Let’s point out the obvious, first. It’s not the end of the world since the chargers were forgotten. I’ve already bought an essential traveling charger for both Thailand and traveling, so I think I’m saved.
And with that being said, SINGAPORE IS HERE! I woke up excited as hell this morning, but also nervous. Are you always the one who feels anxious before traveling? Like you think of those worse case scenarios (of course – I got hit with the charger situation – which is actually super funny)? I’m not sure what it is, but it could be the “sorry, sir. We don’t have a booking under your name” to “ahhhhhh you have to pay me for overstay!” Of course one of those would never happen (the overstay) because I’m not an idiot, but the “what if” situation about the booking scares the hell out of me.
No lines, no problems, and Bangkok Airport has achieved ONCE AGAIN.
Can I tell you something hilarious? Ok, I was on the escalator, I looked up and this girl had on shorts that were showing her ass cheeks. I kid YOU NOT! Like her ass was hanging out! I couldn’t believe it! I laughed and told myself, “come on, man! This ain’t America!”
Anyways, I always manage to see something crazy as hell. I love living, loving, and laughing. She looked behind her with a smirk on her face. I said, “too desperate for my liking, babe.”
Anywho, some Pizza for breakfast, short wait and then the boarding.
While I was sitting on the plane, I felt a couple of taps on my shoulder. I looked up and there was a vague recognition kinda thing going on. He said, “are you the guy that goes to The Lab?” I laughed out loud and responded, “ahhh the man from Philadelphia! Evan! What’s up, man?” The conversation ensued about jobs, visas, and the Philadelphia 76ers.
Remarkably the plane was on time. This plane, which was a cool ass A320, took off and it sounded like heaven. Something about those engines makes the plane feel sexier (seats were excellent); in addition, I’m giving a big shout out to JetStar Asia!
The toilets, however, were abysmal because of the Chinese tourists. There was crap (literally) all over the toilet. It’s like they went inside the lavoratory and squeezed at will in any direction. Just horrendous beyond comprehension.
And shortly after, big shout out to my main man Abshek (probably butchered the spelling) who was sitting right next to me on the plane and spoke only after descending (lol). Awesome native Singaporean who talked Ubers closure (bought out by Grab and an Indonesian taxi service), traveling to BKK, and LinkedIn. He’s a Gary Vee listener, too! Could you believe that?!
We landed, I bid my farewells to my samaritans, and I made way to immigration and the rail line that ultimately took me to this hotel right here.
All I want to do is say I’m grateful! There’s a lot more that’s coming soon, so you better brace yourself!
