Experiencing Business Class for the first time with Philippine Airlines PR507

New video episode! I experienced flying with business class for the first time. YEAAAH. I fly economy. Even on most business trips. I’m not accustomed to the perks of flying business. But I can understand now why it can be addicting.

  1. Legit preferential treatment when checking in.
  2. Access to airline lounges.
  3. The seats on the plane.

In the video, I talk about how I ended up booking a business class seat. Don’t forget to hit subscribe. 🙂

Just checkin’ in! Changi Airport T4 Open House

Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 4 opens October 31, 2017! They built it in under three years. It’s situated where the old Budget Terminal used to be. Terminal 4 or T4 is not connected to Terminals 1 to 3 via the Skytrain service. But shuttles will be provided.

If the video won’t play, you can click to see it on YouTube here.

The open house was a wonderful opportunity to check out the Fast and Seamless Travel (FAST) feature. These include the self check-in (already available at the other terminals), automated Bag-Drop and Boarding Gates with facial recognition technology, and new centralised screening areas.

It is a sparkling new compact terminal that will service budget carriers like AirAsia and Cebu Pacific. It will also cater to Cathay Pacific and Korean Air. Changi Airport is Skytrax World’s Best Airport for five consecutive years. Business Insider describes it as having “received praise from flyers for its beautiful architecture, efficient operation, luxurious amenities, and dining and shopping options.”

Other upcoming megastructures include Project Jewel, a lustrous facility with vortex waterfalls that will bridge the first three terminals together. And a fifth terminal megastructure with a new runway set to open in the next decade.

Tour Melaka with me!

Finally, a new episode! This one took me longer than expected to finish after I had to reformat my laptop and upgrade some specs. I’m happy I’ve finished it. Last June, I went on a “solo backpacking” trip to the heritage city of Melaka.

Halloween Horror Nights 6 | bekpackr EP06

Here’s our little peek at Halloween Horror Nights 6 at Universal Studios Singapore (Resorts World Sentosa). This was recorded during Partner’s Night so the select rides were not open during our visit.

Halloween Horror Nights 6 was beautifully crafted and we had a great time. Much love and kudos to the cast behind HHN6. I can’t even imagine not just the prep but being in character throughout the night.

EPISODE: 8 Reasons I Love the Singapore Garden Festival

I had a great time editing this one. Taking you through 8 reasons why I loved the Singapore Garden Festival… which BTW… CONCLUDED BACK IN JULY. It’s a wonderful festival that brings together the community (students, elderly, towns in Singapore, etc…)

Don’t mind some of my sarcasm in the video but to me the festival was a treat. It’s something I’d like to take my parents to. Bring your kids, your parents, bring your relatives. LOL.

Sights and Sounds: Singapore Night Festival 2016 | bekpackr EP04

The Singapore Night Festival is on its ninth year! My friend Greg and I dropped by the first night of the four-day event (running over two weekends). It felt impossible to capture everything all on one night.

Take some time to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Singapore Night Festival! Totally worth it! I might go back next weekend if there’s still time.

This was also an opportunity to try out my new Canon G7X Mark II in low lighting. Honestly, I love the colours! See my latest episode below.
