Melbourne Singapore Airlines Lounge

5 March 2017

Early morning late night flight

Snacking in the Singapore airlines lounge at Melbourne airport

Time for another months holiday. Its been 3 and a half months since I came back from Japan, so thats long enough of not being on holiday.
I am going back to Taiwan, for 28 days, and doing a full clockwise lap of the island interspersed with some back tracking, day trips and ascents of the middle.
It is not a very big place so I might walk.

Travelling to Taiwan is easier via Hong Kong or even direct, but instead I am going via Singapore, which is in the wrong direction really.
To make it even more interesting, my flight is leaving Melbourne at 1AM. So I am typing this now late the night before my early morning flight in the Melbourne airport lounge.

This will be my 4th time visiting Taiwan, which is 4 more times than most people, except those who still think its Thailand and tell me about how they got so drunk when they went that they did things they regret with what used to be a man.
Somewhat apt, as I am typing this it is gay and lesbian mardis gras night in Sydney, but I am not there, and Taiwan is not Thailand. Not even close. Also I have never been to the LGBBQTI Mardis Gras either, but its on tv news in here so it gets a mention, cause I have to remain topical.
Taiwan is the Republic of China. It is within the 9 dash line. Donald Trump pretended to be interested in supporting them, before he got smacked down by Xi Jinping.

I will of course be climbing up things, eating things, staring past the camera for unnecessary selfies, and typing shit that is partly true right here, twice a day, possibly 3 times in this day because its a long journey and I have nothing much else to do.

As I write this, the hypochondriac I have become lately due to near endless repeats of getting man flu is wondering if I am getting man flu. I have reasons to suspect this. Others have it. People on the Skybus had it. They coughed flecks of stomach lining onto me to prove it.
Time will tell.

Thats probably a long enough intro, which might get refined when I have more things to say. Except the site code has been updated, and the new format has been back ported to lots of old content. Mainly because I refuse to accept defeat and move to something standard that everyone else uses.
It should be more readable, work better on mobile and bigger screens, show you the describing text on the larger photos and allow you to paste links to all matter of social media and see it do clever stuff. At least thats the plan. Its probably broken.

It has become somewhat of a tradition for photo number 1 to be off my balcony.
Construction of a view blocking 40 level building is commencing. It will take at least a year to block my view. So I will have to move apartments in the next year or so.
Amusingly, someone drove a truck into the car park and smashed a fire sprinkler off and flooded the whole lobby, so theres giant fans and dehumidifiers trying to save the carpet down there right now.

The winner for the most boring photo of my entire trip is the fast pass for customs and whatever that Singapore Air gave me in Melbourne. Except there was no line anywhere so I didnt need it. Maybe I can ebay it.


Melbourne-Singapore Airlines-Lounge - As its after 11pm, I had already had dinner, but that doesnt mean I cant have some cake. Its balanced out with fruit and vegetables, all on one plate.

This is runner up for most boring photo of my trip.
