London and Calais Travelogue

Woke up at 6am for to catch our flight with Singapore Airlines at Changi Airport Terminal 3. Wore a comfy Island Shop dress from Tangs.

The 2 different colored fabric enables the dress to achieve a unique look which is subtle. Unfortunately it cant be seen clearly from the picture…Cute little boy that wanted to join in the photo

Time to take off, yipee!

USB port and power point available for traveler’s convenience.

The menus

Chive omelette with bacon, grilled tomato and potatoes.

Chicken thigh with white wine sauce, medley of vegetables and roast potatoes

Our complimentary honeymoon treat from Singapore Airlines :). It came with champagne but I changed it to water, as I was very health conscious at the start of the trip. Don’t want to fall sick during the long 19 day holiday!

Wish they gave a much smaller cake though, as we could not finish it.

At Heathrow airport waiting for our transfer to the hotel, Jurys Inn Islington. The standard of the rooms vary. On the first night of the trip we stayed in a small and cramped room, but on the last night we got a different room twice the size.

Dinner at a burger joint 10 minutes away from our hotel.My emmenthal cheese burger and fries

Hubby’s double patty beef burger.Unfortunately we didn’t have time to explore London as we arrived at our hotel at 7pm. But the time we finished dinner and returned to the hotel, it was about 9pm. We had to get some sleep as our coach would leave the next day at 5.30am, to avoid the jam which may arise from the morning rush and the Para Olympics.

I fell asleep while the coach was driving past the white cliffs of Dover. Hubby took a picture of a small castle on the way to the port in Dover.

The cruise to Calais (France) took about 1.5hrs. We had our 2nd breakfast on board as the cold breakfast at Jurys Inn Islington was not satisfying.

Time to explore the ferry! It was a large ferry with a huge food court, restaurant, cafe, games area and duty free shopping area. I bought Chanel No.5 perfume for my mother as the saving is about 30% compared to Singapore duty-free prices.
