Where has Joanne gone?


It has been a long time since I updated my blog. Here’s a glimpse of what happened while I was gone.

At Singapore Changi Airport

At Singapore Changi Airport, traveling to the other side of the globe for a short holiday!

7 hours later at Narita International Airport, Tokyo. Had no idea that DFS items bought in Singapore are not allowed on board transit flights. The lady at the security scan area was so hostile and wanted to open my airport sealed up bag of products. I refused to let her do so and eventually spoke to a much nicer man from the information counter who advised me to run and have the items checked in.

7 hours later at Narita International Airport, Tokyo. Had no idea that DFS items bought in Singapore, sealed and with proof of receipt are not allowed on board transit flights. The Japanese lady at the security scan area was so hostile and wanted to cut open the see-through bag. I refused to let her do so and eventually spoke to a much nicer man from the information counter who advised me to run and have the items checked in. Either there should be some kind of international understanding for DFS-bought items or Singapore Changi Airport Nuance-Watson staff should have advised me, otherwise it would have been S$400+ worth of products gone! I wouldn't have been too happy with that.

12 hours later, at LAX (Los Angeles International Airport). I was so stifled from being in the cabin but there was another domestic flight to take! LA is 15 hours behind Singapore time.

12 hours later, at LAX (Los Angeles International Airport). I was so stifled from being in the cabin but there was yet another domestic flight to take. It wasn't for another hour before I finally got to Vegas. The Southwest plane take off was so steep, the landing so bumpy I was sick the entire journey. Not exactly a good way to start the holiday! Las Vegas is 15 hours behind Singapore time.

Upon returning to Singapore, I was off to Bali for a shoot 15 hours later.

A lot has been going on for me, and my body clock has just been turned upside down. I do hope to share with everyone my trip and experiences soon. Meanwhile, for those of who aren’t following me on Twitter, you might want to look for me there, because updates are more frequent as long as there’s internet connection. 🙂

Take care and have a good weekend!

  14. hey joanne, is this trip for filming “Your hands in mine” ?

  15. haha…kinda asking the same queation(ur title) myself for the past 2 weeks…

  16. Hey, 活下去 is showing again! Haha. I liked your role very much in that show 😀 Will continue to support you all the way! 🙂

  17. Wow, that’s a lot of traveling in a short time.

    Usually Narita is very cooperative when I’ve gone through there, although from what I’ve read, Japan does ban some items. I think most airports will have restrictions on fluids now. Good think you were able to check the items in. 🙂

    Did you get to sit with the orangutans in Singapore? I did and everyone here in the US asked me about them. 🙂

    Okie doke – chat with you later.

    Walter

  18. Oh man it’s cool to travel so many places at once! (:

  19. Hi Joanne,

    I’m one of your fan (male) and am quite dissapointed that you have started a relationship with Bobby. I’m sure he’s a nice guy but conservative channel 8 fans like me just don’t approve of such SPG relationships. It would be good if you could keep it low profile so that it doesn’t affect your fans. But posting pictures of you going to Vegas certainly doesn’t make it low profile… I guess we all know who’s your companion for the trip..

    I hope you put career first Joanne, stay focused for you are still young its not too late to get into a relationship when you are in your late 20s …

  20. so there’s a bobby with this trip?

  40. Hi Joanne,

    I hope you won’t mind to share with me about your first experience of traveling alone. Do you feel afraid and from where do you get the nerve? What else if something happen? BTW,I am afraid of traveling alone.Hope you can give me a advice or two… 😛

  41. Dear Joanne, how was your trip to Los Angeles & Los Vegas? I have been to Los Angeles & Los Vegas? By the way, what is the temperature in Los Angeles & Los Vegas? But too bad I didn’t go to Disneyland. Actually there is nothing much about Disneyland. I planning to go visit Los Angeles & Los Vegas again:)
