Beyond economy...

...Lies luxury...Ladies and Gentlemen, the aforementioned airport premier lounge.

Wah...free food. And drinks. The Singaporean in me quivers in anticipation of much eating. But I'm beat and I've officially been awake for just a smidgen less than 24 hours. Ugh.

It's weird seeing the airport this empty. Usually when I fly out, the airport bustles like an anthill. It breathes and buzzes with activity. This morning, it was totally empty. It wasn't a ghost town sort of empty. It was peaceful. Like a patch of calm as the building rested for the day ahead. There was one magazine store open but like the airport, it was empty. It was nice walking around knowing that we were alone in a place that regularly sees hundreds of people at a time. It was a sense of space that was sleeping or just beginning to wake up. It was alive but not busy. In Singapore, it was a rarity. But something that I treasured greatly.

More to come.
