Merry Christmas from Singapore

Right now I'm in Singapore writing this and it's Christmas day.  I bought a ton of chocolates in the Oslo airport for friends and family, then had some food at the airline lounge and boarded the plane.  The meals were good (lunch according to Oslo time and breakfast according to Bangkok time) and the service was great, I was even addressed by name.  My flight was great and I had fantastic views of the skies flying from Oslo to Bangkok.  The sunset view was amazing from the air, it's too bad I didn't take any pictures.  Arriving in Bangkok I had even more food in the airline lounge before boarding the aircraft to Singapore.  My only gripe is that the plane departed a bit later than what it's supposed to and I arrived about half an hour later.  That and I had to drink all my fizzy apple drink while transiting because no liquids are allowed.  But I arrived in one piece and so did my luggage.  The Bangkok airport is now big, I don't remember it being that big but it took me a while to get from one end to the other end and there's many shops along the way.  I just didn't have the time to look at them.

Here's a photo I took from the air when we were close to arriving into Singapore.

My mum and a close friend, his wife and newborn son were there to welcome me at the airport, so that was nice.  Also it's nice to see the sun at 4pm!  You don't realise how much you miss it until you move up north.  We had lunch at the airport and I had chicken rice. :)

Oh I came home to this... my boxes of clothes and other items that I had ordered!

I'll write about Latvia soon.  But now it's time to sleep!
