Arrival at Airport

I was supposed to return in January 2011, decided to preponed the flight to return early. Was charged a fee to change flight of about SG$ 150.

Arrived early at the Airport by taxi to Terminal 1.

Check-In

Check-in counter was Row 5 for the flight which was open, checked my bag for the flight, collected the boarding card and headed for the viewing area as there was enough time to spare.
