Discounts With Your Boarding Pass

Singapore Airlines Boarding Pass 

Did you know that you could get discounts with your Singapore Airlines Boarding Pass?

Back in August 2012, Kim, Lucas and I took a trip to Southeast Asia visiting places like Singapore, Bali and Malaysia. We had an awesome time during the trip, visiting many interesting sites and having many memorable experiences.

While these destinations aren’t what most would consider expensive, it’s always better to save whenever you can. Continue reading Discounts With Your Boarding Pass

There was recently lots of talk about a viral post about What It’s Like to Fly the $23,000 Singapore Airlines Suites Class. The post was a pretty fascinating read however there was a lot of controversy involving plagiarism and the stealing of other people’s photos.

One such blogger that called out the writer of the viral post was Prior2Boarding blog Andy’s Travel Blog. Check out his review of suites class here and his post thanking the people of Singapore, Reddit and the world for supporting him here.

While I don’t aspire to fly Suite’s Class, it is still pretty interesting to see the discrepancy between coach to suites. (While we’ve flown business and first a bunch of times, we’re typically coach flyers. We fly coach so we can stretch our miles to go on more trips.)

Southeast Asia Trip In A Nutshell

We got back from Southeast Asia a little over a day ago and our schedules are a bit out of whack due to some jet lag. I guess it should be expected considering how much flying we did and the fact that we were on the other side of the world (12 hour time difference!).
While Kim and I had been to SE Asia twice before, it was Lucas’ first time to the area. We all had a great time, met amazing people, saw some great sites and ate some really good food.
Lucas was like a rock star/ celebrity during the trip.
Just about everywhere we went we got stopped to have pictures taken of him. This was especially the case in Bali. Bali is probably the ideal place to visit for a baby that loves attention and being held. Kim and I got to eat almost every meal with a waitress holding and playing with him. We also enjoyed a couple of massages with Lucas again being entertained by the staff.

Here are some details about the trip:
  • Countries Visited: Three– Singapore, Indonesia (Bali) and Malaysia
  • Total Miles Flown: 23,898 (data taken from TripIt)
  • International Flights: Business Class on Egypt Air & Singapore Air using United miles
  • Flights Around SE Asia:  We had three flights with budget carrier Air Asia
  • Lodging: We stayed in a variety of places, all were fine. We also used airbnb for the first time which was an amazing experience!

Some Highlights: (in no particular order)
  • The friendly people all over Bali
  • Eating at Hawker Centers- We ate at three in Singapore and one in Malaysia
  • Wandering around Ubud and visiting the Monkey Forest
  • Visiting the Petronas Towers and going up to the Skybridge
  • Constantly seeing Lucas smiling, laughing and curious during the trip
  • Checking out the amazing wood carvers in Mas, Bali. We visited the very interesting Mask Museum, stopped by the compounds of a couple of mask makers and I bought a couple of masks to add to my collection.
  • Visiting impressive temples all over Bali
  • Playing with a civet and learning about the coffee that they make

These are just some examples of the great experiences we had during our trip. I’ll be writing about many of these experiences and more over the upcoming weeks (months)!
