Review: American Flagship Lounge Dallas DFW

While my flight to Hong Kong was only departing at 10:40AM, I got to the airport at around 4:30AM, so that I could get to the Flagship Lounge right when it opened (so that I could photograph it while it was still empty). Over the past several years,…

Review: The Jewel Changi Airport

As a kid I used to love going to malls. I'm not sure why, exactly, because I've never been into shopping. Over the years my desire to visit malls changed, and at this point I think the only time I visit malls is when I'm in parts of the Middle East/Asia,…
