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 – the perks of being a wallflower

RIS - the perks of being a wallflower

A review in SMS – the perks of being a wallflower

IN LINE at Kinokuniya at Takashimaya, I saw this book on the shelf by the counter.  A voice behind me said, “Oh, they’ve made the movie already!”  The voice cut past me, picked one and brandished it to her friends.

I read the blurb at the back cover of “the perks of being a wallflower” and felt like reading a part of just about anybody’s life when people cared only about what they used to be.  Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller are perfectly cast.  (Ezra was amazing in “We Should Talk About Kevin.”)

Music, in mix tapes and vinyl, hold the movie together, especially when Charlie sings to “All Out of Love”.  Crowded House’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over” drove me insanely sentimental.  With the book, I laughed, I cried.  Now with the movie too.

The perks of being a moviegoer?  I get to enjoy a couple of slices of pizza, the cholesterol, not to mention the guilt, I washed down with iced green tea.



“Why do nice people choose the wrong people to date?”

“You see things.  And you understand.  You’re a wallflower.”

I saw the book on the shelf by the counter at Kinokuniya at Takashimaya. The one beside it, Cloud Atlas, has also been recently adapted into film.

I just had to get myself a copy! For a few days, it became my reading material of choice during my MRT rides to and from work.
