Durian shop was very expensive indeed

Love the non-stop SQ medley. Seem like I can't get enough of SQ!!

You did hop over SIN-HKG like taking subway from Manhattan to Queens.

BTW, I am sure that the pretentious "Durian Shop" would be so expensive that you could actually afford to fly to Thailand/Indonesia and get them even fresher! Oh, you will earn frquent flyer miles too  

Thanks for sharing.
