Good evening from Singapore! I’m presently in transit on QF009 from Melbourne to London, and am in Singapore for about 60 minutes. I was hoping to post pictures of the phenomenal tasting menu I had aboard, but that will have to wait, since the internet here is far too slow.
I’ll share one quick lesson, though. The flight from Melbourne to Singapore took 7hr30min, and I was offered pajamas shortly after takeoff, which I changed into immediately, despite it being a day flight. As we approached Singapore the seatbelt sign wasn’t turned on until seven minutes before landing, and for whatever reason I made the decision not to change out of my pajamas. They were so comfortable and it was late at night, so I figured I’d stay in my pajamas, go to the first class lounge, take a quick shower, get back on the plane, and sleep.
What the hell was I thinking? You know those high school girls that fly with shorts that read “PINK” on their rear, wear bunny slippers, carry massive pillows, and pack about 10 pounds worth of snacks and 18 gossip magazines for a 52 minute flight? Well, I felt like one of them as I walked through the terminal in my Qantas pajamas.
The funny thing is, the reaction was actually the worst in the lounge. I got looks of pure horror from just about every person in the lounge.
There’s a simple lesson here — don’t friggin’ wear your pajamas in an airport, let alone in the lounge. No clue what I was thinking, but I certainly learned the hard way…
