Garuda Indonesia GA840 Denpasar-Singapore

Destination: Singapore Changi Airport WSSS
ETD: around 1530
ETA: around 1800
Flight: Garuda Indonesia GA840
Date of Journey: 28th June 2009
Seat: 6F

This is my second last trip on this sector as I am going to move back to Bali after this (anyway, that’s where I belong) for my own good. Tears aside as my farewell to Singapore will be presented on different post later this week.

I don’t want much bullshit so let’s go direct to this trip. Sorry, if you’re interested to losten about what happened in the fiscal and taxation department of Ngurah Rai international terminal, contact me and I’ll tell you the story.

Bon Appetite. Main course was pasta with chicken. Desserts were fruits (watermelon, pineapple and papaya) and Kit Kat. Drinks were mineral water and apple juice (Sunkist, previously Garuda used Buavita).

The very friendly hostess asked me whether I wanted additional drink. I opted for Coke and she handed me a cup with Coke in no time. Very friendly service, thumbs up for Garuda! In this picture though, I had drunk half of the cup.

Since Garuda had not yet introduced their brand new “Garuda Experience”, so the only entertainment available back then was this little screen featuring Just for Laughs and commercials.

The sky with a few editing (thanks to Picasa), should be above Java Sea by then

This trip report marks the end of an era of me living here in Singapore. But shed no tears as there is possibility that I may go to Middle East particularly Israel, Russia and Spain for WYD2011. I would like to thank Garuda for the pleasant experience (and the frequent flyer miles too!). I hope you’ll really be upgraded to 4-star airlines in the coming year.

And that’s my trip report for now. Look out for my next trip report on my journey home to Bali. Hopefully I can go to some exotic destinations across Indonesia as well such as Wamena, Larantuka, Maumere, Timika and many more. Also, look out for my hottest post that would change my life, my new school coming up in the next weeks on Apa Kabar Bram (sounded like Today Tonight or A Current Affair promotion).

I’ll see you then.
