SQ918

SQ918 13 Wing

Just took off from Changi International Airport. I just always have to have a snap of the airplane’s wing against the land, the sea, and the sky.

IF YOU care for someone, it’s important to remember why they are in your life.

And everytime I’m up in the air that is exactly what I do.

I may have time for a movie – or a part of it (“Pitch Perfect” is on the cover of KrisWorld and “the perks of being a wallflower” and “Arbitrage” are also on the list!) – and most likely all the broadsheets on offer and a couple of magazines I’d pick up at times travel or any other book shop I pass by on the way to the gate.

SQ918 01 KrisWorld

Fat Amy is in the house!

But still, a lot of the three and a half hours I spend airborne is devoted to being breathless in anticipation of yet another homecoming.  And this feeling of being at home starts the very moment I get on board my Singapore Airlines flight.  Sweet.

SQ918 00 Panettone

On this trip, the Panettone was the most precious cargo.

 

SQ918 02 Longchamp Adidas

Before take-off, all carry-on luggage has to be stowed under the seat in front of you. I looked at my two bags and realized that I was traveling with a French and an Italian!

 

SQ918 05 Take-off and Wing

See you again soon, Lion City! … Before long, it was time to take off. I’ve always found my Singapore Airlines flights to keep their schedules really well.

 

SQ918 10 Wing

One of the views I love is when the sun breaks free from the clouds. So a photo is always requisite.

 

SQ918 03 KrisWorld Movies

The New Releases line-up has some of the best movies I’ve ever seen. I didn’t know which to start with.

 

SQ918 14 Fast Facts

The Philippines is featured on the latest issue of KrisFlyer. I love this boxed feature on my country’s “fast facts”.

 

SQ918 18 Passport

Before the food arrives, I make sure that I fill out all the disembakation forms required at the NAIA.

 

SQ918 19 Passport

I love my complimentary Singapore Airlines leather passport holder!

 

SQ918 20 Food

Yehey! The food arrives. That happens to be my third can of Campbell’s Tomato Juice! I always love it when they say, “Would you like the whole can?”

 

SQ918 21 Food

I asked for the fish with vegetables! Delish!

 

SQ918 25 Tissot

I wore one of my Tissots on this trip. And yes, a Charriol.

 

SQ918 26 Tissot

Right on time, we’re taxiing down the runway at the NAIA.

 

SQ918 28 NAIA Arrival

I’m home!

Review in SMS – Pitch Perfect

19 11 2012

ONCE IN a while a movie comes along that restores your faith in the fact that a celluloid treat can just be that – a treat – and not exactly an excruciating cerebral challenge that can burn all the calories from your two slices of pepperoni pizza… long before you’ve actually taken the last bite.

PITCH PERFECT, starring Anna Kendrick (to me of “Up in the Air” fame, not exactly “Twilight”) is exactly that!  Even in the age of Glee and Smash on TV, this movie still bursts with freshness and excitement, matched only by the beating of my heart, threatening to leap off of my chest.

Anna Kendrick, whose career has been part critical acclaim, part commercial sugar, is the movie’s certified star.  I didn’t think of her as a singer before, though the fullness in her sometimes chirpy voice should’ve clued me in.  The many songs bring to life the movie’s title, but nothing as much as Bruno Mars’ “Just The Way You Are” did.

Well, until they topped that with a finale song even I didn’t see coming.  It’s true about the movies, “the endings are always the best!”
