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.

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.

One and a half days later, the team brought me back to Singapore to continue the shoot...

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!
