シンガポール旅行記 8/16①

シンガポール旅行記8/16~8/21まで二年半ぶりに家族での海外旅行。

今回は去年から行こうと思っていたシンガポールへ。

6月中旬に日本旅行の子供が半額になる家族ファミリープランで申し込んだがお盆を微妙に外した8月中旬出発にもかかわらず既にキャンセル待ち状態。やむを得ず、日本旅行の担当者の勧めもあってJTBの同様プランも日本旅行で申し込んでどちらもキャンセル待ちをすることとなった。

4日ほど経ってJTBのツアーは取れて日本旅行のは最後まで取れず、結局JTBの「わいわいファミリー みんなで泊まるセントーサとシンガポール 6日間コース」となった。

後述しますが、値段は日本旅行の方が安く、内容も日本旅行の同様プランの方が良かった。

8/16の名鉄名古屋7:09発の「空港特急ミュースカイ」でセントレア(中部国際空港)へ。噂には聞いていたが、このミュースカイは乗車率が高く、この日も満席だった。立ち席で乗った人も多く、それでもミューチケット(特急券)350円を徴収されていた。やはり、この列車は1ヶ月前に予約をしといて成功だった。

出発は10:10のシンガポール航空。

事前情報でシンガポール航空は冷房が強く寒いぐらいだと聞いていたが、本当に寒かった。ブランケットを肩から掛けて寒さをしのぐなんて初めての経験。同様にすっぽりブランケットを被っている人が多かった。

機体は三列シートが三つ並んでいるB777。自慢の一つが450種類以上のなかからプログラムを選ぶことができる機内エンターテインメント。

しかし、子供が普段禁止しているゲームにすかっりはまってしまった。(^^;;

エコノミー席なので席と席の間隔も広くないので目が悪くならないか心配。

当初の到着予定はシンガポール時間で15:50だが、15:30頃到着。

うまく行けばセントーサの17:30からのドルフィンラグーンのショーに間に合うかと思って急いで機体を降りる。

それにしても、広い空港で実際に入国手続きが終わり、現地係員が待つ空港ロビーに着いたのが16時をすこし回った頃。

ここからホテルまで30分程だろうからチェックイン含めて17時にホテルを出ればドルフィンラグーンのショーに間に合うはず。

しかし、案の定JTBなので他のツアー客の待ちがあり結局全4組が揃ったのが16:30頃。しかも、全員が同じホテルでなく一組がシャングリア・ラサ・セントーサなので、目的地であるセントーサリゾート&スパに着いたのが17:20頃。結局チェックインやら荷物の確認等で17:30までかかってしまい断念。

何故、日本旅行のツアーにしたかったと言うと6人以上の団体客の場合は専用車が付くので、このような混乗によるホテルの延着がなくなるということ。

今回の旅行は子供三人とニョーボの母親含めた6人なので、日本旅行なら専用車に乗れた。

取り急ぎ「イメージ・オブ・シンガポール」へ。(↑の写真)

ホテルからセントーサのイエローラインでアライバルセンターまで行き、そこでブルーラインに乗換えケーブルカーへ。

妙にリアルなロウ人形が多く、小学一年生の次男がお化け屋敷と思い込んで、恐がり早く出てしまった。

シンガポール旅行記そのあと、隣接のスカイタワーに乗って降りてきたのが19:30頃。

そろそろ食事にしようかと思ったが、19:40のミュージカル・ファウンテンに間に合いそうだったので、急いでブルーラインで会場まで。

シンガポール旅行記ミュージカル・ファウンテンが終わった頃に、マーライオンタワーがレーザー光線を出してそれを横目で見ながら、セントーサで貰ったガイドでビーチステーションの近くに出来たコーフーというフードセンターに行こうと思って行ったが既に暗くなっており、周りに人もいないエリアだったので、さっぱり分らずバス停近くのセブンイレブンで道を聞いたけれど、歩いて15分かかると言われたし、初めての場所で道もよく分らないので再びバスに乗り込みホテルまで戻った。

Tucked away in our timberland for you subconscious is an idyllic vision. We see ourselves on a long trip that timberland 6 inch spans the continent. We are traveling by train.

On a certain cheap timberland boots day at a certain hour, we will pull into the station. Bands will be playing and flags discount timberland boots waving. Once we get there, so many wonderful timberland winter boots dreams will come true and the pieces of our lives will fit together like a completed jigsaw puzzle. How restlessly we pace the aisles, womens timberland boot the minutes for loitering --waiting, waiting, waiting for the station.But uppermost in our timberland shoes store minds is the final destination. On a certain day at a certain hour, we will pull into the station. Bands will be playing and timberland eye boat flags waving. http://www.timberland4you.co.uk/sitemap.html

One Sunday womens timberland boots morning, I was told that someone was waiting for me in timberland 6 boots office. The young person who answered the rectory timberland boots door said that it was "the woman who said she left all the notes." When I saw her mens timberland boots I was shocked, since I immediately recognized her from church but had no timberland boots outlet idea that it was she who wrote the notes. She was sitting in a chair in timberland roll top boots office with her hands folded in her lap. Her head was bowed and when she raised white timberland boots it to look at me, she could barely smile without pain. Her face was disfigured, and timberland classic boat skin so tight from surgical procedures that smiling or laughing was very difficult for her timberland kids waterproof boots . She had suffered terribly from treatment to remove the growths timberland shoes that had so marred her face. We chatted for a while that Sunday morning and agreed to meet for timberland womens premium boots lunch later that week. As it turned out we went to lunch several timberland boots women times, and she always wore a hat during the meal. I think that treatments of some timberland shoe company sort had caused a lot of her hair to fall out. We shared things about our lives. I told her about my women timberland shoes schooling and growing up. She told me that she had worked for timberland 6 inch years for an insurance company. She never mentioned family, and I did not ask. I have thought about her timberland mens custom often over the years and how she struggled in a society that places an incredible premium on looks, class, wealth and all the other fineries of life. She suffered from a disfigurement that cannot be made to look attractive. I know that her condition black timberland boots hurt her deeply. http://www.timberland6inch.com/

There were timberland 6 inch sensitivity and a beauty to her that have nothing to do with timberland 6 inch boots looks. She was one to be listened to, whose words were so easy to take to timberland boots sale heart.I used to find notes left in the collection basket, beautiful timberland boots outlet notes about my homilies and about the writer's black timberland boots thoughts on the daily scriptural readings. The person who penned the notes mens timberland boots would add reflections to my thoughts and would always include some timberland pro boots quotes from poets and mystics he or she had white timberland boots read and remembered and loved. The notes fascinated black timberland shoes uk me. Here was someone immersed in a search for truth and beauty. Words had been cheap timberland boots treasured, words that were beautiful. And I felt as if the words timberland waterproof boots somehow delighted in being discovered, for they were obviously very generous to the as yet anonymous timberland work boots writer of the notes. And now this person was in turn learning the secret of sharing them. Beauty so shines when given away. The only truth that exists timberland hiking boots is, in that sense, free. http://www.timberland6inch.com/
