Arrived to the Gold Coast Airport at 7am to check-in for our flight at 9:00am.
After reaching our boarding gate, we waited… and waited. Then it was announced that were was a half hour delay, then another half hour delay, then a 2 hour delay, and then we were indefinitely delayed until further notice.
1pm came and went and we were still sitting around the tiny terminal. The only restaurant around was making a ton of money and I was surprised to see how patient the masses were.
Kids were still happily getting along
Others just chilling out and taking it as it comes
Eventually, Michael’s iPhone was dying so we hung out behind the Jetstar desk to charge up
Aww, the sad face!
I also don’t understand the lopsided gate numbers – it doesn’t look good!
Finally 2:30pm … we were boarding! 6 hours late!
We were randomly upgraded from Economy (blue) to Super Seat (yellow) with more room!
The flight wasn’t too bad, but they wouldn’t give you free water. We had to pay S$4 for a 330mL bottle of water!
Someone was not happy about it!
Check this woman out… a whole row to herself!
We finally arrived to Singapore around 9:30pm local time (we were initially supposed to be there at 3:30pm!) Bing and his girlfriend LiHuan picked us up from the airport and took us to East Coast Lagoon Food Village to eat local hawker food!
Bing and Lihuan!
Tried lots of dishes including: grilled stingray, carrot cake, chicken wings, char siu noodles and satay meat kebabs! Yum, thanks guys!
By the time we checked into Moon Hotel, it was already 12am. Called it a night and went to bed ready for a full day of activities tomorrow!
