Esplanade Singapore

Esplanade, Singapore

Our vacation trip:

We were able to fly through space A from Yokota Air Base to Paya Lebar Airbase, Singapore for free. It was a 7-hr flight. I thought the plane was a C-130 but it's DC-8 (4 engine jet liner) thank God, it's not hehehe otherwise it if it's a C-130 we would be wearing earplugs and there would be no windows. We were only16 lucky passengers out of 32 seats available. So we enjoyed the free meals and snacks. That was an awesome trip!

We wandered around the city, the Orchard Road and the malls and we took the MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) and the bus, that's another experience!

That's our plane's shadow while we were still on the plane

ang galing ng shadow! i think i;; enjoy that trip too. biro mo free food. hahaha

Missy said...

Yup, it's free flight with free meals and snacks :-) with flight attendants helping us. If it's C-130- no flight attendants, you're on your own :-)

How long do you have to wait to get a free flight to your destination as a serviceman or a family member of one? Is a return trip assured? Great deal!

Garando said...

Free trip?!? WOW! So how long did you get to stay in Singapore? Ok mag food trip dun. Lalo na yung chili crab nila!
I agree with Reena, that's a great shot of the plane's shadow!

bertN- it depends, like for Singapore we arrived in Yokota Tuesday night and the available flight to Singapore was Thursday so we have to stay 2 nights just to get the free flight. The flights are available I think 72 hrs prior to the flight date

Garando- we just stayed in Singapore for 2 days and we bought the tickets Friday afternoon and the flight was Sunday 12am hehehe and we return to Singapore going back here and just stayed overnight in my Kuya's flat :-)
