Time to say bye bye to Singapore. Packing was hellish! Not because we shopped too much, we didn’t even shop but were “forced” to bring back all those things which caused my sis’ luggage to overshoot the weight quota. Luckily they didn’t fine her -.-” Phew…
Dragged our fully packed luggage(went there with only half the luggage empty) and hand luggage(went there with only some essentials in the hand luggage) all the way from Sembawang to the airport. It was horrible especially with my right hand feeling so painful since the night before. I relied on my left hand only. -.-”
Nothing much to say about the wait to board the plane but a lot to say about the passengers. I really don’t know how to say them.
There’s a group of uncles and couple of aunties, boarding the plane with lots of duty-free alcohols and musical instruments. As you know the seats were assigned when you check-in. You should just sit at your assigned seat. If you are given a seat at the emergency exit, it means you are qualified to sit there as only those that are deemed strong enough by the check-in agent can sit there so in that in case of emergency, you can help open the emergency door.
Yet… These uncles were really… I don’t know how to say them. We sat right in front of them. They sat there then the air crew explained the procedures about the emergency exit. They listened and responded to the air crew that they understood what was briefed. Then not long later, one of the uncles stood up, left the seat and then out of sudden an aunty(I don’t think she’ll have the energy to open the emergency door when needed -.-“) came and sat at that uncle’s place -.-” For goodness sake, it’s the emergency exit!
She sat down and the air crew saw her and told her that she’s sitting at the emergency exit. The air crew asked the other uncle where’s the earlier uncle went to and that uncle answered that the earlier uncle changed his seat with this aunty coz the earlier uncle wanted to sit with his wife. The aunty just looked at her and smiled and responded happily like as there’s nothing wrong for her to sit there and was pretty excited coz she got to sit with her man.
I saw the air crew’s face, looked so stress and fed up but still explained patiently to the aunty about the emergency procedures. The aunty obviously didn’t understand anything kept giggling while the air crew explained the procedures to her. Then the aunty said, “Why are you people talking to me about this? Why target me? I don’t understand a word at all hehehehe… Brief them enough.” OMG! I almost wanted to bang my head to the window. *sweat*
Then the other uncle that didn’t belong to the group said to the aunty, “because this is the emergency exit that’s why they briefed you about the procedures, they briefed us earlier on, you see the door here?”. The aunty just responded with “Oooo… No wonder.”
Poor air crews… Really pity them. I do not fly much but I’ve been pretty lucky for not encountering passengers like these in other flights be it MAS or Air Asia. On the flight to and from Singapore, I saw and listened with my own eyes and ears these things for the first time of my flying life. Consider this a new experience for me hahaha…
So that’s all about my trip. Not quite satisfied with this trip as my plan was almost ruined but managed to save a lot all thanks to the almost-ruined plan.
