It has been over a month since the trip, however the memories are still vivid in my mind.

 

My very first FREE trip with the Top Leaders Circle…

 

Happy sangat because this was our first trip since we got kids.  So kira macam 2nd honeymoon la after almost 6 years of marriage.  And it was FREE!

We were scheduled to depart from KLIA to Brisbane via Singapore on the 13th of February 2014 at around 10pm.  After sorting out the logistics for our kids, we finally left for the airport at around 5pm… Yes during the rush hours…

 

Alhamdulillah sempat sampai airport by 6pm at the time scheduled by our Tour Guide to collect the itinerary and travel details.

Monopod time…. This is the trip that introduces me to the meaning of “group selfie”…

The trip from KLIA to Changi took about 45 minutes and this time around we were booked on the Silk Air flight that was code sharing with SIA to Brisbane.

Hubby and I didn’t manage to get our dinner at KLIA and was so thankful that the Company had arranged for everyone on the trip to receive a SGD20 Changi Airport voucher that entitles us to redeem it at any store in Changi Airport. Alhamdulillah… I was seriously shocked as never in my 10 years working life that the companies that I had worked for actually gave me vouchers/pocket money for me to spend during airport transits. Mind you I had travelled quite a bit during my time in one of the GLCs and had spent quite a number of hours in Changi Airport… but I had to spend my own pocket money la kan…

Since there were 2 of us, so we had SGD40 to spend. Unfortunately, our connecting flight was due to depart in an hour time.  Hence, there was no time to spare to roam the mall, though I wished I could peaked into the Pandora store or even all the other great stores that they have in Changi Airport Mall.  So we just spent 1 voucher for iced coffee and sandwiches and saved the other for our trip back home…

Our connecting flight to Brisbane was a Singapore Airline plane.  I super love flying with Singapore Airline as their service is top notch.  I remember the time when I flew on Singapore Airline to Japan to visit my sister and they actually served Haagen Daaz ice cream for dessert! And during another trip to Istanbul few years back, I had the privileged to travel on Business Class as it was a company paid trip.  The meal served on board during that trip was fabulous!

It was actually great that the Company had arranged for a night flight as we would be able to start the next day fresh and ready to discover Gold Coast.  I was made to understand that all the trips are arranged as such to maximise the time for the tour. Memang best and untung sangat travel with the Company.  Everything has been arranged for us from the flight, transit, transport, accommodation, food and also programs. We just have to follow the timing, bawak baju and duit for shopping aje… I LIKE!

Wait for my next entry on Day 2 in Gold Coast, Australia…

Till then, enjoy the video…
