Singapore and Samy

I was in Singapore for a one day business trip.

I like Changi Airport. They have free local calls. Free internet. Free movie screenings. A nice sunflower garden and a nice mini ‘park’. It is ironic that Changi Airport seems have more plants in the airport than our KLIA, considering the fact that KLIA is supposedly nicknamed ‘Jungle in an airport’ (or maybe it was 'Airport in a jungle'?). There are hardly any trees and plants in our ‘jungle’!

It was a business trip so it was nothing really eventful. I had my usual there – Mushroom soup at The Soup Spoon. I also got to meet up with 25-kid.

I took the evening flight back to Malaysia. To get to my seat, I had to go through the business class section. While walking in, I suddenly noticed a familiar head (hair, actually). The guy seated at the front seat was non other than... Mr. Samy Velu, our Works Minister.

So can you imagine how difficult it was for me NOT to walk over to him when we were in mid-flight to ask about the 150 years guarantee he gave (he had recently guaranteed that the Parliament building will not leak again for at least the next 150 years), about MRR2, about the toll charges and the leaks we seem to have these days, etc... I was very tempted to ask if our planes will start to leak as well... I wanted to also ask if he’s willing to carpool and let me hitch a ride back to town. I could save some money from having to pay the toll and we’d be ‘greener’. In the end, decided to just let it rest. He probably just start to rant and rave about anything and everything and not tell me anything.

In case you’re wondering... No, I’m not sure if he took the KLIA Express or he had a driver waiting for him. I couldn’t be bothered. I was tired and just wanted to get home to Mrs. Tai.
