I was in Singapore’s budget terminal by 5:30 am. With my foggy, sleep-deprived brain I managed to check in and find some breakfast. Despite its name, the budget terminal is surprisingly well equipped. They had food, shopping, even sleeping facilities all open at 5:30 in the morning.
By the time my flight was boarding I was well fed and ready for some sleep. The pilot announced some minor delays due to the rain, I looked out my window, snapped my last photos of Singapore, and happily drifted off to sleep.
By the time I woke up we were in Cebu. Ah, sunny Cebu how I missed you.
That mountain in the distance peaking over the clouds really caught my eye. Couldn’t help thinking what the view must be like from over there!
3 hours in the air and I was home. Hello, Cebu. Did you miss me?
The P.A. system crackled and the pilot’s voice announced:
Ladies and gentlemen, we are beginning our descent to Singapore.
I look out my window to the rainy and foggy scene that awaits me and I’m giddy with excitement.
I flew from Cebu to Singapore on Tiger Airways. Flying on budget airlines is one of the best ways to start off your trip without breaking the bank. What you save on airfare you can use to treat yourself to Singapore’s yummy yummy cuisine.
Something to take note of if you are flying from Cebu, you have to pay your travel tax (before or after you check in) and the lines are atrocious. I’d estimate they get through 5 people in an hour. So if you’re flying with a buddy split up! Divide and conquer and you’ll get through a lot quicker. If you’re flying alone, do what I did and befriend other travelers to hold your place in line while you line up elsewhere.
I arrived at 4:30PM, thankfully immigration moved fairly quickly and I was out without delay. From their it was a quick ride to the main terminal to catch the MRT and meet up with my friends at the hotel. And so, another adventure begins.
