Singapore Museum Clarke Quay Airport Lounge

10 April 2011

The longest day

Today is a day where I have to check out of my hotel by 11am, and my flight is not until 11pm.
Its hot, but at least the hotel will mind my bags.
I no doubt will end up at the airport hours and hours early, my goal is to kill time until 5pm at least.
In hindsight, it would have been a good day to go to Malaysia, as that took up a lot of time and I could have done more there, but uncertainty about getting back in time would make that risky.

Instead, I decided to go to a museum, you havent been subjected to any museums on this trip yet, and normally I visit every single museum that there is, so be grateful.

The museum I chose is the National Museum of Singapore, because it was apparently the biggest, yet it was small and pretty dissapointing.
It was however free today for some reason which is a bonus! Its normally $10.

And then another wrap around movie, but im almost sure this one never started, I sat there for a while, it was nice and cool.
Finding a cool place was the main reason for going to a museum.

One thing I find strange, I never found anyone selling beef rendang at all!

This is apparently some scary guy from world of warcraft. The most hilarious guy was dressed as mario and came on and did a whole routine where he jumped and smashed on the ground just like Mario does.

As I have never been outside the airport here before, I have never checked in before. Theres an entirely different check in area for elite level frequent flyers. I didnt really like it, you have to sit down and chat with someone, why not just give me my ticket?
The advantage is you then get a different line for immigration etc.
Surprisingly, my bag never went through an xray check at all. Maybe it will at the gate, which is horrendous, happened in Bangkok, enjoy a 2 hour line up.

Best thing about checking in early after a long day walking around, the shower in the first class lounge. I enjoyed a 30 minute shower with the multiple jets that shoot at all angles.

The actual food service is not as good as most others, they periodically bring around different small meals like this one. They do have an ice cream and cake bar still though.
