Boarding our colourful plane to Bali
My unforgettable overseas trips.
My first trip to Bali via Bandung. The tiny Bandung airport was holding an Air Show which caused a massive traffic jam. We were stuck in the jam for 2 hours when normally it would take just 20 minutes to get to the airport by car.
Most of the passengers arrived at the airport more than an hour late. It was pouring cats and dogs too, thus some flights were delayed. Luckily our plane was waiting for us. We were able to board the flight to Bali. A plane crashed into the runway an hour after we left, killing the pilot.
Amazing Indonesia. :D
Taiwan Bullet train (Taiwan High Speed Rail)
My first ride on a bullet train from Taipei to Kaohsiung. The bullet train was travelling at a speed around 300km/h. Kaohsiung is 345km (220 mile) from Taipei. We reached Kaohsiung in an hour plus. Oh Boy, I was glad my bum wasn't numb from all that sitting. :D
The HSR is amazingly fast, affordable and comfortable.
mobile snack cart on the bullet train
I rarely have the chance to travel by train for long distances in Singapore, in order to have a memorable journey I simply follow the locals - buy a drink and a snack from the mobile snack cart lady. Oh, and I also bought a lunchbox (火车便当) ;)
