We took a plane from Davao International Airport at around 2:00PM to NAIA3 for our connecting flight to Singapore. Our flight from Manila to Singapore was at 8:45PM so we had a 4 hour wait in the airport. There's not much to see yet at NAIA3 since it only opened last August 2008 so only a few shops and eateries around. We arrived at Budget terminal airport in Singapore at around 11:55pm. Cebu Pacific indeed have live up to its commitment and that is to depart & arrive on time. We took a car (BMW) arranged by my brother to pick us up at the airport and bring us to Summerview Hotel at Bencoolen St. It is my first time in Singapore and amazingly it is very clean. There's so many trees even as we enter the City proper.
We arrived at Summerview a few minutes past midnight and my brother met us in the lobby. There was a long embrace by my brother & mom (we haven't seen each other for almost 2 years since he's working in UK). The bellboy took our bags and noticeably he is an old man. At the back of my mind I was thinking they don't retire their personnel. The man took us in our room and demontrated in a very courteous manner how to use the hotel facilities and told us that water in Singapore are clean and that you can drink it straight from the tap. He even drank from it in assurance.
